Bulls Eye Ranch and Satterfield Ranch teamed up once again for their biannual production sale, Genetics By Popular Demand. Every other year the ranches join forces and hold a live and online sales event. This was the year for their sale, so on October 16th there was large crowd of Brahman enthusiasts in Bryan, Texas at the Texas A&M Beef Center ready to bid on these great genetics.
“We were really excited about all the new breeders that came for the event,” explained Charolette Smith, of Bulls Eye Ranch.
There were breeders from Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Texas at the Beef Center, while bidders from all over the United States and Mexico were bidding online at Cattle In Motion.
“This year we decided to do a little something different and offer a breeding interest in one of our top females,” explained Dr. Scott Satterfield of Satterfield Ranch. “We were very pleased when the gavel went down to see that Sam and Nan Duplantis, of D Bar Ranch, bought this lot.”
The auctioneer was Derrick Smith of Bulls Eye Ranch and at his side talking the cattle was Clayton Bridges, ranch manager of Satterfield Ranch.
The high selling gray heifer was Lot 9, MISS BER CACTUS ROSE 815, who sold on the internet for $55,000.
