It :s not unusual for a number of states to be represented in sales, but three bulls to three coun- tries has its significance. The countries are Canada, South Af- rica and the- United States. C. C.

Buxton of the Horse Shoe Ranch sold 50 head of females Saturday night for an average of S486.50 as the ranch made its first appearance in the Hereford Heaven sales circuit: however, it was the seventh annual sale for the Horse Shoe Ranch. Cattle offered by the Horse Shne Ranch are of the same high qualitv as oilier cattle in Here- ford Heaven, lut thry were not conditioned in the same manner as other cattle sold in three pre- vious sales. The difference is that the Horse Shoe cattle are fitted for sale in the open pasture and lots while other cattle in the area are fitted for annual sales in barns under near perfect conditions. Buxton was pleaded with the results of his first Hereford Hea- ven sale and has already started making plans for a bigger and better sale next year when he makes his second appearance in the circuit. The Horse Shoe Ranch had no bulls in the Saturday night sale and thus had a nice average for a sale of 50 heifers. The Lazy D Ranch purchased the top two animals offered.

The association sale is not strictly a consignment sale. It is a elrnft sale-, in which arc offer- ed animals selected by an ssjoct- ation committee from both large pinches and the smaller pure- bred herds that are not large enough yet for their own inde- pendent salts. The committee seeks out the best obtainable outside of res- tricted breeding stock, inasmuch as what goes in the ring at the association sale is representative of a wide spread of Hereford Heaven breeding.
