Since 2013 we have utilized an online bidding format to market our long yearling bulls. This venue has proven successful for us, our customers and our bulls. It’s cost effective, low stress and a fair way of valuing our offering without all the hubbub and confusion a live sale brings. Closer to sale time we picture and video each bull and add some pertinent foot notes and data on them and their dams. Look for our offering online 3-4 weeks prior to the sale at WWW.EDJEAUCTIONS.COM or better yet, come view them in person anytime!

What to expect from our bull’s:
We believe in true representation and do not clip our bull’s hair or trim their feet - ever. They are burly, hard muscled cowboy bulls ready for the real world. We never push for excessive gains, so you won’t find those typical fat waddling type here. Just properly developed, guaranteed sound and presented as bulls should be.

Bull development timeline:
  • December-January: After weaning, calves are put on free choice hay and allowed access to a natural, molasses based mineral tub and either a light pellet or grain ration to meet but not exceed energy requirements. We typically look for 2 pound per day gains. This tends to grow them nicely without putting on excess flesh.
  • April-September: Weather dependant, winter feeding is typically complete by mid April and cattle are moved to stockpiled perennial pastures with a good quality free choice loose mineral. Cattle are then seamlessly transitioned to summer grazing as the green spring flush begins to dominate the forage sward. From here to fall dormancy, all cattle are dependant solely on the forage growth nature provides along with a high quality loose mineral.
  • October/November: We will reintroduce a pelleted ration while they remain on perennial forages. In 2018, we experimented with a salt limited pellet that could be fed free choice. With a bit of tweaking to the ration, we were able to get consumption reduced to about 1% of their body weight. This has proven to be both an efficient way to deliver added energy when pastures are ramping down in quality as well as a consistent rate to benefit the bulls gut health. Instead of “shocking” the rumen with a one-time load of energy like what happens in a once or twice a day fed ration, our bulls are metered throughout the whole 24hr period.
  • December: Weather dependant, November/December is when we move the bulls back home with pastures replaced by free choice alfalfa/grass or greenfeed hay.
  • April: After the bull sale, bulls left here are sent to stockpile forage until delivery.

*Bull sale is always the third Friday of March*

REF SIRES
rolex1002 legacy624
Sinclair Plains Boss 5BO2
AAA Reg# 18152044
  • An impressive individual with the trademark Emulation added extension and fluid movement. 5BO2 is as royally bred as they come, tracing 45 times to the maternal phenom, Emulation 31. The benefits of linebreeding are many and consistency is one trait he shows great promise with. If you like them easy to handle, 5BO2 is an over achiever there as well. Expect his sons to add growth without excessive size and pack a genetic maternal punch.
GBT X Plus 1549
AAA Reg #18986503
  • 1549 is our replacement to further the goodness which his sire, Sinclair X-Plus 1XX30 laid down before him. 1549 carries the same easy fleshing tendencies, exceptional disposition and mass of body in a nice moderate package. He is backed by one of our nicest cows who is a combination of GBT Rolex 1002(by Right Time) and Legacy. She is a hard working, super easy fleshing, big middle, moderate female with a tidy udder design and yes, a superb disposition.

Chez of WYE UMF 10824
AAA Reg# 18627221
  • Chez was our pick of the 2017 offering from the storied WYE Angus herd of Queenstown, Maryland. His dam is the fabulous Carter of WYE embryo donor daughter; Clova of WYE UMF 8996. Intriguingly, she is also the mother to our Calum of WYE 10453 bull we purchased back in 2014. We love cattle with consistent production and the 8996 cow is just that. Chez was long, deep and smooth as a whip. Add to this an easy handling, admirable disposition. He also maintained flesh incredibly well while serving his first year as a yearling. Unfortunately, Chez was lost due to a breeding injury in 2019 so his progeny will be limited.
