NHD SIMMENTALS Norm & Heather Dodd 403-626-3223

Welcome to the 7th Annual PowerPak Bull Sale!! The PowerPak Bull Breeders are pleased to bring to town another excellent set of Red and Black Simmental bulls, as well as some top notch Red and Black Angus bulls to our 7th Annual Sale!! First and foremost we would like to welcome Wes and Carolyn Gurney, Gurney Land and Livestock, Fort Macleod, as partners in the PowerPak Sale. The Gurneys’ bring a choice group of younger March born Black Angus bulls to the sale. There is a definite feeling of optimism in our Agriculture Industry these days. It seems our long hours are paying off and we are being recognized as “Key Players” in the global economy. This being said, our industry is still a volatile one. An industry that can easily and strongly be impacted by weather, or say a major packing plant being shut down. One thing we as cattle producers can control is the quality of our herds. As bull producers, the Powerpak Group work hard at developing bulls that will work hard for you. We cull our herds hard, eliminating bad feet, legs, udders and calving trouble potential, all the while selecting for growth, fertility and longevity. Our perseverance allows you, the bull buyer to purchase quality herdsires with the guesswork taken out. A testament that our programs are working is that many of our buyers are repeat customers!!! This is your opportunity to buy bulls that will improve the profitability of your herd, producing those good beefy steers and top notch replacement females. Buy with confidence, then take those heavy calves to town and reap the rewards!!! Sincerely, The PowerPak Breeders

Feature DonATion LoT!! ion BARBeque- To-You!! Donat ! t! LoFor the fourth year we are proud to present to you our

Help us raise some money to go to a good cause which

has an effect on everyone in this community!

“Barbeque-To-You” charity auction item. This year we have chosen the THreADS of LIfe. Within the Threads of Life “Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support” we are delegating the donated funds go towards their program of “Helping families of workplace tragedy along their journey of healing”. Threads of Life currently serves more than 1,200 family members living with the impact of a workplace tragedy across Canada. In supporting this barbecue you are supporting us all. Once again, the PowerPak crew will donate two AAA Silver Prime rib roasts, as well as the barbeque, briquettes, Tony’s “Secret Sauce” and his time to travel to your Barbeque function (family re-union, staff party) and serve them to your guests. These two roasts will feed approximately 50 people. If you are having a function that needs to feed more than 50 people, don’t worry - we can cook enough meat on this barbeque to feed 300 people. So if there is a wedding, family reunion, or any other party in your plans, you supply the extra meat and Tony will cook it up at no extra cost. Here is a chance to have a wonderful barbeque, as big or as small as you like. All the proceeds of the “Donation Lot” will go to the Canadian Threads of Life Division.

PowerPak Bull Sale 2011’s “Donation Lot” being enjoyed by the Fiset/Lastuka Family Reunion - Wood Mtn., SK (Buyer: Lilliane Lastuka)

Association for Workplace Tragedy Family Support Threads of Life is a national charity that is dedicated to helping Canadian families along their journey of healing who have been affected by a workplace tragedy, life-altering injury or occupational disease. It provides a network of hope and healing to more than 1,400 family members through one-on-one peer support, links to other community support services and the opportunity to take action to help prevent similar tragedies to other families. Threads of Life was created in 2003 to fill a major gap in Canada's health and safety and social systems. There is no wellknown “number” to call or place to go to find the kind of emotional support and caring often required to make it through the aftermath of a workplace fatality or severe injury/illness in Canada. The long-term emotional, societal and financial consequences of this gap are enormous and evident. These consequences include psychiatric problems, stress-related physical health problems, substance abuse treatment, family stress, marital breakdown, suicide, loss of productivity, loss of personal income, increased social welfare costs, and more. This is a substantial and costly burden for every citizen and taxpayer, but one that can be significantly reduced. Threads of Life is a place where people can turn to help find the “cure” for workplace tragedy, which can only be accomplished through prevention.

