VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS Keep Sawing Wood

Don’t lose sight The phrase “keep sawing wood” comes to mind these days. We’re nearing

the end of another successful year. The market is, well, the market. Most of us aren’t sure if we’re at the bottom of the cattle cycle, have farther to go, or making the turn and slowly gaining ground. Even the analyst can’t agree! Last fall, during the 2015 board meetings, the board of directors allocated funds to purchase and produce a segment on RFD-TV’s “American Rancher”. We assumed the responsibility for conceptually developing the segment, conducting the interviews and shooting the footage. Superior Productions was responsible for all post-production. As most of you know by now, the segments aired on RFD-TV November 14, 15 and 20. During the planning process, our discussion was to avoid featuring an individual. Instead, our goal was to consider relevant industry segments up and down the food chain. Commercial cow-calf, cattle feeding and consumer representatives were identified and contacted. We were prepared to make multiple calls, anticipating a few ‘no thanks’ responses. We made three phone calls and had three ‘yes’ responses.

December at the OKC West Stockyards, El Reno, Okla. The Charolais-cross calves sell with documented health, vaccination and herd management. Producers participating in IBA must select sires in the top 20% of the breed for all the traits of economic importance. This outstanding group of darknosed smokies top the market each year! The second stop on our tour was a visit with Todd Sigmon, division manager for Dinklage Feedyards in Proctor and Fort Morgan, Colo. Among Todd’s many responsibilities, he’s also the risk manager for Dinklage. One of Todd’s important take-home messages was, “Charolais cattle are an extreme value in what we do every day. Performance, dry matter conversion and the ability of the cattle to get large and do well—the nice thing about Charolais is the packers desire those cattle. When we put them on the show list, there’s usually lots of aggression, a lot of desire to own them. The cutability is amazing. The cattle will yield very well. There’s nothing more desirable in the industry today than a black-nosed Charolais.” Many registered Charolais producers recognize Brian Kemp, manager

“As a seedstock producer and even a breed association, it’s easy to restrict our vision to spring and fall sale seasons, stock shows, meetings, individual operations, etc. and lose sight of the true value of Charolais genetics and our responsibility to the supply chain.” The interviews were unscripted. In other words, we furnished each person with a list of five potential discussion points, but encouraged them to provide their own comments relevant to the use of Charolais genetics in their specific industry segment. In the spirit of honesty, we underestimated their responses. Robert Wells, Sam Noble Foundation; Todd Sigmon, Dinklage Feedyards and Brian Kemp, Mountain Meadows Farm, provided very salient commentary about the importance of Charolais genetics throughout the beef industry. Again, remember the interviews were extemporaneous and genuinely reflect the important role this breed plays in beef production. A few of their comments follow. Robert Wells spoke directly to commercial cow-calf producers when he said, “When you take a Charolais bull and put on top of a good Angus type cow herd, you get a calf that is deep made, has lots of capacity and plenty of muscle to hang well on the rail. These cattle will speak for themselves when a buyer comes to look at them. Cattle like this will make producers money year after year.” In addition, Wells is the executive director of the Integrity Beef Alliance (IBA) and is responsible for managing a branded beef alliance that assists more than 30 commercial producers in North Texas and Southern Oklahoma. More than 2,000 IBA feeder calves sell each year in early

of Mountain Meadows Farm, Sudbury, Vt. Mountain Meadows is an organic “farm to fork” beef operation supplying beef to arguably our most discriminating consumer. Mountain Meadows founder, Dr. Amiel Cooper, started the operation with eight Charolais heifers. Dr. Cooper had done his homework and recognized the value of Charolais to add high quality red meat to a crossbreeding program. Today, Mountain Meadows Farm supplies beef to 20 Whole Foods Market® throughout the north Atlantic, including New York, Boston and Connecticut. When discussing supply challenges Kemp said, “We are currently Level 4, GAP (Global Animal Partnership) certification, which requires different management criteria. We castrate at one day of age when we tag the calf. By tagging at day one and documenting, we have traceability from birth to the exact retail store. Genetics are very important to us. The cattle must have the genetic ability to grow, especially in our organic environment.” As a seedstock producer and even a breed association, it’s easy to restrict our vision to spring and fall sale seasons, stock shows, meetings, individual operations, etc. and lose sight of the true value of Charolais genetics and our responsibility to the supply chain. A big thank you to Robert, Todd and Brian for sharing the perspectives that help us refocus on the big, complex and sustainable beef production system.

