We lcome to our 33rd Annual Bull & Female Sale. It’s hard to believe we are getting ready to host the 3rd sale here at home. It truly is best for the bulls to remain in their home environment. We are coming off of our 6th year in a row of below average moisture. Sourcing enough winter feed has become more challenging with each passing year. We are optimistic that 2023 will be the year that everything turns around! One thing is for certain that the cowherd has never been scrutinized and culled as hard as it has been in recent years. Either you get the job done or we don’t need you to be here. No excuses.
The search is constant for fresh genetics to add to our program. Whether it be a herd bull, female or AI sire, there isn’t a catalog in this country that we don’t read. We also have found that using sires bred and raised right here at SVS has moved our program forward. Not only are these bulls working incredibly well in our program, they are seeing very similar success and popularity throughout the industry. This is something that is extremely rewarding and we are very proud of!
This years offering is very diverse and offers something for everyone. There are a great selection of stout, hairy beef bulls that will increase quality and add pounds. As well as a solid offering of low birth weight bulls suitable for heifers or young cows. Give us a call, or better yet come and tour this elite pen of bulls yourself! We feel they are worthy of your consideration. Hopefully you will be able to join us on Sale Day!

1 SVS LINCOLN 10K
Homo Polled. SVS Lincoln 10K has a tremendous presence to him with his up headed, ‘look at me’ attitude. He is big middled, square hipped and very free moving. This group of brothers is truly worth the drive to see! The flush also produced 3 excellent females that we are very high on. These brothers should produce sound, functional cattle that are right for todays market. The daughters will be ideal females, we love our Tycoon daughters and the Sage’s are simply as good as it gets!
SVS CHICAGO 32K
Homo Polled. SVS Chicago 32K is the true power bull of the flush. He is very similar in type and kind to his brothers, as this flush is so consistent. We are so proud of Tycoon and the job he is doing in the industry. His progeny are so right for the times and full of performance and quality.
SVS KANSAS 40K
Homo Polled. SVS Kansas 40K is a complete made, power bull that we really like. A maternal sister to these brothers, by Walk This Way, has just calved and she will rank among the very top of our first calf heifers. 932G herself is a moderate, tanky female with an ideal udder. She is an impressive young cow that will continue building the Sage cow family’s legacy.

He is a big time herd bull prospect that we are really high on. He is full of performance and maternal, this group of brothers should be as predictable as they come.
Sunny Valley CRUISE 24K
Homo Polled. Cruise is a real interesting calf and one we really like. We seriously considered keeping him ourselves but when you see how many he is related to around here it gets tough to justify. He is a dark red hairy Tycoon son with plenty of length and when you look from behind a big wide top and hip that carries down into his quarter. Cruise is the calving ease option in the Tycoon sire group. With just an 82 lb birthweight and EPD’s that put him into the top 25% for calving ease & top 10% for birthweight. He has the potential to work on well developed heifers & young cows. His dam Sassy 75G is one of my favourite you cows. She boasts a good udder, moderate frame and real good feet. Her two year old Strut daughter just calved here the other day and looks great.
7 Sunny Valley GENESIS 22K
Homo Polled. Genesis is a bull that keeps getting better everyday. All summer when we were hauling water to the cows with bull calves, he is one of the calves that caught my eye. After weaning he has continued to develop into an all round easy doing herd sire. Its tough competition in the red pen this year but Genesis is one of many that have loads of potential. His dam has been a top producer since we purchased her from the good Maxwell program.
8 Sunny Valley MOGUL 46K
is a moderate stout individual that moves easily. His dam is a heavy milking young cow that came to us from the Meadow Acres Dispersal.

Homo Polled. 18K’s dam has been a real heifer producer up until now. 18K is her first bull and he is a good one. A real long dark red hairy Tycoon son. Hot Topic 32B was purchased out of Friday Night Lights as a calf and now has the start of a pretty good cow family here. Scurred
Sunny Valley ACE 70K
Ace is the only blazed face bull in what is a tremendous set of Tycoon sons. He is out of a smaller made Fullblood cow that puts all she has into her calves. Ace is a real good calf that is correct in every way. He should produce a great set of both bulls and females that have a good chance of being born with the blaze face.
Homo Polled. SVS Cortez 74K is a dark red, hairy, blaze faced bull with an awesome pedigree. This flush produced an awesome set of females with 2 sisters being Calf Champion and Reserve Calf Champion in the Intermediate Division at Agribition. We really like this bull and see a lot of potential even though his recip mother didn’t milk like she should have and gave him a rough start to life. Be sure to look this guy up sale day and buy him for how he will produce.
Homo Polled. SVS Marksman 95K is an end of February Rancher son with a moderate 83lb birth weight. He was purchased in dam from our pick of the Meadow Acres dispersal. As you can see by her picture, she is one good looking cow. Rancher is breeding extremely well and will continue to see use in our program for years to come. This long bodied, good footed bull will just continue to get better with age!
15 Sunny Valley GRAVITY 28K
Homo Polled. Gravity is a Tycoon son with some length and frame. He has plenty of muscle and that dark red color Tycoon’s are known for. His dam has been a tremendous bull producer. The last two years her Betts son’s have sold very well into a couple great herds, Gray Farms and Hicks Simmentals. And she just kicked out another one for next year.

Homo Polled. SVS Player 4K is a really hairy, smooth made Bond son that we are very high on. His two year old dam did a tremendous job and is an awesome young cow. She already has a standout Rancher son at her side this year. 4K combines two of our most productive cow families, Soda Pop and Sage. He should produce awesome females!

