It’s always a pleasure to be at Kist Livestock in Mandan, ND for the Flying W and Rock Creek Red Angus herds. New to the helm is Ressler Land & Cattle, so look forward to the creativity of these guys in the future. The bulls offered this year were, as always, some solid, grown-out two-year-olds with a lot of bone and structure. If there were a need for a mature bull that should hold up, this would be a good place to look. In the offering were some fancier show heifers you’ll ever lay eyes on or put your hand in the air for, they were in short supply so the bidding was fierce on these girls. Not many words in my vocabulary to describe the rest of the sale, Colonel Dustin Carter kept us trucking along, and here is the top end:
