Rendezvous Welcome It is with great anticipation & pleasure that we welcome you to our 16th Annual Bull & Female sale, held once again in one of Manitoba’s busiest auction barns, the Ste Rose Auction Mart. As I sit down to write this welcome page, the idea of starting a new year fresh with new opportunities makes one look forward to what the future has in store. No doubts that 2019 has been a challenging year for anyone in Agriculture, however, the sun will shine again & just like generations before us, we will continue to produce the best quality livestock & grain that is ultimately possible. We really are fortunate to be in an industry with whom everyone rallies together & keeps on trucking. Piecing this catalog together doesn’t happen overnight, however with the opportunity in doing so, it gives the chance to really study & get to know these cattle. With 41 years of raising Simmental cattle it’s quite amazing how much we’ve improved not only our program but more importantly, our customer’s herds at the same time. The positive feedback received by so many on new sire groups & how the influence of “this bull” has lasted in someone’s herd really shows the positive impacts that happen when selecting the right bulls. I’d like to think that we, as a seedstock supplier truthfully put our money where our mouth is. We sure like to raise & sell bulls…but they don’t happen without us going out & selecting the very best possible herdbulls in the country. Last spring we purchased 6 new bulls for a total of $151,500. That’s big money to put out, but we feel that owning & using the very best bulls always pays huge dividends later down the road. We also feel that it gives you our customer the opportunity & confidence in buying & using Rendezvous bulls as you get to access some of the very best Simmental bloodlines for a very real, affordable price. You will not find Pump Jacks or Skyscraper apartment blocks subsidizing our cattle herd. Just cows & canola relying on Mother Nature, same as what you built your farm on. As our numbers grow, so does our quality. Contrary to popular belief, when there’s more to choose from, you will cull harder. With this, we are proud to offer approx. 180 head of Red, Black & Fullblood bulls & heifers for your appraisal. Being Manitoba’s Largest Simmental Bull & Female Sale is something we take seriously & want you, our customer to walk away happy with your new purchases. The cattle are only as good the people who breed them. Our bulls are bred to be Thick, Hairy, Rugged Beef Bulls. You will find a vast array to choose; from heifer bulls to power cow bulls in Red, Black & Fullblood divisions. Keep in mind the large number of Fullblood bulls on offer, they cross so well on the red & black cattle. With 70 heifers on offer, there will be some in everyone’s range & for everyone’s taste. Rest assured these girls are of equal calibre of what stays at the farm. Plain & simple, we have to try & control our numbers. However this presents itself as a great opportunity to anyone looking to increase their herd or add a few high end heifers to their registered program. Our sales staff is always just a call or a text away. T Bar C & Transcon are both very familiar with our program & offering. They would happily provide you an independent opinion on any sales cattle that may be of interest to you. They are professional cattlemen whom we respect & work with closely when selecting cattle for ourselves. If we can be of any assistance in helping you select your new herdsire(s) or replacement females, do not hesitate to call, text or email. We know our cattle & can make recommendations in facilitating your decision making process. Cattle can be viewed anytime at the yard. We invite you to be with us all day in Ste. Rose on February 17th. You will be served our legendary roast beef dinner with all the fixings. Stick around after the sale & enjoy some socializing & hospitality. Coffee, Pauline’s signature cookies & Tim’s donuts start at 9am & stay on till closing time. We look forward to visiting & helping you select your new herdbulls & replacement females in Manitoba’s Cattle Capital! Yours truly,
David B Maguet

Sales Management Comments I always have a lot of admiration for the work ethics of the Maguet Families. They fully understand that to have any chance of success in the agriculture profession, hard work is not an optional choice. I believe with the young new family members now present, that a further drive has increased. In that, of course there are also family sacrifices that are made. Working long hours to keep an operation of this size moving forward, quality family time unfortunately gets lost in day to day commitments. Many of you may relate to these words relative to your own home operation and feel a sense of camaraderie to the people at Rendezvous Farms. The Fullblood Bulls have presented a lot of excitement and gained much public attention the last few sales, particularly because of the “Charles” sire group. Well, buckle up, the bull has probably left his strongest set of sons yet! The commitment to the herdbull arsenal is well documented at Rendezvous Farms and you will notice this throughout the whole catalog! More Black bulls will be offered than ever, thusly also more quality in this contemporary group. Black hided cattle are always so easy to appreciate and a ring full of steer calves that pack the pay weight of Rendezvous sires will grab those order-buyers attention. The Red Simmental bulls have been the “bread & butter” group for years at Rendezvous, and why not, they offer so much versatility to the commercial industry. Regardless of Fullblood, Black or Red Simmental, the Rendezvous bulls will offer the pounds of beef you desire and come with thick, heavy Manitoba bred hair coats! The biggest heifer sale to date will happen at this year's event. This is a great opportunity for registered and commercial breeders alike to access top quality replacements for that herd improving source that is hard to find in this volume and overall quality. Join us in the Cattle Capital of Manitoba to access a large quantity of excellent bred cattle from a family that has moved to it’s fourth generation of farming. They understand the grain side of the business too and are one of the really excellent mixed farming operations in the province. We do invite you to contact us for any buying assistance you may need if you aren’t able to attend. Over the years, we have successfully purchased many Rendezvous cattle, sight unseen, for absentee buyers and they have gone on to perform at very high levels of success. For the Maguets’, Jaymes E.

