Thank you for taking time from a busy schedule to investigate our offering in the 37th Cow Power. This is an exciting group of females; we were able to dig into the heart of the three- and four-year-old females deeper than ever, put together more choices of bred heifers, and include a select group of heifer calves that I am confident will turn big profit over their lifetime. The past year has been better than ever to be raising Shorthorn cattle. More conversations have been had with non-traditional users of Shorthorn genetics and they are buying bulls and females at a fast rate. Also, more of our purebred clients have had more than ever before. Even with the fall of feeder and fat prices in 2016, we marketed a larger volume of Shorthorn bulls than any other year in our history. These new cattlemen continue to demand more information on the seedstock they purchase. They are asking the tough questions, and have been unrelenting in their quest to identify hassle-free seedstock that can deliver profit. The cattle in the next few pages will do that. The steers we feed out through the Tri-County Steer Co-op continue to impress. This year they generated an average profit per head of $408. That is more than $100 above the feedlot average. In the last fifteen years, retained ownership on the males that are not suited to be herdsires has been the profitable choice every time. Thank you again for allowing us to tell the Waukaru story. We aim to provide the facts on the cattle; no predictions without ample data. We hope you can be with us on September 16, 2017, here at the farm in Rensselaer, IN. Please bring the family on the evening of September 15 for dinner and conversation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the Jordans or sale staff.
