3 Thistledew Cattle Company WELCOME Once again thank you for taking the time to evaluate our breeding program. This has been a tough year but the best cattle prices we have ever witnessed will soon be upon us. I want to stress our main value to you is our breeding program. It is not to tout a bull s ra-ra pedigree or sell you a fat bull that looks like he has a lot of muscle. But, rather to help you NET MORE $$$ from a methodical, economic and reality driven approach to commercial beef production. Our bulls selling are not perfect. No bulls are. What they will do is deliver what we tell you. The drought started for us last fall and it killed our weaning weights so we decided not to publish them. If you want to really choose the right bull for your program I suggest you call me as I can point you in the right direction or no direction if we don t have a bull that meets your specs. As for the heifers I want to remind you this is a long term program. We have sunk a ton of effort into developing them and they have been culled ruthlesslessly. There are some really nice purebred cows selling. We will provide DNA cards for any calves born to unknown sires as we run multiple bulls in our breeding traps. Our goal is not to have zillions of buyers, just the high quality, net profit driven ones whom enjoy enduring and profitable relationships that last a lifetime. Thanks again, Chris, Melinda, Isabel and James Jeffrey 100% GUARANTEE: We pride ourselves on our quality, integrity and well thought-out breeding program. All bulls selling for $3,000 or more will be covered with a site unseen, 100 percent guarantee. Bulls will be delivered to you in March, and if you re not happy, we ll write out a check to you immediately. Or, you can pick out another bull from our breeding stock. OUR WARRANTY: Upon satisfactory delivery, all bulls selling for $3,000 or more are covered under our First Breeding Season Guarantee. Bulls covered will receive a sale credit minus salvage value. Bull can be returned for a suitable replacement, if available. Breeding season is defined as the 60 day period following the first turnout of bulls. If you wish to see any bull not pictured, please and request a YouTube video link. PO Box 449 Joliet MT Christopher and Melinda Jeffrey e:

16 Thistledew Cattle Company The Common Sense Cowman Breeding Program For years we followed the conventional wisdom that what we wanted were balance trait cows. We bred, owned and propagated balanced trait cows pure maternal and growth cows. Our experience led us to the conclusion that all we made was the jack of all trades, master of none cow. We realized it took us eight years to break even on a cow. By owning the balance trait cow the average cowman is paying for terminal traits he only needs in the calves he sells. (See example.) The cowman was owning a cow only half as good as he needed. This led us to develop the Common Sense Cowman Breeding Program, where the cowman owns 100 percent maternal cows (CowMakers) and sells calves weaning off at 65-70% of their mother s weight with outstanding growth and carcass traits. What you sell is sired by our PowerBulls that have 100% focus on our maternal traits. In other words, own the maternal trails and sell the terminal traits. The PowerBull The CowMaker Bull Exceptional, highly proven growth traits Unrelated as possible to the CowMaker Line for maximum within-breed heterosis High in carcass qualities desirable to the feeder/packer High feed efficiency traits feedlot tested Pedigree easily recognized by the feeder/ packer and is easy to sell Can be highly uniform through the use of full brothers Linebred for consistency and uniformity Genetically possesses traits for outstanding teat and udder quality Significant longevity genetics Capable of siring females weaning 65-70% of their body weight (when bred to PowerBulls) Stacked generations of high fertility genetics Highly docile Possesses rock-solid calving ease traits The Cowmaker sires moderate framed 1,250 lb females with easy fleshing genetics These are changes you make with your brain not your back or your wallet. 14 Tuesday, November 13, 2012 Thistledew Cattle Company
