Deer Valley Farm in southern middle Tennessee is a good one. Not sure when they are having it this year. Usually in March.

Deer Valley is on my list to hit soon but I don’t think it will be this spring. Sydgen sale in MO is also on my go list hopefully this fall. Beef Expo would be a good experience too but I have to much going right now to get there.

Headquarters for Hindquarters in Harrisonburg Va. Don Benner of Benfield Angus and another farm both put it on. We have bought several there over the years. Mid March, maybe the 17th. Probably too far east/north for most except maybe the Va crowd.

If you can find a sure date for that I would be interested. I will look it up and see if I can find it. You are from that area do you have any knowledge about Maymont Angus? Saw an ad in the Journal for their sale in a few weeks and am thinking pretty serious about going.
Thanks
Steve

Headquarters sale is March 17 at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds on Rt 11 just south of Harrisonburg, Va. I think you can google it and info will come up. Sale starts @ 12 or 1 but there is lunch there and a chance to walk the pens and look at the bulls. 20 some years now. They are big on grass type genetics. We got a bull from them that they had imported from Montana back about 10 years ago because he was ready to move him and we liked the calves. He has done alright for us. Then we bought a young easy calving bull a couple of years later, and another the following year. Still are using both of them. Bought a plus weight young bull 2 years ago and put him out this fall with a group of 40 cows after he got another year on him. Will see how we like the calves. The calves out of both easy calving bulls are small, compact, and the heifers have had them with no problem. They are a bit smaller framed, but have used them on some cows as cleanup and they are average sized at birth. All have had good dispositioned.

Knollcrest has a very good reputation. Hoping we can go to the sale this year just to see. It is in April I think. Quaker Hill I don't know much about but have heard the name often. I thought they had a fall sale but maybe have a spring one also. I don't know that much about Maymont either although they are north of me above Harrisonburg Va. Will have to look up their sale. We are in pretty good shape as far as bulls go right now. But we weren't really looking for a bull when we bought the plus weight one at the Benner sale 2 years ago. Just thought he looked pretty good, the price was right so we got him. Let him grow a year and then put him out this fall with a good sized group of cows. We have 2 bulls we really like the calves out of so have used them on our bigger groups of cows. Some pastures we can only run 10-15 cows and some have 40. We have alot of bulls because of that. Sometimes it is just a good day out and able to see and meet other farmers too.
Benfield Angus has/had a bull in the Select Sires beef catalog .
