Checkmate    Solid Black      Smooth Polled
 

   

  

Checkmate was added to our herd bull battery to emphasize rib and muscle in a solid black, smooth polled, outcross pedigree. He traces back to Epinal, widely known for his maternal strength. For those looking for moderate, stout, outcross genetics, Checkmate is the bull.

GeneSTAR tested to be a 2 star sire (homozygous) for meat tenderness.

Checkmate sired a group of 54 finishing steers with the following kill data: 81.4% Prime and Choice; 64.8% Dressing percentage; 14.12 Ribeye Area, and 100% Yield Grade 1, 2, and 3.
