We thought we’d try something different with our 2022 Equation offering and bring a couple of open heifers to town.   Over the years,  we’ve had people inquire if we would ever consider selling calves.   With Equation always being such a late sale, it makes it tough for out of province breeders to have confidence in selecting heavy-in-calf bred heifers for what could be both a long and uncertain truck ride.  The combination of an exciting new sire group, and a heifer calf crop that dominated the boys 2:1 this year, made it an easy decision to try something new at Equation ’22.  We thought it only fitting that Giselle lead off our offering.  A perfect example of the first calf crop from Black Gold Battleborn 44H, Giselle is a homo-polled, heavily pigmented head turner that is already exhibiting massive capacity at a young age.  Soggy & deep sided, Giselle is simply a tremendous herd building piece with unlimited potential.

Giselle was selected by Robb Farms, Maidstone, SK for $15,500.

Sire: Black Gold Battleborn 44H. Our pick from Black Gold’s 2021 Bull String, with so many awesome ‘Battle Cry’ sons on offer that day, we modified his name to suit. Super impressed with his first calf crop.
