I wasn't aware they were having a sale tomorrow but I've been to 3 previous sales at DVF and last fall I bought 3 bulls from them. They run a top notch operation and their service is excellent.

Good luck and enjoy the sale!

I actually won't be attending the sale..I am going to pick up some Hereford heifers I have bought instead!! :D :D :D

I just saw the sale book on AAA and was very impressed. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out!

I have heard nothing but good things about DVF. Apparently, they have decided to sale every female they have over 3 years old between this sale and the fall sale... some pretty big time donors and herd builders for sale, at least in my opinion.

Oh wow! That's a heck of an opportunity. I wish I were more liquid at the moment.

Agreed! I could be wrong, but I expect ALOT of money to be spent tomorrow.

I’d be there but my daughter’s bday party is tomorrow. I’ve bought some cows and heifers from them last year and really liked everything about them. JP is a good guy too and the food is awesome.

Just curious, why would they clear out EVERYTHING over 3 years old? A large percentage of them are sired by Ten X, is there something they know that everyone else doesn’t?

Several members on here are not fans of Ten X or MYYTY in Focus. I’ve had no problems with either. But then again I disagree with most members. LOL!

I would probably go for the Connealy Capitalist daughter if I were in the market. I saw one about halfway in the sale book.

Over the last year I’ve seen several operations do this, selling off older cattle (Fink did it). Could be they have too many coming down the pipeline, to keep the older part of the herd or they just feel the newer genetics are superior. I have a date with Deer Valley on June 24th, I’m touring their operation.

That might not be legible. It’s on the Angus.org site.

My guess is that DVF trust their breeding decisions. If you make the right breeding decisions your heifers should be the best animals in your herd. Brookhill, why not sell everything over 3 years of age? And what do you feel is the downfalls of doing so?
