After the sale we quickly added Q29 to the 3R program and his first calves born in the spring of 2021 feature the same attributes as their sire.

For this reason we anticipate Fair-N-Square may be well positioned as a 'cow maker' in our pedigrees into the future.

3R LEADING ANGUS DONOR FEMALES
A selection of Elite Angus Donors in the 3R Program
ABOUT 3R HIGH PERFORMANCE ANGUS DONOR FEMALES:
In selecting the nucleus for the 3R Angus herd we sought only the absolute best. The best cows from the best programs. Our history with breeding seedstock taught us this is the only place to be and this allows us to breed cattle that meet our objectives from the outset.
The programs we sought our initial genetics met our criteria. They run their cows on purely commercial terms - a cow survives on her merits alone. They place emphasis on cow lines and believe in the value of a maternal cow and they have proven the carcass merit of their herds at coalface of our industry.
Genetically the global impact of the New Trend line is one that we sought in the 3R herd. On average the 3R herd carries 12.5%-25% influence from 036 and we are actively working to maintain this influence line into the future. This line has proven itself as near unrivalled for maternal function, is high marbling and the cattle have strong Angus features. Line breeding generates maximum consistency, a benefit from birth to processing, large lines of consistently good cattle.
The 3R cow is a maternal powerhouse, she is functional, she knows how to tough it out and she knows how to turn grass into beef - but her most important aspect is she's a breeder in every definition of the word.
