His birth weight 68 pounds. Dam's birth weight 70 pounds, Grand Dam's birth weight 68 pounds. Great Grand Dam's birth weight 69 pounds. CALVING EASE! The low birth weight tradition continues with his Dam's second calf, born 3/13/2011 out of BR Midland weighed just 65 pounds. We've owned this cow family all the way back to the Great Grand Dam. They consistently produce low birth-weight, thick made cattle with moderate frame scores and show-stopping phenotype. A pedigree loaded with Pathfinders that stacks 5 generations of solid A.I. breeding. He stands in the top 3% in the breed for CED (calving ease direct). A real cow-maker, this Sire successfully combines extra muscle, shape, and dimension with an exceptional clean-fronted profile. Cow family is very docile, and displays outstanding feet & legs, and picture perfect udders. Use on your heifers with complete confidence. No surprises, No disappointments.
As a calf he demonstrated early explosive growth to achieve a 1253# yearling weight and then stopped just at the right time to end up as a smaller framed bull. We have several A.I. calves out of him. They are among our fanciest cattle. They are strong topped, and loaded with extra muscling. They calve easy and display exceptional vigor. We collected this bull and have semen for sale.
