East Poplar Simmentals 39th in 2019
Bull & Female Sale Friday,
March 1 , 2019 st
Johnstone Auction Mart Ltd. Moose Jaw, Sask. 4 miles West of Moose Jaw on Trans-Canada Highway
Foreword Welcome to LaBatte Simmentals 39th Annual Spring Bull & Female Sale on Friday, March 1st, 2019 at Johnstone Auction Mart, four miles west of Moose Jaw on #1 highway. Again we would like to thank all the bidders and buyers from our past sales for the continued support and effort you make each year to attend our sale. It is very much appreciated. As I write this foreword in mid January it has really been a nice winter so far, milder temperature than usual and less wind than usual. This really helps the feed piles and makes life a little easier. Calf and cow prices have risen quite a bit in January with the heavy calves bringing almost the same dollars per pound as the lighter calves. Those big, soggy Simmental and Simmental cross calves are bringing a premium and adding extra profit dollars in the commercial people’s pockets. There’s been some changes in our sale again this year as Meadow Acres Farms, our guest consignor for the past five years, have grown their own numbers where they are able to have their own sale on their farm in mid March. The Fornwalds were great guest consignors bringing quality bulls to our sale. They believed in the same values as us, focusing on the commercial industry first, purchasing bulls to better raise the quality and kind the commercial people are looking for. Thanks Dustin, Kirsten, Blair and Laurel for all the hard work you did at our sale and all the best to you in your future endeavors. With that brings our new guest consignor, East Poplar Simmentals, Kyron & Kelsey Manske of Coronach, SK. These young, enthusiastic Simmental breeders purchased fifty cows from us this fall with the option of putting some bulls in our annual bull sale. They will have ten bulls in this year’s sale and will have more in the coming years. Many of you might know Kelsey already as she is the YCSA Coordinator for the Canadian Simmental Association and does a great job with the young kids coming up in the livestock industry. Kyron worked for me one spring and summer a few years back and was a very good, fun hired man. I’ve known the Manske family for a lot of years and they are good, hard working people. I think they are, and we are for sure, pretty excited having them as our new guest consignor. As for our bull sale offering this year it will consist of 54 thick, meaty, red, black and fullblood bulls. We will be selling our first sons of the $100,000 Wheatland Bentley bull that ourselves, Circle 7, Soderglen and Cowtrax purchased in Wheatland’s 2017 Bull Sale. His progeny are only available at these operations. He’s made our black bull pen the best it’s ever been. Our red pen is headed up by some new genetics also, first sons off our Agribition Champion, Captain Scream. They are thick, meaty, deep sided bulls that will catch your eye. Also the first sons of the R Plus Red Century bull that we purchased with Circle 7 in 2017. In our judgment he was in the top 2-3 red bulls sold that year and are very satisfied with his progeny. Added to the red section SVS Brooks and IPU Red Deputy, the reds are one of the most consistent groups we’ve had. The fullbloods are headed by the French Attack sons, Mr. Adonis sons, Solstice sons and a very good, polled Blueprint son. These fullblood bulls make a great cross with your black and red cows producing those sought after baldy calves. In the open purebred heifer division we will be selling 18 top replacement heifers, red and black. If you are unable to attend the sale, give myself or East Poplar Simmentals or any of the sale staff a call to have the sale offering evaluated for you. We can be reached the day prior and sale day on our cell phones: Barry 306-815-7900 or Kyron 306-267-7530 or Johnstone Auction Mart at 306-693-4715. If you have questions earlier give us a call on our cells or our home numbers. The sale will also be broadcast live on dlms.ca, so contact Mark Shologan for more information and help getting approved for bidding, phone number 780-699-5082. We welcome your visit to our farms anytime to see the bulls and heifers first hand. Come join us Thursday night at the Heritage Inn in our hospitality room for some socializing and laughs. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, March 1st at Johnstone Auction Mart, Moose Jaw, SK. Join us for a complimentary dinner prior to the sale and also after the sale for some socializing, refreshments and snacks. Best of luck in 2019 and hope to see you sale day.
Barry P.S. Grandkids are doing great. They’re all growing like weeds and are full of energy. Brodyn, the oldest, was fifteen years old in November, is six feet tall and a great help around the farm and the cattle. The other boys are into hockey and, get this, “horses”. They’re into 4-H, both grain and beef. The girls are busy with karate and basketball. They brought Grandpa pizza tonight for supper after basketball practice and, of course, we found a little ice cream for dessert. We’re so lucky that they all live so close and go to school in Gladmar as we get to see them quite often.

