The Fall of 2012

Had a exciting fall with good cattle sales as well as enjoyed attending some shows.  Congratulations to all the buyers and sellers that attended the sales I sold.  I believe that the quality of cattle get better and better each year at each of my sales.  I had a first time sale in Farmington, MO where I sold the Performance Tested Bull Sale, I remember attending this sale when I was very young with my Granddad when he sold bulls there.  Again this year I served as one of the Auctioneers for the Sydenstricker Genetics Production Sale, this was there 60th Anniversary sale and a record 1.8 million dollars worth of cattle sold for a average of $4141 per head.

As well as good sales the show were also enjoyable, going to the Tulsa St. Fair where our Simmental bull OBCC Park Ave. M91X was Reserve Grand Champion.  At the American Royal he placed 2nd in class behind the Reserve National Champion Bull.  We also went to Louisville and took in a couple days watching the Angus Jr show as well as attending some of the Angus meetings and Foundation Reception.  It is always good to go to the shows and get to see so many friends from all over the country.
