22 lots of elite Brahman heifers and bulls – 20 heifers averaged $14,038 and 2 bulls averaged $10,000. These Brahman calves sold to buyers in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Mexico.
At Moreno Ranches, we are so excited about the future and what it has in store for our great genetic partners and the beef industry. One of the sale highlights was Lot 15, a Rufus daughter, that sold for $42,500 and will become a leading donor for one of our great partners in Mexico.
Mr. Fontenot 333, who the industry knows as “Rufus,” has revolutionized the red Brahman breed. Not only was he a many time show winner, including being named the 2016 International Champion, but offers a lot of value to Brahman breeders. He is an extremely sound structured sire that has an ideal look and adds growth, bone and muscle to his offspring. Rufus has produced numerous show ring winners for us over the past year, including the Champion Bull at the Florida Junior Brahman Show, and high sellers, including the high selling lot in our All American Sale. In addition to his ideal build, he offers an outcross pedigree to many of today’s bloodlines and ranks in the top of the breed for growth and milk, only further adding to his value as an impact sire. As a result of his superiority and demand by breeders domestically and internationally, “Rufus” was the #1 Red Bull for Registrations in the ABBA over the past year. As you can tell from our show string and sale offerings, we believe in “Rufus” and know that he will continue to play a significant role in our program for years to come.
