Durango is probably the most versatile bull in our offering, combining tremendous length of spine with a smooth shoulder. Consistent is a good word to use when describing the cow family that spawned him. We have worked closely with 10 generations of this “E” line, and his mother, Applecross Ella, consistently calves out within a 5 lb range for birth weight (85-90 lbs). She has had daughters sell to some notable herds, including Labatte Simmentals in 2019 and Beechinor Bros in 2014. He is definitely worth a long look on sale day!
