Selling 14 yearling Angus bulls
 5 young Angus cow calf pairs

Brian & Ruth, Brad & Jackie Weaver, Josh & Julie Stilley

Dear Cattle Producers and Friends,

We want to take this opportunity to welcome all of you to our Twin Oaks Angus Farm Bull sale. We are very pleased with the development of the genetics we are offering today.

 

We know that you are aware of what it takes to stay in the cattle business and the numbers that are the most important to you is the number of dollars made on your cattle. We are confident that you will find the quality offered here will help you in making your cattle purchase decisions.

We appreciate those who have bought bulls from us in the past and look forward to working with you and new buyers.

The cattle were weaned on a high roughage starter ration. It is a 50 Neg balanced ration. We left them on this throughout the development of the bulls and heifers. The bulls were fed to gain 3 to 3 Ĺ pounds per. On a side note: our heifers are fed to gain 2 pounds per day.  We do not feel it is good for seed stock to be fed a high energy diet or fed to gain as much weight as they possibly can as we think it hurts the longevity, fertility, and maternal traits they are bred to have.

All our Angus has been tested negative for PI-BVD.
All our Angus bulls and heifers are developed in large dirt lots where they have plenty of room to exercise.
All our Angus bulls must pass a Breeding Soundness Exam given by our area veterinary that also includes a minimum scrotal measurement to qualify for our sale.

We have always put our focus on our cowherd. We know good bulls come from good cows. We do not believe in single trait selection be it birth weight only, milk only, performance only, or carcass only.  We strive for balance traits where the offspring show their potential in developing muscle, depth and length of body, easy fleshing, and performance.

We have developed our cowherd for over 20 years where high producing cow families have been identified. We know you still sell cattle by the pound. Muscle weighs more than fat. 

First Breeding Season Guarantee
Since there is no longer affordable insurance available on breeding bulls, we will no longer be responsible for the injury of the bull for their first breeding season by acts of nature such as lightning or floods, or the management of the buyer for example: in the case that the bull is injured by fighting, or running with multiple bulls, or gets hit from the side while trying to breed cows, or jumps a fence, or comes up lame, or over use of a young bull (over use will be determined by a veterinary), or excessive heat, etc.  We cannot control this and will not be responsible.

These bulls will be sold sound and vet inspected. If a problem of soundness is noticed when being sold, it will be announced from the block and the buyer assumes responsibility of his/her purchase if he/she wishes to purchases the bull.

 

If the Angus bull is not injured, we will guarantee the bull to breed the first breeding season. The first breeding season is defined as a 90-day period when the bull was first turned out. If the bull will not breed and is not injured and is verified as a non breeder by a vet, the buyer will have the option of a replacement bull if available, or 100% of his purchase price as credit toward the purchase of another bull at our next available sale. Full salvage price goes to Twin Oaks Angus Farm.

 

If there are any questions you have about the cattle, the data collected, or if we can be of any assistance in your selection please contact us.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in our program,


Brian & Ruth, Brad & Jackie Weaver, Josh & Julie Stilley

Tag 103  One of the two Big Rok Ole 450 sons in our sale. Again, these bulls were developed on a 50 NEG diet for your benefit. You will see how lean these bulls are from their ultra sound Rib Fat and Rump Fat figures. They have been developed not pushed.

We lost his momma, a 1st calf heifer, late in the summer from lightning but look at the natural depth and thickness of this bull that is bred in not fed on.

It sure looks like the Bandolier 633 daughters are carrying on the same performance traits as his sireís daughters. Check out the weaning and yearling weight this bull turned in.

Excellent cows behind this bull. The GKAF Lucyís are a top cow family in the Gary & Sandy Krauth herd in Prescott, IA.

Here is a heifer bull that is as stout made as any performance bull and that turned in some real good performance weights and ultra sound figures on a 50 NEG diet.

Strong cow power behind this bull. Save all the daughters for your next replacements.

The Bandolierís and Oleís cross very well for us.

He had a ways to go to catch his contemporaries and his figures are pretty good for the start he had in his life. This line bred Bandolier son should sire good performance in his calves.

Tag 119  A Bandolier 633 son who turned in another good set of figures for both performance and ultra sound on a 50 NEG diet. As you can see it is a Bandolier 633 and Big Rok Ole combination that I mentioned before that works well for us. We also have found that when we double up the Bandolier in a pedigree it gives us the type and kind that works well in the pasture and feed yard.

He was purchased from Big Rok Angus because of the strong maternal traits behind him. He has done a real good job for us. Look at the data this son has turned in. Polly may be one of the most sought after cow families in the Angus breed at this time. A deep, thick Northern Lad out of a Bandolier x Polly cross cow.

Tag 124  Calving ease deluxe. A Northern Lad son out of a Mytty In Focus daughter. This bull was a twin with a heifer and the mother of this bull did a good job raising twins and getting bred back on time.

Our Lucy cows continue to work their hearts out so saving replacements out of this bull would be a very good decision.

Space does not allow listing all the good things this cow has done for our cowherd through her and her genetics. She is 10 years old and is raising a Sinclair Fortunate Son bull calf that will probably be retained for our own use.

You won't find any manicure jobs on these cattle. We believe the cattlemen and cattle women can see how good the cattle are without a fancy haircut. I like to see them in their everyday clothes so that is how you will see them in this sale.

 

The last week of April we treated the cattle with Dectomax

 

Our cows are vaccinated with Pfizerís PregGauard Gold FP 10 which is a MLV vaccine that includes IBR BVD PI3 BRSV Vibro Lepto.

 

The bulls are vaccinated with ViraShield 6 Vibro Lepto Novartis.

 

While the calves are nursing the cows we vaccinate our calves with Novartis Vira Shield 6 killed and Schering-Plough Clost. 7 way with Pinkeye killed.

 

After the calves are weaned we give two rounds of Bovi-Shield Gold 5.
