Complete outcross genetics to our program with a stacked pedigree for projected calving ease. With those numbers reading of a +11 CED and a negative birth epd, and actual birth of 74. Notice his high carcass epd’s and $B value to go with his calving attributes, this bull equates into one of the top bulls of the offering. Aside from his calving numbers, put him onto cows for enhanced carcass merits for added value in a calf crop.

YEAROUS CATTLE CO.

HERD REFERENCE SIRES YCC Identify was the top selling bull in our 2009 sale. We have used him extensively through A.I. He transmits calving ease, fleshing ability, scrotal development, and cattle with quiet disposition. He is backed by his dam’s strong maternal performance and productivity. His excellent epd profile makes him a balanced useful sire in all aspects of beef production in the commercial industry. His outstanding dam YCC Primrose Lady 866 has been a standout in the herd as she has produced many bulls selling to commercial producers. Her daughters include two pathfinders and rank at the top of the herd themselves. As a 13 year old cow she maintains herself, breeds back, settles A.I. and calves early in the season on a consistent basis. One of her true assets as a mature cow is often commented on by those who see her, as she is easy fleshing and as pretty uddered as one could ask for. Her udder quality and teat shape and placement and design would be rivaled by many of the highest priced plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills as to be able to maintain such youthful and desirable appearance and function. Yes, and they’re REAL.

These two bulls are embryo transplant full siblings. They are nearly identical from their baldy face to their performance and physical appearance. Their dam is one of the strongest cows in our herd from a maternal and consistent standpoint. Here is a chance to put these two bulls together on cows and get uniformity, and marketability from your calf crop. The real gem in these two bulls being bred the way they are, is that the daughters will make outstanding cows. If you retain or market replacement heifers, these bulls carry as much value as any bulls in the sale. Epd’s and registration numbers are pending genomic testing results on their donor dam. YCC is selling full possession and retaining 1/3 breeding interest in both bulls. New owners own all possession and salvage value.

Plateau Gelbvieh was started back in 1984 and since its inception has placed a great deal of time and effort in the production of high performing, maternal Gelbvieh cattle that are thick and wean heavy calves. Over the years when Balancer Hybrids were introduced, Jim started using Angus bulls and females to produce them. Through an extensive AI and embryo transplant program, Plateau Gelbvieh has utilized top genetics from both breeds to create the high quality product the commercial customer has become accustomed to. As you can see from this year’s offering, many full brothers and many AI sired bulls are represented. Some of the results of this extensive program include the champion Futurity bull at the 2012 National Western Stock Show and the Champion Gelbvieh female at the recent 2013 Black Hills Stock Show. The bulls are grown from weaning to yearling on a feed test that is approximately 100 days. Our aim is to develop bulls that have an opportunity to express their genetic potential for growth and still keep them in the right condition to enter the breeding pastures and not melt and maintain sound feet and athleticism. Over the past several years, we have utilized a Purina impact grower ration that is designed for projected average daily gains of 3.75 pounds per day. They are fed free-choice millet hay and are in large pens to allow for plenty of exercise. The bulls that have been cataloged represent what we consider to be the top end of the bulls we originally evaluated as potential sale bulls. These individuals have been critiqued for disposition, soundness and gain and will all pass a breeding soundness exam prior to the sale. We greatly appreciate all our past customers who have been loyal supporters of our program and look forward to developing new relationships. We present you with this set of bulls for your appraisal. Please feel free to stop by and study the bulls or give us a call with any questions that you might have. We look forward to seeing you on sale day!

