BULLS FOR SALE

Greetings . . .

to our friends in cattle production. We hope you were all able to weather the last few months and keep your heads above first the snow drifts then the floods.

On Saturday, March 30, we will have an Opening Day Private Treaty Sale on the yearling bulls here at the farm using a silent auction format. The bulls can be viewed after 10 AM that day, with final bids taken at noon. In the event you are unable to attend, bids can be left earlier at 515-379-1499. There will be a $50 discount applied to bulls picked up the day of the sale. Two-year-old bulls are also available.

The catalog is arranged in a two-line entry format. When reading the listing, the heading in bold matches the data in bold, etc. Under each EPD is the percentile which explains how this bull ranks within the breed. For example, a 25% under birth wt. means this bull is in the top 25% of all reg. Red Angus bulls of this age group. The most recent EPDs may be found by looking up a bull’s entry in their registry. Registration numbers for each bull are listed, and we encourage you to visit either the Red Angus Association of America (www.redangus.org), or the American Simmental Association (www.simmental.org, www.herdbook.org) to find further pedigree information as well as performance ratios and data found under the Expanded Report selection at the bottom of the page.

Weather has delayed much of our late winter work here, resulting in later dates than usual for working the bulls. Weights and ultrasound scans were behind schedule, causing delays in data processing. Therefore, the Red Angus EPDs in the catalog were from the March 9 update, and do not contain the yearling weight and ultrasound performance data. EPDs which do contain that data will be available after the April 2 processing update. This might result in discrepancies between the catalog data and the association data for these animals after that date, especially in regard to growth and carcass traits. Also, the DNA samples for the Simmental and Composite bulls were shunted aside this winter; consequently we are still waiting for genomic enhanced data for them.

To confuse matters even more, this fall we had genomic tests done for one of our top Red Angus cows, and it was discovered that her sire was not her sire. This has impacted all of her progeny in our herd, especially her son, FMB Z10 63C, who is the sire of several of the bulls we are offering. While we still believe in the quality of these animals, it has caused an eighth of their pedigrees to go missing as we work to figure out a solution to the issue.

Francis, Karol, and Cindy

Employment Opportunity:  We are always looking for full-time and flexible part-time help. If you or someone you know is interested in working in the cow-calf sector or getting into cattle production, please let us know.
