Welcome to the

It is hard to imagine that we are hosting our twentieth annual sale. The old saying “time flies when you’re having fun” applies to our experience. Another old saying that comes to mind this year is “all good things must come to an end.” Twenty years of production sales is certainly a milestone, but we made a decision in 2015 to commence a three year plan for a complete dispersal of our cattle herd, and this will be our final sale.

Bata Brothers Joe, Chris, Mark

Since the dispersal process began, a lot of people have asked me if I miss the cows. My answer is that I will miss all of our great customers even more. It is impossible to put into words how much we appreciate the support of our customer base over all these years. As we prepare for this sale, the most notable issue is that the cattle market seems to have stabilized and has actually shown a good improvement since the October 2016 lows. I always said that the market downturn that began in 2015 was overdone because we did not suddenly add millions of head of cattle to the national inventory. Hopefully the rebound continues. There seems to be great optimism in the stock market, and common sense would lead one to believe that this optimism will eventually support all segments of the economy. The Simmental breed has been a good place to be and will continue to be in the future. It can be argued that in the last couple of decades, the Simmental breed has made more positive progress on the genetics of our cattle than any other breed. We would also like to welcome Travis and Corri Bell as guest consignors to our sale. They purchased a large group of bred heifers from us early in 2016, so our genetics can be found in the bulls they have consigned to the sale. Finally, we can’t say enough about what a great and rewarding experience it has been over the years to have the opportunity to work with the Bata families in bringing you quality offerings of Simmental seed stock. We have never needed to have a contract and it could not have been smoother or more enjoyable to work with them. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to the Bata’s for their friendship. And thank you for attending our sale.

Olafson Brothers Curtis and Roger

FEMALE PRODUCTION SALE

Dear Friends,

Welcome to our 20th sale. A milestone we are proud to have achieved. As we look back at the old sale books, we note the many changes in cattle. They are thicker and heavier than the first ones. We have always tried to produce performance cattle for the commercial cattle producer. The years of breeding with that goal has produced some of the top performance cows in the breed. With one of the wettest years on record, it has been a challenging summer and fall. Combining was tough. It started in August and ended November 10th. The “pull-out” tractor was always the first to the field. The calves didn’t get weaned until November 15th because of the wet cattle lots. It made for some “big boys” on weaning day. They continued gaining through the cold, snowy December and January. We want to thank Brent Kuss and family for another great set of ET calves. The 25 we brought home are some of the best! With eight grandchildren, Grandma Patty and Pa-pa Joe are kept busy. Feeding the cows is everyone’s favorite pastime, but only so many can fit in a tractor. Little Joseph was sad going home after Christmas. He was worried the cows were hungry because he didn’t help Pa-pa Joe feed them that morning! It is with regrets that the 20th sale will be our last sale with Olafson Brothers. It has been great working with them. We wish them well in their new freedom, no chores!! We congratulate them on receiving the Pioneer Award from the ND Simmental Association! They have been “pioneers” at breeding performance Simmental cattle! We will always remember the hard work and extra efforts they have put into making better cattle for customers. We welcome Travis Bell and family to our sale partnership. They hope to carry on with the Olafson pedigrees as a foundation to their new herd. We thank everyone for their interest. See you at the sale!

EPDs:

Homo Polled, Dark cherry red. Purchased from McMillen Ranch, SK. He was 1/88 for weaning and goes back to their best cow families. Ringman continues to put it all together as a moderate calver with big time growth. The bulls are extra thick and very well put together and the females are definite standouts in the heifer pen as well. Several outstanding breds sell in the sale. His sons topped last year’s sale. Semen available from Bata Bros.

Wall Street

Homo Polled, Homo Black. Grand Slam was the high seller from Spring Creek Simmentals in SK. for $47,500. We are really impressed with his calves, as they are put together so well with extra hind quarter and muscle expression. He was used heavily this summer and look forward to getting more calves this spring. His consistency, performance, and ability to improve cattle will surely be seen in the future of our herd. Owned with Triple H Simmentals, Hannaford, ND.

