An overflow crowd started arriving early on a sunny day to study and bid on a superior set of GROWN ON GRASS bulls offered by the Flying H Genetics family. The athletic, muscular bulls that offered Gelbvieh, Simmental, Angus and Red Angus genetics were appraised by buyers from nine states with many new friends and customers taking home their first Flying H bulls.

Two bulls topped the sale; first was an 18-month-old Show-Me Select Heifer qualified black Balancer® going to Jeff Platt for $7,000. This 5 Star genetic package came from Arp Gelbvieh. Also bringing $7,000 was a black FUSION sired by SimAngus sire, Wish Maker, out of a Balancer dam by Flying H Professor 22W. He sported 5 Star genetics, was Show-Me Select Heifer qualified and found a new home with Joey OBrien.

Demand and quality were both strong ending with a sale that averaged higher than last year.
