42 yearling bulls averaged: $4,013
It was a fine day for a bull sale in Lemmon for the Gumbo Hill Ranch 12th Annual Production Sale. What a pleasure it was to represent a set of bulls that were as thick, long, and deep as anything I’ve seen all year. The bulls in the offering were developed on free choice long-stem grass hay, and bunk-fed a well-balanced bull ration. The soundness, fertility, and longevity are things not taken lightly while the bulls are developed and they reflect that in every step they take. Gumbo Hill bulls are capable of increasing weight in feeder cattle as well as making good replacement heifers. The only thing nicer than the bulls was the family that raised them. Congratulations to the Mollman family on a successful sale. Here is the top end of the program:
