They look really good Brian, seems like you don't see too many P606 sons that make a name for themselves, but he sure has some good daughters out there. Who sired 956 calf.

956 looks really promising, just don't show the right side of his face otherwise some self proclaimed experts will call him just another crossbred. ;-)

It just goes to show that your real bull prospects shows masculinity, muscle and capacity even at a tender 3 months of age.

952 looked more promising at 7 weeks than he does at 3 months, probably just in that ugly phase most calves go through around 4 months old.

Thanks. I am looking forward to seeing them grow out. The P606 daughters have been good, but I think from the bull side many had too much birthweight as he was bred to many high birthweight cows because of his original epds were so low. Also many had horns or scurs. So far this calf is smooth polled.

I did this flush on a 12 year old JPH prestige daughter and then left it sit in the tank for a couple years before I put it in.

Knersie, I wont argue that I like the 956 calf best now as her calves and the M326 calves seem to get better with age, but if the P606 calf can continue to grow and known the history of his mothers calves, he may have a future in my herd as longevity is pretty important for me.
