Help! Our bull just melted!

Post by Brookhill Angus » Sun Mar 10, 2019 5:16 pm

He's been out for about 6 weeks in mud that is a foot deep, really sh.tty weather, climbing hills, and servicing some of our bigger, older gals.

I'm really worried about the loss of condition. You guys told me he would "melt down" and I can see exactly what y'all were talking about. LOL!

I’m consulting with Ron AKA “Bright Raven” on how we can re-condition him. We may need some time with “pet” cows to get back on track.

Here he is on Youtube

I have sons out of him ready to go, PM me if interested.

Why did you cut the video when he was about to walk, as a potential buyer always wants to see how the bull moves about. He's a solid boy, if he can get 40 females bred in 60 days you are doing something right.

I agree. He’s certainly well conditioned.

I’ve posted videos of him walking, running, jumping and just about everything else. Nothing was good enough for CT.

I don’t even bother now.

A good mature bull shouldn't melt much over winter with cows, especially when fed good. About the easiest time for a bull out breeding cows, is fall breeding.
I would like a different set of rear legs on him, but a good looking bull other wise.

He’s thick. Everywhere. I can recondition him for you if you need me to. Bring him down here in May and let him melt till September. I will knock an easy 400 pounds off of him for you! He’s a hoss.

Pretty good looking bull really. If his colour was right he'd fit in here.

Curious, why did you delete all your other videos off your YouTube channel?

They aren’t deleted, they just aren’t open for you. I’ve never seen anyone search like you do, ha!

Makes me think I have something you are interested in.

Interesting.

No, I assure you that you don’t. I’d bet my best bull on it.

I didn’t think you could block a username on YouTube, particularly without knowing the username?

Could it be that you didn’t want someone knowing this video isn’t of your bull JUST coming off breeding for the last 6 weeks? That he hasn’t melted, cuz he hasn’t worked? And a viewer could see that other videos were shot at the same time, some 8 months ago?

Do you know what cache is?

He will never get the chance to melt given how few cows he has to service while being fed.

Nice clean fronted bull, seems to have length, video isn’t long enough to see him walk and never get a true side shot. No chance to see if he is deep and square hipped. He is good condition, maybe a tad bit too fluffy(fat). https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_sxUxFcCqss Here’s a bull we are breeding to, they let him walk. Get your bull to move and lets see all four corners, he looks good. I’m heading to the Crouthamel sale on Saturday to go see some V910 progeny.
