We sincerely thank you for supporting our 30th Annual Lyons Ranch Superior Genetics Sale!
2018 Lyons Ranch Sale Report
We were grateful to welcome a big crowd of customers and friends to our 30th Annual Superior Genetics Sale on Monday, March 5, 2018, at the ranch south of Manhattan, Kansas. 102 fall yearling Angus bulls sold for an average of $6125.
The top selling bull of the day was lot 67, a son of Hoover Dam out of a Connealy Thunder daughter. He was purchased by ABS Global, DeForest, WI, for $21,000. Although the stud owns Hoover Dam, they said they are in hope that this young sire proves to be a maternal powerhouse with balanced economic traits from a reputation herd.
After the Hoover Dams, the highest selling group of the day were sons of SAV Resource 1441 followed closely by bulls out of Connealy Thunder, RB Tour of Duty and Connealy Comrade 1385.
Bulls sold in many price ranges, giving all buyers a chance to take home Lyons Ranch genetics. More than 40 bulls sold for $5500 and under. Most of the bulls were purchased by repeat buyers in the state of Kansas.
Join us for our 31st Annual Superior Genetics Sale the first Monday in March – March 4, 2019
The bulls we offer annually are the result of decades of planned breeding for the traits we value, including fertility, fleshing ability, performance, carcass and calving ease. We do not breed for one number, but want a realistic, balanced product that can perform for you.
All bulls are fall yearlings, so by sale day they will be 17 to 20 months of age. No deferred bulls sell, and they are guaranteed for one breeding season. We expect them to continue to contribute to your herd for several years.
We utilize GE EPDs and DNA testing on every animal, making each young bull’s EPD accuracies as high as if he had already sired from eight to 20 calves. This allows you to have the most confidence in your decisions and the best chance for profitability.
We are fortunate to see the demand that Lyons Ranch-sired calves generate in the yards and on the rail. However you choose to market your cattle and at whatever stage, know that there is great value in using Lyons Ranch genetics. We will do our best to help you reach your short and long-term goals.
