It was a little windy in Dickinson, North Dakota for the Annual Friedt Herefords Production Sale but not enough to keep the buyers home. There was a good crowd in attendance to appraise a set of bulls that'd blow anyone away. There was definitely a bull for every program that'll consistently add performance and pounds. The females offered were backed by traits of good milking functional udders and carried a pretty clean look. Here are the real head turners of the day:
