Welcome to Checkers 2017. Checkers was the original Red and Black consignment sale in Canada and continues to rank as one the top female sales in Canada. I would like to thank the longtime repeat consignors to the annual Checkers event and congratulate them on their leadership and commitment. They are part of a progressive group of Simmental breeders that provide direction and leadership to keep the Simmental breed in the forefront of the Canadian beef industry. We also want to welcome new consignors to Checkers 2017. It is a pleasure to introduce these first time consignors. This year Willow Creek will add a “mini consignment” sale. The Klassens have offered us the opportunity to select any bred or open heifer from their quality family operation. The Willow Creek offering will be blended into the entire Checkers sale order. The entire Checkers bred heifer offering for this year will be that front pasture kind with recognizable breed leading pedigrees and mated to calving ease AI bulls or proven calving ease bulls walking the pastures of these progressive breeding establishments. The open heifers

will be comprised of that same top end quality. These heifers will fit the bill when it comes to future front pasture quality. Many will have the potential to be in your show string for 2018,if that is part of your program.This year will feature two potential herdbulls upholding a Checkers tradition of offering some of the future breed leading herdbulls. We invite you to join us in Ponoka for Checkers 2017. Come and enjoy Simmental Christmas hospitality with an opportunity to evaluate one of the great sets of Simmental cattle to be offered for sale in the fall of 2017.

Thank you for a great 2017 and all the best to each and everyone of you. - Brian Bouchard

EPD Information EPD’s are "Expected Progeny Difference." They are a useful tool in selection. EPDs incorporate the individual animal with its averaged ancestry performance. EPDs do not compare across cattle breeds. They are individually based per breed. EPDs indicate a probable variance above or below breed average for that trait for a given bull's progeny. Use them for guidance in the direction you want your herd to go. EPDs are current as of publication date.

We purchased the dam of 165D from the Labatte bull sale in 2012. She is an ideal cow to look at and has been very profitable. Her first calf was a full sister to 165D and a high seller at Checkers 2014 to Kolton Mcintosh. He has been successful showing and selling progeny off of her. The second calf we had off of IPU 266Y was a high seller in Checkers 2015 to Labatte Simmentals at $25,000. Her third calf was our high selling black bull in in 2016 at $30,000. 165D is her fourth calf and you will definitely see her Missile bull calf this year featured in our bull sale catalogue. 165D is bred to our calving ease herd sire Skors High Roller 34C. We are very impressed with his calving ease and over all quality of his sire group. This heifer should be a very good investment. Bred April 22 to Skors High Roller 34C

41D and 51D are full sisters from a flush off one of our most powerful and proven cows. LRX 111U is the grand dam to the “Godfather” bull and the dam to “LRX Uncle Jeffrey 56A” bull that is doing a good job at Westway Farms. We had 8 heifers born from this mating and they are a real impressive group. Either of these females, red or black, should have the potential to raise powerful bulls and elite replacement females to create a quick return on investment.

There has already been three other breeders write footnotes about the Missile sired cattle. Each of them stating they are one of the very best sire groups they have had. We could not agree more. The Missile sired cattle are consistent and impressive. A lot of debate went into deciding which Missile heifer calf was our feature to bring to this sale. 24E is out of a productive Voyager cow with an exceptional udder.

Herd Bull time! Stewart Rake It In 14E is one of the most interesting young herd sires to be offered for sale in recent years.  Sired by the breed leading Profit, this young herd sire has huge amounts of potential.  His sire, Profit has sired numerous high selling bulls and females on both sides of the border for a number of different operations.  With the limited semen that comes up for sale commanding upwards  of $1000 per dose, look at a great son like Rake It In 14E to take your program to the next level.  His dam, Crowe Diamond Doll 4A was a high selling heifer calf out of the 2013 Shades of the Prairies sale.  She has since grown into a true Matron of the Simmental breed producing top end natural and AI calves every year.  As for the bull himself, Rake It In is a truly great individual.  He is incredibly sound footed, big hipped and soft made.  He is super cool fronted but still has all the power to go along with it.  Buy this great young herd sire with confidence, as he has all the potential to turn into the next breed changer! ** Owned with Tyler and Kelsey Thompson, Fort Assiniboine, Alberta

