Comments: This sale is a special one for us and a great way to highlight some of our hottest most elite genetics and mix it with what is truly one of the most enjoyable times of the year for us in Christmas. Most importantly I couldn’t have found any better of a choice to highlight this sale then this star studded, money in the bag gift all wrapped up and ready for you to open. Angela is Fresh off her Louisville win and ready to let this amazing opportunity go to work for you. We have seen the impact the 0641 cow has left on the Charolais breed let alone what she has done in the whole cattle industry. Her true cow power and value is unprecedented to any of the donors in the country. On top of it all the Monopoly x Firewater x 0641 combo has left so many high sellers and most importantly so many champions along the way.The monopoly x firwater mating has clicked so well just like our past champion steer at the Hoosier Beef Congress for the martin family that sold in our fall sale. Along with him there have been many Champion state fair steers across the country, numerous jackpot wins for both the males and the females, and countless composite females claiming there fair share of banners at the majors as well. Now we pick up the branches and let you get your piece of history with one of the best daughters from this great family. I can easily say we don’t just have an 0641 daughter we have “Angela” that impressed so many in the stands and in the barn at the North American. Massive bodied, with the right amount of muscle and look and what sets her apart from the rest is her overwhelming footsized matched with an extraordinary structural build. This White beauty is so good at the ground, good from the side and good on paper, this white angle will be shining bright from atop anyone’s Christmas Tree. Male or female here your gonna wish you own them cause you will have a hard time trying to buy them out of someone else’s pasture!!!! Make the smart move and put her on top of your tree and shine over the rest cause this mating will do just that.

Comments: I really don’t feel like I need to write a book on what this mating can do for you and has already produced for us, but with so many highlights its going to be hard not too. We at first question how the Maine bulls like I80 would work on our simmy donors and I’m sure glad I didn’t let Tice talk me out of flushing these donors this way. As you can see what the I-80 x K1 daughters have accomplished in Louisville and Kansas City this year for Kennedy Core. That alone leaves me a believer when that female accomplished my number one goal in this business and that was raising a supreme female in both two of what I consider the biggest shows you can win. If that isn’t enough convincing look at the full sib to these eggs and to me that’s all the convincing I need to keep flushing this powerhouse this way and no other. This mating alone last year popped out an 18,000 heifer( pictured), 10,000 and a 7500 heifer, while also selling 2 bulls for an avg of 7000. Realize those where the only 5 calves out of that flush that year, that’s a 10,000 avg on full sibs to these eggs and if you can’t turn that into a profit then we probably don’t need to be in this business. The high selling of the trio of females Penelope’s Dream (pic) owned by Gregg Haas had an exceptional year in the showring claiming a bunch of banners in both the mainetainer and the percent simmy ring. Toppping it off with being selected 3rd overall female in Columbia City, reserve maintainer Kentucky Beef Expo, and reserve grand maintainer at KILE this fall. On top of all this showring success this female is about to head into our donor pen this winter and you can look forward to a genetic offering out of her before too long. If all the daughters come out looking like Penelope then your going to bet set for years to come. This female might just be the biggest bodied, freshest designed, soundest big female I have been around. I know i am as excited to get more of these on the ground as Clark Griswold was when he lit up his house because when it works likes this its sure to be bright!!!!

Greatest bull market in the U.S. economy is the beef business

Author: Kristy

by Troy Marshall in My View From The Country


It’s no surprise that bull prices have kept pace with the incredible cattle prices we have seen in 2014. The improved weather conditions of this year in many parts of the country, as well as increased expansion, and even tax incentives, have all contributed to the higher bull prices.

Using the sales data submitted to the American Angus Association (AAA), registered bulls so far in this fiscal year have averaged $5,982, up considerably from the previous year’s average of $4,425. What makes that data especially impressive is that the $1,500 increase has been earned on a larger number of bulls.
Meanwhile, registered females are up even more dramatically. They have averaged $6,202, a huge jump from last year’s figure of $3,176.

Percentage-wise, bull prices are still trailing calf prices. However, from a sheer dollar standpoint, the increase in the purebred market has been larger than any class of cattle. Year-to-date prices on the animals reported to the AAA shows an average of $5,694 compared to $3,755 a year ago. That’s just shy of a $2,000 increase per head.

While the futures market and cash market have stumbled a little with the typical end-of-year slump, expectations have not. Everyone by now has heard of the various sets of commercial females that have traded at levels that simply are unprecedented. While there have been commercial bred females trading in the $4,000 range or higher, those are still outliers in a significant way. However, comparing year-to-year averages tells a pretty dramatic story. Almost any class of cattle is up 25% over last year, with the majority up 30-50%.

