    Red & Black Simmental Consignment Sale.

    Rob Holowaychuk

    Welcome to the Checkers 20th Anniversary Sale. When the Checkers inaugural sale was held in 1995, it was a somewhat new concept that has evolved into Canadas longest running Red & Black Simmental consignment sale. Checkers has done an unbelievable job of identifying breed-leading genetics and has been the premier event when it comes to marketing live cattle, semen and embryos. There have been as many or more foundation genetics marketed through Checkers as any other sale venue in Canada. The 2014 offering is equally as impressive as any offering in the first twenty years. We have four 2014 bull calves with the potential to develop into breed-leading sires. The female offering is as stout and appealing as any Simmental sale has ever had the pleasure to merchandise. The bred heifers are all safe to exact breeding dates and possess the pedigrees and services to create a genetic combination to be truly rewarding. Females that carry the potential to return their purchase price annually with each calf. The open heifers are truly sweetheart females that can go in your show string, but more importantly, possess the potential to equal their year older sisters in the bred heifer section. A set of heifers that sincerely represent where the Simmental industry is at today. The pick of the 2015 heifer calves from Lewis Farms is a rare opportunity to make your personal choice from one of the front-end programs in todays beef industry. The genetics on offer from the Frozen Genetic Vault by way of semen and embryos, represent old proven genetics that are rarely available in the Simmental breed, as well as the most sought-after genetics in the Simmental breed today. All being highly proven in the interesting and profitable world of raising beef cattle. I would like to personally thank all of the consignors and buyers for 20 years of Checkers. It has certainly been an honor and a pleasure for Bouchard Livestock to have been a part of this event. We are very familiar with and proud of the genetics on offer, and we welcome your calls and inquiries. Should you require assistance or representation sale day we will be honored to represent your needs with the utmost of professionalism. DLMS will also offer Checkers 2014 on line. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2015. - Brian Bouchard

    CHOICE OF 2015 BORN HEIFERS AT LEWIS FARMS1Its been years since we have opened up the entire herd for someone to pick a heifer from. We will calve out just over 600 Simmental cows between our winter and summer calving periods, over 50 of which are embryo babies from matings we are extremely high on. 2015 born calves will be sired by up and comers: Commissioner - who was our 2014 high seller, Discovery - MRLs 2014 high seller, Big Time - Ashworths 2014 high seller, Bounty - our second high seller in 2014. We will also have a handful of calves by Reload and Red Mountain. Our walking bull battery may be at its strongest right now. It includes Springsteen, Gotham, Beer Money, Goon, Ray, Power Wagon, Commander and Armour. A few more bulls get added to the summer breeding including Advance, Cobra, two Full Throttle sons, Chunk, Badlands, Sting, and LFE 496T. Our cow herd speaks for itself with many generations stacked of productive cow families. We are extremely strict on our cow herd and cull hard. Structure is our number one thing in our cattle along with longevity, foot size and shape, udder quality, fleshing ability, attitude and overall ability to produce a saleable calf each year. We are opening up both calving groups to the successful buyer to choose a 2015 born heifer calf at LFE. Selection of a winter born must be made by September 1, 2015 and on a summer born March 15, 2016. Please feel free to give anyone at LFE a call about this exciting lot.

    Lewis Farms was founded in 1932, just west of Edmonton. In the early 1970s the farm expanded to include the Spruce Grove operation. We also now have a place in the Sangudo area where a large portion of our summer grazing as well as our summer calving takes place. We grow seed potatoes, grain, canola, forages and run a large breeding operation of Simmental and Angus cattle. The Simmental influence started here in the late 60s and 70s with the use of imported semen. Now semen, embryo and walking herd sires are all utilized. Our breeding program develops Red, Black and Fullblood Simmentals as well as Red and Black Angus. Our Annual Bull Sale runs the last Saturday in February, offering over 300 Simmental and Angus bulls. We invite everyone to our upcoming 30th Annual Bull Sale, February 28,2015 at 1:00pm. We are fortunate to have been involved with the innovative Checkers Sale since its inception and are proud to be a part of the 20th Anniversary Sale.
