Annual Sedgewood BULL SALE 

Saturday, April 24, 2021

We have 50 Angus bulls being developed for our next annual Sedgewood Bull Sale to be held Saturday, April 24, 2021 online at www.AngusLive.com . We will select the top 35 thick, muscular, docile 18 month old bulls weighing between 1400 and 1800 pounds to be in the sale.   

Buyers can bid online at www.AngusLive.com  or leave absentee bids with us.  Absentee bids will be started at the floor price and raised only if there are higher competing bids.  Make an appointment to come by in the weeks before the sale to walk through the bulls and make your selections.   Go to the bottom of this web-page to see the list of bull candidates, their EPDs, and pedigrees, etc.

***We will update data and add the bulls' photos when we get closer to sale day***

The photos of last year's bulls (bottom of page) show the quality of Sedgewood Angus bulls.

Results for the 2020 Bull sale

Our 2020 Bull Sale had 42 active bidders from three states competing for 32 bulls. All 32 lots were sold with 15 bulls going for over $5000 each.   Sale average was $4,603.  

Thank you to everyone for making our last sale a success!!  A super big THANK YOU goes out to Greg Lee, Bill & Mindy Rutherford, Lloyd Ousterhaut and Frank Nichols who have bought a total of 54 bulls over the last 18 years!!

****************************************************************************

We need more bulls!! Work is underway to increase the number of bulls in future sales.  We are working to breed cattle that will be at the top for ALL the important traits: Calving Ease, Weaning Weight, $Maternal, $Weaning, $Beef, Marbling, Docility, Feed Efficiency (RADG), good feet, and Heifer Pregnancy EPDs.   Others brag that their bulls are tops for weaning weight, or for $Beef, or for Calving Ease, etc.   In the next few years, Sedgewood will be one of the rare breeders that can deliver bulls in volume that not only have great phenotypes but also top the breed for ALL the important EPDs.  

 

We have worked hard for the last 26 years to improve the quality of our bulls.  Not being satisfied with the rate of our progress, we ramped up our Embryo Transfer program 3 years ago to build a donor quality Registered Angus female herd.  We are almost there.  There are 12 ET 1st calf heifers that are flush sisters to our top ET bulls that have calved this fall.  There are 19 fantastic ET heifers out of Gardiner, Thomas, EXAR and our T29 donors that were weaned in June and are bred to calve in fall of 2021.   Another 35 world class ET heifers were born in October and will be added to our breeding herd this fall.  Go to the Embryo Transfer tab to see our ET matings.

 

Adding 60+ donor quality ET females to our herd will get us closer our quality goals.  Next we will work to increase the number of quality bulls we offer each year.  We plan to make donors of our best ET females and use sexed male semen to significantly raise the number of top bulls we raise each year.   We will never stop working to increase the quality of our Sedgewood Angus cattle.

Thank you for your support.  We look forward to seeing you in the future.

 

Sincerely,

Bill Howard
