Sale Info

Industry Involvement:

Evan has always liked the camaraderie in the cattle business. He and Linda become lifetime members of the Canadian Simmental Association on March 24, 1977. Evan was a founding member of the Yellowhead Simmental Association, consigned many champions and high sellers to their sales for more than 15 years and took his turn as President for three years. Sun Rise was a guest consignor to the Target Association Sale and the Yuletide Special Sale with M & J Farms and Pheasantdale Simmentals. More recently, Sun Rise has been a guest consignor to the Spring Creek Simmentals and Guest Consignors Bred Heifer (fall) Sale and the Proudly Western (spring) Bull Sale.


Our 2016 Proudly Western Bull Sale Consignments

Click here to link to the 2016 Proudly Western Sale Catalogue

The quality of this sale offering has developed to where breeders can be confident it's not just another bull sale. We are proud to participate in this sale where you have numerous opportunities to find the special one.

Captain Morgan has had a very positive influence on the strength of our bull pen. Six of our seven Captain Morgan sons were selected by T-Bar to be part of this powerful sale offering. Our other consignment was by Liner 56U and out of the well known Drake Tula cow.

We feel this was the strongest set of herd sire prospects we ever offered for sale. A big "THANK YOU" to everyone who visited the farm, attended the sale and bid on, or purchased, our bulls. Congratulations to the other consignors who brought such a strong offering and helped to make the 2016 Proudy Western Sale such a success. We would be happy to have you visit the farm this summer to look at our cowherd and appraise the prospects they are raising for next year. (We enjoy sharing a cold one, or two, with our guests.)

Sincerely,
Evan & Linda
