October 5-6, 2007
Concord, Ark.

Concord, Ark. -- When they first walked in the door, guests at the inaugural Chimney Rock 500 Sale hosted by Bill and Gail Davis of Chimney Rock Cattle Company, knew they were in for a very special event. Chimney Rock's new 33,000 square foot sale facility and event center, was the talk of the beef industry and the cattle featured generated buzz throughout the Brangus breed. The October 5 and 6th event drew nearly 200 potential buyers and sold cattle to twelve states.

The Davis' dream of hosting a unique event designed to highlight not only their breeding program but also the Brangus breed and allied breeders, was realized as hundreds of cattleman packed into their ranch in northwest Arkansas. Chimney Rock combined their registered bull, female and commercial female sale with a first of its kind un-haltered registered pen show. The Pen of One Show was won by Oaks Ms Singletary 133T owned by The Oaks Farm, Joe and Katherine Kassler of Newnan, Ga. The Oaks Farms decided to sell 133T in the female sale later that day and she commanded a final bid of $10,500 from the partnership of Cavender Ranches, Bullard, Texas and Star G Ranch, Ben Wheeler, Texas. The Pen of Two Show Grand Champion was two heifers sired by Suhn's Affirmed 416N4 shown by Cavender Ranches. The pick of these two heifers, CB Ms Affirmed 517S, was purchased by Perry Ranch of Pauls Valley, Okla., for $5,000.

Leading off the female sale was the once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a 1/3 share in three embryo transfer flushes of one of the greatest living females in the Brangus breed, Lot 1, Suhn's Miss Cadence 331L2. Draggin' M Ranch, John and Sherry Milam, El Dorado, Ark., topped the aggressive bidding from a host of potential buyers at $35,000. A similar flush package from Lot 2, Miss CC Cowboy 55F2, was the second highest selling lot at $20,000 and purchased by Corlay Farm and Cattle Company, Dr. J.T. Crawford of Huntsville, Texas.

Draggin' M Ranch returned to purchase the third highest selling female of the night. The Milam's paid $14,500 for Lot 56, CR Ms Bright Side who sold with a super fancy heifer calf at side sired by the Chimney Rock herd sire, Newt of Brinks. The fourth high selling female lot was Ms CRC Blackhawk 331S12. The exciting young open heifer was sired by Blackhawk of Brinks and out of the popular Chimney Rock donor, Suhn's Miss Promise 331J14, a maternal sister to 331L2. Roberts Ranch, Alan and Robyn Roberts of Giddings, Texas paid $14,100 for Lot 29.

The 73 registered females sold on Friday night averaged $4,959 and 50 pregnant recipients averaged $3,202.

On Saturday, bull buyers were treated to a stout set of Brangus bulls featuring both herd sire prospects and beefy, range bulls. Lot 134, CRC's Blaney 99S10, a Tex of Brinks 59N10 son, had many friends in the audience and after active bidding commanded $7,100. Blaney found a new home at Zottarelli Ranches, Angelo Zottarelli of Austin, Texas and Indian Hills Ranch, Buck Thomason of Cranfills Gap, Texas. The second high selling bull was a yearling bull sired by Chimney Rock's own Blackhawk of Brinks, Lot 220, Mr CRC Blackhawk 331S11. Registered breeders Don Thomas & Sons of Moberly, Missouri paid $4,800 for this exciting young herd sire prospect.

The 100 registered bulls sold on October 6th averaged $2,595 followed by an impressive average of $1,507 on nearly 300 commercial females.
