No Step sells $30,000 buck

Sunday's first sale of the day was a reflection of the current wild and crazy wether market in Texas. The parking lot was filled with trailers and the auditorium was packed as bidders easily spent tens of thousands for prospective wether sires.

The tempo dropped to a more moderate level in the afternoon as Farmer's Stock Exchange and Silvergate Boer Goats offered a slate of beautiful big does from such genetics as Blue Chip, Mojo, Sumo and Rambo. These big does averaged less that $1,000. 
Steve and Diana Boscamp (center) of Skidmore, Texas,

got the top-selling buck at the No Step/Hutto/Schafer
sale Sunday at the Labor Day extravaganza at the San
Angelo Fairgrounds. They paid $30,000 for the No Step-bred
Freak son, the first ever offered for sale. Early estimates were
that the buck would bring as much as $20,000, but heated
bidding pushed up the price of the young buck, Lot #5 in the sale.
Three other bucks brought $20,000 each. 
Eleven bucks in the sale brought $10,000 or more.

Does from Lynn & Jim Farmer.

Lazy S-T began offloading their colored Boer goats in preparation for their

complete dispersal sale on Monday. The sale begins at 10 a.m.