He is moderate framed with incredibly perfect feet and legs. What a job he has done in his first two calf crops! His calves come very easy and are vigorous at birth. When fall came his calves really pushed down on the scale. They are clean fronted while being thick made with an extra big, deep middle. If I could give him an API it would be off the charts! Semen available from Bata Bros.

Homo Polled, Non-Dilutor. Purchased as the high seller of the 2013 Rydeen Farms sale. He had a weaning ratio of 116 and yearling 117. With an actual weight at 10 months of 1295 and 42 cm scrotal.

His progeny have excellent performance. He is co-owned with Batas. He is Homozygous Polled and Heterozygous Black.

We purchased True Grit for a calving ease sire for use on heifers, and he has certainly done a tremendous job in that regard. He is in the top 1% of the breed in calving ease, birth weight, API & TI. A True Grit son from Batas was the top selling bull in our 2015, selling for $35,000 to Hart Simmentals, Frederick, SD. He is co-owned with Batas. True Grit is Homozygous Black and Homozygous Polled.

Her brother topped our yearling weight in the 2015 sale and sold for $13000 to Kelly Hoffart, Rugby, ND. Our Top Cut cows always give some birth weight because of their super long body. D14 was born unassisted with an actual 104# birth weight, with his dam weighing 1405#. His dam was an ET and had our top yearling weight @ 1220# on 2-25-15 and adjusted to 1304#.

Homo Polled. Triple Black. ET This long made bull has more birth weight from his extreme length. He weighed 974# on 11-15-16. A lot of growth for an ET bull, however his pedigree enforces the numbers. His EPDS for wean, yearling, ADG, CW, and REA are all in the top 1% for the breed. If you follow numbers, you will find very few, if any bulls this spring with 5 traits @ 1%. It happens because we breed performance into our cattle year after year. His dam was our top weaning heifer in 2014, 813# to ratio 123 and rank 1/44 and yearling weight @ 1353# to ratio 121 and rank 2/36. After flushing she bred back, went on to calve on 3-15-16.

14 TRAVIS BELL YEARLING BULLS

BELL FAMILY The Bell Family operation is a five generation family run farm we call Edgewood Ranch. Travis and Corri manage the farm for the past 15 years with the help of Travis’s parents Arden and Marcy Bell. In 2008 Travis and Corri established a feedlot operation contributing to our goal to produce beef for the ever changing beef industry by specializing in back-grounding and finishing out feeder calves in our feedlot while managing and selecting genetics for our commercial Angus Herd. Edgewood Ranch is located in east central ND four miles west of Fordville ND. The Bell’s purchased foundation females from the Olafson Brothers of Edinburg ND in February of 2016 and are enrolled in THE (Total Herd Enrollment) program with the American Simmental Association. We aim to satisfy producers and consumers by careful selection of genetics and motivate a better product from pasture to plate by bringing back your quality calves to finish in the feedlot. We are excited for our future with the Simmental Breed of cattle. Look for us in your future, we plan to be there!

Bata Heifer Health Comments Our herd has been tested for ten years in the North Dakota Voluntary Johne’s Herd Status Program and have reached a status of Level 3. All animals tested have tested negative. Heifers were calf-hood bangs vaccinated and given rumen magnets, and pre-breeding vaccinated with Bovi Shield Gold FP VL5, Anthrax, Foot Rot, and Vision 7 w/somnus. They were ultrasound pregnancy tested in August, with rechecks done September, 29 by Dr. Nathan Kjelland, DVM. They are guaranteed bred to the sire listed in the footnotes unless otherwise noted from the auction block. Heifers received Ivermectin in early December for deworming and parasite control and will receive two Guardian vaccine scour shots prior to the sale.

All Bata bulls and heifers will have a video prior to the sale on DVAuction.com under video catalogs.

– ASA Suggested Sale Terms and Conditions – BIDDING AND APPLICABLE LAW: All cattle listed in this offering comply with prevailing sale terms and conditions as set forth by the laws of the state wherein the sale is conducted. There are no warranties, expressed or implied, by either the auctioneer or consignor, except as set forth herein, as to the merchantability of fitness for any particular purpose of any animal offered in this sale. The right to bid or the right to reject the final bid, if done before the hammer falls, is reserved for all sellers unless otherwise announced from the sale block or as prohibited by law in the state wherein the sale is being conducted.