PICK OF AT TRI-K CATTLE

We are very excited this year to offer the "pick of the 2017 heifer calves". Its been a very busy year for us and with having our first baby due on Simmental weekend, there was just a bit of a logistics problem with having cattle in Ponoka. However we wanted to stay involved with this amazing sale, and feel opening up the heifer pen allows us to stay involved while giving a great opportunity to acquire some of the great genetics we have been putting together over the years. The quality in the heifer pen is deep and there is Reds, Blacks, and Fullbloods that should work well for anyone depending on what your looking for. The heifers are sired from our walking bulls such as MRL Matrix the $42000 EL Tigre son who has done everything we could of hoped for within our program, CRF Chevy a Crosby son who has sired some of the strongest young cows we have on the farm, ETZ Throttle and LFE Stubby who are represented very well in the black division and last but not least in the fullblood division some strong heifers from MMVI Eddy and a handful of AI of LRX Justice. We will have a info sheet on the heifers around mid November, feel free to contact Keith or Myself with any questions or stop in at the farm anytime to take a look if you are in or around the Beaverlodge area.

Early Sunset Lady 39E is a powerful deep sided, long spined individual that has all the dots connected. Lady is softly made, has really a great hind leg and stands solidly on a big deep foot. Her neck flows out of her shoulder in  a most acceptable angle. The dam of Lady is 1 of those cows you can hardly contain oneself to see what  her next calf will be. Lady is a 3/4 sister to the hfr the Bradfords  successfully campaigned this past summer. Lady 39E is an aggravatinly interesting female with a shining future.

We would like to extend our warmest welcome to Checkers 2017. Another year has flown by and we are suddenly back at show/sale season, the best time of year! This industry is one of the best families to be a part of, and we are overjoyed to be in it for another year. This year we are offering three females from the very top of our replacement pen, and we hope that they will go out and work for their new farms just like their mothers have worked for our herd. If you like the heifers, you’ll love their half brothers who we are selling off the farm privately. Please don’t hesitate to stop by the stall for a drink, and to look at some great females. Best wishes to everyone this holiday season, and all the best in the New Year.

When dad said that he wanted to sell this heifer this fall, my initial reaction was "Haha, good one", but the I realized he was serious!! This heifer has big time potential. This cow family has done nothing but good for our program, and now it's time for someone else to have some of the same luck that we have had. This mother of Embrace is a full sibling to the Chuck Norris bull we showed a few years back, and she has done an outstanding job on this home-run heifer calf. She's soft sided, deep quartered and has a huge hip in her. I can't wait to see what she is going to do in someone else's program, cause these females have all done great things for us.

This will be our FINAL Buckshot calf to sell ever, and she is an excellent example of all his calves. She's got super correct lines, big middle, a huge foot, and style to burn. We love how this heifer gets out and travels, along with her natural depth, she is a no brainer - you won't miss her on sale day. This cow family is also one of our very best, and we can't wait to share it with the new owners. This heifers half sister sold to KCH Livestock in this sale last year, and we feel this heifer will go on to be just as good as her sister was!

This heifer is also out of our walking herdsire Jokers Wild, and we love the type of females that he is leaving us with. This heifer is smooth made, cool fronted, and long as a rope. This heifers full sister sold through this sale last year to George Larre - so we know that this is a mix that just seems to be working! This is a heifer that can get out and move and we feel that she is the right kind to go out and make someone a good momma cow that is going to raise the kind of calves that we need in the industry.

Welcome to Checkers 2017 from Hampton Simmentals. I would like to thank Bouchard Livestock for hosting such an elite event, and am proud to be bringing a bred from the top of my pen and a couple top end replacements. I run a small herd of red and black purebreds and a small herd of commercial cows, in the Falun area. My numbers are kept to a small but quality driven number as I work off the farm. If you have any questions or would like to view the heifers or my herd, feel free to call anytime or just stop in for a visit. I look forward to visiting with everyone in Ponoka at Checkers where we can all get together before the calving and bull sale season. Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year.

