40 Yearling Bulls $4,170
Jason ZumBrunnen and family brought another excellent set of bulls to town for their 3rd Annual production sale, held at the Niobrara County Fairgrounds, Lusk, WY.
This year’s sale was a couple weeks earlier that past years, but that did not have any effect on the quality or condition of the bulls selling. The bulls were in just right condition for the sale, not green, but not over fed. These bulls are structurally correct, performance evaluated and grown out to stay sound in the breeding pastures.
There was an excellent crowd of buyers on hand to evaluate and purchase this set of bulls with several new buyers competing with the repeat buyers to give the ZumBrunnen family an excellent sale.
