Passion For Prime was hosted this weekend at The Sullivan, in the United Capital Building. The event auctioned and showcased Kansas-raised Waygu cattle from Kansas ranches including Howard Waygu, based right here in Saline Co. The auction was international and those who were unable to attend were able to bid live through an online auction platform. In total, this was 189 lots sell.
The event also had a presentation by Booth Creek Wagyu, from Manhattan Kansas, discussing the latest information and trends in the cattle industry. Ranching has taken a much more local approach during the last few years after the 2020 supply chain issues related to Covid-19 lockdowns. There is a higher demand for cattle to be raised and processed locally.