Homo Polled After losing the IPU Red Caesar 11U bull after only two calf crops, we ended up keeping a son of his, just hoping that he would do what his father did, which was being our main heifer bull. After the first five calves were born, we knew that Caesar 584 would become a permanent fixture at the ranch. A good herd bull always breeds better than himself, point in case is with this Caesar line. Every generation seems to impress us more and more. The calves from Caesar 584 are small at birth, but turn into curve bending growth machines. Caesar is now deceased & this will be his last progeny to sell.

Homo Polled. We’re quite excited with Red Express! He was the lead off bull at Herdmasters 2013. Doug Zimmer had nothing but praise for his mother, especially since Red Express was her first calf. Express was truly one of the thickest, deepest bodied bulls we saw in the spring of 2013. This stout made bull is an impressive individual, one of the only yearling bulls we’ve used that never lost any condition during breeding season. His super dark red color is something he passes on to his progeny as well. The combination of length, thickness & middle to this herd sire is something that blends nicely. His calves are born small & easy, they then keep growing & performing well. We believe Red Express will have a bright future here at RF. Look over his sons & daughters, you will like them too!

Homo Polled. Finding that right heifer bull is always a challenge & a half for any producer. Red Knight was earmarked for that purpose when we purchased him in 2014. Mothered by a black Powerline first calf daughter, Terry & Debbie Skoretz felt he would calve well & also give the kind of performance we were looking for from our heifers. Not one single calf of his was assisted at birth & man do they look good a year later. Red Knight travels like a hovercraft, smooth & steady. His muscle expression is impressive & he is developing into a well-balanced, smooth made herdsire. Red Knights has really stepped up to the plate and has surpassed all our expectations in every domain. Perhaps our most ‘undiscovered’ herdsire we use.

The quest for a heifer bull can be a challenging one at times, never being 100% certain until the calves are born. However, with Red Rambo, you could bet the farm on him, he is a heifer bull!! And a damn good one too! We really took a liking to this bull when we toured the Fornwald pen on a cold -35 morning out in Lampman, SK. Rambo is a paternal brother to the ever popular KWA FLYF Red Mountain bull going back to some solid IPU breeding on the top & bottom sides. Rambo has been a stellar heifer bull, calving like a dream. His sons are essentially carbon copies of their father, they are smooth made, have small heads, clean front ends & excellent confirmation. When you see his sons you’ll like them too.

Homo Polled & Homo Black. A direct son from the record setting $190,000 Captain Morgan bull. Glen & Kevin Maxwell had big time praise for these Morgan cattle, especially commenting on their docility. Western Star was our pick of their black bulls in 2015 & was their 2nd high seller. I couldn’t get over the length of this bull. He was a foot longer than any other bull around and weighed 1620 at 14 months. This goes Photo taken June 23/19 back to the old adage: Length = pounds. Solid footed & light on his feet, Western Star has seen heavy service in our black program. When his calves were being born, Gerry felt they were the nicest, most uniform calves he would process at 2 days of age. They were sooo long & correct. Flash forward 13 months & these calves are very impressive yearlings. Be sure to check them out. They will add a lot to anyone’s program.

The depth of body, natural thickness, amazing hair coat & quarters that came down deep made him the ideal red bull we needed to add to our herdsire roster. Mandako turned out to be the high selling red of the day commanding $40,000 but he was worth every penny. Sired by the elite Godfather bull & mothered by a tremendous female that Doug Zimmer raved about, the pedigree in Mandako is bullet proof. We feel that Mandako’s progeny will be the herd building type.

HOMO POLLED. The new red bull who’s caused quite a stir here. Alaska has been a fan favourite from everyone who’s toured the herdbull group. This soggy, hairy meat machine is always in good shape & poses perfectly every time he stops. With a temperament that’s second to none & the most perfect feet you will find, Alaska just seems to bring it all together. A very masculine, yet moderate made bull. He calves like a dream but once those calves hit the ground they just keep growing. Alaska is producing the real curve bender kind of cattle we all seek in this day of age. We honestly can’t say enough good things about him. A large amount of his daughters will sell this year however don’t expect the same volume next year since we will most likely be retaining all his daughters in 2020, that’s how much we think of this bull.

