Elite Dams...

The Canadian Elite Cow Report is an effort to identify superior cows in the Angus breed. Emphasis is placed on early puberty, breeding and early calving, followed by regularity of calving interval and above-average performance of the offspring. The Elite Cow Report requires a cow to have a minimum of five calves to determine her regularity of calving and ability to consistently produce calves with a superior weaning weight year after year. For specific Elite Cow requirements, turn to the Inside Back Cover. Updated Weights & Ultrasound Scan Data will be available Sale Day!

“Sight Unseen Purchase Plan”...

We hope you can be with us on sale day, but if that’s not possible and you still wish to participate, please phone either Mike, Doug or any of the sale staff listed above with your requirements and price range. Should we be able to purchase a bull out of the sale fitting your criteria, we will guarantee your satisfaction! It’s pretty simple – if you don’t like him, you don’t keep him. We stand behind every bull in the sale 110%, including bulls purchased “Sight Unseen.”

Volume Discounts... Call Doug for more details.

At Warner go west down the main street, past the school to a T intersection, turn left and go two miles south, then right and go 3 miles west. Look for signs.

G A R Predestined ~ Sire of Catalyst

Catalyst came in dam from Gardiner Angus Ranch who are the Premier Breeders of carcass genetics in North America and a charter member of US Premium Beef. As you can see from his picture he is phenotypically the best, so if you have an eye for cattle he is the one. If you like to know what is under the hide and how his calves will perform, check out the numbers. He ranks #1 for marbling of all bulls walking in Canada as listed on the CAA sire summary for Black Young Sires. Quite a feat! He ranks in the top 4% for yearling weight and top 10% for weaning weight, ribeye and carcass weight, so if you are about top gaining cattle with the best in carcass capability take a look at these Catalyst sons. His first daughters calved this fall and they certainly are the right kind being moderate in size, with beautiful udders. Catalyst is bred right being by the “Best Beef Bull in the Business” Predestined, and out of a very moderate T510 daughter that we have flushed with considerable success. Catalyst is the real deal. Be sure to see him at the ranch sale day. Almost forgot to mention, Catalyst has been tested genomically via the Pfizer 50K HD method and thus his EPDs are genomically enhanced and because of his genomic profile you achieve further predictability. His Pfizer percentile rank indicated Catalyst being in the top 3% for Marbling, top 5% for CW, top 9% for REA, top 21% for Milk and Yearling Weight and top 31% for Weaning Weight. Isn’t it wonderful that we can obtain genetic information that gives us the reliability we need in buying and using bulls that will move our programs forward. Genomics is another very useful tool that we are using to provide Better Benchmark Bulls to you our deserving customer.

We sold Midland 753 in sale XII to our good friends Terry Unruh and Family. We retained an interest that day and upon seeing the calves at Terry’s and knowing the genetics, we decided to use him. The calves come real easy and we think the bulls will meet with your approval. Midland 753 is sired by BR Midland, the $202,000 bull out of the Midland Bull Test who is now owned by Whitestone, Krebs and Express Ranches. He is a proven calving ease sire with good carcass numbers and has 6,464 daughters on the registry. He has sired numerous champions throughout North America. The mother of Midland 753 was a donor at Pollard Farms and is sired by the ever popular TC Freedom 104 out of a 1407 daughter bred at Express. Note the 248G cow is by a son of 6807 from the great Sitz Everelda Entense 1137. Angus breeding at its best.

