Would you mind giving me some pointers on faults you see in this bull? Also may be you can give a quick evaluation on one of my Home Town bull calves, “Bar RC Home Town”.
Thanks for the encouraging words. I just had a new bull calf I want to keep an eye on - Born 9-6-21PBAngus,
I'm estimating here but 672 lbs at 198 days would get you a 205 adjusted weight of around 693 lbs. Just curious about the weaning weight ratio as compared to the dam's weight, just something that I like to track.
His numbers look really good with all of the $ value indexes in the top 35% of the breed.
Good WW and YW growth numbers, good Marb and REA with a minus back fat number...excellent! I would say that you have every reason to be happy with him. Please post more pictures of him as he grows.
SAV Resource does make really nice replacements they are slower maturing for sure I’ve done severalI have a couple of upcoming daughters of this guy
Haven't used him yet, but I like a few weaning age daughters I have seen
A couple daughters (just 2 year olds now) are doing a nice job
Have a few heifer calves on the ground showing some promise by this old guy
Have bred cows for the second year to this grandson of Substantial and I like the heifer and bull calves a lot
And finally after a test run last year, I am looking forward to the daughters of this bull dropping calves in a couple years -- will be watching feet on them
Several of these are pretty young bulls, so I am proceeding with caution on them. I make a few mistakes as I go, but we can always eat the mistakes.
Quite a few of my current best cows are sired by a home-raised son of BC Lookout 6024. His mother was a granddaughter of EXT. That doesn't help much on looking for current AI sires, but they are rising to the top as they hit their prime even if they have a few faults. Also Redland Emblazon 2134 is the sire of some other top cows here. Unfortunately, 2134, like some other sires aren't available as AI sires by the time we figure out how good they were.
Another bull I like for a maternal AI sire is KCF Bennett Absolute. http://bullbarn.com/angblkepd.asp?ID=2379 He is a little more proven and I like the Wulffs EXT 6106 on the maternal side.
SAV Resource is one I resisted using for several years, but a couple of 2-year olds are showing promise this year.
Hoover Dam is still available and has been a strong maternal sire.
We had one bulling pulled her up palpated and found a calf….I know sounds crazy but a fact, I was so disappointed when told about it because had just had a customer pick her out to purchase next day they caught her standing so since we had palpated her safe early on did the recheck fully expecting to find she had slipped the calf. Needless to say was pretty darn tickled to find a baby in her.Caught one of my 2 Resource daughters bulling the other day. Looks like she is a one and done cow. Raised a nice calf, but doesn't make up for missing breeding season.
