2009 Alabama BCIA Fall Roundup Bull Sale

Thanks to our buyers!

The Alabama BCIA Fall Roundup Bull Sale is over and we just wanted to say thanks again to the folks that came out to the sale and to those that purchased Gizmo Angus genetics. I know that Michelle Elmore and her staff work very hard to put this sale together each year and they do a great job. There is also a sale committee that works hard to make sure that the consigners bring bulls that are going to work for their new owners. The sale is for performance proven 2 & 3 year-old bulls this year it included Angus, Charolais, Chiangus, Limousin, LimFlex, Simmental and SimAngus. The sale also features BCIA genetic verified heifers.  Over the years we have had the opportunity to meet and get to know other consigners; it is a pleasure to participate in a sale where you know that everyone involved is striving to produce the right kind of cattle for our industry.

This year 86 bulls averaged $1,964.00. Thank you to R.E. Hall of Mudhole Farm for making our Lot #17 Gizmo Matrix 721 010 4132 the top selling Angus bull of the sale. We also want to send out a big thank you to Terrell Farms for their purchase of Lot 16 Gizmo Matrix 0711 065 4132, Jimmy Sealy for his purchase of Lot 18 Gizmo RT 724 416H 464 and Givhan Land and Cattle for their purchase of Lot 19 Gizmo RT 730 102 464. The most satisfying thing about this sale was the fact that three of the four buyers of our genetics were repeat buyers.

The next BCIA bull sale will be the 2010 EPD Bull Sale on February 26th at the Montgomery Stockyards in Montgomery, Alabama. Gizmo Angus will have six head consigned to this sale so if you are in the market for a new herd bull we hope you will consider Gizmo Angus.
