In Pursuit Of Perfection Simmental & Angus Bull Sale

Page 1


WelcomeSome January nights when it’s -40 and my knee is “acting up” again I go out to the calving barn and remember why I’m in this business. To put it quite simply: I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Those of you who love cattle the way I do know what I mean. Our business is coming to a decade of unequalled prosperity. Like you, I look forward with anticipation to this record-setting cycle, and after the dark decade of BSE it is well deserved. This is an exciting time to be in the beef industry as we witness 1950 numbers, a growing world population, a greater demand for beef, a declining number of beef producers, and all-time high prices. The future has never looked brighter, and it will be the progressive cattleman like yourself who will sit in and strengthen his program which will result in long term financial gain. Now is the time to buy the best bulls you can find. Remember: good cattle make you money and poor cattle cost you money. This cycle of historic prosperity will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to put your herd in a position to be profitable well into the future. This is our time, and I believe that Spring Creek and Black Sand genetics are right for the times and as leading edge as you will find. Here at Spring Creek I’ve been working at genetic improvement for over 40 years.The strength of my operation is in the cow herd. I’ve always known the type of cattle I’ve wanted to raise. Mine has been a very hands-on operation: I breed, feed, calve, and do the culling. Although I am always in pursuit of perfection, I welcome you to step right in at the top of my program and choose exclusive Spring Creek genetics from proven cow families. Congratulations to Craig, whose recent female dispersal will be a sale for the Simmental industry to remember for some time. The volume, udders, feet, disposition and overall attractiveness of the cattle were very much appreciated. Craig and I realize that a bull purchase is a big investment that will impact your herd for years to come. Our bulls are complete bulls: thick muscled and deep bodied, well balanced and eye appealing, vigorous and high performing with large testicles, reasonable birth weights, high weaning weights, and good dispositions. Forty years of careful selection and breeding is paying off in females bred to work, perform and pay their way. When I walk through the bull pen I feel a sense of accomplishment to have built a female base that can produce such a powerful and uniform set of bulls. I am satisfied with how the bulls are developing, and that as a group they represent my specific and exclusive genetics. I invite you to select with confidence. Craig and I encourage you to look at the bulls well before the sale, and we’d be glad to help you find a bull that will enhance your program and your bottom line. We want to continue our partnership with you and invite you to take advantage of our unique Customer Care Programs. People often ask about our family; Sharon and I are very proud of them. Dan and Olga are both Industrial Systems Engineers. Dan has invented his version of the vertical lift pump jack; his new company is called IJack Technologies. At this time Olga’s favorite role is that of Mom toVivian Rose, and they will welcome their second child this summer. Sean and Simina live in Calgary. Sean has a Business Degree, a CFA, and is working on an MBA while working for Enmax. His wife Simina is an associate with Burnet, Duckworth and Palmer LLP. Our daughter Lauren has a shiny new Business Degree from the U of S. She also lives in Calgary where she is an HR Advisor for Trinidad Drilling. My mother Frances continues to be amazingly well for having turned 95 in December. Sharon and I would like to thank everyone who has supported us through the years. This is a great industry and we couldn’t imagine having raised our family anywhere other than here on the ranch, which has been home to the McCarthy family since the 1890’s. Thank you to all the bidders and buyers from past sales for the effort you make each year to attend our sale; it is really appreciated. We hope you will join us sale day for a hot lunch and Grandma’s famous cookies! We are, as always – In Pursuit of Perfection! Brian McCarthy

As sit down to write this, it does finally feel like we are closing the chapter on our purebred operation at BlackSand. There is no doubt we have had that empty feeling the last few weeks with the cows and heifers gone and sure have missed seeing the baby calves born. It is this time of year that was always the most exciting time of the year for us to see the next generation and future of the operation. The flip side to this though is that we have probably never spent more time with our yearling bulls than we have in the last two months. They are a super quite group and there are three or four we could probably saddle and ride around as they are quite as house cats with the extra attention they have received... We would like to extend another big ThankYou to those who showed interest, bid and bought at our dispersal sale in December. We are still digesting and absorbing the day and outcome as it was far beyond expectations. When you lay your hard work and dedication to building a foundation herd on the line, in a take them or leave them setting, it can be humbling when the outcome was what it was. We wish the best for each and every purchase and female moving forward and hope they will bring you the success and gratification they brought us over the years. I apologize up front when I continue to call and check in on how things are going as we are interested in knowing how they are turning out and want to know what that exciting next generation is looking like! We feel our 2014 bull calf crop is as good as we have ever offered and is a true testament to the cow herd as there were very few that didn’t make the cut. This is probably as diversified offering as we have had as well with a larger group of red bulls, a big offering of half bloods and a few top end angus bulls to mould into the industry leading quality of bulls that SpringCreek has always brought forth to make the “In Pursuit of Perfection Bull Sale” a feature event of the spring bull season. It has been said before and we will say once again, as we don’t fully appreciate the breeding potential of a bull until his daughters reach maturity. I think we are approaching that point with “Lotto” as his first daughters are calving out and look to be foundation females moving forward. Our Lotto heifers went across the country to top herds and will leave their mark in the industry. Owning a Lotto son should prove to be wise investment raised by what is now determined as any one of our foundation females sired by MBJ 104S or MBJ 56U. We now fully appreciate these sires’ individual value to the industry as their daughters mature. These Lotto combinations on these females will be dynamic. Our smaller Simmental sire groups are also impressive and we expect them to offer defined value to the cattle industry. We have never raised half blood bulls as strong as our RRAR Upward 35Z sons out of our first calf Simmental heifers. We have maybe never raised a sire group of bulls as strong as this offering. They are truly special and impressive with their birth to yearling growth. Check out RRAR 35Z (CANAN1385926) EPD’s on the CSA website. There may not be a bull with a better set of EPD’s currently. You will not go wrong with having one of these sons in your arsenal. Their paternal sisters sold right at the top with the purebred heifer calves in the dispersal. We are very proud of the three embryos Angus bulls from the heart of the Peak Dot herd. They fit in right at the top of our bull offering, and expect them to make a future impact! We look forward to staying in touch with our livestock producers in these exciting times and the next ten years will see continued advancement to make our protein offer very competitive in a world market. It is great to see the excitement in our cattle business which will hopefully encourage more young people to get involved with new and creative ways to advance the industry! Enjoy today, Pursue tomorrow! Craig Davidson, BlackSand Cattle Company

