We provide “One-Stop” Convenience for Customers. Nothing here at Rendezvous Farms has been wished into existence. Hopefully that has already become apparent to the observant.

be a life-changing legacy-creating event for any of us. Our 13th Annual Bull & Female Sale is coming up real soon. This big event will be held on Holiday-Monday, February 20th, in our hometown of Ste Rose du Lac, the official Cattle Capital of Manitoba. Wow, can you believe it. Rendezvous Farms is now Manitoba’s Largest Simmental Bull and Female Sale!

Our pedigreed livestock story spans more than a single year. As a lifelong student of the pedigreed livestock world, I see nothing wrong with pointing out realities. Just so you understand, what I write is a function of what I know and what I see. My belief is that it takes passage of existence to build a very unique, genetically strong, and very serious pedigreed livestock operation.

In this editorial this co-owner presents you zero details concerning or relating to our sale offering. I could, but that’s left to David. I don’t believe in overlapping and duplication as I crave efficiency. Every year David prepares for you in this magazine, multiple compositions, describing thoroughly for you each and every lot cataloged, plus you also get to read in his own words a personalized summary on every 100%-owned Rendezvous herdsire. This year our ringside representatives working for you will be Shane Michelson, Ben Wright and Don Oberg. These three gentlemen are waiting for your texts and phone calls to select any number of lots for you. They are professional and dedicated pedigreed livestock order buyers. From this sale magazine they can select, bid and buy for you, any lots for your benefit, with your best interests in mind, all at no cost to you. Shane, Ben and Don will meet your needs. These individuals are gracious and warm, completely the accessible every day person.

It also takes a strong vision and an obsessive focus on the few things that really matter. The Rendezvous brand name has now achieved near-universal Canadian provinces wide awareness. Rendezvous Farms is also strongly recognized in a big portion of the United States Midwest. The Rendezvous name is a promise to you, and our brand strength comes from keeping that promise year after year, of raising superior genetics, with great value and offering first-rate customer service. For us that means constant improvement of our annual Simmental Sale offering with no corner-cutting. My present role is offering relentless optimism and addressing the past, although my two sons leading our organization much prefer to discuss the present and whenever possible the future. David and Gerald have the capacities to undertake big projects and to do them well. With their cool confidence they are thinkers and doers, persons of maturity and depth. My thoughts are that in life basically anyone who chooses to work hard, venture and strive do become results oriented. I’ve always revered those no matter the odds that took risks in pursuit of the big score. I would like to believe that Gerald and David are also both gifted and cursed by the ability to sense all options when dealing with our most challenging land, grain and pedigreed livestock issues. Both my sons are also highly responsive towards introducing new bloodlines into our large all-papered herds of Reds, Fullbloods and Black Simmentals.

For our whole group of Rendezvous pedigreed open heifers selling remember they are of the herd building kind. To strive with any livestock herd one has to maintain perspective. We don’t run and hide every time a commodity sector sells off as that’s when wealthmultiplying buying opportunities flourish. Staying focused to fight our own fears will yield this year’s Rendezvous’ female buyers great rewards. Bottom line is this, agri-business has always been the Maguet family’s field of activity and knowledge. No wet fingers in the wind here at Rendezvous. David and Gerald do their homework and take the long-term view of all things agricultural and with that the interests of customers and of Rendezvous Farms align. My sons often mention to Pauline and I that if we continue to serve our customers in a truly outstanding way, our customers will have a rational preference to stick with us. Exactly what has been happening.

