Trefiak Family

O

ur family extends a warm welcome to friends, neighbours and fellow cattlemen to our 26th Annual Bull Sale on the farm. Once again, we are selling the bulls by video with Chris Poley auctioneering and DLMS broadcasting online. We always look forward to talking about cattle and the business of producing beef as efficently and profitably as possible. There are many varied methods and philosophies as to how to best achieve this. The one consistent thing we have found is that the heart of every operation is a love of cows and family. We are always thankful to our customers for giving our program a chance to work for them and for coming back year after year with solid support. 90% of our buyers are repeat customers and we truly believe this to be one of biggest successes. We strive to be #1 on service and if there is anything that we can do to improve your experience as a customer, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Whether you are a buyer, a bidder or just come for a visit, you are important to us and we look forward to seeing you February 8th!

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM At MJT we make every effort to ensure that there is value in your bull buying dollar, be it through our bull development program which ensures the most longevity possible, our consistent emphasis on sensible birth weights to ensure live calves, or minimal labour and high breed back percentages. Our cattle are raised with the basics in mind with a primary focus on the needs of the commercial cattleman. Basics are what have made the Hereford and Angus breeds attractive for generations. We feel our commitment to this should help you, the rancher, produce predictable and profitable cattle using MJT genetics. We feel that having kept the basics of the cattle business at the forefront of our program is what has built both our herd and reputation. We won’t compromise our principals to chase trends or for short term gain in our own pockets. We believe the most economically important traits for the cow/calf producer are still all about the fundamentals...fertility, longevity, structure and soundness, and fleshing ability, regardless of breed. MJT isn’t in this for the short haul. We have been in the “Bull Business” for four generations and this is our 26th sale at home. The philosophy has evolved over the years and we feel that the cattle are continuing to improve and are now more consistent than ever. We offer a good selection of bulls that are affordable to the needs and budget of every rancher. We run the cow herd and the bulls like a commercial outfit, testing the do-ability, winter hardiness, fertility, udder quality and longevity under real world conditions. We know our cows can wean a

26th annual back to the basics bull sale

respectable calf crop under almost any conditions. We strive for low input management, and our cow herd has proven it can graze nearly year round. In 2018, the mature Spring calving cow herd was fed mechanically for only 10 days. It has been our goal for a few years to only feed for a short period at calving and this year we were able to achieve something we only thought to be impossible 10 years ago. MJT bulls are developed gently with their futures in mind. We expect that the bull you buy looks better on sale day than in the photo in the catalog and that he will look better the day we deliver him than the day you bought him. We just see this as normal development and will not overfeed to get them fat for the sale. We want you to be able to see what each animal has to offer under his hide, so you can pick the best fit for your cow herd. Gradual development in large pastures and big pen sizes ensures mobility, athleticism, and skeletal strength. All bulls are coming Two Year Olds; bulls that can cover more ground, breed more cows and maintain their stature better than a yearling bull. We consciously make low use of AI breeding. Selecting a new herd bull is an intense process. We make many miles and believe that the homework on the dam, the related offspring and the actual bull himself are critical. The investment in genetics with this method is a few orders of magnitude greater than AI’ing. As we investigate and analyze each new breeding piece that we add we also find ourselves more


“WE DON’T RAISE SHOW CATTLE, WE SHOW CATTLE WE RAISE.” and more looking back at our own yearling pen and cowherd to move our program forward. For 25 years we have selected for consistent birthweights, and focused on soundness and foot structure. We truly believe the females are the pillars of a herd, and our main focus is always building better females. Moving our main group to late spring calving has pushed us even further in our focus on udder quality. So why not just AI? When we buy a live bull and walk him with our cows we get to see all the other traits that don’t show up on a photo or a stat sheet. This allows us to be the first to know if any problems arise and allows us to cull accordingly. We hear much concern with foot and leg structure in today’s cattle. As far as we can tell, the surest way to verify long term structure and breeding soundness is to walk our dams and sires and be very critical of anything that might develop. On sale day the pens will be nicely bedded but we always leave some open ground so that you can assess our emphasis on foot quality for yourself. We don’t raise show cattle, we show cattle we raise. We have often debated about the merits of showing cattle. We worry that there are times in the industry where it becomes tempting to compromise on the fundamentals in favor of competition. However, there are also many benefits it affords. First and foremost, it helps develop our kids. The learning and opportunities that our industry provides agricultural youth in the show environment is second to none. The relationships

