Thursday, April 7, 2016 • Noon (new sale time)
Belle Fourche Livestock, Belle Fourche, SD
This year’s bull offering is the best and most uniform set we have presented yet… with length, thickness, and natural fleshing ability. These are the type of bulls that will keep you profitable-both now and in the future. We have always tried to use the top sires in the industry with balanced numbers for all traits. 70 bulls sell — the top end out of 140 bulls, and none are sold before the sale… Almost 90% of the bulls are A.I. sired. Average birth weight EPD on the bulls is 1.1 and the average birth weight on the bulls 87 pounds — half are suitable for heifer mating.
We look forward to seeing and meeting you at the sale and thank all the buyers and friends we have had the pleasure of doing business with over the years. Our commitment is to our customers — we value your trust. We strive for low input costs with maximum outcomes. Everything available to us in the way of testing has been done so that the cattle will be problem free.
The bulls are fed here at the ranch, to grow and gain on a high roughage ration, so as not to ruin the feet and add to longevity of the bull. Bar 69 bulls are run out in big pastures until weaning time, then in a large lot where they get plenty of exercise. They are ready to go to work for you.
Again we are selling 50 commercial replacement heifers. If you are thinking of adding to your cowherd, take a look at these. They will be easy fleshing, high volume cows that will maintain themselves, breed back early and raise heavy calves. Our program has always focused on the female — Great cows produce great bulls!
These heifers are sisters to the bulls selling, born and raised right here on our ranch.
We select for disposition in our cattle. From the time they are born, our cattle have been worked with horses, handled quietly, and once weaned are walked through, so that they are used to people and horses.
Because you, our customer are important to us, we will again offer our first breeding season guarantee, plus our repeat buyer credit of $50 per bull for those who purchased bulls in our 2015 sale. We will deliver your bull purchases free the first 200 miles or take $50 off each bull if you haul them home yourself sale day.
The bulls and heifers can be seen at the ranch 6 miles east of Belle Fourche until the day before the sale, after which they will be at Belle Fourche Livestock.
If you are unable to attend the sale, please remember our guaranteed bid program.
Sale Day phone number is (605) 892-2655.
See you Thursday, April 7.
