WLB bull 223w 416B DILLONS IN TIME HART LADY CONTENDER T227 IPU BLACK LABEL 156S DCR MS 299 DEST L205 Lots 1, 2, & 3 bulls are blood brothers to the high selling bull in last year’s sale that sold to Stoughton Farms, Maidstone, SK. We refer to their dams as “The six flush sisters” since they are all a result of flushing the L205 cow to IPU Black Label which gave us 6 daughters. They will post some of the heaviest WDAs’s in the sale. While we are selling full possession & full semen interest on all of them don’t be surprised if we grab a bit of semen on one of them before the sale. We’ll let you know.

WLB 420A - Full sister to Lot 2 bull. Sold to Shannon Perlot, SK.

Predictability is a profit trait that sorts the great ones from the good ones. While all six L205 flush sisters have that predictability, the dam of Lot 2 and the dam of Stoughton’s bull rise to the top. They are our favorites because of their proven genetic ability to pass their genetic assets as well as “the productive look” on to their offspring. We think this guy is a top end herd builder, a carrier of superior DNA. His first birthday will still be five days away come sale day but we feel he possesses the masculinity and maturity necessary to convince you you are indeed getting a very superior individual.

WLB 417Z - blood brother to lots 1, 2, & 3 This performance bull sold in 2013, to Glen Alendtaler, SD

Since we don’t have Good Time any more it was very tempting to hang on to one of his sons. This blood brother was one that caught our eye all summer. He’s got the substance and mass to be a crowd pleaser among the cow/calf producers. He displays a lot of character and masculinity. He has that herd bull look! When we look at him we see a strong physical influence coming from L205. He will be up there at the top with his blood brothers when everyone has made their picks.

He’s full quartered. That’s easy to see. There’s no way he can hide it. But he doesn’t quit there. You’ll find him possessing a deep full rib as well as a lot of depth front to back. His dam was bought as a calf from Jim Ransom, Carberry, MB. She’s proven to be a wise investment and is now in our ET program.

He may have started out as a little 81 pounder but he can run with the big guys now. The cowboys and breeders will like his square build as well as his muscle and middle. Once we checked out his dams pedigree it all started to make sense. You will find Oil Patch’s dam in both the top and bottom of 385Y’s pedigree. We can’t write a better bottom side to a pedigree than this one.

Randy told us about the power of the Midnight cow well before her offspring topped the Kop dispersal. You will like their disposition too.

His dimensions will add up to more pounds and more profit for his new owner. His proud quiet disposition is complimented by his soft look and a very nice muscle expression suggests he’s far more than just a performance opportunity. Blackjack’s volume is set on a square base and impressive in his movement. His dam gave us a full sister this year that already stands out and she’s only a few days old. We are already anxiously anticipating the contributions she has in store for our program.

WLB 375W- dam of lot 10

His Blowout dam is one of our dependables. Her sons always weigh up. This one has to be her best yet. His goodness starts at his nose and doesn’t let up until you get to his tail. Thick from behind with no threat to his shoulders and front end. Deep sided, big middled and impressive from all angles. His ability to take off the horns adds to the long list of assets that he will carry with him in what ever pasture he walks this spring and summer. The Domino 75R cow was bought as a heifer calf in the first Shades sale. Her first calf was WLB Red 462P 375T. His calving ease abilities were utilized by M&S Cattle Co. and Czech-Mate Simmentals.

We own him in partnership with Randy Geisler. 254Z has taken us by surprise in just how influential he is when it comes to calving ease. We anxiously wait to see his daughters in production to see if the Ms Knight 112R cow will have a hand in what takes place on his maternal side. Randy told us about the power of the Ms Knight cow well before her offspring topped the Kopp dispersal having used a son of her previously. When you walk our bull pens take note of the disposition in the 254Z sons. 449B is as full barreled as any bull in the sale and has the CE muscle shape you want all your steer calves to have. His dam 373Z is a maternal sister to 10.4 our Lot 9 bull and one of our top Good Time daughters. Not only does this guy have the look, he’s also got the numbers to go with it.

