              JLS RANGER 5099           |JDJ MS SITTINGB Y623  of BHD Zeus X3041, and asked him to tell me about his bull. Brett told me that they also noticed a fast

                                                               we all know that traits are hereditary in cattle. You can call it growth, gain ability, feedlot performance,
                                                               but it’s all the same – converting feed to red meat. Some cattle do it a lot faster than others. I believe
