Simmentals 38th in 2018

Bull & Female Sale Friday,

March 2, 2018 1:00 p.m.

Johnstone Auction Mart Ltd. Moose Jaw, Sask. 4 miles West of Moose Jaw on Trans-Canada Highway


FOREWORD Welcome to LaBatte Simmentals 38th Annual Spring Bull & Female Sale on Friday, March 2nd, 2018 at Johnstone Auction Mart, 4 miles west of Moose Jaw, SK on #1 highway. Can’t believe it’s been twelve months already that we were writing footnotes for the catalogue. How time does fly! Ourselves and Meadow Acres would really like to thank all the bidders and buyers from our past sales for the continued support and effort you make each year to attend our sale. It is very much appreciated. Again in the fall of 2017 we saw an upward swing of cattle prices. Customer’s steers were bringing $1200-$1500 per head and the Simmental heifers were in high demand. In the commercial bred heifer sales Simmental and Simmental cross heifers were definitely topping the sales and bringing big premiums for their owners. The Simmental breed is in high demand with the commercial industry right now. I think as a breed we have listened to our customers, made changes, and are raising the kind of cattle that the commercial industry is looking for. The breed offers high maternal traits, milk and muscle, superior performance and carcass value. Our bull sale this year, along with Meadow Acres Farms, will consist of over 90 bulls in total. They are polled, thick, meaty, red and black bulls and a handful of red goggle eyed fullblood Fleckvieh influenced bulls, the kind that will make those baldies on your Black and Red Angus cows. The bulls are sired by some of the industry’s leading sires such as IPU Red Deputy, Spark Plug, Westcott, Royal Red, Priority, El Tigre, Liner 56U and French Attack in the fullbloods. We are always looking for genetics that will produce the right kind of bulls for our seedstock producers and commercial customers. Bulls that have fleshing ability, lots of middle and top, high maternal traits, good temperaments and are structurally sound on their feet and legs. We will also be offering 16 top open replacement heifers, red and black, eight of each. I believe this is the best set of open purebred replacement heifers we’ve ever offered. Many of them are baldies. In the black division many of the heifers are sired by our new herd bull, MRK Priority 3C, a solid black, blaze faced Vision son that we are really excited about. He’s a massive, deep bodied, thick made bull with all the his EPDs ranking in the top 50% of the breed. We’re really excited to see his females in production next year. The reds are highlighted by daughters of the red baldy bull Spark Plug, an outcross bull that is going to have a big influence in our breeding program. If you are unable to attend the sale, give myself or Meadow Acres Farms or any of the sale staff a call to have the sale offering evaluated for you. We can be reached the day prior and sale day on our cell phones: Barry 306 815-7900 or Dustin 306 487-7510 or Johnstone Auction Mart at 306 693-4715. If you have questions earlier give us a call on our cells or our home numbers. The sale will also be broadcast live on dlms.ca, so contact Mark Shologan for more information and help getting approved for bidding. His phone number is 780 699-5082. We welcome your visit to our farms anytime to see the bulls and heifers first hand. Come join us Thursday night at the Heritage Inn in our hospitality room for some socializing and laughs. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, March 2nd at Johnstone Auction Mart, Moose Jaw, SK. Join us for a complimentary dinner prior to the sale and also after the sale for some socializing, refreshments and snacks. Best of luck in 2018 and hope to see you sale day. Barry P.S. Grandkids are growing like weeds. Our oldest, Brodyn, just turned 14 in November and is almost six foot tall already. Emry and Jenna, our oldest granddaughters, are starting to play basketball already at the Gladmar High School. The boys are all still playing hockey on three different teams, all in beef 4-H and grain 4-H. The girls are busy with karate and all three travel to Weyburn to take gymnastics. Great to see them involved in sports and full of energy. They make us very proud grandparents.

Homo Polled. We are starting off the 2018 sale with an outstanding calving ease prospect in Lot 1. This Sheriff son has been good right from day one. Wilf Davis purchased his dam for us from Neil Carson and family at the 2016 Harvest Hoedown sale where she was one of the high sellers. 8E’s mother is dark cherry red and very good uddered and has done a great job in raising this special bull. Justice started with a small birth weight of 76lbs, is moderate framed, thick and soggy, has a great hair coat and disposition. We think this young herdbull has a lot of potential as a calving ease specialist, but also as a herdbull with his muscle, capacity and eye appeal.

