FISCHER RED ANGUS DONATES TO THE JUNIOR RED ANGUS ASSOCIATION

Ron and Ester Fischer of Fischer Red Angus in Harlowton, MT, have made a generous donation to the National Junior Red Angus Association (JRA). The Fischers have donated four embryos to be auctioned off at the Mile High Classic Red Angus Auction held in conjunction with the National Western Stock Show & Rodeo in Denver, CO, on January 21, 2008. The embryos are out of Fischer Coppertop 882 (601955) and LMAN King Rob 8621 (335067). The dam is a daughter of the famed Coppertop 591 cow, and has an MPPA of 105.8. The sire is one of the most heavily used and influential sires in the breed with progeny located in herds across the country. The offering is a great chance to select genetics from one of the leading Red Angus herds in the country.

Fischer Red Angus hosts an annual bull sale each spring. This year's sale is their 15th and will be held March 22 at the ranch in Harlowton. A full sib to the donated embryos sold in their 2004 sale as the high selling heifer. The projected EPD's will rank the offspring in the top 10% in Weaning Weight and Total Maternal, the top 2% in Yearling Weight and the top 25% in Milk and Stayability. For more information on the JRA, contact Dawn Bernhard, dawn@redangus.org. For additional details on the Mile High Red Angus Sale, contact Kyle Gilchrist at (641) 9191077.
