As long as the legs are out, and you don't have breach, we've never had a problem with one. I have never seen one have a reverse presentation calve unassisted, but as soon as I know it's backwards, I pull it.

I honestly think presentation issues are just bad luck. Don't see how it could be genetic.

Originally I thought they were all from my dad's angus, but went back and looked the dates up and one was from my brangus bull (the first dead one - 100 pounder). The angus that sired the last two calves was just sold, and at 5 years old, he never once sired a backwards calf. One wise person did mention to me about the possibility of it being the bulls "fault".

Sounds like the bull just put a few in backwards.
