We headed north to McCumber’s, its an Angus ranch through and through. We went as TSLN disciples, paired up two-by-two. The Tastad family was our host, nicer people you’ll never find. Some compare them to this report, and that is “one of a kind.” These bulls were stout and masculine, their backs a mile wide. They had muscle oozing from their hip, huge rib eye on their side. People packed the house up and down, money in hand to spend. So that’s what I’ve got reported, keep reading for the top end:
