Bought a Horned Hereford bull yesterday. His dam is direct from Holden's so she is straight L1. He has some L1 and some polled breeding on the sire side. In 2 years I will be able to say how I did. He was used last year as a clean up bull after AI and they retained a semen interest. So not as big as some his age but I felt he was worth taking a chance on. Hopefully he will produce some good black baldies. He covers the bases overall. His actual BW was 85 lb which is about what I look for on a bull to use on mature cows. His BW EPD is 4.9 which scares many but I don't pay much attention to what is on paper so it didn't bother me. Bought him online so no pics. Did look at him in person before the sale.

On the bottom mine is HH Advance and CL 1 Domino breeding. The HH Advance is Holdens and the CL 1 Domino is the Coopers. They are related and their cattle all go back to L1 cattle from the station.
