Black Ranches, Inc. & Nine Iron Seedstock Annual Production Sale

Black Ranches, Inc. and the Nine Irons Seedstock producers showcased another top set of bulls for their annual production sale. This was the biggest crowd, and the best sale since I’ve had the opportunity to help with.

The Nine Iron Seedstock Producers consists of the following families: Butch and Peg Black, Lakeside, NE; Vince and Lori Poppe, Ellsworth, NE; Karl and Janice Hueftle, Cozad, NE; Bob and Betty Lindner, Durango, CO; Darold and Lorna Tomsheck, Oilmont, MT; Jake and Bree Poppe, Colorado Springs, CO; and the R.D. Sutphen family, Lakeside, NE. This group of breeders have combined their talents and genetic resources to provide a big group of outstanding western ranch bulls. Their bulls are fed together and really blend well to make this an excellent offering for their many repeat commercial bull buyers.

I felt this was easily the best overall offering that had ever been produced for this sale. The competition for these bulls was strong, staying very consistent throughout the sale. The bulls sold well throughout.

Top-selling Angus bull of the day was Lot 45, selling for $6,000 to the Krause Cattle Company from Alliance, NE. This bull was a son of SS Objective out of a daughter of Hyline Right Time 338. Born at 81 lbs., he weaned at 711 lbs. and attained a yearling weight of 1,239 lbs. His EPDs included CED 9, BW 1.5, WW 65, YW 118, Milk 30, MARB 0.56 and REA 0.57. Along with this good bull, the Krause Cattle Co. received a 50X hat from the Marshall Hat Co. in Alliance, NE.

Headlining the black composite/hybrid portion of the sale was Lot 76, selling for $6,000. His new owner is Slash 2 Livestock from Glade Park, CO. This good bull was a son of the black Simmental bull, In Dew Time. Out of a cow by Morgans Direction, he was born at 78 lbs., posted a 740-lb. weaning weight and 1,347-lb. yearling weight. His EPDs were BW 1.7, WW 56, YW 94 and Milk 21.

Harry Sutton from Ashby, NE, bought the top Red Angus/hybrid bull in Lot 148 at $5,000. He was a halfblood Simmental bull sired by GCF Mr. Amigo out of a daughter of Cozad. With an 84-lb. birth weight, he weaned at 710 lbs. before growing to a yearling weight of 1,280 lbs. to ratio 113. He also had a 40-cm scrotal measurement.

The Jamisons from Ashby, NE, bought the commercial heifers at $1,100. They were awarded a pair of boots from the Stetson/Roper Company.

The top-selling horse was owned by Butch White, and sold to Warren Thompson from Atwood, CO, for $6,000. Warren also received a pair of boots from Stetson/Roper Co. for purchasing this top seller.

The high volume bull buyer was Wayne Fasholtz from Padlock Ranch, Ranchester, WY. He was rewarded with a 100X hat from the Marshall Hat Co. in Arthur, NE.

A great sale for the Black Ranches and Nine Iron Seedstock. The hospitality here is second to none. First they serve grilled burgers and brats, and then after the sale the party really starts with a menu that included grilled steaks with mushrooms and onions on the side, plus a potato dish that was as good as only my mom could make. If you don’t believe me, come to the sale.
