I really like Absolute but my biggest concern with him is I have felt like he doesn't settle heifers very good. Anyone else had that feeling using him?


Let us know what you decide. I bought Absolute and Bruiser for next year. Not sure yet if I might hold one for the following year? I have far fewer than you do.

Bred all the fall calvers and replacements to bruiser again. I looked around for other sires to try but his calves have been impressive so far and none of the other sire's epds seemed as well rounded..

Anyone have any yearling pictures of Bruiser calves? Seems like he could be a pretty good outcross to make UBs.

I believe I took these picks back in Dec of a couple commercial replacements that I'm keeping sired by Bruiser. I have several fall calves by him too. I've been pretty pleased with him and will probably use him again this spring.

So are those four months old in the pictures or is my math wrong? Either way those are thick calves. I'm buying a Gamechanger bull next month and was thinking of using bruiser on the heifers.

No these were from last spring, so they'd be around 9-10 mos old in the pics

I have a GC heifer that calves last fall ill try out bruiser on her before my whole crop out of the bull I'm getting next month. I do like how those calves look though.

Checking the cattle and thought I'd add a few calf pics of Bruiser calves from this fall. All were born in early October.
Image
Thick little bull calf that I left intact. He has been the king of the calves and I may use him if he develops well. I really like his mother.

Image
Another bull calf that I left intact. I don't like him as much as the last, but I'll see how he looks at weaning before deciding to cut him or not.

Image
Heifer calf

Heifer calf.
I had a total of 15 Bruiser calves this fall; 6 bulls and 9 heifers.
