With the loss of his sire BRICK, we were very fortunate to have 408Y on the roster. He adds more body mass end to end to his progent than any bull we have ever turned out or AI’ed to. His progeny are incredibly long, hairy and structurally sound, all packed into a very moderate frame. His mama went to town after 10 years of production and still had a sound, level, small teated udder. His first daughters are wide bodied, level uddered - small teated producing cows. We hear people talk about not enough middle in cattle, well 408 is the REAL DEAL. 9 sons on offer.
