Jock and I would like to say thank you to all our customers!! Hearing of your success with our genetics is what keeps us raising registered cattle. We had a decent year moisture and weather wise. This year’s offering includes many embryo transfer calves that will allow you to purchase many full brothers. There are several sons out of our Turning Point bull (who is deceased) that just keeps impressing us with his calves’ ability to perform, maintain eye appeal and their overall do-ability. One of his son WCS EL DORADO sold to Accelerated Genetics and Hart Simmentals and we retained his full brother WCS McClintock two years ago, their sons and daughters look impressive. We strive to raise bulls with outcross genetics to our breed that will excel in all areas of the beef industry. I believe this will become more important with lower calf prices that we have all seen this year. Bulls that sire more pounds will play a major role in your bottom dollar. We can assist you with the marketing of your calves as well. The Simmental and SimAngusTM cattle perform well on the rail, in the feed yard, and as momma cows for us and our customers. MARC research shows that hybrid vigor allows the cows to maintain their condition, rebreed quicker and produce more pounds of calf per cow exposed than straight bred cows. The research shows they will generate over $100 profit, they have a 25% increased lifetime productivity, and stay in production 38% longer. We are very proud of the quality, not quantity of bulls we offer. We cull 2/3 of the calf crop to leave only the best. The mothers to these bulls are not pampered or given any special treatment over the commercial cows. We believe they need

to perform under the same environment and perform at a higher standard. We select for low to moderate BWs with exceptional growth, maternal and carcass traits. The bulls are developed so they will not melt, will continue to grow, and stay sound for you during the breeding season. They will be semen tested, and we will work with you on wintering. We highly recommend purchasing insurance on your investment, and we can assist you in finding a good company to work with. We offer a sight-unseen guarantee. The bulls this year are very impressive in their genetic makeup and phenotype. There is a wide selection from heifer bulls to performance bulls. WCS is very proud of this group of bulls. It pays to own good bulls that will add pounds to your calf crop and leave tremendous females. Stop by and take a look or give us a call to visit about the bulls or anything else. Our website is located on breedingcattlepage.com. Videos will be available on most of the bulls. Also, see us on facebook in the near future. Ultrasound data will be available on the bulls as well!!!

It’s simple: give us a call to discuss what you are looking for in your next herd sire. We know our cowherd very well and the genetics strengths of each and every bull offered. Together we will discuss which bulls will work best in your operation. We will personally hand pick and purchase your bulls for you within and quite often below your price range. Your next herd bull purchase is as close as your phone. Please contact Lee or Dave for more info on the program.
