Stomprud Angus, Larry and Eileen Stomprud, held their 7th Annual “Hard Grass Genetics” bull sale on April 25, 2011 at Faith Livestock Commission. Stomprud Angus is a smaller, no-frills operation located in the native hard grass country of Western South Dakota near Mud Butte.

Stomprud’s registered herd is treated the same as their commercial herd – with little supplementation besides mineral and hay in the winter months. If a cow or a calf can’t cut it in this environment, then they’re cut from the program. The artificial insemination (AI) sires that Stompruds have used over the years emphasize growth, good EPDs and carcass traits. The bulls definitely showed these traits and were ready to go to the pasture.

The top-selling bull was Lot 4, a 3/27/2010 son of ALC Big Eye D09N out of a Centennial Hero 188 daughter. He sold to John Heidler from Opal, SD, for a final bid of $3,750. He had EPDs of BW 3.1, WW 52, YW 90 and Milk 29.

There were three bulls that sold for $3,500. Lot 2, a 3/22/2010 son of ALC Big Eye D09N out of a Bon View New Design 208 daughter, sold to Dan Keri from Bison, SD. He had EPDs of BW 0.6, WW 47, YW 87 and Milk 30.

The next bull to sell for $3,500 was Lot 12, a 3/30/2010 son of Mytty In Focus out of a CRR Dateline 7270 N165 daughter. He sold to Marlin Brink from Union Center, SD. His EPDs were BW -0.7, WW 51, YW 93 and Milk 20.

Lot 14 was the final bull to sell for $3,500. He was a 3/22/2010 son of SUA Grid Maker 4189P out of a TC Total 410 daughter, with EPDs of BW 3.6, WW 62, YW 104 and Milk 20. He went home with Mel Dutton from Faith, SD.

The next two top-selling bulls sold for $3,000 each. Lot 13, a 4/3/2010 son of Mytty In Focus out of a GAR US Premium Beef daughter, with EPDs of BW 0.7, WW 44, YW 84 and Milk 23, sold to David Gaer, Pierre, SD.
