This bull has been likely DNA verified as he is being used as an AI by ABS Genus.  He is not unique.  Many other Angus bulls just as heavily muscled are in the UK due to market demand.
Double muscled cattle are what the commercial man wants in Europe.  The Angus bred had to do this to survive in the marketplace.  Also the existence of double muscled Angus has been known since the 1950's.  I remember seeing pictures of them in animal breeding textbooks.
Lastly double muscled cattle are more muscular all over not just in the round.  These cattle are also very lean and do not fatten like traditional Angus.  This makes them  very efficvient in intensive beef programs like in the UK.  They would not work here as the problems with producing these cattle are too great for those with big numbers of cows to over come.

If you're simply chasing carcass merit, I'm not sure you can get much better than (Rito) 9M25, problem there, is  good luck finding semen.  That being said, I've seen Crossover sire some darn good carcass cattle (including reserve carcass steer @ 2010 NJAS), but there you run the risk of dirty pedigrees.  GAR Ingenuity offers a clean pedigree with astounding carcass numbers (including a 1.23 REA last I checked), backed by Igenity; just not sure he's the right type & kind for my style of cattle- then again, he's a TERMINAL bull, so all progeny are assumed to be projected as fat cattle anyway IMO.
Hope this helps :)
Impossible as they may seem, you've got to fight for every dream, because who's to know which one you let go would have made you complete
