He is the 35th bull in the nation to receive this award from "The" Performance Registry In.. ternational,. .Including, ALL beef breeds. This 1 2100 pound bull, Black Tor, was bred by Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Lagerstrom of Toreby Farms, Burt, Iowa. His superior progeny producing ability has been made available to commercial producers throughout the world for the past several years, by the Curtiss Breeding Service, Gary, Illinois. Black Tor is a product of a carefully planned breeding program for genetic improvement. The Lagerstrom purebred herd was established in 1948, and was closed to outside blood lines in 1950. The weaning weight data and carcass evaluation program has been officially supervised by the Extension Service of Iowa State University since 1956. Black Tor received the Certified Meat Sire Award through the carcass evaluation of his progeny produced by closely related dams, five of which were his half sisters. The twelve steers and heifers tested, fed in the breeder's feed lot, averaged 982 pounds shrunk live weight at 462 days of age, when slaughtered. The hot carcass weight averaged 628 Ibs. with a 1.36 pound hot carcass weight per day of age. They graded choice with a marbling score of 6 (moderate amount) and the rib eye area was 2.22 sq. in. per 100 pounds of hot carcass weight. The back fat maximum was 0.12 inches. The carcass evaluation was supervised by the Extension Service with the cooperation of the John Morrell Co. at Estherville. Black Tor probably carries the most complete production pedigree in history. He received the Iowa Beef Improvement Assn's. "Sire Merit Award" for producing 83 calves, in the breeder's herd, grading choice or better, and exceeding a 205 day weaning weight of 450 pounds, steer basis, adjusted to mature age of dam, without creep feed or nurse cow. The sire of Black Tor is Blackcap of Toreby, who has a Pri record of 209 steers and heifer calves, also in the breeder's herd, averaging 511 pounds adjusted weaning weight Pri, at 205 days of age non- creep fed, The sire's classification score is 87, and he is the holder of a Three Star Production Certificate by Pri as well as Iowa Beef Improvement Assn.'s Sire of Merit Award.
