Ascot Hallmark H147

When we saw Hallmark at Beef in Rocky 2015 we knew he was just the bull to inject growth and IMF into our herd, and that his type would leave us with phenomenal females.  We were one of the first studs to recognise him, and will have our first draft of bulls in this years sale.  Hallmark has since gone on to blow them away in the latest Angus Progeny Test, and will go down as a must have pedigree for the future.  Top 1% indexes, quiet temperament, classy lines.

Other bulls who have shaped out herd are Scotch Cap, VPI Lord Patriot and Future Direction. Mistakes?? probably many but New Design 036 taught us that we should not follow fads, but stay true to our breeding directive, and not be afraid to be different.
