A sire stemming from the New Mexico State University program in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Their program has two large research ranches that are operated as a real livestock operation including the production of both sheep and cattle. 3005 pictured above is 8 years old this year and still is working on the Corona Ranch. The program focuses on producing cattle that require minimal inputs. Everyone talks about Feed Efficiency this program is actually proving it on the ground in "Real World" conditions.
We used this bull to moderate some larger framed animals and to help with an outcross bloodline that so many are demanding in today's bull market. If you are wanting to use some foundation Angus genetics look at this bull.
We are set to breed his first daughters in April and look forward to seeing how they do in our herd. One of his daughters from the 2010 calf crop was our highest scanning heifer with a 7.38 IMF score. This means she achieved a Choice Quality grade on no more than 2 pounds per day of grain at 12 months of age! Unbelievable!
If you were to look at his numbers you wouldn't be impressed with any except his $EN Value. This is a comparison to be used between animals and the value simply means the amount of dollars saved in a year's time on inputs on one of his progeny. Over the lifetime of an animal this can mean a lot of money especially in your cow herd. This bull ranks in the top 1% of the breed for this Value.
