First off I now have Supercharger in my tank, will be looking to use him next year, I’ve posted this before I really like his old genetics and the dams behind him. I think his daughters will breed up really nice to Rainfall. Second thought, I’m really interested in this Falls Angus sales. It will be interesting to see if President even has any progeny selling. I think most of the headlining sales are going to be influenced by Baldridge bulls and of course some of Coneally’s. If I had to bet money, I think the most progeny out there will continue to be Cowboy Up, Payweight and a new player in Playbook.

Glad to hear that you are going with Supercharger. I agree with pretty much all you said above.

I will have a President son ready in September. He may be sold, I will know soon. If not I will keep him for clean up duty. The other President son will be ready by November.

It only takes one exceptional donor to change a herd forever.

I'd rather have a herd of good cows than one great cow. That's the downside of ratios and EPDs. To have some over 100 you have to have some under 100. To have some to excel at EPDs some have to falter at EPDs. To have one great means that most of your choices or selections were poor.

I’d rather have one great cow, flush her, and have a lot of recips to put those embryos in. Rinse and repeat, until an even better cow comes along.

With that being said, I have quite a few that are above average. Just a few are exceptional and I want to exploit that.

Good God this is a bull!

We only have one calf so far from him, but more on the way.
Tell me what is so great about this bull? Give us your reasons for using him. I don't want to hear about epds or fancy donor cows I want to know what he brings to the table for your cow herd. Just like in 4H or FFA stand up and give your reasons.

EPD's and fancy donors matter. LOL!

FEET! Look at his claw and angle EPD's
Cows in the pedigree. The very best that SAV ever bred.
The bulls, legends in the business.

Blackcap May 4136
Madame Pride 0075
Rito 707
Recharge
Leachman Right Time

He brings genetics from bloodlines that I know have worked for cattleman far and wide, and he has a phenotype that I really like. This list goes on and on. I also wanted to see how such a bull would cross with my largest cows. The result has been as expected. Gasoline on fire.

Maybe Creek can expand on this, or offer his reasons for going with Supercharger?

I like him because he has a big crest and a chubby tummy.

I'm just a complete rookie you are right, it's pure DUMB LUCK the genetics we have on our operation, if you could even call it that. LOL!

When I pick a bull, I ask myself, "is he purty? YUP!" "Does he have a big set of stones? YUP!" "Will he produce cattle that make most everything else look like dinks? YUP!"

Those are mostly my guidelines. There is nearly ZERO thought that goes into my breeding selections. I just cross my fingers and hope for lady luck to shine on me. So far, so good.
