The “Ladies In Black” female sale was hosted by Dan Lewis and Don and Beau Ravellette and their families out at the Grandview Ranch. A good crowd gathered on this beautiful fall day, and these families provided an excellent opportunity for Angus enthusiasts to purchase outstanding Angus females. A wonderful brisket and burger lunch was served before the sale.
Some of their top cows, as well as bred heifers and calves, were in the offering. They also brought a tremendous set of fall pairs that were met with high demand.
The sale moved along rapidly, producing some really good results. Video bidding was available, and some buyers used this method to view and bid on the cattle.
The females were presented in superb condition, and the spring and fall calves were well grown, healthy, and ready to move on to their new homes.
