LARSON’S LOST RIVER LIVESTOCK When we were selecting the donation heifer for this year’s Golden Rule, we wanted to donate a female that would properly represent the females that comprise the heart of our herd. We think Nellie E59 does just that. She is a sound, eye appealing female backed by one our best cow families. If you study our other consignment to this year’s sale, you’ll see both females come from the Nellie cow family. We believe Nellie E59 will be a quality addition to any herd. We also hope her proceeds will benefit the NDGA’s efforts to promote our great Gelbvieh breed in North Dakota and across the northern plains. Sells open.

Thank you to Larson’s Lost River Livestock of Clearbrook, MN for donating LRSF E59 to the North Dakota Gelbvieh Association for our 2018 fundraiser. The continued support of the North Dakota Gelbvieh Association is appreciated. Purchase your raffle tickets for $5 from any member. Raffle Prizes: 1 75% Gelbvieh Heifer donated by Larson’s Lost River Livestock or $1,000 cash 1 Package: Igenity/Neogen - 3 Horned/Polled tests with coat color ($180 value) 2 One Night Stay at Baymont Inn & Suites, Mandan, ND ($130 value) 2 $25 Gift Certificates to Stockmen’s Supply West, Mandan, ND Drawing will be held at the North Dakota Golden Rule Sale, January 29, 2018 at Kist Livestock Auction, Mandan, ND.

LARSON’S LOST RIVER LIVESTOCK Nellie D40 is a special female from a special cow family. In total, there are 32 females in our herd that stem from the Nellie tribe. Take this girl’s dam; her 2017 bull calf had a BW ratio of 95, a WW ratio of 112 and is one of the most eye appealing calves in the pen. There is nothing but productivity bred into this girl and the heifer calf she’ll have at side on sale day will be just as productive. She sells safe to JKGF Ditka C85, due January 22, 2018 with a heifer calf. She’s also a sweetheart on the halter and could make a very competitive junior project this summer.

CHIMNEY BUTTE RANCH We really like Chisum sired cattle. This one is exceptionally good. Read the numbers, look at the performance, study the maternal pedigree and imagine a clean made, deep bodied, extra-long mama prospect. Your dreams of owning an exceptional female can come true with this lady!! Her maternal brother, DCH C169, is used both in our A-I program, and as a natural sire in the pasture. This package of proven maternal genetics is hard to part with. We opened the gate for Chris, and he selected these females from a group of 100 bred heifers. Ultrasound indicates an AI sired heifer calf due 2/26/2018. Service sire is DCH C134, co-owned with Thorstenson Gelbvieh.

GOLDEN BUCKLE GELBVIEH - BAILEY DOCKTER BDOC 190D is the only bred female to have ever been offered for sale by Golden Buckle Gelbvieh. We feel this moderate framed female has a very bright future ahead of her! Being phenotypically correct with tons of rib will allow you to breed her any way and come out with a successful mating and profitable calf. Her sire, BDOC 205X, has left his mark in our herd. All of his females are definitely front pasture cows. Don’t miss this opportunity! Ultrasound confirmed bred to AWB Birch’s cold One 4D (CDGV159333) with a heifer calf due March 31.

PRAIRIE HILLS GELBVIEH PHG Ivanka E01 is probably the most exciting female we’ve ever consigned to the Golden Rule sale. She is one of the first daughters of the 2017 National Champion Balancer bull MCCA Capitol Hill 516C to sell, and she’s the real deal. Her dam is a moderate framed Traction daughter who came off pasture in show shape, even in a drought! This girl is halter broke for a 6 year old, and has already visited the backdrop, winning Reserve Champion Balancer Female honors at Agribition in November. There’s simply not enough room to write about all of the good this heifer puts together. Homozygous Black and Polled.

PRAIRIE HILLS GELBVIEH Elvira E18 is a heifer that received plenty of attention at our open house this summer. The very first daughter of PHG Paycheck to be offered at auction, and she’s a good one! A half sister sold to McCarty Cattle Co in Colorado as the high seller in our 2014 sale, and has turned into one of their leading young females. Paycheck is a bull we retained to use in our herd as the replacement for his sire. His calves were the leading group at weaning and are ‘the right kind’. Halter Broke, Homozygous Black and Polled!

