It was the epitome of a spring day in St. Onge, S.D. at St. Onge Livestock for the 4th Annual Wilson Ranch Bull Sale. The bulls looked in ravishing condition with buyers poring over them prior to the sale. The bulls offered have been developed to add pounds, performance, and outstanding females to any outfit. It was another packed house with a lot of interest ringside. I was impressed with the condition of this offering, they were full of muscle, depth, and were not overly fat. Here are the sale toppers:
