INNISFAIL, Alberta — Last week it was Prince Albert this week, the Daines Ranch. They may be two different places in two different provinces but there’s only been one champion at both of them. That’s Nansen Vold.
Vold even did so with two different two year-old bulls, 577 in Prince Albert and 545 in Innisfail. A pair of promising young stars earning the breeder nearly $8,000 in just over a week.
A bottle-fed bucker from Kendal McDonald took second place and was nearly led out of the arena afterwards. It’s amazing to see something like this if you haven’t yet. These bulls are bred to buck. The score for 578 Moose was 81.25 points to earn Hy-Kik $2,760.
The K Rose Ranch and Wild Hoggs/Chmelnyk/Bryant tied for second spot with 509 Uncle Tim and 528 respectively at 80.5 points for $1,490 each. Ken McGinnis with KS Livestock took the last spot with 80.25 points for $1,060.
