1 Welcome to our third annual event! First of all we would like to thank all of you who supported us last year and everybody who attended our event. The confidence from the buyers in our program was incredible. This year, with almost twice the number of bulls, I'm very impressed that we managed to out surpass the quality of last year's bulls. We did get a chance to have a real good look at them during the photos shoot even if it was -25 with some wind ha!!!!ha!!!! and I invite anybody to come and see for themselves. This year for the first time we're offering some black bulls, these guys have been getting lots of attention, they are very good as well. As before, no bulls have been sold as yearling so these aren't leftovers that didn't sell last year. These bulls were never pushed as yearling and went on grass all summer and spent the winter on 10 lbs. of oats and silage and no extra supplements. The yearlings for next year and all the replacement heifers are also on oats in order to bring the feeding program closer to what the Aspen Hill feeding program was, as it worked very well. Following up on last year's bulls, the feedback on how they stayed together and worked is awesome and as we didn't get a chance to talk to everybody, if you have one of our bulls and have a different opinion, please let us know as it is very important to us. We do stand behind our product. To prove that these genetics work all the way to the rail, we figured that we would show some of the shipping slips that are mid Feb to April born calves and finished by 1st May to mid-June. All of these calves were home raised from birth. All AA or better grades with over 61% carcass yield. Compare your slips with these and see if our genetics could improve your bottom line. (See page 3) This year we will be selling a great group of approximately 65 heifers as well, right from the top of Birch Hills commercial program. Anybody wanting to view the cattle can contact Chris @780 864 8918 or George @ 780 402 9509 and if you want to view the sheep you can contact Tom @ 780 864 8924 ALL animals will be available for viewing the evening before the sale at the ranch so feel free to stop by. We would like to thank all of our advertisers for making it possible for us to produce a first class catalogue that's more than just another catalogue. We would like to thank Browarny Photography (Allan ) for his determination to make this photo shoot as successful as it was and the great promotion he is giving us through Show Champions. If you want to buy or bid without being at the sale, please contact us prior to the sale so we can make arrangements to have somebody represent you. All sight unseen purchases are satisfaction guaranteed or we'll keep the bull or heifers. We invite everybody to stop by the night before the sale to do their homework or just for a visit; we will be there to assist you if you wish.

Understanding Expected Progeny Differences - EPDs Commercial Programs - Using EPDs EPDs are useful tools when planning breeding programs. Attention should be paid to the heritability and correlations of the traits a breeders wants to improve upon within the herd. Some traits are more heritable than others resulting in swift progress being made in comparison to other less heritable traits. Also, many traits are correlated meaning that the expression of one trait is related to the expression of another trait. The correlation between traits can be either positive or negative and close attention should be paid to these relationships when developing selection criteria in a breeding program. Trait Heritability Range Level reproductive less than 0.20 low growth 0.20 to 0.40 moderate carcass greater than .40 high Understanding the heritability and the effects of correlation between traits will aid in developing a genetic selection program that will optimize improvement on desired traits while minimizing undesirable side effects. How to use EPDs in Sire Selection Each individual breeder must set his own selection goals, based on the needs of his operation, the situation for that trait in his herd, and his production environment. It would be easier if we could assume that the highest EPDs are the best. Unfortunately, it isn't that simple. Like most decisions, using EPDs for sire selection involves tradeoffs. For example, bulls with high growth EPDs may sire calves with a higher birth weight as well. And there may be other impacts on your operation to consider. For example, when breeding heifers it is desirable to produce calves with lower birth weights, so a breeder may want to pay special attention to birth weight EPDs of prospective bulls. If all calves are sold as feeders, the milk EPD would generally not rate much attention. Yearling weight will be important if you want to ensure finished steers in the appropriate weight range. It should also be kept in mind that reaction to selection can differ from trait to trait. This is because some traits have higher heritability than others, and are more easily passed to offspring. For instance, growth traits such as weaning weight respond faster to selection than reproductive traits such as age at first calving. A balance of traits is required, and the perfect balance for you will depend on your climatic, nutritional and economic environment, as well as the management goals you have set for your herd. One way to select for several traits are to set minimum and maximum acceptable levels for each trait, and then choose sires that meet criteria. Another method would be rank all sires, on each trait, then develop a weighted index which ranks each bull from one (most desirable) to five for each trait.

Producer 1 is looking for a sire that can be used on heifers; he wants a bull that will produce low birth weights and he wants to keep some heifer calves as replacements. Growth performance is not his first priority. The sire that fits his needs is sire D. He has a low birth weight EPD and above-average milk EPD. Producer 2 has a sound-breeding program; he is looking for a sire that will maintain performance and milking ability. He will select a bull that will increase growth performance and milk while maintaining calving ease. Sire B is his choice. Producer 3 has a herd of above-average-frame cows and is not planning on keeping heifers as replacements. She is looking for a bull that will give her the most gains at weaning. Sire A will give her the best result in weaning weight but could potentially give her calving problems. If heifers are kept as replacements, they will, on average, be inferior for maternal milk. Producer 4 wants to maintain his calving performance and growth performance but would like to increase the milking ability in his females. Sire C is his choice.

