City, Mo. — KP Real Deal 446 walked out of Freedom Hall a winner at the 2006 North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) National Hereford Show on Nov. 16 in Louisville, Ky. The 2-year-old bull, sired by BP Kahlua 38M, is co-owned by Daugherty Cattle Co., Clovis, N.M., and Kyle Perez, Nara Visa, N.M., and has expected progeny differences (EPDs) of birth weight (BW) 6.3; weaning weight (WW) 54; yearling weight (YW) 85; milk (MM) 20; and milk and growth (M&G) 47. Tommy Coley, Birmingham, Iowa, evaluated the Hereford lineup and sorted through 212 heifers and bulls.
Cottonwood Springs Farm, Cedar, Mich., exhibited the champion yearling bull that went on to be named reserve grand champion of the show. CSF 122L Creek 203R ET is sired by Remitall Online 122L and has EPDs of BW 2.7; WW 51; YW 86; MM 17; and M&G 43.
In 2005 HAWK KO Enuff Faith 0506 won her division at the NAILE; this year she claimed the grand champion female title.
