2012 Breeder’s Choice Futurity Champion Bull
The Breeder’s Choice Bull Futurity is one of the most exciting events of the year in the Gelbvieh breed. It showcases the breed’s top young sires that are generally not offered for sale. The Breeder’s Choice Bull Futurity started in January of ’98 and it’s mandatory that the Breeder’s Choice Champion Bull sell in the National Sale. To date this elite event has produced three National Champion Bulls and two Reserve National Champion Bulls. In ’98 GKT Bud 11G won this prestigious event and later that day he BEA 001X • 2011 Breeder’s C hoi ce was also named the ’98 National Champion Bull. In Fut uri t y C ham pi on Bul l ’99 SPUR Beretta 703G was the Breeder’s Choice Champion Bull and he returned in year 2000 to be named Reserve National Champion Bull.

Breeders, if you are searching for a breed changer you definitely need to checkout this massively made homozygous polled purebred beef machine. JRI Trump 270W13B is one of the heaviest muscled bulls you will find in any breed and I am here to tell you he is as long as a freight train. It is rare to find this type of beef and extension in one complete package with the structural correctness and flawless eye appeal Trump possesses. Like all Judd Ranch genetics Trump is well endowed in the scrotal department with a 40.1 centimeter yearling scrotal circumference and he scanned a super sized 14.6 square inch yearling ribeye. This fall born diluter-free beef machine should flat boost your performance levels as he weaned off his second calf dam at a whopping 950 pounds. 2011 Fall EPDs: CE 109; BW 1.3; WW 43; YW 80; M 15; TM 37; GL -1.6; CED 101; SC 1.2; CW 8; RE -0.04; MB -0.07; DtF 5.6; CV 3.67 and FM 13.78.

Midnight) Consignor: Beastrom Ranch, Pierre, SD BA BR On Track 101Y • Lot 4 In 2008 we decided to produce a bull that possesses all of the best traits from herd sires of the past and the result was a bull called BEA Backtrack 801U, which was syndicated in the 2009 National Sale. The offspring of this bull do not disappoint; they may be the most consistent and uniform sire group to date. His daughters are functional, loaded with rip shape, muscle expression and are easy fleshing (see Lot 15) and the bulls are well balanced, stout and powerful. BABR On Track 101Y is a combination of everything “Backtrack” and is our most complete son from this sire group. His natural depth and rib shape is comparable to past greats such as Kaiser and Traitmaker. He combines smoothness of lines, a big stout hip and a sound foot with the strong maternal traits of his 11 year old dam. Dam LCC Prospector K8043 is a producer and consistently raises one of the heaviest calves on the ranch year after year while maintaining a Milk EPD of 28. On Track weaned off at an impressive 777 lbs on grass alone. This is a cow that plain and simply just gets it done and this young herd bull prospect is truly “On Track” to be a real world red purebred Gelbvieh bull. 2011 Fall EPDs: CE 104; BW 1.9; WW 41; YW 70; M 25; TM 46; GL -1.5; CED 101; SC 0.5; CW 7; RE 0.13; MB 0.02; DtF 1.4; CV 9.27 and FM 1.84.

