Welcome to Canada’s longest running Annual Red and Black Simmental sale. The Checkers consignors have been a great group to work with over the years, allowing us to select our favourite cattle with lots of value and appeal, which allows us to maintain Checkers as one of the high class events in the Simmental industry. Once again thank you to all the consignors from past years for your commitment and dedication. We want to welcome the producers who are consigning to Checkers in 2016 for the first time. These folks have certainly put a great amount of effort in their first year consignment to bring the right kind to blend in with the quality and type of cattle that have continued to make Checkers a success. Rainalta Simmentals, one of the consignors that have been a part of Checkers since day one are having a Complete Dispersal on Dec 29, 2016. We, at Bouchard Livestock would like to thank Bill and Janice for their commitment to Checkers over the years. Rainalta would like to extend a thank you to all the Checkers buyers and consignors over the years for their camaraderie and invite you to view the 2016 Checkers sale cattle on Saturday morning prior to the sale and join them for coffee, Bailey’s and donuts complimentary of Rainalta Simmentals and Charolais.

highest price we have ever sold calves for. The 2016 Checkers offering is very impressive. The bred heifers are the front pasture kind and mated to impressive and marketable AI sires or one breeding and short exposures to breed leading sires. The open heifers are loaded with potential and if you are looking to add to the front end of your program, the opportunities are limitless. The embryo offering will come loaded with predictability and potential from proven and productive sires and donors. 2016 is one of the very elite consignments that Checkers has ever had the pleasure to offer. All of us at Bouchard Livestock are very familiar with the genetics on offer and would be happy to discuss this great set of sale cattle with you. Call any of the consignors prior to the sale and it will be their pleasure to walk you through their individual consignments. As always we would welcome the opportunity to act on your behalf if you are unable to be in attendance. I hope to visit with you in Ponoka on December 17. In closing, the Bouchard Livestock crew would like to wish you and yours an enjoyable Christmas season and may 2017 meet and exceed all of your expectations.

- Brian Bouchard 2016 has definitely been a year of uncertainty in a lot of areas such as commercial calf prices and weather. In the last 3 or 4 weeks we have seen the return of some sunshine with a lot of grain harvested and put in the bins. A tremendous amount of livestock feed has also found its way to the yard. In that same 3 or 4 week period we have seen calf prices strengthen with an increased demand and stability in the market place. We need to be honest Brian Bouchard Chad Lorenz 403.896.9585 with ourselves, it is not what 2015 returns were but still the third 403.813.7999

EPD Information EPD’s are "Expected Progeny Difference." They are a useful tool in selection. EPDs incorporate the individual animal with its averaged ancestry performance. EPDs do not compare across cattle breeds. They are individually based per breed. EPDs indicate a probable variance above or below breed average for that trait for a given bull's progeny. Use them for guidance in the direction you want your herd to go. EPDs are current as of publication date.

Last fall at weaning, we had two Vision heifer calves that we were very excited about. We sold one at Checkers last year to Southpaw Cattle Co as the high selling heifer calf. The other, LRX Button 25C – who is a full sister by pedigree, was chosen by Sadie as her 4-H project. Button was our club champion heifer and Champion Simmental at our regional show. Button is a well balanced heifer that is hard to fault. She is bred to our new calving ease sire that was purchased from Skor Simmentals. We are very excited to see his first calf crop.

Inverter 34C is a female that possesses a nice feminine look but yet is still very bold sprung in her rib shape and muscle definition. When you set this one in motion she hits her track as true and honest as they come. As you get to the ground 34C is fluent on her legs as she sets her foot down softly with precision. This is a female that we think very highly of and is shaping up to be a great asset to add to anyone's herd. Bred AI to SS/PRS Tailgater 621Z.

Wilma 605D is a member of one of our largest and most reliable cow families, they are easy fleshing females with strong udders that wean heavy calves. 605D herself possesses a soft deep rib cage and carries that depth through her flank and into her hind quarter. Wilma 605D is a thick, easy doing female with enough femininity and eye appeal that she could be competitive on the show ring or just turn her out to pasture and let her go to work.


