Best new Angus bull this year?

Postby Air gator » Wed Jul 26, 2017 8:16 pm

Who is the best new Angus bull to enter stud this year? If going by price it would be Sav President 6847 and his flushmates. They are by Coleman Charlo 0256 and Sav Blackcap May 4136. Rainfall, Raindance, and Governor. They sold for $750,000, $460,000, $450,000, and $435,000. Charlo seems to be one bull that really got a good bounce from the Single Step epd changes. I think he had a HP epd of -4.6 before the change and is now listed as +10.5. Every other bull's HP epd went down.

If you believe in EPDs it wont be any of that flush. Single step hammered most of the SAV cattle on $B. The flush brothers have pretty plain EPDs for AI stud bulls. Nothing to drive people to the bulls other than selling price and the SAV name. That will certainly sell semen on them just not enough for them to be the "hot" bull. As far as HP Charlo's HP moved to breed average or there abouts. Lots of bulls went up on HP including most of the AI bulls we used this winter.

I am not smart enough to know who the next hot bull is..

Been around a little while but KCF Fortress and SS Niagara I am using. Like the epd package, phenotype of bulls and their calves. Really liked what I have seen in both.

I'm not a numbers player, will try a little Raindance from ST. A up and coming last year bull you will be hearing about if your a numbers player is Jindra Acclaim.

I don't look for the highest growth epds. I actually think twice about a bull if his growth seems extreme. I do try to be aware of milk and epds related to train wrecks so I can avoid them.
Here's a bull that I really like...Connealy Legendary. Although, he doesn't look like a calving ease bull to me.

Legendary looks to be a honest rib eye sire.
Kind of reminds me a little bit of that smooth look TEN X had as a young sire with a better butt.

I don't understand how a 1 doc sire used on a daughter of a 6 doc sire should be expected to produce a 14 doc son
and when the accuracy of that 14 doc son is so low I'd expect more caution

Same with his calving ease, I expect him to be closer to breed average than calving ease when he hits .70 accuracy

I don't know that they're the best but I'm excited to see how these two shake out over the next year or two.

Jscunn,
I honestly didn't see any other bull with a HP edp that went up. It seems like most milk epds went down.

Cowboy,
Stgenetics has done a great job of selecting bulls. I wish I had enough land and enough cows to try a bunch of them.

This is another bull I really like...Connealy Century.
He is from the same cow family as Connealy Countdown but has more muscle and eye appeal.

Hard for me to say "Best" this year because they aren't proven yet, but I'm pretty excited about Magnitude. His EPD profile is pretty spectacular

I wouldn't trust the CED epd. Southside started out with +11 and is now a +4.
I know that Connealy is using The Rock 17849954. You may like him, too.

Air Gator,
Sorry I didnt see your question right away.
Sydgen Black Pearl, Sydgen Rock Star, and Sydgen Wake up Call all went up on HP.

JMB Traction went way down on milk, from 50 something to 30 something.. :shock:

With all due respect, that bull should have never been left intact. He looks about as poor as his sire.
