I am located in Alberta Canada. He had said he was the most complete bull he had seen in a long time(in person), and felt he was under utilized at this point but thinks he will preform really well.

Check out Shady Brook Angus sale book, might want to watch their sale online. Still early, so only going to see young calves. Use google and AAA to get as much info possible on him. Also see if your rep that recommended him can find out more info. I

I learned a hard lesson listening to reps a several years ago I learned that he and I liked to totally different types on cattle. I have yet to use a bull since that I have not seen his calves from or really trust someone’s opinion that has seen/uses him. My rep cost me

Paintedsky,
I don't blame you. He looks really nice to me.
Have you seen Fortress that Select Sires has?
I was looking through the Angus Journal...I think it was Feb. edition and saw some really nice calves out of him
at some sale...apologize that I don't remember which one...but he does have really high milk so you would have to be careful.
I saw that KC sold the bull at their sale and then bought him back after seeing how nice his calves were.
Hope this is the right link.
