This year Powder River Angus and Rafter T Angus were blessed with a beautiful day that made for excellent viewing of the bulls and safe travels for new and repeat buyers.

The packed house made for some excellent bidding and a great sale overall. Neal took the microphone from Auctioneer Mark McNamee, and explained that their program creates bulls that can stand up in any condition. They take great pride in their mother cows raising a sound, structurally correct calf that will show the pounds at weaning time.

Powder River Angus says it all, “Bulls born and raised where the corn don’t grow!” The bulls from both families had great dispositions and were in great working condition and not overfed.

Powder River Angus and Rafter T Angus, have an excellent following of loyal repeat buyers because they stand behind their bulls 100 percent. These bulls can work in either the purebred breeders operation or for any cow-calf operation. This set of bulls made for one great sale.
