WELCOME TO OUR 14TH ANNUAL SUN COUNTRY BULL & FEMALE SALE Since we started this sale, we have had the same goal, that is, to provide breeding stock that can work for commercial and purebred breeders alike. This year’s consignment of bulls and heifers have been culled numerous times, with special emphasis placed on structural soundness, so that only the very best are being offered. I can honestly say that this will be the deepest set of breeding age bulls and heifers we have ever offered. Many things in our world have changed in the past year. I think we would all agree that the Covid pandemic has affected us all in many different ways. Fortunately, this has not affected our cattle, and they have continued to do their job and do it well. When it came time to start to plan for this year’s sale, we were uncertain as to whether we would still be able to still have a crowd attend our sale. We have decided to still have all the sale cattle available for viewing at Johnstone Auction Mart for a couple days prior to the sale and on sale day. If you can travel to Moose Jaw prior to the sale and go through the sale cattle, we will be able to assist you. Our sale representatives and sale staff will also be able to answer any questions you have. A few years ago, we started offering some replacement heifers in this sale. They have been a popular addition, and many of them have gone on to become excellent breeding females in herds across Canada and the US. The heifers selling this year are the same. They can work most anywhere! We are pleased to have DV Auction providing the live broadcast of our sale again this year. They will have any additional information and the videos of the cattle on their website as well. We are again offering to take these bulls and heifers back to our farms and keep them for a reasonable length of time until shipping arrangements can be made. If you can pick your bull or heifer up immediately after the sale, we will offer you a discount of $100 on your purchase. At the time of printing this sale catalog, the Covid restrictions only allow 30 people to attend be in the stands during the sale and masks are mandatory. If you are planning on coming to our sale, we will be reserving seats on a first come basis. We welcome anyone to come before the sale to view our offering. We will also be offering a complimentary lunch before the sale for those who wish to attend. We will also have videos, current weights, scrotal measurements and ultrasound data on our yearling bulls posted on our websites in the near future. Grant Alexander (for the Sun Country group

Here is the seventh bull from Rene Dottie 72R that she has produced and he may be her best one yet. He is super sound in every way and is a true beef bull. He is THF, PHAF, DSF, Myostatin free and is homozygous polled. It has been pure delight to watch him and his paternal brother 12H develop since birth, and I change my mind regularly as to which one I like the best. BW 102

Bull Warranty We guarantee to provide you with a sound, fertile bull, capable of servicing a reasonable number of cows. In the event that your bull is a non-satisfactory breeder, the seller will not, under any circumstances, be responsible for more than the original selling price of any bull sold in the sale. The consignors will not provide replacement or credit for any physical injury or mismanagement. Therefore, we stress the importance of insurance on your bull. An insurance agent will be available on sale day. We also realize that breeding season is also a very busy time on most farms. We would ask that you check your new bulls periodically, so that if there are problems, we can hear about them sooner rather than later. This is equally important for the bull buyer as well. If your bull is not breeding, or becomes injured, it is important to resolve the problem as soon as possible in the breeding season.

How Much Can you Afford to Pay for a Better Bull? Increase in pounds per calf from a top performance bull X Number of cows bred to him each year X Number of years to keep the bull X Expected selling price of calves = Additional dollars you can pay for a better bull Example: A bull that will add an additional 30 lbs to the weaning weight of each of his calves mated to 25 cows per year for 4 years and if you sell the calves at $2.50/ lb 30X 25 = 750 lbs x 4 years=3000 additional lbs X $2.50/ lb = $7500.00 This bull is worth $7500 more than the average bull who will keep your weaning weights the same.

March 9, 2021


Terms of Sale Bidding: Each animal will be sold to the highest bidder. Bidding Disputes: The auctioneer will settle any disputes as to bids, and his decision on such matters shall be final. Terms: The terms of the sale are cash, unless previous arrangements have been made with the owner. The right of property shall not pass until after settlement is made. All settlements will be made with the clerks of the sale immediately following the conclusion of the sale and before any cattle will be released from the sale facility. Purchaser’s Risk: Each animal becomes the risk of the purchaser as soon as sold. Animals will be fed, watered and cared for at the purchaser’s risk for a reasonable time. If leaving your bull in our care we strongly encourage you as the new owner to insure him. Insurance: A representative of a major insurance company will be present to care for insuring cattle. Certificate of Registry: A certificate of registry and transfer will be furnished for each animal. Announcements: Changes of information contained in this catalogue relating to the animals offered for sale will be announced from the auction box and such announcements shall take precedence. Health: All cattle will be in excellent health. Breeder’s Guarantee: All animals sold are guaranteed breeders by the owner. Any animal that has not proven itself a breeder within six months after date of sale, if in healthy condition, may be returned to the seller at buyer’s expense. The seller reserves the privilege of trying for a period of six months to prove the animal a breeder. The seller at his option may either return the purchase price to the buyer or replace the animal with another of equal quality in full settlement of ALL claims. All complaints regarding breeding difficulties must be reported in writing by the buyer to the seller within the specified time above and any animal returned must be free from disease and in good health. Retained Interest: In the event that an owner wishes to reserve the right to collect semen from any bull in the sale, it will be announced prior to the sale and from the auction block as well. Semen will be collected at the buyer`s convenience and at the seller`s expense, and it will only be available for use in the seller`s herd. Liability: Neither owners, sale manager, clerks, nor anyone connected with the sale assumes any responsibility, legal or otherwise for damage of any kind. Contract: The above terms and conditions shall constitute a contract between the buyer and seller of each animal sold.

The “new” North American Shorthorn Genetic Evaluation is now finally completed and you will notice a difference between today’s EPDs and those in past years. These EPDs were completed by the American Simmental Association as part of their multi- breed genetic evaluation. These EPDS now have the same “base” as Simmental, Red Angus, Gelbvieh and a growing number of other breeds. As a result, our EPDs can now be compared with these breeds. This means that bull and female buyers can search for genetics from multiple breeds and compare the performance profiles against one another.

Birth Weight (BW)

At the basic level, birth weight is nothing more than an indicator trait for calving ease, but the emphasis on birth weight can be overdone. Economically, over selecting for low birth weights can take us in the wrong direction; cattle still sell by the pound. Use BW EPD in conjunction with calving ease. Phenotypic traits like length of body, shoulder design, head shape, circumference of bone and even frame score play a significant role in determining birth weights and calving ease.

Milk

Weaning Weights (WW)

Put simply, weaning weight is the ability of a bull’s calf to dry off, stagger to its feet, and grow like mad. Finding a sire with a strong WW that also excels in other economically relevant traits important to your breeding program is a key element to success.

Yearling Weight (YW)

This trait is economically important since it is more indicative of growth potential through market weights taken early in the animals life. Single trait selection for YW can lead to serious problems that can affect bottom line profit. Mature must be monitored when selecting a bull for performance via YW EPD. Cow maintenance costs, calving difficulty, and even breeding problems can result. YW EPDs can be very influential if you understand your environment conditions or if you are retaining ownership in your calves from birth to slaughter.

A bull’s Milk EPD is determined by his daughter’s ability to wean heavier calves than her contemporaries. Just because a cow weans a heavier calf each year does not necessarily mean her Milk EPD should be the highest in the herd. The performance of her calf can also be attributed to the dam’s or sire’s growth genetics or a number of environmental factors. Milk EPDs can be too high for your environmental conditions especially in severe environmental conditions and can have a negative impact on rebreeding rates.
