I sure ain't gonna make any excuses, he does look kinda funky in the pictures. Here's the other picture I took.

Taking pictures of cows, calves and bulls is not easy. I took one of a bull a couple of weeks ago and posted it on face book. A good friend called me about an hour after and said haven't I taught you better than to post photos of your stock out of position.....well yes but sometimes it is just hard to get them at the right minute. The Rainmaker bull is better than he looks in the photo, at least I think he is.

This is a photo of his flush brother. C37 has been working pretty dang hard since he was a yearling. We sold 1/2 interest in him as a yearling. We used him last year on 42 head of heifers, loaded him up and hauled him the end of March 1/2 way to our partners. Scott met us in Montgomery and hauled him to his place to go to work in a Spring calving herd. Scott finished with him we got him back in November and he has been out on cows since January 1st. So he has worked pretty hard for a young bull. The calves we have on the ground out of him are deep and thick and have plenty of growth. He is covering our two and three year old group this year so has 44 head to cover for us this year. I know he bred for or five over the weekend.

The CC&7 bull that Grit has we are using his maternal brother on our heifers this year. He was at the Florida bull test and did really well but I wanted to use him so we brought him home. He has been sold but will not be delivered until after March 1st. The dam just had her third calf a heifer out of Charlo. Both of the bulls TG got should be the kind to keep females out of.

Yes. I like him TG. He looks about like I figured he would.

I like the 2nd bull a LOT more than the first.
The key to buying a good bull is buy from a REPUTABLE breeder. A good breeder will not leave a poor bull intact, he will be a great steer instead.

Grit you gotta tickle his belly so he will stand up straight and not look like an old man leant up on the parts counter .

I think you know my answer to that. I do need a sound recording of those two Angus and my SimAngus bull cussing one another. That would be a classic ring tone for my phone.

At the dairy farm I work on we used to have a Holstein bull that would go on like that every time he seen me! (We didn't get along very well)

I got along with this bull well.. mutual respect... And seemed to know that working with me was good for him.. Like here, where I was leading him to the girls, and he had lots to say about that
