Bull & Female Sale Friday,

March 3, 2017 1:00 p.m.

Johnstone Auction Mart Ltd. Moose Jaw, Sask. 4 miles West of Moose Jaw on Trans-Canada Highway


Foreword Welcome to LaBatte Simmentals 37th Annual Spring Bull & Female Sale on Friday, March 3rd, 2017 at Johnstone Auction Mart, 4 miles west of Moose Jaw, SK on #1 Highway. We’d really like to thank again 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 greatly appreciated. The cattle market is rebounding nicely from its down turn this summer and fall. Calf prices, feeder cattle and cull cow prices made a big upward swing late in the year and early 2017. The Simmental and Simmental cross calves are still in high demand and bring premiums. At the commercial bred heifer sales this November and December, the Simm-Angus females were definitely the sale features and brought big premiums for the owners. The Simmental breed offers the commercial industry its high maternal traits, milk and muscle, superior performance and carcass value. From the commercial producer to the feedlots and to the slaughter plants, Simmental genetics are in high demand. Last year we told you about out new venture of buying a ranch five miles north of our place and running commercial cows on it. Our son Lynlee and his wife Hayley are equal partners in this ranch and Lynlee has taken on most of the responsibility for running it. We will be calving out about 220 commercial cows this late spring, all bred to Simmental bulls. It’s run quite different from our purebred operation in some ways, calving in May and June, winter bale grazing and turning bulls out on the 1st of August. But we will still look for the same traits as our purebred operation – acceptable calving, performance, muscle and structural correctness and temperament. Our bull sale offering this year along with Meadow Acres Farms will consist of close to 100 bulls in total, polled, thick, meaty red and black bulls and a handful of red goggle eyed Fullblood Fleckvieh bulls. They are sired by some of the industries leading sires such as El Tigre, Lotto, Red Zone, Royal Red, Horizon and Vegas. We strive to produce the right kind of bulls for our seedstock producers and commercial customers. Bulls that have fleshing ability, lots of middle and top, high maternal traits, good temperament and structurally good on their feet and legs. Our guest consignor, Meadow Acres Farms, have the same philosophy as us and same goals as us of always trying to be better at providing high quality Simmental beef bulls to the livestock industry. If you are unable to attend the sale, give myself or Meadow Acres Farms 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 Dustin 306 487-7510 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. LaBatte Simmentals will have sixteen outstanding red and black polled open heifers for the sale, sired by El Tigre, Soda Pop, Dillinger, Red Zone and Vegas. 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 3rd at Johnstone Auction Mart, Moose Jaw, SK. Please 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 2017 and hope to see you sale day. Barry P.S. Grandkids are doing great as usual. They’re growing up so fast. Brodyn, our oldest, is a teenager now, is interested in the cattle and is taller than Wade now. Oh, I guess that doesn’t mean much. LOL. The boys are all involved in hockey and all on different teams. They’re involved in 4-H Beef and Grain also. The girls just went on a big trip to Disneyworld in Florida with Janalee and Tim and had a blast. They’re involved in gymnastics and karate. We’re lucky to have all our grandkids living so close to us, as we get to watch them grow up. They make us laugh and be proud grandparents.

IPU 163X VEGAS 5D

This homo polled son of Vegas is out of one of our elite cow families, the Pocahontas 68M family. Her Accelerator daughter, 163X, is sending her third bull to our annual bull sale, and with other sons working in the herds of Stolson Farms in Hodgeville, SK and Roger Schroeder in Baldwin, ND. We have four full sisters sired by Accelerator that are all really good and very similar in type. They are a result of flushing IPU Pocahontas 68M to Accelerator. They’re high producing mothers that have raised some of our high dollar cattle. 5D himself is very smooth and loose made, deep bodied and attractive. He is sired by the $87,000 LFE Vegas bull ourselves and Oberles purchased as the high selling red bull at Lewis Farms 2015 Bull Sale and he goes back to the very productive Lewis Amber cow family. We think this young herdbull 5D has a lot of potential and will be easy to find sale day.

