Friends, after tallying up all the numbers (and after a much-needed few weeks of R&R), we are pleased to provide you with a report from our Sale.
Wagyu enthusiasts from 11 states were on the seats and internet folks from throughout the world helped celebrate our 3rd Lone Mountain Ranch Sale. A beautiful spring New Mexico day greeted sale goers. Our own Lone Mountain Wagyu burgers were a hit for the pre-sale lunch. Many new breeders participated in this 2010 event. All in all, it felt like another showcase event for Fullblood Wagyu in North America. And we wholeheartedly thank Auctioneer Butch Booker, Sale Manager James Danekas & Associates, Inc., and all of the Lone Mountain staff, friends and family who made this event possible.
