Burlington Livestock Exchange Burlington, Colorado


Welcome to our 2017 Sale

We appreciate the time and effort for those of you who look over our offering in this catalog and who have invested in our genetics in the past. We truly hope the animals you have purchased in the past have lived up to your expectations. And we also truly believe the genetics are moving forward in a positive way because the bulls in this sale are some of the best we have produced in this, our 30th year, in the Gelbvieh business. Our Balancer Futurity for the National Western this year was one of the best we’ve ever raised; however it was not to be because he died two weeks before we left for Denver. If there is any good news to come from that, it’s that there are several good half-brother Yarborough sons in this year’s sale. Besides the Yarborough sons, don’t overlook the offspring by King James, BARB 114Y and our newest herdsire, Edison. Once again a supplement sheet will be available sale day with yearling weights, ultrasound data and scrotal measurements. And most importantly, we’ve had two grand babies in the last 60 days (Rhett Thomas by Cody and Samantha and Karlee Marie by Matt and Sarah). Also Nick and Samantha should have one the middle of February. It’s calving time!!! If you can’t make it to the sale, it will be broadcast on Cattle USA.com. You need to pre-register prior to the sale. Sincerely,  

The Railes

Please join us for a complimentary lunch on sale day. There will be a $50/bull discount for taking them home sale day.

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 grade and yield. 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.

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 grade and yield. 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.

We purchased Yarborough from 3G Ranch in Indiana in 2013. We liked him not just for his show career; but we thought he would add thickness, depth and style to his offspring along with the growth factors--and we were not disappointed. His WW EPD and YW EPD are in the Top 10% and 15% respectively. In 2013, he was the National Champion Senior Balancer Bull Calf and in 2012 Balancer Ring of Gold winner of the year. His sire was a two time Reserve National Champion Balancer Bull and his dam was a NAILE Reserve Grand Champion Female.

People say there is no such

thing as a free lunch. In the cattle business, the closest thing to a free lunch is taking advantage of an organized crossbreeding system. Many crossbreeding systems are complicated. It takes multiple pastures and a master’s degree in genetics to understand most of the systems. SmartCross® is different—it’s crossbreeding made easy. Regardless of your cowherd base, SmartCross® gets you to the profit center of the beef industry in one cross.

The benefits of crossbreeding have been proven many times over by University researchers and at the Meat Animal Research Center (MARC) in Clay Center, Neb. Crossbred females are 30 percent more productive over their lifetimes due to increased fertility, calf survivability, increased weaning weights and cow longevity. Fads come and go in the beef industry, but the real money to be made is always on the cow side of the business.
