Progressive Commercial Producers Signal a Bullish Market During the 5th “Early Bird” Bull Sale
Some of the most progressive commercial cow-calf producers in America, in attendance at four sales annually at Gardiner Angus Ranch, typically reflect current and longer term market signals relative to the cow-calf sector. Market analyst have consistently forecast a bullish 2022 and, in the absence of other Black Swan events, tell us leverage is shifting back to the cow-calf producer.
More than 228 bidders confirmed those same industry signals during the 5th Annual “Early Bird” Bull Sale. Between buyers on the seats and two online bidding platforms, bidders competed for 280 GAR bulls that, on average, ranked in the top 5% of the Angus breed for marbling, top 4% for $Beef, top 5% for $Combined, top 18% for growth and 26% for calving ease. The average of the offering ranked in the top 10% of Method Genetics (MG) Retained Ownership Index.
Further illustration of the positive market signals, commercial producer, Doey Messer, Messer Cattle Co., Soldier, Kan., took a bold step by investing in Lot 1, GAR Incentive, with a winning bid of $46,000. Incentive offers a unique outcross for most GAR pedigrees without compromising the elite traits demanded by progressive commercial producers today.