Homo Polled. A cherry red Dillinger 80B son out of a first calving Sheriff daughter going back to the great Pocahontas 105L cow family. This guy is as long as a freight train, dark dark red, good muscled, very smooth made, homo polled and has a little different pedigree on top for the industry. His dam is perfectly uddered, great pedigreed and going to be a standout cow in the future in our herd. 14E is a sure calving ease bull with his small birth weight, double calving ease pedigree with Dillinger and Sheriff, his smoothness and length. He’s in the top 1% of the breed for calving ease EPD and top 4% for birth weight and top 3% for API. We think this Dillinger son has a great future ahead of him.

Here’s one of the first powerful Westcott sons. This hairy, deep, soggy bull is out of a red blaze faced Lotto daughter going back to the great Pashmenia 403P cow. These Westcott sons are very consistent in type and quality. They are thick, meaty, loose hided cattle that can push the scales down at weaning time.

IPU WESTCOTT 30E PG1217024

IPU LIEUTENANT 24E

Homo Polled and Diluter Free. This bull’s name should be Standout because that’s what he’s been since the day he was born. He looked great as a calf, great at six months and continued on through weaning and still is a standout today. His mother is a great uddered Horizon daughter that is one of our favorite cows. Of the “A” red cows our two favorites have been 21A, the mother of Lieutenant, and 81A, the mother of Red Deputy. 24E himself has an excellent body type, long, big rear quarter, wide topped, loose hided, has great depth and spring of rib, hair and a great disposition. He is a replica of his sire, IPU Red Deputy 25C, but may be just a little more powerful. We’re really happy with our Red Deputy calves. We mostly had heifer calves last spring and they look really good too as you will see by the outstanding Red Deputy daughter 111E (lot 108) that sells in our heifer section of the sale. We believe Lieutenant is one of the best all around red bulls we’ve ever sold.

These 56U cows are so much like the Red Chief cows, as they can produce bull calves that are powerful and loaded with performance. In last year’s sale 202Y’s Vegas son sold to Rocking H Farms, Dan Heather at Biggar, SK and her Red Zone son sold in the 2016 sale to Frank & Kim Arnal at Eastend, SK. Westcott 30E was the #1 index bull for weaning weight in his contemporary group. He should sire a group of calves that are high in performance and quality.

This calf was an eye catcher from a young age and one of the favorites when he was a baby. When his Marksman dam came into heat the cows rode her hard and she broke her back and had to be destroyed. Very unfortunate as she was a really good cow. We put 87E on a Holstein cow that already had two other twin calves on her. So that cow raised three calves, one being 87E. He did very well as he was a really good calf and still is. He’s dark red, really smooth made and has a lot of potential.

This dark red Westcott bull comes out of an outstanding Gunner cow going back to the old matron Noremac 16M. We flushed 89W successfully this summer and will be putting in some of those embryos this spring. A maternal sister to 95E, a beautiful Red Zone daughter, sold in the 2016 Simmsational sale to Quinn Wilson for $25,000. We think one of the best heifers we ever sold. In our 2014 bull sale we sold an Horizon son of 89W to Craig Bendickson of Gladmar that I thought was the buy of the sale. Craig has been extremely happy with him and said you can pick his calves out as they are really good. We think this bull should sire some outstanding calves. His daughters should be kept for replacement heifers as his dam and granddam are some of the best.

This is a really tanky Westcott son that has a lot of rib shape, capacity, muscle and top. He has a great hair coat and is very stylish. He’s one that a lot of people ask about. In our 2016 bull sale Frischholz Farms from Minton bought a good Red Zone son of 101E’s dam 84Z who is a blaze faced, good uddered Hot Iron daughter. With 101E’s capacity, big butt and style we think he’s the kind that’s going to sire those soggy steer calves and great replacement females that are so much in demand today. We are still waiting for his homo polled test results but will have them by sale day.

She’s just had her 13th calf on the farm on January 19th. Never missed a year. That’s fertility! She has sons from past sales working in some of the really good commercial operations of RBD Ranch, SK, Frischholz Farms, SK and Berndt Ranch, ND. This Red Zone son would raise a great set of replacement females that would last and produce.

A super soggy Spark Plug bull out of one of our favorite cows. His Specialist dam is a big time cow. She’s dark red, good uddered, deep, deep and very broody. In last year’s sale her son out of Bartender was one of our high sellers going to the great commercial operation Diamond K Cattle Co. and in 2015 her good son sold to O’Hara Farms in Ceylon, SK. This bull is just like his mother, soggy, loose made, great hair coat and easy fleshing. Would I like to feed a pen full of steers sired by this awesome Spark Plug son. He’s the type of bull we’re trying to produce for our good commercial customers, the money making kind.

