Brad and Trixie Grill and Jeff and Diana Grill along with guest consignor Fick Red Angus welcomed a good crowed to their 12th Annual “Red Western” bull sale on April 8 at Crawford Livestock, Crawford, Nebraska.
These bulls are moderate framed to fit the rugged terrain they are raised in, and are easy fleshing. The bulls are not fed hard for optimal gains, but slowly developed to express their natural genetic ability. The Fick Red Angus bulls are managed with the same philosophy and these outfits compliment each other quite well. With spring born yearlings, fall bulls and two year old bulls, there was a bull to fit any cattlemen’s operation and price range.
This is a smaller sale on numbers but the quality will rank up there with many of the top sales in the region
