Arrow Brand Genetics Angus Bull Sale
Date: April 17, 2013
Average: 44 Yearling Angus bulls – $3,301
Justin Green and Jared Benson held the second annual Arrow Brand Genetic Angus bull sale at Stockmen’s Livestock, Dickinson, ND. Even though this is a relatively new sale, the genetics of the cowherd are true and tested, most originating from the late Dale Luhman’s cowherd.
This was a stout set of long-bodied bulls. The bulls have been developed to express their genetic ability and not overly pushed. The bulls were sired by some of the most sought after bulls in the Angus breed and backed by a solid herd health program and first breeding season guarantee.