Maxwell Simmentals

Welcome to the 22nd Annual Checkers Sale from the Maxwell families. With the younger generation getting involved with the day to day decisions they hinted it would be nice to take some cattle to one of the Alberta weekend sales. Being previous consigners to the Checkers Sale, we are very excited to be a part of it again. We have brought some of our top replacement females to advertise our breeding program. These are the sisters to the bulls that will sell at the Herd Masters Bull Sale March 1, 2017. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported our program in the past and are very excited about the livestock business in the future. If you have any questions about our offering give us a call.

Force heifer with tons of capacity, lots of hair, great disposition, very correct on her feet and legs. The dam of 153C is a full sister to Royal Red, that everyone who visited the farm seemed to want. Some how we managed to keep her. 153C was in our group of three bred heifers we showed this summer. Bred AI to MAF Rattler 23C on 14 Apr 2016.

Lake Bottom Cattle Co

Welcome to Checkers 2016! It's been a busy year at Lake Bottom, but the animals still got their fair share of attention. This year we're offering three open heifers that will be awesome additions for any cowherd. These girls are some of our best offerings as we felt it's ok to let some of the great ones go - there are always more at home and always more to come in the upcoming calf crop. Look them over and love them as much as we do; we know they'll do great for their next home as they would have definitely done for us.

There are two words to describe this heifer "Damn Good", and we are very excited to see what this heifer will go out do for her new owners. She has a huge spring of rib, wide top, and a sweet front to top it off. She will either be a showman's dream or she will go on to be a great donor cow! This heifers sire, Buckshot, was going to sell in Checkers 2 years ago, but suffered a shoulder injury, so we used him on some cows at home, and we are SO happy with how the whole crop off him look! Stout, wide, hairy and flat out GOOD! The cow we purchased from the good people at Greyledge Simmentals, and she has done an outstanding job on this heifer for being her first calf.

This is the first heifer that we are going to be offering out of the Jokers Wild bull that we purchased from Erixons, and true to the Dealer sons she is powerful! She has a ton of stretch, rib, and a great neck extension. She can move like a cat and is sure to add the extra size to her offspring. We purchased her mother from Berwest Simmentals, and we are so glad we did with a heifer like this beside her.

This is probably the best moving heifer that we are selling to date, sound and stylish in one package! This is the first heifer calf that we are offering out of the Wheatland bull we purchased, and we feel that she will represent the rest of her siblings just fine. Her mother is out of the Erixon program, and has outdone herself with this heifer calf.

Firecracker has that "look at me" attitude. From our entire calf crop this year, this young lady reminds me the most of our high selling heifer calf that sold to Hi-Tech Simmentals of Ontario at Checkers last year. She is loaded with hair and style. I just love her presence and conformation. The Turbo daughters are exceptional cows that prove you can produce power in moderate size. Plan on Firecracker to be like her mother and siblings – just like fine wine, get better and better with age.

Welcome to Checkers 2016 from Hampton Simmentals. I would like to thank Bouchard Livestock for hosting such an elite event, and am proud to be bringing 2 of my top replacements. I run a small herd of red and black purebreds and a small herd of commercial cows, in the Falun area. My numbers are kept to a small but quality driven number as I work off the farm. If you have any questions or would like to view the heifers or my herd, feel free to call anytime or just stop in for a visit. I look forward to visiting with everyone in Ponoka at Checkers where we can all get together before the calving and bull sale season. Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

"LG" is a female I am extremely proud of. I raised and sold her sire, Sherman, after he was crowned Res Senior Champion Bull calf at the National Show in 2013, to the great operation Sevick Simmentals run by Russell Sevick. This leading female is not only angular, capacious, and has a great hip, but has that "I'm better than the rest" kind of attitude. Her dam is a moderate framed, beautifully uddered cow that produced my only bred sold to date at Checkers in 2014 to LakeView Simmentals of Big Valley, AB.