Welcome

to the PERFORMANCE PARTNERS BULL SALE! All of us at Ernst Herefords give a very sincere thank you to our sale partners Duane Yearous and Jim Roelle and their families for allowing us to participate with them in this sale. I believe the opportunity for commercial cattlemen to be able to come to a single sale each year to buy bulls that satisfy their crossbreeding needs is unique. Ernst Herefords is a family operation. In addition to Barbara and me each of our four children and two son in laws are involved and contribute to the success of our program. Our son Kevin is currently a junior at CSU and my right hand man. He plans to continue his heavy involvement in our operation after graduation. Our goal is to provide practical Hereford cattle that will work in the harsh conditions of the western plains. You will find that the EPD’s on our cattle are fairly consistent from bull to bull. Their birth weight EPD’s are below breed average with many qualifying to be heifer bulls. Through the test of time the Baldy Cow has proven to be one of the best producing and adaptable females. Heterosis is a benefit the commercial cattleman cannot ignore because of the positive financial impact it has on your operations. We hope you can join us and inspect the bulls for yourself. Sincerely,

Marshall and Barbara Ernst and Family 33


Ernst Herefords HERD REFERENCE SIRES

JA L1 Domino 8619U

Tattoo: 8619U DOB: 3/5/2008

Reg. No.

Ernst Herefords main herd sire is JA L1 Domino 8619U. “Gordon� as we call him has far exceeded our expectations! He is a Line One Hereford, the most influential line of cattle in the history of the Hereford breed. Gordon was sired by a Holden Herefords of Montana son known as 286M. This bull has made his mark on some of the best Hereford herds in the nation including Jamison Herefords of Kansas, Debter Herefords of Alabama and Shaw Herefords in Idaho. We selected Gordon for the following reasons; the maternal power of his sire, his dams maternal characteristics, and longevity, the fact he is pigmented in both eyes, has a a red scrotum and is short marked, big footed and moves like a cat. We fully expected Gordon to be an outstanding producer of females to build the strength of our herd while producing solid bulls to sell to the commercial cattleman. Here is where Gordon has exceeded our expectations by producing powerful bulls that are pigmented, big footed with a proven low birthweight over several years of service. His current birthweight epd is 1.1 with a solid accuracy. We have some of his first daughters in production now and they are moderate framed with beautiful teats and tight udders. You can buy his sons with confidence for producing feeder calves and for superior replacement females in your herd!

We bought “Sentinel” as a calf at the famous Bieber Hereford Herd Dispersal. He is unique in that he has a ultra low birth weight epd of -0.8, is moderate in frame, pigmented with red testicles while exhibiting a lot of muscle thickness throughout. He is sired by UPS Domino 3027 and is part of ABS Sire Service Hereford AI battery. 3027 has been used heavily both commercially and in the pure bred industry for the consistent low birth weight he brings and has surely passed along to Sentinel. Sentinels sons are a sound set of bulls that will bring the same characteristics shared by their sire and grandsire, 3027. Sentinels dam was one of our favorites in the Bieber dispersal. Sentinels first set of heifers are an outstanding group that we look forward to getting into production. Sentinel is a “Baldy Maker Supreme” Sire!

We start the Hereford offering with this outstanding 2 year old bull. 157 is sired by Harland and his dam is by the 3027 bull also the Sire of our Sentinel herd sire. Harland and 3027 are revered low birthweight leaders that are also performers when it comes to packing on the pounds. Look at the birth to yearling weight spread of 1.0 to 90 pounds! That is a true curve bender. 157 has one of the best dispositions you will ever find as well. We are retaining a 50% semen interest in 157. Buyer gets full possession.

We have several of her daughters in our herd and they are wonderful producers. We raised 156’s sire, 910 and sold him to Willie Northrup in Montrose, CO. where he is doing an outstanding job. 910 was sired by the popular 719T bull in ABS’s bull battery and is one of the most heavily used Hereford sires of the decade!

This is another son of the 910 bull that we sold to Willie Northrup. Like his sire, the Y012 bull is a bull that should be a slam dunk to use on heifers. With his actual BW of 72 lb and a BW EPD of -1.8, he ranks in the upper 2% of the Hereford breed for BW and calving ease. You will like his style, square hip, and moderate frame. 37

He was one of the top marbling bulls in his contemporary group with a ratio of 118%. Feed intake was gathered on this group and Y036 had a -1.26 RFI.

