Dear Friends, Welcome to the Mid-Kansas Angus Breeders 2013 production sale. We have a good offering of yearling to two-year-old bulls and some young females to sell on March 20th, and we hope you will come early, look them over, and join us for lunch. With four different breeding programs represented in the sale, we offer a wide range of genetics to pick from. At the same time, we all have the same goal of providing you with cattle that will work in your operation. We are selecting for strong maternal traits, fertility, moderate cow size, calving ease, above average growth, good carcass values, and—last but not least—good disposition. We will have updates to the catalog available on sale day. If you need any more information or want to see the cattle before the sale, feel welcome to stop by or call any time. If you are unable to attend the sale you can bid online at lmaauctions.com. You will have to go online and register two days before the sale if you plan to do this. We want to thank you for your past support and we look forward to seeing you on March 20th. Mid-Kansas Angus Breeders

Expected Progeny Differences EPDs are a prediction of how future progeny of a sire or dam are expected to perform in each of the traits listed. EPDs are expressed in pounds for growth traits and milk production. Each animal is compared to every other animal in the herdbook. You might expect that the average EPD would be 0, but that is not the case. Here are the current average EPDs for non-parent bulls. CED

Pathfinder Program: A Search for Superior Cows The Pathfinder Angus program was started in 1978 in an effort to identify superior cows in the breed based on their records of performance from Angus Herd Improvement Records (AHIR). To become a Pathfinder (indicated by a # in front of her name in the pedigree — shown in this catalog as a # behind her name in the pedigree), a cow must calve her first time near the herd’s average for first calving and yearly after that. She must wean at least three calves with an average weaning ratio of 105 or above. To be a Pathfinder sire, a bull must have five or more Pathfinder daughters. 3

Wow, what a good looking bull calf! This ET bull has been good since birth. It’s not by mistake - a Payday out of a Midland daughter. Keep the heifers and feed the steers.

A very nice son of Final Product out of a very strong cow family. This bull ranks in the top 10% of the breed for YW, $F and $W.

$Value Indexes

$Values are multi-trait selection indexes expressed in dollars per head, to assist commercial beef producers by adding simplicity to genetic selection decisions. A $Value has meaning only when used in comparison to the $Value of another animal. For example, just as with EPDs, variation in $Values between animals indicates average expected differences in the relative value of progeny if random mating is assumed and the calves are exposed to the same environment.

Feedlot Value ($F): an index expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning performance compared to progeny of other sires.

The $Values are not designed to be driven by a single trait, as an index is multi-trait by design. These selection tools are the result of the application of industry-relevant market values to Angus genetics for preweaning, feedlot, and carcass merit.

Beef Value ($B): an index expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires. The $B value combines the contributions of $F and $G.

$Values should be used to complement the criteria that producers already use when selecting bulls.

Ficken Angus Farm

In an effort to supply some fresh genetics to our customers, Ficken and Rosemayne Angus have experimented with Simmental genetics. We hope you will find them to be as powerful and valuable as we have. Our bull selection decisions were based on maternal excellence and calving ease genetics. The actual birth weights were the same as our Angus sired calves and management requirements were no different. These bulls are not registered so we are showing the sire’s and dam’s EPDs from both breeds. We believe you can use these bulls with reasonable confidence on your cows. They should produce excellent replacement females with a little more growth punch and steer calves that press down hard on the scales. Circumstances limited our offering this year to one bull but we will have several Sim-Angus bulls for next year’s sale. However, this year’s bull is definitely worth a serious look on sale day. Thank you. Ficken Angus Farm Rosemayne Angus

Bull Power Investment Pays Enterprise analysis puts sire contribution in perspective By Miranda Reiman Many people have a distinct strategy for purchasing a new pickup. They want certain features, and they’re willing to pay more for this but not that. They figure value and how much it’ll be worth for resale X-number years down the road. But when those same ranchers go to buy a bull, it’s hard to follow such a plan. Action at the auction can lead to price “opportunities” and buying less than they really wanted. Jim McGrann, emeritus ranch management economist at Texas A&M, says bull-buying should be more like a vehicle purchase and less like shopping the bargain bin on an after-Christmas sale. “When you put it in the proper perspective – what does it mean in terms of depreciation per female serviced – it’s really a low-cost number when one takes into account increasing salvage value,” he says, noting investment minus salvage should be spread over three to five years. A bull that services an average of 25 cows per year for 5 years, typically accounts for less than 10 percent of total cow costs. “The seedstock people do a poor job of marketing because they’re always talking up that they’re price sensitive and price competitive,” McGrann says. “They never really talk about, when you purchase a bull, you’re making a long term investment.” He authored an Excel spreadsheet (available at http://agrisk.tamu.edu/herd-bull-investment) that helps calculate what different bulls could mean to cow costs. Increasing bull purchase price by $200 only moves the annual cost per hundredweight of calf weaned by 42 cents. A $2,900 bull covering 25 cows per year divides out to a total of $9.31 per cwt. calf weaned. For a $3,100 bull, that moves to $9.73. Add another $1,000 to the bull purchase price, up to $4,100, and that per-hundredweight calf cost would increase just $2.10 to $11.83 “Buying genetics is investing in the future to conform to market demands,” McGrann says. It’s important to choose bulls that help meet what the next owners of your calves want, all the way to the consumer, he says. When genetics help add value to the herd, the cost decreases. The above figures are based on an average 550pound weaned calf. If a particular sire adds 20 lbs. per animal, the cost per cwt. of calf weaned drops to $8.98 on a $2,900 bull and to $11.41 on a $4,100 sire. Notch that up by 100 lb. to a 650 lb. weaning weight average and that cost drops by a $1.33, or more than 10 percent.

Selection for more carcass merit will drop net bull cost as well, given any way to capitalize on the added value. Though such qualitative traits aren’t part of this calculator, the point is part of a larger fact. “Genetics is a cheap input,” McGrann says. “You are not going to make any money or save your costs by buying low-quality sires. There’s no way.” Reproduction is still key, so any sire that improves that area on the balance sheet will pay more than his fair share. The examples assume an 85 percent ratio of weaned calf per cow exposed. If a particular bull excels in calving ease or heifer pregnancy traits, perhaps that number could inch up to 90 percent. In that case, the bull cost per cwt. of weaned calf drops by 52 cents. Compounding some of those factors like a bull that increases reproduction and adds more pounds makes the dollars even more apparent. McGrann’s calculator is based on producers selling calves at weaning, but he says that does not mean that weight is the only factor that matters in those calves.

Bull-buying should be more like a vehicle purchase and less like shopping the bargain bin on an after-Christmas sale. When genetics help add value to the herd, the cost decreases.

“They have to be in tune with the market,” he says. “If ranchers want to get one-on-one with a feedyard guy, he’ll be straight with them. He’ll take them around pen by pen and show them what he wants.” That includes cattle that finish heavier and ultimately sell on a quality-based grid, McGrann says. Once they have that target in mind, it’s more important to infuse the herd with good genetics than to save a couple hundred bucks on a bull, he says. “To say that a higher quality calf costs more to produce, boy that is not right, because the inputs that affect quality, particularly genetics, are really low cost,” he says. McGrann says producers also need to adjust their mindset to account for today’s economics. “If you told somebody that they had to pay $4,000 for a bull, they would have gone mad 5 years ago. But today, when you put it in perspective of $180 calves, it’s a completely different world.”
