Black Icon progeny have set new standards for Purebred black Braunvieh sales, shows and in carcass contests.   The progeny average 83 pounds at birth on bull & heifer calves "Black & Polled" Gestation has been 272 to 282 days from Fullblood & Purebred Donor's..    You can safely use him on first calf heifers.  He works beautiful on angus too!  They are thick and he adds milk.  Plus he gives them a great disposition.   We are using Black Icon daughters exclusively in the Club Calf Program.  TLCC Turk S6103 ET  goes back to a Black Icon daughter named TLC Black Bev K2386.  She is the Dam of Donor TLC Whoa Girl N3100 Turk's dam.   Both are still in the herd in 2015.  Bev is pushing 16 years of age with her Spring 2015 bull calf at side.  Turks momma just calved her 2015 fall baby heifer by TLCC Zip Code.  She still has a beautiful udder and has never missed a calf since 2005 when she had her first baby!
