Who is the sire of those 2 calves?

Our bull...he really isn't much anymore as he is getting up in years (10 yrs old) but he still gets the job done...

do you select for grays? is the bull black or gray? do you get a lot of rattails?

What breed or cross is the bull looks Angus x Hereford

He is a Simmental. not a cross

No we don't select for greys...he is black...very dark....we have only had 1 rattail...and that was from a previous bull, not this one

well...I'm only 15 yrs old so I haven't really had time to say if they "last" a long time....this particular cow is from a simmbrah dam and a full blood simm sire - just got the news that we have another bull calf...I'll be sure to get pics tomorrow
