Sale Time in Louisville

The Louisville sale may be 1 week away, but it is time to start thinking about this exciting lot. This time last year dad and I were debating about making a big purchase in Louisville at the Simmental Sale. After a few minutes of bidding we had purchased Elegant Force our Christmas present to ourselves and never looked back!

Elegant Force
We got Elle up into Canada right before Christmas and could not have been happier. She laid down and had an awesome heifer calf- Southern Elle. We will be showing her heifer this fall at Farmfair and Agribition, and I can say that I have never owned something that has been this good! Elle really outdid herself on the first calf!

Southern Elle
We keep Elle open for the year and have flushed her 3 times. The flushes went very well and we will be expecting about 6 calves out of her this winter. Should be some exciting times around the farm.

With the flushes going so well, and her first calf looking as great as she does, we have decided to sell two sets of 3 embryos in the Louisville sale next Monday. The embryos are sired by Power Drive and Joker, two sires that we think will cross really well and that are really proven within the Simmental breed.

The Louisville sale will be broadcasted on To register for a buyer number or more information please contact the EDJE team. You can view the catalog here, or contact DP Sales Management for more information. The embryos will sell as lot 9A & 9B.

We have real confidence in this young donor, and will look to her to lead the next generation of black females at our farm. If you have any questions feel free to contact myself or Rob at 780-514-0785. More information of this female can be found at
