GBT Angus Bull Sale
March 15-17, 2017

 


Our 2017 sale will include sons of Sinclair X-Ples 1XX30, GBT Locomotive 1354, GBT Frigid 1313 and GBT X-Plus 1318. This is a super even set of burly two year old herd sires. These closely related bulls are from momma's who have been selected first and foremost for fertility and functionality. Expect these guys to cover cows, stay sound and have the ability to pass on the convenience traits we've worked hard to infuse.

Once again, the bulls have been slow grown like you'd expect a breeding piece to be developed. No big feed pail to achieve over inflated numbers, no hair or feet trimming performed (because we prefer to fix that genetically) and no marketing gimmicks. Just real Aberdeen Angus bulls-the way they were meant to be.

The online sale format has been so well received we are continuing it again this year:

Our 2016 sale offering includes a large group of Sinclair X-Plus 1XX30 sons as well as sons and grand sons of Legacy, Time Out and Forte.  This offering represents a truly moderate framed set of bulls geared for efficient foraging capabilities.  We've grown out these herd bulls in a setting where they've been expected to forage early in the spring and late into the fall/early winter (December 20th) before we started feeding any hay.  The foundation (dams, grandams) to these bulls are pressured daily to ensure they can thrive with minimal input.  Short breeding season and discarding all opens and dries instils fertility (the single most important trait dictating profitability).  Zero tolerance for assisted calving and nursing instils maternal intelligence and proper udder structure.  The ability to do this annually for many years proves longevity and adaptive ability.  In short, these foraging matrons are never coddled and don't rely on a plethora of artificial props.  This goes a long way in developing bulls for our customers, that are regionally adapted and profitable.
