MONTANA BRED, BRED TO WORK


MONTANA BRED, BRED TO WORK Welcome to the 2017 Montana’s Choice Sale. Once again the committed breeders of Montana and the Northwest have put together an offering of genetics that can move any program forward. Throughout the catalog you will find females that offer value and long-term profitability with a focus on the commercially minded breeders of this nation. These herds specialize in making maternal genetics that work in any environment they are asked and last like Simmental based females are supposed to. They truly are cattle that work for you and not the other way around. Outcross pedigrees, breed leading genetic values and cattle developed with the purchaser in mind can be found in large numbers at this annual event. Past females purchased here have gone on to produce high value bulls and females for purchasers from many different states and regions of the country. Also, as in the past you will find a great blend of black and often hard to find red genetics in volume. The Montana’s Choice sale will again offer two divisions of females with the traditional state sale entries as lots 1-60 with both bred and open heifers in the mix. Following those females up is nearly 140 heifers in the “commercial” division. The unique feature is that nearly all of these heifers are registered Simmental and SimAngus too with great pedigrees and promise for the future. It is one of the few sales in the country where you can put together valuable young females in volume at traditionally affordable prices. These heifer will come in the ring as groups of 3-6, but buyers can buy 1, 2 or all of them, whatever they prefer. It is a buyer friendly way to pick the heifers you want from groups of good ones. Whether you are starting a herd, growing your female base or maybe even purchasing a group of front end heifers to breed and re-sell as registered breds the value is here year after year. Please accept this invitation to be with us in Billings the first weekend in December for the fellowship and for the sale. Friday evening Dec. 1 is the annual Montana Simmental fun banquet and everyone is welcome to attend this good evening of socializing and catching up. The sale is scheduled for 12:30 PM on Saturday the 2nd at Billings Livestock, but the cattle will be in place on Friday for anyone that wants to come and look around prior to the sale. We hope you will consider making it a weekend in Billings and enjoying the hospitality of the great breeders that call Montana home. Sincerely,

Marty Ropp

AI bred 4/4/17 to WS Outcross C164 (2974779). Pasture bred 4/20-6/1/17 to GW Commotion 277D (3088660). X48D is the smaller framed of the 3 reds. Marty eyed her dam as a calf and obviously this tradition passes on. She comes from an easy fleshing cow family and it is always hard to beat the Xpectation daughters. The vet called all of the reds to the AI date however, if they were caught on their first cycle with GW Commotion 277D (a no holes, outcross pedigree bull) it shouldn’t be a bad thing.

Sells open. Miss Mor 129E is a full sister to Harvey’s popular 2016 entry and is as correct as you can make one. Bred to add growth and muscle, she doesn’t disappoint with her wide base and thick ended type. She was still a bit green at photo time, but still showed wonderful natural depth and rib shape. Her feet and structure will really work and speak to her value and longevity down the road.

Sells open. Dark red, clean patterned, attractive, level on the profile and stylish, 120E has loads of potential. She is really sound with plenty of heel and comes with a proven maternal pedigree. The X263 daughters are high producers and the Remington Red Label on the bottom side adds a little extra balance and eye appeal too.
