Welcome to the Maryvale “Power in the Pedigree” Bull and Female Sale Welcome to our 2014 catalogue and on-property sale. We are really pleased to offer you this exciting line-up of Limousin bulls, females, and genetic packages. The genetic merit of the bulls and females that we are offering on Tuesday 25th February is outstanding and a direct function of the “Power in the Pedigree” that backs up each of these animals.

Some of the highlights of our 2014 offering include the following: •

Lot 1 Maryvale Hammertime – an outstanding black & polled ET son of TMF Westwood

Lot 3 – Maryvale Halfback - an excellent Scur/Polled French Pure bull

Lot 6 & Lot 11 – Maryvale Hunter and Maryvale Hitch – two great bulls with the soft body type we strive for!

The first draft of bulls by our $13,000 sire Froghollow Enigma – they are big numbered and very structurally sound. Check out Maryvale Hugo (Lot 5) and Maryvale Hedge Fund (Lot 16). Homo Polled tests are pending on both of these sensational bulls

Lot 26 – Maryvale Caitlyn & her exciting bull calf at foot Maryvale Justice J476

The introduction of our phenotypic score card for assessing the breeding potential of our semen sires

Large scrotal size across the whole draft of bulls

We have had a great year here at Maryvale. With the support of new and repeat clients the highlights have included selling stud bulls to $9,500, stud females to $10,000, semen to $1,100 per dose, and strong private selection sales. Another highlight has been witnessing the positive influence of our new generation sires TMF Westwood, TMF Arizona, Maryvale Grange, and RLF Yardley. September 2013 also saw the arrival of the first set of calves by Maryvale Federa on Canadian soil. Top Meadow Farms have been rapt with their Maryvale Federa progeny which all arrived unassisted and with moderate birth weight. The “Maryvale Cow Time Sale” was also very successful with 72 stud females being sold from coast to coast. The most rewarding aspect across the last 12 months however has been the pleasure of showing a record number of cattle breeders through the Maryvale herd. We truly enjoy the opportunity to talk Limousin cattle with our colleagues in the beef industry. We are also excited by the growth in demand for Australian beef by burgeoning markets such as China. We acknowledge that 2013 saw a softening in beef prices, however the long term fundamentals for beef remain very strong and exciting. We also acknowledge that it has been a tough year for many northern and pastoral beef producers with prolonged dry conditions. We look forward to the next big rain in these areas and to see the country flourish again under the influence of rainfall. We know what it feels like to have dry times and it isn’t pleasant. One of the most enjoyable aspects of showing fellow Limousin breeders and beef producers through our herd is the opportunity to receive feedback on our breeding objectives and the type of cattle that we are striving to produce. Based on feedback and observation these are the things which we believe we are doing well. •

We have developed a unique type of Limousin at Maryvale with true softness and finishing ability. The level of softness inherent in our cattle does not happen in one or two generations. The softness in our breeding herd and sale bulls is the result of at least four or five generations of genetic selection on this trait.

Our herd also has an excellent level of structural soundness. This is demonstrated by animals which have excellent feet, a good depth of heel, good angularity in their rear legs, and smooth shoulders. This is supported by our strict policy of no hoof trimming – what you see is exactly what you get. We have also utilised independent structural assessor Dick Whale to structurally score our cattle each year since 2007.

Excellent udder quality. This has come about through strict selection on udder quality for the last seven years. Good udder quality is not only aesthetically pleasing, it also ensures that calves can get their first drink with ease and it also allows females to have longevity in the cow herd. •

2

Excellent docility. Our cattle and our herd are very docile by EBV and by nature. This has been observed by clients, vets, agents, and our colleagues across a number of breeds. A number of Limousin breeders have suggested to us that across large contempory groups our cattle are even quieter than their EBV’s suggest. This is just the way we like it!


The pursuit of Polledness and Homozygous Polledness. For the last three years, and in particular the last two joinings, we have used almost exclusively Homo Polled Limousin bulls. 100% of the animals and lots in this catalogue carry the polled gene. What is even more exciting is the Homozygous Polled bulls which we have been able to source to achieve this. As a group they are very consistent with each of our other breeding objectives.

