Bull of the Month - Roxy's Jack Dempsey 63R, Charolais

This month's profile is a Charolais bull named "ROXY'S JACK DEMPSEY 63R".

ROXY'S JACK DEMPSEY 63R heavily influenced the current generation (2006-2011) of registered Charolais animals. Sired by S CCC Elevations Knockout and D Roxy Caid 35J and born in 1983 he was a champion who sired champions. His progeny have been Reserve Champions, Grand Champions, and Calf World Champions at places like Farm Fair and the Canadian Western Agribition.

The success of his offspring have made him the highest rated bull in the Banner Of Show Sires (BOSS, 1984-2011) which keeps track of Charolais animals and their progeny that win in the show ring. Roxy's Jack Dempsey 63R is a Charolais bull to remember and a great example of the attributes of the breed: fast growth rate, excellent muscle development and superior meat quality with a high percentage of saleable cuts.
