We went looking for an outcross bull with bone, a huge foot, calving ease and an appealing phenotype and hit the jackpot with Five-O.  It isn’t often we pay this kind of money for a bull, but bull buyers are demanding cattle with better feet so we went and found one with great feet.  He’s as balanced and eye appealing as you can make one with great muscle expression and a beautiful profile. We look for this calving ease bull to add bone and put a huge, round, even foot under his calves while making sons and daughters we’re proud to put in the front pasture.
