BULL SALE NOTES All Highview Angus Ranch Sale Bulls have passed a full semen test & were again, vaccinated with PregGuard 10 FP MLV, 8-Way Clostridial, Immvac Beef & given MultiMin this past year. Complete A.I. breeding, ET, Genomic Testing, developing and culling all take a big investment. Yet our bulls remain competitively priced & represent an excellent value! We think you will be surprised just how affordable they are. Just ask for a current price list! For comparison Registered Angus Bulls (as reported to the AAA YTD in fiscal 2019 through March) 11,381 head averaged $5,438. 3,500 head in the Pacific Northwest Averaged $4,180 while Angus Bulls sales here in Oregon averaged $4,251. The average for even the top end of our bulls selling this season are priced significantly less than the average for Angus bulls sold across the US and around our Region even though our bulls are all A.I. sired with deep A.I. pedigrees.

Buy the best bulls you can, but remember in times like these, every dollar counts! Additionally, all have been genomically tested to verify pedigrees and enhance accuracy of their data by Angus GS the most comprehensive and only breed specific DNA test available in the world today. Contact Jeff today for the best selection on these age advantaged bulls!

THE RANCH

Highview Angus Ranch is located in the beautiful cattle country of Northeastern Oregon and under the Wallowa Mountains. We are a third-generation family cattle operation dedicated to providing genetic solutions to our customers’ needs through Angus Bulls and Females deep in nationally known and proven A.I. sires. Our primary business is selling Registered Angus Bulls by private treaty to commercial cattlemen. Many who make their entire living from the cattle industry and with an emphasis on retained ownership thru the feedlot. More recently we have begun offering Select Registered Angus Females. Occasionally, we also sell A.I. sired and A.I. bred commercial heifers.

We celebrated 50 years back in 2010 and are well on our way to the next 50 years. Facing the challenges of the last half century, cattle have been our only business. We routinely background our own calves to retain thru the finishing phase and/or sell as value added feeders. No strangers to the feeding industry, we have been selling fat cattle on grids for decades. Our Operation is primarily grass and grazing based utilizing New Zealand Style MIG (Management Intensive Grazing) rotating cattle frequently on our high mountain meadows with the extensive use of electric fencing. We attempt to extend the grazing season often grazing cattle thru deep snow. For more Information visit www.HighviewAngusRanch.com The Secrets to a Supreme Cow Herd is based on our complete focus on nationally compared and proven A.I. sires. Nearly every maternal pedigree trace thru 100% A.I. sires back into the early 1960’s. Elite cow families are further replicated thru our decades old ET program. With great investment our entire Cow Herd and all Sale Bulls have been genomically tested which greatly improves the accuracy of EPD's. Better data provides better results not only for us but for our customers. Our integrity in doing business is well known. Our customers not only expect it, they deserve it. We care about our customers, their ranching programs, and their families. Raising cattle takes hard work and we take joy in the accomplishments of our customers. In all that we do, if it doesn’t benefit you, then it doesn’t benefit us.

BREEDING PHILOSOPHY The focus at Highview Angus Ranch is on real world, functional cattle that can not only perform in the ranch environments of our customers, but also have the added growth, efficiency, and superior carcass traits to be in demand by the feedlot and packing industries. Nearly every Registered female that formed our base Angus cow herd are traced to proven cow families from either Gardiner Angus Ranch in Kansas, or Sitz Angus in Montana, two of the most well-known, multi-generational family Angus programs in the US. With cattle as our only business we not only shared a steep tradition of focus on the commercial cattle industry but an understanding that our cattle must earn our living and pay their own way. Every registered female and sale bulls are many generations deep in known A.I. sires with most tracing thru all A.I sires back to the early 1960’s. These proven A.I. genetics and cow families are then combined with our total commitment to complete AHIR progeny weight data with comparison using full & proper contemporary groups. All current sires and dams along with all our Sale Bulls and Registered females have been genomically tested. This not only verifies parentage but ensures more accuracy, validity, and ultimately more predictable results for our customers & those who might purchase their cattle. All combined this has resulted in sale bulls with as competitive and predictable package of Angus genetics as any available in the industry today. Our 50 plus years of experienced data analysis, along with the extensive use of EPD's

have allowed huge increases in performance. However, our ability to apply visual cow sense and then to more importantly practice common sense have been the key factors in producing consistency and quality. Thousands of cattle have been born, raised, bred, compared, and culled right here at Highview Ranch. You can rest assured that the man who makes the mating decisions, calves the daughters, backgrounds the calves, or sells fed cattle on a value added carcass grid, then pays all the bills solely from this herd, is the same man who represents the cattle here. We are cattlemen first and true owner-operators who understand that the complexities of our breeding decisions have implications not only for us but for our customers, their customers, and ultimately for a quality eating experience that drives demand.

COMPLETE A.I. PROGRAM

Going forward commercial programs using the sons and genetics of nationally known and compared A.I. sires will be rewarded as the value discovery is being proven and discovered at a very rapid pace. At Highview Angus Ranch every registered female and sale bull is many generations deep in known A.I. sires. Our A.I. sires have been progeny proven to be the best in the breed not just from an “in house” herd sire. Every maternal pedigree can be traced to these proven sires thru decades of A.I. use with most tracing thru all A.I sires back to the early 1960’s. This ensures more accuracy, validity, and ultimately more predictable results for our customers and those who might purchase their cattle. At Highview Angus Ranch, these proven A.I. genetics are then combined with our total commitment to complete AHIR progeny weight data, a more than decade old carcass ultrasound program, and comparison using full & proper contemporary groups. As a result our bulls offer as competitive and predictable package of Angus genetics as any available in the industry today.

ABOUT JEFF PARKER Jeff Parker has been very involved from a young age being raised on the family ranch. He received an AS in Production Ag from Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Oregon, and a BS in Animal Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, California. Jeff also enjoyed his career in the Animal Health and A.I. Industries working as a Food Animal Specialist, District Sales Manager and Beef Cattle Specialist where he collectively worked in nine Western States with Cattlemen, Feedlots, and Veterinarians. He also managed two large ranches with thousands of head scoping from cow-calf, stockers, back grounding, finishing, and carcass data to purebred pro-

grams resulting in very successful production sales with an extensive A.I. & ET focus. From feedlots to intensive cell grazing in highly productive paddocks with electric fence, grazing in the high desert to rough timbered ground with hundreds of miles of fence on both public and private leases, Jeff continued to broaden his experience while making future plans of his own. Today, Jeff has been running his own operation for more than two decades. If Jeff's collective industry knowledge and contacts can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. He would be glad to help in any way that he can.