Another high performing Spark Plug bull with a nice blaze face. Spark Plug was the high selling bull that ourselves and Circle 7 Ranch & Sunrise Simmentalspurchased for $95,000 out of the Springcreek bull sale in 2016. He was stout, sound, thick and had a real presence about him. Also an outcross pedigree sired by the polled full Fleckvieh bull Anchor D Viper and out of a really good, moderate framed Crosby female. He was homo polled and half Fleckvieh. We’re happy with his offspring giving us some baldy bulls and heifers that are good as you will see throughout the sale in the red division, black division and the heifer calves.

Homo Polled. A red Springcreek Liner 56U son out of a tremendous T-Bone X Barbi daughter 86U. We bought this T-Bone daughter from Bob Anderson at Cremona, AB as a heifer calf and she has been one of our favorites. She’s produced outstanding females and this will be her third bull to go through the bull sale. Her past two bulls have sold to Storle Farms, Lake Alma, SK and Blackwell Bros at Assiniboia, SK. 144E has just a little star on his head, is smooth made and correct. I would be hoping for a large group of heifer calves to keep for replacements off this bull. With the Barbi cow in the pedigree and the great females 56U makes, it would be quite a replacement pen.

Both Homo Polled. Truly a sale feature selling these two embryo transplant full brothers by Springcreek Spark Plug and our #1 donor cow IPU 52N Ms Pocahontas 2Y, one of the most awesome cows we have ever owned in 47 years of breeding Simmental. We could write a book about her but I’ll try not to. She’s a Red Liner 56U daughter out of the great Pocahontas 52N cow that is a full sister to Pocahontas 68M. When we sold a great number of cows to Meadow Acres Farms we had first pick and it was Pocahontas 2Y. She’s a beautiful red, moderate female with lots of capacity, middle, an excellent udder and just a true brood cow. At the recent Agribition 50-50 sale the 2Y embryos topped the embryo lots, as we sold 5 Captain Scream X Pocahontas 2Y embryos for $3450 each to Robb Farms at Maidstone. These were the only embryos ever offered for sale off her. There’s a great opportunity in these two bulls with their outcross pedigree, being homo polled, their outstanding EPD profile and their being top quality themselves and out of one of the elite donor cows in the breed. We have sold four sons of Pocahontas 2Y through this very sale. The Simulater bull to Maxwell Simmentals and Clifford Land & Cattle, the $32,000 Dillinger bull to Kinn Simmentals in ND, who we use in our own program, the $20,000 El Tigre son that’s doing such a great job for Jean-Francois LeBlond in Quebec and her son from last year, an exceptional Captain Black son that sold to Solberg Livestock, MT. And now these two great Spark Plug bulls, 160E and 166E. They were born a day apart and weighed 94lbs and 98lbs at birth. The160E bull has a beautiful blaze down his forehead, is long, smooth, thick and correct and has an abundance of style. The 166E bull is solid colored, full of meat and muscle and is great haired and they both have great dispositions.

The only red El Tigre we have in the sale this year and he is a good one. His dam, the Red Knight 172R cow, is sending her fifth bull to the sale. Two full brothers to 178E sold to Sheldon Virostek, AB and Hanford Simmentals, Snowflake, MB. A really good Horizon son sold to RBD Ranch at Milestone, SK and in the 2011 sale a 680S son sold to Rendezvous Farms at Ste Rose, MB where he went on to produce many bulls that went through their bull sales. El Tigre made a big impact in our breeding program with his outstanding, thick, meaty sons going through the bull sale and now his daughters producing that are great uddered and easy fleshing. This young El Tigre son, 178E, should be one to look at sale day.

In our 2015 sale her bull calf topped our Fullblood division at $20,000 selling to Bar M Simmentals, Jim & Donna Marker, Gillette, WY. In last year’s sale her Westgold Standout son sold to Cliff Barnett, Moose Jaw, SK. This dark red, deep bodied Adonis son will sire some excellent progeny. DNA tested non-diluter which means if you breed black cows to him you won’t get any gray calves, either red or black and probably quite a few baldies or brockle faces.

The sire of 62E, Crossroad Subaru, was the high selling fullblood out of Crossroad’s 2016 sale. We took a crack at buying him but came up a little short. He was thick, deep and well muscled. We were able to obtain some semen on him and have been pleased with the calves. Lots of performance.