The In Pursuit Of Perfection Bull Sale continues to be one of the exciting events each and every spring.The Spring Creek & BlackSand programs march to their own drum and produce high quality stock that is well accepted throughout the industry. They don’t chase the new flashy bulls; instead they successfully incorporate select new genetics after methodically doing homework on them and the cow families backing these herd sires. Many of the top commercial cattleman, purebred breeders and semen companies have continually sourced genetics from this sale in prior years, as they are impressed with the shear quality of bulls backed by well established cow families. Spring Creek has been building their program for 40+ years with high performance cattle that are very maternal. The cowherd that backs these bulls are high volume, powerful and sound females that are built to withstand our harsh Canadian winters. Fertility, foot shape and udder quality rank high while they are mated to a deep set of walking herd sires and select AI bulls.The bulls this year are consistent once again in their type and are built for longevity. BlackSand had successfully built one of the very best programs in Canada, which was heavily influenced from SCS lineage. Congrats to the Davidsons on a historic dispersal last year - it was one for the record books. Their years of dedication and hard work were recognized and will continue to make an impact for the successful buyers. These sale bulls will sell with the full IPOP guarantee and are one of their strongest groups to date. Many of the pedigrees represented in the sale are true outcrosses to some of the mainstream bloodlines and still possess predictability and consistency.We encourage you to talk with the McCarthys and Davidsons on the offering to assist you in finding the ideal bull.

In Pursuit of Perfection Customer Care Programs IPOP OP (I (In PPursuit i off Perfection) P f i ) Bull B ll SSale l C Customer Care C Winter Wi Feeding F di Program P

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!

Her influence was surely noticed in the recent New Year’s Resolution Frozen Genetics sale where embryos sold up to $2500. ‘Olympian’ embryos were also features. He is polled and hetero black.

His mother has been a real producer and great milker with strong udder shape. However, she did lose two quarters to mastitis and so she had to raise this calf on two quarters. She is a black blaze cow that is one half Fleckvieh and out of the ‘Line Drive’ son that worked so well for K5 River Ranches. Homozygous polled and homozygous black.

He ranked #1 on his yearling performance in a large contemporary group. His dam is a ‘Liner 56U’ daughter and people who have them say they can’t get enough of them.

Investment is a power bull out of the foundation donor cow, MBJ 73T that sold to Grant Lodge Farms for $10,000. A maternal sister was also one of our high sellers to Graham Kathol for $17,000. He is a full brother to MBJ 155Y who is owned by Cross Road Farms and is the sire of Olympian, Gold Standard and Black Bolt. A unique opportunity to tap into some proven, power genetics with a bit of a twist in a Hetro black package so could take this pedigree into some red offspring. He could be a solid “Investment”.

A true breeder bull in the making, Mindcraft has always been a standout for a mid March calf.

He is in the top 2% of the breed of weaning wt and top 1% of the breed for yearling wt.

We were fortunate to purchase embryos from the “New Year’s Resolution Sale” two years ago from the heart of the Peak Dot Ranch program. These Eliminator bulls are as good as we could make them and have tremendous construction to them. 54B has a super disposition and presence to him that demands your attention. Will go on to be a powerful herdsire.

This is a special angus bull that has gotten better and better as the months pass. His full sister sold in our dispersal to Blairs.Ag for $9000 and was real feature. Unanimous progeny are becoming highly sought after as the right kind for today’s industry. A paternal brother to 26B sold for $54,000 this past spring. Maternally 26B is off a one of the elite cows at Peak Dot.

This bull combines a cool look with a proven pedigree. His grand dam is one of the most proven cows in our herd, and his dam is at the top of the pen in her age group. The ‘Detour’ cows are very good milkers with excellent udder quality.

Another well-balanced bull that combines calving ease and growth. His dam is a herd bull maker. Her son ‘Palermo’ that sold to Semex has done a wonderful job. With ‘Detour’ factored in the pedigree ‘the sky’s the limit’ for this bull.
