Bradley 3 Ranch has spent 61 years bringing innovative ideas to their bull buyers. This year was no exception as a pre-sale record crowd was given a presentation about the American Angus Association’s new commercial feeder calf program called Angus Link. Chris Engel director of the program from St Joseph, Missouri was on hand to present the program and answer questions.
Saturday was cold and crisp as bidders from 12 states purchased bulls in the sale. When the final gavel fell, 181 Angus Bulls had sold for an average of $5,184. Top selling bull was a Yon Final Answer son out of a B3R Electorate daughter presented as Lot 1. He sold for $22,000 and went to repeat buyer ABS Global. Lot 1 when scored by Zoetis for their All-Purpose Index was in the top ½ of 1 percentile. Lot 55 was the second-high selling bull at $15,000 and is headed to California. Lot 10 sold to a repeat B3R buyer in Texas for $13,500.
The Charolais offering was the largest ever at Bradley 3 Ranch as 65 bulls averaged $4,858. Top selling Charolais bull was Lot 224; B3R Ring Da Bell 813 that sold for $7,500 to a Texas Buyer. Second high Lot was Lot 223 going to a repeat buyer in Idaho for $7,000.
