Bull of the Month - Angus, Ankonian Dynamo

Ankonian Dynamo picture.1

The Canadian Cattle Genome Project is focused on bringing cost effective genomics (DNA) tools to Canada’s beef producers to improve producer profitability and efficiencies in beef production. We are gathering samples from animals that have the greatest genetic influence on the Canadian cattle herd for DNA sequencing and genotyping. Over the next few months we will highlight bulls included in the project that helped establish their respective breeds in Canada.

This month’s profile is an Angus bull named “Ankonian Dynamo”.

Ankonian Dynamo is listed as one of The 165 Most Influential Bulls of Angus History. Sired by Emulous Pride 70 and Miss Emulous B and born in 1970 he went on to become the 1972 International Grand Champion Bull and the 1972 and 1973 Grand Champion of the US National Western Stock shows in Denver. In 1976 and 1977 he was the breed’s number one sire of registrations and became a Proven Pathfinder Sire. One of Ankonian Dynamo’s most famous sons, Sayre Patriot, went on to achieve similar honors: Grand Champion at State fairs, North American International show in Louisville Kentucky, and US National Western Stock shows in Denver. Both bulls were also red gene carriers that exemplified the attributes of the breed such as high fertility, superior marbling, and easy keeping.

 

Potheridge President - North (Red) Devon - CCGP Bull of the Month

Potheridge President - North (Red) Devon

This month’s profile is a North Devon bull named “Potheridge President”.

Potheridge President is arguably one of the most notable North (Red) Devon bulls imported into North America. Sired by Potheridge Ransom and Potheridge Dainty 9th, he was imported from England into the US in 1968 and his seedstock was imported into Canada shortly thereafter. He was the first Devon bull to become a Certified Meat Sire and won every category for production, reproduction, and meat quality in the American ABS trials in the late 1960s.
