Excellent day for Craig and Peggy, and Ron and Lois Bieber on their spring bull sale. There was a big crowd of buyers on hand to sort through the bulls and give the Biebers a very successful sale. Bieber Red Angus is known for producing top quality Red Angus cattle that work for the purebred breeder as well as commercial cattlemen.
There were several herd sire prospects at the top price range, but also plenty of bulls selling in prices to fit all bull buying budgets. Again the hospitality was great and the steaks and refreshments after the sale are always worth staying for.
