“Bedazzle [ biˈdazəl ]- greatly impress (someone) with brilliance or skill.” This definition is why we chose Bedazzle’s name from day one. This is the kind of heifer we strive to breed here at RPCC, long spined, lots of muscle shape, beautiful rib design, sound, high performance with that extra punch of style. Sired by Broker, the hottest bull in the industry right now. Her dam is a wonderful Joker daughter that goes back to our foundation Black Raven cow family. We are very proud of this one!

Not very often do we sell anything that is a descendant of my favourite cow, “RPCC Lady in Red”, but here she is! Her dam, Yours Truly, is a beautiful Slugger daughter, had a very successful show career as a calf and again as a yearling. Crossing Yours Truly and Broker made a sweet female that has straight lines, is smooth made, has a rocket front, and is a flashy black baldy that is destined for great things.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE • • • •
In order to participate in the online auction you will need to pre-register and obtain a buyer number. To do this, go to the LiveAuctions website, www.liveauctions.tv and select River Point Cattle Co. Internet Sale. After logging, in the buyer registration form should pop up automatically. If it doesn’t there is a link you can select that says “register for a buyer number’. This form requires you to fill out your bank name, city, state (province), phone number and a contact. You may register to bid after the sale opens, but please remember that authorization to bid is not instantaneous. We recommend that your register for a buyer number at least the day before the closing of the sale. If you do not feel comfortable bidding online, please feel free to contact anyone at the front of the sale catalogue and bidding can be done directly through a person.
HOW THE AUCTION WORKS • • • •
Once you have a username and have received a buyer number then you are ready to bid. You will see a screen that is unique to your user ID. There will be a list containing the sale lots. If you click on a lot, the video clip or photo will be displayed to the right. The next bid, current price, proxy bid and manual bid buttons will be displayed below the video area. This page will react to your bids by stating, “you are in” or “you are out”. No one else will be able to see your bid - that data is not accessible to the public. Each time you login, the auction screen will display your personal bidding information. Your auction screen is unique and private - displaying your activity to only you. Remember that you must have the lot that you are bidding on selected. This is where it tells you if you are in or out. It is here where you can also see your proxy bid settings (as applicable).
WHAT IS A PROXY BID? With a proxy bid you can enter your maximum bid and then sit back and watch. When you enter a proxy bid amount the LiveAuctions system automatically bids on your behalf up to your maximum bid. If the lot closes out for less than your maximum, that’s all you pay. This means that you don’t have to keep coming back to re-bid every time another bid is placed. This makes it more convenient and less time consuming. It can also greatly assist those breeders that can’t be near a computer or are busy with other duties at the time of final bidding and closeout. Your maximum amount is kept confidential from other bidder and the seller. Even though you can see this amount on your screen no one else can. The LiveAuctions system compares your bid to those of the other registered bidders and the system automatically places bids on your behalf, using only as much of your bid as is necessary to maintain your high bid position. The system will only bid up to your maximum amount necessary to maintain you as the high bidder. If another bidder had a higher maximum you’ll be outbid and the system will tell you that “YOU’RE OUT”. But if no other bidder has a higher maximum you win the final bid.
THE FINAL CLOSE OUT BIDDING PROCESS When the bidding starts the bidding clock will run for a pre announced time (usually 30-45 seconds) or until there is a bid at which time the clock will rewind to its original 30 or 45 seconds. For example: if the bidding clock gets down to 1 second remaining then a higher bid is submitted, the clock will then restart. The rewind process will continue with each bid received until the allotted time elapses without a bid. Then the lot will be considered sold. Each year we receive a few calls after the sale from breeders who were interested in bidding on an animal, but failed to watch the bidding clock and let the bidding time expire. So if you are interested in a particular animal be sure to submit your bid while there is still time on the clock. This is where using the proxy bid can come in handy - ensuring you do not miss a bid! The final sale close out will begin 7:00 pm on Sunday October 5, 2014. We will have a pre posted sale order that we will follow for the close out. At that time will be starting with the close out for the first lot on the sale order. At this time you may only bid on this lot, their video will be displayed as well as the clock counting down. There will also be a LiveAutions tech announcing during this time what price we are at and the amount of time left on the clock ( this information is also visible on your screen at this time). Once that lot has sold, we will move on to the next lot and so on until all the lots have been closed one at a time. If you have any questions feel free to contact any of the LiveAuctions staff and that would be happy to assist you. Jessy Milne-Smith (613) 229-1073