that the kids make will last far longer than any ribbons they win. We have discovered that the enthusiasm of the younger generations can take you further than you ever thought possible. Secondly, for our own development. When we get to the shows, it’s a community unlike any other… graced with so many competitive yet thoughtful, caring, strong, fun and hardworking people. The exchange of ideas about what works and what doesn’t can’t help but make everyone involved a better stockman. Thirdly, it allows us a great opportunity to assess multiple genetics in an efficient manner. Kurt and Mick spend a lot of time through the barns looking for both positive and negative patterns in progeny, to assist us with our own genetic selection. Last, but not least, the cattle we show are cattle from our program and getting them in show condition allows us to demonstrate the results our customers can expect from our genetics when fed on a higher plane of nutrition. It reinforces our confidence that our genetics have enough muscle, depth of body and quality to remain relevant in today’s cattle industry. We hear from many customers, that show cattle don’t work for them. We have made a commitment to showcase the genetics we raise for our commercial buyers, and will not compromise on our fundamentals to chase a banner. MJT cattle are sold with a 100% guarantee and we strive to be #1 on service. We know sometimes things go wrong with bulls and if you have trouble we want to be the first to know.

BULLS ARE FED WITH THEIR FUTURES IN MIND! THEY ARE ON PASTURE FOR SUMMER AND FALL GRAZING. IN WINTER BULLS ARE FED HAYLAGE, A LIGHT WHOLE OAT RATION AND CORN SILAGE. WE DON’T USE PROCESSED GRAIN AND PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS FOR SALE ANIMALS. ALL BULLS MUST PASS A BREEDING AND SOUNDNESS EVALUATION. NONE OF THE MJT BULLS HAVE HAD THEIR FEET TRIMMED.

Avatar is one of those bulls that you keep going back to. Seeing his daughters in production in our herd made us decide to use him to flush to a few of our favorite cows as well as AI a group of females to him. The production, fertility, longevity and udder quality has made him a definite herd improver. Birth weights and calving ease have been super. He has many fans in both the commercial and purebred circles.

Lincoln offspring are well marked, fully pigmented and have beautiful hair coats. His sons are heavy muscled and the daughters are feminine, fancy and perfect uddered. They have the capacity and rib that make them super mama cows! His progeny have done very well in the show ring and in the pasture for us. Lincoln is no stranger to the show ring himself. He was the Farmfair International Grand Champion Hereford bull in both 2013 and 2014. Mick judged him at Farmfair in 2013 and purchased him out of the stall from Flewellings right after. MJT 495Y Cindy 105C was Champion Horned Hereford Female at Lloydminster Stockade Roundup in 2016 as a bred heifer, and again in 2017 with her calf at side. She was also Champion Senior Female at Canadian Western Agribition.

Known affectionately as ‘Magnum’ this bull has turned out to be like a fine wine. As we get to know his female progeny better over time, he just gets better with age. We loved the foot quality, performance, and straight horned pedigree that makes great females. We also wanted to re-inject the influence of his dam Rosie 228P as she was the feature cow in our dispersal. Magnum is a full brother to Cash who was lost before we could collect semen this is the best of our genetics from the original cowherd.

It is always interesting to watch how one’s opinion of a herdsire develops. Mick picked 4420 from the ‘Yards’ at Denver at just 9 months old. He developed into a big powerful bull with plenty of middle and muscle. His progeny are very moderate at birth and take a couple of months to come into themselves, but when they do look out! Now that we have 2 sets of females in production we can confidently say what his sons will produce for our customers.

Bank Note’s dam is the ideal Angus female that is impossible to fault, and she has shown her breeding potential through Bank Note and his maternal sister Rose 1019.

This is a bull that keeps showing us how important he is to the heart of our cowheard. His daughters have some of the best udders on the ranch. They are fertile and moderate, a perfect fit for our grazing system. His sons were a feature in last year’s sale. Definitely a calving ease specialist with exceptional muscle pattern. It is hard to find a bull this muscled, free travelling, and balanced.

He sired the 2018 Reserve Champion Mature Bull of Farmfair and Agribition, MJT Frontier 121D. A great example that the progeny of 467Z are easy calving, good footed, solid structured, without compromising performance.

Commercial F1 Bull. 216D is Casey’s Hereford cow, and he took her first sire selection very seriously. All efforts to convince him to breed her Hereford were unsuccessful. In fact, at 6 years old, he may have marched her right out of the Hereford pen and in with Crossfire when we had her in with the Herefords. A serious conversation ensued, and Grandpa couldn’t argue with his logic. Casey loves his Baldies and thought an Angus calf would be easier on her. Turns out, his mating was pretty successful.
