The Rio sons and daughters both are exceptionally well proportioned until they get past that "yearling" stage at about 15-18 months, then tend to be slightly leggy, but not enough to turn you off. I don't know what the cows will look like because the oldest we have are 18 months.
All the bulls we had on test this past year were in the 6-7 frame score range and wide and deep. There was one that frame scored a 7.5 but out of a big tall cow.
Rio has been a joy to have around, every time I drive past him I have to get out of the truck and scratch his back or he'll stand there until I come back through. I have never seen a more gentle bull. His calves have good dispositions also. Good luck tomorrow! My wife has informed me that I'm NOT going to be bidding.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

wow that was the hottest sale i have ever been to. Lot 99 sold for 40,000 and there was one at 47 and a couple more over 10. The charolais averaged 6100-6300 somewhere and the blacks averaged 4900.

After the sale I heard Bryce Lindskov say the "whites" averaged 6100 and the blacks 4700. They had a million dollar day and definitely deserved it. Brent works really hard for that average---it's easy to sell the good high, but tough to maintain that high of an average throughout the entire sale.

The high Char was $47500 (I think, I know the $47000 part but might have been $47750 or 250) and second high was $42000). Sorry I don't know what the high selling Angus was--maybe 10 or 12 thousand???

Also Lynn Weisharr (?spelling) is a great auctioneer--some of the great sale needs to be attributed to his talent.

Mike I was looking forward to meeting you at the sale--and was disappointed when Brent said you weren't going to make it.

Great cattle and great people--

Congrats to them all---

TTB, I appreciate the news from Isabel and wish I could have attended and met you also. More than you know. Oh well, there will be another next year.
Tax time plus a couple of family crisis' kept me here.
Have a good day. Mike

LT sale

Postby Hangna » Mon Apr 18, 2005 10:13 pm

We were there and it was hot. We bought Lot 24 and 84.
You are correct, you'd have to go a long way to beat the Lindskovs and Thiels.

Leslie, I suspect you did good with your choices at the sale. I have never used any 9108 blood in my herd until this year. (I bred some Rio heifers to Easy Pro) Hope they do you well! Mike
