It was another fine day at Buffalo, Wyoming for the fourth annual Crump Red Angus Forever Red Bull Sale. It was another record-breaking sale with bulls and females available within reach of any type of customer. What makes this sale so special? First of all the Crump family is an outstanding group of people and herdsmen – you can count on hospitality on this outfit. Secondly, they have a cowherd that is second to none. They run in large pastures throughout the rough Powder River breaks, so you can guarantee these bulls are in good rig for breeding cows.
