Looks pretty good, who is he? How old is he in the pic? Got a registration number? I like to see the numbers. :lol2:
As the description on the bull said, "He will continue to be the best bull in the breed to change large framed, lighter muscled and structurally incorrect cattle. He even outperforms his sire, 6807, in this ability. Anchor daughters are moderate framed, very efficient females with great versatility in any breeding program. They have the ability to improve cow herd efficiency through reduced feed costs while maintaining production. The udder quality of the Anchor daughters is excellent. From a carcass standpoint, Anchor will add muscle and improve marbling and percent retail product. Despite his depth and volume, Anchor exhibits a negative fat EPD."RD-Sam":202vr71l said:Yea, but if you would have paid attention to the bulls EPD to start with, you might have avoided the whole situation. :nod:
Oh man, we have such a hodge podge of genetics in our Angus herd right now. We used OCC Magnitude on a couple cows last year, got some really thick (for angus) heifers out of him, about a frame size 5 or so which was a little on the small size (we like 5.5-6). We also used Dr. J Analyst but he's positive for AM and Hydro, so I don't know what will come of those calves, which is a shame because they're looking decent. We've used EXT and Northern Improvement also.RD-Sam":1crm20en said:What has been working for you? That is what I am trying to produce, moderate framed females that are efficient.
