I was planning on going but instead I am home with two sick kids. Really hate to miss it since Val is a good friend of mine but what can you do. I hope to make the trip out to Russel tommorow to pick up a steer that I bought from him for my son if we can get out of the medical ward here. The only problem with that is now I have to miss Aldens sale. I wish both families all the luck in the world with their sales they are both outstanding operations ran by even better people.
I attended their cow sale yesterday. Top cow was lot 15, the dam of the Golden Child Steer they sold for $20,250 this fall. she sold for 11,000. She is out of a Meyer 734 son and bred back to Golden Child.
Second top seller at 5,400 was lot 58. A Charolais cow.
