What a difference a year made out at the Pass Creek Angus Production Sale in Wyola, Mont. With weather cooperating, the crowd size surpassed the number of bulls so it seemed. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am impressed with these rugged pasture bulls. They are bred to calve easy and wean heavy while being able to convert feed post-weaning. From the womb to the dinner plate these bulls are made to push all programs to that next level. Hats off to the Rathkamp family on an outstanding sale and the best piece of meat served for miles. Here is the very top of the program:
