Why not post some pictures that give the bull half a chance.

About the sheath; at that angle you can hardly tell if there is a problem. The numbers on the bull aren't bad, epd's woulda helped.

His legs look funny but that most likely is the picture and the way he is standing.

Just another Xbred bull. Not to good of a picture. Sure don"t look like he has been on test to me.


Forgetting all the other silly crap going on with this thread , why would you say he's crossbred.

It's kind of funny. Seeing as how you have him posted on your website as being one of your bulls:

http://www.claibornefarms.net/prod01.htm

Just goes to prove my point. You really can't hide stupid.
Just throwing this out, maybe he sold the bull to a friend :???: ?

maybe

The bull certainly has an identity crisis, or maybe its the owner. Why would the gelbvieh bull rate as high on the Saler indeces?

I guess it is hard to tell a Gelbvieh from a Saler when they are both black. :banana:

Cowman,

I believe you just made a fatal error. :lol: :lol:

He is Black 3way i don't think Gelbvieh comes with a black hide unless you cross breed them. Kinda like black Limis, Sims, and Salers. They only get the black wraping when Xbred.

As far as I'm concerned there ain't nothing good about black continentals of any breed. You got all that Angus blood in them why not go Angus.
Why in the heck would anybody put a 85 pound birth weight with heifers. Breed them to 70 pound and let the heifer calve easy and get down to motherhood.

He looks like a fairly good bull to me. It looks like the picture taking is what sucks. He appears to have fairly good depth and length about him. His top line is pretty level and he looks smooth shouldered like his calves would come easy. I wonder what his epd's are? I think if he was standing on flat ground and not on rocky land then he might look pretty good.

You deleted your post that said you didn't know Tim had a website. So you and Cowman must be the same person..........I think you have screwed up again.....I knew it was just a matter of time.