I sold Josie’s sire HPR Sherman at Checkers in 2013 to the great rancher Russell Sevick. He’s had great results with Sherman. Genetics in him are a rarity as Lewis’s great Charo 604N cow is his dam. Josie has a genetically strong pedigree and a sweet body. The only reason Josie is on offer is that I am retaining a full sister from same flush in herd.

Slow Burn has been a crowd favourite since birth. She is total power. The rib, top, hip and extension in her front end will make her an exciting matron in the future. Her maternal sister was our feature red heifer in 2015 at Checkers and sold to the great Barkley family in Ontario. Slow Burn will grab your attention and will have a lot of friends. With our great cow Family Camille backing this young lady and the El Tigre son Casanova you can buy with confidence


Sassy is a tank. Her King Ranch dam is just coming into her prime and she continues each year to impress me. Her maternal sister sold last year to Nickel Farms of Bittern Lake and her maternal brother is working at Darcy Wirch’s of Alder Flats. The King Ranch daughters are moderate framed, beautiful udder cows that produce year after year front end calves.

Welcome to the 23rd Annual Checkers Sale from the Maxwell families. With the younger generation getting involved with the day to day decisions they hinted it would be nice to take some cattle to one of the Alberta weekend sales. Being previous consigners to the Checkers Sale, we are very excited to be a part of it again. We have brought some of our top replacement females to advertise our breeding program. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported our program in the past and are very excited about the livestock business in the future.

He was very long bodied, deep ribbed with lots of natural muscling. He has a great hair coat and a gentle disposition. His first group of calves, both bulls and heifers, look very good.

This is an outstanding heifer, thick, super deep bodied with a great coat of hair. 52E is correct in her structure with the perfect combination of power and style. If you believe in cow families, her mother comes from a good one. She has raised two high selling bulls at our bull sale and last year her heifer calf sold at Checkers to Quinn Wilson. 52E shouldn't need much extra attention to keep her looking her best.

From all of us Zimmers at Spring Lake Simmentals, welcome to this years edition of the Checkers Sale. This is the first time we have branched out from the Camrose Country Classic female sale as the fall workload on the farm needed to be spread out just a little. Besides that, somebody that looks just like me likes to go to Arizona and play baseball on the Major League training diamonds in October. We are bringing to the sale 3 open heifers that we feel are outstanding females from the heart of our open heifer pen and will represent us well. As you read through the catalogue, thank you for the interest and if you have any questions please give Eric or myself a call. We look forward to talking to you on sale day or any other time that we may run into you.

The sire of this heifer, ZSL Mandako, is one of the best bulls that was ever raised here on the farm. The sire of this heifers dam, Red Electric, has produced the most top end bulls and females at Spring Lake Simmentals as any herd bull that we have used. This combination of genetics is what makes up a very impressive package exhibited by this young female on offer to you at the Checkers Sale. This fall, if you are looking for a front pasture female with extra spring of rib, easy fleshing and potential to raise you a lot of really good calves that could make it back to this sale, be sure to check this heifer out.

This stylish heifer is a clean fronted and big middled female with a great hair coat that could easily make her a show heifer. Her sire, NUG Royal Red, has produced many high sellers in both bull and female sales in the last few years because of his consistency to make them not only thick, but also correct. This heifer comes from another really good, thick and deep Red Electric cow that has not failed to bring in one of the top end calves every year. If you need more reasons to consider this heifer stand behind her and check out her extra width of quarter and top line. She really does put the whole package together. checkers

Here is a female that we originally planned on retaining in our herd but decided to offer our best out of the 2017 heifer crop. This fancy fronted, free moving, well balanced heifer is sure to make a great addition to anyone's show string. Red Resistol 21E is a female that screams brood cow, just look at the stacking in her pedigree! If this heifer looks familiar its because she is the spitting image of her maternal sister that was offered last year and sold to Percy View Farms.

Willow Creek Simmentals

Welcome to the 23rd Annual Checkers sale. We appreciate Bouchard Livestock for hosting this high quality annual sale. We asked Brian and Darnell if we could bring a few more heifers this year in a mini production offering.

