Why no performance data on ANY of the cattle on offer?  If you want commercial acceptance this should be a no brainer.

Looking at the semen lots, does anyone have information about Able Seaman and Krakatoa?

Don't overlook lot 2 an Element 79 son out of one of our top producers, a Trademark daughter from Bell M!   Both parents have collected their fair share of banners and his dam has always thrown us a good one, especially with this guy!  He's got Element stamped all over him and definitely one to check out.  Come check out our string at Agribition or view online at dlms.ca. This is a late summer photo, updated video will be available on DLMS on Monday, Pics of Element 79 and Bell M Kathryn 81W also attached

I might be a little biased about this guy because his grandsire came from here but he looks like a pretty good herd bull prospect for someone (thumbsup)
Here is a link to his video taken at Agribition this week. I can't find the link to all the videos of the sale lots. Does anyone have it?
