Letter from the Sales Manager
Welcome to our second Southeastern Beefmaster Breeders Association performance bull sale in Arcadia, Florida, Friday, September 29, 2017.
We took possession of 100 bulls in February of this year at Channarock Farm in Rockfield, KY. These bulls have been developed on a diverse program of grass, silage and wheat pasture. This will assure the buyers that the bulls will keep a better body condition during your breeding season.
Each bull has been tested for several traits and an average daily gain. Two groups will sell this year as they were tested in a Fall 2015 group and Spring 2016. In the catalog you will see each group consist of a overall test ratio and a daily gain ratio with 100 being the average. The final score consists of the following:
- $M (maternal) EPD (fertility, calf growth, milk)
- $T (terminal) EPD (growth and carcass merit)
- Rib Eye Area
- % IMF
- Average Daily Gain
Each bull has been carcass scanned. The carcass and EPD's are listed on each bulls lot. Each bull comes with a Breeding Soundness Exam and Trich test. They are guaranteed to be breeders for 120 days from date of purchase. It will be the largest offering of black Beefmaster bulls to sell this year ( 30 head of the 76). Approximately half of the bulls selling are polled.
The bulls and females will arrive in Arcadia Tuesday the 26 of September and available for you to view (in traps) Wednesday thru Friday. They will be housed in the barn Friday morning.
Also selling are 75-80 Beefmaster cross heifers bred to Oak Hollow Angus bulls (low birth weight and high calving ease direct EPD). They will sell in groups and are crossed with Angus (black and red), Charolais and cross breds. The Oak Hollow bulls were turned in with the heifers on June1, 2017.
Join us Thursday evening if you can for a meal at the Arcadia barn.
Please call me with any questions you may have. We have tried to present you with a product to insure your investment success.
After September 15 you can go to Sebba.com to see the video of the bulls and bred heifers.
