Mick and Lynn Varilek, along with their son, Ross, continue breeding cattle to meet the demands of the beef industry. Although the weather was not perfect around South Dakota on sale day, a good crowd was on hand to make this a very competitive sale.

They use DNA testing, EPDs, and carcass ultrasound to assure that bidders know exactly what they are buying. They confirm their Angus profile with GE-EPDs.
