There was a very nice crowd for the 38th Annual Evenson Angus bull sale. This is a lower key operation that focuses on producing excellent bulls with a little more frame than most, but the extra frame does not take away from the thickness and natural fleshing ability. For the past 10 years Evenson Angus has finished out their feeder cattle at their feedlot, just out side of Hettinger, ND. This year’s calves finished 100 percent choice with over 57 percent going CAB.
