It was a fine day at Lemmon Livestock in Lemmon, SD for the legendary 37th Annual Production Sale hosted by Evenson Angus. This longevity in the cattle business is attributed to the high quality livestock that the Evenson family produces. They combine their long-running pedigrees with new age genetics that make carcass data fly off the charts. The bulls offered had a smooth Angus look to them with volume that packed a punch. The heifers in the offering were a nice even set with a feminine look. I can’t say much more about them that people don’t already know. In 37 years of selling bulls, the whole country knows how good they are. Reported here are the top end:
