GENETRUST @ Suhn Cattle Company
March 27, 2018
150 Brangus & Ultrablack Yearling Bulls Gross $784, 550 to average $5230.
A cold and damp day in the Flint Hills of Kansas caught fire indoors as a packed house aggressively sought the genetics offered in the 25th anniversary sale hosted by GENETRUST partners Vernon & Vicki Suhn at Suhn Cattle Company, March 27th in Eureka, KS. Buyers from coast to coast gathered to consume the powerful offering, with bulls selling from Florida to California and all points in between.
Topping the impressive selection of herd sires as the high selling individual was Lot 5, Suhn’s TTT LM Signal 30E13, from Suhn Cattle Company. This son of the breed leading Three D, was also a full brother to Majestik Beacon and wrote an elite birth to yearling spread in combination with a functional and free moving phenotype that landed him on the wish list of many. Following a hotly contested race to the top, he was selected by two progressive Brangus enthusiasts, Jimmy Trice, Triple T Brangus, Fayette, AL and Nic Cornelison, Lake Majestik Farms, Flat Rock, AL at $40,000 for ½ interest and full possession. Following directly behind in the sale order in similar fashion was Lot 135, Suhn’s CN Trinity 919E2, another Three D from Suhn Cattle Company. Once again posting curve bending type data, his calving ease, growth and carcass combination captured the attention of Randy and Samantha Nugent, of Cross N Farm, Olla, LA, and they quickly snapped up the ½ interest and full possession being offered at $26,000. A power packed herd sire prospect landed as the third high selling individual, in Lot 70, Suhn’s Synergy 416E23, again sired by Three D and again from Suhn Cattle Company. Stacked with power from end to end, his performance, type and exceptional maternal base garnered the attention of Bill Davis of Chimney Rock Cattle Co, Concord, AR, as he was the last man standing with the winning bid of $25,000 for ½ interest and full possession.
By mid-afternoon 150 Brangus & Ultrablack bulls found new homes at an average of $5230 to gross $784,550. The volume buyers were Randy Garrett, Geary, OK, Wyatt Bourdette, Hollister, CA, Paul Young, Austin, NV and Salvador Rodriguez, Durango, Mexico, with the majority of cattle landing in the Midwestern states of Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, as well as west of the Rockies in Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado and California.
The next offering of GENETRUST genetics will be May 7-8th through the Spring Fling online embryo auction, hosted by DVAuction.com. The power packed fall sale season kicks off Nov 2-3rd at Chimney Rock Cattle Company in Concord, AR with 150 Brangus & Ultrablack bulls, 100 ELITE Registered Brangus & Ultrablack females and 300 commercial Brangus females.
