Manzano 1172 5655

Reg: AAA #18293579

5655’s EPD package is exactly what we want to produce. Unmatched calving ease (both Direct and Maternal), strong growth, moderate milk, low mature weight with a shot of extra marbling. On 55 calves he has a 95 birth ratio and a 102 weaning ratio.

However, what makes him unique is combining his EPDs with his phenotype. He his very thick and big ribbed and extremely easy keeping. He has great feet and is really correct. He is a very strong breeder and also has a good, easy to handle, disposition.

To top it off he has cow power to boot. Every Manzano cow in the first four generations of his pedigree has either been flushed or has had an impact on our program!

Manzano Transformation 4557

Reg: AAA #17914868

4557 was a standout in the 2014 born calves with an adjusted weaning weight of 740 (ratio 120) and an adjusted yearling weight of 1200 (ratio 118) in a frame score 4.0 package.

He is huge ribbed, very easy fleshing and will moderate frame size without sacrificing pounds. 4557 is very easy going and is definitely a disposition improver. His mother, “0006”, is one of our favorite Paxton cows. She is very big bodied and thick enough but still flat necked, feminine and well balanced.

“707” Manzano Rainmaker T07

Reg: 15848134

Sold to U Bar Ranch, Gila NM

707 is one of the more exciting heifer bulls we have raised to date. Not only does he have “sleep all night” calving ease numbers (in the top 1% for calving ease direct and birth weight) but he has the phenotype we strive for at Manzano Angus. He is big ribbed, has good scrotal development, and is muscular. He has a stout appearance not common in calving ease bulls.
