MOOSE CREEK RED ANGUS 2-Year-Old Bull Sale

Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Moose Creek 2-Year-Old Bull Sale. It is a pleasure to offer to you our finest sale group ever. Last year’s sale proved to us that we were headed in the same direction as our loyal customers.The results were more than we could have imagined; aggressive bidding from B.C. to Ontario with many highly-respected commercial cow-calf herds purchasing herd bulls. Our goal has always been to sell to innovative, grassroots operations and last year we were rewarded with only 2 bulls out of 115 sold going into registered herds. As the market works to find its level, results in the sale barns continued to point out top calves – heavy, hairy, big bodied steers and heifers still required a premium to purchase with many of these groups netting >15% more than their average weight break. Quality demands a premium and rarely requires more work.The financial advantages to quality stock are well documented. This group is our largest and most complete yet.They really are developing into the offering that we have strived to produce: bulls that are extremely sound, hairy, big bodied and fed responsibly to ensure they last.We have worked to select the kind of genetics – regardless of breed – that can make it in a management system that prides the hard working and punishes the hard doing. The data we have supplied is actual, relevant numbers that can help you make important breeding decisions. This sale offering has been bred, born, raised and developed on our ranch.We are a family-run operation and value cattle that fit into our grass-based system.These bulls are not left overs – they weren’t too small to sell as yearlings, they were bred and developed specifically for this sale.The 2018 offering is already sorted and being managed for it. What truly separates our outfit from our competitors is the importance of customer service. It is our main priority to get your cows or heifers settled to a quality herd bull. All we are trying to do is treat our customers the way we would like to be treated in the same situation. We would love to host you Wednesday, February 1, here at the ranch in our heated sale facility. Jack and Dianne Wilson will be serving lunch from 12:00-1:00 p.m. and that alone is worth the trip.

All of the bulls in the sale have been vet inspected, palpated and scrotal measured prior to going to grass in the spring and again prior to the sale. None of the bulls selling have been semen checked. Most veterinarians agree that semen checking is only valid for up to 30 days post testing. Any of the bulls selling are fully guaranteed; if they happen to be incapable of settling cows, a replacement bull will be supplied until a suitable bull is available. Credit for the incapable bull may be used at any Moose Creek sale on any breed of bull. At no point shall the compensation be greater than the purchase price.

CE CALVING EASE

The average difference in ease with which a sire’s calves will be born when he is bred to first calf heifers. The higher the number the more probability that his calves will be born unassisted

BW BIRTH WEIGHT

Expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit birth weight to his progeny compared to that of other sires.

WW WEANING WEIGHT

Expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit weaning growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires.Weaning weight is an indicator of growth from birth to weaning (205 days of age).The calf ’s growth during this period is influenced by its own ability to grow plus its mother’s maternal abilities.The higher the EPD, the heavier, on average, the calves of a sire will be at weaning.

YW YEARLING WEIGHT

Expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit yearling growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires.The higher the EPD, the heavier, on average, the calves of a sire will be at yearling.

MILK MILK

Is an indicator of milking ability in daughters. It represents the differences in weaning weights of calves due to the amount of milk produced by their mothers. It is expressed in pounds of calf weaned.The higher the EPD, the more weaning pounds a sire’s daughters will add to her calves via milk.

TM TOTAL MATERNAL

Is a combination of the weaning weight and milk EPDs. It is calculated as: ½ Weaning Weight EPD + Milk EPD = Total Maternal.This EPD represents the differences in weaning weights between calves due to mothering and milking ability of their dams.

MCE MATERNAL CALVING EASE

Is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births with a higher value indicating greater probability of unassisted births in first-calf daughters. It predicts the average ease with which a sire’s daughters will calve as first-calf heifers when compared to daughters of other sires

Red Angus

Our Red Angus program is one of the oldest and most respected in Canada. We have lead by example, breeding and selecting a sound, fertile, efficient cowherd mated to top-notch herd sires. We’ve wasted no resources selecting genetics that will thrive in low-management systems, where extended feeding and grazing strategies are utilized. Most importantly, we place our nearly six decades of Red Angus breeding reputation on the line every time we offer a herd sire for sale.

MOOSE CREEK RED ANGUS 2017 EDITION 2-YEAR-OLD BULL SALE

Red SimmAngus

The growth of our Red SimmAngus offering is a product of demand and luck. The base of our Red SimmAngus program is from two elite Red Angus herds we were fortunate to purchase. To develop superior Red SimmAngus stock, we knew we needed to start with an elite base. The foundation for our Red SimmAngus offering is as strong as any in the nation. They have been the reason for our success marketing nearly 250 home raised, F1 bred females the last couple years. Their breeding strength is undeniable.

Charolais

•

K I S B E Y, S A S K A T C H E W A N

For a decade now, we have been developing and breeding Charolais genetics. Our herd has grown from one cow to nearly 70 cows and back to 35 breeding females. The expansion and culling was in order to select the type of Charolais that will flourish in the systems that we and our clientele use. Cattle that are easy calving, vigorous at birth and maternal while still not losing focus on the superior traits that Charolais possess: performance based, stout, hairy, big pay weight stock. We have not worked to down size the white cows, however we have been successful at making them easier fleshing, lower maintenance and harder working.

GENOMICS

THE NEW PROFIT TOOL FOR THE 21ST CENTURY “Testing for the leptin gene in livestock is a new cutting edge proposition associated with DNA gene markers. The IGENITY-L™ test, provided by Merial, allows producers to utilize yet another tool in beef production to improve carcass merit.” “Leptin is a protein produced in white fat tissue and the more leptin produced, the stronger the signal is sent to the brain to reduce appetite,” Tate says. “The leptin protein is directly related to appetite, energy utilization and fat deposition.” (Clifford, 2005) RFI (Residual Feed Intake) “An efficient bull will pass on superior genetics for feed efficiency to his progeny, which will be realized as feed savings for calves in the feedlot and for replacement heifers entering the cowherd.” The Effect of Leptin on Average Daily Gain and Feed Efficiency The particular gene being examined produces leptin, which is associated with appetite. Cattle with the fully mutated form of leptin (genotype TT) put on weight faster than those with the slightly mutated form (genotype CT) which put on weight faster than those with the non mutated form of leptin (genotype CC). > Leptin positive animals finished for slaughter approximately 37 days faster and had an ADG of 3.323 compared with non-positive animals that had an ADG of 2.937. > Leptin positive animals also exhibit a greater feed efficiency (6.4) compared to non-positive animals (8.2). (Quantum Management Protocol) Yield Grade Although the results vary in terms of the proportion that grade AAA or higher, the trend has always been the same: TT cattle have a much higher chance of AAA, or in the USA system “Choice.” Milk Production Prior research indicates that a SNP at position 305 of exon 2 in the leptin gene affects milk production in

dairy cows. Dairy cows with at least one copy of the T allele have been shown to have higher milk production than CC cows. If that effect carries over to beef breeds, it is reasonable to expect that CT and TT beef cows will wean heavier calves than CC beef cows. We tested this hypothesis for a herd of mixed breed cows using anova. Results indicated that both crossbred CT and TT beef cows wean significantly heavier beef calves than CC crossbred beef cows.

LEPTIN is a hormone that regulates feed intake, energy expenditure and wholebody energy balance. A SNP in the Leptin gene has been associated with several economically important traits including: milk production, weaning weight, backfat, marbling, quality grade, yield grade, dry matter intake, and days on feed. THERE ARE 3 LEPTIN VARIANTS:

CC animals have less fat and therefore, are less economically favourable. CT animals are economically intermediate. TT animals have more fat and therefore, are more economically favourable.
