High Point Charolais Breeders Bull Sale
Saturday, March 29, 2014, 6 p.m. Deer Lake Farms, Singhampton, ON
Featuring: 27 yearling bulls
Welcome to the 3rd annual High Point Charolais Breeders Bull Sale. We are very excited to be offering another set of high quality, high volume, high performance bulls to the North American beef industry. When we started this sale three years ago almost every cow/calf producer I talked to then was cautiously optimistic that things were Jim and Susan Baker and Family Sunrise Charolais finally starting to turn around in the beef business. Interesting that here we are three 705-428-3205; firstname.lastname@example.org years later and those better days have truly arrived. The price of feed is down to a more manageable level and feeder calves and fats are selling at record prices. Cow numbers are down, consumer demand remains strong and maybe, just maybe, it’s finally the cattleman’s turn to make a few bucks. However, history has shown that one of the Brian & Doris Aitken great dangers of good times in any business Bridor Charolais 519-323-2538; email@example.com is complacency. It seems easier to make http://www.bylivestock.com/bridor/ a dollar and so the tendency is to let our guard down. We become less desperate for those extra few pounds on our calves; we settle for average prices rather than striving for the top end. All because we can—we’re doing ok. But consider for a moment the unique opportunity that currently exists. Those extra pounds are now worth more Doug, Earl, Cory, Ryan & Erin Briggs than ever. Those good char-cross calves Echo Springs Charolais that always seem to top the market are now bringing home as much as a finished EMB Charolais 705-487-5840; firstname.lastname@example.org steer would have only a couple of years ago. Friends listen, this is not the day to slack off on the throttle—today is the day to manage your cow herd better than you ever have before. The reward for your efforts in this market is phenomenal! I know I’ve said it before but it’s as true as ever, Charolais bulls will put more pounds on your calves and dollars in your pocket at the end of the day. And with the diversity of this sale offering there is most certainly a bull or two here that will work on your cows. Whether it is calving ease, maternal traits, performance, stretch, muscle, hair, hip, feet or even temperament that you want to add to your herd, you will not be disappointed. These bulls are as good as you will find anywhere and you won’t have to re-mortgage the farm to own one. Be assured the bulls all come from vaccinated herds and have passed a semen test prior to the sale. They are guaranteed breeders and if you have issues with one of our bulls we want to know about it. We encourage you to call or stop in for a tour on farm or early sale day and we will do our best to help you make the right selection. NEW THIS YEAR – we will be offering a $100.00 discount off the purchase price for any bulls that are taken home following the sale. If this is not convenient for you we will gladly take your bull back home and deliver him on or before May 1st free of charge within 100 km. After May 1 there will be a charge of $3.00 per head, per day. Looking forward to seeing you sale day!
