The 13th Annual Saskatoon Gelbvieh Bull and Female Sale was again very successful. With a three-day blizzard across much of western Canada the sale was postponed until the following day, giving everyone a little extra time to dig out through the snow drifts. Cattle presented by Fir River Livestock, Stone Gate Farm and the Davidsons were considered to be some of the best. Due to the blizzard the Davidson cattle did not arrive but were sold by means of sale cattle pictures projected on a screen.

Their first choice was FIR River Ronny 652Z at $7,000. 652Z is sired by MGF Rig Rocker and out of a DCC Rikhards Red sired dam.
