W4 Hereford Sale

Postby Brute 23 » Thu Sep 28, 2017 10:25 am

Has any one done business with them? Looks like they have some nice bulls. I'm debating going to their sale on Oct 20 to check it out.

PM me if you would like to share you experience in private.

And looks like they still have some horns.

I have not bought any bulls but I have purchased a few cows in the past. They are good folks. The bulls are rugged, well bred with good feet. They raise them on a rocky hilly pasture with water on one side and their food source on the other to build up their legs and feet. Most of them are sold to the big west TX ranches and their are repeat buyers buy in quantity.
Some years they have more bulls than customers so if the prices start falling below their minimum, they will let you know that the sale will end after the next 5 bulls or so. Make sure you get their in time for lunch.

2 YO bulls probably around $3500 to $4000 . Younger ones maybe a little cheaper. I would bet you can buy a good 18 month bull for 3K after the first 50 sell.
If y'all go, try to get there early enough to drive through the ranch. Its a neat place along a big creek that feeds into Lake Whitney. Also notice that they use Big Bend trailers almost exclusively.

Some nice bulls priced reasonable. I'll definitely be heading that way next year.

It was tough going back and forth between that sale and the Gonzales sale. Wish y'all would have never shown me all these online sales. :)

They were selling bulls for $3000 earlier this year before the sale. I talked to them a few times but just found a good registered bull 20 minutes from home. Didnt want to make that 6 hour trip. What were the price ranges?

I didnt see right out the gate because I was at lunch and I didn't watch the end because they went to kind of plain old bulls IMO. I caught it right under $4k and stopped around $2500 or so and went back to the Gonzales auction.
