Johnson Corner Cattle Bull Sale

Saturday, March 3rd  NOON

17 Angus Bulls



















Well 60 years came and went. As many cards, calls and text messages I got, I think many think it might be my last. Hope not.

Another bad shooting in Florida. Who’s the blame? Silence is Golden here. Capital punishment in 3 days on Public T.V. would cure some stupidity. Watching somebody die that did what these shooters do, would be no worse than half the crap on T.V. that the kids and adults watch now. What a waste of lives. If we would ever have term limits, the Washington idiots might do what is right for us the American taxpayer and not them. What a joke in D.C. now. Kids could govern better than that for free.

Birthday Quote from an anonymous person that brought a tear to my ear: Thanks for all you do for the cattle industry and all the support Denison Livestock gives the 4-H clubs in many counties. Don’t worry about what’s going on. Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, and small minds discuss people. Whoever sent that to me – Thank You. You gave me the best present I could ever get. Thanks to all JR