Slick, fine hair coats. We like slick coated cattle and those that are first to develop a shiny coat in Spring and early summer. This trait is linked with softness and doing ability. Slick coated cattle present better in the market place and perform really well in pastoral environments.

Maternal strength. This has also been achieved through multiple generations of genetic selection on cattle that can perform in our environment and raise a fresh calf each year. We have a very short April to October growing season here at Maryvale and access to protein and energy from pasture outside of the June to November grazing months is limited. High stocking rate pressure has also enhanced this genetic selection process.

Our focus and recognition of industry needs and requirements and in particular the ability for our cattle to meet a wide range of market specifications. This was reinforced in October 2013 when we sold a line of grass finished pure Limousin heifers that averaged $1,148.57 head. Most of these heifers hit the premium MSA and EU grid, resulting in a 40 to 50 cents per kilogram premium.

Genetic diversity. While we have established a consistent type we have also been able to keep our genetic combinations “fresh” with new and exciting sire lines introduced each year. This has generally been achieved by focusing on a blend of Canadian and Australian genetics to produce the type of cattle that we strive for.

The catalogued draft of bulls also offers the same great opportunities that commercial producers come to expect of us. The strength of the Limousin breed, which cannot easily be replicated, is the breed’s capacity to produce high red meat yielding carcases. Like the Prime Lamb sires in the sheep industry our bulls provide an opportunity for producers to increase growth rates, increase muscling, improve carcase quality, and capitalise on hybrid vigour. We are really pleased with the years and years of genetic selection that has resulted in the softer, docile type of Limousin bulls that we now produce. These bulls have proven performance across a wide range of environments including stellar performance in the far north pastoral regions. The average 200, 400, and 600 day growth EBV’s of the entire draft of bulls place them in the Top 15% of the breed for growth. While achieving this phenomenal growth there is also a good selection of moderate birth weight, positive calving ease bulls across the draft. Whether or not you are in the market for a bull or female this year we extend a very warm welcome to you to attend our fourth on-property sale on Tuesday 25th February. We hope that you can join us to enjoy our hospitality.

the Helmsman auction SYSTEM This method of purchasing livestock combines the best features of both the auction system and the private selection process. We have chosen this selling system to provide our clients with an equal opportunity to operate on all of our bulls and females on offer while still maintaining some of the benefits of the private selection process that we have used in the past. Buyers have the opportunity to bid on any lots in the sale simultaneously and can bid on any lot right until the end of the sale. This process removes some of the pressure of a traditional auction and can assist you to purchase your animals of choice. Landmark will be facilitating the Helmsman auction process for us on the day of the sale. All agents will be offered 4% commission on any lots that they purchase on behalf of clients, provided that they introduce their buying clients to us, in writing, 24 hours before the start of the sale.

The Benefits 1. You have more time to consider lodging a bid. You can place genuine bids on any lot of your choice at any time during the sale period. Just remember, if you are only after one bull, only bid on one bull at a time – if your first choice exceeds your limit you can then start bidding on your next choice. 2. You have the opportunity to re-assess each lot during the sale period without any pressure to make an instant decision. 3. You have a greater opportunity to take home the lot numbers that you want, irrespective of sale lot order. For example, if your first choice is Lot 11 and your second choice was actually an earlier Lot, such as Lot 6, you can see what price Lot 11 makes before having to consider your second choice, even though your second choice was catalogued earlier. 4. When buying multiple lots, the helmsman process gives you the opportunity to average your purchase prices to suit your budget.

The Process 1. On arrival, the intending purchasers register at the bid table and receive a buyer number and a number of bid cards. 2. All animals will be penned and available for inspection on the day of the sale, with all relevant information provided in the catalogue. 3. When the sale commences, all lots are on the market simultaneously. You can bid on any animal, regardless of lot number, by filling out a bid card and handing it to a ‘runner’. 4. You may open the bidding at the upset price for each lot and the subsequent minimum bid size is $250 for live lots. There is no limit on the maximum size of the bid, however it must be greater than or equal to $250 or multiples thereof. 5. The upset prices for each lot will be provided on the day of the sale. 6. Bids are recorded with the bidder’s buyer number on a large board within the sale tent area. You can bid on any number of lots at once and can see at a glance whether your bid still stands or has been out bid. 7. There is no pressure to commit yourself to another bid. If your first choice animal goes over your limit you can still bid on any other animal in the sale. 8. A bid once submitted and recorded cannot be retracted, and the person submitting such a bid will be responsible for it, unless it is subsequently out bid. 9. The sale will remain open for a minimum of 20 minutes. Any registered bids after this minimum sale time will result in an extension of the auction for a specified length of time. 10. Further bids will trigger the same process until no more bids are received in a specified period, which will signify the end of the sale.