Here is a bull that really covers the bases. He is a moderate framed, deed sided, soggy son of the Thor bull that is in stud at ABS. What an EPD profile! Y038 is below breed average for BW but his 100# YW ranks him in the upper 3%. Combine this with his excellent carcass EPD’s and his feed intake information with a -1.8 RFI, and you have a bull to build a cow herd around. He definitely is the new look Hereford! 38

He has been an eye catcher since birth and since weaning he just keeps on coming. 205 combines the low birth weight and maternal strengths we want in the bulls we produce along with the growth factor to make outstanding “Baldy’s” for the commercial industry.

227’s dam comes with a little story. When we bought Gordon there were several paternal half sisters to him that were outstanding. We tried to buy them or at least a flush. The owner would not sell them because of their quality. 2 years later that herd dispersed and I was able to buy the daughter of one of those females. She is 227’s dam. We have the belief this young female will go on to be one of our best producers. This was her first calf and what a great job she did. Sired by Sentinel he will make an outstanding sire in your program!

FIRST BREEDING SEASON INJURY GUARANTEE Applies to Yearous and Ernst Yearlings Only Since insurance companies have eliminated “loss of use” coverage and with the reality that young bulls are sometimes injured during their first breeding season, we at YEAROUS CATTLE CO. and ERNST HEREFORDS have worked to come up the a fair and reasonable way to share the risk with our bull customers. In the past, with customers that wanted the “loss of use” insurance, we shared one-half the premium cost for coverage. We have decided to continue sharing one-half the risk during this transitional period with the breed guarantee below. • All bulls selling for $2000 or more will be covered 50% by YEAROUS CATTLE CO. or ERNST HEREFORDS respectively if they are injured during the first breeding season and are not able to return to service. • Breeding season is defined as the 90-day period following the first turnout of the bulls. • Fifty percent of the purchase price of the injured bull minus 50% of the salvage value will be given as a credit in a future sale or toward a replacement bull, if one is available. • We must be notified should injury occur and before the bull is sold. • Any injured bull must be diagnosed by a veterinarian and results provided to YEAROUS CATTLE CO. or ERNST HEREFORDS respectively as soon as an injury occurs and prior to the bull being sold for salvage. • A copy of the sales receipt must be provided to YEAROUS CATTLE CO. or ERNST HEREFORDS respectively, if the bull is sold for salvage. • All claims must be made prior to September 1, 2013 Example 1: A $4000 bull is injured and will not heal. A credit of $2000 minus one half-salvage value will be given to the buyer. Example 2: A $2000 bull is injured and will not heal. A credit of $1000 minus one half-salvage value will be given to the buyer. Example 3: A $1750 bull is injured and will not heal. No credit is given. Buyer retains all salvage value. This guarantee does not include mortality, a life threatening injury; freeze damage due to winter elements, or mismanagement. We will not replace a dead animal if it is killed or has to be humanely destroyed for any reason.

Notes

44


EXPLANATION OF TERMS Calving Ease Direct (CED), is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births, with a higher value indicating greater calving ease in first-calf heifers. It predicts the average difference in ease with which a sire’s calves will be born when he is bred to first-calf heifers.

Marbling EPD (Marb), expressed as a fraction of the difference in USDA marbling score of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Birth Weight EPD (BW), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit birth weight to his progeny compared to that of other sires.

Fat Thickness EPD (Fat), expressed in inches, is a predictor of the differences in external fat thickness at the 12th rib (as measured between the 12th and 13th ribs) of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Ribeye Area EPD (RE), expressed in square inches, is a predictor of the difference in ribeye area of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Weaning Weight EPD (WW), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit weaning growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires.

Weaned Calf Value ($W), an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for preweaning merit. $W includes both revenue and cost adjustments associated with differences in birth weight, weaning direct growth, maternal milk, and mature cow size.

Yearling Weight EPD (YW), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit yearling growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires. Maternal Milk EPD (Milk), is a predictor of a sire’s genetic merit for milk and mothering ability as expressed in his daughters compared to daughters of other sires. In other words, it is that part of a calf’s weaning weight attributed to milk and mothering ability.

Beef Value ($B), an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires.

Carcass Weight EPD (CW), expressed in pounds is a predictor of the differences in hot carcass weight of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.
