Naturally mated and IVF sire.
Elmo Picasso was selected at Beef 2018 and purchased privately for $40,000. Our breeding objectives aligned with the breeders of this exciting sire. A homozygous POLLED bull with strong head, clean underline, abundance of length and width and a quiet temperament. His sire has produced very consistent progeny and he was collected at 19 months of age. His dam, Elmo Lady Lucille 855/5 (PP), conceived at 16.5 months and is very sound in the udder. She had two calves in a row with a days-to-calving interval of 358 and was pregnancy tested heavily back in calf.
Picasso had semen collected successfully straight after Beef 2018, a great achievement at only 19 months of age and so soon after a stressful event. For a bull of his age, he has a very evident large scrotal circumference. His grandmother is still producing in the Elmo herd.
His Breedplan figures indicate so far that he is above average in DTC, SS and EMA.