She is extremely powerful while maintaining excellent femininity and is very sound on her feet and legs. She really covers all of the phenotypic bases. Her dam has been an excellent producer and was named a Dam of Merit in 2017 in her first year of eligibility. Her production record is putting her on the fast track towards our donor pen. Nellie E154 sells halter broke and could be very competitive on the tan bark. And even if she never enters the show ring, her best days will most likely be as a mama cow out in the pasture.

PRAIRIE HILLS GELBVIEH Genomic enhanced EPDs. PHG Elsie E79 is a female that really sums up 30 years of PHG genetics. Check her pedigree and see that it traces back to Esmoralda E08, one of the best females to leave our ranch. Her influence is still prevalent because the cattle just flat work. Yikes continues to make the type of females that work in all operations – soft middle, feminine fronted, with near perfect udders. A Yikes son was the Canadian Futurity winner for us this year, so this girl will be just as ready to raise that next sale bull, or show heifer. She sells halter broke and ready to go to work. Homozygous polled with genomically enhanced EPDs.

GOLDEN BUCKLE GELBVIEH Excalibur is one of those bulls you can’t help but notice. His dark cherry red color catches your eye right away. As you study him more, you will admire his softness, depth of rib and total mass. His dam is a dam of merit and has been a powerful, influential female in our herd. She has a son working in our herd currently and has proven himself his first year. Excalibur will be one of the only offspring to sell out of the high selling DDGR Innovation bull as we lost him to an injury shortly into breeding season. Excalibur was one of our Agribition show string and was a finalist for the Canadian People’s Choice Futurity Bull.

epd definitions CALVING EASE DIRECT (CED): Percent of unassisted births of a bull’s calves when he is used on heifers. A higher number is favorable, meaning better calving ease. This EPD can be vital to a rancher looking to decrease the amount of calves pulled in his herd. BIRTH WEIGHT (BW): Predicts the difference, in pounds, for birth weight of the calf. WEANING WEIGHT (WW): Predicts the difference, in pounds, for weaning weight (adjusted to age of dam and a standard 205 days of age). This is an indicator of growth from birth to weaning. YEARLING WEIGHT (YW): Predicts the expected difference, in pounds, for yearling weight (adjusted to a standard 365 days of age). This is an indicator of growth from birth to yearling. MILK (MILK): The genetic ability of a sire’s daughters to produce milk expressed in pounds of weaning weight. CALVING EASE MATERNAL (CEM): Represented as percent of unassisted births in a sire’s first-calving daughters. A higher number represents more favorable calving ease. This EPD is important to a rancher’s bottom line because it predicts which animals produce daughters with a genetic pre-disposition to calve unassisted as heifers.

TOTAL MATERNAL (TM): An index that combines growth and milk information as a prediction of the weaning weight performance of calves from a sire’s daughters. As an index, this value is not reported with an accompanying accuracy. A greater TM value means a mother that returns comparatively higher weaning weights on her calves. TM Index = MK EPD + ½ WW EPD. YIELD GRADE (YG): Differences in yield grade score, which is a predictor of percent retail product. Smaller values suggest that progeny will have a better lean to fat ratio. CARCASS WEIGHT (CW): Differences in pounds of hot carcass weight, adjusted to an industry standard age endpoint. RIBEYE AREA (REA): Differences in ribeye area in inches between the 12th and 13th rib. Greater ribeye areas are preferable. MARBLING (MB): Predicts the differences in the degree of marbling within the ribeye as expressed in marbling score units. Greater marbling numbers are preferable and are an indicator of higher carcass quality grades.Growth traits FEEDER PROFIT INDEX (FPI): An economic selection index designed to aid producers in selecting sires whose progeny will perform in the feedlot and are sold on a grade and yield standpoint. Well ranking sires for FPI have higher marbling and carcass weight than their contemporaries. As a terminal index, little emphasis is put on maternal traits such as stayability and calving ease.
