Angus breeders to identify suspect carriers of monitored recessive genes that cause defects in beef cattle, and test these animals. Our herd has been analyzed for the probability of inheriting these recessive genes and any suspect carrier animals have been tested. By virtue of DNA testing and pedigree analysis, every animal in our herd is free of genetic defects as monitored by the Canadian Angus Association to date.

As we sit down and write our welcome letter for ‘The Final Drive’, Complete Dispersal of the Elite Purebred division of Remington Land & Cattle, we would like to extend an invitation to all of our many friends and acquaintances from both the purebred & commercial circles of this great beef cattle industry. This is our invitation for you to join us for what we believe to be a great sale event and a great opportunity for you to add quality in volume as we offer our entire inventory of purebred/registered Angus, Simmental, Red Angus & Yieldmaster (SimAngus). We have strived to be diligent in building a breeding program that produces quality seedstock for a wide variety of customer needs. We have judiciously culled for structural soundness, udders, production, performance and overall quality. On October 17th, 18th and 19th you will have the opportunity to purchase some of the most sought-after Black Angus, Red Angus, Simmental and Yieldmaster genetics in North America. On offer is a tremendous set of Simmental donor cows that includes HPF Honey 007R, Triple C Smarty Pants, Lock N Load’s mother, Bar 15 Miss Knight 78E-51G and his full sister, Remington Miss Knight 63U as well as many more. The Simmental herd sire battery consists of some of the breed greats, with the likes of Remington General Lee (Agribition Grand Champion), STF Dominance (Denver Grand Champion), Remington Lock N Load (Agribition Reserve Grand Champion) and many more; they all sell! There is also a powerful set of young aged black and red cows and bred heifers that were to be the anchor of our future Simmental and Yieldmaster cow herds. The 2011 bull calves, heifer calves, and ET calves may be the best we have ever produced. The offering will also include the May/June 2010 long yearling Simmental & Yieldmaster bulls for your consideration. All Simmental and Yieldmaster embryos also sell. We have flushed several of our top Angus donors to leading Simmental sires to produce one of the top sets of SimAngus cows to be found anywhere. We will offer a choice set of Red Angus cows that were the foundation for our Red Yieldmaster program. They will be A.I. bred to Red Angus bulls and cleaned up with our Simmental herd sires. If you want volume and deep-ribbed, this is a set of cows that you can sit in and buy with total confidence. Our Yieldmaster program has been developed to meet the same high standards as our Angus and Simmental breeding programs. The Black Angus cowherd is a result of combing the country for the best Angus genetics that we could find. Through the use of embryo transfer we have been able to produce an elite set of Angus and Straight Canadian Angus pedigreed cows. We have used these cows and blended the old with the new by using some of the past great, breed changing AI sires, whose semen is rare and the most proven sires of today’s Angus industry. The result is a set of outcross Angus cattle like no other. The Remington Land & Cattle Angus cowherd contains a strong influence of Sitz Alliance 6595 and his sons, Sitz Alliance 9160 and Remitall Linebacker, as well as S A V Final Answer 0035 and his son, Remington Final Answer 13T. There is also the influence of such proven Angus sires as Krugerrand of Donamere 490, B C Matrix 4132 and Vermilion Yellowstone. The Angus cowherd and replacement bred heifers have been thoroughly sorted and culled hard for soundness, fertility and production leaving only the very best. The 2011 bull calves, heifer calves and ET calves will also sell. The offering will include the May/June 2010 long yearling Angus bulls; there are many herd sire and quality commercial bulls for your consideration. All Angus semen and embryos also sell. Our Straight Canadian herd consists of female genetics sourced from across Canada and mated to the best Canadian bulls in the business – Double AA Old Post Bandolier, Remington Spartan 93R, Angus Acres Heads Up 137R and Remington Heads Up 410T. All are proven, Straight Canadian sires with muscle, masculinity and soundness. The great Straight Canadian cow families represented are the Lady Lawn, Allegra, and the Annie K’s which include Annie K 548’99-dam of Double AA Old Post Bandolier. Also represented are the cow families from the famous Angus Acres herd and the descendents of the two three-quarter sisters from Crescent Creek Angus. As some of you know, along with the purebred cows we were running in Alberta, we also have been building a commercial operation in Saskatchewan. As we move on to our next chapter at Remington Land & Cattle, we will continue to see many of you at the shows and sales as we seek the industry’s best genetics for our commercial bull battery while building a truly great Angus and Simmental based commercial cow herd. The purebred beef industry has become a global industry, and we have had the great fortune to meet many fine people from around the world. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our many customers, purebred and commercial alike. We have enjoyed our travels to shows and sales everywhere whether as competitors, buyers or spectators, we had a great time. It has been a pleasure doing business with each and every one of you. Sincerely,

