The pictures were taken last week, a few days over a year old. Registered Brangus and will be covering commercial Sim-angus cows. He has been on feed and will be delivered next week after all yearling data is gathered.
I hope I didn't do too bad.

He's a Hoss, especially to just be a yearlIng. I would think that cross would make for some nice calves.

I like him. A lot. I know some folks are going to bash him for his sheath, but it's hard to get around that and keep the Brahman influence, which he certainly shows (and that's a good thing). Other than being a little more likely to get hurt I wouldn't worry about it.

Are you going to keep feeding him since he's still pretty young?

Rafter S- I plan to keep him on the 13% grower @ 10% of his weight until late December, early January. Then he'll go in with 12-14 cows for 60 days. He'll go back on the same setup until mid summer.

ALACOWMAN- The breeder is Addison Brangus Farms, in Winfield, Alabama. Wayne is a friend of mine and a super fellow. He currently has 3-4 more bulls for sale private treaty, along with a group at Salacoa Valley to be at the sale this fall and another group that will sell in The Oaks sale this fall.

I plan to buy a purebred Simmental at the fall Gibbs farm sale this year to start the 2nd leg of a 3-way cross program. I'll be adding a purebred Angus in a few more years.

Thank you all for the compliments, I'm pretty excited about him.

Sounds like a good plan. Be sure to post pictures of some of his calves. They should be some good ones.

I have been wanting to add brangus blood into my simangus herd for a couple of years. I couldn't figure a way to crossbreed and maintain uniformity in retained heifers. I came upon J. Davis Cattle from SC and they had a clear 3-way cross breeding plan on their site, coincidentally using the 3 breeds I am interested in. Should produce some heat tolerant sim-angus cows.

I don't like anything with brahma in it. But even I have to admit he is impressive.
