Grand Champion bull MAE Magnum PI sired by TLC Silver Link

March 4, 2016 Brilan Oxtoby showed TLC Turks Lacy to 3rd place in the Commercial Heifer Class of eight heifers at Regionals in Muskogee OK.  Adam had 1st place and 7th overall steer in premium sale. Trey had 2nd place Hereford.  TLC Turks Lacy is double registered Beefbuilder Braunvieh and Maintainer. Judge loved her structure and flexibility just needed to be heavy bred and more condition.  Which we realized that before she was shown.  Lucky heifer to be alive. Thanks Oxtoby Family.
