Isa's 54th bull sale averages more than $5000

Isa Beefmasters, LLC, held their 54th Beefmaster bull sale on October 3, 2015, in San Angelo, Texas. An excellent sale, the event had 37 buyers from seven states and Mexico taking home 129 Beefmaster bulls at an average of $5086. Isa's President, Lorenzo Lasater, stated the sale was extremely strong, with an unprecedented demand for good Beefmaster genetics. Auctioneer Joe Goggins of Billings, Montana, sold the 129 bulls in the blistering time of 1:35.

The high-selling bull, L Bar 3500, sold to a syndicate of Dwight Bertrand, Gene Haymon and George Fuller for $12,500. This awesome young herd sire prospect is the son of L Bar En Fuego and was the overall top performer in the offering.

Volume buyers included: Lykes Brothers (FL)—17, A. Duda and Sons (FL)—15, Alamo Ranch (NM)—11, Wedgeworth Family (TX)—11, Goff Ranch (AZ)—10 and Rafter T Ranch (FL)—10. Other volume buyers included Jones Ranch (TX) and Diamond and a Half Ranch (NM).

The Lasaters were also please to welcome foreign guest from Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and Cuba.

Current Isa president, Lorenzo Lasater, represents the third generation of the family dedicated to breeding performance Beefmaster genetics. The breed was founded by Lorenzo's grandfather, Tom Lasater, in 1937.

According to Lorenzo, "This set of bulls represents nearly 80 years of consistent, balanced selection for economically viable cattle. These bulls will produce excellent feeder calves and replacement heifers in any environment, but especially the tougher ones. With more pounds at weaning, lower input costs and the best mother-cow on the planet, Beefmasters can't be beat."

The Lasater family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to everyone in attendance, especially the many repeat customers, including several second-generation buyers. We are already working hard to bring you our 55th set of Beefmaster bulls on October 1, 2016.
