Welcome to our 9th Annual Bull and Female Sale!

The “Southwest Iowa Gelbvieh and Balancer Group’ thank you for all the interest and purchases in our past sales. We have a great set of bulls and heifers for you again this year and look forward to seeing you at this year’s sale. The 35+ bulls for this year’s sale have been rate of gain tested and feed efficiency ranked at the Werner Feed Efficiency Testing Center south of Diagonal Iowa. We invite you to inspect the bulls from now till March 15th. Call Joe Werner at 641-344-4926 to correlate a time to see the bulls. The bulls have been fed for growth and to maintain sound feet and legs. They will also be semen checked and scrotal measured. We thank Bonnie Larson for ultra sounding them. The top 15 bulls had a feed cost for gain on test that ranged from a low cost of .387 to a high cost of .454. The highest cost bull in the whole group of 46 was .688. The average daily gain on these 15 varied from a high of 5.05 lbs./day to a low of 3.58 lbs./day random to the cost of feed consumed per head per day. Buy with confidence that these bulls have been tested for more breeding and genetic criteria than most bulls offered. The heifers offered are top breeding heifers and are guaranteed open. See you at the Sale — March 23rd in Creston, Iowa.

Delivery: Any bull bringing over $3500 will be delivered

free of charge up to 200 miles. Bulls sold farther than 200 miles will be delivered to a midway point between buyer and seller, as soon as it is convenient for both parties. Cattle selling in the Rafter R Gelbvieh Herd Reduction Sale do not qualify for these delivery terms. Contact Carl Reiste for those arrangements.

Semen Interest Retained: The sellers are retaining a 50% semen interest in all the bulls in the sale. The buyer is getting full possession and 50% semen interest. If we choose to collect semen we will work with the new owner and schedule the collection around his schedule. We will rarely exercise this option, but with all the new DNA technology we may want to use some of these genetics in the future.

Bull & Female Sale

— The Southwest Iowa Gelbvieh & Balancer Group Please bring your catalog with you to the Sale on March 23rd!

About the EPDs: The bulls in the Southwest Iowa Gelbvieh & Balancer Sale have

been tested and rated on all the major tests for breeding bulls; including ultrasound for carcass, semen tested, scrotal measured, BVD tested and the new EPDs for weights, milk, carcass, etc. The new EPDs are more accurate through genetic testing, termed “Genomic Enhancement”. This is done by picking out genetic markers in blood samples for individual EPD traits and the degree they influence each trait. In the past EPDs have been calculated from many generations of weigths and growth. The addition of genomic markers for each trait, combining the past accumulated records gives us the more accurate genomic enhanced EPDs.

This is a homozygous black, multi polled bull that is a quiet, smaller framed bull. He is long and naturally thick from front to back. He scanned a back fat cover of only .18. This bull ranks in the top 20% for WW, top 30% for milk, top 15% for total maternal and the top 1% for yield grade. He will produce black calves that gain and yield good. Take a look!

Here is a classy herd bull prospect out of the highly known and used Angus bull Musgrave’s Super M. His dam consistently raises outstanding calves with great dispositions that grow and really perform well. His EPDs reflect he would be a bull you can use on heifers and with a CED in the top 25% for the breed and the top 30% for milk he potentially could produce excellent replacement females!

Raer R Gelbvieh Cow Herd Reduction Sale Directly following the Southwest Iowa Bull & Female Sale March 23, 2018 at the Creston Livestock Auction in Creston, IA

A note from Carl… Due to recent health conditions, I have decided to have a herd reduction sale. I started building the Raer R Gelbvieh purebred herd in 1980. Over the years, the family and I have strived to produce superior genetics that are desirable to the working cattlemen. Our herd was built by retaining most of our replacement females in the past, and we are now offering you a chance at our selection of purebred and balancer cattle that are 9 years old and younger. All of our top cows and bred heifers will sell! In our program we have always focused on traits such as birth weights/calving ease, disposition, structural soundness as well as performance. I appreciate and thank all of our customers through the years. I plan on keeping a few older cows back so that it is more manageable for me. If you have any questions please feel free give me a call. I look forward to seeing you at the sale!

EPD Definitions… Listed below are the definitions of American Gelbvieh Association EPDs and the units in which they are published. e EPDs with an asterisk (*) next to the name are available to members only. Maternal traits 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. is EPD can be vital to a rancher looking to decrease the amount of calves pulled in his herd. Milk (Milk): e 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. is 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. Heifer pregnancy (HP): Predicts the probability that a bull’s daughters will become pregnant as first-calf heifers in a regular breeding season, expressed as a percent. A higher value of this EPD is favorable, meaning that a higher percentage of a sire’s daughters get pregnant as first calf heifers compared to other sires in his contemporary group. 30-month pregnancy (Pg30): Predicts the probability that a bull’s daughters will become pregnant and calve at three years of age, given that they calved as first-calf heifers. is EPD is expressed as a percent, again, with a higher number being more favorable meaning a higher percentage of a sire’s daughters will calve at three years of age, given they calved as first-calf heifers. Stayability (ST): Predicts the genetic difference, in terms of percent probability, that a bull’s daughters will stay productive within a herd to at least six year of age. e stayability EPD is one of the best measures currently available to compare a bull’s ability to produce females with reproductive longevity.

