‘The Best Beef Bull in the Business’ 7AN222 Predestined passed away on New Year’s Eve 2013 at his first home, Gardiner Angus Ranch, in Ashland, KS at the age of 14. He was living out his retirement years at his birthplace and will be remembered in the history of Select Sires as one of the most influential beef bulls ever to wear a 7-code. Predestined served his time as an AI sire well–from his arrival in 2001 all the way to 2012 when he got to ‘go home’, he was a favorite at Select Sires. A steady producer of high-quality semen, Predestined became the standard for high conception that we compare other beef bulls against. The high beef bull for semen sales at Select Sires for a run of 5 years in a row, Predestined was as sound at 14 as he was as a calf. Used for years as a reference sire in our Young Sire Program, Predestined made it easy to ‘test against the best.’

It’s a good feeling to know that you worked with the best–whether you cared for Predestined at headquarters in Plain City, or promote and sell Predestined genetics at the member level. Yet the people who have truly benefitted from this great bull are our customers. Predestined has generated tremendous added value with his offspring–his influence will be felt for a long, long time. We are proud to call Predestined ‘The Best Beef Bull in the Business’ Predestined in 2013 at GAR
