The fitting crew under the watchful eye of Joel Kietzman had the large lineup of cattle prepared superbly. The sale was managed by Tom Morris, Ltd and clerked by Sandy Morris and her efficient staff. Roger Turner read pedigrees and Gary Estes assisted Birthday Boy Tom Morris with the auctioneering duties.
Roger noted Tom’s birthday as “59 plus 1″…Tom, can that be right??
