Treftz Limousin Bulls Burn Up Auction Block; Average $5218

Action was not in short supply during the 1st Annual Treftz Limousin Bull Sale, February 11, as commercial ranchers went after TREF bulls with distinct fervor! A standing-room-only crowd walked through the pens of bulls – primarily red in color – prior to the sale and approved of what they saw. Not until the last rap of the gavel did the bidding stop. The bulls were stout and carried good flesh – but not fat. Glenn Treftz and his family made sure everyone in attendance was comfortable and didn’t leave a customer question unanswered.

    These are the real limousin bulls that will add pounds from birth to rail.

  • Robert Miller says:

    This was a great sale with wonderful results for the Limousin breed. Let me see yes we say black —Aangus certifed beef —gives a premium. But does it make up for the added pounds that a Limousin gives a calf? I serously do not know the answer to that question. All I know is that we are selling two(2) things pounds and quality.

    In looking at the offering and the prices it is obivous that quality sells. And this was a qualtiy offering of cattle no matter the color.

    I did also note the most of the high sellers were either percentage or Lim-Flex.

    But, above all else Congrations to a great breeder with the buyers in his area wanting the type of bulls and cattle he is presenting to the public
