Montana Auctioneer Sells Bulls In Russia

by

It’s not everyday that a past World Champion Livestock Auctioneer from our region becomes the first American to sell bulls by auction in Russia.

But that’s exactly what happened last week to Joe Goggins of Billings, Montana.

This week Russell Nemetz caught up with Joe at the Public Auction Yards and asked him about his trip.

In addition to his wife Linda, others making the trip with Joe were Bill Davis, with Rollin’ Rock Angus of Sidney, MT and Eldon and Louisa Krebs with Whitestone-Krebs Angus of Gordon, NE.

Joe says the bulls he sold were actually from Whitestone-Krebs genetics and it turned out to be quite an event.

He says Russia has huge potential when it comes to the beef cattle business.

Joe say unlike many in this country, the people of Russia know what it’s like to be hungry and that’s why their government is getting behind this program.

And he says in addition to actual infrastructure, the other hurdle the Russians will have to overcome if they’re to become a player in the global beef business is human labor. If it’s ever going to happen, he says the Russians will have to depend on Americans in this area too.
