Benda Ranch Simmental and Simm-Angus Sale
The Benda Ranch Simmental and Simm-Angus sale, which had been rescheduled from a week earlier, was met with another cold and blustery day Feb. 15th at Kimball Livestock Exchange.

Auctioneer Justin Tupper sold 48 yearling bulls for an average of $3,065.

JBS Mr. Shear Force 708W, purebred, to Curt Plamp of Stickney, SD for $5,200.
