Welcome to our 13th Annual Best Bet Bull Sale. Again, I would like to thank each and everyone of our loyal customers for your unwavering support of our program. These special relationships with our friends, neighbors and customers keep us driven to produce a strong set of bulls that we are proud of. Our goal is to produce bulls that will be sound, maintenance free and profitable for you. It is our belief that the conditions in which the bulls are raised and the feed that they are developed with will lead to their productivity and longevity. What a difference the weather makes from calving season to calving season! As I look back at my notes from a year ago, we had endured a very frosty one with very little snow and bitter cold. I am not sure if “climate change� is to be thanked for this one but it sure is pleasant not shortening the ears. It has been a very busy year here, although I must be getting older as it seems it takes less and less to keep me occupied. We very much enjoy the range we are on now; it is convenient not having to transport cows back and forth, but we are certainly missing the feed of our old alpine pastures. On dry years our current range is a tough one, between the wolves and the pine grass it sorts the best from the mediocre. When we started having this sale our kids were three and seven, how time flies! Thompson is sixteen, ready to start scaring other drivers and is very handy at home. It is great to have another set of hands with chores and equipment. As always, he loves his basketball and ranked fourth in the province; they are off to the Provincial Championships, it is a pleasure coaching a great set of boys. Leanna, now twenty, has always had a passion for the ranch and cattle. Her knowledge of pedigrees, conformation and productivity always amazes us. I certainly appreciate help from a bright, young mind putting together this catalogue and Anja has a helper getting tags made, calves weighed and processed, etc. We have assembled another very solid set of bulls this year. On the Red Angus side, we have had tremendous demand for calving ease bulls, and we have answered with a very uniform set of low birth weight but growthy sires. I think that this is the deepest set of Red Simmentals this year with many new sires. Also, we have more blacks than we have ever brought to town and they are very useful and consistent. These bulls have developed in conditions that are similar to yours, rough country and mother’s milk, their performance is a result of the cow not a creep feed bin. Feet and legs are extremely important to us as they have to be able to move long distances. We feed a high roughage, total mixed ration that is designed to keep the bulls healthy. We focus on the females being trouble free; good udders, easy calving and sound. They need to produce a calf every year, no free rides, no exceptions. We have a great deal of pride in our cows and invest a large amount of time and money to source new herd sires. As usual we have put a lot of emphasis on carcass traits, as we still have a viable meat program and these traits are important to us as I am sure they are to you. Our thanks to BC Livestock; the crew always does a fantastic job preparing the yards and looking after all of our needs. If you cannot make it to the sale or would like a little more time and information, the bulls will all be available for viewing at home until April 1st, the coffee is always on. If you wish to have someone do the bidding for you, contact us or the sales staff at BC Livestock. They are familiar with the bulls and would be more than happy to assist you with your sight unseen purchase. Our sale partners, Ron and Lois, are a pleasure to work with and share our commitment to our customers. On behalf of the Crosbys it is my pleasure to extend our greetings and invitation to join us for lunch and our sale on April 4th. See you all at the Lake, Ian, Anja and Family

Although he’s certainly not the darkest red calf in the pen, we feel he more than makes up for it in other attributes. He has an absolute puppy dog disposition and is very phenotypically pleasing. Square hipped, strong topped, with the rib shape and a neat front and head to go with it. His dam is working double time this year, raising her twins that she had up front first cycle.

One certainly wouldn’t expect this calf to come from just an 88 lb. birth weight. He was the heaviest bull calf to hit the scales come weaning and also made the 1200 lb. mark by the first week of January. He’s dark red, heavy muscled and tidy fronted. Another curve bender from our calving ease sire “Dillenger” who we have become very fond of.

With only a 79 lb. birth weight this calf is one of the more moderate framed “Dillenger” calves on offer. His dam is big ribbed and thick made, resulting in an eye appealing combination. 264G is soft made, smooth and tidy fronted with good barrel and hip shape. We have lots of first calf heifers calving out of the “Dillenger” herd sire and their udders and phenotype are so consistently good that we have decided to use the bull in a breeding pasture once again.

There is some impressive maternal strength backing this calf. 95E is out of the dam of Lot 13, both going back to the matron, 9P. 267G is as dark red as they come and super quiet. So quiet that it made him difficult to picture! His dam and sire bring together some built in calving ease with EPDs in the top 5% or better for BW, CE and MCE. The docility and muscle mass of this moderate, easy fleshing calf will make him some friends come sale day.

