Barriere, BC 250-672-9309 250-318-8539 Cell ian@mitchellcattle.com Welcome to our 10th Annual Best Bet Bull Sale. We would like to thank you for taking the time to look through the catalogue and hope that you enjoy viewing a set of bulls that we are very proud of. It is amazing how time flies, already our tenth sale! It was 1971 when our first Simmental calf was born and we have been selling bulls for more than forty years, so I suppose it stands to reason that it seems like only yesterday we decided to meet Ron and Lois in Williams Lake to have a sale. Our family is certainly involved in our operation. It is a pleasure having extra hands to get chores done. Leanna has a good eye for cattle and when we forget a number or who a calf belongs to she always has it and Thompson is always on hand to help wherever needed. Mom is still active, at 87 she still delivers sides to the University for their meat program and keeps our supplies stocked from Kamloops. My brothers help during calving season and whenever there is an extra body needed. I believe we have a very solid set of bulls, there are large sire groups for your comparison, with enough variety to suit your needs. These bulls have developed in conditions that are similar to yours, they know how to get out and travel. Feet and legs are extremely important to us as they have to be able to move long distances. We focus on the females being trouble free; with good disposition and udders, easy calving and sound. 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. The bulls have done very well and they came off the range looking great. The health has been excellent and they have had great gains after a bit of a moderate start. We feed a high roughage total mixed ration that is designed to keep the bulls healthy. We have grown corn for the first time and as with other firsts there are always a few challenges. As usual the bulls go through many tests to make the sale, they must always go through the “right gate “or they wind up on a different route. Despite all of our efforts to provide the best genetics, occasionally there are unforeseen problems but we want to make it right, guaranteed! 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 March 29th, the coffee is always on. If you wish to have someone do the purchasing 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 Crosby’s it is my pleasure to extend our greetings and invitation to join us for lunch and our sale on April the 1st. See you all at the Lake, Ian, Anja and Family

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.

RED MITCHELL’S DAWSON 3Y 3Y is a bull that we felt had too much breeding potential to let him go. He was born at 72 pounds and weaned at 820. His dam and grand dam produced well until they were 15 years old. 3Y had tremendous feet and was always sound. He remains #1 for birth weight in the Angus breed and top 3% for calving ease which is impressive for a heavily muscled bull. This will be his last set of calves to sell.

Angus - Red & Reference Sires

Red Lazy MC ANALYST 113A Analyst is another calving ease specialist but with a little more power. He is positive in almost all EPD traits being top 1% for marbling and top 7% for ribeye. As a yearling he was almost 16 inches for actual ribeye measurement, this is impressive even for Simmental bulls. We used Analyst on a big group of heifers this year and he calved well.


DOUBLE G ZEPPLIN 21G Here is a bull that we had been hunting for, for a while. The high selling red bull out of a Saskatchewan sale. He has turned out to be Homozygous polled and a heck of a breeder. He is so smooth and out of a great old cow. We are calving his daughters for the second year now and they are turning out to be super productive attractive young cows.

DOWNEY 106Y 106Y or Downey as we call him was the $17000 high selling bull out of their sale in Manitoba. He is a son of the great Wheatland 680 S sire and has certainly proven himself here. He is our “go to” calving ease bull, his calves are born with short gestation. We used him on all of our heifers with great success. We used him on most of our black heifers for three years with great success. His calves have tremendous hair coats are very sound and correct. He has three sons in the sale and three daughters with sons in too.