Dispose of Animals

ASSOCIATION STAFF

Dispose of animals you no longer have by using the online system. The disposal button is at the bottom of the “Quick Look” screen. DO NOT dispose of bulls still being used, regardless of their status. DO NOT dispose of animals you are selling with papers. AICA DNA Requirements

AI Sires used “out of herd” and all Donor Dams must be DNA tested before calves can be registered. AICA recommends collecting DNA samples during the donor’s initial flush. Check the animal’s record to make sure the DNA work has been done before submitting registration papers. DNA kits are specific to the animal being tested. Contact Marilou Wegner to request a kit. AICA rules require signatures on bulls and dams you do not own. Signatures can be submitted online, fax, mail or e-mail.

Features of the Online Registration System

AICA’s online system has several newly enhanced features. Log in with your breeder number and password and you’ll find additional reports listed under the “My Reports” tab. The new Sire/Dam Performance Summary gives options to print lifetime records on individual animals or all active sires and or dams. You also have the option to get reports by calving year. Many other reports are available including performance reports and ultrasound reports. Ultrasound barn sheets can be generated using the report function. You have the option to print barn sheets by calving year or by individual animals. Printing quick copies of individual certificates is another useful enhancement of the “reports” function.

Link Your Herd Management Package to AICA

AICA has launched a new service that provides the framework to allow on-farm herd management computer software to exchange data with the AICA office. By using this service, breeders can avoid entering data in to both their local software and AICA’s online system. The software package would send AICA the data. If you wish to take advantage of this new service, ask your software vendor to contact AICA.

Understanding the New Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) By Heather Smith Thomas

A

s of January 1, 2017, beef producers must comply with the new rule regarding use of antibiotics in feed. This rule is aimed at better management of certain antibiotics that are considered medically important to humans—putting them under more veterinary supervision. This is part of a larger movement to minimize the development of antibioticresistant bacteria. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken several steps in recent years to change how these antibiotics can be legally used in livestock production, regarding the addition of antibiotics to feed and water to enhance growth of these animals. The goal of the FDA is aimed at more judicious use of antibiotics to protect public health (with no antibiotic residues in meat) and to prevent potentially resistant bacteria. The VFD that ranchers will need after January 1, 2017 is a written statement from a licensed veterinarian authorizing the producer to purchase and use certain antimicrobial drugs CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

D E C E M B E R 2 0 1 6 î şâ€ƒ 27


in and on livestock feed. It does not apply to antimicrobial drugs that are injected into individual animals for treatment of disease or to medications added to drinking water. Russ Daly, DVM (Extension Veterinarian/Professor, South Dakota State University) says that the way the new VFD works is to think of it in terms of a prescription. “For instance, if a person needs some medication and goes to a doctor, you get a form filled out by the doctor and you take that to the pharmacy to have the prescription filled. In this instance, you take the form from your veterinarian to the feed store or supplier and they sell you the medication for your cattle,” he explains. This is designed to give veterinarians more say, and more overview of how certain medications are used in livestock feed. “This was FDA’s intent, to add a layer of checks and balances regarding certain feed additives. It is important for beef producers to know that it doesn’t affect every feed additive. For most beef producers in our part of the world, we are looking at the tetracyclines, which are drugs that seems to be used very often. So things like CTC crumbles, and oxytetracycline are the antibiotics for which the new order will affect most producers,” he says. There are many others that are not affected. “If people are only using ionophores like lasalocid (Bovatec) or monensin (Rumensin) or melengestrol (MGA) and other things that are not on the list, the new directive won’t affect them at all. When combinations of these products are used with VFD drugs, the VFD form would be required, since they include one of those drugs that are on the list,” says Daly. “It’s a good step for producers to talk with their veterinarians ahead of time to discuss the feed-grade medications they are currently using and find out which ones will be affected. It would be good to talk with a veterinarian about how the process is going to take place in their particular operation. Some producers will find that it won’t affect them as much as they thought it would,” he says. The client-veterinarian relationship is important, to discuss the medications being used, and the ones they might plan to use. “Producers also need to understand that the VFDs can only be written for what’s on the label of the medication. This includes the feeding rate, length of time it will be fed, and the uses of the drug. When a veterinarian fills out that VFD, they are required to follow exactly what’s on the label as far as approved dosages, etc.” The beef producer must stay within those directives.

