Excellent set of bulls offered by T.J. & Jeanine Gabriel and family for the 21st Annual Deep Creek Angus Bull Sale. T.J. is very meticulous when it comes to deciding which cows stay in the Deep Creek herd. When you read the footnotes on the sale bulls, you will notice several of the dams are multiple generational pathfinder dams. The same runs true when selecting herd bulls and AI sires. Predictable, sound genetics make for great cows that make great bulls.

The top selling bull on the day was Lot 5, Deep Creek Brigade 959, a 1/19 son of Ellingson Regiment 6263. Powerful herd bull prospect with weaning ratio of 113, yearling ratio 112 and epds of BW 1.6 WW 76 YW 132 Milk 32 to repeat buyer, Doolittle Ranch, Midland, SD for $11,500.

As in past years, several Deep Creek Angus bull customers were guest consignors at the sale with large drafts of commercial open heifers sired by Deep Creek bulls. This year the top draft of commercial heifers was 40 head from Doolittle Ranch weighing 891 lb. and selling at $1,400 per head.
