Unmistakable of Brookhill

Post by Brookhill Angus » Wed Apr 24, 2019 12:46 pm

Here is one of our Unmistakable bulls out of a McCumber Angus sire.

291

He was born on 10/06/2017

Super docile, but gets the job done with a LOT of power. Not to mention, he is right kind for heifers. +12 CED, Top 3% for BW, top 15% DMI, I especially like the top 5% for heifer pregnancy, and top 10% for milk. We've used him on a few heifers recently and he settled them quickly.

Here is a video of him on Youtube

here is a link to his AAA profile

You have posted some nice cattle pics on here but i don't like this one. He is completely out of balance and his stride is short. This is an area where numbers might be great but he isn't going to do you any favours. Just my opinion.

I actually thought he walked well, but agree he is not a balanced bull. He "looks" like a CE Angus bull - no butt - well, only got a side view and his rump muscle does not come down into the rear legs, making him look like he is lacking rear muscling.

I’ve read your comments, can’t say I agree with them. This bull came out of two top Angus operations, McCumber and Stone Gate. So you are basically saying what you think of them.

I will get you all a rear view, he is not lacking in muscle.

I have a second Unmistakable bull, he’s almost a carbon copy.

They both have length to spare and plenty of room to grow.

BH, I think everyone is used to you showing mature well conditioned bulls and cows. From my calculations he is only 18 mths of age and is in working condition. He does seem to have a lot of length, he looks like growth in the front has to catch up with the rear end. He does seem to get along well, prowls like a cat.

It is fun to post videos and pictures on CT but as we all know, if you are serious about evaluating an animal, you need to see it on the ground. The video of this bull reveals some weaknesses, that in a live viewing my not be a concern.

He looks better in the video than the picture. Maybe with him looking like a GAR bull he'll be tender, have a nice ribeye and marble well. Brookhill we're hard to please, but I'm sure you've figured that out.

Yes but i am not happy with 70% of my own cattle. You have to call it as you see it. I'm not saying your cattle are crap unlike my superior animals. I would love to have cattle like a lot of the ones posted on here.

Very true Ken. We have grown accustomed to seeing exceptional cattle from BH, so when he posts what many would deem an average bull (phenotypically), it makes for some conversation.
