He will be an interesting one to watch for sure. I think this year I'm going to use VDAR Cedar Wind on quite a few. Going to try something a little different than our typical Schaff breeding.

Hickock at ABS. Find me a more well rounded EPD profile on a young and promising bull and I'll shake your hand

I like the CE and growth of Sandpoint Butkus. I think he earned his wings....I think when he sold he was just another Sav Final Answer son until his calves sold.

I like him too. Does SS still carry him though? Didn't see him offered last time I looked at their site.

I think Butkus no longer freezes semen.

I'm going to agree with SOB, Ten X. We have a Ten X son and we have had excellent results.

Sydgen Wake up Call (#16388600)
Currently in the top 50 bulls in the main sire summary for $B ($179.02) Top 15% for WW (64) and YW (117) with acceptable BW (0.5) and CED (+9) for heifers. No holes in his EPDS he is in the top 50% of the breed for every EPD except 1. Top 15% of the breed for all the $ values ($W, $F, $G, $B, etc).
I have seen him a few times in person, perfect rib shape, exceptional feet and legs, docile. Still breeding cows at 8 years of age. We have some coming 3 yr olds here that sure look like they are going to be fantastic cows. Bred back early for calf number 2. Looking forward to this years calves for sure.
Maternal brother to Sydgen CC&7 with an EXT type of story to his early life.

I couldn't find a photo of him. Seems like they would be promoting him a little more.

AirGator,
www.amonettfarms.com.

Wake has two big problems with promotion, first he sold for a song at Midland (~4500) while his penmate sold for over $60,000. Second he is 8 and the pedigree is ancient by semen company standards. Wake is in the Origen catalog but the picture is of him in his working clothes, by the looks of it he was putting in some OT that month.. I gave you the web address for the owner because there are some pictures in there of him in better condition. It shows his ribshape and mass better.

I have used some more popular bulls that do some things better but Wake has really hit every mark for us so far. He has one big hurdle left, fertility/longevity.. I wont know on that one for a while. Early results are very good, the weaned nice calves for 2 yr olds and bred back for the early part of calving season according to preg check. I used him on heifers last couple of years and got a bunch of bull calves that didn't quite make the cut, so they ended up in the first group of steers going to harvest. We keep less than 10% bulls intact, these calves were in the 10-20% range out of heifers, so they grow.