28

IPU BLACK WESTCOTT 20E

Homo Polled, Homo Black. Something a little different here. We call him Panda Bear. He is colored like a Hereford but black, not red, and he is “homo” black. We purchased his mother from Czech-Mate Livestock as the high selling black bred heifer out of the Western Harvest sale in December 2016. She is a really good young cow. She was bred to Ultra Mr Combustible, a black baldy bull. When 10E was born unassisted we were a little surprised with his color. But he grew into quite a bull. He started off at 88lbs and had an actual weaning weight of 980lbs on September 5th. Not bad for a 2 year old dam. This guy would sire some awesome, flashy, high performing steers and sharp replacement heifers. He would really work on a set of black cows. He’s homo polled, homo black and very interesting.

Homo Polled. A big time black Westcott bull! This soggy made, deep bodied, thick made Westcott son has eye appeal, correctness, a great pedigree and performance. He weaned off his Lotto mom at a whopping 990lbs and was #1 adjusted weaning weight bull in his contemporary group. His dam is a great uddered Lotto cow off a beautiful 56U dam. Her last year’s bull calf sold in our 2017 bull sale to Bruce Barber, Biggar, SK and the year before that her Poker Face son sold to Trevor King, Wainwright, AB. With this guy’s pedigree – Westcott, Lotto and Springcreek Liner 56U – we think he will be an outstanding breeding bull.

He is mothered by an exceptional Liner 56U daughter that knows how to raise the good ones. Her first calf sold in our 2016 sale in the heifer division, a three- quarter sister to Black Summit, for $19,000 to Rainbow River Simmentals, Jennilee & Dustin Stewart. She went straight into their flush program. Black Summit is thick, deep, soggy, has a great disposition, big testicles and a super hair coat. Black Summit weaned off his mother on September 5th at 1020lbs, that’s performance! You really need to get in behind this bull to appreciate his stoutness. He’s a bull we plan on using in our own program as we think they don’t get much better than him. He’s homo polled and homo black as an added bonus.

We sold her first daughter through this very sale as on open heifer to Rust Mountain View Ranch in North Dakota for $15,250. In 2016 we sold a baldy black son to Todd Knupp, Weyburn, SK and last year a super Captain Black bull to Solberg Livestock, MT. 21E himself is really attractive, smooth made, thick and meaty.

Homo Polled by parentage. A bull we really like out of an outstanding Springcreek Liner 56U cow we purchased as one of the high sellers in Brian’s 2016 female production sale. Just love this cow, weighs like lead, she’s deep, thick, very attractive and has a great udder. 55E himself is very smooth made, deep ribbed like his mother and has a big hip and quarter. He has just a tick of white on his head and nose. This Spark Plug bull would raise a set of outstanding calves, bulls and steers that would push the scales down and females that would be in very high demand and make great, well uddered cows.

Powerful, powerful best describes this bull. He was the gold medal winner for performance with an actual weaning weight of 1055lbs, a 205 day adjusted weaning weight of 963lbs and was the #1 indexing bull. He has a bigger birth weight but was born unassisted, had lots of vigor and just never stopped growing. His mother, the Elegante cow, is a big, soggy, Black Joker female who, as I write this, just calved. We have two really good daughters of hers in the herd, an El Tigre daughter and a Poker Face daughter. Both are really good young cows with good udders and lots of capacity. This big topped, big butted 56U son would sire some powerful steers and replacement heifers that would bring premiums for his new owner.

This good Priority son is owned by Wade Lund, our long time herdsman. The mother of 67E is a super uddered Liner 56U daughter that goes back to Wade’s original Simmental purchase, CCC Tamale 1U, from Sandra Jeffery at one of the Simmsational sales. 1U had about as perfect an udder as you could get and her 56U daughter is just as impressive. We’re really happy with the Priority bull. We purchased him from Kolton McIntosh at the 2015 Agribition show and bought him privately out of the stall. He’d just been named Reserve Junior Champion Bull Calf. This young son of his is very smooth made with lots of rib and shape. He would sire an outstanding set of heifers and steers for his new owner. His maternal sister in last year’s sale was our high selling open heifer, selling to KT Ranches, Kelowna, BC for $14,750.

This good Captain Black son is stout, long and complete. He would sire a powerful set of steer calves that would excel in the feedlots.