GAR EXT 704 ~ Dam of Baron W279 We had been looking for a 6807 son for some time, the great breeding bull that he is. He is the sire of so many great ones including Alberda Traveler 416, Connealy Dateline, Duff Encore, Rimrock, GDAR Traveler 011, GDAR Traveler 044, GAR Commitment, OCC Anchor, OCC Echelon, OCC Emblazon, T510, Sitz Traveler 9929, Woodhill Alliance and likely others that I have missed. And for daughters one could go on and on. So when we came across a young son out of a true breeding gem, we knew we had to own Baron. Could turn out to be the best money we’ve spent on a bull. The dam of Baron, GAR EXT 704, is an own daughter of the immortal EXT. She is a flush sister to GAR Exaltation 3144 and the record valued GAR EXT 614 who sold one-half interest for $230,000. 704 has had embryo flushes sell for $40,000, pregnancies bring as high as $80,000 and produced a daughter at $170,000 valuation, plus many others. 704 as of spring 2008 had 33 daughters in production with a combined weaning ratio of 103, an IMF ratio of 103 and an REA ratio of 100 on 83 scanned progeny. Baron is perfect on his feet and legs, has a great hip and as good a rear quarter as you’ll find. He is deep and wide based. He has ample performance with a 725 pound weaning weight and a 1288 pound yearling weight. He scanned a %IMF of 5.03 with a 13.4 REA and had a 38 cm. scrotal. His EPD profile indicates average growth and gainability as well as Milk, and his EPDs put him in the top 8% for BW, the top 15% for REA, top 10% for Fat and the top 6% for Calving Ease and top 2% for Maternal Calving Ease. Baron’s EPDs are genomically enhanced via Pfizer 50K HD DNA analysis.

Payoff is a bull we bought in partnership with Ole Farms in the spring of 2005. We were looking for a bull that would moderate frame, leaving thick, deep, easy-doing offspring with carcass quality second-to-none. After his seven crops of calves were tested, his EPDs have proven very, very desirable. Study them carefully, they are hard to beat. Sired by the carcass great and calving-ease sire Future Direction, who shows Marbling of +0.88 and REA of 1.00, Payoff has lived up to every expectation. His calves are born so very easy and are the most vigorous calves we have encountered. Payoff is a paternal brother to the recent $55,000 Grand Champion at the Denver Angus Sale, 2008. Payoff’s dam has been reported to be at the very top of the list at Standard Hill. She is by RP 3RD Bushwacker, who is well known for his very productive females, as well as great WW and YW EPDs with carcass traits that reduce fat. It should be noted that Traveler 6G is a paternal brother to Gardens Prime Time, the sire of the No. 1 proven dam for IMF. We really feel Payoff has become a critical step in our quest to develop cattle that will thrive in our environment and move forward our goal of “makin’ the grade. ” His sons have been very well accepted in our last six sales and do take note of all the daughters represented in the sale book. Payoff has exceptional numbers being in the top 1% for BW, Milk, Calving Ease and Maternal Calving Ease; in the top 6% for REA and top 9% for Marbling. Payoff has been tested NHF and AMF.

Next Step recorded the top yearling weight, the top IMF score, top REA reading of his calf crop at Three Trees Ranch and was their top selling bull at $100,000.00 for half interest to Basin, Express and SydGen. Next Step ranks in the top 1% for WW, REA, Marbling and Fat while being in the top 2% for YW. His son 8289, now at Earl Ranches, shows an average of 83 lbs. on his bull calves and 77 lbs. on his heifer calves and shows to be in the top 1% for BW, top 2% for Calving Ease and top 4% for Marbling. The Next Step cattle are very sound, docile and moderate and make excellent functional females.

Efficiency is the bull selected by Mike and Myles Immerkar of Semex from the entire offering at Gardiners in the spring of 2007. He was described by Mark Gardiner as “one of the true power bulls of 2007.” His sire, an ABS roster bull, ranks at the top of the list with respect to every trait measured. Objective was the #2 bull for registrations in 2010 and has over 29,000 registered progeny. No sire can match his combination of $B and $W with such high accuracy. His dam is a paternal sister to Select Sires’ Raindance bull who is renowned for thick sound females who have great udders with small teat size. The EXT 704 cow on the bottom side sold for $40,000 and has generated in excess of $750,000 in progeny sales and is a full sister to EXT 614 who sold for a valuation of $400,000. Efficiency’s numbers are hard to beat, his sons are the right kind and his daughters are keepers.

