A packed house bid aggressively to own this set of bulls. Gib Yard- ley and family had these bulls in great shape and they displayed extremely well.
They have had a lot of winter in this part of Utah, which is tough on the cattle and the folks. It snowed 5 inches during this three-hour sale and eventually closed the interstate. Cattle were sold to breeders in 11 states to many new as well as repeat customers. Volume buyers were Fillippini Brothers and C Ranches in Cresent Valley, NV; Culver Cattle Co,. Lafay ette, CO; and Kunzler Ranch, Park Valley, UT.

The offering was nicely displayed in large pens that made for easy viewing for the buyers. Along with the LH cattle, Blue Sage Acres, Sage and Andy Kendall and family have a strong offering of Angus bulls. There were some interesting and strong pedigrees in this sale, with four flush brothers out of a QAS Traveler 23-4 daughter that met with excellent demand. All in all, this was a very strong sale for a program with a bright future in the purebred business.
