Another beautiful day it was in western Montana for the Feddes Red Angus and C-T Red Angus production sale. It was a continuation of the Easter Sunday celebration as friends, family, and complete strangers came together to feast and bid competitively for these red hot Red Angus cattle. Genetics is a huge focal point in this cowherd that is culled and kept to optimize the calf crop, getting the producer that ever-coveted premium dollar. The Feddes and DeBoer families really do an awesome job growing these bulls and getting them in sale shape. They were big and thick and ready to go to work. Colonel Joe Goggins kept the pace quick and snappy and here’s the top end:
