I was going to be critical of the bulls depth (because as you know it's a deal breaker for me) but then I saw the calves. 2 is a fantastic little calf, closely followed by 1. Now I don't want to ignite another argument but see how these guys look like bulls? But again I'm talking from an Australian stud perspective, that's how my eye is trained so that's how I see. But 3way I'd be keeping a close eye on those calves. You can already see the potential in 2 easily. 1 will get there. What are you going to do with them?

I agree with you that they look MORE BULLY than the balancer calf I posted. However I will point out again you are comparing apples to oranges. the calf I posted was 5 months old when I posted the first pictures. These calves are 10 months old, and yes they are very nice calves. Including #3 he just looks a little different here because of the way he is standing.

Like I said they belong to my friend and he is sending them to test for a seedstock sale. For the record I usually consider this bull more of a cow maker, but I really like these bull calves.

Mmm fair enough. If you can get some nice bulls out of a cow maker then you know what they're going to do.
