POWER

GENETICS Performance Tested Bull Sale

The bison industry continues to see strong prices and we anticipate that prices will stay strong through the next year. The challenges brought on by the drought and higher production costs are why now is the time to invest in high quality genetics to improve your bottom line. Here at Power Genetics we have focused our herds on performance and efficiency. We have produced award winning buffalo for over a decade, competing in performance and carcass competitions—consistently placing at the top. We feel that the best way to add dollars to your bottom line is to increase your calves weaning weights and increase slaughter weights. Our Power Genetics Performance Tested Bulls will give you that advantage. Power Genetics Performance Tested Bulls are exactly what we are offering. We are confident that our testing criteria sorts out only the top 5% of bulls from our combined herds. These bulls have the genetics it takes to build a superior bison herd. This year Diamond Tail will be offering their exceptional yearling heifers. These animals are pulled from Diamond Tail’s replacements and will make excellent cows for any herd. Please join us for the FREE Bison Genetics, Health and Nutrition Educational Program on Friday March 1, at 4:00 p.m. The program will be at the Renaissance Hotel, 3801 Quebec St., Denver, CO 80207. After the program you can view the animals a short drive away at the National Western Livestock pens. Do not hesitate to contact Boyd Meyer and Scott Butcher, with any questions about the animals their respective ranches are offering. We hope to see you at the sale!
