Sitz BowTie 11956
“BowTie” continues to perform beyond our expectations. For the 2019-2020 test, we had 6 bulls on Performance and Feed Efficiency Test with Werner‘s Feed Efficiency Center (IA) and the Iowa Cattlemen‘s Assoc.
“BowTie” is passing along his exceptional marbling (top 4%); plus he has passed along more growth, length, and thickness than we had expected; maternally his first yearling daughters just finished being AI‘d and they are a beautiful set of young females.
A “BowTIe” son, 19461839, finished the test of 106 bulls as the #1 marbling bull (6.19% act %IMF/ 5.99% adj %IMF!) with an ADG of 4.98 #/da vs test ave. of 4.31 (11% advantage!) and was the #9 bull for Feed Efficiency 5.32 adj F:G vs 6.12 test ave. (13% gain in feed conversion)…to top it off his DNA test shows him to be in the top 34% for Tenderness gene. Bull came off test 1287#.
At an early stage, “BowTie” is doing it all for us … CALVING EASE—GROWTH—CARCASS—FEED EFFICIENCY—TENDERNESS plus we think his replacement daughters will represent themselves well in our herd.
