Bright skies and warm January temperatures set the stage for the Rafter T Angus Inaugural bull sale on Jan. 14, where it was beginning to look a lot like spring. The snow was slowly melting in the parking lot. The Kretschmans’ and their crew welcomed buyers.

Warm hospitality and breed-leading Angus cattle made for a great day in production agriculture, as cattlemen and women turned out from across the nation to select genetics from the Rafter T program, which is based on cattle with foraging ability, structural soundness and fertility.