1331 1128 Benchmark Better Beef ~ Grand Champion Bull at Denver 2013

Last year I said “Red Basin EXT 45T5, alias, Montana, just gets better every day.” Well it doesn’t get any better than siring the Denver National Western Grand Champion Bull in 2013!! He does keep getting better every day. His enhanced EPDs via Pfizer 50K HD has him at the top of the list being in the top 1% for WW, YW, Total Maternal, Carcass Weight, Marbling, and heifer pregnancy while being in the top 4% for milk, top 5% for REA and maternal calving ease, and top 8% for calving ease. Is there a bull that comes close? We don’t think so. Montana carries an enviable pedigree tracing to the Black legend N Bar Emulation EXT, Red Basin Sensation, Cherokee Canyon 4912, Glacier Logan with a shot of Scotch Cap, Traveler 23-4 and Rainmaker 340. The dam of Montana is an own daughter of the carcass giant Future Direction and traces to such greats as None Better 9604, Rainmaker 340, Power Play, Sayre Patriot and Willabar Gay Gordon 67A. How could it be any better? Montana himself had ratios of 111 for WW, 113 for YW, 110 for %IMF and 105 for REA. Montana is tested AMF, NHF and OSF. But the “proof is in the pudding.” He continually sires calves that are very very desirable from all aspects of the cattle business. His calves come easy, they grow extremely well and when scanned for carcass attributes they come out on top. If you want them easy to look at, well having a Grand Champion son at the Denver National Western speaks for itself. As well daughters of his son Benchmark Better Beef were Junior and Intermediate Heifer Calf Champion at Agribition this fall. His daughters in production will soon be the backbone of our Red Angus herd having beautiful udders and being great mothers. We thank Six Mile Red Angus for their purchase of Benchmark Better Beef in our 2011 Sale and applaud them on their care and nurturing of “Benchie,” as they call him, to be the Champion he is. Take a good look at these Montana sons and grandsons, just could be a “Better Beef” among them.

At the Chickadee Red Angus Dispersal we tried to buy three cows pictured below. They sold over our budget. They were all sired by Red LCHMAN Copper Rob 1204D. So failing at buying the cows, when the semen on him came up for sale, we bought it. Copper Rob 1204D is sired by the great King Rob, who just a few years ago was the #1 bull for Red Angus registrations. King Rob is the sire of Gold Robber, the 1998 Denver National Western Grand Champion Bull and an ABS roster sire. Dakota Copper by Copper Rob 1204D was an ABS bull as well he is noted for muscle, volume and outstanding feet in his progeny. I think you will like these Copper Rob sons.

Our heifer calves are weaned first part of September each year, kept from their mothers for a week or so and then they go back to grass till the end of the year. They get no grain whatsoever until a month before breeding when they get 5 lbs. of a mineral barley pellet. The scan data as given is a result of a no grain ration.

Expected Progeny Differences Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) are the most powerful genetic tool we have for selecting the best animals for your breeding program. EPD’s are values that predict how the future progeny of an animal will perform relative to the progeny of other animals in the same breed.

EPDs:

• allow breeders to estimate a young animal’s breeding value – that animal’s value as a parent • allow a fair comparison of breeding value by removing environmental bias such as climate, feed and special management • the best tool available to compare animals between herds, countries and year of birth • help breeders make informed decisions regarding breeding stock selection by evaluating numerous traits such as growth-related traits (BW, WW, YW, Milk), carcass (REA,FAT, %IMF, etc.) and reproductive efficiency (CE, MCE, SC) • estimate the group performance of one parent compared to the group performance of another parent, assuming similar mates

Carcass Ultrasound With all the data that comes with each bull, I’m sure at times it must be overwhelming. In order to use body composition EPD’s of ultrasound data to their full potential, a breeder must have an understanding of the ultrasound terminology. Several of the ultrasound measurements are comparable to the familiar carcass measurements. The data is simply collected on yearling bulls and heifers instead of market ready steers. Take a step back from looking at the numbers and become comfortable with the terminology. RIB FAT: An external fat measurement taken between the 12th and 13th ribs - the location a carcass would be split into quarters in the cooler reported in inches. Rib fat is the main factor in the USDA Yield Grade equation. RIBEYE AREA (REA): An area measurement of the longissimus dorsi, or ribeye muscle - reported in square inches. This image tends to be the most difficult to collect and requires the most highly skilled interpreting technician. Both the rib fat and ribeye area measurements are taken from the same image. The REA score is reported as sq. in. per 100 lbs. of body weight. RUMP FAT: An external fat measurement taken from an image collected between the hooks and the pins of the animal, reported in inches. The rump fat measurement coupled with the rib fat measurement, is used to determine more accurately the overall external body fat, enhancing the accuracy of predicting percent retail product (PRP). In most cases, an animal will exhibit more fat over the rump than the rib due to physiological process of “laying on fat.”Therefore, more variation is often displayed in the rump fat measurements of a contemporary group than the rib fat. This image is highly repeatable and is the least difficult to collect or interpret. INTRAMUSCULAR FAT (%IMF): This measurement determines the amount of fat within the muscle (similar to marbling) and is reported in “%”. This measurement should be collected when cattle are maintaining a high level of nutrition. The field technician collects four images and the values generated by the interpreting software are averaged for an overall %IMF.

