The top-selling spring yearling bull of the Angus breed in the spring of 2007, Forward has emerged as proven sire of top-selling progeny with his sons headlined by the SydGen Liberty GA, $48,000 top selling half interest bull of the 2009 SydGen sale where 23 sons of Forward sold for an average of $5,974 with seven daughters led by the $24,000 top-selling open heifer selling for an average of $7,086.
As his dam's first calf, this son of a now-deceased growth leader combined a 67 pound birth weight with an adjusted 205-day weight of 873 lbs. and an adjusted 365-day weight of 1,495 lbs. and his awesome performance combined with a nearly ideal phenotype made him the most talked about the sought-after spring yearling of 2007.
The dam of Forward was the top-selling donor of the 2009 sale at Three Trees Ranch when she sold for $103,000 to the partnership of Deer Valley Farm and Sandpoint Cattle Company and a heifer pregnancy from her was the top-selling heifer pregnancy of the 2010 sale of Sandpoint.
As the data accumulates, Forward continues to affirm the reason that he was the top-selling yearling bull of the Angus breed in the spring of 2007.