Extending a warm welcome to everyone from Progressive Simmentals! Thanks to Brian for visiting with us this summer and selecting these two bred heifers off the top end! It’s been a few years since we’ve been here...but when we do come we try to enhance the sale and we think these two bred females are special! They are currently being housed in AB and receiving the best of care at our friends location – Yellow Rose Cattle. Things are busy here in the Valley...work, and more importantly, our little families are keeping us on the go! Jan and his wife Ina just had their third child in August. Ken and his wife Henrietta are expecting their third and fourth (twins) in late January! Hence, Ike is kept busy running after his 19 grandchildren! Looking forward to seeing everyone in Ponoka in December!

4C is a moderate, easy fleshing, soft made daughter of Lights Out! We've dabbled a bit with the Lights Out bull and we've been really impressed! They are the right kind! We've always appreciated the productivity of our Twin Chief females and 4C's dam is no exception. We have a couple of daughters from their Hershey cow family and they know how to work. Combining the Hershey cow family with the maternal 211S cow in Lights Out has proven to be a great recipe. 4C's full sister is our standout heifer calf this year that will stay on the farm enabling us to offer 4C at Checkers. Her mating to Sheriff should complement this female. Bred AI to Kuntz Sheriff on April 5. No exposure.

This December born, liver red, Bootlegger daughter is sure to impress! She has that brood cow look! You need to get in behind this female to discover how much capacity she has! Her coming 11 year old dam is a past Simmsational sale feature that we purchased from Labatte Simmentals and Hay Valley Ranches. She was the poster girl for BLI when they were marketing Red Teddy semen. She is an extremely fertile cow with 20B being a part of her 5th set of twins in a row. She has been providing us with a lot of bulls. This is the first time she has given us a set of female twins. We are offering 20B and are excited to retain her twin sister to further develop this cow family. Bred AI to Kuntz Sheriff on April 3. No exposure. LOT 31 PAG E 2 3

This heifer is wide topped, deep bodied, clean fronted, has style to burn and is polled! Her sire was the lead off fullblood bull in my sixth annual bull sale and the service sire KHG 15C has everything you'd want to breed her to a low birthweight, dark cherry red and perfect wrap around goggles. Front pasture cow in the making that could move to your donor pen! Bred AI to KHG Kurt 15C. Due January 28.

Bred AI to LFE BISS RS Lewis 314Y. Due February 7. Peach 124C comes from a very special cow family. Her dam has been pure gold here. Twice she raised my lead off and high selling bull and a grandson was lead off and high seller in another of my sales. 40N will be 14 next spring, has raised a feature calf every year and is due to calve early in 2017. Peach's sire is none other than Red Chief 136Y, the #1 red herdsire here. He is a Wet Dream 6W son and if you've been following what Wet Dream has done, you'd know he sired KHG Talia 45Y, purchased by Lewis Farms as a yearling heifer. She has already raised a feature bull in their 2015 sale, LFE Explorer 388C who sold this past spring for $150,000. Bred to 314Y, the dark red, homo polled heifer bull. Peach is obviously a heifer you need to mark high, as her calf will be worth it's weight in gold. PAG E 2 5

Super stoutness, eye appeal, hair all combined in this heifer makes this a real neat opportunity to obtain this female. We think so much of her she was our show heifer for Stockade and Farmfair. She was second in class at the National show at Farmfair.

One of the most powerful heifer calves we have this year, this neat blaze faced daughter of I'm a Gangster has caught the attention of everyone who toured our pastures this summer. We can't say enough about how happy we are with our Gangster calves. Our show bull pen is also headlined with three top Gangster bull calves. 10D's dam has been one of the best producing cows we've had with many top females in the herd and a top end bull that sold in 2012 to David Mohr.