This calf is long as can be, strong topped with a big round hip. His EPDs are just about all in the green, or very close. 144G certainly comes with a full-on maternal package. His maternal great granddam, 72N, was still here not all that long ago and always had one of the best udders in the herd. His powerful granddam, 213W, brought many bull calves to town very similar to 144G himself. His dam, 208B, is correct all around with good phenotype and a correct udder. To give you an idea of how productive this line is, 72N had ten calves who were kept and registered in the CSA, 213W had nine, and 208B has three so far. With that information, we still wouldn’t judge if you took this calf home just based on his performance!

273G is easily one of the biggest middled bulls in the pen with no lack of muscle and dimension. He is dark red with eye appealing chrome. He certainly gets some of his good looks from his mama; she is pictured on the website. The “Venom” herd bull is one that comes from a cattleman we have come to really enjoy doing business with. The udder quality and maternal strength of his cowherd is of great value, and you should be quite pleased with the replacements and calves seen out of this cross.

This is one of the biggest barrelled, easiest fleshing and well muscled bulls in the pen. It is no wonder he weighs 1235 lbs. at 11 months of age as he has been gaining nearly 6 lbs. per day. His EPDs are also pretty shiny, being top 15% and above in six categories. His dam is a good looking, correct uddered PowerPlay daughter. 84G is truly impressive in terms of growth, substance and structure and is exactly what we were hoping for when we added Revelstock to our herd bull battery.

Out of an attractive fronted, big ribbed and good uddered 13-year-old cow who has always been a producer. She brought 100G in off the range in good shape, hitting the scales with the second-heaviest weight of the pen. This calf has a great top, and although he has more frame, he doesn’t give up anything in terms of muscling. He will be one to add some nice blaze faces and size to a calf crop.

Mitchell Cattle Co. has invested in the health of their herd of cattle for many years through a comprehensive herd health strategy. Currently all breeding females and bulls receive an annual vaccination prior to the breeding season to protect against all the important reproductive viruses and bacteria including IBR, Type I and II BVD and Leptosprirosis. All calves are vaccinated at branding to provide protection against the important viruses and bacteria causing respiratory and clostridial diseases. Currently, calves receive a modified live vaccine against IBR, Type I and II BVD, BRSV, and PI3, as well as a modified live bacterin against shipping fever and a killed bacterin against Histophilus somnus, Blackleg and other clostridial diseases. At weaning all bull and heifer calves receive a booster with the same vaccines and bacterins used at branding. In late fall, all cows, bulls and weaned calves are treated with a topical endectocide to control internal and external parasites. As a further assurance of herd health, all MCC bulls in the sale have been tested and found negative for persistent infection of the BVD virus. All bulls in the sale have passed a thorough breeding soundness exam to evaluate scrotal size and shape, semen motility and morphology and structural soundness. Through my long standing veterinary relationship with Mitchell Cattle Co., I also know that you can rest assured that each bull is out of a sound, solid, productive cow. Ian and Anja rigorously select their herd for fertility, sound udders, correct feet and legs and temperament. These cows go to the mountain with their calf each year and come back in the fall for pregnancy testing. Open and late cows or cows not meeting Mitchell Cattle Co. strict criteria, are culled – no excuses, no exceptions. As the consulting veterinarian, I am very proud to work with Mitchell Cattle Co. If there are any questions regarding the health management program at Mitchell Cattle Co. please contact me. Respectfully, Jason R. McGillivray, D.V.M. Kamloops Large Animal Veterinary Clinic, Ltd.

LRX Dillenger 116D “Dillenger” was the high selling red Simmental bull, topping Robbs’ sale in Saskatchewan. He continues to have stellar EPDs. Having calved his first set of heifers, he will go back to seeing many more cows this year.

Erixon Lad 12C We chose 12C from Erixon’s sale based on his mass and substance. He was a high seller from this prestigious sale. Check out his EPDs, he is well above average in every category except one. “Revelstock” saw 50 cows here this spring before heading to Dominics to cover more cows.

SBSF Eastwood 22E This is one of the most moderate and easy to look at sires in the herd bull pen which we purchased for $20,000. I’m sure he hasn’t dropped an ounce of flesh since the day he got here, and that’s pretty impressive in itself considering his depth and thickness. A very complete package that is eye appealing and to no surprise calved extremely well on heifers with EPDs in the 1st percentile for CE, BW and MCE. Spring Creek Simmentals bought a semen package and used him on heifers and mature cows and the resulting progeny are fantastic. We look forward to doing the same as he outgrows the heifers.

