Sandmeier Charolais, owned by Calvin and Mathew Sandmeier, hosted a big crowd of commercial cattlemen for their annual sale. They offer a large selection of big, stout, virgin two-year-old bulls, as well as an outstanding set of fall and yearling bulls.
The quality on this year’s sale ran very deep, with outstanding bulls in every pen. These bulls have lots of natural muscle, outstanding hair, and looked like they were very sound. Sandmeier Charolais is a good source for hybrid vigor which is evidenced by feed efficiency, tenderness, genetic quality, and profit.