Welcome to the NHD Simmentals Portion of the Catalogue. This year we have 11 quality Red Simmental bulls on offer. 2013 marks our 25th year of selling Simmental bulls and although the decision had already been made, recent events have confirmed that we are retiring from the Purebred Simmental business so we will have more time for family. As a result, we have our purebred cows for sale (check the ad in the back of the catalogue). We will continue to run the rest of our cows as a commercial herd. We have taken a lot of pleasure from our years in the Simmental business and cherish the friends we have made and thank all of our customers over the years. Rest assured we stand behind our program and our bulls as always. Thanks to all……see you down the road.

Red Willpower was an impressive calf since the day he was born, and is the only bull calf we have ever kept back from our annual bull sales for our own use. He continues to impress us with growthy bull calves and also with his female offspring which are turning out to be good mothers with excellent udders. His calves are deep, long and among the heaviest on weaning day

Welcome Everyone to the 7th Annual PowerPak Bull Sale! 2012 started out with great optimism in the cattle industry. Everything was looking up for the future of this business we are in. We had a great spring for calving, the summer came with lush pastures and the calves grew well. Fall came and the yearling and calf run started well. Then the shit hit the fan at XL. It just goes to show how little control we have over the market. Those that sold early did very well, and those who could hold on to their calves saw the price climb back up somewhat. There is one thing that held true even in the Our Beautiful Valley We Call Home!! tough market though, the good quality calves out sold the poor quality calves, and they all still sold by the pound. The heavier the calves, the more money they put into your pocket. The Simmental cross calves are very well accepted at the markets, whether they are steers or heifers. Having the Simmental cross in your calves also helps push that scale down a little more come fall. We know that the Simmental cross cow is a hard cow to beat. They are very good mothers and have that little extra milk so that their calves come in a little heavier in the fall. We work very hard here to make sure all our cows have very good udders, and can travel very well. These traits pass down through their sons and daughters. There is not a bull in our offering that I wouldn’t use in our herd due to their mothers udder quality or foot and leg structure. We also select the sires we use for growth and calving ease. We don’t like to pull calves any more than you do. We are proud to say that our cow herd works for us so that we don’t have to spend all our time working to keep them happy and healthy. We stand behind our program and thank our past customers for their ongoing support. We welcome new customers and look forward to working with you for years to come!

We are fortunate to be using a son of NHD Ginger 13G in our herd. She was a very productive cow and has left us with some tremendous daughters that are carrying on in her foot steps. We have sold some good sons out of her and are now happy to be using one. Odyssey has done a great job for us. His heifers average 90 pounds at birth and his sons average 93. We are calving daughters of his this year and they are becoming very good cows. Odyssey’s progeny are easy keeping, deep bodied, average frame, and very quiet. He will leave his mark on our herd for years to come.

Once again we used Nophalt on our second and third calvers, as well as some select cows. The heifers averaged 87 pounds and the bulls 94. He sure passes on his dark color, and exceptional depth of rib, as well as his good temperment. His daughters are calving very well and have loads of milk. They are going to be very good productive cows. Nophalt ranks in the top 2% for weaning weight and top 1% for yearling weight for the Simmental EPD’s.

Ph: 403-553-3856 Cell: 403-308-2473 wes.gurney@telus.net We Welcome You to the 7th Annual PowerPak Bull Sale! We're really excited to be part of the Power Pak Bull Sale! It doesn't seem very long ago that we bought our first purebred heifers from Andy Hart. We've invested a lot of time and effort into growing our purebred herd from quality genetics and are thrilled to see those efforts being rewarded with these 11 bulls. The bulls on offer are a diverse group of genetics from some of the most popular Black Angus sires in recent years. Whether its calving ease for heifers or performance in a herdsire, you'll find the traits your looking for in this group! Although they are a bit younger than the other bulls in this sale, they will be well past one year old at breeding time. We invite you to come see the bulls and their mothers for yourself. Give us a call and we'll be sure to have the cookies and hot chocolate ready! Wes & Carolyn Gurney

