(Fallon, NV) February 20, 2016 – Even with the threat of cold temperatures and harsh winter weather across much of the west, it did not keep cattlemen from attending the 50th Annual Fallon All Breeds Bull Sale held at the Fallon Livestock Exchange. This year’s sale featured bulls ranging from 14-25 months of age. Cattlemen from California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Utah attended the sale looking to buy their range-ready bulls for the year. The sales of 113 high quality bulls came to a total of $496,000.00, with a Sale Average of $4,389.38. Breed Averages included: Angus for $4,396.34; Red Angus for $2,950.00; Charolais for $4,541.67; and Herefords for $4,723.68.
Each year, the consignors continue to bring high quality bulls. Because of the high quality of bulls and dedicated support to the sale, the sale continues to be a success and reach out to many of the western states. The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and Fallon Bull Sale Committee thank you for your participation and congratulate this year’s award recipients.

This year’s recipient of the volume buyer jacket is Steve Lucas of Lucas Livestock. A special thank you to our volume buyer and all of our buyers. Whether you bought one bull or eleven, your continued support of the Bull Sale is greatly appreciated.
Along with the dedicated group of buyers and consignors that participate in the sale each year, there are several sponsors who help make the sale possible year after year and they include: Pinenut Livestock, (awards for Best of Breed, Top Overall Range Bull, and Best Pen of Heifer and ear tags for the sale); Fallon Convention Center (grant for advertising); Hoof Beat Gates and Corrals for donating the panels for the FFA raffle; and Great Basin Ranch of Southern Nevada Water Authority (for donating the “Raffle Calf”, proceeds go to benefit Churchill FFA and the NCA Scholarship Fund). Also, each year Gayle Hybarger organizes the Invitational Stock Dog Trials and Auction, proceeds go to benefit a family’s fight against cancer. Along with these dedicated sponsors we would also like to thank our newer sponsors, Stix Cattle Company, Robison Ranch and Demar Dahl for contributing a donation calf. Without the support of these great sponsors, the Fallon Bull Sale would not be possible.
Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and the Fallon Bull Sale Committee would like to send a thank you to everyone for support and assistance in making the Sale a success each year! Lastly, thank you to the crew at the Fallon Livestock Exchange, the Churchill County FFA, the Churchill County Cowbelles and the Fallon Bull Sale Committee members. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.
