How did Mac's sale go? How did the H2 Hummers sell? He was offering yearling H2's this year for the first time I think - I wasn't as impressed with them as the 2 year olds. Bull looks good.

Nothin' prettier than a red Ford truck, a Massey Ferguson tractor and a red-n-white Hereford sittin' on the farm.

I didn't attend Aaron. I did lose $20 on the ave pool we have every year by being the most pessimistic. I have won it once and have signed $20 bills from Mac and Ted Serienko. Only time I'll ever get cash out of them. Lol

Sale ave was $6295 on 395 bulls. Charolais ave $9100. They haven't posted sale results yet.

Yearling H2s have been there a few years now, I share your opinion, mostly because the Hereford side of them is polled from a cooperator.


Heard Bill sold a $55,000 Red Angus bull at his sale.

Vaccinations, cheaper than whiskey. ;-)

It is quite an experience to attend the sale and see 400 bulls of several breeds with one man's idea of what cattle should be behind them. I have bought bulls there since 1993.

Very decent average for the times I think. Charolais is impressive average. I was under the impression that the 2 year old H2's came off horned cows, no?

Haven't heard anything about Bill's sale.

The two's yes, they are from Mac's own cows. The yearlings aren't.
