This sale was postponed a day, as this South Dakota winter once again dropped some snow along the Missouri River. The sale is held just north of the Nebraska border and the Sandhills, and it drew ranchers from both states. Dan and Lyn Forgey and family offered well-grown bulls that will perform for commercial cattlemen. Quite a few embryo transplant (ET) bulls were offered in this sale, as well as many half-brothers.
Because of the tough weather, the Forgeys were left with some bulls.
