It was a fine day in Belle Fourche, South Dakota for the Annual Rockingtree Red Angus Production Sale. The bulls were in really good condition, pulling together some good traits of length and depth. The goal of this operation is to raise cows under 1200 lbs, eat less than 30 lbs of dry matter per day, all while weaning a calf that weighs over 45 percent of her body weight. These bulls do look the part of efficiency and I believe Randy Hallock is reaching his goal. The structure on these bulls made for a large majority calving ease offering. Here are the top sellers:
Lot 6, IRTR 1522, reached for the stars at $6,750 and is heading to Alzada, MT with Jack Owen. Sired by Brown JYJ Redemption Y1334, this bull posted EPDs of BW -6.1, WW 44, YW 78, and Milk 19. He was born 2/14/15 at 72lbs and has a 699lbs Adj. 205.