Vienna is a heifer that we are proud to offer to the industry. She is a powerful cherry red baldy heifer that we feel is going to be a superstar for her new owner. When you step up and analyze this heifer you really have to appreciate her natural muscle shape, massive rib shape and how soft made she is. She is very attractive to look at and strides very fluently on sound feet and legs. The most exciting part about this heifer is that she stems back to what is probably the best female producing cow family we have at Willow Creek. Her dam, like the rest of the cow family is moderate made, huge bodied and has an excellent udder that milks extremely hard. A maternal sister to Vienna raised the $11000 feature Identity heifer we sold last fall through this very sale to LeeWood Ranch. Another maternal sister is arguably the best female in our bred heifer pen this year. For her to be a daughter of MRL Red Whiskey only adds to the excitement. We have a very consistent and powerful group of calves sired by MRL Red Whiskey. They are long bodied, have excellent muscle and really thick hair coats. This heifer is right from the top of the heifer pen and one we feel is as good as we have raised. Check her out, she might be the powerful red heifer that you are looking for. checkers

We decided to offer one of our very best bred heifers. Orgazmo 57C is a direct daughter of CCR Cowboy Cut, a bull we haven't had many progeny from but have been really happy with them so far. Everyone we've talked to about Cowboy Cut praises how good footed they are and that really holds true for this heifer. She's got an unbelievable amount of rib shape, moderate framed and looks to be setting down a really nice udder. She's bred to High Voltage for what we believe will be an exciting calf. High Voltage is a bull that's worked really well as a calving ease sire in our herd. They're clean fronted, stout made and very sound. Watch for this female to produce some show worthy progeny. Bred AI to SS/PRS High Voltage on March 28 and April 15. Exposed to KWA Ultimate 285B from April 20 to May 20.

Ms Tilly 14D is a female full of potential from her pedigree to her phenotype. She is the most powerful female we have raised with a weaning weight of 875 lbs and EPDs that put her in the top 3% for weaning and 1% for yearling. While Tilly is an extremely long, square, deep and power female she also is very well balanced. Her dam Tilly 10U is a daughter of the great Ribeye 71N female at Robb Farms and was purchased as the high selling female at Agribition in 2008. 10U impresses all that see her, as she is youthful, powerful female with an ideal udder. Tilly 14D has the potential to follow in her dam and grand dams footsteps and will anchor a donor program. Homo Polled.

We are proud to offer our very first female we have brought to town, in such a special sale like Checkers. We committed to coming with our very best, to show the industry what we have, and the type we strive to raise. Without a doubt this girl is all that and more! Long and deep bodied with loads of capacity and hair. Setting up a real nice udder this bred is going to be the full package. Sired by our Full Throttle grandson from Skors and a foundation cow of ours, Syna is sure to raise the good ones. She has been on our radar since a calf, going on to be the Grand Champion Overall Female at the Peace Country Beef Congress in 2016. She continued turning heads as she was the pick of our breds by everyone who came through the pasture. The 63s cow has raised good honest bulls for us in the past, including a herdsire into the purebred herd of KSL Simmentals. She is a heifer we are going to miss big time around the farm, but have great excitement to see what legacy she leaves wherever she ends up! Bred AI to NCB Cobra 47Y on March 25, 2016.

The Ramona 375R female will go down in history as a definite herd bull producer. Ramona has probably produced as many or more herd bulls as any of the great matrons in production within the Simmental breed today. The obvious name that comes to mind is of course Full Throttle. He has produced in both the male and female category, siring progeny that breeders want to own. As we always say it takes a great cow to produce a great herd bull. The Crosby mating will be very predictable once you see the big ribbed, powerhouse, Crosby/Ramona daughter that Maxwell’s have consigned to this 2016 Checkers offering. Ramona will be the perfect addition to the Riddler embryos, adding muscle and power while maintaining that soft made muscle pattern. Both of these mating’s should possess unbelievable hair coats. Consigned by Genetics to make a Difference. Selling two lots of 5 embryos and guaranteeing 2 ninety-day pregnancies from each lot.

