Buffalo Creek ‘The Final Chapter’ Bull Sale 2011
Buffalo Creek Red Angus, owned and operated by Jack and Gini Chase, held the final chapter sale concluding their 40-year dedication to the Red Angus breed. The sale was packed with commercial cattlemen and women and several purebred breeders that have witnessed the advantage of Chase’s 40 years of breeding experience. Jack and Gini and family are grateful for their customers, that have turned into great friends. Buyers expect nothing else from Buffalo Creek Red Angus than a set of bulls that are structurally correct, have calving ease, are moderate framed, and muscular with great fleshing ability. The Chases wish the best for their customers and hope they continue to reap the benefits from their hard work and genetic selection.
