He is the most difficult bull to take pictures of he is so tame that he follows you around and you cant ever get a side view unless you chase him away from you. He isnt agressive by any means he's just curious. i know someone is gonna tell me to be carefull around him and dont pet him.... I KNOW not to sound cocky but "this Aint my first Rodeo"

I wish i had one he is pretty scraggely right now from getting freeze branded and ultrasounded, in a few weeks he should be slicked down and i will get a few then.
This is his Sire

Numbers are very good. Did you buy him thru a sale or private treaty?
I bought him from the Willis family down at Marietta through Private Treaty. I went down with a truck load of guys and we all were looking for something different.

I would assume that with the low accuracies he is a yearling bull?
He is still a yearling and i dont think he bred any cows at his previous owners farm he is already breeding for us. Dumped him on at the Vet to get tested on friday morning and was breeding cows before sundown.

Looks good. Good feet & legs, super clean throated for a Simmental. Calves really look good. Are they by a PB Simmental also?
Calves are PB Angus. New daddy will give us some half bloods.

Actually they would be more than 50 % Angus depending on how much Angus is in your new bull.

He is black so he can't be 100% Simmental. So that means he has to be a % of something else ( assumed Angus ) that made him black.

100% Simmental are gold and white or red and white not black.

He's just trying to get your goat, anyone whose breed hasn't seen the light ;-) Like to make fun of all the breeds that have.

The black Mains, Simis and Chi still have their breed characteristics just not the color, sure makes it easy to get a Continental and Angus cross that looks uniform doesn’t it.

So are you saying all breeds should be black?

So the the other breeds went black to be uniform?
