Notes on Herd Sires Key
Mr Ishee Converter 816 RED-ND                           Top 1 %
 - Trait Leader for CE and BW  Converter works as a calving ease sire and if you keep replacement females.  The maternal EPDs show that his daughters will be easy calving with good milk and the ability to stay in the herd.  His progeny will also be some of the top carcass cattle in the Simmental breed.  His marbling EPD is one of the best we have seen.  To top it all off, his dollar indexes show that this bull has been a profitable bull for our program and could be for yours.  A select number of sons will be available at our 2015 Bull Sale and semen is available at Universal Semen Sales in Great Falls, MT.