EMBRYO TRANSFER: 1. Sellers should provide upon request a complete history of embryo transfer activity for any female offered for sale. 2. Withholding information on the existence of frozen embryos at the time of sale would be considered an unethical practice. HORNED-SCURRED-POLLED DEFINITIONS:

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Any change of information other than in the catalog will be announced from the auction block and such announcements shall take precedence over printed material. All statements made from the auction block or those made by the seller (in private treaty), must be documented by seller if requested by the buyer at time of sale.

2. POLLED/SCURRED — An animal with rudimentary horn growth that will not develop into a horn. The rudimentary horn growth may or may not become affixed to the skull at an older age.

TERMS: Terms of sale are cash unless satisfactory credit arrangements have been made with the seller previous to the sale of any animal so affected.

3. POLLED — An animal with absence of horn growth. (An animal can have scurs and still be genetically polled.)

PURCHASER’S RISK: Each animal becomes the property of and therefore is also the risk of the purchaser as soon as it is sold; except it shall be the obligation of the seller to see that animals are fed and cared for free of charge to purchaser, until loaded for shipment or until the expiration of twenty-four (24) hours after the sale, whichever occurs first.

4. SMOOTH POLLED — A smooth-polled individual has no scurs and does not develop scurs later in life.

HEALTH REQUIREMENTS: 1. All cattle entered for sale must meet the health regulations of the state in which they are sold. All other agreements regarding the health of the animal will be between the buyer and seller and should be documented in writing. 2. If sale cattle are returned to the seller for an adjustment, they must meet the health requirements of the state they are returned to. CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRY: Each animal, which is catalogued, offered and sold as a registered animal, shall have a certificate of registry available at time of sale. When an animal is sold as “eligible for registry” or “registry applied for”, the seller shall be responsible for obtaining the certificate of registry and for the proper transfer of the certificate to the purchaser including full payment of transfer fees. IDENTIFICATION: Each animal, at time of sale, must have a readable tattoo or brand corresponding to that shown on the certificate of registration. AUTHENTICITY OF PEDIGREE: When an animal, through parental validation, is determined to have an ancestry other than that reported on the registration certificate, the buyer shall be entitled to a refund of the purchase price from the seller upon return of the animal to the farm of the seller at the seller’s expense. The animal in question, at the buyer’s option, may be exchanged for another animal of equal value, or if agreeable with the buyer, the seller may have the certificate returned to the buyer. Any adjustment provided herein, if selected, shall absolve the seller from further liability for authenticity of pedigree to the buyer. BREEDING GUARANTEES AND DEFINITIONS: 1. Females are guaranteed to be breeders, with the exception of: a) Female calves sold at side of dam b) Injury or disease occurring to the animal after time of sale c) Gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the purchaser d) Females used in ovum transplant after time of sale e) Cows sold with calf at side or a female that calves after sale to breeding prior to the date of sale 2. Bulls are guaranteed to be breeders (definition as the ability to settle healthy cows by the time the bull is 18 months of age) with the exception of: a) Bull calves sold at side of dam b) Injury or disease occurring to the animal after time of sale c) Gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the purchaser d) Bulls shown competitively after sale 3. Any guarantees with respect to the ability to freeze semen shall be made by separate agreement between buyer and seller. 4. Safe in calf females are females that have been diagnosed pregnant by a competent veterinarian, and are pregnant at time of sale. 5. A bred female is a female known to have been served by a bull either by natural breeding or artificial insemination, but it does not necessarily mean that the female is safe in calf to that service. 6. A pasture-bred female is a female that has been pastured with a designated bull and has been exposed for the time stated, but it does not necessarily mean that this female is safe in calf to that bull. 7. An open female is a non-pregnant animal. 8. Calves sold off their dams (split pairs) shall carry the full breeding guarantee. PRIVILEGE OF PURCHASER TO EXAMINE: The purchaser of a female animal may have her examined within twenty-four (24) hours after the fall of the hammer and prior to removal from sale premises. The pregnancy status of breeding status of a female so examined, when found not to be as represented at the time of sale, is cause for the female to be returned to the seller as unsold.

