elcome to our 24th Annual Bull Sale. Cattle prices look to hit all time highs this year, input costs are down and some much needed moisture has been received. Demand for high quality feeders and replacements should be high. Data from USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service indicates higher quality feeder calves averaged an $8/ cwt. premium this past fall. Several factors go into making high quality feeders, one of which is genetics. We believe our genetics can help you reach your goal of producing high quality feeders. After 40 years of selling bulls the three things I hear repeatedly are our bulls calve easy, they stay sound and their calves usually are at the top of the market. Our “Built to Work” bulls are a result of a breeding philosophy we have been dedicated to for more than 40 years. We strive to produce bulls that sire calves that will give you the least amount of hassle and most profit. Depending on the makeup of your herd, using our Purebred or SimAngus bulls will allow you to take advantage of hybrid vigor with added pounds on your calves and the associated complementary traits of enhanced carcass qualities, cowherd longevity and productivity. Our bulls have been developed in large lots to ensure sound feet and legs while giving them plenty of exercise. All bulls will be semen tested, scrotal measured and ultra sounded before the sale. Results will be posted on our web site as they become available and will be at the sale. If you would like to view the bulls and our operation prior to the sale feel free to give us a call and stop by. We appreciate the opportunity to visit one on one with past and potential customers. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email. We hope to see you February 12th. Plan on coming early to look at the cattle and have lunch with us.

LIVESTOCK INSURANCE Livestock Insurance will be available sale day.

LIABILITY All persons who attend this sale do so at their own risk, legal or otherwise, for their safety or the behavior of the animals. The owner, River Creek Farms, and the sale barn assumes no liability for property loss or accident that may occur.

ANNOUNCEMENTS Announcements made sale day and from the auction block will take precedence over printed material in the catalog.

SATISFACTION GUARANTEE Full satisfaction guarantee for every animal that sells. Every bull sells with a “First Breeding Season Guarantee".

VOLUME DISCOUNT Anyone who purchases 3 bulls is eligible for a 3% discount, 4 bulls - 4%, and 5 or more is eligible for a 5% discount. .

TRUCKING Free Delivery on bulls to customers within 300 miles of Manhattan. If you are located farther than 300 miles we will make arrangements and pay for half the expense elsewhere in the continental United States. We will guarantee your transportation costs do not exceed $300 per head. $100 discount if you haul your purchased bulls home sale day.

CATTLE CARE OPTION River Creek Farms will take the bulls home and continue to develop them until April 1st, free of charge. We will then make arrangments with you to deliver the bull(s).

RETAINED SEMEN INTEREST River Creek Farms will retain 1/3 semen interest on all bulls in the offering. You will own full possession and salvage value of the bull. In the event that semen sales become a reality on your purchase, River Creek Farms will retain the rights to 1/3 of semen sales revenue. River Creek Farms retained semen interest remains if the bull is sold to a third party.

BULL DEVELOPMENT We performance test the bulls on a ration designed for 3.0 pounds per day gain and in lots one-half mile long to ensure adequate exercise. We believe this adequately conditions the bulls for breeding with sound feet and legs while enabling them to exhibit their gain ratio. You may notice the fall bulls have lower adjusted yearling weights than the spring bulls. The fall bulls were run on grass last summer without supplementation from May 1 to September 1. Consequently, their yearling weights, WDA, and ribeye areas are smaller than the spring bulls. You should not use the data to compare the two groups of bulls but use it to compare bulls within each age group.

FOUR YEAR GUARANTEE ON FEET & SEMEN All bulls sell with a four breeding season guarantee on feet and semen. If his semen or feet go bad we will provide a credit for the breeding seasons left to complete. Credit issued will be purchase price minus salvage value. Credit reduces 25% of that value for each breeding season completed. Feet will be covered for unsoundness not caused by illness, foot rot or other bulls. Vet statement must be provided for semen test or soundness and with statement bull is in good health and condition.

Using API & TI Zero in on the unit difference between bulls. For example, when buying an all-purposetype sire, you can figure a bull scoring +180 for API is worth an extra $6,000 over a +130 bull if both are exposed to 30 cows over 4 years ($50 diff. x 30 hd. x 4 yr. = $6,000).

