It was a fine day at Belle Fourche Livestock for the Annual bull sale of Strohshein Angus. What makes this offering stand out among its peers? Nothing but the finest genetics that will improve the maternal, fertility, and docility traits in any and all herds that these bulls are applied to. That’s the best thing about these bulls, all while being developed in a way that they can grow up right and last a long time. All the swimmers in the gene pool were nicely covered with a phenotype that was easy on the eyes. They were a balanced set of bulls that were long and green and ready to go to work. Colonel Jaggers got the show on the road and never looked back. Here is the top end:
