Yesterday, February 11th, I visited Felton Angus Ranch, just a short drive from Livingston, in Springdale, MT. I was at Montana State Animal Science about the same time with manager Jim. It's been quite a while that I saw him!!!! With Roger Jacobs as an auctioneer, they sold over 200 bulls and a set of bred-cows. It was really fun to be there.
No, he wasn't for sale!!
I really had fun at both ranches. I'm going to analyze why some bulls were so popular and bid for such grand prices. Genetics, blood-lines, ranchers' interests & tendencies, etc., etc....... As a Master Breeder, it's also fun to consider those factors!! That will help me when I choose AI bulls for breeding projects for each ranch or ranchers' needs. I will be visiting more sales around here till April!! See you along the way!!