“It always has been, and continues to be, illegal to use any medication in a manner that is not on the label. In the past, however, because these were drugs that were available very freely over the counter, there was no way to make sure these rules were being followed. Now that a veterinarian is involved, and has to fill out the form in a very specific manner, there won’t be any leeway regarding going off label in a different dosage rate, or using the drug for a disease that is not on the label,” says Daly. As in the past, here is no provision for off-label use, at all. Thus everyone is assured that these medications are being used in the manner they were designed for. This is one more step toward assuring the consumer that the beef industry is providing a safe and healthy product, and not contributing to possible development of antibiotic-resistant pathogens. “Most producers and veterinarians are eager to show the public that the industry is using and always has used these medications in a responsible and appropriate manner.” We want to make sure that our industry continues to have a good reputation. The issue about antibiotic use has been a controversial one but we don’t want to get into a situation where the public thinks we are abusing this use and responsibility, in food animals. “It is frustrating for producers and veterinarians in dealing with some of the new regulations because there is not a lot of hard science behind them regarding how this actually is going to affect antibiotic resistance in humans. At the same time, we want to be able to keep using these drugs, and have these still be available for us to provide treatment,” he says. We don’t want to lose our use of them; when we have a sick animal, we want to be able to treat that animal and have it recover. “Thus this is also an animal welfare issue. We have to make sure that these drugs continue to work for our animals, and will still be available for us to use for the animals,” says Daly. “By the January 1 start point, the drug manufacturers will have all of their labels up to date, reflecting the FDA requirements. Anyone wishing to use those antibiotics after January 1 will need to have the form in hand. That also goes for any of these drugs that you may have purchased earlier, and still have on hand and want to use. The VFD is considered an authorization to feed that medication, and not just to buy the medication.” Every producer’s situation is a little different, so it will be helpful to talk with their veterinarian. The veterinarian is the one who initiates and fills out the VFD, giving a copy to the

It’s a good step for producers to talk with their veterinarians ahead of time to discuss the feed-grade medications they are currently using and find out which ones will be affected.

