Thought everyone might enjoy a few more pictures. I took these today.

This bull hasn't seen anything but grass since he was sold as a yearling. He's 4 years old now. He bred around 40 head last fall for one of his other owners. He's a frame 5 bull.

How would a man go about getting some semen out of this bull? Or buying hiM? ;-)

I see your a new poster, welcome, You can pm me, "personal message", about the bull, we do have semen available on him.

I won't be able to answer to many questions today, I'll be hauling bulls all day.

This is an "informative" open letter to all of the CattleToday Forum members who are sincerely interested in discovering, learning, and understanding the finer points of breeding and raising EXCELLENT beef cattle.

Ned Jr. has just about the finest HERD of Hereford beef cattle that I have observed pictured on this forum. His breeding is an example of years of studying his BU$INE$$ and the minute details that are required in making a success of the Beef Catlle business. Many of you newer breeders have shown pictures and have asked questions - such as "What do you think of this Bull?" - or - "Critique this bull. I have a thick hide and can take criticism.". In order to answer these types of questions, many of the posters on CT have attempted to help you understand that more information is needed before one can really offer a reasonable kind of assistance for you than just giving an opinion of an individual animal, Bull or Cow. We need to know of what kind of cows your herd is comprised - Phenotype, Genetics, Ages, and the kind or type of operation you are running, such as Cow-calf, or Terminal (Feedlot candidates), size of your cow herd and many other details which will point us in the general direction of what you need to know for us to be able to help you in making breeding selection decisions - not "Just what we think of a particular bull".

These pictures that Ned Jr. has posted here show you what really can be accomplished by knowing what you wish to achieve in raising Beef Cattle, and the direction you want to take your herd IN THE FUTURE!


I suggest that you use these pictures as a TEMPLATE for patterning your efforts in raising beef cattle and aim for the success that Ned Jr. has acquired with HIS breeding program!

Ned, you have beautiful cattle, My Friend!

I especially like the first bull calf, Ned! What is his sire/dam?

Ned you always post great pics of great cattle. If others on the board had as nice cattle I would be always complimentary. Lots of others just don't get it. My suggestion is that a few of the Hereford breeders get a bus and go to Colorado and buy some of Ned's cattle. I'd be very happy to have them. I would be interested to see how well they would do in harsher parts of our country. I suspect that if they come through the tough snowy winters they would do ok over here. :clap:

I wish that he were mine.

I hope that some of the posters who have posted pictures of their current and future herd sires see this thread, and take a sincere second look at their bulls.

Thank you for posting the pictures. I enjoyed looking at them. I have a fondness for Hereford cattle.

I've seen Ned's cattle first hand and I can tell you that there is no real bottom end in his herd. Top to bottom, they are pretty consistent - and VERY good. A trip to see his cattle is certainly worthwhile.

The Line 1 cattle are distributed widely across the US and, from what I've observed and been told, they do pretty well everywhere....from Debters in the SE to Harrell's in the NW.

Wow!! Thanks again everyone. :D

Line one cattle do seem to work well in a lot of different environments. I think Herefords in general work well in as many different environments as any other breed.

George if you do make it to Colorado again this summer I hope you find time to stop by for another tour. :D
