Lot 1: KM Cash 319 (17608420)-
Maternal brother to ABS feature KM Broken Bow 002 who is a recent graduate of the Angus Sire Alliance where he now ranks 5th in Total Profit Index, top 15% for feed intake and in the top 15% Maternal Index. Another maternal brother, KM Complete Beef 007 sold to 2J Angus. Lot 1 is an identical twin brother (as a result of a frozen split embryo) to KM Cashier 318, whom we sold to Wagonhammer Angus Ranch. Keep in mind this set of twins were not creep fed nor supplemented in anyway; therefore weaned off light and sacrificed growth. However, post weaning performance and development was excellent and DNA 50K profile is superb; as well as their phenotype, which is well muscled, sound, and attractive. His EPD’s are unique and intriguing ranking him in the top 1% for YW, $W, $F; top 2% for WW; top 3% for CED; top 4% for BW, RADG, YH; top 10% for SC, CW; and top 20% for $B. His pathfinder dam, 0P12, records 7 BW@99, 7 WW@108, 6 YW@103, 22 IMF@103, 22 RE@ 101, 22 Fat@98. Selling half interest and full possession.

An outstanding stylish broody bred heifer by Connealy Impression. Her dam was our pick of the bred heifers at the Flag Ranch Dispersal sale in Nov. 2011 by phenotype and performance.  I expect her to be a chip of the old block from a powerful cow family, with lots of maternal power as Connealy Impression ranks in the top 2% maternal index of the Angus Sire Alliance. A.I. to KM Broken Bow 002 on 4/28/14. Pasture exposed to KM Cash 319 from 5-4-14 to 6-17-14 .  Vet est. due Early March to sale feature Lot 1, KM Cash 319.

Kyle purchased her as an open show heifer and she has been a money maker from the start. In 5 calvings, she has produced 8 calves. She has raised all of them without supplementation, they wean off as some of the heaviest in the given calf crop and she breeds right back every year. No need for embryo transfer on this Lady as she has done it on her own.  A tough one to let go of but we have 4 outstanding daughters retained in the herd by KM Broken Bow and Barstow Cash. One daughter sold to J&R Farms, Denison, IA in last year’s sale. She records 2 BW@98, 2 WW@102, 2 YW@100, 2 IMF@118, and 2 RE@100. A.I. bred on 4-17-14 to KM Broken Bow 002.
