Sioux Pass Livestock & Grain
  April 01 , 2018 to April 04 , 2018

To All,

I want to thank you for taking the time to look at our sale offering. Let me tell you about these bulls. They were weaned the middle of September on home raised pea hay and given two rounds of vaccinations. In early October after the second set of shots these bulls were turned out on a brome grass hay meadow with only a mineral package for supplement.

When the snow came we started feeding our pea hay and started the bulls on home raised speltz. Mostly because I miscalculated, the bulls were only being fed 4 1/2 pounds of grain by the 1st of February. At this point we moved the bulls to Weschenfelders feedlot in Shepard, Montana.

 February was a tough month with winter weather, a real stress test. That said, we are very happy with our offering and feel that these bulls are a testament to our program. The bulls are naturally thick, easy fleshing and sound. They are standing on excellent feet and exhibit sound, correct structure.

To fit the management of many of our customers, we strive to produce calving ease bulls that can be used on heifers for two or three years. Since we emphasize early weaning and yearling growth, producers can then rotate these bulls onto the mature cow herd and not sacrifice pay weight. Light birth weight cattle with performance is the first part of the equation. Getting these cattle to shut down at a reasonable mature size, is the second. We may not have coined the phrase “curvebender” but we have always subscribed to the philosophy. “Environmental selection” is a phrase we will take credit for. Our winter environment is harsh and our cows have had to produce being wintered entirely on hay and straw with snow sometimes being the only water source. We have produced an efficient cow herd because only the efficient cattle remain.

Our direction is reinforced by the $W value calculated by the AAA. An index we feel best meets the needs of the western commercial industry. This is not to say we don’t watch end product merit, we do. We have carefully added carcass value to the equation. The disposition of these bulls is excellent, and the 35 years we have been breeding cattle has built a herd to fit the commercial industry in the rugged western environment.

They will work for you!

Thank You,

Carter Miklovich
