Dam: ECC MRS AVA 526 (P)
Registration Number: ABBA # 1048980
ECC Polled Rio Queen 688/2 (P) is one of our favorites due to her TOTALITY! This female is the combination heifer in the sale as she is ample in her bone structure and depth of side, level on her topline, and heavy muscled. The sire to 688/2 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 170 registrations. She is out of ECC Mrs. Ava 526 (P) who is by the proven and popular herd sire, LMC Polled Madison 133/0 (P), and out of a cow bred by Mrs. Ava Barker. As you might expect with +Cross Fire and Madison in the pedigree, 688/2 is extreme in her Marbling EPD, ranking in the Top 10% of the breed. There is a variety of cattle in this sale to meet everyone’s needs but for us we think there is a lot of all-around value in this female.
