Two bulls hit five figures. The white bull Tri-N Go North 2411H, sired by Nykoliation’s own bull SCX Jehu 233E sold for $80,000 to two buyers: Palmer Charolais, Bladworth, Sask. and BOB Charolais, Stettler, Alta.

The cattle sold throughout seven States and from BC to PEI in Canada, with this high seller staying on the Canadian side. “It’s nice to see the genetics stay in Canada,” said Merv.

A red Charolais bull also sold very well. Tri-N Brooks 34H, also sired by SCX Jehu 233E sold for $24,000 to Zehnder Waage Partnership, Greenbush, Minnesota.

Nykoliation says these Tr-N bulls represent a diversity of genetics that people apparently are looking for.
