Season 2, Episode 16 Out Now!

In our previous episode we spoke with Cheryl LaFranchi about her ranch Oak Ridge Angus and its history… among other things. In this episode we meet up with her at the Red Bluff Bull & Gelding sale where she’s selling 4 of her Angus Bulls.

A bull sale isn’t much unlike a dog show… at least to these eyes. The animals are just a lot bigger. An important part of a bull’s genetic makeup is that he is docile. Walking down the row of stalls where the bulls are being prepped to be auctioned is more akin to a beauty salon than a barnyard. This is where I first discovered that they have blow dryers and hairspray for cows.
