I would like to have some Hereford semen as well if he looks like that.
dawnrogerl":zbb82hlf said:As for the cow. I did not think to tell you that the picture is an old one of her that I got from AAA. She is now 7 years old. weights 1790 lbs. exstreamily deep and large rump. Her EPDs are CED +10, BW +1.0, RE .16. She has prodigy ratios of WW 4@101 and YW 4@108. As for her being a daughter of 1680, we are keeping a close watch on that. There is a lot of different thoughts on that matter. Yes we will have her tested to see if she is a carrier. AAA is saying, at this time that the carriers seam to be double bred 1680, which she is not. I also read something interesting the other day on that subject. 1680 was one of the heaviest used bulls in Angus history because of his carcass scores. This writer said that if you used any bull, A, B or Z as heavy as they did 1680 you would have genetic defects with that bull. He went on, as how many fantastic sires or daughters came from 1680. Good food for thought.
