Demand for the “Modern American Brahman” has reached an all time high – so far – with the recent BRC “Best of the Spring Borns” sale commanding a $51,560 average valuation per head.
The sale was held October 18, 2022 through DV Auction and featured five half-interest lots. Bidders registered from all around the world.
The high selling bull lot was BRC Money Don’t Jiggle 240, a Noble son out of BRC’s 103/8 female from the 98 cow family. Half-interest in Money Don’t Jiggle sold for $39,600 to GB Ranch of Texas for a $79,200 valuation, making him the highest selling Brahman bull of a public auction in 2022.
BRC Havana Daydreamer, a daughter of BRC 160/8 and 775/7 was the top selling lot, with a valuation of $64,200. She, along with her full sister BRC Rock Me Mama 250 will be joining the donor battery of Finley Bros. of Florida.
BRC You Should’ve Known 235/1, another exceptional Noble daughter, was purchased by 5W Farms of Oklahoma. BRC Finders Keepers 240 was purchased by Israel Ramirez of California with ranching entities in Mexico.
This offering solidified BRC 160/8 as one of the dominating sires of modern times, with an average sale valuation of $44,000 per head.
