CHAROLAIS 9th Annual

Tuesday, March 28th, 2023 • 1:00 PM

Welcome to the 9th Annual Prairie Distinction sale where the quality of the offering is the best it has been to date in my opinion. The five consignors including a couple new to the group have really worked hard to present a great set of bulls. These breeders are here for the long haul and will work to provide you with bulls that will last. The coming two-year old bulls in the sale are designed to be that and are not leftovers, but are younger aged bulls born at grass time. If you are looking for quality two-year old and yearling bulls, we encourage you to come and have a look. We welcome everyone to come for lunch and a great set of bulls from some very enthusiastic producers.

There are bulls here that will work in all segments of the industry which is proven by the many repeat customers we have had in the past. There are white, tan and red factor bulls with quality in all colours. From bulls that would work in the heifer pen, to power bulls that will give you as much performance as you would like, they are here. This past fall we once again saw the premium paid for the Charcross calves as consistently high as it has ever been in the auction markets. Crossbreeding is essential to maximize profits in the cattle business and these bulls will give you the added performance, meat and hair that will put your calves in the top cut pen come sale time.

Feel free to give the consignors a call or stop and have a visit with them before sale day, if you want a little extra time to meet the breeders and see their operations. This year’s sale will be broadcast live on DLMS.ca. We hope you can join us in Neepawa for the sale but if you can’t make the sale, you can view and bid online. Please register early if you are going to take advantage of this service. There are videos of the bulls online at www.bylivestock.com.

The bulls will be available for viewing the day before and the morning of the sale for your convenience.

If Candace or I can be of any assistance before the sale or on sale day, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be happy to find you a bull that is right for your program and make your bull buying experience a pleasant one.

Sincerely,

PRAIRIE DISTINCTION SALE

JOHNSTON CHAROLAIS • LOTS

1-15

We have selected herdbulls that offer a balance of calving ease, growth, the right type and maternal traits. We calve on grass later in spring so these guys are developed gently over the 20 months. We have fed these bulls so that in June when they went to native grass pasture at 11 to 14 months of age, they weighed on average 1200 lb. They stayed on that native grass pasture til mid October and started to be stepped on to their TMR final ration mid November. Our sale bulls are developed as breeding stock and not a feedlot animal. Doing so, they will stand up as well as any bull could expect to in a large type pasture scenario, where a large percentage of ours end up. We encourage you to call ahead, come inspect the bulls prior, as we will assist you in selecting the right bull for your operation. Johnston Charolais reserves the right to draw semen on these bulls for in-herd use at our expense and your convenience. Johnston Charolais credits purchasers $150 per bull to customers taking their bull home from the sale barn. If you choose to pick up your own bull from the farm within 7 days of sale, we will write you a $100 cheque.

These 2-yr old bulls are more playful and higher prone to injury being housed in a large group. It is in your bull’s best interest to be delivered and adjusted to his new environment soon after the sale date. We do not assume risk or liability for physical injury or death to bulls following the auctioneer announcing sold. What we are willing to do for you is cover 20% of the premium if insured sale day only through Keystone Livestock Services, agent Lois McRae cell 204-573-5192, who will be on site sale day. We are willing to take sales bulls home to feed,care for and deliver them up to 500km for a surcharge of up to $100 at a time that is convenient to us, no later then May 10 as spring seeding can be a conflict. Farther points of delivery may have to be made to a central delivery point through H.S. Knills Trucking.

JFC JOCK EWING 102J

Jock is a standout in the pen, an early maturing naturally muscled herdsire prospect following in the footsteps of his father. A true purebred herdbull should leave a few sons that are arguably an improvement upon themselves and we feel Jock is a candidate for that.

JFC JEREMIAH JOHNSON 105J

Jeremiah Johnson is a natural calf from our DSY 179E. A lead off Braxton female from the Steppler’s female sale a few years back. This summer we twice flushed 179E and have intentions of sending her to Bow Valley next summer for IVF. We value this guy from ground up and from head to tail. He has what we consider to be a perfect hoof and walks and places those big pads perfectly. A picture does not do this guy justice. We envision Jeremiah to leave amazing high capacity females and for that reason intend to have semen drawn prior to sale for in-herd use. Parentage verification in progress. For ourselves to register progeny our name will stay on with new owner receiving 100% salvage value on the bull.

JFC CACTUS JACK 104J

This is the last Intuition son to sell! We used Intuition for 6 breeding seasons, a performance bloodline, fertility, and one of the absolute best set of feet and legs you would find. The 520C Belize cow family consistently calves at 275 to 280 gestation.

Balanced trait selection. Jack Swagger exemplifies this finest aspect of Sparrows Parker. Stems from a 1450 lb, 9 year old No Doubt female. No Doubt was an A.I. sire whose progeny will always be right for the times. Middle of the road cattle that do everything right. As No Doubt and Parker were both used on heifers, we would assume Jack Swagger to be a problem free calving bull.

Our Sparrows Robert sons were very well accepted last year for many of the traits Josh displays. That furry haircoat, excellent disposition and soundness of structure. SOS 87C has generations of calving ease bred into her. Her Ledger daughter 12H gave birth to a 65 lb Monsoon son this spring and we have full intentions of retaining him as our heifer bull.

JFC JIMMY JUICE 125J

Sorry footnotes are quite often repetetive but once again Jimmy Juice is a fine example of balanced trait breeding, middle of the road cattle sort of speak. An excellent cow family that originated from Gordie Nykoliation’s dispersal. 521C is never miss raising high sellers for us in the past.

CROCUS VALLEY FARMS LTD.

Welcome to the 9th annual Prairie Distinction Bull sale.

• LOTS 27-30

We would like to thank our past customers for sold out bull pens last year.

