Sales Consultant Jared Sherman Rebel Livestock (403) 333-0499 Soderglen Ranches history with Porter Ranches goes back decades to when Stan Grad purchased herd sires for Soderglen’s Simmental program from Keith. I started working with Kevin over 10 years ago and the synergies between our programs came naturally. We share a similar vision for the Simmental breed and its place in the Canadian beef industry and we are like minded in our genetic selections. I’ve always placed confidence in programs focused on highly maternal pedigrees with disciplined genetic selection criteria utilizing data and phenotype. The genetics developed by Porter Ranches are just that. Beef producers are price takers so it’s important to control the variables you can control. For me, that means investing in the genetics that will advance your cowherd the furthest and selecting those genetics from programs that know how to develop and deliver them.

Warren and Melissa Strocher: The Porter Ranches bull selection always has what we are looking for to improve our cattle - a power bull for a group of mature cows that we want to break the scale on weaning day, or a well-rounded bull that will improve both the sons and daughters that it sires. We have not found many breeders as knowledgeable with cattle genetics as Kevin Porter. We always look forward to having a discussion with Kevin about what he has on offer that will work for our program. Over past years we have consistently increased our weaning weights and improved our replacement females. That’s what we are striving for. Our two girls Isabelle and Kennedy love the bull sale, so why not buy a bull or two while we are there.

HEALTH: It is the buyer’s responsibility to determine the requirements for importing any animals into their Province. All PRL bulls have been treated with the following in the fall of 2022. One Shot, Pyramid 5F, Vision 7S, Dectomax. ACCOMODATION: BEST WESTERN, Stony Plain - 1-888-968-0315

EPD EXPLANATION ………. The initial EPD on an animal has about 20% accuracy. As we mate these cattle – and through selection for good conformation and good phenotype measure (like weighing and ultra-sounding) we will, in time, improve the accuracy. EPD’s express an animal’s potential within a given population. To get the animal to express that potential, the goal would be to mate it with an animal of equivalent EPD potential, which will improve the consistency of the cattle in the overall herd. Success will be found when you have the highest number of traits with average population EPD number expression. It is important not to deviate from the type of bulls you want the direction of your herd to take. Consistency leads to uniformity of the animals in your herd. This will not happen overnight, however you will see improvement in certain traits depending on that traits heritability. CE = Calving Ease - % of unassisted births (the higher the number the better!) BW = Birth Weight – pounds of birth weight (the lower the number, the lighter the calves) WW = Weaning Weight – pounds of weaning weight (the higher the number, the more pounds will be weaned) YW = Yearling Weight – pounds of yearling weight (the higher the number the more pounds as a yearling) MCE = Maternal Calving Ease – predicts calving ease of a bull’s daughters (the higher the number the better) MM = Maternal Milk – pounds of calf weaned by a bull’s daughters. A management number with reflection of the environment and feed resources. CWT = Carcass Weight – estimates the average differences in carcass weight

REA = Square inches of ribeye area (0.57 is average) FAT = inches of back fat measured over the 12th and 13th rib (0.59 is average) MARB = numerical marbling score (-0.06 is average) API = used to rank Simmental on an Angus cowherd. Maternal traits are calculated to retain the female value as replacements. The remaining progeny are put on feed and valued on carcass merit. This is an inclusive number, and the higher the number, predicts more retained value in the animal. TI = this is an index that is expressed in dollars on carcass traits an animal has to offer when bred to an Angus cow and progeny are fed and sold as a graded carcass. Yield and marbling have influence here. No maternal traits are considered for the index.

Testimonial Rick & Jodi Hollingsworth: We’ve been using Porter bulls for three family generations. Today you must have calving ease, so that the cow business is run off less people to build more margin. We’ve had great success with Porter bulls on our heifers. The last seven years in a row when we’ve brought our steers to the market we’ve topped the sale every time. To me, that’s a good indication of the quality genetics you get when utilizing Porter bulls.

