Thanks for posting the pictures, I always like the feedback from other folks perspectives.
The first bull is twenty-five days older than the second one.
Both bulls will be slick haired...All of our cattle are. Very important in fescue country.
The second bull's dam was injured in a tractor incident feeding hay as a two year old nursing her first
calf. Not anything geneticly. What is most impressive was the fact she was crippled and lost
most of her mobility and became very, very thin. I was sure she would not get bred back and
couldn't send her to town in the condition she was in so I took her to the commerial herd and
just let her mend up and gain some weight so I could sell her. To my surprize, she was bred
and had this bull. She has since calved again and had a very good bull but due to a bad attitude,
he got an attitude adjustment with the knife. There was a fifty pound difference last fall when these
two were weighed. The second bull actually had better post weaning performance since there was
a wider spread between the two at weaning. Both bulls will work on heifers.
Like some of the comments, one will just select on personal preference.
They both look good, in pics I just preferred #1. Your cattle always looks good in pictures, hope you took no offense.
I see you have the yellow weed over in your part of Ky too.
No offence here Tom, just always admired the younger bull since I knew his history. Tremendous fertility demonstrated
in that young cow. We do have that yellow weed here and it is getting worse. Will have to get on a weed control program
next spring, or if anyone has had this weed, I would like suggestions on what to do with it.
