Brenner Angus Annual Production Sale
Date: Feb. 23, 2013
Location: Kist Livestock, Mandan, ND
Average: 72 Bulls – $3,153
Sid and Melva Brenner, along with their daughter Priscilla and her husband Jeff Werner, hosted their annual sale in Mandan. This sale had normally been in Bismark at the former Farmers’ Auction Market. Sid believes in having longevity in his cattle. These bulls are greener than most bulls you’ll see, but they still have length and natural thickness. They definitely run their cattle the way everyone else does, the cattle have to pay the bills. The barn was full of repeat and new customers alike. The sale was fast paced and with quite a few customers buying volume.
