Rosan Fabio elicited great interest from knowledgeable cattlemen, participants and casual visitors alike, when he took part in the Special Performance Test Class event held at the International Pretoria Show, South Africa.
At age 27 months Fabio weighed 1070Kg's.
This superb bull, described by ARC-AII Irene Bull Testing Station Manager Leon de Lange as "exceptional" recorded an ADG of 2171g (Index 129) and a feed conversion ratio of 4.77 (Index 126) against 18 contemporaries in the Phase C Test at Irene. This performance earned Fabio a Gold Merit.
These results eclipsed the already excellent performances by both his Sire (Rosan Carlo) and his Grandsire (Danubio). Seen below are the excellent results achieved by the three generations.
