Bull of the Month - Angus, Ankonian Dynamo

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.
