The North American cattle numbers are at an all-time low and it is a perfect time to be in the cattle industry. The current upswing in the cattle market forecasts long term profitability. This is the ideal opportunity to invest in quality genetics. We continue to use new genetics keeping our bull selection diverse and maintaining consistent excellence in our bull pens. The key to a successful breeding program is an excellent herd bull and we understand how crucial this is. The high standards we have set for ourselves within our breeding programs reflect the quality and soundness of the bulls offered at our sale.

Pen of Gaboury’s steers sired by
Martens Cattle Co. Bulls
Aumack Simmentals Opportunity time! How often will you find a two year old Full Fleckvieh Fullblood of this calibre offered for sale? Real Time was held back last year as he was a bit later maturing. He was impressive as a yearling and has now matured into an equally impressive two year old, ready to go to work. We semen tested him in January and he passed with a high score and has 39 cm testicle measurement. He is deep cherry red with large goggles, pigmentation and dark hooves. His dam is a Full Fleck Romulus daughter who never misses and I feel is proving herself to be one of the great Full Fleck cows of the breed. Real Time’s sire, Radium, has become the go to bull for calving ease. A lot of guess work has been eliminated with Real Time, so help yourself to a good one.

The Harrach daughters are consistently good uddered fullblood females.

Aumack Simmentals Ms. Jahari 46S has done it again. There is a tendency for her calves to always surface to the top of the pen and 71A is no exception. Harrach is a bull that has worked exceptionally well for us, raising equally strong bulls and females. 71A’s full brother sold in last year’s sale to Leask Colony.

The only red Stubby son in our sale and the natural thickness of this bull is very impressive. He may be the thickest red bull we have ever raised. Stand behind 74A and you will see the width over his back, the spring of rib and his huge hip. He keeps you coming back for another look. His moderate frame keeps him from being the biggest bull in the sale but he is definitely the thickest. His Red Label dam is our top producing red factor cow. She is a never miss cow that raised a Buckeye bull in last yearâ€™s sale going to Don Booth, Leoville. Double red, double polled.

EPD’s do not compare across different breeds; they are individually based per breed.
How to use EPDs EPDs are a useful tool in selection for traits when the accuracies are there. EPDs incorporate the individual animal with its averages ancestry performance. EPDs indicate a probable variance, above or below breed average, for that trait for a given bull’s progeny. Calving Ease (CE) - Simmental & Charolais The ease with which a bull’s calves are born to first-calf heifers. Plus values indicated easier calving and a negative indicates harder calving. Birth Weights (BW) A positive value higher than the average indicates a heavier birth weight. A value lower than the average indicates lighter birth weights. Weaning Weights (WW) This EPD value predicts the difference in average 200 day weight of a bull’s calves compared to calves of all other bulls evaluated. A positive value indicates heavier than average weaning weights while a negative value indicates lighter than average. Yearling Weights (YW) This EPD value predicts the difference in average 365 day weight of a bull’s calves compared to calves of all other bulls evaluated.A positive value indicates heavier than average yearling weights while a negative number indicates lighter than average.
Maternal Calving Ease (MCE) - Simmental The ease with which a sire’s daughters calves as first-calf heifers. When comparing maternal calving ease EPDs of two sires, the larger EPD indicated a higher % of unassisted births for calves born out of this sire’s daughters. Maternal Weaning Weight (MWWT) - Simmental The weaning weight of a bull’s daughter’s progeny performance reported in pounds. A positive value indicates heavier than average weaning weights while a negative value indicates lighter than average weaning weights. Milk The milking ability of a bull’s daughters. The EPD value predicts the difference (due to milking ability) in 200 day weight of a bull’s daughter’s calves compared to all other bulls evaluated. Positive values indicate above average milking ability of daughters while negative values indicate below average. Total Maternal (TM) - Charolais & Angus Total maternal is a combination of the weaning weight and milk EPDs. It is calculated as 1/2 weaning weight EPD + milk EPD = Total Maternal. This EPD represents the differencesin weaning weights between calves due to mothering and milking ability.
