Chinangus bulls

Post by Cress27 » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:36 pm

Anyone ever had any good or bad experiences breeding these bulls to first time heifers. I’m think of trying them or gelbvieh.

Plenty of good lbw chiangus or balancer bulls out there to use. Limflex or Simangus.

I can't remember which member on here did had some lbw balancer bulls. One bred his bull to a Dexter cow and she had the calf no problems.

Cost vs effect. A straight bred Sim bull would do the OP more good than a chiangus. But they are his so he gets to do what he wants to.

I bought a high percentage chi bull a few years ago. Maybe 4 or 5. He passed his BSE, but when show time come, he couldn’t perform. I wish I had gotten a calf crop out of him.
Your not a small business owner. Your a stay at home mom trapped in a pyramid scheme.

I bet as sharp as some those sale barn buyers are even they wouldn't know they were buying SAV America sired calves. Most of them wouldn't care either.

When have I really listened? My old vet got out of the large animal biz, but I have a new gal that is top notch, she said she would be here ASAP if a problem arises. Green light for me.

I’m just smiling right now. You’ll probably pull it off.

Especially if that barn is located in Dinkville USA.
