LaBatte Simmentals Buys New Herd Bull


Dear Friends and Customers:  

We are very pleased to announce the purchase of a new herd bull to add to our breeding program. On February 26th, we purchased Lot 100, LFE Hot Iron 812W for $22,500, at Lewis Farms 26th Annual Bull Sale in Spruce Grove, AB. We received full possession and 2/3 interest, in partnership with Oberle Farms and Soderglen Ranches. (This is the same partnership which owns herd bull KBR Black Exciter 758T)

Below are the photograph and the footnotes from Lewis Farms' Sale Catalogue:

"Hot Iron" has been a favorite from birth and has gotten better with age. He was named Res. Champion Bull at Farmfair under judge Justin Morrison and at Agribtion he stood second in class. He's got the herd bull look. Huge ribbed, long spined, smooth made, clean throughout his lines, sound on the move. He's a bull we think is fault free and has a huge future ahead of him. He weaned off his dam at 904 lbs and weighed 1450 lbs a day before his first birthday. His dam, (LFE BS Black Beauty 209S BPG669057) is a milky Bravado who proved her worth with Hot Iron. She raised a 3/4 brother last year going to C.G. Paulgaard Farms.   

As you may know, we have just launched our new website, which you can find at www.LaBatteSimmentals.com. The launch was timed to co-ordinate with our 31st Annual Bull & Female Sale to be held at 1:00 P.M. on Friday, March 4th, 2011 at
Johnstone Auction Mart, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
We look forward to seeing you at the sale.

You are cordially invited to visit our website where you can link to the 2011 Sale catalogue and you may also link to the catalogue from the Transcon Livestock website. Please contact our webmaster if you are interested in a reciprocal link between your website and ours.
