This week’s “Name that Beef Bull” Quiz Game; Angus bull is a foundation maternal sire with over 36,900 registered Angus progeny and also holds the record for most consecutive years as the #1 Angus bull for registrations from 1996 – 2000. Can you guess the name of this bull? – 29AN1413 N Bar Emulation EXT
- The original curve bender is one of the most influential sires in Angus history. With outstanding, functional phenotype and longevity, EXT left his mark as a foundation maternal sire. Known for his beautifully uddered, productive daughters, his pathfinder genetics are still widely sought after today. EXT was well known for his ideal growth curve, moderate birth weights and reduced mature size. Very few sires in the Angus breed will have the same lasting effects as this sire.
- Originally selected by ABS as a replacement bull, EXT soon far exceeded expectations and quickly surpassed his famed sire (Emulation N Bar 5522 was also an ABS Sire) in popularity and calf reports. Not only did EXT set single year registration records while at ABS but also held the longest running all time total registrations recorded with American Angus Association only to be surpassed in 2010 by New Design 878. EXT died at 13 years of age. To commemorate his prolific life and the impact not only to the Angus breed but entire Beef Industry, EXT is the only beef sire with a headstone at ABS Global.
