Does Sub-Zero have any daughters in production?

I have some right answer daughters that are very nice. They are a little smaller than I like, but raise a tank of a calf every year, breed back well, and hold condition well. Have to be careful not to get them too fat. They have been milking a calf since mid January and still look great. Very little feed, and grass has been absoulty horrible this spring. I have some chisum daughters that will go into production next year. Sure excited about them. Bred a bunch of cows too Reknown a couple weeks ago in hopes to get some awesome heifers

I was probably answering the wrong question.

I'm sure he does have daughters in production - but not at my place. Just like what I see of the heifers (and bulls) of the calves I've had out of him. So - I was answering the wrong question. Sorry.

Angus9259,
No worries. Glad to hear some news on Sub-Zero. Any other bulls you like?

SAV Thunderbird is worth considering. I used him 3 years running on my heifers and had no problems yet they grow like weeds. The Thunderbird bulls sell themselves, always get a few bids at the sale. He is a Final Answer son.

EXT II is at ABS (I believe) and Final Answer II at Genex; both are clones.

Thank you all for the feedback
I am surprised that no one mentioned Summit from Select Sires. He looks the part...but his $B number isn't great. (EDITED...I wrote is great when it actually isn't).

Tbrake,
Curious as to why you chose Renown over Resource? I like Chisum myself but haven't used him. Do Right Answer females get fat too easy? I'm assuming they are tough to get bred is they are too fat?

BSE,
I think I have the nicest Angus heifer I have ever had out of OCC Juneau and a Leachman Right Time cow (Coleman Blackbird 256).

wbvs58,
Whenever I look at the catalog I wonder who is better....Thunderbird or Platinum.

Baldie,
I am uncomfortable with the idea of using a clone for purebred cattle. That's just me.

Are there any Hoover Dam sons that are making a mark?

I suspect there will come a time animal rights activist types will create quite a stink over cloned animals showing up anywhere in the food chain.

Or, cloning technology will become substantially less expensive and will become so very accepted that it will almost be commonplace.

Check out SS Niagara at Select Sires. I bred some of my cows to him.

I chose reknown because what I read on here. Several people bragging on the extra thickness on reknown. I have no personal experience with either bull. Hope I don't regret it. Chisum is awesome. Hope I don't regret not breeding to him this year. Right answer cows gain wait very easily. I will post some pictures of them here when I can figure it out. I had 3 of them in a group of older cows I aied month ago, don't think any of them took. Put heat patches back on them and looks as if bull took care of them

Pictures did not turn out very well. The cows are right answers, going on 3 year olds. Raising a dandy calf. How do they look? Little shallow in the front to my eye, but other than that I like them. Calves are all chisums. Saved an exact brother to the bull calf last year. He is a tank, just turned him out with his first cows this week. Can't tell much now, but I'm excited to see how these chisum heifers turn out
