I would take a look into Fleckvieh, but I seem to be in minority for SIMM influence.

I’m looking into using a Baldy simangus/simmental bull on black angus cows. Trying to find the best one for WW and retaining heifers. Some that I’ve found have really low milk numbers. With retaining heifers I don’t want cows that do not milk well. Thanks for any help!

I haven't seen the pedigree on this one, but there may be some Lock N Load in the background somewhere... :lol:

However, if Lock N Load leaves good calves then I will not argue against his use!

Hey Lucid, do you have any photos of Optimizer calves that you have bred?

Ken
These are my September calves taken a couple days ago. The calf on the far right is an Optimizer. Bull calf with White on his face.
Image
This heifer calf is an Optimizer and she is extremely docile.
Image
The heifer calf nursing is an Optimizer.
Image
This is an Optimizer bull from fall 2018. This is the third Optimizer bull sold to this buyer. He likes Optimizer.
