Sure enuf a Gelbvieh, and I see he is already practicing for his future career.

Nice calf HD, hard to fault him so I won't.

I really like him too, and his is getting long and tall. That is Outside Apple Blossom a Holstein heifer and she is tall, so you can see how much he has grown.

I am just worried about the flank right now I hope it keeps up with the rest of him. That seems to be an occurrence this year and last and I am not the only GV breeder that is having that problem with the bulls.. :?

My other's look a lot like this guy but do not stand out like him.

he will bloom out nicely when you put him on feed.i like pasture raised bulls.they wont fall apart when they are running with the cows.

Sorry baldie maker I just saw this question he is sired by Kalina Moderator.
here's a pic


As far as frame score I don't know, right now I am hoping that he doesn't get too big.

both, i dont have the papers on them, just use them as terminal sires on a cross bred cow herd. they seem to do the trick. also use chars and limi. like them both as well
