Mr Bow K 304A – Purebred Gelbvieh
We are very excited about 304A’s progeny! His second calf crop – both bulls and heifers are meeting and exceeding our expectations. With added thickness, this homozygous black and hetrozygous polled herdsire has a powerful Genomic Enhanced EPD package! Out of a perfect uddered dam that Bow K Ranch raised, whose calves come small and wean above average. She is a Dam of Merit. Many of his daughters we are keeping for replacements in our herd.
