Quixote presents an outstanding new bloodline with widespread commercial and seedstock appeal.
From the maternal angle Quixote is unsurpassed in the breed worldwide. Displaying awesome physical dimension & carcase composition, Quixote is generating a lot of interest locally and overseas.
Quixote’s dam, Brenda N8 is the first calf of Brenda L73 who fetched $30,000 in 2017 and is the maternal sister of Loch Up L133, the $85,000 high selling bull of the breed in 2016. They all descend from the legendary Millah Murrah matriarch Brenda Y33.
Adding to N8’s deep maternal credentials is her sire Klooney K42, backed by the stunning Prue H4. Klooney fetched $80,000 at the 2015 Millah Murrah sale & is well established as a cow making legend of the breed. 14 bulls from Klooney daughters averaged a staggering $26,857 at the 2020 Millah Murrah sale.
On the top side of the Q96 pedigree is Chisum 255, without doubt one of the best phenotype US bulls ever to come to these shores.
Quixote is an impressive bull to inspect, possessing a strong head, excellent feet, full flank, with meat right along the top line. He is an utter gentleman to handle.