A guide to EBV Information Calving Ease

Calving ease EBV’s are based on calving ease (CE) scores, birth weights and gestation length. The more positive the calving ease EBV, the easier calving the bull’s progeny should be.

Birth Weight

Birth weight EBV (kg) is based on the measured birth weight of animals, adjusted for dam age. The lower the value, the lighter the calf at birth and the lower the likelihood of a difficult birth. This is particularly important when selecting sires for use over heifers.

Milk

200 Day Milk EBV (kg) is an estimate of an animals milking ability. For sires, this EBV is indicative of their daughter’s milking ability as it effects the 200 Day weights of their calves.

200 Day Growth

200 Day Growth EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of animals taken between 80 & 300 days of age. Values are adjusted to 200 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal’s genetic merit for growth to early stages.

400 Day Growth

400 Day Growth EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of the animals taken between 301 and 500 days, adjusted to 400 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal’s genetic merit for yearling weight.

600 Day Growth

600 Day Growth EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of animals taken between 501 and 900 days of age, adjusted to 600 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal’s genetic merit for growth beyond yearling age.

Docility

Docility EBV (%) is based on the animals docility score taken at weaning and estimates the genetic differences for docility. A more positive EBV indicates more docile progeny.

Domestic Terminal $ Index

Estimates the genetic differences between animals in net profitability per cow joined for an example commercial crossbred herd (run in a temperate environment) targeting grass finished production for the domestic trade. Animals are assumed to be pasture grown with finished progeny weighing 475kg at 18 months, from British Breed cows. All progeny are slaughtered.

Comment: We were very excited to secure the Australia semen rights in RPY Paynes Derby in November 2013. Derby appealed to us as a result of his flawless phenotype and strong maternal pedigree. Derby's dam Ivy's Polled Princess is a highly proven breeding female and was Canadian Show Dam of the Year for 3 out of 4 years between 2009 and 2012. We love the body type on Derby. He has more muscle and shape than a lot of Euro's and yet combines this with an incredible depth of flank and that really soft body type that we strive for. He is also Homo Polled by pedigree allowing us to continue our focus on developing Homozygous Polled Limousin cattle. Derby also offers massive scrotal size and excellent structural integrity. RPY Paynes Derby achieved an excellent show record, winning Grand Champion Limousin bull at three major shows in Western Canada in October and November 2013. He was also Supreme Champion bull of all breeds at one of these shows. RPY Paynes Derby went on to sell for $31,000 at the National Western Stock Show to Highland Stock Farms. This was the highest price across all breeds. We believe these two packages of 50 straws offer a very exciting opportunity for some additional Limousin breeders in Australia to get in on the ground floor with us on this outstanding bull. We are very excited about the breeding potential of this bull and can't wait to use him on some of our TMF Westwood daughters. Auctioned on a $ per straw basis.

Comment: Another exciting opportunity to join us on the ground floor with a great bull. We believe that GHR Polled Aftershock provides a very exciting addition to Polled French Pure genetics. He is deep bodied, sound structured and walks out very well. He also has a great topline, a good depth of flank, and a fine, slick hair coat. GHR Polled Aftershock also offers some animals in his pedigree which are an outcross to existing Polled French Pure genetics. We believe that he is a Polled French Pure animal that offers constitution, cover, and carcase that will blend really well with both existing French Pure and purebred genetics in Australia. GHR Polled Aftershock is currently in collection and it is anticipated that his semen will arrive in Australia in July/August 2014. Semen will be dispatched upon arrival in Australia to the four successful purchasers of these packages of 25 straws. Payment will be requested after arrival and prior to dispatch. We have also been impressed with the volume, capacity, and softness of GHR Polled Aftershock's dam who is pictured below. Auctioned in $/straw.

