Saturday March 25, 2017 at 5:30 pm CST DFS Genetics Sale Site - McGregor, Iowa


Welcome to the offering... We would like to welcome you back for the Second Annual Cutting Edge Genetics Bull Sale. We truly feel that this set of bulls represents the type and kind we are striving to produce. The group assembled are all big footed, great structured, and are sure to bring added pounds to your weaning pen. Reports are just starting to come in from our customers in last years sale and we are proud to hear that the bulls from last year’s sale held their weight through breeding season and are producing an excellent set of calves in their first calf crop. The bulls being offered in this sale have not been pushed for the sale, we simply grow them out to provide our customer a bull who will not fall apart when put out on a set of cows. We have also made a point to cull these bulls hard, culling the lower gaining bulls as well as any bull with structural issues or attitude problems. As breeders we believe it is our duty to provide bulls with the correct set of traits to help improve our customers cow base. As you read through this catalog you will see that these bulls are off the charts in terms of EPD data, and when you get a chance to see these bulls in person we are certain you will see that the numbers line up with the phenotype presented. For this year’s offering we will provide a great group of 2 year old bulls who are all trich tested free, an excellent set of yearling bulls, a group of commercial cows including cow/calf pairs, as well as a few select embryo lots. We appreciate you taking the time to review our offering and encourage you to contact us for a sneak peek of this set of bulls. We look forward to earning your business and working with each of you moving forward. Don’t forget we stand behind these bulls 100%, and if you have any issues with a bull purchased through this sale please give us a call so an adjustment can be made. Nick Echard & Michael Denning

FBF1 Combustible - Full sib to dam of Lot 1

Offering 100% interest and salvage value. Retaining 2/3 Semen Interest in this Cattle Visions AI Sire. It will be pretty tough to part with Burn Em Up sale day as his presence has been a huge influence in our programs over the years. We have retained so many daughters by this great sire that we no longer have the need to run him in our own programs any longer. This Shear Force son is out of a full sibling to FBF1 Combustible and has produced many of our sale features over the years including multiple bulls who highlight this very offering. Opportunities to own a proven value producing bull come all to rarely, now is your chance to latch onto a proven producer of value based genetics.

• Weighed 1385 on 2/23/17. ADG 4.3 since 10/8/16. A tremendous bull who checks all the boxes. Phenotyp- • ically he is huge footed, sound made, big topped, and extended fronted. On paper he is off the charts in terms • of his spread from low birth to high WW & YW. Then you study his pedigree and see he is backed by Sweetness who has grossed well over $150K in progeny sales to date. Outstanding bull who will pay big dividends every calf crop! Consigned by, Gunn Simmentals

Weighed 1220 on 2/23/17. ADG 3.3 since 10/8/16. Low birth weight bull who brings added pounds to the weaning pen. Great structure and added eye-appeal. Consigned by, Echard Farms & Gunn Simmentals
