Welcome to our 9th annual Bull Sale. Our last few Bull Sales have seen our sales barn lled to capacity. Although Bull Sale time is busy around here, I really enjoy spending time with potential customers and good friends. I hope that you’ll come for a pre-sale ranch visit as I’d like to show you the cattle. Thank you to our repeat buyers for your con dence in our program. I appreciate that you share my belief in the type of cattle the industry needs to move forward pro tably. Raising elite seed stock is both a passion and a business around here. Your success is my success. The Spring Creek Ranch is a century family farm. I bought my rst Simmental in 1973 and the Angus division was added in 2002. I have always known the type of cattle I wanted to raise. The strength of my operation is in the cow herd. The top end of our heifers is always kept for replacements, allowing me to speed up genetic improvement. The bottom sides of the pedigrees are ‘Springcreek’ breeding. Since its inception, Spring Creek Simmentals and Red Rose Angus has been a hands-on operation; I breed, feed, calve and do the culling. I would be glad to help you select the bulls that will enhance both your program and your bottom line, and I will stand behind them. My handshake is my word. Our Red Angus herd was purchased by Lazy Creek Farm, Michael, Alyssa and Jon-WilliamVerstegen of Caron, SK. They will continue to market their Red Angus Bulls through our sale. We are really happy to see our red cows go to such a good home. They are young and passionate about the purebred business, just exactly what our industry needs. They also have a Simmental herd and will market those bulls through the South-Sask. Simmental Bull and Female Sale held March 12th in Moose Jaw. Yet while we obviously have strong roots in the past, we continue to grow for the future. I wish to thank Craig Davidson, Black Sand Cattle Company, for his con dence in my program. He has brought an exceptional group of bulls this year, including many sons of ‘Lotto’, the high selling bull in our 2012 sale. We share common ideologies and a desire to bring forth complete bulls: bulls that are thick muscled and deep-bodied, attractive and well-balanced, with good dispositions and large testicles, but with reasonable birth weights. We believe that in order to judge a bull you must see his dam. I am proud that our ‘In Pursuit of Perfection’ catalogue contains industry leading information: pictures of all bulls, their dams and sires, polled and coat color status, as well as individual performance EPDs and pedigrees. We have the genetics you need to complement your herd. Select with con dence, then take advantage of our unique Customer Care Programs, including ourWinter Feeding Program, our Live Long BullWarranty, and ourVolume Incentive “Go big and go home happy” Program. It’s all here. On a more personal note, I would like to conclude with thanks to AllanWeslowski, who has been with us for about twenty- ve years, and who is a valuable part of our operation. Allan is hardworking, reliable, and trustworthy, and his help here at Spring Creek is very much appreciated, more so than ever this year as it has been just Allan and I to get everything done. My mother Frances turned 94 in December. Mom has always been a valuable part of day-to-day life here on the ranch. It might be you’re here for Grandma’s famous cookies, but we hope it’s for the bulls! For all that she has done over the years our family sincerely thanks her. Thanks also to Sharon for all her inputs; as everyone knows, it takes a family effort to put on a sale. The cattle markets are nally turning strongly upward and with the national herd size at 1950 levels, let’s make sure we have the genetics to take full advantage of these strong markets. With over 130 bulls in our March 6th sale, we are con dent that we have those genetics for your program. We are, as always – In Pursuit of Perfection! Brian McCarthy

Welcome to the “In Pursuit of Perfection” Annual Bull Sale. It seems as if it was only yesterday that we were getting the bulls ready for the 2013 sale. As they say “You must be having fun if time is ying by”. Well I would say if you are doing something you enjoy and having fun, then success will follow. Really our success is our customer’s success with the product that we produce to go on and produce quality cattle that either advance herds or demand top dollar when offspring are sold. We are in the business of raising bulls, and with that our focus has been on our female base that can get that done. Extensive embryo work over the past few years has allowed us to replicate those traits in volume and establish a herd with consistency and quality. Our offering along with Spring Creek is as good and consistent as any you will nd and we feel there are truckloads of bulls that will appeal to the astute cattleman. Within our bulls there is a heavy in uence from Spring Creek Lotto 52Y that we acquired with Labatte Simmentals two years ago. He has bred as true as any sire we have ever used and are proud to offer his offspring, in volume. We feel he will be a sire that will be used for years as his females rise to the top with the build and structure that they possess that is right for the times in the cattle business. Make sure to review our “Customer Care Programs” as they are designed by cattlemen for cattlemen. Feedback has been excellent and we enjoy seeing these bulls through to herd sires. TheWinter Feeding program is in its second year and it is rewarding to see these bulls develop into mature animals all while allowing our customers to have the extra year of use. Mom and Dad are still carrying the heavy load of day to day work at the farm and their excitement of seeing the baby calves born each spring to the bulls developing into masculinity or females raised from a calf to having their rst calf still exist which is rewarding for me. It takes a little longer to get the work done, but it gets done right, and we thank them for that! Please call any time (Craig – 204-761-5991) (Ralph/Wendy – 204-722-2348) or stop by to view the bulls pre sale so we can discuss your herd bull requirements.

