SD Powder Horn X803 was the lead off, $9,000 selection by Pete Widener of Sheridan, WY in our 2012 Production Sale. Built with tremendous length, depth and rib shape. He shares the same donor dam as RHR Nitro, Bar S Blackcap 3153, she offers the unique EPD profile of a low birth weight at -.4 and a strong RE at +.87. She continues to produce herd sires! Coupled with the ABS giant, Sitz New Design 458N (Bull Durham), who adds carcass, thickness, length and volume. He produces very strong tops and big rear quarters.
X803's individual performance reflects the most true genetic outcome. This bull was weaned in April of 2011, where he was roughed out on a rocky hillside with his contemporary group of 7 bulls. There was no creep feed and no supplemental feed given - they had to do it on their own. When the yearling bulls came home, he was put in the feedlot where he had an unequaled 4.25 ADG - rationing 114! Don't let his slow start fool you - he has performance when it counts, just look at the Pfizer data.
Powder Horn will see extensive use in our herd in the spring of 2012. Look for his progeny to come!
