Wow, how beautiful the days are getting to be this spring. The day was as nice as ever in Baker, MT at the Bull Palace for Lund’s B Bar Angus Bull Sale. There is always a decent sized crowd here and a very loyal following. I think the reason is the fact that customers are not buying recent fads and overfed bulls, but are buying into a program that believes in sound high quality cattle regardless the sire. These bulls had a consistency among them that included length, depth, soundness, and a smooth Angus head. Everyone noticed the disposition on these bulls. They were hand fed and each one enjoyed a little rub. Good people and good cattle make for good sales and this was very good. After 40 years there is a switch in colonel duties and Scott Weishaar did a great job. Reported is the very top:
Lot 380, B Bar Balance 3806, topped the sale at $10,000 heading to Ekalaka, MT with the McCabe Ranch. This SRS Balance 0609B son was born 3/7/16 at 90lbs and was 856lbs on his 205. His EPDs are BW 0.8, WW 64, YW 99, and Milk 28.
