Full of Bull: Family Cattle Operation Holds Annual Sale

Full of Bull: Family Cattle Operation Holds Annual Sale

He attended the sale

He attended the sale looking for Hereford bulls. “It’s a good market and they’re bringing a lot of money,” he said. “I bought five bulls and it was plenty of investment.” Cattle markets have been good for several months now. Seven hundred pound feeder cattle are selling for around a dollar and a quarter a pound. That’s very good prices say most cattle buyers. The bulls sold during the Shaw auction averaged between $3,500 and $4,000 each. Sam & Lee Blackwell of Glens Ferry, Idaho came to the sale planning to spend around $4,000 for a polled Hereford bull. They run about 50 head of mother cows and they like the temperament of their herd when bred to polled Herefords. “We got the absolute bull we wanted,” said Lee. “A good heavy body and a nice deep chest. He will become our herd bull. He’s headed to Bennett Mountain with our mother cows. “We paid more than we budgeted, but he was worth it,” he added. Beginning in 1946 with one registered heifer, the Shaw family has provided quality breeding stock for cattlemen across the country. Tom and Mary Shaw started the operation that is now managed by son Greg and his family. Buyers at the sale come back every year and leave satisfied that they are purchasing quality cattle. As rancher Tom Nonella says, “If I need good bulls again next year I’ll be back. These Shaw bulls produce good solid calves.” A Hereford bull goes up for auction at the Shaw Production Sale in Notus.

Sam Blackwell of Glenns Ferry evaluates Hereford bulls during the Shaw Production Sale. A Hereford bull recently offered for sale by the Shaw Cattle Company of Notus. The family ranch is a fourth-generation seedstock producer.
