Pine Coulee Black Angus Bull Sale
The annual Pine Coulee Black Angus Bull Sale on March 9th was a huge success. The sale was held at the Yellowstone Boys & Girls Ranch in Billings, MT, on an unfortunately cold and blistery day. A large turnout of repeat buyers braved the cold to purchase a set of bulls full of quality. Pine Coulee Bulls is a partnership between Jim Stampfel, John Carrel and their families.
Pine Coulee bulls are long bodied, heavy muscled, full of eye appeal and packed with performance. The “Pine Coulee Program” emphasizes on raising cattle designed for the commercial cattlemen. The Stampfel and Carrel families have strong relationships with their customers, as proven by the number of repeat buyers present on sale day. Stampfel and Carrel go the extra mile to serve their customers by freeze branding the tattoo on each bull and BVD testing the entire offering. They also provide free delivery, free wintering until May 1st, volume discounts, footrot vaccinations, and a one breeding season guarantee. If all that wasn’t enough, they aid in the marketing of your product in the fall.
