Bull Sells For Record $1.51 Million


ST ANTHONY, N.D. – A North Dakota ranch has set a world record for the highest-selling beef bull. 

Schaff Angus Valley sold the bull for $1.51 million. 

Herbster Angus Farms in Nebraska bought SAV America 8018. Charles Herbster chairs President Trump’s Agriculture and Rural Advisory Committee. 

“We knew we had something special, but at a public auction, you never know how much a bull will sell for. We ended up having two bidders who really wanted the bull, and the stars aligned,” a Schaff Angus Valley spokesperson said. 

Kelly Schaff and his family own the ranch near St Anthony, ND. 

“SAV America 8018 is a great bull because of his phenotype, pedigree and his mother’s productiveness and longevity. He is the result of an embryo transplant from an 18-year-old-cow. This is her very last offspring,” a Schaff Angus Valley spokesperson said.