Box 1821 - Carstairs, AB - T0M 0N0 p. 403.940.3334 f. 403.940.4016 www.bohrson.com bohrsonmarketing@gmail.com From the desk at T Bar... Starting in the second week of February and running throughout the largest part of April, there is virtually a bull sale every day...on some days two, three, four and on several Saturdays in March...over a dozen. No doubt bull buyers have veritable choices in filling their herd bull batteries for the breeding season. This raises the question ...what makes “In Pursuit of Perfection” a preferred ultimate bull buying destination? The question is easily answered....experience and quality, combined with customer care and maintenance! Brian McCarthy has over four decades of experience breeding and producing profit earning seed stock...this great group selling did not come by chance. Over the forty years, in addition to being an astute breeder, he has also been a mentor to young people starting or involved in the industry. Craig Davidson would be a prime example of this. The Black Sands program has similar goals and principals to those of the Spring Creek program. Craig’s attention to detail and passion to produce only the very best seedstock further fuels the “Pursuit of Perfection” offering. The quality factor of the bulls selling is unquestionable...deep bodied, heavy muscled bulls, with lots of testicle, hair and great temperament. In addition to the performance factor, they are complimented by useable no-nonsense birth weights and high maternal traits...remember a bull is only as good as his mother! The customer care and maintenance is the best offered by any sale in North America. Unlike many others, these breeders want you to get the “best bang-for-your-buck” as they realized through experience, that quality bulls are a major investment and a necessity in moving a cow herd or program forward. Study the customer care and bull warranty program, plan to participate, as they are designed to assist both the purchaser and seller....then “Go big and go home happy!” In this new exciting era of the beef industry, maternal will be a watchword for all! To restock the dwindling North American cow herd (which will take over a decade), retaining females will be forefront and our neighbors to the south will source highly maternal young breeding stock in Canada...giving us replacement pressures as well as premiums. The Simmental – Angus combination is unquestionably the best F-1 female in the pasture and market place; the bulls selling in “Pursuit of Perfection”, were built on maternal strength. Plan to be at Spring Creek for a great group of bulls backed by the best customer service 403-363-9973 available in the industry. If we, at T Bar C, may be of assistance, prior to or sale day, do not hesitate to give Chris, Ted or myself a call...we will be pleased to help you with your requirements. See you sale day!

In P ursuit of Perfection Customer Care P rograms IPOP OP (In Pursuit of Perfection) Bu B Bullll Sale Customer Care Winter Feeding Program

The objective of this program is to work with our customers to foster the yearling bull through the most critical year of his life -- the first winter after

his inaugural breeding season. In the case of our sale, most of these bulls are yearling bulls. The challenge for many producers, but not all, is where do you put them? They are usually a nuisance and if you put them with the mature bulls they never do as well. Tying up a pen or field to feed just a few animals becomes a challenge as well. The program is built on a sliding scale which works off the purchase price of the bull or bull average (multiple bulls). IPOP Bull Sale will charge the customer the amount left owing on the feeding program in that purchase bracket. If a purchase price is between a trigger point, it will be rounded down. Based on industry feedback the wintering of a yearling bull will be $700 +/- per head. The cost for the feeding program will be charged on delivery of the bull in the fall, based on the range you fall into for that bull or group of bulls, or no charge at all! IPOP Bull Sale will deal with the feeding co-operator on complete feeding program costing. The sign up for this program will be on sale day or shortly after the spring IPOP Bull Sale to allow time to coordinate the winter program. If the customer does not wish to utilize this support tool then there will be no credit given for feeding their own bulls. The Wintering Program will start in mid October and run to April 1st. If additional time is required by the customer on either side of this program (fall or extended spring) it will be at the customer’s expense and at the convenience of the feeding cooperator. All bull deliveries in the fall will be cordinated into a 3-4 day window. Scale: Purchase price (net price after volume incentives and repeat customer discounts) of bull (or average of bulls) and the corresponding feeding cost per bull: $2500-$3000 - . $600 winter feeding cost $3500 - .......... $500 winter feeding cost $4000 - ......... $400 winter feeding cost $4500 - ......... $300 winter feeding cost $5000 - ......... $200 winter feeding cost $5500 - ......... $100 winter feeding cost $6000 and above – winter feeding cost included in the purchase price of the bull

