The 77th annual Red Bluff Bull and Gelding Sale kicked off Tuesday at the Tehama County Fairgrounds.

The annual event draws in hundreds of participants from all over the western United States.

With almost 450 bulls and 85 geldings up for sale this year, organizers said it’s one of their biggest years yet.

The event is one of the biggest of its kind in the county and serves as an avenue for breeders to connect with commercial cattle ranchers where they can showcase and sell their livestock.

“We raise registered bulls, and they're the seed stock that go out to the commercial cattlemen to breed their cattle and to produce the beef that ends up in the supermarket,” Washington cattle breeder Bill Cox said. “It's a good place to come to meet cattlemen and to present our bulls and see what they're worth.”

Every year, the event draws in people from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and beyond.

“We draw vendors and consigners from all over the western United States,” organizer Adam Owens said. “You know it's a lot harder to bring a bull the further away you are, but our attendees come from all over the country.”

People like Cori Anderson from Canyon City, Oregon who has shown here for her eights year in a row.

“We raise purebred bulls and we have extra hereford bulls for sale, Anderson said. “And we come here to get our program out there and sell to these commercial breeders down here in California.”

Tuesday, she and other sellers were busy getting their show ready, making sure they looked their best for thesifting and grading process.

“We're clipping them, getting them groomed, kind of making them look level and square and the best that we can make them look,” Anderson said.

But if you’re not into cattle, the stock dogs are a popular event to watch and the trade show promises to have something for everyone.

“We have the trade show and whatnot with over 100 different vendors in the trade show from all over the western United States with mostly Western-type wears for home and ranch, everything from big equipment to clothing to home decor,” Owens said.

The trade show and the art show begin Wednesday at noon.

And the stock dogs will be showing off their herding skills in several shows also starting Wednesday.

The event goes on until Saturday and will wrap up with the sale of the bulls.
