Earl Marshall 103 Sellabration Angus Sale 12/4/16

Don't miss out on this historic annual event that will take place on Sunday Dec. 4th, 2016! 86 head of top end high quality Angus sell in this sale. Once again, we are one of the major consigners and we feel it is the best consignment of cattle we have ever offered in this sale. Below is a brief overview of the KM Cattle offering in the 2016 Earl Marshall Sale:
Lot 1: KM Sunny 5027
Sunny 5027 may be the best bull we have ever sold when you figure in his phenotype, EPD’s, and genomics. His pathfinder donor dam, KM Queen May 818, that is one of the best cows we have ever raised. Not many cows can put the depth, softness, and base width into their progeny that she does. It is almost unbelievable how much she puts into them and how consistent it is. She will do that, no matter what the mating is. She records 5 BW@97; 5 NR@112; 3 YW@102. While in the Riley Brothers herd, she had a NR of 120 on 3 calves, with an annual flush performed prior to breed back.
He is a beast in regards to base width, muscle, and depth and length of body. His flush brother, KM Sun Daze 5028 was the top selling bull in our 2016 Bull Sale selling for $10,000. He is a maternal brother to KM Obligation 259, who was our top selling bull in our 2013 Top Cut Bull Sale, selling to Mill Coulee Angus in Wisconsin and entering the ORIgen bullstud. He has maternal siblings in Montana (Sioux Pass Angus Ranch, Green Mountain Angus Ranch), Wisconsin (Mill Coulee Angus), Minnesota, and Iowa. He had a WW ratio of 102 and a YW ratio of 103 with a Scrotal Circumference of 37 cm. He ranks in the top 1% of the breed for RADG, $B; Top 3% for YW, CW; Top 4% for WW; Top 10% for CEM, Fat, $W; Top 15% for Doc, Marbling; Top 20% for RE; and Top 25% for CED. Only Sunrise son in the breed that ranks in the top 5% for YW(he is top 3%), while having a big scrotal EPD of +.75 or higher (his EPD= +1.03), and on top of that, his $B ranks in the top 1%.


Lot 2: KM Complete Princess 046
This full sister to ABS Feature, KM Broken Bow 002, is the female version of her full brother. Deep, heavy muscled, long bodied, excellent footed, and the type of female that merits being a donor cow in any program across the country. Like Broken Bow does so well, she carries that muscle deep down into her lower quarter. We have never let go of a female of this caliber. Broken Bow finished the spring of 2016 as one of ABS Global’s top sellers and is one of the most popular bulls in Australia, with foot quality, muscle, fleshing ability, feed efficiency (DMI+RADG) and daughters being a large reason for that. She has been an excellent producer as a cow and donor. Another full brother sold to 2J Angus of Ogden, IA. She records 5 BW@95; 5 WW@107; 3 YW@103; and had a 365 day calving interval prior to flushing this spring. Expecting ET progeny by 3 different sires. Take note of her individual performance ratio’s- BW: 99; WW: 100; YW: 105; Feed Test: 114; Scan Wt: 985 lb, ratio 104; Pct IMF: 8.96, ratio 153; RE: 13.4, ratio 124.
