SDSU Annual Bull Sale

We are back to a face-to-face sale this year!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to hold a face-to-face sale in 2020. Pending university approval, our goal is to be back to a somewhat normal sale in 2021. We will need to follow university protocols for social distancing and wearing of facemasks indoors; however, we are optimistic that we will be able to have our customers back on site for the sale. Unfortunately, because of limited capacity, we will only be able to allow bidding customers and their guests into the building for the auction and lunch prior to the sale.

A special thanks goes out to Kevin Vander Wal and his crew at the Cow-Calf Education and Research Facility. We are extremely appreciative of the tireless hours that these individuals have dedicated to our purebred cow herd. This sale, in addition to many other student activities, would not be possible without Kevin’s commitment to our program.

Please feel free to stop by the Cow-Calf Unit and view the bulls at any time. If you have questions pertaining to the bulls, please feel free to contact a member of the Seedstock Merchandising Class, Kevin Vander Wal (605-693-2253), or Dr. Cody Wright (605-688-5448).

Kind regards,
2021 Seedstock Merchandising Class Members: Brandon Berg, Brooke DeRouchey, Allison Grygiel, Scott Halverson, William Knudson, Dylan Kohn, Madison Kovarna, Amanda Lambert, Madelyn Leqve, Daniel Moriarty, Tommy Norman, Jacob Rausch, Tyler Reese, Mariah Sage, Alex Thyen, and Riggen Zelinsky.

How the Limited Auction Sale Works
The bulls will be available for viewing at 10 am on Friday, April 2nd. Buyers interested in a specific bull or multiple bulls must turn in their bidder cards by 1:00 pm. At that point, the sale order will be set based upon the number of interested buyers for each bull. Only buyers with a bull listed on their bidder card will be able to participate in the auction for that bull. Buyers interested in purchasing a bull remotely, can contact Kevin Vander Wal at 605-693-2253. Any bulls not sold in the sale will be available to prospective buyers on a first come, first served basis. All of our normal discounts and guarantees are still in place. SDSU retains the right to in-herd semen use at our expense and the buyer’s convenience.

The catalog for this year's sale is available at this link.
