Angus Bulls To Reduce Frame Size

I have a cow that has too much frame for me and could use more efficiency, she makes great freezer beef steers. I was wondering if there were any sires out there too reduce frame size and add a little efficiency, as I don’t wanna keep any females out of her if they are gonna carry on these less than ideal traits for me.

Use the AAA sire evaluation. I'm not sure if you want feed efficiency, better cutout or more growth.

SAV Bruiser might just be your ticket. Great efficiency in a very moderate size package. Very proven to do what you are asking.

That might be the best bet as I already have Bruiser in the tank.

If you do not register your Angus crop, why not use a RA bull like Brown Redemption? Will reduce size and add efficiency.

Doing so would scare the bejesus out of the sheeple AAA members who're conditioned to believe red's are a defect. :roll:

Rito 6EM3 of Emblazon 4L1

Used both pretty heavily at home. Charlo DEFINITELY knocks them down a frame score, but they are incredibly thick and long. Steers had good growth too.

I really like the 6EM3 heifers and cows I have. Moderate and pretty perfect phenotype. Steers wouldn’t blow you away, but they were bad. Depended very much on the cow they were out of.

Neither are going to make you get too excited based on carcass and growth EPDs, but they make good females.
