We raised him and used him as a yearling before Select took him to stud. He will throw smaller calves, and ours at least, grew out nicely. His scrotal measurements weren't what I like to see in his sons and his dam is an average type cow. So we never went back and used him again, but if you want calving ease, he does that very well.

Thanks,
Bryan

Here is a bull I am very excited about. We raised this guy and have 1 set of calves out of so far. They look very nice at this age. He is a coming 3 year old now (He was 15 months old in this photo). Over the winter we just feed the herd bulls grass hay, salt & mineral. He came through the winter in the best condition of all the bulls and this is through a little harder time for bulls his age. The pour-on didn't work that great this past fall and some of the bulls had patchy hair but not him. I don't know if that means much but it was a bit obvious to me. His dam is one of the best cows we have ever owned and his pedigree is one that I really like. After calving out his first offspring, I am convinced that he will work on heifers and am sure his BW EPD will go negative. Since we don't need another heifer bull, he will go back on cows again this year. (starting next week.) He has super feet and legs on him and has good depth of rib and muscle shape while having above average length. Check him out. I believe his daughters will be some of our best.
