Sire EXAR Upshot 0562B
Dam BoBo Blackbird 0020

  • She was the $25,000 highlight of the 2012 Angus Night on the Mountain.
  • Maternal sister sold for $25,000 at the same offering.
  • A flush sister sold for $100,000 at the 2011 BoBo Angus Sale, selling to a partnership of Deer Valley Farm and Express Ranch.
  • Her dam, Blackbird 0020, blends the REA leader Summitcrest Complete with the $54,000 now-deceased donor Blackbird 4058.
  • Maternal sisters to the dam include: the $56,000-valued, half-interest selection of Wellington Angus, who went on to produce Blackbird 9072, the $34,000 valued half interest selection of Malones Supreme Angus in the 2010 BoBo Sale, and Blackbird 9090, the $13,000 selection of Hillhouse Angus in that same offering.
  • Her sire, EXAR Upshot has transitioned from a crowd favorite at the 2011 National Western to a preferred proven sire.
  • Her sire, EXAR Upshot, is arguably the stoutest, most attractive high beef value bull in the business. few bulls have ever sired the Denver Champion Carload and Pen of Three bulls in the same year – find another that’s done it in his very first calf crop!
  • She is big-hipped, deep, and long, she brings with her many breed leading traits.

Of over 300,000 active registered Angus dams in the breed, she ranks in the following EPD’s.

Top 30% Weaning Weight EPD (WW), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit weaning growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires.

Top 25% Yearling Weight EPD (YW), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit yearling growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires.

Top 10% Heifer Pregnancy (HP), is a selection tool to increase the probability or chance of a sire’s daughters becoming pregnant as first-calf heifers during a normal breeding season. A higher EPD is the more favorable direction and the EPD is reported in percentage units.

Top 35% Calving Ease Maternal (CEM), is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births with a higher value indicating greater calving ease in first-calf daughters. It predicts the average ease with which a sire’s daughters will calve as first-calf heifers when compared to daughters of other sires.

Top 10% Maternal Milk EPD (Milk), is a predictor of a sire’s genetic merit for milk and mothering ability as expressed in his daughters compared to daughters of other sires. In other words, it is that part of a calf’s weaning weight attributed to milk and mothering ability.

Top 25% Carcass Weight EPD (CW), expressed in pounds is a predictor of the differences in hot carcass weight of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Top 25% Marbling EPD (Marb), expressed as a fraction of the difference in USDA marbling score of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Top 10% Ribeye Area EPD (RE), expressed in square inches, is a predictor of the difference in ribeye area of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Top 25% Weaned Calf Value ($W), an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for preweaning merit. $W includes both revenue and cost adjustments associated with differences in birth weight, weaning direct growth, maternal milk and mature cow size.

Top 40% Feedlot Value ($F), an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning merit compared to progeny of other sires.

Top 25% Grid Value ($G), an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for carcass grid merit compared to progeny of other sires.

Top 25% Quality Grade ($QG) $QG represents the quality grade segment of the economic advantage found in $G. $QG is intended for the specialized user wanting to place more emphasis on improving quality grade. The carcass marbling (Marb) EPD contributes to $QG.

Top 30% Beef Value ($B), an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for post-weaning and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires.
