Their Black Tor was the first [owa bull of any breed so certified, and their Torbey Marshall was the second Iowa Angus so named. Both bulls are now held jointly by Pioneer and by Curliss Breeding Service, Inc., Carey, 111. The Lagerstroms have reached one of their initial goals with the herd producing 1,000 pound calves in 12 months under "ranch conditions." The calves are not creep-fed. The cow is expected to "get the calf going" toward its weight goal. Under the performance testing program, normal weaning weight of calves in the herd has been increased by 17 per cent in the past 10 years — from 435 to 510 pounds. Pioneer officials indicate that "the development work already done with this herd — makes it one of the best herds of Angus cattle in the country.