He’s mothered by an excellent Skors Enticer daughter that’s easy to find in the pasture as she’s one of those cows that people say “Who’s that cow?” A great El Tigre son that would really raise some very stylish and saleable progeny.

He weaned off his two year old mother at 935lbs, a pretty good weight for a two year old. And he ranked #2 in his contemporary group for adjusted weaning weight. He would sire quite a group of baldy calves.

Another black baldy bull, sired by Soda Pop 14B, a full brother to the Grand Champion Simmental Female at the Canadian Western Agribition this past year. 132E’s dam is a blaze faced Liner 56U daughter going back to the blaze faced excellent Enticer daughter, 120W. There’s four generations in a row in his pedigree that are all blaze faced. The baldy cattle are becoming very, very popular. The order buyers and feedlot operators like these cattle with a little chrome on them, knowing there is probably some Simmental influence in them to give them the gain-ability and carcass value they’re looking for. And the baldy replacement females definitely bring a premium.

Homo Polled. What a great calving ease prospect this young, solid black Deputy bull is. With IPU Deputy, Cobra and Odin in his pedigree he has calving ease built right in and has a birth weight himself of 76lbs. He ranks in the top 2% of the breed for calving ease and the top 10% of the breed for birth weight EPD. He himself is very deep bodied, good quartered and smooth made. If you want to put hair on your cattle he has got it. Probably the hairiest bull we have ever sold and the right kind of hair. The feedlots love cattle with hair. We think this bull has a lot of future in him and he’s also homo polled as a bonus.

She is the granddam of the R Plus Venom bull that sold through R Plus’ bull sale for $50,000. His dam was purchased at the Simmsational sale from us. She was bred Cobra and the resulting calf was the popular Venom bull. She’s also produced a herdbull for Storle Farms, Lake Alma. We have retained three of her daughters in our own herd. This mid February Priority son has lots of power, is deep and thick and will sire a set of powerful steers and heifers.

Welcome to the 2018 bull sale from all of us at Meadow Acres Simmentals! This is the Fifth year of writing an introduction to this bull sale and with each passing year it is a great opportunity for reflection of where we have been and where we are headed. First, a most sincere thank you to all of our customers. Without you there is none of this! We are honoured that you have made a choice to purchase Meadow Acres Genetics for your operations and we will work with you along the way to ensure that you have the genetics you require and a great experience in customer service. To potential customers, we work tirelessly to ensure we are bringing to you our very best genetics and have confidence in exceptional quality for your investment. It’s always a pleasure to work with Barry and his family and be a part of this sale, which is in its 38th year. Our programs are closely aligned and focused on passion for the cattle business and family based operations. It’s always exciting to see the group of bulls that come together to create one of the most anticipated sales of the spring! The set of bulls we have compiled this year are a group that we are very excited about and extremely proud of. A group that we already knew this time last year were going to be a great set of bulls and seeing them mature and get to sale time is always very satisfying as seedstock producers. There are bulls in the offering that will offer different attributes such as performance, maternal, calving ease etc. This group of bulls brings great consistency and also offers genetic diversity. The Meadow Acres bulls have been on a rigorous herd health plan since birth. We work very closely with a team of veterinarians to establish the most reliable and consistent health protocols for our entire herd. We also work closely with Cargill Nutrition to ensure that our feed is all tested and analyzed to build our TMR ration that develops these bulls on their own natural do-ability. We believe that these bulls have been developed under the right conditions to promote longevity and soundness. Bulls will all be semen tested prior to sale time and are guaranteed. We also invest in colour and polled testing all of the bulls so there is no guess work when selecting the right bull for you. Free delivery is provided and we will take your bull home and care for him until we start delivery. For customers from the United States, our physical location is much closer to you then where our sale is held. We are only 30 minutes north of the North Gate Entry. We are pleased to complete required testing for export and coordinate delivery in a timely and efficient manner. We are more than happy to visit with you in advance of the sale to discuss your herd bull needs and review what bulls would work for you. Please give us a call anytime, or better yet, we welcome you to visit the farm and see for yourself the bulls in their own environment and our operation first hand! All bulls will be videoed and available on our website www.meadowacressimmentals.com or www.cattlevids.ca in February. We have an excellent representation of professional sales staff to assist you in selection if you prefer and the sale will also be broadcast live on DLMS.ca. We thank you for your interest and look forward to seeing you in Moose Jaw on March 2nd. We invite you to join us for lunch prior to the sale and some hospitality afterwards. The Fornwalds

