Results of our April, 2022 BULL SALE

  

Our annual Sedgewood Angus Bull Sale was held again at AngusLive.com on Saturday, April 30, 2022.  The sale averaged $4,800 per lot with 32 bulls selling into three states.   

I want to thank Cypress Branch Farms for taking the D202 bull for $12,500.   D202 is an incredible bull combining muscle, super calving ease, super growth, $Beef and maternal traits with the docility of a puppy.  James McCurdy plans to collect D202 and market semen.  There is not a better overall genetic package in the AI stud catalogs.  Contact me if you want to use this bull in your AI program.                                         

Most of the bulls went to repeat customers or their friends.  Two outstanding bulls were selected as herd sires for the Mississippi State University Experiment Station herd.   

Go to our Bull Sale page to see individual bull data for the sale.

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

We never stop working to increase the quality of our Sedgewood Angus cattle.   Our replacement females must be docile, with good phenotype and be at the top for the important EPD traits.   Others brag that their bulls are tops for weaning weight, or for $Beef, or for Calving Ease, etc.   Sedgewood is one of the rare breeders able to deliver bulls that are docile with great phenotypes and top the breed for the important EPDs.  

 

Adding top quality ET females to our herd is getting us closer to our goals.    We ramped up our Embryo Transfer program 4 years ago to build a donor quality Registered Angus female herd.  We are now picking our best ET females to be donors and doing IVF with sexed male semen to increase the number of quality bulls we raise each year. 

 Go to the Embryo Transfer tab to see our ET matings.

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

 

Sincerely,

2021 Bull Sale Results

A big THANK YOU goes out to Cypress Branch Farms for taking the top bull, C209, at $8,000 and Dennis Dean for taking C234 for $7,000.   Bulls sold into three states with 9 bulls going to Louisiana and Tennessee.   

A computer program error made a mess of our sale and the resulting confusion really hurt.  Sale average was $3,850 which was lower than last year's $4,600.   

2020 Bull Sale Results

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.  

A super big THANK YOU goes out to Greg Lee, Bill & Mindy Rutherford, Lloyd Ousterhaut and Frank Nichols who have bought a total of 59 bulls over the last 18 years!!
