Lot 7 – GIBBS 7264E JILL Y509
Jill is a homozygous black and homozygous polled Purebred Simmental heifer that will be selling as Lot 7. She was born September 14, 2017 and is sired by the ABS sire, GIBBS 3009A ELEMENT. Due to an injury while breeding cows last year, ELEMENT semen is in very short supply and there will be no more, so this is a great opportunity to own his genetics. Jill’s dam was part of the large group of females we purchased from Sunshine Farms when they liquidated and she offers a very interesting outcross Simmental pedigree.
Genomic enhanced EPD’s should be posted on the ASA website prior to sale time, so check the link below for updated EPD’s on Jill.

Lot 8 – GIBBS 7296E JACKIE 0867X
Does the pedigree of Jackie look familiar? Yep, she is a 3/4 blood sister to the heifer we consigned last year. This STATEMENT daughter is absolutely not giving up a thing to her older sister that was the high selling animal in the sale last year. Jackie is a homozygous black and homozygous polled SimAngus heifer that was born September 16, 2017. Her DUAL FOCUS dam is stacked with “cow maker” sires and offers a very outcross and useable pedigree. Jackie is an absolute tank of a female and sure looks like the “cow maker’ kind.
Genomic enhanced EPD’s should be posted on the ASA website prior to sale time, so check the link below for updated EPD’s on Jackie.

THE VALUE OF CARCASS DATA...

The end product of our industry is the carcass and the value within a pen of steers all coming from one contemporary group of calves can be drastically different, many times varying in end value by 20% - 25%. Carcass value can be greatly improved by using genetics with high carcass value, yet our industry still collects a very small amount of carcass data that can be used in a genetic evaluation. Gibbs Farms has collected carcass data that has gone into the IGS Multi-Breed Genetic Evaluation for many years, but has in recent years ramped up our efforts.