We have made bold rather than timid decisions selecting our future herdsires where we see sufficient probabilities of gaining market advantages. Most of these herdbull purchases pay off. A few do not, and we at Rendezvous will have learned another valuable lesson in either case. Unlike most other Simmental breeders, Rendezvous owns nothing less than the full ownership of all our many active herdsires. We pony up solo to buy our own herdbulls without ever joining the out there multiple ownership breeder clubs. What a lot of nonsense. We also don’t believe in using in our herds someone else’s highly propagandized AI bulls structured to benefit the sponsor either directly or indirectly. Rendezvous has total confidence in buying its own walking herdsires. That said, immediately after a purchase, we use the newly acquired herdsire heavily in one of our herds because of the sureness we have in our purchase. Regarding the question of what do we buy, Rendezvous is only interested in quality and a match for those specific needs. Buying powerful herdsires has worked for us. We produce consistent and predictable beef bulls year after year.

To everyone, you are all invited to join us early on Holiday-Monday, February 20th, at the Ste Rose Auction Mart Ltd. in-house restaurant for complimentary dining served with the best of refreshments, before, during and after our sale. This is traditional Maguet & associates hospitality. Our bull sale will open on time. Rendezvous’ presiding auctioneer is a good friend of mine, Col. Chris Poley of Saskatchewan. In closing I would like to thank our supportive customers in Canada and the United States for their business and – just as importantly – for their trust. We never take for granted the trust our customers have placed in us. When you invest with Rendezvous, my entire family works to make every relationship - new and old - a lasting one. We put our customers first and treat them as our valued guests. Thanks for your part in allowing us to earn and nurture the relationship that are core to both our past and future successes. Our livestock customers must believe we truly have their best interests in mind. And to that I say, you bet we have!

Come and inspect our wide-ranging sale offering of “yearlings-only” Simmental bulls with overall sameness carrying our own exclusive combinations of genetics, therefore uniting together that Rendezvous type and such other additional characteristics that can’t easily be duplicated or offered by any of our peers down the street. Friends, take note, there’s no peddling of two yr old product in our sale. That’s not my idea of success. From Rendezvous Farms you get to buy what’s good for you. Our yearling bulls are full of calendar year growth, health, energy, excitement and buzz. Managing our annual Simmental sale from start to finish is Transcon Livestock Corp. It’s absolutely necessary you text or call anyone from the Transcon Team regarding our large “Yearlings-Only Bull & Female Sale” and here’s why.

Sales Management Comments Rendezvous Farms has become a notable powerhouse on the Canadian Simmental and Agriculture front. This multi-generational operation is now seeing the third tier in the family tree perform a leading role in the success of both the cattle and grain sectors with the fourth generation arriving and on the way!  The future of Rendezvous Farms is very bright and dedicated to agriculture as a livelihood.   The bull battery has to be discussed again as it’s virtues are so impressive!  Wisely planned, the search for top quality herdsires from across the nation is continuous with serious dollars invested in research and eventual purchases.  The numbers included in this sale created from this large cowherd have quality and quantity included in all segments of the Simmental herd whether Fullblood, Red or Black Simmental.  A level of comfort in these cattle is that Rendezvous own the sires to every animal in the sale!  Don’t you prefer to buy your bulls from producers who exert the time and investment into buying their own bulls?!?! Their efforts are your advantage! The female end of the sale is as large as ever with 50 heifers selected from a cross-section of the replacement pen being offered.  As with the bulls, what an opportunity to purchase exclusive progeny sired by the Rendezvous Herdbull Arsenal!  Not to mention that you are also acquiring daughters of this highly productive cowherd that has been sorted for decades on quality traits. The Annual Rendezvous Farms Sale has established itself as “A-list” and is an auction event that gathers respected commercial producers that buy in multiples and many, many repeat customers.  These words validate reasons why you should, if you haven’t bought here before, become a Rendezvous client!   I’m proud to invite you to this great sale on behalf of this business minded agriculture family that is not only Manitoba’s largest annual Simmental sale but held in the “Cattle Capital of Manitoba”.  As a cattle producer, you owe it to yourself to be involved.  In the event that you simply can’t attend, we are available and pleased to assist you with your absentee purchasing needs.  Our industry-leading, highly trusted order-buying service has been a very successful tool used by many commercial and registered cattlemen/women. For the Maguet Families,       Jay Good