We agreed to offer our top end opens and breds. The bred’s are a diverse group of Reds, Blacks and a two Fullbloods. All of them were AI'd on March 28 and then exposed to our Sherriff son for ease of calving. These heifers will have excellent udders and great feet under them. The KWA Ultimate bull we purchased from Ashworths is the natural calf of Crossroads Ramona and sired by HOC Broker. These are turning into excellent females. The other breds are sired by breed leading AI sires MRL Red Whiskey, Olympian, Westgold Standout and Kuntz Sherriff. The heifer calves are highlighted by a couple of our embryo calves. The Captain Black and LFE Sheila 82A calf is everything that we expected her to be. The Capone and Kopps 76 U heifer is stout and excellent in her makeup. The rest of the heifer calves are sired by leading AI sires and their dams are good young cows with excellent udders and feet.

Ramona 101D is another one of the extremely big bodied Ultimate daughters we are offering for sale. Like the others, Ramona 101D is a huge ribbed, real stout made heifer that is attractive through her front end. She stems from a cow family that has really produced front pasture females the past few years. This cow family has sent females through this very sale to Everett More for $9250 and Circle 7 last year for $11,000. We feel this female really follows suit to the rest the cow family. To add to the excitement she’s safe to Cobra for an early calf. AI bred NCB Cobra 47Y March 28,2017, Exposed to MMWK Corporal 110D from March 31- May 30 (Vet feels safe to AI) PAG E 3 1

Sheriff has worked extremely well in our herd since we started using him and has quickly become our go to calving ease sire around here. Camillia 102D like the rest of the Sherrif calves is really clean fronted, long made and strides out on extremely square sound feet. We feel the most exciting art of this package is that she’s bred to MRL Capone. Capone is arguably one of the best red sire in the breed right now, this is a mating that could pay for herself with her first calf.

Hands down of the feature red bred heifers that will sell all fall. Last summer Brian and Darnell tried everything to get her for Checkers with no prevail. Fast forward a year and here she is. The only reason a heifer like this comes available is due to the fact Kyle and Ashley own her and are selling out of there purebred cows. The body mass and length of body that this heifer presents is truly impressive. She is setting down an very nice udder and moves out on a big square foot. Its no surprise though as she is sired by MRL Red Whiskey, a bull who we feel is one of the best Red bulls that we have ever bred to thus far in our program. Her dam was one of the very best cows to walk our pastures here. We cannot say enough about the future we believe this female will have. Safe to Sheriff for an early calf could make this investment pay for herself right off the hop. Don’t miss out on one of the very good females to come out of the Willow Creek program.

We feel this is quite possibly the best bred heifer in our offering. She was actually selected last year as a calf but with too many things going on we never got her halter broke in time. I think it may have worked in our favour though as she is truly an impressive female. Her cherry red color and sleek front end really makes her an attractive package. When you analyze her overall shape and mass you will really appreciate what she has to offer. Her dam is quickly becoming one of the top young red cows in our herd and I think Sarah 114D will do that for her new owner. KWA Ultimate( son of Crossroads Ramona) has left a powerful set of daughters that will surely impress come sale day. We are extremely pumped about this powerful bred and feel you will see why when you see her in Ponoka.

Like the rest of the Ultimate daughters, TIka 116D is truly a sale feature. Colby also dug deep into his program to bring one if his very best to town. This might be the most stylish, eye appealing heifer in the offering. You really have to appreciate the barreled rib shape and stoutness on these Ultimate daughters. Her mother was one of the top picks out of the Maxwell herd a few years back and has not disappointed as her first son by Vision was named Farmfair Reserve Bull calf champion.

We have 3 other daughters, including twin full sib heifer calves to Tracy 117D in the herd. We are presently flushing 43 T to Stuey . BEE Element (Radium son) has been a bombproof calving ease sire for us and his daughters are really starting to look like his strong point.

