Arguably the stoutest, most attractive high $Beef Value bull in the business; it will be hard to find a sire with the same genetic package that offers more style and phenotype. We’ve liked his bull calves and now really like his daughters in our herd!
This record setting high selling bull at Connealy Angus sires stout, wide topped calves with a lot of strength and eye appeal. Cattlemen have been impressed with this bull’s combination of individual phenotype, breed leading growth and carcass EPD’s and maternal strength on his dam’s side.
