He is incredibly docile and growthy with impressive bone and weighed 836 kgs. He stands on very good feet and is structurally correct. Deep, wide and with a very strong backline, his EMA for such a young bull was an impressive 142 EMA. A beautiful supple skin and tropical coat with plenty of skin while still retaining the perfect underline, so difficult to find.

He ticked every box and we are absolutely thrilled to have been able to secure this incredible young sire.
