Picked her up bred and she calved two weeks later. Other then that don’t know much about her or the Sire. Just thought maybe we’d get lucky. Pics don’t really do him justice but i do believe when we do need a herd bull we will bring one in that’s proven. Again, thanks for replying I appreciate the honesty.

You cull a lot harder than most,,some of those culled out,would probably do a good job in someone's commercial herd....just from where I stand,Jeanne - Simme Valley":3tz7zesp said:Yes, by far, this is not a poor steer.
