It was an incredible day in Wyola, Montana, at the Pass Creek Angus Ranch with some great bulls and a few ranch geldings to fit anybody’s program. First to sell were the ranch raised, ranch used, and ranch broke geldings. They gathered a lot of attention as a 7 year-old paint topped them at $4,800. The bulls were in excellent condition this year packing muscle in the hip and depth in the rib proving the Rathkamp’s motto, “Flesh should be bred on, not fed on.” I’ve said it before, these are a good set of masculine cowboy bulls ready to get out and go to work. It was a successful day, here is the show stoppers once the smoke cleared:
The Biddick Ranch of Laramie, Wyoming, walked away with the high selling bull at $10,750. Lot 13, Pass Creek 0035 982 4052, is a SAV Final Answer 0035 son with EPDs of BW 1.7, WW 59, YW 97, and Milk 23. He was born Feb. 15, 2014, weighing 90 pounds and weaned off weighing 835 pounds Couldn’t help but like this bull.
They didn’t stop there; purchasing Lot 5, Pass Creek 13 0203 4023, for $9,250, the Biddick Ranch also won the bid on the B/R New Frontier 095-13 son. His EPDs include BW 1.3, WW 42, YW 80, and Milk 25. He was born March 11, 2014, weighing 77 pounds and posted 725 pounds at weaning.
Lot 78, Pass Creek Romeo 975 3184, a SA Romeo 1421 son, sold to Mimi Tate of Sheridan, Wyoming, for $8,250. I liked this fall bull; he had EPDs of BW 1.5, WW 48, YW 105, and Milk 24. Born Aug. 8, 2013 weighing 80 pounds and was weaned off tipping the scale at 695 pounds
