46 Ylg bulls: $3,896.74
30 Ylg heifers Averaged $1,480
Dave and Jeremy Fordahl once again brought to town an outstanding set of both bulls and heifers. One thing comes to mind about this operation and that is the concern for the consumer. The Cedarflo motto “We’re family farmers depending on family farmers” definitely rings true when looking at this set of bulls and heifers. The offering was raised on milk and grass and developed on a high roughage ration. This is a true testament to the confidence the Fordahls have in their bulls and the concern they have for the buyers, they know they are getting a complete package. I thought this was a smooth looking set of Angus cattle that would add class and profit to any operation. Here are a few market toppers today:
Lot 43, Cedarflo Excitement 43, a Basin Excitement son sold for $8,500 to repeat customer Boyd Ellingson of Shadehill, S.D. This bull’s EPDs were BW 1.5, WW 65, YW 120, and Milk 28. His actual weights included 86 pounds at birth and a 754 pounds Adj. 205.