ERIXON POWER PLAY 102Y RED CROWFOOT RUMBLER 2192Z Where to start, Power Play has quite a story! We knew that he had a lot of friends sale day so we partnered with Spring Creek Simmentals and Black Sands to own him, he was the high selling red Simmental at Erixons sale at $17,250.00 and he and his four embryo sibs averaged $10,000.00. His dam 2P has produced the Agribition 2009 Grand Champion Female and again the Reserve Senior Heifer Calf Champion at CWA 2012, she has numerous progeny working in many top programs across the country. A Power Play heifer was the high seller at Black Sands dispersal for $26,000.00

SPRING CREEK GOLDEN STANDARD MBJ 903A We tried to buy Gold Standard as a yearling and powered out on him, he was purchased by Black Sand for $22000. Fortunately for us they dispersed their cowherd that fall and we had another opportunity to own him, unfortunately for the same dollars but we are glad we did. We have had numerous calls from people who bought cows that were bred to him looking for semen. He was a tremendous breeder and moved like a cat. We have another super set of calves on the ground now but unfortunately lost Gold Standard to a freak spinal injury this summer.

Crowfoot is an impressive bull to say the least. I bought him based on carcass merits and the strength of his dam. He was #3 out of 108 bulls for rib eye size with good marbling. His dam, a black cow, was the lead off lot of Crowfoot’s dispersal and was the high selling pair out of 900 lots - quite a feat! He has explosive growth and has proved to throw some birthweight but we are yet to assist a calf out of him. His first daughters calved this spring, they have beautiful udders and will definitely make their mark here.

LAZY CREEK HOTSHOT 56A HotShot is a bull we used extensively as a black calving ease bull. He has worked very well putting calves on the ground easily with lots of get up and go. Hotshot is number one for calving ease and birth weight as well as top 2% for marbling and top 20 % for ribeye.

Welcome to the 10th BEST BET BULL SALE! We are pleased to join Mitchell Cattle Co. once again in this great sale. On November 26th, our daughter Jen and husband David welcomed their second daughter, Harlow Imogene. That makes six grandchildren for us in less than five years! 2016 at our farm could pretty much be described as rainy and muddy. A dry spring, followed by rain through the summer and late into the fall. We are bringing a group of bulls from several different sire groups. Duralta 2Y Side Show 73B, a Belvin Panic Switch 2’11 son, high selling bull from Duratla’s 2015 sale. HR Hahn Adapted 61B, a herdsire chosen for his overall capacity and tremendous volume. His sire, SAV Adaptor 2213, is known for siring excellent females. Northline Jedi 27J, an A.I. sire, also a bull we used as a walking bull several years ago, he gave us some excellent females that really were a complete package with excellent udders, body type and longevity. JL Gils Answer 2008, son of SAV Final Answer 0035, well known as a calving ease bull, was purchased from Johnson Livestock in Saskatchewan to be our heifer bull, and has certainly done that job well. Basin Rainmaker 747L, an A.I. sire with excellent calving ease. The females that have been retained in our herd are excellent, deep bodied females with perfect udders. The later two bulls have fit well into our Heifer Bull program. There is a lot of performance in the Angus breed now and we have worked hard to find herd bulls that fit the protocol for heifer bulls - giving calving ease, yet still sire calves that will grow and perform. These 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. They have all been tie broke. We do not sell any Angus bulls off the farm prior to the BEST BET BULL SALE. Thank you for your support of our sale over the years. We hope you can join us again in Williams Lake on April 1st, stop by and have lunch with us and visit with fellow cattlemen.

Bidding will be reopened between the parties involved in dispute. If no further bid is made, the buyer will be the person from whom the auctioneer accepted the last bid. The auctioneer’s decision on all disputes will be final.

Announcements:

All announcements made from the auction block will take precedence over the printed matter in the catalogue. Buyers are therefore cautioned to pay close attention to such disclosures.

Should this not be possible an adjustment will be made to reflect the value of the bull in question or a credit will be issued towards a future purchase. At no time will we be responsible for any costs exceeding the original purchase price and no guarantee is made that semen from any bull will freeze. This guarantee will not cover any situation where the animal has been subjected to mismanagement or physical injury and we will not guarantee any animal that is subjected to any hormonal or surgical reproduction techniques after the sale. Insurance is available sale day and we strongly recommend that you take advantage of this service. We will do our utmost to work with you to ensure your satisfaction should any problems arise.
