18 Month Old Bulls: $4,167
Strohschein Angus, owned and operated by Mic and Anita Strohschein, held their annual bull sale at Belle Fourche Livestock this year. The warm, but windy conditions blew in an active and eager set of buyers to bid on the bulls this year. There were many repeat customers in the seats as well as new faces from Wyoming, Montana, and South Dakota. The bulls this year, like always, were a nice set of calving ease herd bulls with great dispositions. They grew up really nice, with most of them being off first calf heifers, no thanks to the aftermath of the 2013 October storm, Atlas. I look forward to watching this program progress in the years to come!
There was a long list of top selling bulls in this even set of cattle.
Lot 4, 4 Stroh 2759, a March 29, 2014 son of MCC Daybreak 2411, was one of eight that topped the sale at $5,250 this year and went home with JD Greives from Upton, Wyoming. This low birth weight bull born at 72 pounds grew up quite nice and posted EPDs of CED+11, BW+.2, WW+51, YW+90, and Milk+22.
