Wilken Angus Sale



Date: Nov. 27, 2020

Location: at the ranch, Meadow South Dakota

Auctioneer: Doug Dietterle, Meadow, South Dakota

Reported by: Dan Piroutek and Scott Dirk

Averages: 137 Two-Year-Old Angus Bulls – $ 5783

Wilken Angus, owned by Gary and Lori Wilken, and their family, hosted a very large crowd for their annual “Black Friday” (day after Thanksgiving) two-year-old Angus bull sale. For the first time, this sale was held at their ranch. The Wilkens offer big, strong, two-year-old bulls presented in their every day condition. Many buyers tell me how they like the dispositions, longevity, feet, and legs on these bulls.

There were many repeat buyers, which is a testimony to the way Gary treats his bull customers. The sale was very competitive from start to finish, and the food was fantastic.