IPU DILLINGER 7F
HOMO POLLED. This Captain Scream son has been a standout since birth. He looked great as a calf, great in the summer and continued on through weaning and still is a standout today. His mother is a solid red Liner 56U cow with a great udder. In last year’s sale her Westcott son sold to the good purebred operation of Pearson Simmentals at Calmar, AB. She also has two sons working in the commercial herds of Frank Arnal, Eastend, SK and Rolling H Farms, Biggar, SK. 83F himself has an excellent body type, long, great rear quarter, is deep bodied, loose hided, big topped and has big testicles. He had an actual weaning weight in early September of 1010lbs. We think a lot of this homo polled herdsire prospect and think he has a great future.
HOMO POLLED. A dark red Dillinger 80B son out of a first calf Bartender daughter going back to a really good Red Ace cow. This is Brodyn’s bull. His mom and dad gave him the good 121D cow as a heifer calf for all the good work he does on the farm and with the cattle. He can run any piece of equipment on the farm, helps with the cattle, and we think he’s a pretty nice kid too. He’s been rewarded with this good, dark red Dillinger son who should be a calving ease specialist. He’s very smooth made, long bodied and has a really nice uddered Bartender daughter for a mother. He’s in the top 3% of the breed for calving ease EPD, top 5% for birth weight, top 2% for maternal calving ease and top 5% for API.

Here’s a really nice made, smooth, long, dark, good haired Red Century son out of a really nice Horizon cow. His sire, Red Century, was purchased out of the 2017 R Plus sale as the high selling red bull. In our estimation he was one of the really top red bulls to sell that year. He was so loose made, deep bodied, great haired and thick quartered. We think this bull will sire some really nice calves with his type, hair coat, moderate 90lb birth weight and style.

She has had two progeny go through the sale already, a son to Frischholz Farms at Minton, SK and a daughter in last year’s sale selling to Blooming Prairie Simmentals at Ambrose, ND. A nice low birth weight, great color and hair, moderate and thick, this Century son will be a good one.

She was bred Edition and the resulting calf is a very good, moderate framed, thick made, great haired, solid red son. He will be a non-diluter, being out of two black parents which means you can breed black cows to him and you’ll either get red calves or black calves, no grays. This is a bull we liked all summer and still do.

His daughters have been high sellers at female production sales in 2018.

She weaned this bull off in early September at a whopping 1000lbs. Not bad for a second calver. 109F is long, has lots of top and middle, is thick butted and great haired.

They’re long spined, so smooth made, thick and meaty and structurally very sound. What really sold us on Brooks was his mother, the Red Sara cow. She was moderate framed with loads of capacity, beautifully uddered, dark cherry red and good footed. Her 2 yr old daughter we saw was outstanding also. This 121F bull will sire some really good females for the replacement pen with his Specialist mother and the Sara cow in his pedigree. His male calves will have the length and muscle to push the scales down.

The full Fleck sire Mr. Adonis has raised some outstanding progeny in the fullblood business. His daughters are great females and his bulls very saleable.

He had an actual weaning weight in early September of 1040lbs, our heaviest weaning bull of the year. His mother, Temptress Clair, was a beautiful cow, powerful, long bodied, deep, thick and had an excellent udder. 45F’s calves will really push the scales down in the fall.

He was purchased by ourselves, Circle 7, Cowtrax and Soderglen Ranches. When talking to the sales managers, they described this bull as a meat wagon and would sire powerful bull calves. He has not let us down as his first calf crop is exceptional, both bulls and heifers. 58F’s dam is a really exceptional cow, pear shaped, thick and easy doing.

FGAF Precious Thing 402T Two super blaze face, black, half Fleck bulls out of an awesome cow. When Danny Skeels and myself purchased Precious Thing out of the Prospect Hill dispersal there was one thing I asked for and that was we flush her black at least once. What other choice of a black bull than Springcreek Liner 56U. I was hoping for some females with 56U and Precious Thing, as they would be the start of a new black cow family. Unfortunately we only got one out of the five embryos to stick but the embryo split and the recipient cow had twins, almost identical. These are a special pair of bulls, long, thick, deep, good quartered and they have great dispositions. If I was a commercial breeder, I would buy both of these bulls. They would raise consistent, thick, meaty steers and what a set of heifers for replacements. They’ll work great on traditional cows, red cows and black cows and should throw a large amount of those highly sought after baldy calves.

At a couple of months of age his mother had an unfortunate back injury and had to be put down. We had bought a Holstein cow (Freckles) to put twins on so she inherited 74F. That cow raised five calves and weaned over 3900lbs of calves. And, yes, we kept her and bred her. 74F’s mother was really a good uddered cow, super, super long and went back to the Blackbird 223T cow family.