I think its safe to say this is the true sale feature of the entire offering. 9 times out of 10 this type of heifer does not come available for public auction but with Kyle and Ashley selling there purebreds and us commiting the very best, she makes the trip to Ponoka. We partnered with Beechinors to purchase Standout semen a few years ago with a vision of him siring females like this. Diva 122D is flawless in her structure, massive in her makeup and bred for success. Her dam is a cow that is very similar in makeup, massive ribbed, has big ,square dark feet and a picture perfect udder. If your business is raising performance fullblood cattle, take note on this future donor cow. The sky is truly the limit on a female like this. We feel she will be in the elite of fullblood females to sell this fall, and being bred to none other then Anchor T Metro only adds to the excitement.

Here is the very first consignment out of Kyle and Ashleys cow herd. Essence 6E is one you really have to appreciate for her huge barrel rib shape, which all goes along with her excellent feet and leg structure. Her dam is a top end black cow who stems back to Powerline and In Dew Time, both who are highly known for there awesome females. Essence is one we think very highly of and are very confident that she will make an impact on anyones herd.

Juliet is the definition of a sale feature. Right from day 1 she has been our pick of the heifer calves and she still holds that title. When you analyze her there are so many attributes you can’t help but admire. The rib shape she possesses along with massive muscle shape all tied together in a super stylish, cherry red package. Her dam NUG Juliet .is quickly becoming one of our best producing black cows. Although she has only produced red calves, she has passed on the same qualities that we love about her. The feet and udder quality along with the massive body shape are what we admire about this cow family. With MMWK Juliet being sired by Red Whiskey only adds to the package, HE is without a doubt one the best red sire we have used. We feel Juliet might be the best daughter he has produced here at Willow Creek and is going to have an extremely bright future. Donor quality female right here!

Itll be tough to find a darker red heifer this fall. We used Predestined to get the El Tigre influence in our herd, and boy have they ever been dark red. This non diluter heifer has a ton of hair, is easy fleshing and structurally very correct. She comes with a unique, yet very proven pedigree. All the guess work is done here, now you just have to get her bought and let her do the rest.

When Brian toured a in early October he insisted that he had Whimsical 95E coming to Checkers. Sired by Standout and going back to our donor cow, Moose Creek Whimsical 59W makes this heifer all that more exciting. Her grand dam 59W is what we feel as an ideal cow, her feet are as big and square as you’ll find and udder quality is second to none. Whimsical 95E like her dam and grand dam is big ribbed, thick bodied and has the real brood cow look. She will produce herd bulls.

Two years ago we stepped up and purchased some of the best available embryos we felt were available. We bought the Capone x Kop 67U embryos from Beechinor Bros. With the success of this cow it really does feel silly that we are offering this powerful daughter for sale, but we committed our best for this year production sale so her she is. Last fall Beechinors sold a maternal sister for $22000 to Randy Ward, and the maternal brothers are averaging in excess of $15000. With that being said there is no guessing on what this female will be as she matures. Cheerleader is without a doubt the stoutest topped, biggest ribbed heifer in the pen. She is a real performance heifer that comes from a calving ease type pedigree. She is one that is royally bred and will produce with the very best of them.

If you’re looking for a show or junior project then look no further. Here is one of the most attractive fronted, stoutest females we have produced. You may remember the High Voltage daughter Colby sold two years ago for $19,000, well we feel this young lady follows pattern very similar. Her first calving dam has really hit it out of the park on her first try as Miss Resistol 176E has been a pasture favorite all summer.

I think its safe to say out of all the females we will sell this fall, Sheila Ann 144E will without a doubt be the toughest to sell. Her dam LFE Sheila 82A needs no introduction as she is one of the most dominant cows in the breed. When you combine Captain Black you add in Captain Morgan and the great Flirtin With You cow, this is the definition of cow power. The maternal strength in this female is truly second to none. Sheila Ann 144E exemplifies extreme length of spine and superior style all together with an impressive amount of hair that will make the best fitter drool. We think so highly of Sheila Anns future that we would like to reserve the right to one flush at our expense and the buyers convenience. Homo Polled/ Homo Black by parentage LOT 55

Sequoia is a moderate framed, super stout female that has an incredible amount of hair. She comes from a cow family that produced the $15,500 Identity daughter through Checkers a few years ago. The blend of calving ease and performance In her pedigree is quite intriguing to the best of cattle producers.
