It was not all serious business-only at the first annual Harvest Angus Bull Sale held on March 14 at the BC Livestock Co-op yards in Williams Lake.
Cattle producers from throughout B.C. and even some from Alberta came mainly to purchase sires for their cow-herd, but they also found time to visit with old friends or make the acquaintance of some new folks.
Ken Allison was a successful bidder on a couple of bulls, buying one for himself and a second bull for a rancher from the Clinton/Cache Creek area who was unable to attend.
Gord Neil was the top-bidder on several bulls, taking home: Lot No. 7 — Harvest Hot Shot 2B for $5,100.; Lot No. 15 — Harvest Mountain Man 40B for $5,000; and Lot No. 22 — Harvest High Roller 48B for $5,100.
Other local buyers included Jace and Shawna Jacobsen of Big Lake and Chimney Creek Ranch (Bill Stafford and family) of Williams Lake.
