A tremendous set of young cattle backed by modern genetics and strong EPDs. The day was stormy and raining; however, the buyers were ready to purchase. Buyers were present from six states to purchase these high quality individuals. Included in the offering was the mother of the top selling bull at the prestigious Twin Valley Bull Sale in 2002. Many of the cattle were either from embryo programs or the females had been used in an embryo program.
