The American Angus Association® will host its annual Angus Bull Show and Sale Wednesday, Jan. 15 during the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver, Colo. An annual tradition, it is the only Association-managed sale held throughout the year.
"We have a high quality set of bulls being offered this year in Denver,” says Association Regional Manager David Gazda, who also serves as sale manager. “Most bulls were screened on the farm by Association regional managers prior to being consigned to the sale. Bulls will be evaluated and judged by a three-person panel at the National Western."
Browse the NWSS Angus Bull Sale book online to read more about the 47 bulls being sold Jan. 15. The event begins at Noon in Stadium Arena, where the following judges will evaluate the bulls: Chris Styles, Brentford, S.D.; Jake Scott, Gordon, Neb.; and Joe Myers, Harrodsburg, Ky. They will rank the animals using a composite system to determine sale order.
After the grand and reserve grand champions are selected, attendees will be invited into the showring, where prospective buyers can preview the bulls before the sale.
Then activities move over to the Beef Palace Auction Arena at the NWSS Complex. Immediately following the auction of the 2014 Angus Foundation Heifer Package, which starts at 3:30 p.m. MST, the NWSS Angus Bull Sale will begin. Rick Machado, Arroyo Grande, Calif., will serve as auctioneer.
Real-time bidding via the Internet will also be available on LiveAuctions.TV.
