We are glad to be selling this outstanding heifer with our good friends and partners, the Flores Family of 4F Cattle Co. ECC 4F Polled Sophia 651/1(P) is not only an eye appealing and well-made female, but also comes backed by some of our most proven genetics. The sire to Sophia is ECC El Caporal 301 who we showed with great success and has been one of the most influential sires in our program, and the breed, with close to 150 registrations. The dam to this dark-pigmented and complete-made female is ECC 4F Rio Queen 741 who is a full sister to ECC 4F Polled Dora 359/9 (P). Dora is currently being shown with great success, most recently taking home Reserve Senior Champion Female at the 2022 San Antonio Open Brahman Show. Sophia’s dam is sired by Polled Pathfinder who is one of the most proven sires in the breed, globally, and is out of +S Donna 247 who was one of the foundation cows for us and 4F, along with La Muñeca. Sophia has been one of the favorites of everyone who came to the ranch, and we know you will like her too!
