Minnesota cattle company sells bull, sets state record


This year was Heim Cattle Company’s seventh annual production sale, and it was one for the history books.

One of Nathan Heim’s bulls went for $280,000 dollars. That is the highest sale the state of Minnesota has ever seen.

“There are a lot of people that make this operation happen... we are able to put product together that works and sells like it did on Saturday,” Heim stated, according to KTTC.
