How big is big enough when it comes to Ribeye Area? I have heard that there is a push in some circles to moderate the REA because serving portion sizes were getting too large. Has anyone else heard this? I know that the powers that be among Hereford folks are still pushing for more ribeye size, but even among Herefords, I have read of 17 inches or more in yearling bulls, one of them being Triple L C&L Custom 100K, sired by Bar JZ Tradition 434V. His WW 745, YW 1213, REA/CWT 1.4. I can certainly see that on a cow herd with small ribeyes, you could put a bull with excessive ribeye to even out the calves somewhere in the middle. Ollie, last I checked, you were the only other registered user out there, what do you think? Cert, Txag, Frankie, and all the others will be along after a while!