Efficiency traits Dry matter intake (DMI): Represents the average daily dry matter intake per day consumed in pounds. A negative, or lesser value, is more favorable. For example, Bull A has a DMI EPD of .15 and Bull B has a DMI EPD of -.20, so the progeny of Bull B consume, on average, .35 pound less dry matter per day than progeny from Bull A.

Growth traits 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). is 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). is is an indicator of growth from birth to yearling. *Mature weight EPD (MW): Predicts the average difference in pounds of mature weight of a sire’s progeny compared to their contemporaries.

$Cow: Represents the genetic value in dollars of profit of an animal when retained as a replacement female relative to other animals in the herd. A higher number represents more profitable genetics for maternal productivity. $Cow will serve producers in selecting bulls that will sire daughters with stayability and reproductive efficiency as well as other traits that lead to profitability in a production system, such as milk, calving ease, moderate mature weight and the ability of calves to gain. A female’s genetics also influence the performance of her calves in the feedlot and at slaughter, so traits such as feed efficiency and carcass value are also included in $Cow.

Carcass traits 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. Fat (FT): Differences for fat thickness, in inches, for a carcass over the 12th rib, smaller numbers of fat thickness are preferable as excess fat can be detrimental to yield grade.

*Average daily gain (ADG): Difference in average daily gain in pounds based on an animal’s performance during a feed intake test period. *Residual feed intake (RFI): Defined as the difference between an animal’s actual daily feed intake and its predicted daily intake based on growth rate and body size. Animals with a positive RFI value are deemed more inefficient because they consume more than expected while animals with a negative RFI value are considered more efficient because they consume less than expected. Indexes Indexes are tools that allow producers to select for several EPDs at once, making selections more efficient than selecting on one trait at a time. Indexes weigh traits based on their importance to a producer’s bottom line by using a trait’s economic and genetic value. Indexes are a good way to put selection emphasis on traits that are economically relevant. 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.

Efficiency profit index (EPI): An economic selection index developed to aid producers in selecting for more feed efficient cattle that still have acceptable amounts of gain. e EPI provides slight negative pressure on intake, while keeping gain at a constant value. By selecting on this index, producers will be able to find those animals that gain the same amount as their contemporaries while eating less. 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.

Guide to the American Gelbvieh Association Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) Expected progeny differences (EPDs) can be used to predict the average performance of a bull’s offspring compared to other calves in their contemporary group (a contemporary group being calves that were born in the same calving season, in the same year, herd, sex, and were managed similarly). EPDs are measured in the units of the trait, and show the differences in performance between animals. For example, if Bull A has a weaning weight EPD of 80, and Bull B in the same herd has a weaning weight EPD of 70, then bull A’s calves would be expected to be 10 pounds heavier at weaning than those of bull B. It is important to remember that this number is just a prediction of performance. Actual performance depends on many factors such as environment, management, etc. is being said, an EPD is by far the most reliable indicator of an animal’s genetic merit due to the amount of information incorporated into the calculation. e American Gelbvieh Association uses all available information to predict an animal’s EPD. is information includes: individual performance, pedigree, progeny and grand progeny performance, plus available genomic information. All this information is combined into one easy to use number for selected traits that helps breeders make genetic improvement in their herd.

HEALTH TEST: All animals have been tested and found negative for brucellosis and tuberculosis. The sale veterinarian will assist buyers on health status for specific states and testing for anaplasmosis and blue tongue if this is required for export to Canada. BREEDING GUARANTEE AND DEFINTIONS:

FEMALES: Females are guaranteed to be breeders, with the exception of female calves sold at side of dam, injury or disease occurring after time of sale, gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the purchaser, females used in ovum transplant after time of sale, females shown competitively after time of sale, and cows with calf at side. Cows represented as being “safe in calf” will have been examined by a licensed veterinarian and are so guaranteed. They are considered breeders without further guarantee. Females with a “due to calve” date in the remarks columns are considered safe in calf. A bred female is a female known to have been served by a bull either by natural breeding or artificial insemination, but it does not necessarily mean that the female is safe in calf to that service. A pasture-bred female is a female that has been exposed for the time stated, but it does not necessarily mean that this female is sale in calf to that bull. An open heifer is a virgin heifer that has never been exposed to a bull either through natural service or artificial insemination. An open cow is a cow that has not been exposed to a bull either through natural service or artificial insemination since the birth of her last calf. Calves sold off their dams (split pairs) shall carry the full breeding guarantee. MALES: Bulls are guaranteed to be breeders (defined as ability to settle healthy cows by 18 months of age) with the exception of bull calves sold at the side of dam, injury or disease occurring to the animal after time of sale, and gross negligence or willful isconduct on the part of the purchaser. Any guarantees with respect to ability to freeze semen shall be made by separate agreement between the buyer and seller.

