Pick of the Herdsire Prospects Lot 4 We have decided to offer choice of our Silverado sired bulls from our Show string. This will be our last offering of natural service cattle from this outstanding herd bull. Silverado was loaded with thickness and power in a moderate and complete package. He was a high performance bull with above average milk. His daughters are very maternal, with added rib, fleshing ability and high milk production. The sons out of Silverado, such as BEA Johnny Walker and BABR Gentleman Jack, are massive, full of rib and muscle shape and sound.

Over the past 27 years our philosophy has been focused on producing Gelbvieh seedstock with maternal strength that perform well on forages. The highest standards have been applied in the selection of our donors to ensure that their offspring will be quality individuals. Structurally sound, easy keeping, low maintenance seedstock with a wide spread from birth to weaning are a must. We recognize the importance of cow families in a successful breeding program. Many of our donors are from cow families that have helped to mold this great breed. These donors have certainly produced individuals that have often been recognized in the show ring. In addition, success is also measured through a customer's ability to realize improvements in their profitability by using these genetics. This group is certainly our most profitable females and have proven to work well for other programs. Recently we have completed the DNA testing on our entire donor group. This gives us an additional tool in helping to better understand the genetic traits that are economically important for the beef industry. Space and time do not permit us to share all the details of each donor. Feel free to contact us for a complete detailed listing of donor females, their accomplishments, and availability for flushing. This opportunity guarantees a minimum of 6 frozen Grade 1 or 2 embryos with a maximum of 10 embryos. The flush will be performed at the buyer's expense and the seller's convenience. The sire for the flush will be selected by the buyer. ALS Miss Image's Mirror 622H - Homozygous black and homozygous polled.

Kali started her show career by sweeping the North American 2009 as Grand Champion Gelbvieh Female and she is entered in Denver. If you are looking for that next great female we believe Kali could be the one. Kali is really powerful in her make up with tremendous rib shape, depth, length of body and really clean made. The Louisville judge made the comment, "I have not seen a heifer with this much capacity that has so much width of base with perfect shoulders all on sound feet and legs walking on a big foot." Folks, Kali offers a choice of many bulls to pick from because of overall mass and scale. You need to evaluate her and tell me what you think about this brood cow prospect and yes she is a full sister to BTI Miss Kali 2005K and we all know what she did.

Thank You for attending the 2010 Higher Standards Sale! Notes Add Pounds. Add Profit. The highest price per pound doesn't always equate to profit. Even on today's carcass grids, weight still drives value. Profit comes from pounds of calf at weaning, the ability to gain efficiently in the feedlot and go to the rail with more pounds of high quality, high yield carcass. With higher input costs, isn't it time you did the math and put Gelbvieh into your crossbreeding program? Gelbvieh or Balancer bulls will give you more pounds and more profit. As a bonus, you get a set of replacement heifers that will be your hardest working cows.
