Selling 100% possession and 75% semen revenue.
415s worst ones are good, her best ones are great. It is not often in the state of Indiana you have people asking you to please buy your bull. LAH Emperor 413B has been doted on all summer and fall by all that have stopped to look. Price him is the last thing they say before leaving the farm or talking on the telephone. This bull has been held back just for this young and special event. LAH Emperor 413B is going to help the legacy of his amazing mother 415.
LAH Emperor 413B was himself named the Winter Bull Calf Champion of the 2014 NAILE ROV Angus Show. His maternal sister, LAH Empress 433B was Reserve Division 1 at the NAILE SimSolution show. His dam had a piece of two VERY competitive divisions in two different breeds and another sister, LAH Empress 459B, helped draw a crowd in the stalls as all three were proudly displayed with the 415 dam sign hanging above, cow fans took notice of what we have already known.
415 produced in excess of $100,000 of revenue and we finally have some depth to retain some daughters.The final chapter has not yet been written on this elite cow.
LAH Emperor 413B is himself a very impressive animal. His balance of power and look make him a standout sire. His substance, softness, width, are well complimented by a fresh look and a great hair coat, not to mention a disposition that makes this bull a fun one to take on the road.
LAH Emperor 413B is no accident as he is sired by the breed leader BC Lookout 7024 who needs no introduction. But his famous dam traces back to the DF Empress 6079 twice! 6079 was the first two million dollar producer in the Angus breed.
We look forward to finding out who his next owner will be and how this bull can enhance an already great program put one on the map.