Black Homo. Polled Purebred Donor • 50% Cloning Rights
Reg. No. 591285
Consignor: Boehler Gelbvieh, Orleans, NE Here is a tremendous opportunity to purchase the cloning rights on arguably one of the most dominate black, homozygous polled purebred donor females ever in the breed. Regardless of whether your focus is on the show ring, sale ring or in the pasture, EGL G565 progeny have risen to the top. EGL G565 first offspring XXB Miss Millennium 921J produced Boehler Gelbvieh’s 2004 Breeder’s Choice Purebred Futurity Champion Bull XXB Titanium 921N that sold in the ’04 National Sale for $26,250. EGL G565 daughters are big time money producers; checkout her numerous breed leading AI sons. XXB Drew 565K swept the 2001 Breeder’s Choice Purebred Bull Futurity and sold for $43,750 in the ’01 X X B Ludacri s 039S ET National Sale. Then her son, XXB Big N’ Rich 911P made a clean sweep 2007 Nat i onal C ham pi on Bul l winning the 2006 Breeder’s Choice Bull Futurity, 2006 Reserve National Champion Gelbvieh Bull honors and sold for $37,000 in the ’06 National Sale. One of her first Balancer sons was XXB Ludacris 039S ET (photographed) the 2007 National Champion Balancer Bull which JJ Boehler syndicated for $34,600. This is just a brief list of EGL G565’s accomplishments and you may note this black, homozygous polled purebred donor works incredibly well with purebred Gelbvieh or Angus genetics to create Balancers. 2011 Fall EPDs: CE 95; BW 4.0; WW 34; YW 70; M 14; TM 31; GL 1.2; CED 100; SC 0.6; CW 20; RE -0.05; MB 0.05; DtF 5.9; CV 25.54 and FM 10.13. Breeders, this cloning right is unequaled in the Gelbvieh breed with the genetic advancement EGL G565 brings to the breed, not to mention the thousands of dollars she has produced for Boehler Gelbvieh. And J.J. Boehler has already paid the genetic preservation fee of $2,800 on EGL G565, so the cloning process can start today. Terms of Sale Boehler Gelbvieh is selling 50% cloning rights in EGL G565 with the buyer and or buyers having the option to purchase 100% of the cloning rights by doubling the purchase price on sale day. This 50% cloning right does not limit the buyer and /or buyers to the number of clones they wish to produce. If the buyer and /or buyers so choose to only purchase the 50% cloning rights selling, Boehler Gelbvieh will guarantee that no other cloning rights will ever be sold or allowed and only Boehler Gelbvieh would have the right to produce EGL G565 clones.

Her EPD's allow any breeder a lot of flexibility in either a breed up program, a Balancer program or both. Phenotypically, she is the best female Cranview has ever raised. She is bred to their new young herdsire "CRAN X176 ET Opportunity" for a mid February calf. He is a homozygous black / homozygous polled Aberdeen son out of EGL Tiarra T003 whom Rob purchased in the 2009 National Sale from Eagle Pass.

An open cow is a cow that has not been exposed to a bull either through natural service or artificial insemination since the birth of her last calf. Calves sold off their dams (split pairs) shall carry the full breeding guarantee. MALES: Bulls are guaranteed to be breeders (defined as ability to settle healthy cows by 18 months of age) with the exception of bull calves sold at the side of dam, injury or disease occurring to the animal after time of sale, and gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the purchaser. Any guarantees with respect to ability to freeze semen shall be made by separate agrement between the buyer and seller. ADJUSTMENTS: The following adjustments do not preclude the right of buyer and seller to mutually agree upon other terms and conditions for settlement of any dispute. All claims for adjustment or refund must be made in writing either within six (6) months from the time of sale or not later than six (6) months after the animal reaches eighteen (18) months of age, whichever occurs first, with the exception of claims involving misrepresentation of service sire or as otherwise provided herein. If a female is sold as “safe in calf” to a given sire or sires on a specified date or dates and proves not to be represented, the buyer is entitled to a refund of the purchase price from the seller upon return of the animal to the farm of the seller at the seller’s expense. In the event an animal is claimed to be a nonbreeder, the animal may be returned to the farm of the seller, at the buyer’s expense, if in good physical condition and the return is in compliance with the health requirements of the state where purchased. The seller shall be entitled a six (6) month trial period in which to prove the animal is a breeder, the seller shall, at his option, replace the animal with another of equal value or refund the purchase price. Either option shall be deemed full satisfaction and settlement. Any animal returned will be at the purchaser’s risk. No guarantee is given concerning a pregnant female’s gestation period or calf’s condition. The seller is not responsible for damage caused by foreign bodies after the animal has been sold nor for sickness not apparent at sale time. If a female is sold as “open” and proves to be with calf at time of sale and examined pregnant within sixty (60) days after sale, the buyer may return the animal to the farm of seller prior to calving for a refund of the full purchase price or for another mutually acceptable adjustment. It shall be the obligation of the seller to bear all expenses incurred for transportation of the animal in question to the farm of the seller. Any adjustment provided herein, if selected, shall absolve the seller from further liability.