Randy Remington

WELCOME : : : Page 9

Welcome to the Remington Land and Cattle Final Drive.It goes without saying ,the Remington purebred cattle operations contribution to the pedigree seedstock business will be missed. Remington has purchased lead off genetics in many of the quality sales up and down the road. Places like Agribition, Denver and top end dispersal and production sales in the Angus, Red Angus and Simmental breeds. They have purchased the elite and went on and utilized these genetics in their walking herds and their extensive embryo program. They have mated these front pasture females to the very select and proven sires in the industry both through AI and their walking herd bull battery. In the three or four years that they have manned a show string, they Brian Bouchard :: 403.813.7999 have achieved the ultimate of success winning pen shows as well as Grand Champion bulls at both Agribition and Denver. It is regrettable to see this program disperse, but it will present one of the truly great opportunities to add front end and proven genetics to your program. The purebred program will be dispersed in its entirety. When you think about the tremendous demand there has been private treaty this summer in all three breeds, the timing of this genetic opportunity could not be any greater. With the cattle industry poised to head into the most exciting times ever witnessed, don’t pass on this opportunity. On behalf of the Bouchard Livestock staff I want to thank Randy Scott Bohrson :: 403.370.3010 and his entire staff for the opportunity of assisting Remington Land & Cattle in the procurement of these elite genetics, at various sale venues throughout the country, and in the marketing of these genetics at past production sales, private treaty and of course on Oct 17, 18,and 19 at THE FINAL DRIVE. I look forward to working with the Remington staff in the future as they build and perfect their commercial program. I encourage you to call the Remington staff or any of the professional sales staff in the catalogue or any of us here at Bouchard Livestock for further information and assistance with your livestock requirements. Hope to see you at the beautiful Remington sale facility in October. Geoff Anderson :: 306.731.7921

This program has been marked with excitement and innovation and has been a source of great pride for all that have been involved. The cattle offered in this dispersal sale have been assembled and bred with a long-term philosophy of starting with “ONLY” the finest genetics of superior Angus and Simmental breeding stock available. The uniqueness of this herd has never been duplicated and you can take advantage of the time, effort and investment that has produced this accelerated opportunity. We all appreciate the hard work and forward thinking of the dedicated stockmen that have helped to assemble and breed this unique breeding herd and we especially appreciate the time, effort, resources, foresight and passion that Randy Remington has dedicated to the Remington Land and Cattle breeding program. This program can only be described as a “Treasure Trove of Genetic Gems”. The uniqueness of the Straight Canadian Program with its foundations built on Angus Acres and Double AA genetics, the outstanding get and service of bulls such as Double AA Old Post Bandolier and Spartan 93R and the strong Sitz Alliance 6595 influence has anchored this herd. The Simmental program offers some of the breed’s exciting new genetics. The Red Angus program has a group of powerful proven donor cows. I know of nowhere buyers can have this great selection of breeding stock with pedigrees that have garnered as much respect as these do. Remington Land and Cattle are realizing the fruits of their dreams and this herd is on the verge of going to even higher levels. It is definitely not a stagnate herd and is now ready to be dispersed into many herds across the country to make an impact just as it has done at RLC. This dream and its unparalleled foundation are now available for sale to you. You, the purchaser of these fine cattle, will be able to reap the harvest of this dream. While the Remington cowherd will be sold on October 17th, 18th and 19th. I certainly believe that it may have an even greater impact as it spreads across the pastures of the seed stock industry. The Ranch will continue to operate as a top commercial operation and be a purchaser of top bulls to continue to raise commercial cattle following the same standards used to date. If any of the Remington crew, the sales team or Linda or myself can be of assistance in anyway regarding this landmark sale, please feel free to contact us.

RRS Black Reign 1A, born February 1, 1991 was the first purebred Angus born and registered by Remington Cattle Co, the first animal that was shown by them and the first Angus Winter Classic Sweepstakes Grand Champion Bull at the 1991 Farmfair. His dam had been Reserve Grand Champion at Agribition 1990 as a yearling and purchased by Remington Cattle Co. The Remington program has always been based on the highest quality, their goal to purchase the best and breed the best and the cattle selling October 17, 18 and 19 certainly attest to accomplishing this goal.

Ranch History

The Remington family has been in the cattle business for nearly 50 years. The operation has evolved over the years and currently Remington Land & Cattle consists of two ranches. One is located in the Milk River ridge area in southern Alberta, situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with grasslands that make for magnificent cattle country. The second is located in the Diefenbaker Lake area of southern Saskatchewan, where rolling hills and productive grain lands lay. We have been 100% committed to raising high quality seed stock and commercial cattle in the business. We have enjoyed the fortune of developing the value of our top donor cows and some leading sires of the industry to produce groups of consistent and predictable genetics. While working with the numbers, we have remained focused

Page  12  : : : HISTORY

on the goal of producing cattle for today’s beef industry. Therefore, all available tools have been utilized at Remington Land & Cattle: EPDs, ultrasound, performance, calving ease, structural soundness, pedigree and carcass data. In addition to the purebred Angus and Simmental and Yieldmaster halfblood cattle we are now dispersing, we run a commercial herd of Angus cows which are bred to Remington bulls providing us with the opportunity to prove our home-grown genetics. We look forward to continuing to operate and expand our commercial herd. We hope to have the opportunity to do business with you down the road as we seek bull power each season. Visitors are always welcome to stop by, meet the staff and tour our operation.