Hummer 217U has turned out to be one heck of a breeding bull. His sons and daughters are the kind of cattle that are so right for the times. His sire is the $38,000 Wheatland Red Hummer 608S who was purchased by Double Bar D and Swan Lake. The dam is a tremendous R Plus Red Ribeye cow who goes back to LaBatte’s famed IPU Red Pocahontas 105L cow. The 105L cow is the dam of Robb Farms’ famed 71N cow that has made them big dollars in the last few years. Enough about pedigree and past accomplishments, the IPU Red Hummer 217U bull saw heavy service the last few breeding seasons after seeing how his first crop developed so well. What we really like about Hummer is his large, wide, square made quarters. When you walk behind him, one can’t help but be impressed with the pair of pants he boasts. His length & scale is another huge selling point. He has matured into an elite herdsire here at the farm and anchors our red program. Hummer’s calves are born easily and at two days of age, they are all the same -- low set and the widest topped babies on the place. Hummer raises the cowboy kind of bulls who will only make you money. This is the last year offering Hummer progeny for sale.

IPU Nero 274X has made a name for himself very quickly. The fact that he’s a Polled Fullblood meat machine may be part of the reason. We selected Nero at LaBatte’s in 2011, where he was our pick of the Fullblood bulls that year. A long, smooth made, easy fleshing bull, that’s low set and deep bodied. Nero is extremely well filled in the flank area and travels quite smoothly. Add all of the above plus a pedigree that’s Pictured October 2015, just shy of 6 years old second to none, and it’s no wonder that this bull is doing things right. Nero has taken our Fullblood program by storm, his sons averaged $9375 in our 2014 sale & $9083 in our 2015 sale. This bull is definitely one of the very best Polled Fullblood bulls to walk in North America & has impressed all visitors at the farm. Buy with confidence in his progeny.

After losing the IPU Red Caesar 11U bull after only two calf crops, we ended up keeping a son of his, just hoping that he would do what his father did, which was being our main heifer bull. After the first five calves were born, we knew that Caesar 584 would become a permanent fixture at the ranch. A good herd bull always breeds better than himself, point in case is with this Caesar line. Every generation seems to impress us more and more. The calves from Caesar 584 are small at birth, but turn into curve bending growth machines. When touring people in the herd sire pasture, a lot of folks seem to gravitate towards this young herd sire. To make things even better, Caesar 584 is also Homozygous Polled.

Glen Maxwell stated that this was the best red bull they had raised and coming from Glen, Pictured August 2015, 4.5 years old we don’t take that lightly. Trigger’s style, thickness, flesh and body frame is what we’ve been looking for.

We’re quite excited with Red Express! He was the lead off bull at Herdmasters 2013. Doug Zimmer had nothing but praise for his mother, especially since Red Express was her first calf. Express was truly one of the thickest, deepest bodied bulls we saw in the spring of 2013. This stout made bull is an impressive individual, one of the only yearling bulls we’ve used that never lost any condition during breeding season. His super dark red color is something he passes on to his progeny as well. The combination of length, thickness & middle to this herd sire is something that blends nicely. His calves are born small & easy, they then keep growing & performing well. We believe Red Express will have a bright future here at RF. Look over his sons & daughters, you will like them too!

The lead off & high selling Fullblood bull from Maxwell’s in 2014. Hemi’s length & super sound structure along with his rich color made him a natural fit for our breeding program. As a yearling we used him heavily & the results were even better than what we had anticipated! His sons are like peas in a pod. Soggy, thick made, long bodied & many of them with no socks, this young bull is siring some exceptionally good progeny. His calves at 3 days of age would grab our attention. Obviously they’ve kept on track & we are proud to showcase both sons & daughters of Hemi in our annual sale.

