National Angus Bull Sale Excels in New Location


The 82nd Annual National Angus Bull Sale overcame the challenging year of 2020 to bring an excited crowd to Oklahoma City. The renewed event commanded the attention of hundreds of visitors and buyers from across the nation, both in-person and online. Held in conjunction with the inaugural Cattlemen’s Congress, the change of scenery proved valuable for both the buyers and the sellers at the event.

As the final bid rang through the sale arena, a total of 34 registered bulls grossed $551,750, with an average of $16,227, which is an increase from years prior. The high-selling lot, Conley Verified 0853 consigned by Conley Cattle, sold for $77,500. The second high-selling lot, Wilks Guru 2035 consigned by Wilk Ranches of Eastland, Texas, was purchased for $75,000. The Angus Foundation Heifer Package donated by Benoit Angus lead off the sale and brought in a $35,000 donation to further the Foundation’s mission of youth, education and research.

“We can’t thank the folks here at the Cattlemen’s Congress enough for what they’ve done, giving us an avenue and a location for us to have our sale,” Sale Manager and Angus Regional Manager Alex Tolbert said. “The breeders stepped up in a year of change, and they brought us quality cattle and bulls with broad market appeal.”

Sale managers and consigners put together a top-notch set of bulls from across the country, representing a wide variety of operations. The bulls consigned offered a high caliber of both phenotype and genetic profiles. Bulls were required to be genomically-tested and sold with genetic predictions. Hosting the sale in a central part of the country attracted several new consigners and influx of bidders and supporters at the inaugural Cattlemen’s Congress.

“We saw a great turn out this year and we hope to continue to build on the excitement for next year,” Tolbert said. “The Angus breed has positioned itself to be a leader in the industry, and the bulls brought forth reinforced that last week in Oklahoma City.”

The National Angus Bull Sale typically sets the tone for an optimistic year of Angus sales, and this year was no different. To view the full sale report and learn more about the National Angus Bull Sale, visit Angus.org.
