I visited Hyline Van Dyke Angus sale, just as last year. This was actually on February 28th, the day before the BLIZZARD!!
This was not my call but Jim asked me to see if I want to go "Bulls of Bitterroot Sale" in Stevensville, MT. I says "sure!!"
He had something or "someone" in his mind...........
Bidding started....... The very first bull = Lot #1 = was Jim's soul-mate....... With some intense bidding (or sales?) tactics and some nervous moments, he won. The bull he won over would be perhaps the best bull (with too much expecting future on his shoulders) walking in Montana, if not in entire US. If you are interested in the bull and semen availability, or progeny availability in the near future!, check with Felton Angus Ranch (http://www.feltonangus.com/)
I visited "Southwest Montana Angus Association Bull Sale" held at Montana Livestock Auction Yard in Butte (Ramsay).
Though being 120 miles away, there actually were lots of sellers and buyers from Gallatin County. Indeed very local!!