The easiest calving bulls. These bulls will work on Angus, Crossbred or Continental heifers. They can be used on any cow. Daughters sired by these bulls will make excellent replacements. Will work on Angus, Crossbred or Continental heifers with supervision while calving. They can also be used on any cow. Daughters will make good replacements. Calves out of an “All Purpose Bull” will weigh more at weaning when compared to offspring of “Heifer Bulls”.

Power Bulls

Work best on mature Angus, Crossbred or Continental cows. “Power Bulls” have breed average or above birth weights and weaning weights in the breeds top 25%. Due to the pedigrees behind our bulls, we guarantee no calving problems on Angus cows.

Why Buy A River Creek Farms Bull?

Why River Creek Farms Bulls will maximize your Angus based cowherd’s profit: 1. Proven Calving Ease, Customer Validated for over 30 years 2. Increase Weaning Weights with Hybrid Vigor 3. Enhance Disposition, Carcass and Maternal Traits 4. Maintain a Moderate Frame Size While Increasing Thickness 5. Higher Profit Potential, Based on Economically Relevant Traits $API & $TI

The Power of Heterosis There is a reason every kernel of corn planted in this country is a hybrid. It’s the same reason every commercial market hog, chicken, turkey and even catfish are hybrids. The power of heterosis is enormous.

The Goal: Produce for the Market According to Tom Brink of Five Rivers Ranch Cattle Feeding, LLC (10 feedyards, 811,000 capacity), Five Rivers first choice in feeders is the Angus /Continental cross, 50% to 75% Angus and 25% to 50% Continental. This blend of Angus and Continental cattle “creates a good feeding, good grading, good yielding animal that is usually the right size.”

The Bonus: The Crossbred Cow In addition to heavier calves, research shows that producers who keep crossbred heifers as replacements will realize an average 38% greater longevity and 25% increase in production.

The Solution

Trait

Improvement over Straight-Breds

The simple solution is to use River Creek Farms Purebred bulls on Longevity 38% longer (1.2 years) Angus based cows to create SimAngus feeders and replacement Calf Weight Weaned 25% more production females. Our bulls have generaNet Profit Breakeven costs 10% lower tions of calving ease, performance in a moderate frame and maternal Source: Montana State University longevity bred in. Ideal for crossbreeding with the Angus based cow. Our customers that are doing this now report no calving problems, increased weaning weights and high buyer acceptance. The second option is to use River Creek Farms ¾ or ½ SimAngus bulls on crossbred cows to create a percentage feeder and replacement. By using this simple breeding plan it sustains hybrid vigor and stabilizes your herd at the desired British/ Continental mix for your environment and target market. An added bonus is higher semen output and the increased longevity of the hybrid bull.

Bottomline, if you have a purebred cowherd or crossbred herd, we have the bull to cover you for the future.

River Creek Farms is a diversified family operation owned and operated by the Mertz families. River Creek Farms is a diversified family operation owned and operated by the Mertz families. The family’s interest in cattle began in 1891. Today, the business continues with third generation Harold D. and Jeanne Mertz, fourth generation Joe and Kim Mertz and Bob and Mary Mertz as operating partners. Joe manages the cowherd and Bob manages the crops. Mary and Kim provide all the administrative support required to the run the business. Harold and Jeanne contribute critical insight and advice on an ongoing basis. The farm headquarters is located approximately nine miles east of Manhattan along K18, in the Kaw Valley River bottom. Our main crops are corn and soybeans, with some wheat and alfalfa on leased and owned cropland. Most of this cropland is in the river valley with some upland ground. We do some irrigation with center pivots and flood irrigation. During the summer the cattle graze Bluestem pastures in the beautiful Flint Hills south of our farm and utilize the cornstalks in the fall and winter. Joe introduced Simmental to our Hereford cowherd by way of artificial insemination in 1970. Around the same time we became members of the American Simmental Association. Our breeding philosophy is the same today as it was 43 years ago. We have concentrated on producing cattle that will thrive under range conditions while focusing on the economically relevant traits for Calving Ease, Growth, Maternal and Carcass Value. Recently, we have used proven Angus sires to produce SimAngus to give our customers more breeding options.
