Ludens Family Limousin’s “Pride of the Dakotas” Production Sale
Eager Limousin bull buyers helped to push the 2010 Ludens Family Limousin “Pride of the Dakotas” Production sale average over $2,200 to average $2,202. A myriad of buyers from across the north central region arrived early Saturday, April 3, to the Ludens farm near Viborg, South Dakota. Stout Limousin bulls were extremely sought after – especially the Ludens Family Denver bulls. A good set of 2-year-old bulls complemented the yearling sale offering very nicely. Another sale feature was a group of bred females nursing calves or carrying the service of some well-known AI sires. The cows were attractive, good milkers, and sported quiet dispositions.
- 28 Limousin lots grossed $61,650 = $2,202 (avg.)
- 13 Yearling bulls grossed $31,800 = $2,446 (avg.)
- 10 2-year-old bulls grossed $19,300 = $1,930 (avg.)