He has a nice, moderate birth weight of 92lbs, is so smooth made, well balanced, thick and deep, has a perfect hair coat and is structurally very good. Again, he is the kind and type we strive to raise for our purebred and commercial customers. He has a real nice balanced set of EPDs with an API in the top 20% and TI in the top 10%. He also had an actual weaning weight of 1010lbs and ranked #2 against all his contemporaries.

133F is a twin full brother to 132F and he was one of the five calves on our Holstein, “Freckles”. She did a great job on all those calves weaning this guy off at 885lbs. This 133F Priority son is really balanced nicely, and is deep and thick. He has an excellent set of EPDs, being in the top 50% in 10 of the 13 categories. He’s in the top 20% for calving ease, top 10% for weaning and yearling weights, the top 30% for API and the top 10% for TI. The baldy cattle are becoming very popular. The order buyers and feedlot operators like these cattle with a little chrome on them knowing there is probably some Simmental influence in them to give them the gain-ability and carcass values they’re looking for. And the baldy replacement females definitely bring a premium.

Introduction We are thrilled to be the guest consignor to the LaBatte Simmental Bull and Female Sale! Having the opportunity to purchase a group of cows from one of the leading herds in Canada and be invited to one of the most anticipated sales of the bull sale season is both a dream and an honour. Thank you Barry and Brenda for giving us this opportunity. We are very excited and grateful to be working with the LaBatte family. East Poplar Simmentals may be a new name and fresh faces to some of you so here is a little introduction. The farm is located east of Coronach, SK and we are strictly a cattle operation. In 2006, after many years of using Simmental bulls on our commercial cows, we decided to get into the purebred business. In 2014, Kyron moved back to the farm and took over the cattle operation. Today we run around 130 cows with about 110 being purebreds and the remainder commercials. Until now the bulls were mostly sold off the farm by private treaty. Besides the cattle we have some other enterprises on the go. We do custom swathing and haying, are Gallagher and Stockade dealers and Kelsey is the Program Coordinator for the National Young Canadian Simmental Association. We welcomed our baby girl Embrie into the world last September and are excited to watch her grow up in this business. This yearâ€™s set of bulls is likely one of our most powerful sets to date. We are proud of the bulls we have to offer in this yearâ€™s sale and think that there is a selection of bulls which can work in many different operations. We believe in raising bulls backed by strong cow families and that is a common element across all the sire groups this year. All the bulls are on our herd health program and will be semen tested and guaranteed. Delivery is free of charge, but we do ask that any bulls that come back to our place for wintering are insured. Most of the bulls in our offering have been homo polled and homo black tested and results will be available sale day. Visitors are always welcome and the bulls are available to be viewed on the farm at any time or give us a call to discuss any of our offering. Videos of the bulls will be available on our Facebook page the beginning of February. We have an extensive list of professional sale consultants that can be of service if you are not able to make the sale and the sale will be broadcast live on www.dlms.ca. Finally, a big thank you to all our past customers. Many of you have been long time repeat buyers and without you we wouldnâ€™t have made it this far. We look forward to seeing you at the sale and are eager to meet new cattle enthusiasts to discuss how our program can work for you. Hope to see you all March 1st at Johnstone Auction Mart in Moose Jaw, SK! Kyron & Kelsey Manske

EAST POPLAR LOTTO 802F
To say we are excited about this guy would be an understatement. 802F has been a standout all summer and with a pedigree that reads like his it’s easy to understand why. The guess work is done on this guy being out of the highly proven Pashmenia 403P cow and sired by Lotto. When we purchased these embryos from Barry this was the quality we had in mind. We have two full sisters in the replacement pen and purchased another full sister in the group of cows we recently bought from Labatte’s. A full brother to this guy sold to Westway Farms through this sale a few years back for $15,500 and has been used successfully in their program. You have to appreciate 802F for his depth of quarter, huge rib and width of base.

EAST POPLAR BLK BRINKS 808F
Here is a bull we have been impressed with since a calf. He’s a powerful, deep bodied, smooth made bull with a tonne of middle. We lost the Brinks 619D bull due to injury after his first year of service, but the calves we have out of him sure make us wish we had more. A lot of maternal strength behind 808F with the LRX 12Z cow on the top side who has done great things for the Muirhead program, and on the bottom side of the pedigree he comes from one of our best cow families. His dam, EPS 532C, is a moderate framed, easy doing female with a real nice udder and is quickly establishing herself as one of our favorite cows.

