Although the Faith area has had a lot of snow, sale day for the Sletton Angus was decent weather for the crowd of mostly repeat buyers which came to bid against each other to buy these good bulls. John, Tammy and Jessica Sletten were on hand to greet their customers, and answer questions about these bulls.

Although the Sletten bulls have always had a lot of performance, John has now bred these cattle to have a lot more body mass to go with more depth and overall muscle. This set of bulls scanned outstanding rib eye measurements, and several of the sale bulls were out of pathfinder cows.

The bulls are wintered in a rough pasture with a lot of hills – that makes these bulls travel, and helps them develop into the sound breeding bulls that the Sletten’s have presented over the years. The Sletten family have continued to improve their cattle, and produce bulls that work for commercial customers. This is perhaps the most uniform, solid set of bulls that John has brought to town.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 946, selling for $10,000 to Pine Creek Angus of Faith, SD and McPherson Angus of Sturgis, SD. He had EPDs of +2.9 BW, +53 WW, +23 MILK and +88 YW. Sired by Stevenson Cattleman R142, he was out of a daughter of GDAR SVF Traveler 234D who had ratioed 106 on five calves. His birth weight was 88 pounds to go with a weaning weight of 701 pounds. He scanned a phenomenal REA of 19.6 sq. in. to make him an outlier in the genetic population.

Pine Creek Angus also chose Lot 959 at $5,750. I thought this was an extremely interesting bull, being very stout in his head and neck area, with a tremendous amount of volume to go with the extra depth through his flank. At 78 pounds, he was also a calving ease bull that was lighter boned, but had extra performance. He had a weaning weight of 670 pounds, and a yearling weight of 1,324 pounds. His EPDs were +0.1 BW, +45 WW, +20 MILK and +84 YW. He scanned a REA of 15.9 sq. in. and was sired by Connealy Thunder. He was out of a pathfinder daughter of B/R New Dimension 7127.

Repeat buyer John Kari chose Lot 990 at $5,000. This son of HA Image Maker 0415 was out of a daughter of Koupals B&B Rainmaker 9020. His EPDs were +2.4 BW, +54 WW, +26 MILK and +94 YW. John Kari also chose Lot 977 at $4,750. He was by Connealy All Around and posted EPDs of +3.1 BW, +52 WW, +25 MILK and +85 YW. Scanning a rib eye of 15.6 sq. in., he had an IMF of 4.49 percent.

Lot 909 sold for $3,500 to Dan Jordon from Faith, SD. Born at 74 pounds, he was sired by Mytty In Focus and out of a daughter by Northern Improvement. He had a weaning weight of 681 pounds and a yearling weight of 1,239 pounds.

It was a great noon lunch that only the Ulrich girls can supply!
