 Good morning! ****

WOW!  A great day was held at Irwinville earlier this week at the Tifton
Bull Evaluation Center 54th Annual Sale!  A new sale average record was set
as one hundred three (103) bulls totaled $312,400 for an average of
$3,033.  They sold to 73 buyers from three states:  Alabama, Florida, and
Georgia.  Hereford bull, Lot 197, topped this year’s test and also topped
the sale at $11,500.  The prices remained steady throughout the afternoon
with the last bull that walked through the sale ring, also a Hereford,
selling for $2,200.  The last 10 ten bulls to sell averaged $2,230.****