Both of these bulls stem back to the East Poplar Suzy 8S cow who left a lasting impression on our herd with 19 females in our herd tracing back to her and another three who have sold through Simmsational. 832F will have your steer calves pounding the scale down in the fall and leave you with some strong replacement heifers.

The Brinks 619D bull really stamped his calves with the same look and presence about them. This half blood bull is a perfect example of that; big hipped, deep bodied and loads of top. You have to appreciate how smooth shouldered he is and how he transitions into his front end. This guy strides out nicely and has style to burn. Look to 819F to add power to your calf crop while still maintaining some calving ease. The dam of 819F is a smaller framed Angus cow that weaned this guy off at 64.9% of her body weight.

We purchased 885F’s dam in 2016 from Erixon’s and she went on to be the Grand Champion Simmental female at Manitoba AgEx that year. She is a tank of a cow who is backed by the EDN Nika 37N cow who has done a great job for Dave & Krista. We quickly put her into our embryo transplant program and are expecting 6 maternal siblings to 885F this year.

Her mother, the Black Attack 247Z cow, has had three progeny go through our bull and female sale. Her first daughter sold to Anwender Simmentals, Radville, SK in the 2015 sale. In 2016 her El Tigre son was one of our high selling bulls going to Hansen Simmental Ranch, ND and in our 2018 sale her El Tigre son sold to our good commercial bull customer Allemand Ranches, SK. Also, East Poplar Simmentals purchased her 2016 El Tigre daughter in their package of cows. Uptown Girl 158F is a really nice, feminine, great haired, pear shaped Priority daughter. These Priority daughters are just calving now and we’re really impressed with them.

In last year’s sale her heifer topped the red division with her Red Deputy daughter selling for $15,000 to KT Ranches, BC. We own this heifer 119F jointly with Bar M Simmentals, Gillette, WY. Jim purchased the 140B cow as a bred heifer at Simmsational for $35,000 and decided to leave her in Canada. Her Westcott daughter is a moderate framed, deep, angular, feminine, broody heifer with a great future ahead of her. You can already see she is going to have a perfect udder like the Pocahontas cow family does. We think this heifer calf has a great amount of potential for her new owners with her pedigree, style and broodiness.

HOMO POLLED. Another granddaughter of the Pocahontas 68M cow. 126F’s dam, the IPU 68M Red Essence 197X cow, knows how to produce the good ones. In the 2015 Simmsational sale her Bootlegger daughter brought $25,000, selling to Quinn Wilson of Wilson Stock Farms and in the 2016 Simmsational sale her daughter was the top seller of the sale going to Red Top Simmentals and Beechinor Bros. for $29,000. She is now in their transplant embryo programs. This 197X daughter is out of R Plus Red Century, the popular Hitman son we bought out of Marlin’s 2017 bull sale where he was the high selling red bull. 126F herself is going to be a lot like her mother; deep BW: 98. adjWW: 713.

She has turned out to be an awesome looking cow with a perfect udder. We’re really pleased with how the SVS Brooks 669D bull is breeding for us. He was purchased for $70,000 out of the Sunny Valley sale going to Mike Imler of MI Simmentals. We were runners up on him and were very fortunate Mike sold us a semen pack in him. He sires excellent bulls and heifers. This dark cherry red daughter of his is nice fronted, has a great hair coat, is feminine, long bodied, deep and has lots of eye appeal.

This heifer has a beautiful blaze down the middle of her head, is very feminine, nice fronted and just a cool heifer.

This is one of our feature red heifers sired by the 2018 Agribition Grand Champion Bull, Swan Lake Red Circuit 28D, shown by Swan Lake Farms, Greg and Branden Goudy. We feel this heifer has loads of potential. She’s mothered by a really good, blaze faced, Horizon cow that had a heifer go through this sale before, selling to Jetstream Livestock, ON. She is deep, angular, attractive, good haired and a brood cow in the making. Being out of the reigning Agribition Champion doesn’t hurt either.

This is a tremendous Spark Plug heifer off a really good Beef Maker cow going back to the Noremac 16M cow family that 3D Simmentals and ourselves had so much success with. This will be the sixth progeny that 87X has put through this sale. Four bulls selling to the good commercial herds of Robin Frerotte, SK, Glen Aldentaler, SD, Nick Stormo, SD and Allemand Ranches, SK, a $12,000 heifer to Jean-Francois LeBlond, PQ and now this really good Spark Plug daughter. 166F is deep bodied, pear shaped, has that cow look and is out of an outstanding cow family.

Spark Plug’s dam just recently sold for $50,000 at Springcreek’s December sale. This heifer is just like her dad, having a blaze face. These red and blacks with some chrome on them are really in demand now.