1. HORNED — An animal with a horn growth affixed to the skull that has or has not been removed.

GUARANTEES: 1. If an animal is sold as polled or polled/scurred and proves to be horned, the seller shall be obligated to refund the purchase price upon return of the animal to the farm of the seller at the expense of the seller or may be exchanged for a polled animal of equal value whichever is acceptable to the buyer. The buyer has thirty (30) days from date of sale to notify the seller that an adjustment is in order. 2. If an animal is sold as smooth-polled and proves to be scurred, the seller shall be obligated to refund the price upon return of the animal to the farm of the seller at the expense of the seller or at the buyer’s option shall be exchanged for a smooth-polled animal of equal value. 3. If an animal is sold as polled and develops scurs, the seller will not be obligated to make any adjustment as a scurred animal is considered polled. 4. If an animal is sold as polled and has scurs, it shall be so announced at the time of sale that the animal has scurs. If it is not announced and the buyer finds before the animal leaves the sale premises that the animal has scurs, the buyer must notify the seller of the findings. The seller shall then be obligated to refund the purchase price. OPTIONS AND PRIVILEGES OF RETURN OR ADJUSTMENT: The following adjustments do not preclude the right of the buyer and seller to mutually agree upon other terms and conditions for settlement of any dispute. 1. All claims for adjustment or refund must be made in writing either six (6) months from the date of sale or no later than when the animal reaches 24 months of age whichever occurs later, with the exception of claims involving misrepresentation of service sire or as otherwise provided herein. 2. In the event an animal is claimed to be a non-breeder, the animal may be returned to the farm of the seller, at the buyer’s expense, if in good physical condition, and the return is in compliance with the health requirements of the seller’s state. The seller shall be entitled to a six (6) month trial period following the return of the animal in which to prove the animal is a breeder. If at the end of six (6) months the seller is unable to prove the animal is a breeder, the seller shall, at the option of buyer, replace the animal with another equal value or refund the purchase price. Either option shall be deemed full satisfaction and settlement. 3. If a female is sold as “safe in calf” to a given sire or sires on a specified date or dates and proves not to be as represented, the buyer is entitled to a refund of the purchase price from the seller upon return of the animal and resulting progeny thereof to the farm of the seller at the seller’s expense. 4. If a female is sold as “open” and proves to be with calf at time of sale and examined pregnant within sixty (60) days after sale, the buyer may return the animal to the farm of the seller prior to calving for a refund of the full purchase price or for another animal of equal value, whichever acceptable to the buyer. It shall be the obligation of the seller to bear any expenses incurred for transportation of the animal in question to the farm of the seller. GENETIC TESTING AND TraitTrac STATUS: Sellers must identify the TraitTrac status and the results of any qualitative genetic testing performed on any animals or genetic material offered for sale. The ASA considers it an unethical practice to misrepresent or fail to disclose the TraitTrac status or qualitative genetic test results of any animal or genetic material. DISCLOSURE OF MATERIAL INFORMATION: Sellers must disclose all material information concerning any animal or genetic material offered for sale. For the purposes of these Sale Terms and Conditions, “Material Information” is defined as any information which would be likely to affect the value of the animal or genetic material if the information were known to the public. Material Information includes, but is not limited to, information related to genetic tests, blood tests, ultrasound pregnancy results, disease tests, pregnancy and fertility test results, information related to the sex and age of in utero calves or embryos, and information related to the fertilization status of in utero calves, including whether the calf was conceived via artificial insemination or natural service. The ASA considers it an unethical practice to misrepresent or fail to disclose any Material Information concerning an animal or genetic material offered for sale. LIMITATIONS OF OBLIGATIONS: These sale terms and conditions constitute a binding legal obligation between the buyer and seller of any animal or genetic material sold under these terms and conditions. However, the ASA, its directors, officers, employees and agents do not assume any obligation, legal or otherwise, to enforce the sale terms and conditions agreed to between buyer and seller.