4 | Porter Ranches 2024 Bull Sale

Testimonial Scott & Dianne Stewart: Porter Bulls have had a huge influence on our cattle herd for the last 40 years. I can say that their cattle have evolved to keep up with the needs of the beef industry. Our herd has changed from a fullblood herd to a predominantly black Simmental cross herd. Porter Bulls have been genetically selected for easier calving, high growth and high yielding carcasses. It’s important to not lose sight that it’s the cows that we’re all trying to make. If you have good functional cows, everything else falls into place. Porter Ranches have done a great job in building their cow herd in terms of size, shape, feet, udder structure, disposition and longevity. Kevin runs it like a commercial herd; no free rides there. Here at Stewart Ranch our appreciation for the work Kevin is doing is magnified. Whether we are looking at the replacement pen, weighing steers, or calving cows, I can say that Porter Ranch bulls just plain work!

Measure Accomplishment After 54 years of breeding Simmental cattle, you would think we would be good at this by now. More than 54 years ago our farm had many choices to make in choosing which breed of cattle to raise. My grandparents generation chose to cross dairy and British commercial cattle. In the late 1960’s they used both Charolais and Simmental. Back then they felt Simmental had the most to offer in creating all purpose cattle. After deciding Simmental was the future direction, cattle were imported from Switzerland, France, Germany, Austria, and the British Isles. From the 1970’s to the 1990’s we were using semen and embryo’s to come up with sought after Simmental beef cattle. While approaching the year 2000 we were realizing that we needed to change direction; fulblood Simmental’s were becoming less sustainable in large numbers and were becoming too burdensome to manage. A transition to Red and then Black Simmental while incorporating a Max program evolved. The days of transitioning were not pretty but by being strategic and dedicated to the most heritable traits we believe we made our cattle sustainable. Today our program centres around effective genetic traits like fertility, carcass traits, and efficiency to maximize how we use land and feed stuffs. Cost of production is in our control; price of our output is not within grasp. We are motivated in achieving as many grazing days in a year as possible while maintaining condition score and health of our cows. It is in our best interest to run our seed stock under strict production protocols. Our goal is to calve the majority of our herd in the first cycle. We feed and pasture those pairs until approximately 180 days of age and the calves are then weaned and put on feed. Progeny are sorted and cattle that are not selected replacement quality are fed and harvested at around 16 months having a 900 lb carcass. Since transitioning to a predominately black cow we have reduced our cow size and have reflectively maintained her production while keeping calving in the 365 day cycle. It is in our best interest to find the point of diminishing return, therefore challenging our cow and her performance while achieving a dense carcass. Carcass evaluation has moved the consistency of our program more than anything. Cattle with larger rib area will always weigh/ yield more than smaller ribbed cattle. Identifying genetics with a big rib and sufficient back fat will get cattle to finish at a younger age. The goal is to achieve more dollars with less feed in fewer days. Transitioning markets may in the future be asking for more marbling which is why we have ramped up our Max program.

accuracy carcass values. Our “Max” (Simm/Angus) program is about maximizing duplication of traits like vigour, birthweight, maternal character, udder structure, foot angle, IMF, REA, back fat, yield, fertility, frame score, masculinity, and femininity. We improve efficiency and maximize output. We know we cannot do this with straight bred Simmental as there is not enough data collected on Simmental to make a selection on this broad of a spectrum of traits, as they all have heritable weight. Angus is generations ahead of Simmental in genetic evaluation so it makes selection of Angus bulls in our program easy. I believe that the Angus breed has comparable problems to Simmental as they compete head to head in terms of performance. Angus identifies their cattle with more accuracy in the traits we are looking for. We believe the opportunity to “Max” is the future for all around traits. We need to deepen the pedigrees with more generations and stay focused on achieving accuracy on all the traits. We are all about making strategic steps that can make positive returns to the land we run cattle on. We are very conscientious about how we make forage. Genetics work to maximize yield by reducing our footprint. Genetic selection that will enhance your land and lifestyle is our goal.

Our “MAX” breeding program started in the 1980’s with Herefords bred Simmental. People’s first impression of this program was not that positive. They believed there was too much 1 hybrid loss in the first cross, and for the most part they were correct. However, our program is different. We believe that improving predictability of our Simmentals can be enhanced by selecting Angus characteristics that are high in maternal traits and have high
