Welcome

B

ull sale time.... one of our favorite times of the year. So much of what we do, the decisions made throughout the year are based around this event. Whether we are on the elusive search for a new herdsire or standing over top of the semen tank scratching our head or walking through a fellow Shorthorn breeders pasture thinking about introducing a new female line into our program.... we ALWAYS have our customers in mind. Will these decisions produce a product that has a positive impact on the beef industry and help to put more Shorthorn cattle back into commercial operations? If you are in the beef business, the answer has to be a resounding YES. While we do utilize the show ring to market and promote, that same show string comes home to pasture with the rest of the herd and is expected to produce bulls for our bull sale or heifers that will become replacements. They must be easy keeping, big bodied, sound structured, fertile females with above acceptable udders. They need to calve on their own or with minimal assistance for first calvers. If they fail in any of these areas they simply don’t have a place here. You will notice that we are not offering any females in this year’s sale; we are striving to increase our cow numbers, in doing so we decided to keep all of our replacement females. Due to an increase in cattlemen looking to incorporate Shorthorn bulls into their commercial operations, we feel it is important to produce more of the kind of cattle they are looking for. We strive each and every day to produce a product that excels in all the traits that make Shorthorns the premier choice when it comes to a British based maternally superior beef breed. We look forward to welcoming you on March 19th, if we can assist you in any way please contact us or any of our qualified sale staff.

The Showcase M o n day, Ma r c h 19t h, 2012 ~ S al e T im e: 2:00 p.m. M S T at A lta C e da r S h o r t h o r n s, W e st e r o s e, A B Fellow Cattlemen,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to what is now established as one of the finest bull

sales in the Shorthorn breed; ‘The Showcase,’ from Alta Cedar and friends. Peter, Christine and their crew once again bring you the finest they have to offer. Their herds are some of the best you will find for a balance of traits that are becoming more and more important to today’s Shorthorn breeder or commercial producer. At Alta Cedar, breed character is very important and that is why the herd is as popular today as it ever has been. Their definition of breed character reaches far beyond the physical appearance of the animal; they truly have developed lineages of cattle that perform in the fashion that stockmen expect from Shorthorns. The cattle calve easy, grow well, and are quiet natured. The heifer calves carrying Alta Cedar heritage are tremendous mothers; they milk well, hold their flesh, and breed back quickly. The bull calves that are steered are standouts on feedlot performance and yield heavy, high-merit carcasses. The bulls that have been raised by Peter, and his grandfather before him, add value to the herds that they service. They sire the right kind that turn grass into profit. I know this to be true because I have seen it first-hand --- in my own family’s herd. There is only one place you need to be at in the middle of March if you’re serious about return on investment. We’ll see you in Westerose, Alberta. Respectfully,

Sale Consultant Luke Bowman: 614.301.2672

Given the opportunity to mature, we think this calf will be a show bull candidate. Despite his young age we feel he shows huge potential.... and why wouldn’t he, he’s a 47R son! Whoever grabs a hold of this calf will see some exciting times ahead. He is made about as complete as one could ask for.

An interesting pedigree out of the highly regarded Dottie cow family. When cattlemen refer to certain cows as “ground-sows” I believe they must be referring to this calf’s mamma! She is definitely one that is spotted quickly by visitors. Old-time, predictable genetics.

Donated by: Baehr Acres Shorthorns, Innisfail, Alberta

Every dollar raised from this donation heifer goes right back into the Alberta Junior Shorthorn Association to ensure they are provided with all the many opportunities that are available to members of this growing junior association and future members/leaders of the Shorthorn breed and our agricultural industry. I can’t think of a better investment!

A sincere thank you to Steven & Connie Baehr for their gracious donation!

Donation Heifer Auction Procedure

The final bid in each round will denote the amount of that bidder’s donation. Round 1 - Final bid is $300.00 to John Doe, John’s donation is $300.00. Round 2 - Final bid is $250.00 to Tom Jones, Tom’s donation is $250.00. Round 3 - The female is re-auctioned on a downward scale until no further bids are received. Each $10 purchased (donated) represents one chance in the final draw. (John Doe has 30 chances, Tom Jones has 25 chances and so on down the scale to the final $10.00 donation worth one chance each.) One ticket for every $10.00 bearing the contributor’s name will be put in the draw barrel, at the end of the sale, one ticket will be drawn with that person winning the heifer.

If you’ve ever wondered what the future holds for the Shorthorn breed, you need only to look to our juniors. Since its inception, the primary focus of the Alberta Junior Shorthorn Association has been to provide Shorthorn youth opportunities to become strong leaders for the future of the Shorthorn breed and the agricultural industry. This is accomplished by awarding scholarships, supporting programs and activities of the Alberta Junior Shorthorn Association and emphasizing the development of personal growth and leadership skills through varied contests, service on the AJSA Board of Directors, and involvement in the National Junior Shorthorn Show. The Showcase Group would like to extend a sincere THANK YOU to those who purchased tickets on the donation heifer at last year’s sale. Developing and maintaining excellence in the AJSA’s efforts to advance the Shorthorn breed can be credited to your support! Your commitment to education and our youth, will further strengthen the association’s service to the Shorthorn breed.
