In the late summer of 2019, ORIgen and his owners offered a sad farewell to the bull that graced the cover of the 2019 ORIgen Sire Directory, and this $300,000 valued sire will be remembered through his many descendants working throughout the industry.
A phenotypic favorite of cowmen that visited ORIgen during his residence there with medium frame size, great depth of body, visually appealing thickness, a robust ribcage and muscle down his top that carries depth down into his lower quarter, Aviator was 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.
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 and 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.
A son of Aviator sold for $125,000 in the 2017 National Finals Angus Sale in Vegas, and another sold for $53,000 in 2018.
