This helps ensure volume buyers an opportunity to build a larger lot. Bid carefully, as you will be expected to purchase any lots sold to you, regardless of your needs. All bidding by the “per head” basis.
The “Light” cut bull and heifer calves are retained annually and sold next year as Yearling Bulls, yearling heifers are traditionally kept for replacements.
50+ of these mixed calves are from the Rock Creek Tribal Pasture. These calves are all from Brownotter Cows/Bulls. They are building their herd annually!
