March 2017 EBV Percentiles for Blelack DIGGER

Son of Digger: Whitecliffe Highlight

March 2017 EBV Percentiles for Anside FOREMAN

Described as one of the most recognised sires in the breed for his curve bending figures, it comes as no suprise that Digger holds almost 1,900 pedigree registrations. His balanced offering can be demonstrated through his EBV’s, ranking him in the top 1% of the breed for calving ease direct and carcass weight, along with terminal and self replacing index. Although a recognised sire for serving heifers and producing female replacements, Digger can still consistently produce a class winner. Digger’s son, Whitecliffe Highlight sold for 31,000gns in Carlisle in 2013 where earlier that day he took Reserve Junior Champion, Reserve Overall Male Champion and Reserve Supreme Champion.
