Who is a train wreck when bred to train wreck cows, if your cows are commercial type you can get some decent steers no show stoppers but a decent steer, the heifers will make good cows. Breed him to clubby cows and you are in a crap shoot.
Just out of curiosity want is the breeding on your heifer?

Yes, she is an angus/polled hertfurd cross. her mom was a black baldie and the sire would have been purebred angus. She is also a black baldie.
The reason Who made Who is the bull that i want to use is because 1. my vet highly recommends him and 2. i have heard great things about his calves.
and how is he a trainwreck?

He also had younger and older siblings who showed. He knows a lot about the showring and has actually given me some really good showmanship tips before.
all of the chi's i have met have been wild and temperamental! Our vet actually hates heat wave and sun seeker calves and has met he wave clones 5 and 6. He said the only club bull he would ever consider using was who made who and he actually recomended him. I want to stay away from chi and yes, who made who has 1/4th chi, but that is better than heat wave and sun seeker. One part of it is even the lines of heat wave and sun seeker are wild.. Its not just the chi...
another part about the chi and heat wave and all those, they are very moody and easily spooked. At least the calves that i have met.
I am definitely sticking with Who made Who.
maybe the chi's over in australia are tamer than the ones in the US???
Just a thought...