SVS AUSTIN 58K
Homo Polled. SVS Austin 58K is a stout made Bond son that has really turned it on since weaning. He is really good haired, thick made and free moving. His dam was selected out of the WLB dispersal and comes from one of their most popular cow families. We are really happy with the cattle that SVS Bond is producing, a true curve bender bull. We unfortunately lost him due to a breeding injury this past summer.
Homo Polled. SVS Trustee 89K is one of the younger bulls in the pen but you sure wouldn’t know it! He is long, smooth, sound and out of a high performance Jenna female. Rev was a walking herdsire that was a dark, moderate, impressive bull with an excellent foot. We unfortunately lost him to a breeding injury early in the spring. 89K is a good, honest, no nonsense bull that we can recommend with confidence.
Sunny Valley STRUT 13K
Homo Polled. The Strut sons are all cut from the same mold. They are smooth made correct bulls that will provide calving ease. 13K’s dam and granddam have been top producing females here. They have sent several bulls into top commercial herds.
Sunny Valley WALKER 55K
55K is a red Walk This Way son with a ton of hair. He is another one of the several red calving ease bulls in the sale. With just an 86 lb birthweight and EPD’s that rank him in the top 3 or 4% of the breed he should calve really well.

SVS ABIGALE 848F
Homo Polled. SVS Rush 79K is our only Slider bull on offer but he sure is a good one! A true calving ease bull, Slider is one of the most consistent heifer bulls we have used. We expect Rush 79K to follow in his sires footsteps and calve really well. He has a cool made, attractive, smooth build. We think very highly of 79K as we all know the value in having that reliable calving ease bull. Rush 79K is that bull. He is worth the second look!
23 Sunny ValleyBISHOP 8K
Homo Polled. If you are looking for a calving ease heifer bull that comes from an excellent female then check out Bishop. His dam is a first calf Betts female that we are really high on. She has a great udder which appears to happen a lot with Betts heifers. Betts has taken the industry by storm with his progeny winning many championships and numerous high sellers. Females like Cheyenne 3H are the reason why. Bishop has just an 80 lb. birthweight and EPD’s that put him in the top 1 or 2% of the breed while still providing adequate performance.
Sunny Valley HEAT 51K
Polled Purebred Bull WLLS 51K
18 Jan 2022
Homo Polled. 51K is one of the strong calving ease prospects in the offering. With just a 72 lb. birthweight and both his calving ease and birthweight EPD’s being in the top 1% of the breed he should be a good fit in the heifer pen. 51K is a stout made easy doing bull that comes in a moderate package. His 2 year old dam is a blazed faced Tribute daughter that is real deep bodied and has a good udder.
25 Sunny Valley MAGNET 48K
Hetero Polled. 48K is the only red Betts son in the sale this year. We wish we had more just like him. The bonus is that 48K comes with a splash of white on his face. His dam is a hardworking young Full Fleckvieh cow that does an exceptional job on her calves. You should see her first daughter now that she has calved. Using Betts on the Becky cow family really worked and should provide a greater chance of blaze faced progeny.
SVS WESTCOTT 8K
Polled. SVS Westcott 8K is the result of a pregnant recip purchase at Quinn Wilson’s dispersal. I really liked the 45A donor cow for her mass, power, good udder and big foot. 8K is a long bodied, performance bull. He will add pounds to a set of calves.
SVS RAPTOR 41K
Hetero Polled. SVS Raptor 41K is a dark red, bigger framed bull with just a 78lb birth weight. 854F is a moderate, dark, great uddered cow that always has a smaller calf. She has sons working for Lacasse Farms and Victor Tebay. 41K has a lot to offer in terms of calving ease with added growth. He would work great on a group of second calvers.

SUNNY VALLEY KANANASKIS 40H
SUNNY VALLEY KANANASKIS 73F
Hetrozygous Polled. 75K is a real dark red blaze faced Strut son that we really like. He provides plenty of calving ease as well as top end performance. His two year old mother did a great job on her first calf. She is a dark red full Fleckvieh that has such notables as Blueprint and Adonis in her pedigree. To top if off she is from the Kananaskis cow family. Imagine if you had a set of dark red very hairy steer calves off 75K to sell.
Sunny Valley STRUT 42K
Homo Polled. These Strut sons are built for calving ease. 42K is a long-sided smooth made bull that has a great haircoat. The cow family behind 42K have been around here for a long time and have produced very well. The same cow family as WLLS 35K.
Sunny Valley STRUT 74K

31 Sunny Valley OUTLOOK 32K
Dilutor Free. 32K is a bull we really have to admire for his awesome length, big square hip, dark red color and great hair coat. Length of body is one of the most important traits. It can really add pounds to your calves in the fall and is one of the things feedlot buyers look for. 32K’s dam is a really good first calver with a great udder and feet. She comes from a cow family that has produced very well. It started with 58X the mother of Sunny Valley Dakota. It has been mentioned more than once that Crystal 71H (32K’s dam) should be flushed.
32 Sunny Valley SHAMROCK 52K
Hetero Polled, Dilutor. 52K is a smooth made, long sided Shamrock son that packs quite a few pounds into a moderate package. With just an 86 lb. birthweight he provides a measure of calving ease with average performance. The light birth weights are typical of the Wendy cow family with many heifer bulls in 52K’s pedigree. Guerrero, Blueprint and Sargent. 52K should work well on a group of young cows.
33Sunny Valley SHAMROCK 64K
Dilutor Free. If you are looking for a polled Full Fleckvieh bull out of a great cow and cow family then take a close look at 64K. His dam, Crystal 81F, is one of my favorite young cows and she is a maternal sister to Sunny Valley Dakota. 64K is a thick topped easy doing calf that should work to add color and maternal traits to his progeny.

37 Sunny Valley BRAVO 41K
Dilutor Free. 41K is a direct son of Champs Bravo whose semen is very scarce. The Bravo sons and daughters have been very influential in the polled Full Fleckvieh genetics.
