There was a sea of white at Kist Livestock Auction in Mandan, ND for the Doll Ranch's 37th Annual Production Sale. The white was not an accumulation of snow like it's been all winter, but a wide collection Charolais bulls. These bulls had backs wide enough to pack the kids home off the bus sitting side by side. They were well muscled, long, and had good hair. To compliment their look, they had a powerful set of genetics that would pack weight on any set of feeder cattle. The Simmental bulls didn't miss a stride. They were long and muscled up dudes that were packed full of performance. One Charolais heifer was sold for $2,500 and four Simmental heifers averaged $2,938. Reported here is the top of the bulls:
