Bullis Creek Ranch Spring Production Sale
Rob and Brenda Brawner of Bullis Creek Ranch (Wood Lake, NE) didn’t have the sale conditions they hoped for due to a nasty blizzard in April but everything went well considering the circumstances. Because of the weather, their Red Angus fall-calving dispersal had to be moved after their “Generations of Predictability 9″ bull sale on April 6th. 22 Limousin bulls and 34 Red Angus bulls were offered up at auction, with a good number of bulls sold over the internet via DV Auction. The bull sale grossed $136,880 to average $2,444. The following is a sale summary as reported by Dean and Bev Summerbell of the Heartland Limousin Association:
- 56 Limousin & Red Angus bulls grossed $136,880 = $2,444 (avg.)
- 22 Limousin bulls totaled $53,988 = $2,454 (avg.)
- 34 Red Angus bulls totaled $82,892 = $2,438 (avg.)
