Waynesville Bul sale results

The Waynesville bull test sale held on January 8, 2011 had the following averages; total sale $2182.60, Angus $2157.89, and Simmental $2300. A total of 23 bulls of the 24 offered were sold on that day. One bull (#81) listed in the catalog was scratched from the sale due to health problems. The high selling bull brought $5000, which tied the previous sale record set the first year of the Waynesville bull sale. Attendance at the beef conference was fairly low due to the snowstorm, however there were plenty of buyers at the sale. Thanks again to the sponsors of the beef conference and bull sale Southeast Livestock Exchange, Carolina Farm Credit, North Carolina Farm Bureau, and Sevier Farmers COOP.
