GW LUCKY BOY 252UPrevious Page
Looking for a heifer bull to produce purebred offspring out of purebred heifers, Lucky Boy is a proven easy calving choice. We consider our high value group of 3/4 Simmental bulls to be comparable to purebreds from a percentile rank standpoint, because they can be used on purebred cows to make purebred offspring.
252U ranks in the top 1% of Calving Ease, 15% for Yearling Growth, top 4% for MWW, top 1% for Marbling and top 10% for REA EPD. Whether you compare him to purebreds or hybrid averages, he ranks in the top 1% for API and TI dollar profit indexes.
Lucky Boy is a non-spotting son of the growth and carcass sire GW Lucky Man 644N that sires substantially less birth weight with the same powerful growth performance and carcass value.
His progeny are deeper sided, easier fleshing and more structurally correct behind than those sired by his popular sire and are more conservative for mature size.
Ratioing 128 and 116 respectively for weaning and yearling weights among the Gateway offering of 2009, he was the lot #1 and top selling bull in the GW sale. Lucky Boy does just about everything right including producing some of the nicest uddered, fleshiest young daughters you will find.
