Red Bluff Bull Sale begins with sifting, grading
The five days of activities that make up the Red Bluff Bull and Gelding Sale began this morning with an awesome kickoff breakfast, followed by the sifting and grading of range-ready bulls.
In the photos, from the top: Merle Eakin of Lazy J Red Angus in Primeville, Ore., brings a bull in to be fed; A couple of ranchers prepare their bulls for judging; Cottonwood veterinarian Bill Hooton looks at a bull from the Lazy J during the sifting stage; the Lazy J's Becky Sintek moves the bull around the arena as Hooton watches; and Hooton checks out a bull from the C.B. Ranch in Gerber.
Look for my article on the process at CapitalPress.com soon.
Channels 12 and 24 were there interviewing bull sale manager Adam Owens, so watch for their report tonight, too.
