Sire: GGT P Redford 18R
Dam: WJM Keri 294K


NORTH STAR is certain to be one of the premier black polled purebred herdsire prospects that will sell from our breeding program this year.  He is powerful and impressive with tremendous muscle down his top, through his quarter and in his stifle.  His dam is the very prolific and productive WJM Keri 294K.  Keri is best known as the mother of our flagship herdsire, MAC Navigator 281N.  Navigator needs no introduction to anyone studying Salers pedigrees or the sire summary as he is the Salers breed's #2 ranking sire for both Milk EPD and Marbling EPD.  Keri is also the mother of WJM Roxanne 248R, the $8500 high selling female of the 2007 National Salers Sale, selling to Triple C Farms of Jamestown, TN.  Roxanne was also the 2007 National Reserve Junior Champion Salers Female. 

North Star has a strong liklihood of being homozygous polled, with his sire, Redford, proven to be homozygous polled and his dam having never produced a horned calf.  With his positive birth to weaning spread, muscular phenotype and powerful pedigree, we think NORTH STAR has potent herdsire potential.  MacDonald Ranches is retaing a 1/2 revenue-sharing semen interest in NORTH STAR.