producer, who can then take it to their supplier. There will be various ways this can be done. It can be done in paper form, or electronically through on-line services. This is another reason why producers should talk with their veterinarians, to understand the logistics of how this will happen, with their own operations,” Daly says. “The rules did leave a lot of flexibility in terms of how these can be written. Many of the antibiotic companies will be coming out with their own forms that are specific to their product, and in some cases this will be very helpful,” he says. Along with changes in the authorization needed for use of these medically important food grade drugs, there will be changes in medically important drinking water medications. These water medications will now be classified as prescription drugs. “It will be very similar to how producers currently go to the veterinarian to get a prescription for antibiotic treatment of respiratory disease in a certain animal. This includes water formulations of tetracyclines and sulfas. Being a prescription drug means there is some flexibility in their use. Veterinarians could authorize extra-label use for these if they think it is necessary, on a case-by-case basis,” he says. “In some cases, with some diseases, we might find that water medication is more feasible for a certain group of animals than feed grade medications, because there may be more options available,” he says. Your veterinarian will be aware of the options and possibilities for treating your animals in the best and most appropriate manner. This is another reason to discuss all of this with your veterinarian. “It’s also helpful to talk with your veterinarian, not just regarding how this regulation affects you, but also to discuss your total heath program and all the various things you deal with in your particular herd. There are many producers who use feed-grade medications out of habit. These additives may not be based on a real need; it’s just the way they’ve always done it. This could be a chance to discuss their feed program with their veterinarian and maybe have a chance to simplify and reduce some costs as well. Their veterinarian could work with them on different ways to prevent and treat diseases besides what they’ve traditionally used in the feed,” explains Daly. “There will always be more details for some producers, but these are best hashed out in meetings with their veterinarians.” There will be some questions for some producers that won’t apply to others. Beef production is always an evolution, dealing with the various circumstances that come along, and the new VFD is just one of these. “I think it will go pretty well, though there may be a bit of a learning curve as some people tackle this new challenge, yet I am confident that it will all get sorted out. There will be some producers (such as the ones who raise grass-finished beef ) who won’t be affected at all,” he says. The feedlot and backgrounding operations will be most affected, and need to come up to speed on this new directive.

Hello! My name is Trent Bertsche and I’m from Flanagan

Illinois in Area 5. My parents are Steve and Julie Bertsche. I have three older siblings who were very involved in the AIJCA. Both brothers, Brandon and Troy, were officers and my sister, Jennifer, was a Herdsman of the Year. I’m 19 years old and attending Joliet Junior College in the Ag Transfer Program studying Agronomy and Animal Science. From there I plan to transfer to a four year college or university. I started attending Junior Nationals as a baby and officially started my AIJCA career at the age of 5 years old showing at the Junior National in Mississippi. I haven’t missed a Junior National since then. I’ve grown up on my family’s farm where we grow row crops and raise Charolais breeding cattle.

Q: What attracts you to the Charolais breed? A: My family has had Charolais cattle for around 70 years and I have always enjoyed seeing a pasture full of white cattle.

Q: What was your favorite Junior National and why? A: I can’t say that I could pick just one because all of them have special memories. Every year I meet more people and make more friends from all over the country.

Q: What is your favorite Junior Nationals contest? A: I have always liked showmanship because it can show

the amount of work you put in at home with your animal. I’ve always had more than a handful of cattle at many of the Junior Nationals. I think it is always fun to pick out which one I am going to show the day of. Showmanship also shows how much you can bond with the animal you have chosen.

Q: What was your favorite show heifer and why? A: My favorite show heifer was named Jordis. She was out of

one of me previous show heifers and Tenacious. Jordis was my favorite because of how calm and playful she was. Every day that we would wash or rinse I could just throw the halter over her back and she would go straight to the rack.

Q: Who is the most important role model in your life? A: My brother Troy is my most important role model. He has

taught me everything I know about being who I am. He was also 32  

D E C E M B E R 2016

the closest sibling I had in age. We got to bond more than my other siblings with them being in college.

Q:

What or who inspired you to become a board member and why?

madison_andrade@yahoo.com

Area 2 Cagney Effling Highmore, SD (605) 870- 0368 Area 3 Hadley Schotte Marysville, KS (785) 562-6632

Q: What does being an AIJCA member mean to you? A: Being an AIJCA member means a lot to me because

hadleyschotte@gmail.com

because they had both been on the board and really liked it and always told me I should run for the board.

both of my brothers are past board members and my father being is currently serving on the Junior Council. I felt obligated and very proud to keep the tradition going. With my brother as my role model, I’ve always looked up to him and all of his friends on the board.

Q: What are you hobbies/interests? A: Some of my interests are fishing, hunting, basketball,

working on cattle, showing cattle and helping around the farm.

