This was a very powerful set of bulls on the sale, backed by a very maternal cowherd. I was impressed when I saw this set of cattle in the North Dakota Stockmen’s Tour last fall and even more impressed to see bulls developed and in sale condition.

The bulls were developed with the rancher in mind, not overdone, but in very good condition. The Barenthsen-Bullinger outfit sells bulls to a lot of neighbors and repeat buyers, that tells you these cattle work.

Also in the offering was a fantastic set of females. The females were broody, deep bodied and will make excellent cows in most any environment.

Topping the bulls was Lot 67, Bar M Designer 102W-1218, a March 28, 2011, son of OKCC Direct Design 102W. This deep sided, thick made herd sire prospect had EPDs of: BW 2.3, WW 56, YW 95, Milk 18 and is out of a very productive Glacier bred cow that has a MPPA of 106. OK Cattle, Towner, ND was the buyer at $11,000.
