Randy and Vicki Nelson of Carpenter, S.D., hosted their 13th Annual Production Sale at the farm with standing room only. Nelson Angus Bulls are naturally thick-made and easy fleshing bred for use and longevity. They were humbled by many repeat buyers and greatly appreciated the new interest that took the time to see what they had to offer. It was a good sale and was topped off by a very nice set of commercial Angus heifers. Randy and Vicki say, “There is no bigger compliment than being included as a part of your operation by using a Nelson Angus bull.” The sale was more than just a sale with current and retired cattlemen taking the opportunity to “shoot the bull,” per se. The Nelsons appreciate the local support and confidence of buyers from as far away as Howes, S.D.
