Mr Bow K 304A – Purebred Gelbvieh
We are very excited about 304A’s potential! His first calves have been weaned and are meeting and exceeding our expectations. With added thickness, this homozygous black and polled herdsire has a powerful Genomic Enhanced EPD package! Out of a perfect uddered dam whose calves come small and wean above average.
Mr Bow K 220Z – 75% Gelbvieh Balancer
Excellent calving ease and growth in this black, polled, thick herdsire. A 75% Gelbvieh Balancer that is easy going and an Igenity score that indicates a 9 for tenderness. His first sons were well received in last year’s “Pot of Gold” Bull Sale.
The bull pictured is a son of 220Z.
