How many times has a particular program or certain genetics caught your eye but either sire selection or sheer distance from the cattle impacted your interest in purchasing? I was trying to revolutionize the way we market our genetics nationally to breeders of all size and scope when it hit me... put the purchaser in the driver's seat with cutting edge genetics while eliminating the numerous issues that pertain to live animal transport. We are providing an unheard of opportunity to purchase a flush on our best females before we flush them in this unique opportunity. Hence the concept for our 2022 "Heart of the Herd" Flush Event was born.
In order to bring the best to the table, we are offering our best 4 heifers from the 2021 calf crop currently being developed at the Pennsylvania Livestock Evaluation Center. This group would be considered the "untouchables" in many herds. You will have the opportunity to flush the full sisters to Diesel, Chiseled and Turbo before we ever get the first calf on the ground out of these cutting edge genetics. Now here is the best part and why I refer to it as a "genetics by design" offering... YOU GET TO PICK THE SIRE!!! I am opening up our most elite genetics and giving you the wheel to see which direction you want to take them. Sire selection will be entirely at the discretion of the buyer in each of the 4 potential flushes... whether you are seeking high percentages, increased performance, maternal ability, pigmentation, or phenotype the choice is entirely up to you!
Your purchase price will include all expenses incurred in a flush with a guarantee of 6 conventional embryos with a cap of 10. In the event less than 6 are collected, the purchase price will be prorated or we will provide an option to flush again. If greater than 10 embryos are collected from the flush, the remaining embryos may be purchased for an additional cost of $175 each. Purchaser will be responsible for all shipping expenses associated with semen/embryo shipping. As a bonus, we will provide semen for each flush free of charge for any bulls currently in our tank inventory which include some hidden gems! Can't decide on a bull... winning bidder on each lot will have option to flush again by doubling the purchase price.
It is important to note that your purchase price will include the cost of the flush. There will be no hidden fees or expense as shipping will be only additional charge. Bidding will be completed via email to email@example.com and will end on 02/13/22 at 12:00 PM EST. Final Bid order will be determined by date/time email is received so get those bids in early! Opening bid will be $2,800 for each lot with $100 bid increments. We will not "run up" any bids as they will all go for $2,800 if there is only one bid per lot so bid with confidence. In the event that you are outbid within the final hour of the sale, a bid-off will take place between only those bidders on each lot after 12:00 PM EST. Half of the purchase price is due by February 23, 2022 with balance due at conclusion of flush. Bids will be maintained on this site daily and via our Facebook page. Note: pictures will be updated this week as calf photos were used.
SHERMN 5127 HEARTLAND 077 - If you judge a female by her dam... look no further than this 82% hetero. Heartland has been a favorite of all since birth and is out of the highest $ producing animal on the farm. This homo polled full sib to Diesel checks all the boxes. Whatever color you make them... i can guarantee they will be great!
SHERMN 5127 RIPTIDE 085 - Out of arguably the best Bar B Red Dog 838C daughter ever to grace the pastures, this feminine heifer is a can't miss option. Her dam is a maternal machine and is a Dam of Distinction for the AHA. Riptide is a full sib to Turbo who was purchased last April by Eastgate Ranch in Texas.
SHERMN 5127 VAQUERA 084 - Just because you do not have a recognizable full brother does not make you one of the greats. We reached way back into the tank to pull her dam's sire NJW Z17 Vaquero 25C in 2015. As a first calf heifer, Vaquera's dam ratioed 123% as a first calf heifer! Don't miss this "blast from the past".
SHERMN 5127 MISSING PIECE 078 - A standout since birth, Missing Piece just always had "that look" when you scanned across the pasture. Her WLB Lego 83XT 90X dam may be the prototypical beef cow. Ideal size with and immaculate udder with performance to spare. I would rather show her genetics than show against them!
Don't wait... email your bid today and take control of this unique opportunity to infuse Sherman Beef Cattle genetics into your herd!
