ECC Polled Rio Queen 829/3 is a female that combines our four breeding essentials: Performance, Pedigree, Pretty and Polled! The one word that defines the phenotype of this heifer is FANCY. Look at the length, levelness, femininity, bone, muscle and volume that she combines. Do not misjudge 829/3 as just a “pretty face” as she is performance-packed, charting positive for growth, ranking in the Top 1/3 of the breed for Ribeye Area, Top 15% for Milk and Top 10% for Marbling. The eye appeal and performance of 829/3 should not be surprising when you realize that she is sired by ECC Polled Chief 719 (P), one of our top herd sires that results from the cross of LMC Polled Sambo 45/0 and D Bar Miss 768/1, two of the most influential animals in our genetic lines. The dam to 829/3 is a female that we purchased from Underwood Ranch that combines some of the most popular, proven and performance-oriented genetics in the breed, including the show-winning Mr. H Cavalier Manso 700, the $50,000 half-interest bull and sire to a Reserve International Champion, Mr. H Morton Manso, and +SNS Ms. Karu Didor who is the dam to +Lady H Lisa Manso 947/7. She is the TOTAL package!

This is a two-day, online-only sale. The sale will open at 7 AM on Wednesday, Sept. 27 and will close at 7 PM on Thursday, Sept. 28. All standard sales held on the Premier Livestock Auctions (PLA) website are conducted with the horserace-style closing format. This means that at the posted closing time for any given event, that event will enter into a period called extended bidding. Extended bidding periods are five (5) minutes each. Extended bidding will continue until there has been no bidding activity for the duration of the set extended bidding increment. At that time, the event will close and all lots will be declared sold to the highest Bidder. Each animal on which there are two or more bids will be sold to the highest bidder. Prospective buyers MUST create a free account, and register to bid online at PREMIERLIVESTOCKAUCTIONS.COM prior to sale time. For registration assistance, contact Marshall Curl at 956.537.6510.


Every animal in this sale is, to the best of the breeder’s knowledge, free from any disease and are all sound. Open or exposed females will be guaranteed by the seller to be a breeder.

Breeding guarantee is voided if any of the following occur: injury, death, disease, natural disaster, gross negligence or misconduct, heifers not in suitable body condition to breed, or virgin heifers flushed or IVF’d prior to having a natural calf. Should a breeding concern arise, buyer is responsible to report the concern to England Cattle Co. If an animal fails to breed, it may be returned to ECC in good condition. ECC reserves the right to try said animal for six months, and if it proves to be a breeder, return it at the buyer’s expense. If the animal proves to be a non-breeder, an animal of comparable rank or credit toward the purchase of another animal will be offered. No cash refunds will be given.