Mariah 112M has definitely produced some of the great ones up and down the road. The sire of Mariah, HC Powerdrive has LOT 50C probably sired as many of the great black females in the Simmental breed as any sire to date. We have seen Powerdrive appear in the pedigree of front pasture females as well as the bottom side of many herd bull pedigrees, which seems to be where he makes his greatest contribution. There are clearly some great Broker/ Mariah progeny excelling out in the country. If you want to produce those attractive, fancy, progeny the combination of Vision and Powerdrive will certainly produce that. The Riddler sired embryos should be exactly what we are expecting from this exciting new sire. They should have adequate performance with above average style and eye appeal. Consigned by Genetics to make a Difference. Selling choice of 5 embryos from three sires, guaranteeing 2 ninety-day pregnancies per mating.

You are invited to the Rainalta Simmental and Charolais Complete Dispersal, December 29, 2016 at Bow Slope Auction in Brooks.

Terms & Conditions The terms of the sale are cash or cheque payable at par at sale location unless satisfactory credit arrangements have been made prior to the sale. The right of property shall not pass until after settlement is made. Bouchard Livestock Ltd reserves the right to require a certified cheque as settlement before releasing any sale cattle. Should the purchaser fail to settle for his purchase, Bouchard Livestock Ltd reserves full power to resell the animal to the best advantage, either publicly or privately, without further notice. Any loss arising from such resale, together with keep and all other expenses shall be payable by the defaulter. All settlements must be made with the clerks of the sale before any cattle will be released. The owners, Bouchard Livestock Ltd. and sale staff have the right to refuse bids from anyone who has a previous record of default in payment and/or who has not made prior credit arrangements prior to the sale with the owners and/or Sale Management.

BID Every animal consigned to the sale must be sold by auction. No by-bidding will be permitted. Each animal will be sold to the highest bidder.

DISPUTES In cases of disputes, bidding will be reopened between the parties involved. If no further bid is made, the buyer will be the person from whom the auctioneer accepted the last bid. The auctioneer’s decision in such matters will be final.

PURCHASER’S RISK Each animal becomes the risk of the purchaser as soon as sold. ANNOUNCEMENTS from the auction block will take precedence over printed matter in the catalogue. Buyers are therefore cautioned to pay attention to any such announcements. CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRY The proper Registration of Recordation paper, as the case may be, will be duly transferred and furnished to the buyer for each animal after settlement has been made. SHIPPING Assistance will be given in making shipment after the sale, but Sale Management or Seller assumes no risk. Expenses incurred are the responsibility of the purchaser. Purchasers are requested to furnish shipping instruction when making settlement.

GUARANTEE All animals will carry standard breeding guarantee as specified by the applicable Canadian breed Association. At no time shall the seller’s liability exceed the purchased price of the animal.

EXCEPTION TO GUARANTEE In cases where the animal is subjected to any hormonal or surgical reproduction techniques after the sale, the guarantee shall be null and void. In the cases of bulls, they are guaranteed to breed naturally according to applicable Canadian breed Association guarantee, but no guarantee is given that semen from any bull will freeze. HEALTH It is the buyer’s responsibility to determine health requirements for importing any animal into his province or state. Bouchard Livestock Ltd assumes no responsibility for the health status of any animal in the sale.

ACCIDENTS Although every precaution will be taken to protect the safety and comfort of buyers, neither the Sale Management, auctioneer, or Association assumes any responsibility in this matter and disclaims any liability legal or otherwise in the event of accident or loss of property. RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS The above terms and conditions of the sale shall constitute a contract between the buyer and the seller and be equally binding to both. Resale of animals following purchase in this sale shall constitute a separate transaction and the rights and the terms and conditions of this sale do not cover obligations of the two parties connected thereto. BOUCHARD LIVESTOCK LTD IS AGENT ONLY It is clearly understood that Bouchard Livestock Ltd acts only as agent between buyer and seller and is not in any way responsible for any failure by either party to live up to his or her obligations. Bouchard Livestock Ltd does not assume any financial obligations to collect or enforce collection of monies by either parties, and in exceptional case, any legal action will be between buyer and seller. Bouchard Livestock Ltd has no ownership of the facility and assumes no responsibility for the operation of said facility.
