Forgot to put BW’s. BW’s have been in the high 70’s and middle 80’s.
He does seem to add some belly white.

The steers display more performance than any calving ease bull I have ever used. Very good looking animals that have some meat in them. They look like they will yield better than average. I have a nice group of S Summit daughters in the keeper pen and am considering breeding them to Niagara to make more 3/4 sibs to the ones I have already. I think his calving ease direct is a little higher than his epd shows.


I apprecite all the responses. Sounds like he might be a winner.
WB or DRR- have either of to pelvic measured or track scored yet? Or are they still to young?
Select sires has him on special right now 30-50-100 straw discounts. I wish I had someone close who could split an order with me. I don’t really need 100 straws of him.

Mine are too young still. Sorry. Man I wish I could get in on that deal as well. I definitely am going to use him another year.
