R5XK205  Lot 3

21 month old horned son of DC Advance F052. K205 is another younger bull that we put at the front of the sale due to his outstanding carcase. 10 years ago, we believed that to increase marbling in cattle we would nearly always lose yield. However we now have cattle like K205 who are at the top of the breed for both muscle and marbling, and they can also have sound structure, good skins and plenty of growth. Advance X Magnum X Vicar, 3 generations of high yielding genetics.