Homo Polled. This guy is really something special! When we were on our way home from trying to buy the Westcott bull, we were disappointed but happy to know we could still utilize him and this guy is exactly what we envisioned we could produce with Westcott. This Westcott/Horizon cross is potent and flat out awesome. We are so excited about this bull and his future within our great breed. We have worked hard to establish “our type” of cattle since starting out in the breed 9 years ago and this guy brings it all together for us. 224E has been a standout since birth, and he has had that herd bull presence to him since he was young. A bull you really have to admire for his overall thickness and how he is so soft made as well. He is huge middled, deep bodied, has excellent shape and structure to his hip and smooth through his shoulder. He carries his thickness and shape so well while being strong topped and he gets out and moves so freely. Overall a super complete bull, soggy made, long bodied and great haired. His mother is MAF Sprinkles 14A, a cow who we were lucky enough to get these calves off of and look forward to building her legacy through them. We are excited to be a part of this guy’s future!

Homo Polled. 64E is a great example of the Westcott sire group and why we are so high on them! This guy is very long bodied, thick and deep made. He is smooth, big nutted and moves out well. A bull you have to admire for this depth of quarter and overall look to him. His cherry red El Tigre mother was our favorite of the sire group as a bred heifer and has done a great job on this guy. She mirrors many of this guy’s qualities; long bodied, deep, attractive, big footed and very good uddered. His maternal granddam is a cow that we flushed and have sold a daughter to Crowe Brothers and have retained all of her other daughters in herd. They have just calved out and have beautiful udders as well.

Homo Polled. It’s easy to see why we are really excited about these Westcott sired cattle, as the consistency that they have, both bulls and females is just awesome! Here is another favourite in the bull pen, as 104E is wide topped and thick made. A bull that has to be appreciated for his depth of body, huge middle, strength of top for his amount of body he has to him and his overall balance. He is good footed and moves out well. A real meat wagon who has an excellent demeanor. What makes this bull even better is his Exciter dam. She is a favourite around here. A moderate female, big bodied, very sound, great uddered and is a consistent producer. We have retained 104E’s maternal sister in herd and have sold maternal brothers to Gord Manz and Sentes Farms. Consistency and predictability is built into this guy for sure.

Here is a bull that is dark red, lots of hair, soggy made, thick and moderate in his build. A bull with a lot of good things about him in his well balanced package. His dam is a big bodied Red Label daughter that milks hard and is sound made. 133E offers up a nice EPD profile with balance between performance and maternal traits.

Homo Polled. 122E is another good looking Westcott son! This bull is thick with tons of middle and softness to him. A bull you really have to admire for the length of spine he has to complement his stoutness. He is nice boned, has large testicles and my favorite part about this guy is the momma cow and cow family that stands behind him. 178A is a hard working cow that has been a real herd bull producer. She is big bodied, big footed and good uddered. She is also a direct daughter of Shamrock 120L which I would say is one of the unsung big time cow families at LaBattes. We have quite a few Shamrock females in our herd and they are wicked! A maternal brother sold to Circle M Farms in 2016.

He is moderate and tanky in his make up, really hairy and very docile. The girls have always had him as a favourite and say he is good because “he has a big butt and big nuts”. I’m sure there aren’t many kids in their school that could talk cattle the way these two girls can!

Homo Polled. We were fortunate enough to obtain a semen package on Deputy from Dusty Kunkel in 2016. We thought he would be a good bull with some versatility to him, good to use on heifers but still able to use on some cows. 92E is an awesome result of breeding a second calver to Deputy. He has always had such a presence about him. He is strong and wide topped, thick and big middled. His mother is a young Marksman daughter that stems back to the Noremac 16M cow as well. She has a heifer that has just calved out bred by Deputy as we were so pleased with this cross. This guy will have lots of friends come sale day!

He is as long as a train, thick and has lots of body to him. A bull you really have to appreciate for his big foot under him and the overall smoothness and extension through his front end.

Homo Polled. 190E is a bull that is hard to fault! This guy is smooth made, yet has jam to him. He is thick and has one of the deepest rib shapes of any bull in the pen. Strong topped, large testicles, structurally sound, long bodied and absolutely wicked haired. You really have to admire how this bull ties it all together and is so soft in his design and free in his movement as well as his EPD profile. He is a result of IVF embryo work we had done on MAF Sprinkles 14A, a Horizon daughter we had sold to Swan Lake. We had some misfortune with her and she is no longer around. It is especially bad misfortune when you see these calves we were able to get. She was a soft made, huge middled, thick female that had a great udder. A female that we are proud to have raised and are excited for these bulls of hers to go and make their mark on the breed. We have a super sweet full sister to this guy in the replacement pen that we are equally excited about!