ADJUSTMENTS: The following adjustments do not preclude the right of buyer and seller to mutually agree upon other terms and conditions for settlement of any dispute. All claims for adjustment or refund must be made in writing either within six (6) months from the time of sale or not later than six (6) months after the animal reaches eighteen (18) months of age, whichever occurs first, with the exception of claims involving misrepresentation of service sire or as otherwise provided herein. If a female is sold as “safe in calf” to a given sire or sires on a specified date or dates and proves not to be represented, the buyer is entitled to a refund of the purchase price from the seller upon return of the animal to the farm of the seller at the seller’s expense. In the event an animal is claimed to be a nonbreeder, the animal may be returned to the farm of the seller, at the buyer’s expense, if in good physical condition and the return is in compliance with the health requirements of the state where purchased. The seller shall be entitled a six (6) month trial period in which to prove the animal is a breeder, the seller shall, at his option, replace the animal with another of equal value or refund the purchase price. Either option shall be deemed full satisfaction and settlement. Any animal returned will be at the purchaser’s risk. No guarantee is given concerning a pregnant female’s gestation period or calf’s condition. The seller is not responsible for damage caused by foreign bodies after the animal has been sold nor for sickness not apparent at sale time. If a female is sold as

“open” and proves to be with calf at time of sale and examined pregnant within sixty (60) days after sale, the buyer may return the animal to the farm of seller prior to calving for a refund of the full purchase price or for another mutually acceptable adjustment. It shall be the obligation of the seller to bear all expenses incurred for transportation of the animal in question to the farm of the seller. Any adjustment provided herein, if selected, shall absolve the seller from further liability. HORNED/POLLED/SCURRED DEFINITIONS AND GUARANTEES

HORNED: An animal with a horn growth affixed to the skull that has or has not been removed.

POLLED/SCURRED: An animal with rudimentary horn growth that will not develop into a horn. The rudimentary horn growth may or may not become affixed to skull at an older age.

POLLED: An animal with absence of horn growth. (An animal can have scurs and still be genetically polled.) SMOOTH-POLLED: A smooth-polled individual has no scurs and does not develop scurs later in life.

MULTIPLE BLACK: indicates that the animal descends from a multiple generation pedigree of black animals, at a minimum both parents and all four grandparents were black. It does not guarantee that the animal will be homozygous for the black color.

MULTIPLE POLLED: indicates that the animal descends from a multiple generation pedigree of polled/scurred animals, at a minimum both parents and all four grandparents were polled/scurred. It does not guarantee that the animal will be homozygous for the polled trait.

HOMOZYGOUS BLACK HOMOZYGOUS POLLED WARRANTY All warranties regarding cattle being homozygous black or homozygous polled, or both, are agreements between the original buyer and seller and extend only to the original buyer. The liability of the seller shall not exceed the amount of the original purchase price and the seller must be notified in writing within 24 months following the date of purchase for this warranty to be enforceable. In the event an animal sold as homozygous black or homozygous polled is determined to be heterozygous for the warranted trait, the seller will make satisfactory replacement or refund the purchase price within a reasonable time. The seller must have the opportunity to inspect the calf in question and, at his cost, blood type or DNA test the calf and its parents and perform such other tests as necessary to confirm that the calf is heterozygous for the trait in question.

AGA REGISTRATIONS AND TRANSFERS: Each animal which is catalogued, offered and sold as a registered animal has a certificate of registry available at time of sale. When an animal is sold as “eligible for registry” or “registry applied for,” the seller shall be responsible for obtaining the certificate of registry and for the proper transfer of the certificate to the purchaser including full payment of transfer fees.

PURCHASER’S RISK: Each animal becomes the property of and therefore is also the risk of the purchaser as soon as it is sold, except it shall be the obligation of the seller to see that animals are fed and cared for free of charge to the buyer until unloaded for shipment or until the expiration of forty-eight (48) hours after the sale, whichever occurs first.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Any errors or changes in information contained in the catalog will be announced from the auction block. Such announcements shall take precedence over information contained herein. The sale will be tape recorded for future reference.

RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS: The above terms and conditions of sale constitute a contract between the buyer and seller of each animal and shall be equally binding on both. Animals resold following purchase in this sale shall constitute a separate transaction and the rights and obligations of the parties connected thereto are not covered by the above terms and conditions of this sale. Neither the host farm, auctioneers, nor any other person connected with the management or conduct of this sale assumes any liability, legal or otherwise, except as set forth above.
