Rice’s Flag Ranch LLC Ranch Bull Sale

Bob Stoddard of Douglas, WY found many of the bulls to his liking.

Larry, Michelle and Lance Rice hosted a bigger than normal crowd for their annual bull sale at Platte Valley Livestock. Larry commented in his catalog that he knows that people have lots of choices in Angus breeders, and he thanked the big crowd for choosing his family. The bulls on this year’s sale were well-grown, with extra length of body. Many of these bulls were born in January and they physically looked like bulls, with many of them having yearling weights from 1,300 to 1,500 pounds.

For you folks that haven’t been to the Rice sale, Larry buys many feeder cattle, and especially those sired by his bulls. It sure helps the calf price when Larry bids on his customers’ calves.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 31, selling for $12,000 to Bob and Gail Stoddard from Douglas, WY. This bull had the look of a real herd bull, and he drew a lot of attention. He was out of Connealy Right Direction 3499 and out of a daughter of a Sitz Alliance dam. He had an 83 pound birth weight, a weaning weight of 887 pounds, and a whopping yearling weight of 1,633 pounds. This big, growthy bull had EPDs of +1.5 BW, +63 WW, +26 MILK and +105 YW.



Carter Family Angus from Julesburg, CO and Arrow Crown Angus from Morrill, NE bought Lot 64 at $11,500. Pictured in the catalog, he was a son of BT Crossover 758N and out of a daughter of Triple E Special Addition. With an 83 pound birth weight, he weaned at 817 pounds, and then posted a yearling weight of 1,508 pounds. His EPDs were +1.1 BW, +55 WW, +24 MILK and +102 YW. He had a rib eye area of 15.8 sq. in., and an IMF ratio of 102.

Lot 1 sold to Myron Beatty from Morrill, NE for $8,000. This fancy son of G13 Stand Out was out of a daughter of Connealy Forefront and weaned at 829 pounds. The scale showed a yearling weight of 1,488 pounds, gaining 5.13 pounds a day on test.



The Stoddard Ranch bought several more of the top bulls in the sale, including Lot 42 at $8,000, Lot 75 at $8,000, and Lot 108 at $7,750.

This was a very successful sale for the Rice family. They served perhaps the most tender and most flavorful roast beef sandwich that I’ve ever eaten before a sale.
