FORAGE DEVELOPED BULL SALE
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2017 – 12:30 PM

Oak Creek Farms Forage Developed Sale Bull Auction 2017

Oak Creek Farms, Chappell Hill, Texas - Annual Forage Developed Registered Brangus Bull Sale – Saturday, October 28, 2017 at 12:30pm at the ranch sale facility. Selling are 125 Oak Creek Farms’ Bulls – 65 Brangus, 50 Red Brangus, 5 Angus and 5 Red Angus. All Bulls are Oak Creek bred and developed on the ranch in Chappell Hill, Texas. Source verified commercial heifers from Oak Creek’s customers will sell after the bulls.

Dr. Tommy Perkins, Executive Director of the International Brangus Association will be one of the guest speakers at Oak Creek’s Seminar Friday evening, October 27th. Pre-Sale activities will begin at 2:00 pm with the viewing of bulls, followed at 6:00 pm by the seminar and a Ribeye Steak Dinner sponsored by Zoetis.

Kevin Milliner of Zoetis will speak on DNA testing capabilities used to identify heritable traits in cattle for feed efficiency, marbling and tenderness. Rarely all of these traits are found in one animal, per Milliner, because it takes a lot of energy and usually a lot of feed to increase marbling. Oak Creek going on fourteen years of DNA testing has been identifying bulls that are in the top 40% for all three of these traits.

Bulls are also selected for good phenotype and performance plus fertility. These bulls thrive on forages in the hot, humid environment of the gulf coast area. All sale bulls will also be fertility and trich tested plus have ultra sound data.
