Freddy Conquers the Competition for Eye Muscle Area
Charolais leader, Vexour Freddy, has topped the table as the number one bull for eye muscle area in the UK.
The figures published by ABRI Breedplan confirm Vexour Freddy’s unique combination of conformation and growth with +9.4 eye muscle area and +4.3 for retail beef yield (making him the number two in the breed for this trait).
Freddy’s supreme success in eye muscle area and retail beef yield make him an ideal bull to produce suckler bred calves for the beef supply chain. He has a good level of fat cover meaning excellent finishing and carcase weights can be achieved at a young age.
Freddy’s owner, Simon
Frost, has recently
weaned a batch of Freddy cross bred
calves, he said:
“I am extremely pleased with the conformation and growth rates. My top heifer calf at weaning had a daily live weight gain of 1.71 kgs and my best bull calf came in at 1.89 kgs; both with birth weight removed. Freddy is consistently producing top quality heifers and certainly proving himself as a modern Charolais for the modern beef producer. I can recommend this bull without reservation.”
Beef Sire Analyst, Boomer Birch said:
“We always believed Freddy would perform well and with a great pedigree plus exceptional figures behind him, it seems that he will continue to rise above the competition. His first progeny are displaying outstanding loins with quality, cleanness and definition. With 37 pedigree progeny registered to date, his figures have shot up and we are more than impressed. It is clear to see that Freddy will not only breed top terminal index bulls but he will be at the forefront in producing prime cattle.”