She has a Horizon daughter at Erixon Simmentals that was purchased as one of our feature females at Simmsational 2015. 217X also produced one of our favorite cows here at the ranch, 154Z, who is the mother of Lot 8. Lot 6 is a full brother by blood to Lot 1, both sired by Vegas and out of full sisters. He will sire the right kind of calves in kind, type and quality. What a set of steers he would sire!

His full brother sold to Sonny Berndt from Rugby, ND in last year’s sale and he was identical to 61D. Both are dark red, soggy, full of meat and muscle, very loose made and are homo polled. We think this Red Zone son has a lot of potential – great sire, great mother, great bull.

IPU REDNECK 71D

We really like this Redneck son. He’s thick, smooth made, has lots of quarter and rib. Again his sire is the $50,000 red El Tigre son, Redneck, that was our high selling bull in 2015. We bred a few cows to him and are very happy with his progeny as can be seen by this bull. We were down at Mandan Lake Simmental Ranch, the Staigles, in October and were very impressed by the Redneck calves. He’s doing quite a job for them. The dam of 71D is a beautifully uddered Liner 56U daughter that raised one of our high selling bulls in last year’s sale that sold to the Schweitzers at Decker, MB. 71D is very well balanced, he’s stout, has lots of top and muscle and is very stylish. We will have homo test results back by sale day.

IPU RED EL TIGRE 114D

A feature red, powerful, El Tigre son that we are really high on. He reminds us so much of El Tigre himself when we purchased him from McMillen Ranches, only this guy is in a red package. His mother is a young, good uddered Lotto daughter going back to our old matron black cow family, 304Y. She was our original flush cow and we had many great daughters of hers head our black program. We always said it wouldn’t have mattered what she was -- red, fullblood, black, white – she was just a good cow. We really love this 114D. He’s so thick and soggy, has a great haircoat, lots of testicles, big butted, and so loose made just like El Tigre was. This is a bull we plan to draw semen on after the sale and use in our own program. He’s a non diluter being off two black parents and homo polled. He has herd bull written all over him.

This really is one of the good bulls in the sale. We really like him a lot. He is mothered by a really good uddered S-Paw Turbo Charged cow going back to Bodybuilder. We have a really good Code Red first calf heifer in our herd off of 287Z that looks just like mom. She was the spare red heifer for this past Simmsational sale so that’s what we think of her. 149D is really a loose made, thick, stout made bull with lots of hair and eye appeal. We will have his polled test back by sale day. He is definitely one of the feature red bulls in the sale this year and we think he has a bright future.

We believe he’d really sire a group of great feeder calves, the kind the order buyers want, the feedlots like to feed, and they’d have the carcass in them the slaughter plants are looking for.

We believe a great loss to the Simmental industry, as he was one of the best bulls we had ever produced and he had a lot to offer. 74C’s and 157D’s mother is a beautifully uddered Revolution cow going back to our Pocahontas 105L cow family. 105L is sixteen years old now and is still going strong. She is at Bow Valley Genetics currently, still producing some embryos for us. 225X is in our flush program also and soon will be getting flushed to Red Zone 16A. She has three daughters in our herd that are awesome and we plan to get many more. 157D is dark red, long and smooth, big butted and stylish. He had an awesome 205 day adjusted weaning weight of 891lbs. He would sire some exceptional replacement heifers and powerful bull and steer calves. Hetero polled.

Reference Sire

MRL EL TIGRE 52Z

El Tigre is one of greatest herdsires to ever walk our pasture. He has done so much for our program, both males and females. We’ve never used a black bull that puts muscle, mass and rear quarter in his progeny like he does. His sons are so consistent in type and kind. His daughters are making really nice young cows as we have two and three year olds calving out this year. They have lots of capacity, natural thickness and real good udders. He’s homo polled and hetero black so we’ve been able to put some of his genetics into our red program. In our 2017 sale a lot of our feature bulls are sired by El Tigre, both blacks and reds. We had the misfortune of losing El Tigre this summer with a back injury. We have a limited amount of semen left on him, so we will continue his legacy through A.I. Thanks for the great job El Tigre!

