The Campbell family held the annual Campbell Red Angus production sale at Mobridge Livestock, Mobridge, S.D., on Mar. 7, 2016.
This was an outstanding set of bulls and open heifers that the Campbell family brought to town. This operation has not chased the fads of the “bull of the day”, but has stayed true to breeding functional Red Angus cattle that will excel in all aspects of the beef industry.
With the addition of new bloodlines to the base cowherd that was started in 1973, this set of bulls really showed a lot of muscle expression and thickness. For most, this set of bulls would be outcross genetics from the mainstream Red Angus cattle.
The high selling bull on the day was lot 1, CBR Epic 312-52, a Mar. 2015 calving ease son of Sanderson Epic Journey with a 700 lb. weaning wt. and yearling wt. of 1308. The bull has EPDs of BW 0.2 WW 73 YW 117 Milk 16. Terry Johnson, Firesteel, SD was the buyer at $7,000.
