ORIgen Angus Genetics at the 2018 National Western Stock Show

A great week for ORIgen genetics began at the Bases Loaded Angus Sale at Coors Field where a 12% semen interest of the young ORIgen sire Stevenson Big League sold for $90,000. The top three valued females of that sale were daughters of ORIgen sires with half interest of the Basin Payweight 1682 daughter featured as Lot 7B selling for $52,500, half interest of the 3F Epic daughter featured as Lot 4 selling for $40,000 and half interest of the EXAR Stud daughter featured as Lot 18A selling for $25,000.

The next day in the National Western Angus Bull Sale, the Grand Champion Bull was a son of the ORIgen sire BUBS Southern Charm and the sale that evening began with the $215,000 sale of a maternal sister to the ORIgen sires V A R Foreman, V A R Generation and V A R Rubicon as the heifer donated by the ORIgen owner Vintage Angus Ranch to the Angus Foundation. A pregnancy by the ORIgen Roll of Victory Sire EXAR Classen topped that division of donations to the Angus Foundation at $19,000. For the second consecutive year, the top-selling bull of this sale will join the ORIgen marketing system. In the sale, nine sons of ORIgen sires, which represented nearly one fourth of the sale offering, sold for an average price of $12,278 to surpass the overall sale average by more than $5,000.

In the Roll of Victory Bull Show, the Grand Champion was a son of the ORIgen Roll of Victory sire EXAR Classen and the $51,000 half interest top-selling individual of the 2018 Denim and Diamonds Sale was a son of the now-deceased ORIgen sire RB Active Duty 010.
In the National Western Foundation Female Sale, a 10% semen interest of the popular ORIgen sire Aviator sold for $30,000 with choice of three full sisters to him selling for $11,000. Top-selling full interest female of the sale was Lot 5, a $40,000 daughter of the ORIgen sire Basin Payweight 1682. The third high selling half interest female sold as Lot 38 for $16,500 was another daughter of 1682 and the second, third and fourth high selling heifer pregnancies of the event at $16,000, $15,000 and $14,000 were pregnancies by the ORIgen sires Basin Payweight 1682, EXAR Monumental and FF Rito Righteous.

On Saturday, the pen and carload show of Angus bulls was a showcase of ORIgen genetics. The Grand Champion Carload of Angus Bulls bred and shown by the ORIgen owner Express Ranches featured 10 sons of ORIgen sires with a son of Epic leading the load that included two more Epic sons, five EXAR Stud sons, a son of EXAR Resistol and a very popular son of EXAR Hi-Tech. The winning load had an average CED of 10 with an average Birth Weight EPD of .6 and they had an average show weight of 1,458 pounds for an average WDA of 3.90 along with exceptional growth EPD values and bio-economic indexes.

After several hours of intense competition among nearly 40 pens of three bulls, the Grand Champion Pen of Three Angus Bulls was one of the three first prize pens bred and exhibited by Express Ranches. This Grand Champion Pen of Three herd sire prospects included two sons of the ORIgen superstar Epic and one by the high marbling young ORIgen sire EXAR Stud. With an average show weight of 1,332 pounds for an average WDA of 3.79, these three truly unique future breeding pieces had a phenomenal average CED of 12 and an average Birth Weight EPD of -.2 in combination with an average Weaning Weight EPD of 68 and an average Yearling Weight EPD of 125. Expect to see several of these exciting young herd sire prospects in the upcoming spring sale reports!

The Reserve Late Calf Champion Pen of Three Bulls bred and exhibited by Bobcat Angus included three sons of the ORIgen sires Basin Payweight 1682, HF Powder Keg and Musgrave Big Sky. Express Ranches also exhibited a first prize pen of three sons of the record-setting ORIgen sire HA Cowboy Up. Frey Angus Ranch showed a first prize pen of three sons of the ORIgen sire Freys Appearance, a past lead bull of a Grand Champion Pen of Three Bulls for them. Pollard Farms powerful and popular pen that stood second in class to the Grand Champion Pen included sons of the ORIgen sires V A R Generation and Basin Payweight 1682.

Other ORIgen news at the 2018 National Western included the private treaty sale of an interest in the increasingly popular ORIgen sire BUBS Southern Charm to Sitz Angus Ranch along with the addition of several promising young sires to the ORIgen marketing system. Among those new additions is DPL Boundary T72, a son of Broken Bow selected by Hinman Angus from the record-setting Dal Porto and Ranch Casino sale in California with a top 1% $Weaned calf value index, a minus Birth Weight EPD and a double-digit Calving Ease Direct EPD along with his top 10% Marbling score EPD.
