Bull Description

Checkpoint is an outstanding Type sire with a solid sire stack and maternal pedigree behind him. He currently ranks as the best bull for Type here in the UK as well as the 2nd highest sire for Locomotion! His sire, Commander, is a Mogul son who has already been used heavily as a very successful sire of sons around the globe.

Checkpoint’s maternal line extends back to nine generations of VG/EX dams. This great cow family, from the Sandy-Valley herd, based in North America has produced the likes of BW Marshall and Bolton!

His early genomic proof indicates daughters will be profitable, easy milking cows with balanced and uniform frames.

He is also an easy sire to use in larger groups of cattle as he excludes the common Goldwyn, Shottle and O-Man bloodlines.
