Dusek dispersal sale

The Lazy S-T dispersal sale went off without a hitch (at least to the casual observer) today at the fairgrounds in San Angelo, Texas. The opening bid wasn't far off the scheduled start time of 10 a.m. and the bidding held steady until the hammer fell on the last goat -- Lot #265 -- at 4:35 p.m. For a sale this complex, it went quicker and smoother than anyone would have expected. Another hour or so was spent selling off all the ranch's goat equipment.

high-selling buck Sir Spotsalot for $9,500 and Cappuccino for $4,400. They are Lazy S-T/Bon Joli
partnership flushmates.
Marshall Griffith of Dixieland Ranch in Lebanon, Tenn.,
purchased the top-selling red buck, Outback Jack, for
$8,750. He was represented at the sale by Brent Hunter (right).

Brassy Lassy was the top-selling doe, going to Ed Borges
of Moorpark, Calif., for $5,800.

Bon Joli's share of the day's proceeds will go to Phil DeLobbe's
college fund. From left, Henri DeLobbe, Troy Powell, Ralph McGee,

top-selling dappled 
buck, Copperhead, for $8,250.
