Their new home
We offer our bulls for sale every second Tuesday of February (mark your calendars for Feb. 12, 2019) at our annual Quality, Not Quantity production sale at the ranch. After buyers leave on sale day and the dust has settled, our bulls stay here. We continue to feed them and care for them until they travel to their new home. But, now as spring has sprung and more importantly, the bulls have passed their semen test, the boys are being loaded onto our trailer and are experiencing the open road.
Doug has already delivered a few loads of bulls. He has one more loop of local bulls to deliver before he begins more adventurous routes. This year, we had animals departing for Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin, Texas, Minnesota, Canada, and all corners of North and South Dakota. In total, he'll put hundreds and hundreds of miles on our trusty red Ford in order to safely transport our bulls, or rather everyone else's new bulls.
So, if you see the Bichler Simmentals pickup and trailer roaring past you, wave and yell hello. Just don't be offended when Doug doesn't wave back. After all, he has to keep his hand on the wheel.
