The 2021 Elite Genetics Sale hosted by RSK Farms near Brandon was one for the record books.
Owner Andrew Kopeechuk says he confirmed with the CHA (Canadian Hereford Association) and one of the bulls (RSK SCK 7165 Double Down 30H) will be the All Time High Selling Polled Hereford Yearling in Canada at $39,000 for full possession and half interest.
"It was a bull that we had raised out of a female we had bought with a partner of ours that had some cattle here," said Kopeechuk. "Definitely one of the highlights that we've had ever selling bulls. Those types of calves don't come along every day and it takes quite a few years to breed them right. It was pretty cool to see and he ended up going down to a ranch in Idaho and their partners in Utah."
RSK donated a dollar back for every pound of hamburger sold to the Douglas Community Recreation Association for a total of about $500 this year.
