A phenotypic favorite of cowmen that visited ORIgen during his residence there with medium frame size, great depth of body and visually appealing thickness with a robust ribcage and muscle down his top that carries depth down into his lower quarter - this bull is full of meat.
A “sleep-all-night” calving ease bull with high accuracy double-digit Calving Ease Direct and minus Birth Weight EPDs, great feet and docile disposition, Aviator offers a unique combination of balancing calving ease, muscle and phenotype and there are 2,347 progeny of Aviator in the AHIR system with an average birth ratio of 98.
Since coming to ORIgen from Canada in March 2016, Aviator has been a leader in direct ORIgen semen sales, acclaimed as a bull whose progeny should withstand and prosper in harsh environmental conditions, demonstrating his widespread appeal to all segments of the cattle industry.
Aviator is homozygous TT for the Leptin gene that is believed to improve feed efficiency, appetite, marbling and maternal strength.