This will be our second-year consigning bulls to the sale. My wife and I have been raising purebred bulls for four years now. We are very proud of the group of bulls we have on offer this year, when choosing bulls to bring to the sale it wasn’t hard to choose these four, they really show what we strive for in our bull pen. From performance to calving ease these bulls have it all. The bulls have been developed on a 14% All-oat prepared ration through Trouw Nutrition and free choice grass hay. Our herd is on BoviShield Gold/Scour bos program and all bulls are up to date on their vaccinations.

Please feel free to stop by the farm anytime to tour the pen and see the females that back these future herd bulls.

Thanks,

CVF HANK 12K

CVF 12K is a Heifer bull prospect that is THICK with lots of middle! He is a calving ease bull with that added performance. His dam is a very moderate young cow. 12K’s pedigree is one to look at, with Winchester on the top side his calves are sure to turn heads.

NORTH OF 50 CHAROLAIS • LOTS 31-34

Welcome to the Prairie Distinction Bull Sale! We would like to thank the other consigners and By Livestock for allowing us this opportunity.

We are relatively new to selling bulls, but have lived and reaped the benefits of running Charolais bulls in our commercial herd for years. My roots run deep; as my grandpa, William Sellman, owner of Maple Hill Charolais of Alonsa, Manitoba, brought some of the very first Charolais genetics to Manitoba. Our smaller purebred herd consists of females selected and purchased from seed stock producers here in Manitoba. We are striving to raise bulls for the times — heavy haired, sound footed, beef bulls, with a quiet disposition! Our cattle operation is on a Phyzer Gold herd health program and bulls are developed on a 14% bull developer through Trouw Feeds and free choice hay.

All four bulls consigned are 100K and Homo polled tested.

Don’t hesitate to call with any questions or stop by the farm for a tour anytime. Happy Calving,

and Westin

Kade is one to watch for! This rascal checks all the boxes! From front to back he really has it going. Small attractive head, moderate frame, heavy hair, tonnes of middle, and a modest 80 lb birth weight. Don’t overlook this guy! 100K tested.

HIDDEN LAKE STOCK FARM • LOTS 35-38

2023 Prairie Distinction marks a pivotal moment for our operation, with our first consignment to a bull sale. Back in 2017, our herd started when we purchased our first females from C2, JMB, Steppler, and DRD herds. Our herd has continued to build from these foundation, young females. We have focused on females that can withstand the demands of a commercial herd. We currently run our herd along side my parents, Tom and Lynne Baron, who run 150 Angus cross commercial cows, bred back to Charolais bulls. The entire herd runs on the Bovishield program and all bulls are up to date on vaccinations and pour on lice control. We pictured Dec 31, 2022, and will be videoing closer to sale day.

In 2023, we culled hard and only kept the best 4 Bulls in the pen to ensure we offer the quality and consistency that we want to continually bring to the table. Our bulls have been developed slowly by pail feeding 14% bull developer through Trouw Nutrition, while being given choice of hay and corn silage. We want these bulls to withstand the demands of working in commercial herds. We are excited to offer our whole bull pen through the 2023 Prairie Distinction sale. Bulls and their dams are available for viewing on the farm, so feel free to stop in for a visit.

Thanks,

Scott, Megan, Paisley and Thomas

HIDDEN LAKE RIP 9K

Rip has been a standout bull since he was born. Never have we raised a bull that has put it all together like Rip does. Muscle, structure, hair, nuts! He has it all with great calving ease and birthweight numbers. This deep made bull with a lot of quarter was part of our show string this past fall. We are very excited about this bull and his future. Coming out of our heifer bull, LEO Gangster 10G, back to a JMB Fisher female which in my mind are a very underrated females. My Fisher daughters are my top cows in the pen, all have good feet, great udders and are very easy doing females. Gangster is a bull that the good folks at C2 Charolais brought to our attention, and we will forever be grateful as Gangster is leaving his mark in our program.

that is full of muscle yet moves like a cat!

Dozer is out of Tommy’s JMB Shanese 3H cow that we bought as a heifer calf at the 2020 Superstar sale, as we couldn’t let a RPJ Diesel 802F daughter leave our close-knit group. We purchased Diesel with JMB, and our herds have really benefited from the females he has added. 4K is only out of a 2-year-old and would be a heifer bull. 4K is a ¾ brother to our Hidden Lake Elsa 3K which we sold at the Charolais sale at Agribition this past fall. We are excited about the Diesel x Gangster cross as they are moderate but still have some power and performance to them. This bull is halter broke, with a super laid-back attitude.

Decy is built to calve easy. Super smooth front end and long as a freight train. Megan takes all the credit for this one. Megan selected Decy’s mom DSY 257H at the 2021 Steppler female sale. We have always been impressed with our Braxton females and what they do in our program. 257 is no different raising this impressive smooth made and balanced CK Mitch bull calf. This bull was put on feed later then the rest of our bulls, however he has managed to catch up nicely. He will be another heifer bull.

This powerhouse of a bull is only a March baby however sure packs on the performance and muscle we like to see in Charolais bulls. John is long, he is deep and moves so freely carrying all that muscle. John has been one of my favourite bulls to watch grow all fall and winter. John goes back to a home raised Tandem Bull that we have used in both our commercial and purebred herds, however he is out of Paisley “Baby My Moo” Cow (HL 1G). Baby My Moo was our first purebred calf born on our farm and continues to raise the top ones every year, and John is no exception. A half sister we showed the last two years has made friends along her travels as well. Don’t let horns deter you. John is a bull that will offer a huge return on investment by producing offspring that will push down the scale and turn order buyers’ heads. Don’t miss out folks!
