ECC Polled Vogue 492/0 is a female that has been shown successfully over the past two years, regularly picking up class and division wins in major competitions. As you might expect based on her show ring placings, Vogue is superior in her confirmation being heavy-structured, huge-bodied, level-topped, square-hipped and heavy-muscled. It should not be surprising that Vogue has achieved great success as she is a full sister to the 2016 Reserve International Champion +LMC Polled Passion 55/4, many of our herd influencers and top sellers, as well as 23 other full siblings who have an average sale value of $18,000. The dam to Vogue is LMC +S Polled Madonna who we sold a 1/3 interest in our first sale for $35,000 to Sandglass Ranch. The sire to Vogue is +LMC LF Polled Ambassador 700/7, one of the foundation Polled sires in the breed who joined a short list of Polled bulls to reach the ABBA Register of Renown. As a yearling Vogue was the pick of our herd by Ray Vella of Australia who now owns an exclusive for that country. In short, we think this is one of the best females we have ever raised that is backed by one of the most proven pedigrees in the world. We are truly offering you our best!

The procedure is to be done at a mutually agreed upon location. England Cattle Co. will deliver the cow to the facility with all other expenses being covered by the buyer.