He is a herd bull to move your program into the future. He is so complete in his design, stout, long bodied, tons of rib shape, large testicles and he gets out and moves so freely. 95E definitely has a herd bull presence to him.

Here is why we were pleased to utilize Cowtown on some of our cowherd! 70E is a bull you really have to appreciate for his natural muscle expression combined with his length of body and deep, soggy build. He was a bull that always caught your attention from a young age and the best part about this guy is his mom. 81X is a picture perfect Simmental cow, long bodied, big middled and a perfect udder. If you keep replacement females this guy should be on your list of considerations as the females on both sides of his pedigree are known for udder structure and quality.

We really believe these Cowtown bulls are the right kind. The only thing you want is more of them! This guy is moderate made, thick, big middle and very complete in his design. 21E is a bull that always catches visitor’s attention and he sure will come sale time as well!

They are easy doing cattle with lots of muscle expression, middle and softness to their design with very good temperaments. 16E fits into this description very well and will be sure to bring the same consistency and do-ability to his progeny.

Homo Polled. In 2016 we sold our lead off Horizon son to Jean-Francois LeBlond, of Quebec, for $27,000. He named him Lampman and we used him a bit ourselves. 17E is a twin who is hairy, stout and moderate. He is strong topped and moves out freely and is smooth made. With a weaning weight EPD in the top 10 percentile and yearling weight in the top 25th percentile as well this bull will sire you some heavy calves no doubt. A maternal brother sold last year to Huron Farming Company and maternal sister sold to Creekside Simmentals in 2016.

The girls favourite part of checking pastures during the summer...the creek pasture!

This summer we had lightning hit a bale on last year’s corn silage pile in the feed yard. Thank you to our local volunteer fire department for their quick response and avoiding a much bigger loss!

Homo Polled. Rattler is a red Cobra son we sold in 2016 to Tyler Amundson and Maxwell Simmentals. We used him on heifers and on some second calvers as well. We sold a lot of the heifers bred this way in the female sale so we didn’t have too many Rattler calves, which is too bad when you see bulls like this in the pen. 118E is out of a second calver, who is really long bodied, smooth made in a dark red, hairy package. He has a tick more frame size, is deep bodied, soft made and moves out free and easy. His dam is another dark red young El Tigre cow that is the right kind.

We are pleased with the Starters to date, as they grow well and have a nice look to them. This guy is a nice dark red, good haired, smooth made and clean in his lines with an eye appealing look to him. On paper this bull reads beautifully, with all areas being above breed average quite consistently.

This bull is long bodied, right full of red meat, with lots of middle and lots of hip. My favorite part about this bull is hands down his dam. She is a beautiful young black cow, one of only a few Stout daughters we have. She has a picture perfect udder, she is moderate made with tons of middle to her and she always produces a good one. Her first calf was MAF Blackhawk 32C, who we sold to Packet Bros. in 2016. If you keep females, this guy has a pedigree to produce great ones!

Homo Polled Hetero Black. In 2016 we sold MAF King Cobra 3C and we were able to have the walking rights on him after he was done at stud. We used him AI on a few select cows and we were really pleased with the calves. They are very long bodied and built right when they come and grow like crazy. We lead off with this total stud, 42E. He possesses so much natural thickness, depth of body, as well as spring of rib. He is strong and wide topped and smooth made. 42E is a bull who knows he is awesome and will often be found showing off. He moves out extremely well and is very sound in his structure. He has explosive numbers for growth being in the top 1% of the breed for weaning weight and top 3% for yearling weight. His mother is a really nice cow, big bodied and good uddered. A maternal brother sold to Hoegl Livestock in 2016, produced a reserve division champion heifer calf at Agribition and has bred very well for them.

Homo Polled, Hetero Black. Another Riddler son that combines a lot of really good things. 62E is moderate in frame, really long spined, thick, deep made and has a wicked hair coat. Consistent to his sire group he has big weaning and yearling weight numbers. His dam is a powerful cow, big footed and sound uddered with an outcross pedigree for our herd. These Riddlers are going to gain more popularity; they calve very well and grow. The females, which we are calving out the first daughters now, WOW! We have a whole new level of appreciation for Riddler after calving these heifers out and seeing them in production. A maternal brother sold to Randy Tessier.

