Leon

BK 308 Thunderbird 731, “Leon,” will make a great heifer bull. He is out of Anna’s cow, and show heifer, BK Lassie 447, “Daisy.” BK Lassie 447 is our first heifer of the calving season. She is by Connealy Confidence 0100 and is out of B&K Susie 317. Connealy Confidence is out of Connealy Tobin and Becka Gala of Conanga 8281. Confidence is the high-selling bull from the 2011 Connealy sale and with his 13 for CED, 40 $W and nearly 80 $B, he’s one of the most unique bulls available in the Angus breed. His blend of style, calving ease potential, genomically-enhanced carcass numbers and a Thunder X Bextor dam that’s truly a model Angus female make Confidence deserving of heavy sampling. She was born 12/23/14. The kids named her Daisy. Daisy is owned and shown by Anna. SAV Thunderbird 9061, was a featured lot and one of the high selling bulls of the record-setting 2010 Schaff Angus Valley Bull Sale, St. Anthony, SD. Thunderbird took top honors as the #1 calving ease bull of the entire calf crop at Schaff Angus Valley; recording a BW EPD of -0.9 with a 66# active; birth weight and a weaning EPD in the breed’s top 1% and a yearling EPD in the breed’s top 2%. He earned a 205-day weight of 944 lbs for a weaning ratio of 104, as his dam’s first calf. Backed by generations of great females from the Emblynette family established at SAV over 60 years ago. Thunderbird stacks the breed leading genetics of the popular calving ease sire, SAV Final Answer and SAV Bismarck. Thunderbird blends the best in phenotype and pedigree with second-to-none EPDs in an attractive and impressive package with depth, thickness and soundness of structure. He was born 2/6/17 and has an actual BW of 61 lbs. $2,500
