Lot 10, $18,000 to Varilek Angus, Geddes.

His EPDs were as follows: 72 pound WW, 124 YW to put him in the top one percent of the breed for both.

This guy looks like a great calving ease prospect and he sold to a good program. The Jilt cow family is the backbone of the Mohnen program. I’m surprised they let one escape but I see why they are bringing those genetics back home.