Q: What is something most people don’t know about you? A: Most people don’t know that I was involved with all of my school’s music and musical productions. I was actually a soloist in at least one song at ever concert and a lead role in every musical.

Q: What do you want for Christmas this year? A: I would love to receive a Christmas Eve calf. It’s only

happened three times, all when I was under the age of eight. It would be great to receive one for my last year of showing at my local county 4-H fair.

Q: Do you have a New Year’s Resolution? A: My New Year’s Resolution is to make the most out of

being on the AIJCA board. I want to meet more people and create more friendships.

Sale Manager’s Comments:

This year the Charolais in the Rockies Sale will be a video only sale, but will again be in the Beef Palace Auction Arena. There will be no cattle coming into the sale ring as tv screens will be in the sale ring. There will be some cattle on display behind the auction ring, in the breeders stalls in the Charolais aisles or down in the “The Yards”. Some of the live lots will not be in Denver and trucking arrangements will need to be made from the sellers ranch location. Please contact me if you need assistance with any arrangements. There will be many videos available on the Charolais Journal website starting on January 2!

No female created more excitement before, during and after the record setting M&M Dispersal. She was the first female in the sale ring and sold for $16,000. As the day wore on and her daughters went through the ring, if we had brought her back to the ring, she would have brought more the next time around! Her four weaning age LT Rushmore heifer calf daughters averaged $6,125 off the cows and her three LT Long Distance 1st calf heifer daughters averaged $6,083, with one of them producing the highest selling weaning age heifer calf of the day selling for $10,250 also sired by LT Rushmore!!!! Ms Stealth 8512 is a maternal sister to the famous Baldridge Sweetheart 7M, that many, many breeders have tried to purchase from Derry Wright & Cody Runft. #8512’s dam topped the 2013 Northern Exposure Sale at 14 years of age for $14,500. You couldn’t ask for more proven track records. This flush sells with a guarantee of at least 7 frozen embryos (and all embryos over 7) if all embryos are frozen at the time of the flush or a guarantee of at least 4 ninety day pregnancies if all embryos are transferred fresh at the time of the flush, all embryo work will be done at Wright Charolais. Due to calve near sale date and will be available to flush soon after.

A Champion bred to be a Champion poised to be the dam of many future Champions! This is the first opportunity to acquire a flush or embryos by the reigning Reserve National Champion Miss Kennedy also known as “Miss Kay.” This female was admired by not only Charolais breeders but by many astute cattlemen as she came down the ramp and hit the green shavings of Freedom Hall at the North American last fall. But those that had the opportunity to see her this spring and summer when she was milking were even more impressed. She is a BROOD COW!!! This great female will make a big impact on the breed when it is all said and done; get on the train early and stay on! The IVF flush work will be done at MultiGen in Kentucky, a satellite of TransOva. This flush will be guaranteed to produce at least 7 frozen embryos or more for the buyer.

This great young female was chosen by Polzin Cattle and Grand Hills Cattle as their choice of all the quality young females in the powerful M&M Dispersal this past fall. She not only presents an impressive phenotype but in addition a breed leading EPD profile that ranks her in the top 1% of the breed in five different category’s including an amazing 220 TSI!!!! Her dam is M&M Ms Stealth 9509 that we purchased from M&M during the 2014 National Sale in Kansas City for $20,000 before many figured out the strength and power in the M&M herd. A full sister to #9509 and her bull calf topped the bull calf pairs during the M&M Dispersal at $12,800 with Grand Hills taking her home for their ET program. Nine daughters of #9509 with the oldest being first-calf-heifers, have sold for an average of $8,528 since October 2016! This flush by any sire the buyer chooses will be guaranteed at least 7 embryos that result in at least 4 pregnancies. The flush will be done at Polzin Embryo Center and can be a conventional flush or utilize IVF technology with the option of producing sexed embryos. With the mating flexibility of this young donor, the investment potential here is tremendous! Watch for a current video of Ms Blizzard 3510 prior to the sale.

