MCATL Pilgrim 520-495
Sire: Connealy Final Product
Dam: M A Barbara 495
He is a massive, heavy muscled bull with a large ribeye (18.6 Adj REA) and better carcass EPD's than most Final Product sons. Used on both heifers and cows.
First calves came small with lots of vigo and he is proving himself to be a calving ease sire. His progeny have strong, level tops and very consistent in their pattern.
He will add depth of rib and muscle while still maintaining excellent phenotype.
Green Valley's selection as the $18,000 lead off bull of the 2011 Musgrave Angus Bull Sale. They purchased him for his powerful performance and phenotype and his very deep cow family. His $17,000 maternal brother, MCATL Triple Stack 889-495, is a featured sire at Hoover Angus, IA. He is a massive, heavy muscled bull with a large ribeye (18.6 Adj REA) and better carcass EPD's than most Final Product sons. Used on both heifers and cows, his calves have come small with consistent, attractive phenotype with lots of vigor. We expect his birth EPD to diminish as progeny get reported. We used him both naturally and through AI.
