Prior to purchasing 44Z, we looked at his sire; he was moderate with perfect feet at 13 years of age. Longevity is a dominant trait in these genetics as 44Z will be turning ten years old this February and is showing no sign of slowing down. His bull calves are moderate-framed and easy-keeping, but what he really is known for are his females. They have proven to be exactly what maternal traits we are striving for. They are easy-doing, wedge shaped females with great udders, in a moderate framed package.