the genetics of a past National Champion Bull to one of the most popular sought after outcross females in the Charolais breed today-was a definite no brainer! This mating turned out better than ever hoped. Turton has sired many great ones left and right. Her dam RRC-RA Daisy C311 is the super female Trae Simmons purchased that was a double National Class winner and double National Division Champion. A flush in her sold in the 2015 Charolais in the Rockies for $10,500! Alexandrite is moderate, sound, with plenty of power to go around; all combined in a beautiful haired and attractive package. Bid quickly and often on this one! She is sure to win you some banners and then flush her purebred or clubby to make your next great one. She has the sweetest disposition and will make a great show prospect for younger exhibitors or you big boys, you just cannot go wrong!

This young May born show heifer has got the attention of every visitor to Wild Indian Acres, she is stout and deep ribbed. And of course she should be broody, sired by Passport, who is out of Marion 0025 and then out of brood cow deluxe ACE Ms Wienk P125. This heifer is bred to be the kind of brood cow everyone wants in the pasture. The OW Miss Marion 0025 influence has long been a “go to” bloodline of dependability in the breed. She is one of the leading donors in our breed. And then Passport mated to her can only result in this kind of heifers. Then you add the dam of this heifer P125 to the mix and you have a heifer calf that will be a tremendous producer. P125 has produced over 50 progeny for some of the breeds most astute cattlemen in the breed. Don’t overlook this one!

We could probably stop talking once we say this heifer is sired by LT Rushmore 8060 and out of SCR Ms Turbo 7003, but why waste the space in the catalog. This June heifer is “dog” gentle and would make a great project in the show ring for a starter heifer for a young junior. Her sire Rushmore is the hottest sire in the breed today.

His progeny are making everyone sit up and take notice. Now think about the dam of this heifer. SCR Ms Turbo 7003 has taken her place as one of the great ones.

Elder’s Star Buck was brought into the Polzin Cattle program as a complete outcross Canadian sire to be used on the well-established bloodlines of their female herd. His dam, SVY Starstruck 8X was one of the most admired brood cows in Canada when she was named the 2012 Agribition Supreme Champion. Was this move successful? One only needs to look at the Polzin Leading Ladies sale report this past October. The only three daughters he produced in 2016 sold at a high level for $12,500, $4,250 and $17,000! Chris will let the buyer of this ¼ interest choose either the spring or fall possession.

Here is another bull that is pretty much an outcross to many of today’s popular bloodlines. The front end of this bull is “freaky” especially for a purebred Charolais bull. You are going to travel a long way to try and find a calving-ease specialist built like this. From his tiny head, choke-fronted look, smooth shoulder pattern, it’s all critical breeding traits when looking for a true calving ease sire. But that’s not all he brings to the table. In this sleek easy calving package he also ranks in the top 3% of the breed for Weaning Weight EPD, top 6% for Yearling Weight and top 8% for Terminal Sire Index! The performance and carcass traits stem from his sire LCOC Top Grade, who we cannot say enough good things about when discussing what he has done for our breeding program. And then look at the maternal implications on the bottom side; JWK Verna E225, Duke 914, Lemmon Actress X140 and the dam of Prime Cut, WCR Miss Ease 4314. This herd sire prospect will not be in Denver, but look for his video near the first of the year and then make arrangement to have your new herd sire shipped to his new home.

They have sold for $41,000, $18,500, $18,000 and $13,500 and many more high-sellers across the country. Classic’s donor dam is an elite cow of the Charolais breed and one of the highest revenue creators in the last few years. This bull is a powerfully built, soft made, big-topped and long-bodied bull that is also the heaviest weaning weight to date of any of his full sibs. This is a big time herd sire that is backed by a phenomenal heritage family! Expect greatness from his progeny.

