there is a month between pics. here is a link to pedigree and date of birth which proves he is 7 mo.

Also , I'm not doubting you on his age ,But you can put down anything for a birthdate when you register a calf. It has been going on for YEARS. been there, seen that ...........

Since you asked, twice, I'll bite. It is hard to tell from a picture, but it depends what you are going to use him for. I think he may make a nice bull to use on some commercial cows. If he is going into the purebred registered market I would like to see some more depth and thickness to his hind quarters, a little more body lenght, and a more youthful look about his head and front end at this age (lack of indicates too early maturity and slow yearling growth). As an overall package he is a good calf. Just my honest opinion.

i dont intend to use him in my herd. as i have said before i am in the early years of breeding with much to learn. he is the best 7 mo bull calf i have had to date so post these pics to get feed back from those with more experiance. i dont post the pics expecting everyone to pat me on the back and say well done. its the things that are not obvious to me that others can point out.

PM KNERSIE with your pics. He seems to be the Hereford king on this board. He will give you a fair assessment and tell it like it is.

save your breath, He won't like cause he did not breed it!

Knersie is fairly good judge of cattle. Don't no if you are or not scroote.

I absolutely agree with you. Still does not change my statement. Easy with the man-crush, others have been hurt here before.