This El Tigre son comes out of the great Pashmenia 403P cow family, a cow that was one of the best producing black cows we ever owned. She was a black baldy and part Fleckvieh. Now her daughter, Pashmenia 245Z, is taking over as she is a producing machine. Her first offspring was a full sister to 21D and she sold through this very sale as our high selling open heifer to Crossroad Farms for $18,000. Her second calf sold again in our bull sale last year, a black Horizon daughter, to Bert’s NR Simmentals, Haywood, MB for $12,000 and now she has this outstanding El Tigre son in this year’s sale. He’s a powerful bull with an actual weaning weight of 1010lbs, a moderate 96lb birth weight, is full of meat and muscle, has tons of rib, a great temperament, huge testicles and is hetero black and homo polled. He’ll be easy to find sale day.

In last year’s heifer portion of the bull sale we sold a black baldy Cobra daughter to young Garren Skeels of Anchor D Simmentals. Garren is an outstanding young man and hopefully the Pashmenia daughter will produce many good progeny for him as that cow family has produced for us. 57D is really stout made, has lots of hair, is long and big butted, just a really good bull. I can only imagine the set of steers this bull would produce, he will add pounds to the calf crop. He has an adjusted 205 day weight of 887lbs and ranked 4th out of his 68 contemporaries.

He is mothered by a black blaze face TNT Tanker female that is a tank, good uddered, big volumed and is out of a black blaze face half Fleck cow.

He was one of my personal favorite bulls. His full brother this year, 112D, was our heaviest weaning bull at 1020lbs and had an adjusted 205 day weight of 954lbs, the #1 ranked bull. He’s as thick as they come, huge big quarter, big topped, long, great haircoat, lots of testicle and has a great disposition.

A moderate framed, super stout Captain Black son out of Maple Lake Miss Me 2002. This beautiful 786T daughter is the start of a new cow family here at LaBatte Simmentals. She’s what we think is the ultimate type cow, moderate, big bodied, angular, feminine, super fronted and good uddered. She’s the kind that when you’re on a pasture tour you ask “Who’s that cow?” And she’s not only good to look at, she’s a producer too. Her first calf, a High Voltage daughter, sold in our 2015 sale as our second high selling heifer at $15,250 to Rust Mountain View in ND. She had a baldy bull in last year’s sale selling to Todd Knupp at Weyburn. SK and this year has this outstanding Captain Black son in the sale. We feel this is one of the real feature bulls in the sale. He’s moderate, thick, thick, with so much hip in him, lots of middle, loose made, great haired and attractive. He’s been one of the favorites since he was a baby. He’s homo polled and homo black by parentage.

In our program the Liner 56U and Lotto udders are second to none and with Captain Black’s mom’s udder this bull should really correct udders. They’d have nice small teats, level udders and milk very well. This deep bodied, good haired Captain Black son had an actual weaning weight of 950lbs and an adjusted 205 day weight of 971lbs where he indexed 9th out of 68 contemporaries. He DNA tested homo polled and homo black.

This homo polled and homo black Soda Pop son is a bull we really like. He’s mothered by an Upgrade daughter we purchased at the National Trust sale in Brandon, MB as a calf. We always really liked the Carli 14N cow family at Mar Mac and finally got a chance to buy a granddaughter of hers as they don’t offer many progeny off that cow family. 55A has turned out just as we expected. She has a great udder, is very feminine, fertile and deep bodied. In last year’s sale her first calf, a Cobra son, sold to Brian & Paige Uran of Ross, ND for $13,000. He also was an excellent bull. You evaluate this bull sale day as I think he has a lot of potential being from a really good young cow. He’s homo–homo, thick butted, deep bodied and has a good haircoat. He’s a herdbull!

