This happened a few years ago. We have a guy in our area that tries to sell bulls off his farm as purebred red angus even though he doesnt have a papered cow or a angus membership. Well one of our neighbours bought one cause they were cheap but suprise the bull didnt breed a single animal b/c he wasnt semen tested and he never could breed do to a testicle injury. So we rented him a bull for the rest of his breeding season. Well the guy obviously didnt stand behind his bull so the next year he took him to the auction mart to sell for slaughter. Well the day before the sale he got a phon call from some other local guy that toured the aucion mart looking for a bull and saw this bull and really liked him and wanted to know more about him. So the neighbour told him that he was a good bull and said he bred good and that they just didnt have a use for him anymore b/c he was a heifer bull and they werent breeding any heifers this year. So the guy bought the bull and took him home and semen tested him and suprise he didnt pass (infact the vet told him remembered this bull from last year) well the guy was made at my neighbour but we both thought that i was quite funny. The thing that made me mad was the auction mart and them giving out the information about who brought the bull knowing that the guy that was buying him was going to breed cows to him. As a guy that sells registered red angus bulls this gets me b/c some people say that its the breed and they wouldnt buy one of those bulls again. I did have an argument with the aucition mart manager about it asking how come they give out this info and also why he wouldnt try to convince people to not but market bulls for breeding when the local pure bred breeders support that auction mart very well.
