No such thing as one size fits all as 'the best' - Connealy Consensus - Hoover Dam - Right Answer
could be the best choice for different reasons ... I have to go with Right Answer... bcs it's says so in his name
Yes they are. Do a lot of things right, now I agree with previous post that not one bull fits all. But hoover dams have been very good phenotype wise, very good udders and good feet as well as spring of rib and depth of body. Ours have been docile as well which is always a plus in my book. Used him in both our registered herd and purebred herd. Sampling a son of his called SS Niagara in purebred herd, have calves born this fall from him.
Air Gator, I like Leachman Right Time the best, the Hyline 338 probably his best son at least for me. If the Hyline is there the Leachman is just a generation back. I like them both for making cows, maybe not the showiest or prettiest but around here make great momma cows.
I have some right answer daughters that are very nice. They are a little smaller than I like, but raise a tank of a calf every year, breed back well, and hold condition well. Have to be careful not to get them too fat. They have been milking a calf since mid January and still look great. Very little feed, and grass has been absoulty horrible this spring. I have some chisum daughters that will go into production next year. Sure excited about them. Bred a bunch of cows too Reknown a couple weeks ago in hopes to get some awesome heifers