This February, blaze face Muirheads Broker son has been one of our favorites since spring. He’s always had lots of top and butt in him. He has a great haircoat, is deep ribbed, has loads of capacity and style to burn. What a set of replacement heifers and bulls or steers he would sire. 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 gain-ability and the carcass value they’re looking for. And the baldy replacement females definitely bring a premium.

306 487-2624 cell: 306 487-7662 All of us at Meadow Acres are happy to welcome you to this year’s bull sale! This is our fourth offering to the sale and we would like to thank all the buyers and bidders from our past sales for your support and commitment to making this sale a priority on your search for high quality genetics. Without you none of this would be possible! We are honoured to be a part of this bull sale that Barry has built over the last 37 years to be a trusted source for high quality Simmental genetics. Our operations align well to bring you genetics that are from the same base to promote consistency and predictability amongst all the bulls in the offering. We are both family farm operations that have a huge passion for the cattle business and agriculture in general. We continue to bring to you genetics that include a mix of fresh up and coming with proven ones as well. This year we are very pleased to offer some new bulls that we raised here at Meadow Acres and sold through this very sale. We want to thank our customers that worked with us to utilize these genetics in our own herd and we are excited to showcase what these bulls have gone on to produce! We continue to invest heavily in our herd sires to bring to you the best possible genetics available in the Simmental Industry. Our bulls are all semen tested and guaranteed, as well as colour and polled tested prior to sale day. The bulls are on a full herd health program that starts at birth and continues up to sale time. We have had great success with our TMR ration that these bulls are on. It is high roughage based to promote soundness and longevity. It is always the true test to your nutrition program when following up with customers and hearing that they are extremely satisfied with how the bulls held their condition and are not melting away. We will, as always, offer delivery in most cases right to your yard. For customers in the United States we will complete all health paperwork required for export and make arrangements accordingly on delivery. We welcome you at any time to come to the farm and go through the bulls at home in their own everyday environment and have the ability to see the mothers. It’s always a challenge to get away from home, we understand that, so we are also happy to talk with you and determine the bulls that would fit your specific needs. We also have videos available on all sale bulls on our website www.meadowacresfarms.com and are excited to once again have our sale being broadcast live on www.dlms.ca. We invite you to join us in Moose Jaw Thursday evening for some hospitality at the Heritage Inn as well as lunch on Friday prior to sale time. We look forward to catching up with you in Moose Jaw on March 3rd! “The Fornwalds”

Homo Polled/Hetero Black. Here is a really unique opportunity to capitalize on some of the most elite genetics in the Simmental breed! 266C is a fall born bull so he offers a bit more maturity, size and ability to cover more cows. He is an extremely well put together individual. He is long bodied, strong topped and deep made. 266C has had that herd bull presence about him, since he was a young calf. He is phenotypically hard to fault and has a pedigree that is as well. He is sired by the legendary SVS Captain Morgan and his dam is a Black Joker daughter with Fleck influence. 403P has been an outstanding producer throughout her lifetime and still going strong. She is a cow we are very fortunate to have and have utilized her as a cornerstone female in progressing our herd into the future. We have four heifers from this flush as well as the next bull in the offering. This bull has the ability to be a great building block in any program, just like both his sire and dam.

We are extremely pleased with how “Mafia” has produced for us and we will be using him again this breeding season. This Riddler bull has extremely impressive growth numbers for weaning and yearling weight. This guy was an ET calf that started out at just 65 pounds and has grown into very good bull.

Homo polled/Hetero Black. 114D is another embryo bull off of the 76T cow. He is long bodied, strong topped and deep. This bull is good footed and has a moderate birth weight.

Tests pending. This bull was one that has always caught people’s attention even from a very young age. He is thick, wide, deep and soggy, and a bull that is very clean in his lines and attractive. His EPD profile is above breed averages in all categories and his dam is a Red Tanker daughter out of the X-T Raven cow, who is the dam of a number of females working in our herd. This bull is a bit of a different twist on a lot of today’s black pedigrees; no 680S or Broker here. I missed sending the hair in for polled and colour testing on this guy but it will be completed by sale time.

