Nearly $1.3 million was shelled out for 260 bull entries Jan. 28 at the Red Bluff Bull and Gelding Sale in California.
The total fell just below last year's $1.34 million for 290 animals, but the average sale of $4,959.81 tops the average of nearly $4,629 per bull paid in 2022.
The top-priced bull was a Hereford sold for $25,000 to Michael Pratt of Monroe, Ore.
About 80 lots were sold, with weaned steers topping out at $262.50 per hundredweight and weaned heifers reaching $238 per hundredweight. Both high bids bested last year's $221 and $196, respectively.
About 67 horses sold for a combined $1.12 million, and 17 stock dogs went for a combined $110,550.
The sale capped off nearly a week of livestock auctions and events at the Tehama District Fairgrounds in Red Bluff, Calif., including the 15th annual online feeder and replacement heifer sale on Jan. 26.
