Making excuses for bulls will get you nowhere. We obviously have different standards when it comes to phenotype, to each his own.
Take him off the cows for a few months, give him feed, wash and fluff.
Only the uninformed think you can feed ribs longer.... :roll:
Take him off the cows for a few months, give him feed, add an inch of backfat and an inch of fat on the brisket, that will make him two inches "deeper chested", if that is enough for your conditions then you are fortunate to have an easier environment to run cattle in than I have. I was asked why I didn't like him and I gave the reasons, nothing more, I am not trying to convince Carla to change breeds or her breeding program, I just gave the answer to her question.
Even the forum expert will want semen. WELL Probably help if he were the right breed. :shock:
