About the Bulls

The bulls have all been fed together. Our goal was to average a 3.3# A.D.G. as we believe that fat bulls are not practical. The bulls have been vaccinated with 8 way, Cattle Master 4 (or equivalent), One Shot (or equivalent), Fusogard, Myco-Bac B, and Inforce 3. All bulls have been wormed with Dectomax poured with Clean Up II and have been fertility and P.A.P. tested. All bulls Trich and PI-BVD tested negative. Average daily gain and scrotal circumference will be available on sale day. Genetic Defects - we have searched all pedigrees to the best of our ability and all bulls selling are free from any known defects.

Bulls traveling to UT, WY, NM, and ID - All “Pot of Gold” bulls will have been tested once for trichomoniasis, found negative, and ready to haul sale day. The veterinarian will write a health and entry permit for you. Bulls traveling to AZ will require further testing that will take extra time to get results.

Hauling of Bulls/Feed - All bulls may be hauled directly from the sale or can be delivered to a central location as needed. Bulls can be fed at Sutton Farm and Feedlot for $5.00 per day until April 1st. “Pot of Gold” can help with these arrangements but the owner of bull(s) will be responsible for all vet costs, feed costs, and liability on the bull(s). For information or pickup from Sutton Farm and Feedlot call Bill Sutton at (970) 433-8126.

Dear Fellow Beef Producers,

Welcome to the 32nd annual “POT OF GOLD” Gelbvieh and Balancer Bull Sale!

We hope last year went well and you had enough moisture to make adequate hay and pasture. As ranchers, we are always striving for a better bottom-line each year, but run into challenges with cattle markets, weather, fuel and feed prices. Almost everything we do to make a profit in the cattle business is affected by circumstances we have little or no control over, except one thing – the genetics you use in your herd!

For example, just a 20 pound weaning weight difference influenced by the genetics in calves from one bull to another bull on 25 calves is 500# x $1.70/# is $850 in the first year. Remember if you keep his replacement heifers, they too may add pounds to their offspring from his genetic influence. Gelbvieh influenced cattle tend to stay in the herd longer, have the ability to thrive at high elevations, and have been proven to raise calves that are a higher percentage of the cow’s mature weight than other breeds. A great disposition is a profit trait and Gelbvieh cattle have good dispositions.

Please look over the offering and give us a call so we can help you find the bulls that will add the genetic value you are desiring. As always, these bulls have been through a lot of selection pressure to bring you only the good ones on sale day.

The bulls will be in the sale pens the day before the sale at Jim’s Auction Barn, but feel free to go by the feed pen behind the sale barn anytime and walk through the bulls or give us a call and we will meet you there. Videos of the bulls can be seen at www.gelbviehbulls.net one week before the sale. The sale starts at 12 noon (MST) on Friday the 24th of February right after a complimentary lunch.

If weather is a problem, leave your trailer at home until you can pick up your bulls or arrangements can be made to have them delivered. Bulls can be left at the feedlot after the sale to grow more and to keep them in a more convenient place than your ranch (until April 1st.) Just make arrangements with us at the sale. Calving and just can’t make the sale? Go to www.DVAuction.com and sign up ahead of the sale to bid on-line, or as always you can leave a bid with us. Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the sale!

Sincerely, “Pot of Gold” Bull Sale

Combines growth and milk information to predict the weaning weight performance of calves from a sire’s daughters.

EPD Definitions

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. This EPD can be vital to a rancher looking to decrease the amount of calves pulled in his herd.

Impacting Profit with Gelbvieh and Balancer® Females

Milk (Milk): The genetic ability of a sire’s daughters to produce milk expressed in pounds of weaning weight.

EPDs Abbreviations & Explanations

Gelbvieh and Balancer® cattle offer maternal superiority through increased longevity, added fertility and more pounds of calf weaned per cow exposed. In addition, Gelbvieh and Balancer females offer a small mature cow size, more maternal milk and reach puberty at an earlier age.

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. This 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.

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. The stayability EPD is one of the best measures currently available to compare a bull’s ability to produce females with reproductive longevity.