A really neat Lotto son that is smooth in his design, has extra length of spine and thickness in a good looking package. His dam is a hard working SAV Net Worth granddaughter that is deep bodied, nice uddered and big footed.

Homo Polled, Hetero Black. If you raise replacement females, you need to own this bull! 151E has always been a favorite in the black bulls. He is a maternal genetic slam dunk and combines a lot of exciting names in his pedigree. A bull that needs to be appreciated for his length of spine, his smooth design, thickness and structural soundness. His blaze is icing on the cake. His dam is our one and only Lock N Load daughter, who has a “panda” face and extra chrome. She has a picture perfect udder with nice small teats and is soft made and very complete. His grand dam is Remington Cassade 28T who we purchased out of the Remington dispersal as one of the high sellers who was, in our opinion, a picture perfect Simmental female. This cow family crossed with the female legacy that Lotto is creating makes 151E’s genetic potential exciting. A maternal brother sold to Birch Meadows Colony in 2016.

Homo Polled, Hetero Black. A bull I have always liked the shape and style of 176E is as long of a bodied bull in our offering yet he doesn’t sacrifice anything in terms of thickness, width and huge rib shape. A bull that has a great hair coat, moves out so free and one you have to admire for his depth of quarter. His young dam is a Cobra daughter who has done a great job on this guy. Cobra has been a sure bet here for us. They come easy and grow like crazy and are turning into beautiful females and strong sires. This bull aligns great genetics such as Lotto, Crosby, Cobra and Poker Face in his pedigree to be useful in a variety of different operations.

Consistency in this group of bulls is one of the things we are most proud of in this year’s set. From the oldest to the youngest they offer a lot of good things that we work hard at producing, so that we can offer them for you to continue to grow and progress with your own herds. 247E is very thick muscled, big middled, long bodied, good footed and hairy.

LaBatte Simmentals will be consigning 16 open replacement heifers in this year’s sale again, including 8 black and 8 red heifers. This is really a strong group of heifers, we think the best we’ve ever offered in our sale. They’re represented by some of the leading sires in the industry – Springcreek Spark Plug, Bartender, IPU Red Deputy, MRK Priority and Westcott. If you have any questions about these heifers before the sale be sure to give us a call and we will be glad to go over them with you. Or, better yet, come and have a look at the farm before the sale. We would be glad to show you them and their brothers in the bull pen.

These Priority females are something pretty special and can’t wait to get them into production. A lot of our top heifers are sired by Priority and with the great mother he has (a Wallbanger daughter that Kolton purchased as a high seller out of “Checkers” from Robb Farms), and an elite grandmother (a 56U cow that has risen to the top of Robb’s black program, the 266Y cow that was purhased right out of this sale by the Robbs), we think Priority has a very bright future ahead of him. 90E herself is very broody looking, solid black, has a great hair coat, is deep ribbed and should make a great young cow.

She’s moderate framed, very nice fronted and has her grandmother’s capacity. She has a nice set of balanced EPDs. With Cream Soda and Black Jewel in her pedigree she should turn out very well for her new owner.

Jim Marker of Bar M Simmentals, Gillette, WY purchased her in the 2015 Simmsational sale where she was the high selling female that day, selling for $35,000. She’s still here in Canada and Jim and I decided to leave her here and sell her progeny on a share basis. She is a beautiful uddered cow and looks very much like her elite donor dam Pocahontas 68M. Her Red Deputy heifer is a moderate framed, deep, angular, feminine, broody heifer with a great future ahead of her. We think this heifer calf has a great amount of potential for her new owner with her pedigree, style and broodiness.

A nice dark red Bartender daughter off a really good Horizon daughter. 6A’s first calf, a bull, sold through this sale to Frischholz Farms at Minton, SK. He was a Sheriff son. Her second, a Vegas daughter, was Jory’s 4-H heifer last year where she was Champion Simmental Heifer at the district 4-H show in Weyburn. And now this good Bartender heifer that’s moderate, really angular, deep sided and very broody. This is Hayley’s heifer and it took some talking to get her to put her in the sale.

This is the fourth heifer off of 193E’s dam, 118U, that has gone through this sale. The others have sold to Quinn Wilson, Calgary, AB, Amber Haugland, Crosby, ND and Six Mile Ranch, Fir Mountain, SK and we also have a Beefmaker daughter of hers in the herd. This nearly end of February heifer is solid red, there’s a good chance she is homo polled, she’s long and stylish. Her mother is a female producer.
