I have been told by several people that a young bull will throw a smaller calf. These people that told me that use young Simmental and Charolais bulls and dont have calving problems. I dont believe this because I think that the bull's genetics would determine the calve size. What is yall's opinion?

People will tell you a lot of things. Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?

The tehnical term for this is BS. What do they think, that the sperm cells are smaller? But if a cow is facing north when she's bred she'll have a bull calf, facing south a heifer!

What kind of Calf will the Cow have if she is facing East or West?
I have heard that it could be a Bull or Heifer. Depends on which way the wind is blowing.

the main reason that they use young bulls on heifers is because they are lighter and less likely break a heifer down. a mature bull that is heavy is more risky. age has nothing to do with birth weight.

a younger bull maybe will be more vigorous and will be more fertile than the old bull but to have smaller calves :lol: :lol: :lol: don't think so