CED = calving ease direct TM = total maternal BW = birth weight CEM = daughters calving ease WW = weaning weight RE = ribeye area YW = yearling weight MB = marbling MILK = milk FPI = feeder profit index

ST = stayability

Birth weight (BW): Predicts the difference, in pounds, for birth weight of the calf.

TM = Combines growth and milk info. to predict the weaning weight performance of calves from a sire’s daughters

Weaning weight (WW): Predicts the difference, in pounds, for weaning weight (adjusted to age of dam and a standard 205 days of age). This is an indicator of growth from birth to weaning.

U.S. Meat Animal Research Center data shows Gelbvieh females have the smallest mature cow size of the four major Continental breeds. The Gelbvieh breed was the only breed in the study to reduce mature cow sizeat an average of 1,382 pounds Gelbvieh-sired females had the lowest fiveyear-old cow weight.

This reduced mature cow-size allows for puberty to be reached at an earlier age, which leads to calving earlier in the season and producing a calf at a younger age. These females are able to wean heavier calves while still maintaining low birth weights and a tight calving interval year after year.

Yearling weight (YW): Predicts the expected difference, in pounds, for yearling weight (adjusted to a standard 365 days of age). This is an indicator of growth from birth to yearling.

Ribeye area (REA): Differences in ribeye area in inches between the 12th and 13th rib. Greater ribeye areas are preferable.

Smaller numbers = fewer days from breeding to calving CED = calving ease, how sire’s calves will calve larger numbers = easier calving CEM = how daughters of sire will calve larger numbers = easier calving

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.

Gelbvieh and Balancer females also excel in stayability, which is the probability a bull’s daughters will remain in the cow herd until at least six years of age. With the high costs associated with the development or purchase of replacement females, sustained reproduction is essential in a herd.

For more information: www.gelbviehbulls.net Click on BREED INFO then to “Understanding EPD’s and How to Use Them ”.

How To Use EPDs

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.

U.S. MARC data, along with American Gelbvieh Association genetic trends, prove that today’s Gelbvieh and Balancer cows are highly productive, offering increased longevity, more manageable mature cow weights, early puberty, quiet disposition and have the ability to calve unassisted while delivering consistent growth.

570# divided by 220 days = 2.59#/day 2.59# per day x 205 days = 531#

531# + 80# (birth weight) = 661#

With stayability and cow productivity being important factors in cowcalf profitability, adding Gelbvieh and Balancer maternal influence through a crossbreeding program is a great option for commercial producers.

EPDs are used to compare sires within a breed. Environment is removed so bulls that were raised differently can still be compared.

Information Regarding DILUTER FREE: No gray calves when mating a diluter free bull to black or gray cows. All off spring will be black or red. 205 Wt. - This is the weaning weight adjusted to 205 days of age. For example: a bull weighs 650# at 220 days of age with an 80# BW 650# - 80# = 570# (weight gained in 220 days)

BW, WW, YW, Milk, and TM are all expressed in pounds. The bigger the number, the more pounds you can expect.

An age of dam adjustment is added so that the older cows or heifers can be compared to the average cow. These 205 day weights are figured by the animal’s respective breed office. These adjusted numbers are useful for within herd comparison where environmental factors are the same.

Scrotal Circumference is a measurement taken to help determine if a bull’s heifers calves will reach puberty earlier than any other bull’s and also sperm production is directly proportional to scrotal size. As of now there is no adjustment for age, but a 32 cm scrotal for a one year old and 36 cm for a two year old is a good standard.

Example: Bull A = BW of 3.2, WW of 68 Bull B = BW of -0.4, WW of 56 Bull A’s calves would be expected (on average) to weigh 3.6 pounds more than bull B’s calves at birth. Bull A’s calves would be expected (on average) to weigh 12 pounds more than Bull B’s calves at weaning. If a bull had 100 calves born to him the average performance of those calves would equal his EPDs.

