Bull Sale Days 4 and 5: Stop by our booth

Among the scores of businesses with booths at the Red Bluff Bull and Gelding Sale's trade show is the Capital Press, where our audience-development specialist and all-around star promoter Hannah Brause is greeting existing customers and making new ones.

I owe a great deal to the Capital Press booth at the bull sale. I happened upon the booth while holding down the (now-defunct) Red Bluff bureau for the Record Searchlight and learned how the paper operates and how its reporters are disbursed throughout the West. I ended up applying later that year, in 2008, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So stop by our booth for a chance to win cool merchandise, including some antique-looking model trucks with the Capital Press logo that I was coveting. And if you don't have a subscription to the paper yet, isn't it high time you signed up? Even if you're not in agriculture, you do eat, right?

Today is Day 4 of the bull sale, when the program kicks it up a notch. Among the highlights are the final workout of ranching dogs outside at noon, the sale of the dogs this afternoon and tonight's sale or horses and mules. It all culminates in tomorrow's sale of all bulls and tomorrow night's bull-riding contest, all at the Tehama District Fair grounds. Here is the full schedule.

Again, watch for our ongoing coverage here and at
