Bull Sale 2018

 We were very happy to have the day of the Bull Sale Finally here! It takes a lot of work to put a sale together and when it's finally done, it's a Nice Feeling! We'll be on the road now delivering to the various destinations.  Thanks to our customers for their support, and the many family & friends who came to help out in numerous ways. We appreciated you all.

A family reunion. 

Always nice to see the stands fill up.

A good crowd for us! 
And the bidding has begun! 

Why do these cute girls have to grow up so fast? 

Al the way from Brazil, exchange student Gabi helped us out by being the photographer for the  day.  

Long Time Friends, Gene & Bonnie Ostler took home the top selling bull today, Lot 1. He's a good one! 

We believe in the future of Agriculture, and are happy to present this check to our local FFA Chapter at Raft River High School for 1% of the proceeds from purchases within the school boundaries. 

A wonderful meal and good treats were in abundance. You know it will be good with Kay in charge! 
Thanks for the help in the kitchen.

Reflecting & Looking Ahead

Time has flown since the steer sale and things didn't seem to slow down much. Just a different season and same routines that signal a new year has begun. Looking back it was a year where we lost some who were close to us, but also gained some new additions as well.

While we cherish the memories of friends and family members who left us, we are excited for what the future holds with new babies, the next generation of kids/grandkids progressing in their lives, missionaries returning from 2 years of successful service, and Newly Weds starting their eternal lives together.

We are thankful for our blessings of having families and the privilege to be involved in Agriculture. We love the Elba Valley we call Home and are extremely grateful for associations with the good people we work with.  Let's make 2018 the best yet!

How can it be possible we are marching head on into bull sale time? Catalogs are in the making and soon to hit mailboxes. Check out this stout guy! He was one of those selected to clean up and picture, and just seems to say "Take my picture!" But there's plenty of good ones to choose from.
