our own recipe bull

Post by cowgirl8 » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:47 am

Those who know me here, might remember our mutant bull... yeah yeah, not really mutant, but shows tremendous growth and wide body. Over the years we've kept several of these bulls and have them out working.
Bull who was bit by a snake on his Johnson was at the vet, original one of course. Vet mentioned he was a nice looking wagyu bull. LOL... Son told him he was mostly angus. Argument ensued... Son finally told the vet the bull was born on our place and we have no wagyu bulls.
Eventually, I want to find what mix this bull is. They throw consistent calves that all have this look and buyers like them. I think we have 5 of these 'mutant' bulls now in colors of light red to brindle. They throw a lot of brindle. As far as I know, they are mostly angus with a mix of sim and simbra. I believe its the touch mutant simbra gene that is giving them the growth. Theres something that that simbra mix that makes a bovine huge.... One day i'll have a dna test done to see what the mix actually is...heck, might even have our own breed eventually....lol.. wouldn't that be something :lol:

Wagyu might be fine meat but not attractive on the hoof.

Google wagyu. Your probably seeing young bulls or bulls that someone picks up the sale thinking they are wagyu. Our bull isn’t beautiful or show quality but he makes nice steers buyers like. We had a simbra that looks like a brown Swiss. You just never know what you’ll get is simbra is in the mix.

I respect the fact that in the 5 years you’ve been on these boards you haven’t let anything posted here alter your game plan or aspirations.

That commitment to one’s self is hard to find these days.

Some of the most successful people that have ever lived have that same trait.

Most look like crap, but a few look pretty decent.

He looks a lot like that picture. He didn't get the tall simbra trait, in fact, he's kind of short. He's very wide and that's what he puts on his calves.. We tried a bull our daughter raised. He had that wonky simbra gene. He was half black Hereford and put a white face on every calf he produced. We sold him a this breeding season because if he was bred to one of our mostly sim cows, his calves would be gigantic. We lost 2 cows, I calf and had to pull a couple, all out of sim cows. In any other cow, they were small birthweight.. He was ugly though and I didn't mind getting rid of him. We've kept a few of his heifers and so far they've been outstanding with no calving problems.. He made nice calves, so we were torn whether to sell him.
TT, i'll take that as a compliment...
