There was a very nice crowd of new and repeat buyers that braved the windy, cold, blustery day to fill the seats for the sale.
These bulls were in great working condition; they had been fed and developed to handle any environment. These bulls were deep-made with natural thickness and great dispositions. There was a mix of sires in the offering, giving buyers plenty of options from calving ease to growth.
