I still don’t like him, not trying to be hard to get along with he just doesn’t impress me.

I don't care for him either, but most of the GAR bulls aren't apealing to me.

My select sire guy was pushing him very hard on me, after seeing that picture of his dam. No way I would use him. Maybe she is just young, but I have commercial cows that are built way better than her.

I'll post a few pictures of some of Sure Fire calves in a couple of days. One is a stud and as good as they come.

Thanks TG, would be helpful to see. Quite a few of the SS bulls that I like the looks of (in the new catalog) have low marbling and/or relatively low DOC. Or have genetics pretty close to what we already have a lot of....Or are professed to "moderate" the size--we started out with moderate and don't want to end up with mini :)

I have a good friend that flushed a cow to Sure Fire last year and he thinks there's 7 calves on the ground from him. This guy is a SS rep so I'll send him your post and see what he thinks.

SS has a new lineup of bulls, because they purchased Accelerated Genetics.
Gizmom - I totally agree with the style of bull you liked!!!! May have more shoulder than what I like, but has all the guts & butts.