With Russia’s economic woes growing and China’s economy slowing down, America – despite pretty disappointing growth – appears to be the place to invest once again. That should be a boon to our economy in the short term. And the greatest bull market in the American economy is the beef business.

Denver Aims To Transform National Western Complex Into Year-Round Facility

Author: Kristy

DENVER (CBS4) - Denver Mayor Michael Hancock on Thursday outlined plans to spruce up the National Western Complex and turn it into a facility that hosts events throughout the year.

Mostly synonymous with the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo, the venue isn’t used much beyond two weeks during that annual event. The stock show attracts hundreds of thousands every winter, but the site sits dormant for much of the year.

The mayor’s plan would renovate or replace many of the current buildings on the 109-year site. Improvements would include a new arena and stockyards that would double as an outdoor events center. The city also wants to add a transit center and move railroad tracks to increase space near the river.

“The long-range, multi-phase plan for the new National Western Center is to create a dynamic, year-round campus of new and adaptive reuse buildings that, at full build-out, will drive nearly 1 million additional visitors on an annual basis,” Hancock said at a news conference on Thursday.

The city on its website calls for increasing the campus to 130 acres. The city said the center will “support Denver’s global standing as a world-class hub for the Western way of life.”

The plan will likely take more than a decade, the mayor said. Costs and sources for capital are unclear, but Hancock said all revenue sources — including asking for tax increases — are possible.

How A New Calf Verification Program Can Equal More Money At Sale Time

Author: Kristy

by Jamie Purfeerst in Cattle Economics

Getting paid more for value added to calves throughgenetics has been a long, slow slog — one littered with confusion, busted promise and more than a few frayed nerves.

That’s why early reception to Top Dollar Angus (TDA) is so encouraging.

Tom Brink — formerly president and COO of J&F Oklahoma Holdings Inc., which includes JBS Five Rivers feedlots — launched TDA in August to certify the gain and marbling value of feeder calves (see “Paying for Genetic Verification” in next month’s issue).

Brink has commitments from more than 35 feedlots to buy more than 1 million TDA-certified calves annually for a $50/head premium. The market will decide the ultimate premium, but premiums beyond that mark have been common thus far. The program offers higher prices for calves if there is verification of handling.

At BEEF, we’re proud to celebrate the ranching lifestyle. Enjoy 20+ photos from our readers that showcase their country home. Enjoy the gallery now.

 

Unlike most previous attempts to get paid more for calves destined for premium programs, there’s no need to retain partial ownership. It’s cash money, up front, based on objective measures verifying the added value.

Objective data are the key to TDA. The lack of such data is also why the road to this point has been so endless.

Proof, says Brink, is the key to premiums. “I estimate 10%-15% of the cattle purchased by commercial feedlots are what I call ‘relationship’ cattle. These are cattle where the feedlot and producer know one another, where the feedlot knows about the producer’s cowherd and how his calves perform in the feedlot historically,” he explains.

Conversely, cattle feeders generally know little about the other 85%-90% of feeder cattle that come to them.

“As cattle feeders, we buy cattle that we know so little about that we buy on the average,” Brink explains. He oversaw the purchase of hundreds of thousands of cattle this way in his previous position.

A typical phone call might run something like this: “I’ve got four loads coming off grass in three weeks. They’re 80% black with 10% reds and 10% Char-cross …Well there might be a few head of Hereford in there, too.”

Maybe the caller also mentions the vaccination program. However, without documentation, the feedlot will figure that little has been done in the health area.

“If we hear something in the conversation that makes us think they can feed above the average, we might lean into them a little harder. However, as cattle feeders, we have limited objective information on the majority of the cattle we purchase,” Brink explains. “What ends up happening is you pretty much bid them on the average.

And Brink points out that as a feedlot manager, you live on the averages. “You pay as close to what your breakeven spreadsheet [based on historic average feeding performance for that class, sex and weight of cattle put on feed the same month] says you can pay that day. You’ll get good surprises and bad surprises, but across enough groups of cattle, you’ll be OK. Some of those cattle are better than average, but as a cattle feeder, you have no way of knowing,” he says.

The further away from the producer, the more commingling occurs and the larger groups become, the odds of knowing much are even less.

Brink likens this information void to being offered the choice among four cups of coffee. One cup is the best money can buy. Another is a 3-day-old gut-buster. The other two are, well, average.

You can pay a significantly higher price, a significantly lower price, or something in between and then choose a cup. The dilemma is you don’t know which cup is which, or which price should go with which one.

Chances are you won’t pay a premium price because the odds are against you selecting the premium cup. So, you’ll pay as little as you can and take your chances. Or, you’ll pay an average price for each cup and take the good with the bad.

“You’d pay more if you knew more,” Brink says. “That’s exactly the concept I’m trying to bring to feeder-cattle marketing through Top Dollar Angus.”
