SimAngus Genetics Annual Bull Sale March 30, 2019 @ 1:00 pm at the ranch

Lexington, Nebraska Selling 50 Bulls 43 Yearlings 7 Two-Year-Olds


Welcome Dear Ranchers: Thank you for your interest in our bull sale. We’d like to express our appreciation to past buyers and bidders, and briefly share information about the partnership between our neighboring Benjamin and Andersen families. Located along the northern edge of the Platte Valley in Central Nebraska, together we run roughly 700 spring calving cows, 300 of which are registered SimAngus seedstock and the remainder are mostly commercial Angus. The goals of our operation include production of advanced hybrid Angus-Simmental seedstock for bull and bred heifer customers, as well as efficient, high performance, profitable fed cattle (and carcasses) through retained ownership. For 20 consecutive years, Darr Feedlot, Inc. has custom-fed our cattle, with individual animal carcass data collected and submitted to the American Simmental Association (ASA) for inclusion in genetic evaluation. Increasingly, we think premiums will be paid for feeder and fed cattle sired by bull batteries that excel in genetic merit for feedlot and carcass traits. On the cow side, we believe in the value of heterosis combined with superior genetic merit (GE-EPDs) for maternal traits, and achievement of high rates of pregnancy early in the breeding season from sensible levels of feed inputs. Last fall, the seedstock cows achieve 92% pregnancy during the first two cycles (roughly 45 days), less than 6% were later-bred, and just over 2% were open. Along with estrus synchronization and A.I., thanks go out to Overton Veterinary Clinic for their help with our overall herd health program, bull breeding soundness examinations and pregnancy-check services. Regardless of where you buy your bulls, we’d strongly recommend basing your purchase decisions on Genomic Enhanced Expected Progeny Differences (GE-EPDs) and associated economic indexes (i.e. ASA’s All-Purpose Index – API and Terminal Index - TI) that are best suited to your production goals. The GE-EPDs and indexes incorporate all available information, including parentage verified by DNA, the animals’ own performance in contemporary groups evaluated across various traits, as well as DNA marker effects (n = approximately 2,500). It follows that GE-EPDs and indexes backed by all the above information, along with associated rankings in the overall SimAngus population, are included for bulls in this offering. For easy reference, the hybrid SimAngus GE-EPD percentile ranking table is provided below, with approximate averages for bulls offered highlighted in green. As illustrated, our breeding goals seek to optimize ease of calving and maternal traits, with relatively high growth and carcass merit (especially marbling), as well as structural soundness and eye-appeal. Because as calves and post-weaning, these bulls were nutritionally developed without creep and later on higher roughage rations, for most traits their actual expressed performance was less than their inherent genetic potentials. However, we are confident that through the use of genomic technology the bulls are as accurately evaluated as technically possible. At the same time, the bulls were fed so as to not compromise their longevity due to the sometimes adverse impacts of overfeeding on semen quality, structural soundness, and adapting to life as breeding bulls. We know you have many choices as to where to buy your bulls. Our goal is to offer superior genetics at fair prices, to favorably impact your profitability and quality of life. Thanks again for your interest in our program. Sincerely, Ralph and Kent

EPD

Top notch growth and grade – 10% YW & Marb - backed by 106 gain, 111 WW and 119 IMF ratios. Out of a high-production, firstcalf heifer. This bull’s sire, Granite, ranks in top 20% of the Angus population for low dry matter intake and sensible mature cow size (wt. and ht.), while Xavier (maternal grandsire) ranks in top 1% for Stayability – designed to combine feed and reproductive efficiency.