To evaluate seedstock, use EPDs, pedigree and visual assessment. With EPDs, the concept of “intermediate optimums” works best. Selection for one trait or for extremes generally results in unexpected consequences due to genetic correlations – for example, intense selection for high yearling weight will also increase birth weight. Successful cattle breeding requires a thoughtful and balanced approach to optimize fertility, growth and carcass merit while improving profitability and effciency.

SPRING 2013 ANGUS EPD AVERAGES FOR ALL CALVES BORN IN 2012 Black Angus BW: 2.8 WW: 42 YW: 76 Milk: 18 REA: 0.17 Marb: 0.28 Fat: 0.010 Red Angus BW: -0.2 WW: 48 YW: 71 Milk: 17 REA: 0.07 Marb: 0.27 Fat: -0.012

The Angus Associations, both AAA and CAA have adopted the CUP (Centralized Ultrasound Processing) program for Ultrasounding Carcass Data and are using this information for formulating Carcass EPD’s. This is the 15th year we have provided ultrasound measurements as taken by certified technicians from Windy Ridge Livestock.We feel it is very important that you, our valued customer, know what is under the hide as that really does determine value. It has been determined through many studies that carcass traits are highly heritable and that feeding has only a marginal effect upon the resulting carcass- genetics determine carcass quality!

Age Advantage Fall Born Bulls We have been growing our fall born program over the past few years. It takes some pressure off the guys at spring calving, we can utilize our bull power over two seasons and we have some bull customers that appreciate the extra age on the bulls. The fall cows calve late August and September and the calves are weaned mid March. As soon as we have grass, the calves are on pasture until November or December. They are scanned while on grass so that needs to be taken into account when studying the data. The 205 day weights are without creep and if we get some cold weather and wind in January, February you know how that effects gain on a calf. The 365 day weights are taken generally in September and again those weights are taken on the yearlings with only grass and salt as their feed source. Do take this into account as you study the weights. If you are looking for a bull with five-six months extra age, take a look at these bulls. They should cover a few more cows than a yearling.

Another very well bred bull featuring the “Best Beef Bull in the Business” Predestined, top and bottom with the granddam by Bushwacker. Scan of Lot 80 came in at 5.40 % IMF. A lot of bulls on a grain ration will not scan this well. These are the right genetics for carcass quality. Catalyst 227 ranks in the top 1% for Marbling, top 8% for REA and top 10% for WW and YW with Milk at 15%. Lots of volume in this guy.

From an own daughter of Prime Star, who shows Marbling EPD of 1.30 with 2,597 progeny analyzed. Note also the Ohlde bull O C C Great Plains, he with 917 daughters on the registry. This guy scanned at 4.31% IMF and ranks in the top 1% for Marbling, the top 4% for Milk, top 6% for YW, top 7% for WW. Your calves from Lot 81 will weigh more, grade better and the heifers will give more milk. What are you needing from your bull power?

The dam of Lot 83 is a paternal sister to Consensus, with her two heifer calves averaging 76 lbs. at birth and her four bull calves to date averaging 81 lbs. at birth. I’d say Casey 205’11 earns “Heifer Bull Status.” He scanned at 4.51% IMF, with 0.08 in. of Rib Fat and measured 1.09 sq. in. of REA per 100 lbs. of body weight and had the top LMY at 67.4%. He ranks in the top 3% for Marbling and REA, top 4% for Calving Ease and Maternal Calving Ease, top 5% for BW, top 8% for Milk, and top 25% and 30% for YW and WW. Covers all the bases.
