Daigger Angus purchased Trowbridge Wizard 931 at the spring 2010 Trowbridge Angus bull sale in Ghent, New York.  This bull blends herd sire producing Pure Pride and Mignonne families from the mating of the Genex/CRI sire B C Lookout 7024 with Trowbridge Pure Pride 613.  Pure Pride has a progeny birth ratio of 98 combined with a progeny weaning ration of 109 on her first natural calf after selling one-half interest for $23,000 for a $46,000 valuation as the featured Lot 1 female of the 2007 Trowbridge Fall Sale.  The dam of this bull is a full sister to the Accelerated Genetics sire Trowbridge Crusader 614 who was the $75,000 featured Lot 1 bull of the 2006 Trowbridge Fall Sale, and another brother was the $11,500 top-selling Lot 1 bull of the 2009 Trowbridge Bull Sale to Mud Creek Angus.  The grandam of this sire is a full sister to Genex/CRI sire B C Matrix.  Click on Wizard's photograph for EPDs and pedigree.
