A lot to like about this bull. Good muscular, masculine bull..! I like his legs too. If I had to pick a negative point, it would be the loose leather up front and up through the throat latch. I like like your bull a lot!! What is his breeding? Do you have the scrotal numbers from his BSE?

Somewhere in the mess in the office yeah :roll: they were quite average, I think the semen test was around 85%. Tell me about loose leather, can it be a problem?

Thank you!! Really hoping he's getting our cows bred! He's with most of our favourite cows.

He's a very nice looking bull! Show his calves when there will be some born.

Massive meat maker.
Assuming he was purchased out of a sale by the picture. What sale? What is his pedigree?

You're right! Maple Lake Stock Farm. His sire is Wheatland High Voltage. Our other high voltage bull (6years old) is very pleasing with easy calving, lively and fast growing calves. Hopefully this guy does the same as high voltage is know for calving ease!

He is 16 months. You may have seen my other thread where we were scared he wasn't breeding the cows but now it looks like he knows what he's doing quite well! Whew.

I am not familiar with High Voltage, but definitely know Wheatland bulls in the past. Great program.