The quest for a heifer bull can be a challenging one at times, never being 100% certain until the calves are born. However, with Red Rambo, you could bet the farm on him, he is a heifer bull!! And a damn good one too! We really took a liking to this bull when we toured the Fornwald pen on a cold -35 morning out in Lampman, SK. Rambo is a paternal brother to the ever popular KWA FLYF Red Mountain bull going back to some solid IPU breeding on the top & bottom sides. Rambo has been a stellar heifer bull, calving like a dream. His sons are essentially carbon copies of their father, they are smooth made, have small heads, clean front ends & excellent confirmation. When you see his sons you’ll like them too. Homo Polled.

Glen & Kevin Maxwell had big time praise for these Morgan cattle, especially commenting on their docility. Western Star was our pick of their black bulls in 2015 & was their 2nd high seller. I couldn’t get over the length of this bull. He was a foot longer than any other bull around and weighed 1620 at 14 months. This goes back to the old adage: Length = pounds. Solid footed & light on his feet, Western Star has seen heavy service in our black program. When his calves were being born, Gerry felt they were the nicest, most uniform calves he would process at 2 days of age. They were sooo long & correct. Flash forward 13 months & these calves are very impressive yearlings. Be sure to check them out. They will add a lot to anyone’s program. Homo Polled & Homo Black.

Mandako turned out to be the high selling red of the day commanding $40,000 but he was worth every penny. Sired by the elite Godfather bull & mothered by a tremendous female that Doug Zimmer raved about, the pedigree in Mandako is bullet proof. We are thrilled with his first calf crop, and his sons will be the ideal type for all ranchers.

This is a bull who reminds me immensely of his sire, Western Star when we purchased him as a yearling. He is extraordinarily long, just like if he had an extra rib.

Here’s your ticket to increasing weaning weights & raising first cut replacement females. Park the Angus bull & use 548D, as he has that extra punch that will put dollars in your pocket when you come to sell your calves. Deep sided, super long, thick made with a big hoof he will travel like a sail boat. Poschenrieder Farms Ltd of Westbourne who run a mainly black herd own two maternal brothers & have had excellent success with 10 or so of the Rendezvous bulls in their program. Last year a red brother to 548D sold to Lach Farms of Plumas for $8000. Richard Mueller of Wishek, ND also owns another brother. Along with 2 sisters retained in our herd, these stats should tell the tale.

Remember we buy & own all of our herdsires 100%, so you won’t find an AI calf here. I’ve admired this bull a lot. Really noting his shape, we pondered deeply about retaining this bull for our own use in the heifer pen. However since his sire is in his prime, we decided to make 79D available to you, our customers. This bull in very well balanced & structurally correct in his makeup. Easy fleshing, thick made yet smooth shouldered with a small head for ease of calving, this bull has a lot going for him.

Homozygous Polled. Red Knight sure knows how to crank out these awesome calves. Be it heifers or bulls they’re always exciting. 239D is a spitting image of his sire, and he may mature to be even a touch bigger than his sire, with Red Knight himself being around 2300lbs at 4 years of age. Tons of muscle expression, style, eye appeal, lots of length with profound depth. 239D had a 78lbs birth weight & crunched the scale at weaning hitting 1000lbs. He’s a real curve bender.

An early March bull, and one of our younger lots to sell but none the less a good one. Smaller framed with exceptionally smooth shoulders, he is definitely another great candidate for the heifer pen. We’ve had a huge growing demand for these types of Red Simmental heifer bulls. Number one reason is they calve better than the typical British breed & you don’t get that birth weight fluctuation when using them on Simmental cross females. Just ask our night watchman Ron Raffray. He comments all the time on how easy it is nowadays calving heifers, as they just do it on their own.

Wide topped, super thick butted, exceptionally deep bodied with a tremendous hair coat, 124D screams HERDBULL! Born at 91lbs and weaning off at 1005lbs, he’s the curve bender type.

Last year the 481Y cow raised our high selling red bull going sight unseen to top cattle producer Steven Hoffart of North Dakota for $17,500. In 2015 she raised our high selling bull going to Zdan Farms of Alonsa for $14,000. And in 2014 her first bull calf was selected by long time customer & great rancher Todd McPeak of Driscoll, ND.

