This $71,000 top-selling bull of the Fall 2020 Wilks Ranch sale in Texas was renamed to commemorate his 8.72% adjusted %IMF estimate that earned him a ratio of 181 and an elite Marbling score EPD that is ideal for siring progeny and descendants that will fit the specifications of the Linz Heritage Angus USDA Prime program that is one of the most respected sources of the most valuable and and desired steaks in the world.
The now-deceased sire of this marbling sensation is a past ORIgen featured growth sire whose ever growing list of high value progeny include the $85,000 two-thirds interest top-selling bull of the 2020 National Western Angus Bull Sale with daughters sold for $115,000 for half interest, $75,000, $70,000, $34,000, $27,500 for half interest in 2020 with others sold for $95,000, $28,000 and $24,000 in the 2019 Wilks sale.
The $52,000 donor dam of this sensation has a full sister to him working for Ney Cattle Company of Hoisington, Kansas and she is a cornerstone donor of the Wilks program.
