There are things I learned from last year. There are several changes but also others that remain the same. One of good things that remain the same is that Felton Angus Ranch (www.feltonangus.com) bull sale is the first one in the area and the first one for me to visit.
Check out the recent episode at The American Rancher.
Last weekend (8th & 9th), brutal coldness loosened its grip; warm enough for me to go fishing!! We were expecting some more improvements on Monday, 10th. It remained cold but comfortably so. Perhaps the most importantly, we didn't have bone-chilling winds, which are typical around here. Bulls were ready for their big day!
Sale seemed to have gone well. I could tell from expressions = happy smiles = of ranchers who had purchased bulls.
Last but not the least, I was "publicized" in their sale catalog: just a scene from my contribution of breeding their yearling heifers last spring.
So it was a good start of the season for me as well as for ranchers around here. I plan to visit some more bull sales around here for next two months. I will see you there!
