2018 Performance Bull Sale


Greetings,

Hi, I hope this letter find you and yours well. First, let me thank you for your interest in Ishee Bred Simmentals and Sim-Angus breeding program. Cattle prices are slowly improving each week and consumers are still eating beef. As the economy continues to improve, people will continue to eat our product and drive prices up even more. The bulls we sell this year are breeding for the future calf crop that you will sell!

Please allow me to tell you a little of our breeding history. We are 4th generation cattle breeders and started A.I.ing performance Simmentals in 1981 and now Sim-Angus. For the first 17 years, we only utilized artificial insemination breeding to the most proven bulls in the U.S. Since that time, we have continued to use A.I., embryo transfer, and our own high performing bulls to finish our breeding season. We have always selected for easy calving, heavy muscled, big bodied cattle with great maternal qualities. In the last few years we have also selected for carcass traits. We have sold cattle all over this country (KS, OK, NE, OR, MT, WY, SD, TX, LA, FL, GA, NJ, AL,MS and others). We have also shipped Ishee cattle internationally as well. Our bulls have been featured in major A.I. studs; A.B.S., SELECT SIRES, ACCLEREATED GENETICS, GENEX and SEMEX in Canada. Several of these bulls were co-owned with our customers who shared in semen sale revenues!

We also complimented our genetic selection with a common sense approach selecting for polled, solid color, moderate frames, good feet and legs, docility with early sexual maturity, and carcass superiority which all make you $$$.

On Saturday, February 24th, 2018 we will be having our annual K.I.S. sale (Keep It Simple). We invite you to come and invest in our 36 years of disciplined, selective planned matings (some of which only we have). In order to give all interested buyers a chance at each bull being sold, we offer a little different sale format for selling our bulls (see enclosed flyer). Starting Saturday, February 17th, each bull will be have a base price placed on them. You are invited to come and choose the bull or bulls that you are interested in, and you can place a bid on them from that day on. Final bids are due on Saturday, Feb 24th at 11:00 AM. If more than one person bids on a bull, the bull selected will be bid off between interested buyers. You can bid by phone if you are not present that day. Buyers are welcome to bid on any or all bulls. If you get the bull you want first, you are not required to bid on the others you have placed your number on. 

Thank you again for your interest and confidence in our decades old breeding program. We look forward to serve your genetic needs, and we are grateful for all the interest in Ishee Bred Genetics.

Sincerely,

Tim Ishee
