Cannon’s EPD Profile (Feb 2023)

Homozygous Polled. Full Fleckvieh.   Cannon is another great example of the type of bulls Confidence has produced, with a little bit of stretch and capacity and a shoulder stamp that just says Simmental.  A grand-daughter of our foundation Dora Lee Christina cow, Cannon’s dam, Applecross Charlotte, typically gives us heifers.  Charlotte is a very moderate frame, large capacity cow with a working weight of 1500 lbs, allowing her to wean off a very high percentage of her weight each fall.   Over the years, we have retained four of her daughters, while also selling a daughter in Equation 2018 to Skywest Simmentals, a grand-daughter to Beechinor Brothers in 2019, and a grandson also sold in 2021 to Smith Simmentals.    Look for Cannon to produce a strong set of replacement females while taking care of all the horns!