IPOP Bull Sale “Live Long Bull Warranty”

The goal of this program is again to work with our customers in sharing the risk on bulls that will not work based on factors out of their control. We also want to take more responsibility in seeing a bull through to maturity and ensuring things like feet and legs stand up. A bull purchase is a major investment not just for the future of your herd but in the expectation of a longer productive life of the animal. We also assume there is risk past year one, even though most bulls are only insured in their first year of service. We want to work with our customers through to maturity. The time your bull spends in the Winter Feeding Program will be included in this warranty. If the IPOP Bull Sale “Live Long Bull Warranty” is initiated, it will be paid out in the form of a credit towards the purchase of a bull in the subsequent year’s sale. Purchaser must notify Spring Creek Simmentals, (306) 435-3590 or Black Sand Cattle Co., (204) 761-5991 immediately of any problems with or death of a purchased bull(s). Purchaser must employ a licensed veterinarian to treat , diagnose and/or fill out a vet form. If the animal dies, a postmortem may be required. Injury or death due to malicious, wilful or intentional acts or mistreatment by the purchaser or his employees is a fraudulent claim. In the event of mortality of a purchase bull, the seller’s credit responsibility will be limited to $20,000.00/ bull or the purchase price if less. Buyers are responsible for their own mortality insurance on individual purchase prices over $20,000.00. Our goal is to ensure customer satisfaction and to help protect your investment through to maturity. We are your partner in business!

‘Olympian’ is one of a kind! He weaned at 1030 lbs., a #1 adjusted ranking, and he may be the heaviest bull I have ever raised. He has had the herd bull look about him since a very young age. His basket is full of goodies… homo polled and black, blaze-faced, very thick, big testicles, good disposition and maybe best of all, out of a super baldy cow. She was the high seller in our 40th Anniversary Sale, selling to Rancier Farms, Cedar Creek Simmentals and Canadian Donors. Retaining 100 doses of ‘in herd use’ semen.

MBJ 903A had a very reasonable birth weight and has really come along through weaning and yearling with adjusted weights near 900 and 1500 lbs. I feel he will add some power and some calving ease.

Her offspring have lots of growth and a lot of rib shape to go with it. Maternal brothers sold last year to Bonchuks, Clear Water Simmental and Prairie livestock.

We have been impressed with what Wallbanger has done for us including the beautiful females we have calved out this spring. Udder quality is tremendous. 18A is a heavy muscled, big nutted herd bull anyone would be happy to own. We flushed his dam this past spring as she is a model cow.

His pedigree is very similar to ‘Lotto’. I can’t say enough about the ‘Crosbys’ around here and this guy will make some black ones. His dam now resides at Boundary Ranch, being a high seller in our recent sale. Owned jointly with Sun Rise Simmentals.

Here is an opportunity to buy a two year old bull. Due to shortage of time and labour, I am using a picture of him as a yearling.

We could not get a semen sample from this bull as a yearling so we bred him to some cows and tested him again in the fall which he passed fine. If you are looking for a two year old that can cover cows and has power to burn, Super Bee will fit the bill.

Similar to 32Z, 60Z refused to give us any sample to test as a yearling. He as well, bred cows and tested in the fall. He is stout made and backed by a stacked pedigree. He will cover cows and has the performance to make their calves grow!

He is the first calf out of a ‘MYTTY IN FOCUS’ X ‘FINAL ANSWER’ dam and I would say she is off to a good start. His sire is a home-raised bull that may be one of the easiest keeping animals to ever walk our farm. Take note of ‘5A’s’ excellent rib shape and volume.
