Slovek Ranch Angus and Angus Plus Genetics Annual Bull Sale
Date: Mar. 24, 2020
Location: Philip Livestock Auction, LLC
Auctioneer: Dace Harper
Reported by: Dan Piroutek
66 Bulls – $3,561
The Slovek Ranch is northwest of Philip, and owned by Bill and Pennie Slovek, and their son, Bo. They hosted a good crowd of neighbors, friends, and repeat buyers, who made for a very active sale from start to finish.
Bo Slovek sells registered Angus bulls, while Bill has SimAngus and Angus Plus bulls. These are high quality bulls with hybrid vigor due to the cross with Simmental cattle.
This year’s offerings were well-grown and very sound on their feet and legs. I thought that this was the most uniform set of bulls they’ve ever brought to town. They were quiet and easy to work with. The Sloveks feed many cattle, and pay attention to carcass quality.
