6538 is a game changer. He not only has outstanding actual performance, but he is in the top 10% for nearly every EPD and top 3% for $CEZ, $BMI, and $F. He was the most efficient feed converter by way of RFI and 2nd highest actual conversion F:G ratio.

A low birthweight Profit son that is very moderate in size. He is the second highest %IMF bull in the offering.

Lot 13 Ash Valley Optimus 6527