The Rocket has been doing a great job for us, When I was doing homework for a new herd bull and talked to Jim King and told him we definitely wanted to keep daughters from our new herd sire to rebuild our herd, this was his # 1 recommendation, so we bought him. At this point it was sure great advise as his daughters and his sons are both great and we are sure are anxious to see the first calves from his daughters. We should have a few on the ground come sale time. Awesome maternal power in this pedigree.

Most of the black heifers that we bought from DWAJO were bred to this guy and what a job he did at producing males and females. Being double bred Traveler and from a direct Net Worth 4200 daughter, it is no accident that Dwayne had picked him to breed most of his heifers.

The Designer was also one of Jim's recommendations, a bull with about one frame score bigger than the Rocket bull and also from a great cow family. This bull did a great job for us. Unfortunately we lost him after the first breeding season so this will be your only opportunity to acquire any of his sons.

Radium is a home raised bull that was purchased by Birch Hills as a calf at our 2008 sale from one of my favorite cows, she was a smaller frame cow but as correct as they get. This guy is one meat machine and passes it on to his sons yet his daughters are very feminine.

The Slim bull is doing a great job for us. He produced last year's high selling bull and it doesn't surprise me. When I first saw his two full sisters from the same flush, my first question to Brad was “Did you get any sons from that flush?” Being a Boot Jack program believer and with very little HI HO blood in our program, I knew this was an opportunity not to miss. I just had to have him and a great choice he ended up being. His daughters are very correct with great udders and his sons are equally as good with loads of muscle and length. The BOOT JACK program always did for us what Cliff Haugen promoted, feminine females and very muscular masculine bulls as this picture demonstrates, we do have another great offering of Slim sons this year.

Well every year I seem to pick a couple of bulls that I feel are what I would consider the top of the offering, taking everything into account, and this guy would have to be it. Starting with a 79lb BW and a 109 WW index and carried this through with a 120 YW index and is as correct as they come. Dwayne had only AI'ed a few heifers in 2010 and what a choice he made on this cross. His sire, a double bred Traveler, and his dam, a double bred Dutch 1508, which makes for a very unique pedigree. This bull could go work as a herd sire in any purebred herd and hold his own with no problems.

I want to give Allan Browarny a special thank you for his determination and support to get this photo shoot done at -25 with wind and snow every day. So Thanks Al, you are the best! Nobody can capture these guys like you can.

Now look at the depth on this 82 lb BW bull. I would say that our program is definitely working when we can produce bulls with this kind of mass and yet be suitable for heifers or cows. The Rocket 30Y bull was Jim King's recommendation for a bull to keep daughters from and they are some good looking. We will be calving the first group of them this year and the Melody cow family has done a great job for us at Aspen Hill. The original Melody 529 cow that came from Boot Jack produced the Excel son that sold to Flying K Ranch and has done a great job for them. Melody 7P is a very correct feminine Rex 33M daughter, a direct Knight 640F son that has produced some of the best females in the industry. This bull will have lots of friends come sale day, one of my favorite red bulls.

Great bull from a heifer. 80 lb BW, a 102 WW index and 106 YW index, not too bad for a first go at it. When I was talking earlier about the Platinum daughters doing a good job, here's a good example of it. All of our herd bulls have to breed heifers and cows, we don't have herd bulls that only breed cows and some that only breed heifers. Yes, we could get more performance from our cows but we would lose predictability on our replacement females and we believe that a good herd bull should do it all. We use the kind of bulls that our customers want to buy. Who needs calving problems.

Look at the length of these Slim sons. He just stamps then with that dark face. I remember seeing HI HO 916's dam, a direct Rambler 5162 daughter, when she was sold. She was and older cow at the time and was being sold as an embryo donor and from her is where that dark face came from. Very dominant genetics and good ones as well, these Slim sons topped our sale last year. Good numbers and very well put together. Walter Schultz has probably bought as many bulls from us as anybody and he bought a full brother to this guy last year.

Here's a Rocket son with a bit more BW from the dam's side but he has the performance to go with it. His picture probably doesn't do him full justice but at -25 with wind it's hard to nail them all, ask Allan, but you will see at the sale. He is a great cow bull.

Wow check out the meat on this guy. The Radium 52U bull is one meat machine himself and can sure pass it on. These are the kind of bulls that we talk about that will increase the muscling in any program, more meat means more weight and better carcass grades, these bulls are in this condition on around 10 lbs of oats and silage and no other supplement.

Good thick nice and quiet heifer or cow bull and talk about stacked with maternal power. Voyageur, Rambler, Excel, Knight‌. when my great friend Cliff Haugen told me to breed for females and the bulls would come, well he was sure right, bulls that look like bulls and females that are extremely feminine. Remember these guys aren't being pushed on feed and still look like this, they'll do a lot of breeding and still look good, muscle doesn't melt it just gets harder and this is why we went back to oats because we didn't want fat bulls.

Rad 84Y is from one of the cows that we bought back from Alfred after he realized that we were going to be working with Birch Hills on our new venture.

Lots of great cows in this pedigree, the 88R cow that produced the high seller in last year's sale, the Rocker cow, the Lakota cow that's Excel's dam, this guy should produce great replacements.

There are four of these Rocket sons crossed with Excel daughters and all are real meat machines. No guess in this cross and when we bought the Rocket bull he was Jim King's pick to keep replacement from and if he's daughters produced as good as they look, what a choice that was. We will know real soon, so these bulls from Excel daughters should be real cow makers.
