I have worked with Shawn and Diane Booth, Booth’s Cherry Creek Ranch for several years, but this was the first time the calendar worked for me to attend the sale. I must say I was impressed with the great set of long aged bulls. The bulls in the sale had gone through a rigorous selection process of performance testing, progeny testing, PAP testing and I50K testing to meet the demands of the large crowd of buyers on hand for the sale.