There will be a great deal of breeders that will want and need to look at the video of this tremendous herd sire prospect. He is extremely deep-bodied, thick and powerful in his design and makeup. His sire is the National Champion Bull that is totally proving himself to not only be a show bull producing show cattle and pasture improvers. His dam is one of the Nelson’s most dependable donors as she has produced them 24 NC prefix sons and daughters including perhaps the greatest of them all NC Firestorm 506 before you now. Firefly’s sire Firemaker is well known as one of Thomas Swisser Sweet 1764 or ZSA ZSA most powerful sons that has produced many quality progeny. And on the maternal side Firefly goes back to one of the great donors JC Maggie, a perfect uddered donor.

Only during the Charolais In The Rockies Sale does the Cobb Ranch offer one of the most exciting choices of the herd. The buyer of this lot will get to select one and only one bred heifer from over 100 head from this awesome “closed herd” group of broody bred heifers. For over 50 years this “one-iron brand” herd has remained closed and developed from within. You will be amazed at what is available to select from. These bred heifers are due to calve as always in February and March and you may wait until they have calved out so you are really getting your choice of pairs! Selection must be completed by May 15th, 2017. This offering has only happened in Denver once a year and following is what it has sold for a few times; $7,500, $16,000, $7,750, $7,100 so be prepared. One more added benefit; you will get to experience one of the most beautiful ranches in Montana and take home your next masterpiece!

Another “only once a year” offering, but with a little different twist. Selling will be the Choice of the Hebbert Ranch Bred Heifers and the Bred Cows! That’s right, we will offer the buyer’s choice of either set of breds and then that buyer can double the bid and take one from both groups or pick one and then we will offer the other group. Some of the breed’s most astute breeders have actively bid upon and bought this offering each and every year including Legacy Cattle, Lindskov-Thiel, 8 Story, Eaton, Sandmeier, Schurrtop, Silver Spur, Peterson, Hassebrook & Wright. What does this choice sell for you ask, well the last few years; $10,500, $9,000, $13,500, $13,000, $8,000, $8,000, $7,750, enough said?

Selling Buyers Choice of One Bred Cow and One Bred Heifer

Over 350 mature bred cows will comprise this first group, all spring calving females. 140 head of bred heifer make up this group, all spring calving heifers.

What makes this offering even more appealing, you can wait till most have calved out and can select a cow/calf pair. There is not much risk here, they calve them out, you can select a bull or heifer calf at side, you can see how they milk, it all makes for a wise investment. The Hebberts would like this selection to be made by May 1, 2017, so they can move the pairs out to grass for the summer. Come and enjoy the Hebbert hospitality in the Sandhills of Nebraska, get in the pickup to look or saddle up and welcome to the Hebbert Charolais!

Selling Choice of Two Bred Heifers

The last two years in Denver we had the privilege of selling bred heifers from the DeBruycker Charolais program that Jeremy & Kate Roberts had selected from that herd, showed them around the country in the fall and then brought them to Denver for the Charolais In The Rockies Sale. Pictured are those three heifers. They sold for $9,000, $9,500 & $11,000! This past summer the Roberts were in the middle of moving their house and location and it just didn’t work out to do that, so this year you the buyer get to go to DeBruycker Charolais and make your own selection! There are 400 head of spring calving bred heifers from which to choose. WE WILL SELL TWO CHOICES! You can wait until April 1 (The DeBruycker 33rd Annual Bull Sale date) to make your selections, so most will be calved out. Since you get to choose from the pairs only heifer calf pairs will be offered. The prominent sires of most of these heifers are; BHD Zen X270 P, BHD Zeus X3041, CJC Mr President T122 P, JDJ Equity Z370 P, JDJ Maximo A18 P, DS Mr Big Cigar W20, BHD Isotope Z414 P and LHD Matrix Y1270. The majority are bred to; BHD Zeus X3041, LT Ledger 0332 P, BHD Zen X270 P, CJC Trademark H45, CJC Mr President T122 P and BHD Perseus B65 P. There is “donor” potential lurking within this outstanding set of bred heifers, don’t pass one by.
