With the world social distancing, this year’s edition of the Sliding Hills Charolais Sale was an online affair.
But that did not stop brisk bidding for the stock on offer from Canora-area producers; Carey and LeeAnn Weinbender and family.
‘M-R Victory 83G’ sold first in the auction and went for $5,000 to Bar 3 T Livestock from Sangudo, Alta.
When the final bids had been taken ‘SHSH Valour 16G’ would be the high-selling bull of the day. He sold for $8,000 to Dave Baron of Yorkton.
Overall 20 Charolais bulls averaged $4,025, while six Hereford bulls average $3,500.
A lone pen of five open heifers consigned by Bar Over H Farms (Clayton Hawreluik) sold for $1,600 each to Jerry Hudy of Melville.
