John, Tami, and Jessica Sletten hosted a good crowd of cattlemen on a cold afternoon for their annual production sale held at Faith Livestock. The rolls and donuts hit the mark on this cold day. Their ranch is south of Faith. This was the 31st sale for the Sletten family, and it has been remarkable to watch these cattle improve over the years. Many repeat buyers have stayed with this program from the beginning. Since it was Valentine’s week, many roses and chocolates were passed out.