Why we love Limo’s! After 28 years of breeding Limousin cattle we remain very strong advocates of the Limousin breed and what they can offer the beef industry. Our strong alliance to the Limousin breed can be described by two key words, efficiency and flexibility. It has been scientifically proven in many independent trials that the Limousin breed is the most efficient and turning feed products, whether it be grain or grass, into saleable red meat. The reason for Limousin’s outstanding conversion rates comes down to a unique gene in the breed known as the F94L gene. Most of the European breeds generate an increase in dressing percentage in the order of 4%. The unique F94L gene in the Limousin breed however also generates an unmatched increase in retail beef yield with increases of 6% not being uncommon. Retail beef yield is measured by the number of kilograms of saleable red meat that can be generated from a dressed carcase after it has been boned out and trimmed. Considering a 450 kilogram live weight animal, a 4% increase in dressing percentage and a 6% increase in retail beef yield, can result in an increase in saleable red meat from that animal in the order of 28 kilograms. At a conservative retail value of $16.50 per kilogram, this results in an additional $462 of value being generated from the animal. It is no surprise why many astute butchers and processors for the domestic market are closely aligned with the Limousin breed. A 4% increase in dressing percentage and a 6% increase in retail beef yield is what can

be achieved between a pure British breed animal and a pure Limousin. Hence if a Limousin bull is joined to a British breed female, such as an Angus or Hereford, the increase in dressing percentage and saleable red meat yield is halved and the resulting progeny would have approximately 2% more dressing percentage and 3%more retail beef yield. This would result in an increase in saleable red meat from the Limousin sired progeny of approximately $230 per carcase. We have an enormous amount of respect for the Angus breed and always will have. They are excellent maternal cattle, they perform well in feedlots, they have excellent adaptability to a wide range of climates, and they have a strong capacity to produce high marbling carcases. Given this, they make excellent mothers of Limousin sired calves! As much respect as we have for the Angus breed, we remain far too committed to the strengths of the Limousin breed to consider breeding pure Angus seedstock at present.

Here are a few reasons why: Limousin bulls joined to Angus females will smash the growth rates that could otherwise be achieved from the same cows being joined to Angus bulls. The resultant calves from a Limousin x Angus joining will have more muscle and shape than pure Angus calves and we have seen consistent premiums of 20 cents per kilogram live weight for B muscled cattle over C muscled cattle in the market place. The Limousin x Angus female is a brilliant F1 breeding female and has outperformed pure Angus females for maternal strength in a number of situations. The Limousin breed is free of major genetic defects and as a result increased productivity can be achieved from joining Angus females to a different breed. Hybrid vigour pays dividends in many ways! The market for highly marbled beef is capped. New and emerging markets such as China will look for efficiency in beef production and procurement before they will look for large volumes of highly marbled beef. It has been widely proven that Limousin x Angus progeny can meet a wide range of market specifications including the premium MSA and EU markets. If we were to breed pure Angus, we would seek to develop a type of Angus that had more muscle and shape, a midmaturity pattern, increased docility, enhanced structural soundness, and the right amount of softness or finishing ability. This could all be achieved however we would end of with a type of animal that would be very similar to the bulls and genetics offered in this catalogue. Here is the dilemma though…it would be highly unlikely that the resultant animals could ever carry 2 copies of the Limousin F94L gene and there would be an efficiency loss to the beef industry! To us an efficiency loss is considered counterproductive.

Given this, we have two recommendations for the next few years ahead… Go China and Go Limousin beef producers!

