More than 200 bulls and heifers were up for auction Monday at Harrell Hereford Ranch’s annual spring production sale at the ranch along Salmon Creek about eight miles west of Baker City.

Ranchers from across the West, and as far away as Virginia and Alberta, Canada, strolled from one stock pen to another to evaluate yearling and two-year-old Hereford bulls in preparation for the 12:30 p.m. bull sale.

Those cattlemen weren’t looking for just any bull.

“The customer base here is purebred customers,” said Ringman Scott Holt. “(They’re) coming to buy genetics to add to their herd — to make their own purebred herd better than it currently is.”