Homo Polled/Hetero Black. Our lead off “Mafia” bull is definitely the real deal. He is thick, wide, deep and soft made. A bull that moves out well for his amount of muscle and is long bodied and strong topped. This bull has had a real herd bull look to him since he was a young calf. His dam is an extremely hard working Shear Force daughter that raised our high selling bull last year, MAF Lampman 1C who sold to Ferme LaBlond in Quebec. She is a moderate framed cow with a very good udder and she does a great job on every calf. The combination of power and growth from “Mafia” and highly maternal attributes of Shear Force come together for an excellent set of EPDs across the board and a bull that has so much to offer any operation.

Homo Polled/Hetero Black. Here is a real power bull in the offering. 143D is very thick, wide topped and has tons of rib blended into an overall smooth made design. He has some birth weight behind him, but is a bull that has consistently pushed down the scales and has explosive weaning and yearling growth numbers. He is out of a beautiful female that we had the misfortune of losing this winter. She was very nice uddered and did a great job on this guy. 143D will be a bull that you can use to add pounds and style to your calf crop.

Polled/Homo Black. We start the Cobra section with this powerful son. Cobra has been a mainstay for us in the heifer pen and he has really just clicked for us in our herd. The calves have a lot of growth to them and are highly marketable. 93D follows this type very well, he was born to a first calving El Tigre daughter that did a very good job raising him. We have many members of the Lady cow family here and they are highly productive. This Cobra son reminds me a lot of his sire, he is thick, deep and very sound. He is strong topped and has a bit of extra extension through his front end that gives him a real neat look. He has a great weaning weight EPD and he should be a bull that calves well and produces calves that really have grow to them.

Homo Polled/Hetero Black. Another Cobra son that again follows suit with what we expect. He was born at a nice size of 81lbs and has grown and matured into a herd bull. His dam is a good uddered solid black Broker daughter that has done what we hope all our first calvers can do -- calve easy, breed back early and raise a sale bull.

Homo Polled/Double Black. 134D has been one that you knew from the start would be a part of this sale. He is very well made, deep bodied, lots of guts and has lots of eye appeal. I think there is a lot of really good things about this Cobra/Lotto cross. It is a very nice combination of high maternal strengths to offer someone looking to keep replacement females.

Homo Polled/Hetero Black. Here is a really neat made Vision son that was purchased in dam as one of the high selling bred heifers of Ashworth’s. He is moderate framed and full of meat and guts! He is as deep a bodied bull as you will find, is very smooth made and phenotypically sound with lots of “pop” to his hind quarter. Another bull that has always had that herd bull look and presence to him. His dam is a black Red Mountain with a perfect udder and it is obvious the great job she did on her first calf! 101D has a really nice set of EPDs, maintaining above average in both calving and growth areas. A bull that deserves serious consideration!

Homo Polled/Homo Black. This Lotto son is arguably the best son we have raised off of our senior walking herd sire! 192D is out of a Poker Face cow that is hard to fault. She has a great udder and is very attractive. We flushed her as a two-year old and had a nice set of Combustible progeny. 192D pulls together into an extremely complete package; thick, wide topped, deep with lots of middle to him and long bodied. A favorite to many visitors of the bull pen. The Lotto progeny have been outstanding maternally and this bull comes with a 31.3 milk number putting the icing on the cake!

Homo Polled. Our only red fall bull in the offering and a bull that is sure to get attention sale day! 268C is long spined, big middled, with lots of muscle and testicles. This bull is off of a Stout daughter that is nice uddered and did a great job on this guy! He is very clean in his lines and structurally very correct. These fall bulls definitely serve a purpose to assist in the ability to breed more cows than a yearling and hold condition with their bit of extra age and maturity.

Scurred. 138D is again an easy keeping Horizon son. He is soft made with tons of middle and is moderate framed. His dam is a Pocahontas 52N daughter and a favorite around here. We have had great success with this cross and have a full sister retained in our herd and sold a full sister to Double Bar D, SK.

