A black Simmental bull from Saskatchewan has sold for a record $190,000 on March 6.
Raised by Sunny Valley Simmentals of Hanley, SVS Captain Morgan 11Z sold to the Dimler family of Double Bar D Farms of Grenfell, Sask.
Only 14 months old, this young sire was named supreme champion bull at the Saskatoon Fall Fair and was also a top 10 finalist at the Canadian Western Agribition supreme challenge, the only bull calf to ever make it to that level.
The bull is homozygous polled and is sired by Harvie JDF Wallbanger 111X, whose calves are topping production sales all over the Prairies this spring. This bull was bred by Harvie Ranching at Olds, Alta.
The first Wallbanger calves have just come available for sale this year and are topping all the spring sales, said Cole Harvie.
“Roughly he has probably sold in this breeding season over half a million dollars worth of progeny in his first year,” he said.