P.A.P. or Pulmonary Artery Pressure is an indication of a bull’s genetic ability to tolerate high altitudes. The higher the P.A.P score the lower the altitude the bull should be maintained at. Bulls that delvelop brisket may or may not have a genetic problem, but may be the result of an environmental influence such as sickness, feed, or stress.

GENOMIC ENHANCED EPDs

All bulls have been DNA tested and have Genomically Enhanced EPDs for the most accurate EPDs available!

More Informed Genetic Selection Decisions: Purchasing bulls with genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs) allows commercial producers to make selection decisions with less risk due to an increase in the accuracy of a non-parent animal’s EPDs. The addition of genomic data to an EPD is comparable to adding another source of information, like progeny or pedigree records. Specifically on lowly heritable traits, such as reproductive traits, genomic data has the potential to greatly increase the accuracy of an EPD prediction and can be demonstrated.

*When selecting an animal based on a PAP measurement other factors besides those listed above should be considered such as genetics or pedigree, PAP EPD’s , Systolic/Diastolic pressures, breed and previous illness.

*Special consideration should be given to the amount of time the animal was exposed to elevation (>5500 ft) prior to testing. The predictability and repeatability of the PAP measurement improves with longer the exposure to higher elevation (minimum of 4 weeks is required).

*This chart is based on animals greater than 10 months of age. Testing older animals (>12 months) results in a higher predictive and repeatability measurement.

*Testing of younger animals (<12months) may result in a greater variability to the predictive and repeatability measurement.

*Repeatable or Repeatability percent—this is a term used to give strength to a given PAP score predicting that If a retest PAP was carried out later in life then the score would be close to or within the same category as the original measurement.

*Repeatable or Repeatability percent—this is a term used to give strength to a given PAP score predicting that If a retest PAP was carried out later in life then the score would be close to or within the same category as the original measurement. For example; a PAP measurement taken below 4000 feet only has a 40% repeatable percent meaning that a repeat test only has a 40% chance of staying within the same risk category as the original test.

*Predictive Value—this term is closely related to repeatability percent but specifically says that the original score can accurately predict what that animal will retest in a higher elevation.

*Risk—Defined as the likelihood of an animal developing pulmonary hypertension themselves or being at risk for having a genetic predisposition for the disease

BIRTH WEIGHT

The “Pot of Gold” bulls have been vaccinated, poured, fed, tested, and are ready to go to work on sale day but they are not mature bulls and are still growing. Bulls do not need to be fat at turn out, but you do want bulls that are healthy and have enough condition to use as a reserve when they are turned out and spend all their time chasing cows and not eating as they should. Yearling bulls may lose more than 100 pounds during their first breeding season so it is important to adequately feed them after servicing cows so that they are in good shape for the next breeding season.

Description and information related to the bull.

ADJUSTED WEANING WEIGHT Discussed on inside of front cover

Quality vitamins, minerals, and salt should be available year around and a high copper supplement used in areas that are deficient in copper whether at home or in the high country. Often times bulls that come home thin in the fall have not obtained adequate nutrition from the late summer feeds that are drying up. A constant supply of vitamins and minerals is essential for maintaining weight and growth.

PULMONARY ARTERY PRESSURE

Discussed on inside of front cover

STAYABILITY

Higher numbers means daughters should stay in herd longer.

TOTAL MATERNAL

Yearling bulls should not be kept or fed with older bulls because there is a greater chance of injury and the younger bulls can not compete getting to the feed bunk. Allow them adequate space in the pasture or in a pen for exercise. In the winter provide good bedding and windbreaks and in the summer shade and fly control.

Combines growth and milk information to predict the weaning weight performance of calves from a sire’s daughters.

It is best to use yearling bulls for a maximum of 60 days in the breeding pasture. Check frequently for injury, their servicing ability, and body condition. If at all possible do not put yearling bulls in the same breeding pasture as mature or bigger bulls.

Impacting Profit with Gelbvieh and Balancer® Females

Gelbvieh and Balancer® cattle offer maternal superiority through increased longevity, added fertility and more pounds of calf weaned per cow exposed. In addition, Gelbvieh and Balancer females offer a small mature cow size, more maternal milk and reach puberty at an earlier age.

