B BAR CATTLE CO. Welcome to the 16th Annual Anchor B / B Bar / Carpenter Limousin Sale! We would sincerely like to thank all of the buyers and bidders for their continued support towards our program. Every year we try to develop a stronger more consistent set of bulls for your appraisal. We strive to produce bulls that are docile, have volume, sound structured and are eye appealing with breed character. Our goal is to develop bulls for longevity, we wean onto a ten acre grass run mid-august to promote lots of exercise. We feed a high roughage TMR ration that consists of oat silage, alfalfa/grass hay, bull development pellet and right now onyx mineral for a gain of 3-3.5 lbs per day.

B Bar Cattle

We are committed to producing high quality Purebred Limousin genetics for the commercial and purebred industry. Our bulls are affordable; over the last 4 years 67% of our bulls have sold between $3,500-$6,500. The open heifers were a highlight in the sale last year and once again we bring you three tie-broke heifers from strong cow families. These females are being developed along with our replacement heifers.

CARPENTER CATTLE CO. On behalf of myself and my family I would like to welcome you to the annual A/B/C bull sale. 2016 was a extremley busy, but rewarding year for my family and I, as I moved a house out to the farm to start slowly transitioning to full time farming and ranching. In 2016 we calved out 30 purebred Limousin cows as well as 250 commercial cows. We try to focus on quality over quantity, but in saying this we would like to grow our purebred numbers in the future. As far as our bulls on offer this year we have three bulls we are really happy to put up for your appraisal. All three are unique in their own make up and bring different traits to the industry. Once again we look forward to seeing you on sale day and please don’t hesitate to call with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your interest in our operation, whether you are a long time Anchor B customer or a new reader into our program, we continue to appreciate your support. Bev & I made the decision to move back closer to my family farm (1 ½ miles west of Mom & Dad) in 2003 when we were expecting our first child Riley. We have seen a lot of changes since this time and thankfully most of these changes were improvement to the beef industry. We have spent countless hours like yourselves with cattle & kids and as you can see over the next 7 pages these two things are a mainstay at Anchor B. We love what the Limousin breed & beef industry has taught us about ourselves & the relationships we have gained along the way are truly to be cherished. Anchor B Limousin was established over 45 years ago by my parents Martin & Donna Bohrson (who dispersed their purebred cowherd in 2011). At that time Bev & I decided to expand our cowherd ownership to now what is 145 cows in 2017 (approx 60 purebred, 85 commercial). We utilize embryo technology & AI sires to introduce new genetics to our herd, however our consistency is driven by our senior herdsire, Anchor B “The Boss”. “Boss” has been a mainstay in our program since we purchased him from Dad’s final Anchor B Bull Sale in 2012 as the high seller. As you will see in Lots 15-29, our 15 bulls have a significant influence from Anchor B “The Boss”. We are very proud that in our 2017 Bull line up, 6 bulls are out of first calving “Boss” daughters & we have 3 “Boss” sons. Our heifers are also a “Boss” daughter & granddaughter. The “Boss” influence has had a significant impact on our herd & will continue to in the future. If you have any questions, please call Beverly or myself, we have a lot of pride in our cowherd & want to assist you further in any way possible. As many know, I work full time in Saskatoon & truly enjoy talking cows, pedigrees, & business. None of this would be possible if I didn’t have the unbelievable hard work & support of Beverly, Riley, Sienna, & Avery. Our operation is truly a family business & we will work hard to earn yours. Thanks again to our great partners, the Boon’s & Carpenter’s as we continue to appreciate your support of us, our operation, & your mentorship to our kids. We look forward to seeing you March 17th @ Saskatoon Livestock Sales.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS “We bought a Carpenter bull in 2015 and he has turned out great. He is very eager and quiet to work with. His first crop of calves look great, they are fleshy with great hind quarters and are easy to put weight on.” Quintin Senger, Bradwell, SK

B Bar Cognac on display in Denver

“The cattle we purchased from B Bar have performed well beyond our expectations. When the time came to export semen to Australia and import the cattle we bought into the USA, the expertise and customer service we received was equal to the quality of their genetics” John Franseen of Franseen Limousin, WI.

Congratulations to Gordie & Lorelee Zyznomirski on being awarded the 2016 Saskatchewan Limousin Assoc. Commercial Cattleman of the Year.

DATA EXPLANATIONS Carcass Scan Data Interpretation

How to Interpret the Results – Shari Leachman Scan results are returned to the producer for four measurements: 1) Ribeye Area (sq. inc. or sq. cms.) Ribeye Area is the cross section measure of the ribeye muscle at the same location and generally indicates yield potential of the animal. 2) Percent Intramuscular Fat (%). Intramuscular Fat is the percentage of intramuscular fat within the lean muscle of the ribeye and generally indicates marbling potential. 3) Rib Fat (in. or mm.) Rib Fat is the subcutaneous fat layer thickness on the exterior of the ribeye at the 12th/13th rib and generally indicates finish or condition of the animal. 4) Rump Fat (in. or mm.) Each ultrasound carcass trait is expressed in both an actual and an age-adjusted measurement. Scan results also include indexes for each trait, which show the animal’s rank above or below average in the herd. The adjusted measures and indexes are the most informative in allowing comparisons between animals within the same herd. However, the only way to accurately assess ultrasound carcass differences between herds is through utilization of EPD’s. Ultrasound carcass traits are highly heritable, so selection is very effective in changing/ improving these characteristics.

Leptin Testing

Leptin is a protein found in the white fat tissue. The more leptin produced, the stronger the signal sent to the brain to reduce appetite. The leptin protein is directly correlated with appetite, energy utilization, and fat deposition. There are 3 results found in Leptin test TT, CT, and CC. There are different benefits in all 3 genotypes depending on what you are wanting to accomplish. A TT sire is used to improve marbling in your feeder cattle. A CC sired bull would be used to increase red meat yield and ribeye in your cattle. If your goal is increase red meat yield, create larger ribeye and also gain or minimally sustain your marbling then CT bull best fits. All bulls in this sale are Leptin Tested!

Explanation of EPD Terms:

EPD: Expected Progeny Differences (EPD’s) are used to compare the genetic merit of animals in various traits. An EPD predicts the difference in performance of future offspring of a parent, as compared to progeny from other parents. 1. BW: This value predicts the difference in average birthweight of a bull’s calves compared to the breed average (expressed in lbs.). 2. WW: Indicates the ability of a sire’s calves to grow from birth to weaning (expressed in lbs.).

3. YW: Growth from birth to yearling (expressed in lbs.). 4. Milk: A sire’s milk EPD is expressed as the additional pounds of weaning weight of calves (grand progeny of sire) from daughters, due to genes for milk passed on from a sire to his daughters. 5. SC: Scrotal circumference has been found to be a good indicator of age at puberty and is a highly heritable trait. EPD’s for scrotal circumference are expressed in centimeters (cm) with higher values indicating genes for larger yearling scrotal circumferences of sons and early puberty of daughters. 6. DOC: A temperament score with higher numbers indicating a more docile attitude.
