Justintime, Not trying to be confrontational here but may I ask if you are working for hill haven and representing them for compensation?
I think it's important to be transparent and it is a fair question based on your unbridled recommendation of their cattle. Thank you.

No I am not working for Hill Haven. I will be attending their sale, and will be representing the Canadian Shorthorn Report, as I am the Editor. My main job in life is my farm, and I also enjoy producing the breed magazine in Canada. In my honest opinion, I was very impressed with the sale offering. They are an excellent set and they are not just selling off the ones they don't want to keep themselves.
I will be listed in the sale catalog as a representative, but that is only so anyone who cannot attend the sale, can contact me and I will give them my honest appraisal. Nothing more or less. I have no desire to make part of my living as a sale consultant or representative but I do enjoy seeing other herds and visiting with other breeders.
I travel to many sales throughout Canada and the US but I do not work for anyone but myself. Travelling to see other breeder's cattle and to their sales is the best way I know to see what is happening in the breed.

Meatpacker semen is available in the US and has been for several months. Contact Adam Donnelly, in Wisconsin or Bollum Family Shorthorns in Minnesota and they can give you more information.

I am looking forward to having quite a few Meat Packer calves in 2016. There are some females bred to Meatpacker in the Hill Haven sale and I think there is some embryo lots as well.

You may not be trying to be confrontational, but you are sure coming off that way. I think Hill Haven has some outstanding cattle and they are some outstanding people.

Doc, I sincerely respect your view and your loyalty to a fellow breeder but I don't think it was unfair to ask if the photos have been electronically cropped or altered. It's becoming a worrisome trend I think.  And Justintime is obviously a very honest man and was classy to tolerate my direct question. It wasn't meant to disrespect him and he wasn't the least bit defensive either.  I don't think it's inappropriate to ask if someone has a financial stake or interest when they openly promote auction sales in a public forum. Justintime isn't going to say the cattle look good if they don't.

I was told that one lot of Meatpacker went for $400 per straw, and the other for $500

That is correct Justin. I had 3 people who gave me bids of $250 to $300 per straw and I hardly got a sniff in the bidding. I will be offering Meat Packer embryos in our Horseshoe Creek " Frozen in Time" online embryo and flush sale on January 28th-29th, 2016 at www.edjeauctions.com. I am also going to have a bunch of Meat Packer calves here next spring. Hopefully 15-20. I will have a better idea once we pregnancy test. If Meat Packer breeds half as good as he looks himself, I think he may be the real deal. If you haven't seen him, check out a video of him on Youtube. Just type in his name Kamilaroi Meat Packer and it should show up. I doubt if he will sire those hairy furball show heifers, but I think he should sire some real world beef cattle.
