This bull hit over 500" at the age of five and has numerous awards including International Champion in 2016! This bull displays tremendous antler mass after the 4th tine and 52” long heavy beams. He is the sire to SPR 561C above and he has other sons just like him. He is also passing on huge body size in both his male and female offspring which has increased carcass weights on our meat animals significantly! We retired him as a sire in 2018 after six years of breeding.