Welcome fellow ranchers! Did 2012 go by fast enough for everyone? Between taking care of cows and calves all summer long we did manage to take a holiday to Seattle and the west coast. We viewed very different countryside from unbelievable desert in Washington state to sidehill combining in Oregon state. We took the time to dip our toes in the beautiful Pacific Ocean. It was a great relaxing trip. Welcome To Our Ranch!! We have had a busy year from changing our cattle handling facility to the ongoing effort of building fences Dennis Lastuka, Linda Noecker & Adam Noecker and maintaining them. With only limited rainfall this summer our bull calves came off of grass in great shape. We have a good selection of heifer bulls from our U-2 Big League sire to our A. I. sire, Red Ter-Ron Full Blast. Our main herd sire, Red Cockburn X-Rated, has met our full expectations of putting on more pounds and maintaining good feet. He is a block meat machine. We used A.I. sires, Gold Bar Unique and Lazy MC Detour whom we admire for their performance and ability to produce excellent females. From participating in the Canadian Cattleman’s Association BIXS program I can see online my genetics work successfully. Our cattle had carcass data grading of Canadian Prime and AAA. Ribeyes were between 11.5 to 15.5 inches. So I feel confident that my carcass genetics will be passed on to you through our bulls offered for sale on March 7th, 2013. Our reliable ranch hand, William Nicas, will graduate in 2013 and be off to SAIT to acquire his instrumentation diploma. We will miss our extra help and bull feeding specialist. You can thank him for the great condition the bulls are in. Linda decided to start a purebred black angus herd this year and hopes to sell a few bulls and heifers in the 2014 PowerPak sale. Her herd name is Yarrow Creek Farm; hence we will now be Yarrow Creek Farm & Ranch. We look forward to seeing you all on Bull Sale Day and if you have any questions on the bulls please phone. Dennis & Linda

X-rated is a big hipped, deep ribbed bull that weaned at 865 lbs in October and weighed 1410 lbs Sale Day when we purchased him. The easiest fleshing bull we’ve ever known, his growth and get up & go of his calves is remarkable as are his heifer calves we’ve retained. X-Rated’s dam is an “Elite/Premier” cow and an outstanding producer with a very deep rib and sound udder.

BW WW YW MILk TM 2013 CAA +1.7 +55 +83 +18 +45 EPD’s A Shoderee Storm grandson, Storm 59W is big hipped with great length of body and a little extra frame for added pounds. A WW ratio of 104 and a 115 YW ratio put him at the top of the Flying K bulls that day. 59W’s sire, ML Storm 238T, comes from the hard culling program of Veno & McArthur Angus at Hanna AB. Storm 59W is what we were looking for to pack a little more meat on and, for a bonus, he also had the biggest ribeye measurement of all the Flying K Ranch bull calves that day. The growth and meat on these sons is tremendous!

Zappo 1211X, whose gain test is our 2nd highest 4.22 lb/day, is sired by Red Gold-Bar Unique JW 1113U who was selected as an A.I. sire based on his ability to add performance and pounds plus great feet. With only an 80 lb birth weight he fit into our program quite nicely. I always liked Unique’s sire, Dwajo Jokers Wild 47S, and coupled with Pathinder 5L on the dam’s side I knew it would be a great fit. Unique leaves great looking calves and this bull will definitely be noticed come Sale Day. Herd Bull!

Here is our first X-Rated calf, and a straight Canadian bred bull. The dam, 517R, is probably the most picturesque cow in our herd and we wish we had a lot more of her. Despite a little touch of frozen ears, he survived some nasty weather last year, weaned off at over 600 lbs and probably has the best feet of the bunch.

With his nice smooth shoulders he should be a stand out as one of the top heifer bulls!