U.S. Meat Animal Research Center data shows Gelbvieh females have the smallest mature cow size of the four major Continental breeds. The Gelbvieh breed was the only breed in the study to reduce mature cow sizeat an average of 1,382 pounds Gelbvieh-sired females had the lowest fiveyear-old cow weight.

This reduced mature cow-size allows for puberty to be reached at an earlier age, which leads to calving earlier in the season and producing a calf at a younger age. These females are able to wean heavier calves while still maintaining low birth weights and a tight calving interval year after year.

Gelbvieh and Balancer females also excel in stayability, which is the probability a bull’s daughters will remain in the cow herd until at least six years of age. With the high costs associated with the development or purchase of replacement females, sustained reproduction is essential in a herd.

U.S. MARC data, along with American Gelbvieh Association genetic trends, prove that today’s Gelbvieh and Balancer cows are highly productive, offering increased longevity, more manageable mature cow weights, early puberty, quiet disposition and have the ability to calve unassisted while delivering consistent growth.

With stayability and cow productivity being important factors in cowcalf profitability, adding Gelbvieh and Balancer maternal influence through a crossbreeding program is a great option for commercial producers.

EPDs Abbreviations & Explanations

American Gelbvieh Association

Maternal Superiority

Dams of Merit and Dams of Distinction Honors

CED = calving ease direct TM = total maternal BW = birth weight CEM = daughters calving ease WW = weaning weight RE = ribeye area

YW = yearling weight MB = marbling MILK = milk FPI = feeder profit index ST = stayability

Did you know that each year the American Gelbvieh Association recognizes females that exemplify the maternal traits that the Gelbvieh and Balancer females are known for?

TM = Combines growth and milk info. to predict the weaning weight performance of calves from a sire ’s daughters

Smaller numbers = fewer days from breeding to calving CED = calving ease, how sire’s calves will calve larger numbers = easier calving CEM = how daughters of sire will calve larger numbers = easier calving For more information: www.gelbviehbulls.net Click on BREED INFO then to “Understanding EPD’s and How to Use Them ”.

The Dam of Merit honor recognizes cows that meet strict selection criteria including early puberty and conception, regular calving intervals and above average weaning weights on at least three calves. As of the cows assessed by November of 2022 only 5.95% of the cows assessed qualify for the Dam of Merit award.

How To Use EPDs

EPDs are used to compare sires within a breed. Environment is removed so bulls that were raised differently can still be compared.

The Dam of Distinction award recognizes cows that meet the same standards, plus exhibiting superior, long-term productivity with at least eight calves. Just over 1% of all the active Gelbvieh and Balancer cows qualify for this elite group.

BW, WW, YW, Milk, and TM are all expressed in pounds. The bigger the number, the more pounds you can expect.

Example: Bull A = BW of 3.2, WW of 68 Bull B = BW of -0.4, WW of 56 Bull A’s calves would be expected (on average) to weigh 3.6 pounds more than bull B’s calves at birth.

Bull A’s calves would be expected (on average) to weigh 12 pounds more than Bull B’s calves at weaning. If a bull had 100 calves born to him the average performance of those calves would equal his EPDs.

WHAT EPDs ARE NOT!

First, EPDs do not indicate how many pounds will be added to a herd ’s average by using a particular bull. Only the differences among bulls are relevant. Second, EPDs can and probably will change on a bull as more information is added In fact, every bull evaluated will get a new set of EPDs the next time the American Gelbvieh Association and American Angus Association conducts another genetic evaluation Third, EPDs can not be compared across all breeds. G elb vieh a nd Ba la n cer E P Ds a r e n ow on t h e sa m e base with Simmental and Red Angus, which means that EPDs for each trait (except stayability) are directly comparable to Ameri can Simmental Association and Red Angus Association of America ’s EPDs. And finally, EPDs are one of several tools that should be used together in order to ensure that you find the best bull for your needs and long term goals. Factors such as fertility, struc tural soundness, muscling, and frame size should also be considered EPDs are the best tools for genetic risk management available today
