Justa Banner and Vindicator are still relevant IMO. You can still get Vindicator from Jim Reed, who said it was the best bargain for what you were getting in his catalog when I talked to him a few years ago.

I am sure if you know the prefix you'll find him on Reed's. I am just as curious to see what he looked like.

were there two Driver bulls. I dont think the herf assoc. has it right.

I looked up bt prl driver and got one polled and one horned both the same bull I think. Born the same day and have the same herd id. Tell me that isn't messed up.

I'm not sure that this is him but which ever bull it was that was the "original" driver was partnered with Bear Tooth and Ponderosa. The story goes that there were 18 or 20 of these pregnant recips that were partnership. They drew lots for the recip numbers to split the pregnancies up and half of them were going to Ponderosa in Canada. They held them up at the border because one of the bulls on the sire side hadn't been blue tongued. After a week or two they sent them back to Bear Tooth and Driver was one of those calves. They split them and sold Driver for a million...or so the story goes.

You all like the driver bull? i haven't seen his pic but based on his epds wouldn't he ruin a cow herd? What is his birth weight? That's the worst calving ease epd i think i've ever seen. sorry if i'm showing my ignorance.

I dont think people like him to much. I was just interested in the pedigree to see were the big Birth weight came from.
