R-454 carriers nice growth numbers for a minus birth weight animal. ADG would have been better but his dam died a couple of months before weaning. Can only figure she got jumped while lying down, after that she just could't get up, so had to put her down. The bull calf hung in there and is right now anyway the nicest shaped bull in the pen and the first to let me scratch him. 3rd highest marbling bull @ +1.05, top 10%. .