Without a doubt one of the most talked about bulls to sell in the spring of 2016. Charles was bred by the wonderful people at Lockhart Valley Simmentals, Rimbey, AB. Lee, Tina & Hanna Robson toured us around their farm & made sure to show us Photo taken July 12/19 the dam of this great bull. After only a few minutes of viewing both “mother & son”, my wife Rachelle & I knew that we had to own Charles, there was no other alternative. We also knew there would be some very strong competition in doing so. When the dust settled, we managed to purchase him outright for a ground breaking $75,000! We felt we needed to add this powerful, perfectly made, genetically unique individual to our herdbull roster for our customers as we know too well that trying to find that ideal individual in the Fullblood business is a very, very tough job. In all honesty, I’ve never been so excited about a bull as the day we saw Charles & that feeling has continued every single day. His first calf crop was embraced by both Purebred and Commercial breeders with his sons averaging $10,616. The best thing we’ve ever done was use Charles in our program. We truly believe the best thing you can do is to use his sons.

HOMO POLLED HOMO BLACK. As our black program has grown over the years the need to add a black calving ease heifer bull to our roster also became apparent thus led us to the purchase of LFE 3173C (Direct Drive). This long bodied, mellow made, deep sided herdbull was the ideal candidate as he displayed great calving ease characteristics with his small head, smooth shoulders & clean lines. Born with a small Photo taken September 19/19 birth weight to a fantastic young female we really liked his curve bending abilities since he was one of the heavier long yearlings in the black offering at LFE that year. Direct Drive’s calving ease abilities did not disappoint, his calves come small and quick but get up & suck fast just the way we like it. Outcross pedigree to boot, we look forward to more of our bred heifers carrying Direct Drive’s service in the future.

Homo Polled, Homo Black. One of the feature ET bulls to lead off the Lewis Farms 2016 sale. Sired by the ever popular 3D Blk Full Throttle bull whose semen is no longer available, & mothered by the great 621Y donor cow that goes back to the Dark Knight bull, who’s seen huge success in the Lewis program. We felt Powershift really stuck out among his pen mates & has developed into a very impressive 3year old bull. With many requests from breeders to either purchase semen or acquire his walking rights Photo taken September 2018 outright after viewing him, we believe Powershift has a bright future ahead of him here at the ranch. His progeny are easy to spot, as they hold the same characteristics as him. Powershift is very right for the times, thick butted, deep ribbed with tons of capacity & super easy keeping ways will make him a popular choice for many.

Homo Polled. The high selling red bull from the well-respected Kuntz herd is also a maternal brother to the ever-popular calving ease Sheriff bull. We feel Patriot encompasses the similar calving ease traits of his well known brother but also adds a lot of length & growth to his calves all the while maintaining that moderate frame score with Photo taken September 19/19 good thickness. Patriot is a prime example of purchasing a good bull even though we were “bulled up” at the time. We really liked the structure of him as a yearling & when Dad (Richard) & I saw the cow family when touring the Kuntz herd we both felt we should add this bull to the battery on those merits as that kind of bull doesn’t come around every year. We’re quite enthused about these Patriot sons selling, they are very uniform in type and most of them were raised by only second calvers.

With a lot of maternal power on the bottom pedigree with bulls like Harrach & Medallion, we felt Clipper would be a stellar addition to our herd. Clipper has a very docile disposition & calves very easily, also proving that he can produce both top bulls & females with his progeny being some of our sale features in both classes.

Commander was our pick of the Black Gold bulls in the well respected Next Generation Sale in Lloydminster in March of 18. He was also their second high selling bull that day. Randy & Vanessa Noble showed me both the sire & dam of this impressive young bull which really helped me cement the idea of adding him to our herdbull roster. He weighed over 1600lbs on sale day at 13 months of age. His superior depth & overall thickness is transferred over to his calves as well. Weâ€™ve been very pleased with how well he has bred, calved & in the development of both male & female offspring. Commander saw heavy service this year & we feel will really complement the Charles line in the Fullblood program.

HOMO BLACK. Here’s a bull whom I really like & would use if we ran a commercial herd. This will be the last batch of Powershifts selling unfortunately. 182G has that extra rib for length, thick made, good top & loin & carries himself very well. The mother is a beautiful young cow who I believe will have a large impact on our herd. A full brother to the dam was our high selling black bull in 2017 for $14,000 going to Bueligen Ranches, New Salem, ND.

