Lot 9- La Forester of Volga 2208

View on American Angus Association

This guy is Mr. Libido. He would probably weigh 200# more if he would stop standing in the corner, bugling to the heifers day and night. Nice rear end, and testicles. 74# heifer bull. He has just a scoosh bit more frame, probably gets that from his Pathfinder mom. 778 has a CI of 5@369 with a great, tight udder.

Lot 11- Macon of Volga 2207

This guy is going to be a cow bull. “Dad, why’d you keep an 88# bull?” He replied saying, “This bull was too awesome to cut. Columbus, Alap, Lodge, and Quon. 10090, 9706, 9141, and 7107. A group of the best great-grandparents you could ever put together. I had to keep him.” He’s very deep gutted and overall very correct.

Lot 14- Murdo of Volga 2224

View on American Angus Association

Margo of Volga’s full brother. 224 was 0507’s 15th and last natural calf.

Her CI was 15@380, WWR of 15@108 and YWR 12@106. 224 isn’t the biggest calf in the pen, but his pedigree is already proven through Margo. He’s your next great angus bull, very smooth and correct.