Scurred. Another descendant of the Pocahontas 105L, the Horizon cross on this cow has worked extremely well. Two full brothers have sold to Glen & Melinda Aldentaler, South Dakota and Kurtis Bartlett, SK.

Polled. 150D is one of the elite Horizon sons that we have raised. This guy is extremely complete made, as stout and deep as they come! He really needs to be appreciated for how smooth and clean in his lines he is. His dam is a young Red Force cow that did a great job on this guy. She is a part of the legendary Pocahontas 52N cow family so we would not expect any less. Moderate framed, real tanky and a great cow family that backs him, this guy deserves some serious consideration.

The Revolution daughters are a very productive group, nice uddered and big bodied cows.

We have some full sisters to this guy in the replacement pen and they are extremely impressive! A bull that should be seriously considered if you are looking to keep replacement females. His dam is our foundation female that has never missed for us and is a beautiful cow that is still going strong and bred again for the fall of this year after flushing her for the last year. We sold a black full sister to this guy to Leewood Ranch and have another that has a perfect udder.

LaBatte Simmental will be consigning 16 open replacement heifers in this year’s sale, including 8 black and 8 red heifers. This is a really nice even group of heifers and they are sired by some of the breeds top sires – El Tigre, Soda Pop, Vegas, Dillinger, Red Zone and Prime Beef. We didn’t get a lot of pictures of the heifers this year because of the extreme cold weather when Wilf was here taking pictures. If you have any questions about these heifers before the sale, be sure to give us a call and we will be glad to go over them with you. Or, better yet, come and have a look at the farm before the sale. We would be glad to show you them and their brothers in the bull pen.

A feature El Tigre heifer of Wade’s. This is really an outstanding heifer sired by the great El Tigre and mothered by a young, productive Liner 56U daughter. One thing for sure, she will have an excellent udder as 159A’s udder is super and the grandmother, CCC Tamale 1U, has the ultimate udder, maybe as close to perfect as you can get. And then add El Tigre in there and it doesn’t get any better. The 87D heifer is an exceptional heifer with her depth of body, muscle, broodiness and has mother cow written all over her.

She did a really good job on her first calf who is sired by TSZ Apollo 508Y, a Hooks Shear Force son. We saw pictures of Apollo and heard a lot of good things about his mother, a tanky Black Joker cow, so we talked Travis Herter into selling us a few straws. He’s in the top 3% of the breed for calving ease so we thought we’d try something a little different on a few heifers. 14D is very feminine, moderate framed, has lots of volume, a great haircoat and we think will make a great young cow.

We shouldn’t be selling these El Tigre daughters as they’re going to make great young cows. El Tigre has really enhanced our black program. His bulls are full of meat and muscle and his daughters are easy fleshing, deep ribbed and good uddered.

Geraldine has been a standout heifer right from spring. She is sired by the $32,000 IPU Dillinger 80B, who was a Bootlegger son out of the Pocahontas 2Y cow. He sold to Kinn Simmentals of Turtle Lake, ND in our 2015 bull sale. We collected a little semen off him and bred a handful of heifers to him and, as expected, he really calved well. This heifer is really good, pear shaped, thick and made nice through her head and neck and is really broody. We think she is definitely a sale feature.

As we said earlier, when Wilf was here taking pictures it was really cold and miserable so we didn’t get as many pictures taken as we would have liked to, especially of these red heifers. The mother of Ms. Vegas 123D raised a maternal sister that sold to CD Land & Cattle, Doug Domolewski, AB in last year’s sale and the year before a son sold to Clifford Pukas at Wynyard, SK. This Vegas female is cherry dark red, very feminine made and will be a producer.

Finishing off the heifer division of the sale with a middle of February red baldy El Tigre heifer. Her mother is a good High Tide cow we purchased out of the Black Diamond dispersal as one of the high sellers. We have two of her daughters in our herd including a full sister to 169D. This heifer is solid dark red with only a white blaze on her head. She could raise some of the baldy bulls that are so in demand today.