MJ Black Ellie May 30R Roughneck’s dam

One of our favorites on foot, on cow family, and on paper. It was so easy to picture him. We chose this shot because it best shows his overall goodness and physical attributes, big ribbed, soft middled, deep quartered, bear haired. His list of physical and inherited assets is a long one. His sire has proven his worth here as well as at Hart Farms in South Dakota where he has sired a number of quality sons including the $33,000 Hart Factor . His dam is one of our favorite Wheaty daughters and represents what is proving to be one of our more influential cow families. See WLB 400Y at Muirheads, WLB 391Y at Double Bar D, WLB 388W used at WLB and maternal sire of five lots in this sale. Two good cow families join forces in what may well be our best Roughneck son yet.

While his numbers and his actual birth weight point to him as a heifer bull, we would like to bring to your attention that he has performance genetics throughout his pedigree as well as some pretty stout cows. Be confident in buying this guy for your cows and test him on a few of your heifers.

These Kop Baronson bulls have been a pleasant surprise with most starting out on the small side and as maturity takes hold of them they change almost right before your eyes. Their calving ease is just icing on the cake to what you get in the whole package. Commercial and purebred producers alike will want to take a look at this late March bull. He’s very likeable just for his type alone. He’s deeper flanked than most and sets down on some pretty good timber. His numbers are amazing to say the least. 406B registers in the top 2% for Calving ease, top 10% for Birth, top 2% for Weaning, top 4% for Yearling, top 2% for Maternal calving ease, and top 10% for Maternal weaning weight. OH! Did we mention he’s in the top 5% for ribeye and top 2% for marbling. The bottom of his pedigree is genetically foolproof as his dam is sired by Roughneck and she is out of Blowout’s dam. A surefire crackerjack that should be a surefire hit no matter what role you want him to play.


WLB bull 254z 419B BLACK BARON KOP MS KNIGHT 112R IPU BLACK LABEL 156S DCR MS 299 DEST L205 His dam is one of the “six flush sisters” She always ads plenty of growth pounds to her progeny. 419B’s hard data will put him right up there among the top of his contempories for real time performance. His paper work has him in the top 1% for weaning, yearling, and maternal weaning weight. They tag him as in the top 3% for maternal calving ease and milk. Take note of the two cows in the first line of his pedigree, Ms Knight 112R and DCR L205. What a maternal combination!

This guy is chocked full of good things, deep soft middled, covered with super good hair, very strong in his structure without being course or big in his joints, comes down off his rib in a really nice way. He’s backed by the Oil Patch and Good Time combination on the bottom with Ms Knight 112R on top. He’s right in so many ways! Almost an April bull. He’s just past 10 months of age when I’m writing this and he’s looking quite competitive among his February pen mates. Take a look at his EPD’s! He’s in the top 2% in five categories and the top 4% for three other traits including REA and Marbling. He’s far from being a “geek type”. As this guy matures he’s proving he has the goods and he has his ducks in a row.

The 47Y(Sunny) and Goose cross is going to be on display a lot in our red bull pen. Goose is a maternal brother to our headliner black bull, Lot 13. You will also see five ET full brothers sired by CMS Tradmark and out of Braveheart 8W, making them maternal ½ brothers to the dam of lot 19. We are now calving Sonny’s third calf crop and continue to be amazed at the birth to yearling spread that he puts into his calves. On paper it shows him being in the top 1% for both calving ease and yearling weight. If you’re carcass-minded then you will want to know that Sunny is in the top 1% for ribeye and top 2% for marbling. 431B shows a definite influence from his sire and his dam.

If we’ve ever done anything right at WLB, I would like to think, we did it when we bred this guy. An 80# birth weight ET calf sired by a 70# birth weight bull out of a Canadian National Grand and Reserve Grand Champion Polled Female which is also the dam of our World Hereford Conference Reserve Grand Champion Polled Female. His pedigree is made up of the bulls that made us what we are. Global 50S, Fresh 7M, Eli 83T, World Class 10H, Vaquero 25C, they are all in there. You can bet he would be staying here to walk our heifer pen if it wasn’t for the role already being covered by Powerball 27A who just happens to be out of another maternal sister to lot 41. 8402B represents what we continually strive to produce at WLB. An individual that can provide a very high probability of producing superior progeny with calving ease, performance, and maternal attributes while still contributing to “The Look”.