IPU 2Y Spectator 160E When Barry LaBatte was advertising 160E, he spoke very highly of his dam, stating that she was “one of the most awesome cows we have ever owned in 47 years of breeding Simmental”, and we feel that the bulls on offer here, as well as the quality of the replacement heifers in the pen, really speaks volumes on this one. When we acquired “Spectator” for $20,000 we marvelled at his strong set of EPDs, maternal strength, and his impressive body mass and presence that he carried, and the same is still equally admirable when you look at him today.

KRSS Red Desperado 4D We really like the females from our Power Play bull and decided to find another KOP Crosby son. Desperado fit the bill, he is full on and out of a good cow. He is leaving cows with extra length and loads of hair.

Circle G Explorer 40E A bull purchased based on his performance blended with great CE, BW and MCE numbers, and his dam’s quality and productivity. We have been very pleased with 40E’s first set of calves. They are thick made, well muscled and some of the heaviest steers come fall were sired by “Explorer.” We are excited to see his first set of replacements mature as well, as they are easy fleshing and should add to udder quality.

Mitchells Blk Gold 110E

Muirheads Time

Out 263B

110E has always been a standout and is as good as any bought bull we have ever brought West. Right from his first month up until now he has always displayed exceptional dimension and muscle pattern, as well as being extremely sound and free moving. His dam is productive and good uddered, with another calf in the sale this year and females retained in the herd. We believe you will find this set of calves to be performance oriented and built to last in the rugged conditions they were raised in, just like their sire.

“Time Out” as we call him is extremely consistent. This is the first year we haven’t used him on heifers but did put him with 45 cows. We are calving his two and three-year-old daughters and they are pretty special, with beautiful udders. It is no surprise that he is out of one of Muirhead’s favourite cows, and we understand why LaBattes and Circle 7 use a brother.

A calving dream come true. We couldn’t have asked for a better black calving ease sire these past two years.

489 was a rare find. He is number one in the Red Angus breed for ribeye area and also at the top for calving ease, two things that often don’t come together. His actual ribeye measurement was over 17 inches at 12 months of age. He has a particularly short gestation and sure puts bright calves on the ground. It was unfortunate that he broke a hind leg as a yearling, we thought so much of him, we nursed him through. He is dark cherry red and sure puts a stamp on his calves, he has a maternal brother working as a herd sire in Saskatchewan. This will be his final set of calves.

28

Purchased from Moose Creek Red Angus, we didn’t intend on spending over $20,000 for a heifer bull, but the good people at Triple S Angus definitely wanted him as well. This bull has added stoutness and style to each one of his calves and is still worth every penny.

Red Mitchell’s Park 65E A 489C son that we retained as a calving ease bull. There is tremendous depth in his cow family going back to the most productive Angus cow we have ever owned, 31S. He calves extremely easily, and the calves have good growth.

Welcome to the 13th Best Bet Bull Sale. We would again like to thank Mitchell Cattle Co. for having us join them for this event to bring you some excellent bulls. We are continuously searching for herd bulls that will meet our criteria for soundness and performance, ensuring quality females to put back in the herd and bulls that we are proud to sell. Building a stronger cow herd for us is also building a stronger cow herd for our bull buyers. Our breeding season is kept short. If a cow is open, late, or not raising a calf – she doesn’t live here anymore. For 2020 we are offering bulls sired by: JL Renown 7237, his offspring are showing great potential, being very consistent in overall mass, good structured and excellent hair. He is a son of S A V Renown 3439, who is one of the top bulls used in the Angus breed today. Crosby Panic Switch 91E is one of the best Angus bulls we have raised. He is very complete, with excellent hair and disposition to go with it. Burnett Chinook 5D, his offspring offer exceptional calving ease. The consistency and quality are very impressive. We have calved cows and heifers bred to him for three years now and he is a gem. These calves are born small with exceptional vigor. At about a month of age they have already developed a good top and are very growthy. At weaning they weigh up with the calves from other sire groups. The “Chinook” sired bulls will give you great calving ease and a very saleable product in the fall, or females to retain in your herd. The bulls have been vaccinated with Express 5 and Fermicon 7/Somnugen and recently treated with pour-on Ivomec. Prior to the sale the bulls will be semen tested and evaluated for soundness. We do not sell any Angus bulls off the farm prior to the BEST BET BULL SALE. You are welcome to stop by the farm before the sale and go through the bull pen, we enjoy showing them to you. If you would like more information on the bulls, give us a call. We greatly appreciate the support of all that have attended our sale, and bid on the bulls over the years. We hope you can join us again in Williams Lake on April 4th, stop by and have lunch with us and have a visit with fellow cattlemen.

Even the young ones are helping out