I don’t want to sound like a broken record when I talk about these Caesar sons but it’s hard not to since they’re so similar in how they develop! This powerful blaze faced bull was born to a first calf heifer at 79lbs & weaned off at 915lbs. The Draco mother definitely did a great job on her first kick at the can. I really like the shape & muscle expression of this bull. He comes together so nicely, wide topped, thick butted, big testicles & the right amount of bone. Kirk Gilmore may have coined it the best a few years ago while touring the bull pen noting on how these Caesar sons play double duty in the field of performance & calving ease. “They’re not just heifer bulls, they’re performance bulls too!”

The best way to decide is by purchasing a couple of brothers. When you get home from the sale & the wife asks if you bought anything, just reply “Yep, only a couple of Caesars”. Chances are she will like your answer. Seriously though, run those brothers together, you’ll get increased calf crop consistency which translates into real dollars. Efficient use of sire groups has become a huge reality & anyone running larger numbers swears by it. You’ll really see the benefits when you come to sell your calves & when retaining daughters as it becomes much more manageable tracking sires.

Talk about an eye catching bull! Transcon rep Cody Haney was dazzled by 275D when he was touring the bull pen in late November. Cody kept saying “no matter which angle I analyze this bull, I just can’t seem to poke any holes in him”. We agree, 275D is long as a freight train, thick butted, deep bodied & stands perfectly every time he stops. This would probably be my pick to replace our Caesar bull if we didn’t still have the old boy. 275D will calve exceptionally well with his nice head, smooth shoulders & long body. A bull with a bright future ahead of him.

That’s exactly what Michael SHAWACRES JAHARI 50L Hofer of Riverdale Colony did with a brother to this bull. Michael has had awesome results using ANCHOR “T” KANDIS 57F FB Rendezvous bulls on his Angus based, entire black cowherd. A full sister to 446D sold last year VIRGINIA’S KINGBUSTER 6K to Geordy Gabruck of Meota, SK.

Here’s a bull with a different twist on pedigree, as his mother was bred by AJB Simmentals. The Renegade cow is a big hoofed, larger framed cow who’s very quiet & an easy keeper. This year’s bull calf shares the same disposition. He’s a more moderate framed individual who will be the middle of the road type. If you’ve been breeding a lot of Red in your cattle, maybe it’s time to throw a shot of Fullblood back in to maintain the blaze & milk.

We all know the scarcity of finding good hairy, thick made, Fullblood bulls. We’ve relentlessly kept selecting herdsires to keep that segment of our breed going as there will always be demand for the right kind no matter what color or trends come & go. 557D is a tan colored Hemi son, and his brownish Kingbuster mother is one of our only “buckskin” producers. She’s a super deep, larger framed cow who lays down & has a good calf every year. No worries on the BW, she just packs a little more to her offspring. A maternal brother went into Brett Levandoski’s program last year. The Levandoski’s have purchased 5 bulls from us in the last 2 years.

Definitely the right type of bull here, a little younger in age but that’s irrelevant. Excellent shape, scale & muscle expression. His length of body is a sure fire way to add those extra pounds without sacrificing calving ease. Born light at 97 lbs, one glance at his head & shoulders & it will be smooth sailing come calving time. The mother of this bull is a cow who people find quite easily. She’s impressive & the type whom you could build your dream herd around. Kelly Hansen purchased a feature maternal sister last year.

A beautiful black blaze faced heifer. We feel our offering of black heifers is extremely strong & even throughout. These Hot Shot daughters are hard to part with since this is the last year with them. Take advantage of that fact and add as many of them to your program as you can. In a perfect world we would’ve kept them all however we have to be fair to everyone. The mother is a hard working Fullbood cow who produced a heifer that Pine Creek Simmentals purchased a few years ago & in turn raised one of their high selling bulls at the Red Deer Bull Sale.
