Taubenheim Gelbvieh, Amherst, Neb., held their 29th annual production sale February 4, 2019, at the ranch. We caught a great day for the beginning of February and the sunny day brought out many customers from seven states to evaluate the powerful set of herd sires and attractive group of females.
Top Selling Bulls:
TAU Money 62F ET, is a 3/8 Gelbvieh homozygous black and homozygous polled son of GGGE 3G Ez Money 209Z out of the elite donor TAU Ms. Gridiron 131Y. 62F was a standout at the National Western Stock Show, and after catching the eye of many cattlemen, Money found a new home with Cedar Top Ranch for $12,500.
TAU Limitless 34F ET, a homozygous black and homozygous polled herd sire was purchased by Eric Schipporeit, a great repeat customer. 34F ET is a soggy middled, powerfully constructed son of Infinity 47C, and an impressive donor female 131Y. After active bidding TAU Limitless 34F ET sold for $11,000.
TAU Lightyear 111F was the next high selling lot at $10,000. 111F is a homozygous black and homozygous polled son of TAU Infinity. He demanded a lot of attention for his mass and stoutness. 111F made a lot of friends on sale day and when the auctioneer said, “sold” he found a home with Swanson Cattle Company of Atlanta, Nebraska, at $10,000.
TAU Mr. Leverage 335F ET, is an easy fleshing and stout featured homozygous black and homozygous polled son of Carolina Leverage 3214A. Mr. Leverage was highly sought after for his performance and power; when the bidding was over he found a new home with T & B Genetics for $9,500.
Our top selling purebred bull TAU Mr Gunnison 64F is a homozygous black and homozygous polled bull out of Rupple Gunnison N31, and a magnificent first calf heifer. Mr. Gunnison is the type of purebred that could change a cowherd, and Greg McFarland noticed his quality and purchased him for $8,750.