The top on this bull is jaw dropping, he’s a very well packaged individual. He reminds us a lot of his sire when we purchased him. 366G’s pedigree offers a different twist for any black herd and to top things off both grandmother & great grandmother are still producing on the ranch. Great bulls come from excellent cow families. Rest assured we’ve been developing these families for over 40 years. How many other places can attest to such a statement.

Being out of a solid red mother gives you the opportunity to use him on your red herd & get red calves as well which is a neat way to incorporate some different genetics into your herd. Phillip Penner of Kelwood has a maternal brother working in his herd.

The grand dam of this bull, 445Y, is always bred Western Star & has a son selling as lot 27. Like mother, like daughter, it’s neat to link up how a cow family produces & with the numbers we are running, it gives you, our customer, the advantage in checking out how everyone produces which gives you more confidence in the animals you select.

If you like them long, powerful with great capacity here’s a bull to mark down. His EPDs are very strong when it comes to performance ranking in the top 10% for WW & top 5% for YW. Well respected cattleman, Randy Geisler of Ashern has purchased two full brothers to use in his top cut herd. That alone, we feel is a huge testament in the way this genetic combination clicks.

The grandmother to this bull is one of our heaviest, easiest doing cows in the herd.

If running multiple bulls together, the logical choice would be to take both 174G & 8174G back home for the ladies. BW: 88; WW 965.

Thick made, good testicles, they are what’s needed to market top steers through the sales rings. Full brothers to 37G have been lead off red bulls in our sale, commanding top price & being purchased by reputation programs of Jason Becker/Andres Seed & Stock and Drakes Valleyview Farms Ltd. respectively.

A pair of Mandako brothers mothered by a big volume red blaze faced cow. We have a full sister as a bred heifer in our herd & wow is she an impressive female. Probably the most comments made about the Mandako line is everyone’s amazement in how easy keeping these cattle are. They could live on snow balls & cattails & still look full. Chris & Carly Morgan selected a brother to these two bulls in 2018 for $9000.

I could write a full page on just the merit alone of this bull’s mother. This is the 12th consecutive calf born & registered for the Black Diamond 28S cow. A moderate 1400lbs cow with perfect feet & a tidy udder, she flies under the radar but always brings home a good calf. I’m quite high on this bull.

HOMO POLLED. A bull who started out very small in life, and make no mistake, he is not a twin. Like all Patriot offspring, they are born easily & without hassle, they start growing & never look back. Another bonus is the short gestation that Patriot appears to have. The grand dam of this bull also has a Patriot son in this sale, he is a few bulls down in the catalog as lot 68. A maternal sister sold last year to Momotiuk Farms of Winnipegosis. On top of already being great people to deal with, Greg & Gary’s mother Phyllis always puts on a delicious meal when we are out delivering their new additions.
If I was a computer geek I’d love to rig up a chart for all these Patriot sons & visually show the curve bending characteristics between their birth weight & weaning weights. Truly an amazing bull to breed in such a consistent matter. Expect the same great things from 242G.

A Clipper sired brother was a feature son in last year’s sale where he sold for $9500 to Bueligen Ranches of ND to use on their 600+ black cow calf herd.

His pedigree also reads well & adds some different genetics to the Fullblood world. A full brother was selected last year by John & Mark Fishley of Balcarres, SK for $9500.

Martin & Garret run a top cut operation south of MacGregor, with Martin himself being a former president of the Canadian Cattlemen Association. Needless to say some great discussions happen when delivering bulls to the ranch!
For some reason, the dam of this heifer really enjoys producing daughters therefore weâ€™ve made it customary to retain one daughter one year, then sell one the following. This sweet made, blaze faced superstar will mature into an exceptional cow. Percyview Farms have a sister to this heifer & Grant says out of their entire cowherd, that particular cow is their largest, most impressive female on the ranch. Powerful statement coming from the 2018 SK Commercial Breeder of the Year recipients!

A female who should mature to be quite powerful. Commander has done a terrific job on his first set of daughters, and the extra depth of rib is very noticeable. We retained a maternal sister last year in our bred heifer pen where she is one of the larger framed heifers. A maternal brother was selected in our 2018 sale by Wes & Craig McKinnon for $9000.

A heifer we honestly have a tough time parting with. We purchased her mother at a sale from our pals at Spring Lake Simmentals, AB & wow have we been impressed with how well she’s performed. We also saw Ms Subaru 41G’s sire sell a few years ago as the $37,000 high seller at Crossroad’s & he was a heck of beef machine. With this awesome genetic combination, expect great things from this heifer. Tons of maternal power in this female plus a different pedigree for anyone in the Fullblood business.

It is the responsibility of the buyer to determine the acceptance of this certificate in any
