Herefords top all breed commercial bull sale

Two Hereford bulls consigned by Ernst Herefords, Windsor, Colo., topped the Western Heritage All-Breed Bull Sale, Jan. 21, at the National Western Stock Show in Denver.

Of the 31 bulls sold, the high-seller was a Hereford yearling bull, which sold for $4,250 to JC Feagin of Blue Ridge, Texas. Also consigned by Ernst Herefords, was the second high-seller at $3,000, a 2-year-old bull that sold to 7D Ranch, Cheyenne Wells, Colo.

Marshall Ernst, owner of Ernst Herefords, says, "There has been more enthusiasm and more interest from producers about Hereford bulls than I've seen in a long time, as more cattlemen realize the value of the baldie cow as well as the advantage of the black baldie in the feedyard."

He adds, "I think our bulls were in the right condition, with the right muscling and structure to attract buyers' attention."

The first-ever Western Heritage All-Breed Bull Sale was targeted toward commercial cattlemen with the goal of adding more activities to the second week of the National Western, according to Ernst.

Herefords are proving themselves the efficiency experts through research, and Hereford and Hereford-influenced calves are gaining demand through the Certified Hereford Beef and Hereford Verified programs. Also, the baldie, or Hereford-Angus cross, is one of the industry's most sought-after cows.
