TRIO’s Balco ZOLTAR 175Z2 is a prime example of so many of the factors that have contributed to the success of the TRIO program – Powerful Cow Families, Proven Predictable Matings and Profitable Partnerships. ZOLTAR’s dam is the unparalled matron, Fancy 175/4. This mating to his sire, Statesman, has demonstrated the power of selection for performance, soundness and phenotype. ZOLTAR has been bred and raised in partnership with Rancho los Nogales from Ciudad Juarez, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Having seen the predictable, outstanding progeny of Fancy 175/4, Sra. Marlena Coronel and her son Fabian Balandrano acquired an embryo interest in her.

When Dr. Aaron Arnett from Select Sires set out to expand their Red Brangus sire offering, he selected ZOLTAR to headline. In his only show ring outing as yearling, ZOLTAR was named Reserve Grand Champion at the 2013 IBBA National Show. Judge Dr. Jason Cleere noted ZOLTAR’s structural design and integrity from the ground up. ZOLTAR is big footed, stout boned, long spined and level hipped. Add an expressive muscle design with a stylish phenotype and ZOLTAR is a complete package. In addition, ZOLTAR posted impressive yearling performance data, much like his sire Statesman, with a Yearling Weight of 1,287 pounds and ribeye area of 16.04.

ZOLTAR will improve structure and confirmation, adding balance and style. Expect the maternal power of Fancy 175/4 to flow through to his daughters. His sons should be thick with improved end product traits. We believe in the future of ZOLTAR and anxiously await his first calves.
