Look here! If you study our program, or even read through this catalog, you will quickly recognize that Miss Double A 468/7 is one of our most proven donors. This female, ECC Polled Rio Queen 640/1 (P), is double bred with 468/7 as both her sire and dam are out of her. The sire to 640/1 is our National Show Class Winner, and now proven herd sire, ECC Polled Comandante 749 (S) who is a full brother to LMC ECC LF Polled Lolo 127/4, who sells as Lot 1. The dam to 640/1 is a first-calving cow that is sired by ECC El Caporal 301, who ranks as the No. 5 All Time Sire for Polled registrations in ABBA. Due to the genetic superiority of 640/1, she ranks in the Top 10% of the breed for Marbling EPD. We got so excited telling you about 640/1 that we left one of the most important things out — she sells bred to ECC Polled Maverick 302/9! Seller guarantees 45 days pregnant, before leaving ECC.
