Reported by Dick Helms
A crowd of progressive cattlemen from 10 states took home 115 herd bulls at the 38th Annual Nebraska Flying H Genetics bull sale.
The red Balancer® bulls topped the sale offering at an average of $5,886 with the top bulls all being ET calves. Sale topper was lot 104, a Bieber Hard Drive out of the Flying H 51P 171Y donor going to longtime customer Jones Ranch in Alabama for $10,250. The four Hard Drive ET brothers averaged $8,700. An outcross red Balancer was produced by two black (red carrier) parents—Flying H Effective 40A and donor dam Flying H Sandman 80A. He went home to Beastrom Ranch in South Dakota for $9,500.
The Gelbvieh bulls averaged $5,821, topped by four flush Leverage sons out of the great Flying H Ms Ideal 355Z. Herd bulls went to Hillcrest Farms, Iowa for $7,750 and Wilkinson Gelbvieh, Colorado, for $7,500.
Topping the black Balancers were ET brothers by Barstow Cash and Flying H Ms Ideal 355Z. Voss Farms, Nebraska, took home their choice of these brothers at $10,000. The four Cash sons averaged $8,125.
Volume buyers were from Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
Selling more bulls for a higher average than last year showed the genetic strength and demand for these “BRED 4 PROFIT-BUILT 2 WORK” bulls.
