Yes I noticed the sheath too from the pictures and confirmed that in person. His hips are higher. The bull he is out of was pretty thick he may grow into it more but right now the sheath angle has me thinking steer him.Baldy bull looks like a good rip. Don't care for the looks of that Calf, no rear end whatsoever and a sloppy sheath and his high set of hips.
Why so long? You aren’t doing the fertility in your herd any good imoo………He has been with the heifers since 4/27. He is a bit smaller framed than I prefer, as is his mother. She has her her third calf this year and age wise should just have had 2. She gained time with this years calf. I figure that he may sire some early maturity and fertility. His sire was an AI son of PA Power Tool and out of an HA Image Maker daughter. I have used several bulls over the years from the BR New Design 036/Predestined line and have had great results fertility wise with those bulls and sired growth on their calves.
This is the above pictured bulls dam.

With our heifers most years barring a problem, come preg check time one or two will be open and immediately culled and the rest will be bred within about a. 6 week window.Why so long? You aren’t doing the fertility in your herd any good imoo………
