I'm thinking of using him. For those who receive the Red Angus Mag. there is a mature pic of him in last months page 53. His EPDs are fine with me (his birth is a little lower than I normally use) so I'm just wondering what others thought of his phenotype and any flaws I might be missing.

I think they both are awesome. But, take this with a grain of salt... as I am NO expert. I only know what I like to see and what I don't.

And I like!

A link to the Semen company's kisting on the bull would be very helpful.

I do like him and his Momma

Well, you didn't mention what you'd use him for but I like him and his dam too. How long does one animal continue to strongly influence a pedigree? This bull's daughters would be C.C. great-granddaughters. I've heard lots already about his daughters having narrow pelvises. What about his granddaughters and great granddaughters? Isn't that a pretty good distance back?

I don;t know how far back it may influence but his sires CEM is -3. You can;t fix that in one generation

Dun, has Cherokee Canyon proved to sire small pelvic openings or is it still all "in theory"?

Of his daughters that I'm familiar with, that's only a couple of dozen, they have all turned out to be flops as calvers as heifers. Don;t know of any that have calved a second time.

The odds are against you but it doesn't mean it can't happen, just look at Cheyenne. I sure like his Phenotype and his dam. Does anyone know of some other Red Angus bulls of similar type. I sure don't mind using a different bull.
