Hello, It is with some sadness and mixed emotions I announce the impending closure of Matters Speckle Park. I have made the decision to leave the cattle business all together and have decided to sell my herd of registered Speckle Park. Sharon, my daughter and her partner, Bradley, have decided to continue on with a small quality herd of registered Speckle Park under the new farm name of BAR 4M Ranch. She has 10 cows of her own already and she is purchasing 4 more from me. That leaves me now with 14 registered females to sell in this private treaty bidding sale, with 7 embryos, 2 herdsire bulls, and 100 semen straws from Codiak Layne GNK 56A. The cows I am selling are all good young cows (well except for one cow who is older) who are good producers. they are a very quiet herd and some even allow back scratches. Our two bulls in the sale have been excellent sires proving both as easy calving bulls who stamp their calves with style. We have some really neat embryos in our tank at Sundown Transplants as well and we are offering up all of our reproduction technology program which includes embryos and semen. These animals will fit into your program well and if you are just starting out in the breed, they are the type that you can build a herd around. If you want to bid in October just call, text or email us your bid. MAKE IT YOUR BEST BID RIGHT OFF! If you are outbid we will notify the person that had the next closest bid. This is a silent bid sale, we are the only ones who know what bids have been made by whom and for what dollar amount. On Oct 16th the winning bidders will be notified and arrangements for payment, pickup and transfer of papers will be made. Embryos and semen will be transferred to winning bidders by us contacting Sundown Transplants or Alta Genetics and giving the winning bidder name and contact info to them with the permission to release documentation. It is the BUYERS responsibility to make shipping arrangements and to pay for costs associated with this. All cattle must be picked up at SPOTLIGHT SPECKLE PARK (for females) and MATTERS SPECKLE PARK (for males) by October 21, 2018. Cows will be weaned by October 15, 2018. All females have been exposed to CODIAK DEALER GNK 8D for mid Feb 2019 start date for calving. We are in discussion with vets in the area to provide vet certificate of pregnancy by ultrasound done on the females, will post if we are able to get this done prior to sale. DONT MISS OUT ON SOME GREAT COWS and BULLS! SET your cell/clock to remind you about the end date of the sale so you dont loose out on your bid! If you contact us about your bid we will let you know if its still the winning bid! Looking forward to providing you with some great bloodlines and good producers.
