To Our Fellow Cattle Enthusiasts; It has been a very hard decision but with everyone’s best interest at heart we have decided that this years, 18th Annual Cedardale Charolais Bull Sale will be an online once again due to the Covid‐19 circumstances. We want to keep all our fellow producers and cattlemen’s wellbeing at the forefront of our mind and top priority. We will be offering this year’s bulls online only thru DVAuctions, in a little different format – Horserace Style Closeout sale. Bidding will open on Friday, April 16th and the sale will end at 7 pm, Saturday, April 17th, with extended bidding to follow and will continue until there is NO bidding for 5 minutes! With this option, all lots will close simultaneously, therefore there will be no formal sale order. Extended bidding means that the auction is not declared closed until there have been 5 minutes of inactivity after the 7 pm close out. REMEMBER TO CLICK ON THE REFRESH BUTTON TO
