But on February 5th, we saw him, after working during two months with 46 cows in the field and we asked for ourselves : could he be able to lend us a hand in the Exhibition of Durazno? we prepared him this month, he recovered and was perhaps he was more beautiful now than in the Prado when he was 100 kilos more, "said Dr. Pablo Zerbino. This is a senior bull, defined by Zerbino as a"very correct and plenty of meat that was sent to work with cows for two months; he was healthy of legs and hands, not a detail, not a problem and that's important because this is it: we are preparing genetics to produce in the fields, world recognized meat. He said, "is a reflection of what we are looking for in the cabin." He came to "Durazno" as a calf, and in the Expo Prado he achieved as reserved champion as two years and as senior bull. "We always had great faith in him because it is a correct animal, mild, moderate, with good EPD data that is improving as his descendence is arriving"
