Finished our AI breeding on the cows, this year we used AAR Ten X, Connealy Black Granite, and Apex Windy 078. The heifers were bred to AAR Ten X and Sedgwicks Lookout.
The Midland Bull Test sale was very strong with 437 Angus bulls averaging 5337.00. Our lot 97 bull was the second bull through the ring selling to Deep Creek Angus of Idaho and Silver Plume Ranch of Nebraska for 19000.00.
What a sale!!! Snyder Livestock's use of video and TV screens in lieu of using a live ring, to save distress on the bulls, worked very well. This year's sale was well attended as the weather held out to create yet another successful sale.
We would like to thank those that attended the sale and purchased bulls this year, especially McDonnell and Armstrong Angus of Columbus, Montana, for purchasing the high selling Champion, top RFI bull.
Lucy Snyder awarded Hone Ranch not only the award for the Champion Bull, but the Best Consignment, and Best of Breed Awards at the panel discussion event Saturday evening. Lucy, we truly appreciate you and your team for all of the hard work that goes into putting together and hosting such a fantastic sale.
Pressing forward towards the Midland Bull Test to be held in April. View our Snyder page for buyer information, the Midland page for sale bulls and our Private Treaty page for bulls here at the ranch.
Down on the Ranch
Located just minutes away from Lake Tahoe, we enjoy the beauty of the snow capped Sierra Mountain Range, summer grass of the high desert and the Carson Valley that we call home.