Results of the Maryvale “Cow Time” Sale – Spring 2013 We were really pleased with the results of our private selection female sale held in the Spring months of 2013. 35 cows and calves topped at $10,000 and averaged $3,729 while 37 unjoined heifers topped at $3,500 and averaged $1,922. In total the sale grossed $201,650 with the combined 72 lots averaging a very healthy $2,800. The sale outcome will raise more than $3,000 in support for Limousin Youth. The Ganian Limousin stud, from Marsden Park in Sydney NSW, purchased the top priced cow and calf unit Maryvale Curacao 7057 for $10,000. Maryvale Curacao is a Homo Polled donor female and she had a strapping Homo Polled heifer calf at foot, Maryvale Jindabyne J350, sired by Maryvale Grange. She formed part of a large draft of females purchased by the Ganian herd and will become one of their cornerstone donor females as they rapidly increase the size of their stud herd at Marsden Park. Three females shared the equal second top price of $6,000. James and Casey Morris, Morrisvale Limousin, WA selected Maryvale Endless Summer 9310 for $6,000 with an excellent bull calf at foot sired by TMF Arizona. The bull calf, Maryvale Jeep Wrangler J427, formed one of three great calves by TMF Arizona secured by James and Casey in their selected draft of 7 cows and calves and 2 heifers. Maryvale Charisma 7043 and Maryvale 4702 also made $6,000 with both of these black females going to the Ganian Limousin stud in Marsden Park. Both of these females have also been marked as future donor females for the growth of the Ganian Limousin stud herd. Kevin and Sue Nettleton, Unison Limousin Stud, WA secured an excellent draft of cows and calves and heifers and were the first to look through the herd and make their selections. Included in their draft of Maryvale females were the equal top priced heifers. These two heifers, Maryvale Henrietta and Maryvale Heidelberg, were twins from Palmdale A189 and sired by the highly proven TMF Westwood. These outstanding heifers are full siblings to our stud sire Maryvale Grange and also Maryvale Goliath who sold in our 2013 sale for $9,500 to David and Jess Eagleson for their Ulster 1 Limousin Stud in Qld. Buyers at the Maryvale “Cow Time” sale really appreciated the opportunity to look through the whole herd, make their selections without any time pressure, and with support from the Maryvale team. We really appreciated the opportunity to spend time with each buyer and assist with customising each draft of females to suit their requirements and breeding objectives. The open herd concept worked really well and buyers appreciated that we made virtually every female in the herd available for selection. Knowing that they could select any female in the herd gave the buyers a great deal of confidence in the standard and quality of the females available.

Kevin and Sue Nettleton from the Unison Limousin stud selected a total of 12 Maryvale females. Other highlights in their quality draft of females included Maryvale Diamond Jewel 8148, a Palmdale Saffron female with a cracking bull calf at foot, Maryvale Jackson J419, sired by TMF Westwood. They also purchased Maryvale Fiesta F8, a TMF Polled Harmonica daughter with a standout heifer calf at foot, Maryvale Jive J319, also sired by TMF Westwood. To add to the TMF Westwood influence in their excellent draft of females Kevin and Sue also selected a Homo Polled ET heifer, Maryvale Jess J301, a daughter of the $10,000 sale topper.

James and Casey Morris, Morrisvale Limousin stud selected a total of 9 Maryvale females. Their quality draft included ET heifer Maryvale Josephine J302, a Wulfs Xtractor daughter who was the result of successfully flushing TMF Westwood daughter Maryvale Geraldine as a heifer. James and Casey’s draft included two excellent bull calves by TMF Arizona, Maryvale Journeyman J455 and Maryvale Jeep Wrangler J427, and a sensational TMF Arizona heifer calf Maryvale Justine J325. Brighton Farms, WA also selected a cow and calf unit. Underpinning the scale of the sale, the Ganian Limousin herd put together an excellent draft of 50 females, made up of 20 cows and calves and 30 unjoined heifers. Together with previous purchases of Maryvale females at our last three on property sales these females will form a very solid foundation for their Ganian herd at Marsden Park. Included in their draft of heifers were 7 daughters of Maryvale Deep Blue and 5 daughters of Froghollow Enigma. Other females of note amongst their draft of cows and calves included Refstrup Tabias daughter Maryvale Danish Design 8134, French Pure female Maryvale Waitress 5, and Palmdale Uroma C7, the mother of Maryvale Halberg, Lot 2 in our current sale catalogue. We wish all of the buyers well with their purchases and look forward to following the progress of these 72 females into the future. We are most appreciative of the confidence shown in our breeding program and look forward to continuing to offer females under the open herd approach into the future. To support interest shown during the Maryvale “Cow Time” Sale we will also be flushing a number of our elite females during 2014 and making embryos available to Limousin breeders across Australia.
