Greetings Cattlemen, Cattlewomen, Farmers and FarmHers,
Sale week is here, and we have a lot to cover before opening day! We want to start by giving a big THANK YOU to our customers. Because of your trust in RCC, we were able to have record sale year despite the pandemic. As Steve R. would say, “WOAH!” Many of you allowed RCC to find bulls that fit your needs sight unseen. We are grateful for your confidence in us and look forward to working with you again.
2020 was unpredictable and found many of us adapting to change and learning as we go. RCC would also like to thank our team for their dedication this past year and helping us roll with whatever came our way. Matt, our Operations Manager, along with my two nephews, Dan and Joe, were there early in the morning in sub-below temps and stayed until the job was done. We are fortunate to have such knowledgeable staff who has stuck by our side for many years.
We also want to give a heartfelt thank you to all of our nurses, doctors, and frontline workers who put the lives of others in front of their own. Your selflessness has not gone unnoticed, and we are appreciative of your perseverance this past year!
As for the 2021 sale – The bulls have come through a very cold winter. As most of you know, they are on high forage diets with only windbreaks and valleys… no inside barns here.
We are planning on having our usual opening day gathering with our brisket lunch. As always, your comfort and satisfaction are our top priority. Everything will be held outside, so attend if you wish, and wear a mask if you wish (masks will also be provided upon request).
Julie and Jenna have provided short clips of some of the bulls. You can find these on the Sale Info tab. Sorry they’re not the cleanest (we just got done with our snow melting and spring thaw when we took them). If there is a bull you are particularly interested in, let us know, and we’ll try to provide you with a picture or video prior to the sale.
Looking forward to seeing you, hearing from you, and the virtual meetings in between!
