This has been a good year through and through from beginning to end. This sale was no different, even late in the season. It really was a nice day in Miles City, Montana, at Miles City Livestock, but the thing that stuck out to me the most was the ripping set of bulls waiting for assessment in the back pens. Not only were they of good kind but also, all the high selling bulls had different sires. That confidence in a cowherd gives any customer a loaded weapon when turning these bulls out. They were in excellent shape and had a classy Angus look. With a big hip, deep rib, and wide back I think all customers top to bottom are going to be satisfied. Colonel Rob Fraser kept it brisk and rung the bell on a few of these high sellers:
Topping the sale at $9,000 was Lot 56, CCAR Sirloin B313. This Vermilion Sirloin son, purchased by Bar 7 Cattle Company of Lindsay, Montana, posted EPDs of BW 2.5, WW 66, YW 112, and Milk 23. He was born March 20, 2014, weighing 84 pounds and has and ADJ 205 of 800 pounds.
