How the Sale Works

This is not a typical auction. Bidding will be on a 3 x 5 card. We will be using bidder numbers, please register at desk. The current high bid will be posted on a board, and a bidder can turn in additional cards as often as he or she prefers. Sale will last approximately 1 hour. There will be a bid off on contested lots at that time. We wish to invite you to come and look any time prior to lunch at noon and the sale from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 9, 2013. If you cannot be at Big Timber on the 9th, we invite your telephone or written bid on any animals prior to sale date. You may put in a maximum bid, and if there are no bidders close to your bid, you will get title to the animal at the next bid increment. There will be a base price posted on each pen of animals on sale day and minimum bid increments will be $100.00 for bulls. Females will have a minimum bid increment of $50.00. The bulls will have a base price that will range from $1700.00 to $5000.00. The bred females will start at $2500.00, the commercial heifer calves will start at $1000.00 and the registered heifer calves will start at $1500.00. Early bidding is advantageous to ensure you get the animal that fits your program within your budget.

Everyone interested can select bulls that best fit their program. Their current weights will be available sale day. 100% of females’ bid price will be due on sale day. 50% of the bulls’ bid price will be due on sale day. The balance will be due when they are guaranteed fertile and sound, and delivered in March or April.

We hope to have all bulls delivered by the first week of April. 2

Heifer Calves It's always hard to pick which heifers to put in the sale and which ones to keep. I'm not going to write foot notes on individual heifers but I think there’s some real neat heifers offered with great numbers and phenotype. Any heifers that don't sell sale day will go right back into the herd.


Heifer Calves


Heifer Calves


“Youth in Progress” Presented to You by Laubach Red Angus We will offer $100.00 off any bred heifer or heifer calf to any youth. Our only condition is for you to report back to one of us and let us know how your project is turning out. Ken started this program a few years ago it was his way of supporting youth in agriculture. It is so rewarding to watch, listen and see the smiles on their faces as they talk to you about their heifers. This is our way of passing along Ken’s true love of cattle and youth. 24

In the groups you will have the option to bid; winning bid will be able to select one out of the group. We consider these the top end of our bred heifers and heifer calves; we will put the 5 remaining from each offering back in the herd. In this manner we feel we can offer our best to you.

A number of customers wondered where the Conquest bulls were. We searched and found this one at Redland Red Angus.

Bred Heifers Selecting bred heifers for the sale is always a challenge. This year we selected AI and pasture bred females. This group of highly maternal heifers should raise some real powerful calves. Any heifers that don't sell sale day will go right back into the herd. Come take a look, I think you'll like them. Heifers were AI'd April 16, 17 & 18. The heifers have been ultrasounded and their expected calving date and service sire is listed under the EPDs. This year after AI'ing, we had all the heifers in one pasture and used BB as the pasture bull.
