TFS Black Ice 4685B:
Black Ice is a true spread bull with the unique balance of calving ease, growth and profit that is not easy to equal! When you search the ASA database for bulls with his levels of Calving Ease EPD, Birth Weight EPD that still beat +139 for Yearling Weight EPD you will only find 5 of them and of that rare group he provides the most combined carcass value improvement. Lots of producers today are searching for a bull that delivers extra growth and power, Black Ice is that kind of bull. As the co-top seller of the 2015 Trinity Farms bull sale, he dominated the competition for growth, phenotype and potential to impact the breed. After DNA information was included, his EPD profile includes 10 traits with top 10% rankings or better including top 1% values for Weaning, Yearling and $TI EPDs. The maternal potential however is there to boot. His young Mytty In Focus dam has already put up average ratios of 107, 104 and 107 for birth weight, weaning and yearling performance and the average IMF and REA ratios are 126 and 101 respectively. Her first bull calf too was chosen by Simmental breeder Brad Leen at Premier Beef in Thrall TX to move their program forward. Use Black Ice to improve value across the board and make a new generation of performance improving, sound powerful sons and daughters.
