Red Angus

Postby Kenlofarms » Wed Feb 28, 2018 12:20 pm

I am looking to hear input on what Red Angus bulls are being used for AI this year on heifers.

We are going with Redemption to work on building our female base.

We like the Genex tech in our area or I would do some Spartacus. Genex have a Spartacus son, Gladiator I thought about using if he has any in his tank.

We have a Pie Cinch calve due next week. We bred a few to him, but had bad luck and only one stuck.

If you want to add some size Deep End looks good. Are you going to use him on heifers

On Red Angus it seems that there is a limited selection on larger framed bulls. Am I correct or am I overlooking a few good AI bulls out there?

Red Angus assoc. doesn't give any info on frame size making it difficult to focus on adding it.

Should add more frame than the vast majority of Red Angus sires.

Tennessee Tuxedo , where are you located. I am in west Tennessee. I have two herd bulls right now. One is a 5.9 frame and the other is a 5.8. Both are great animals. I have also recently began a cross breeding program of Red Angus cattle with a Hereford bull for red baldies.

6.7 frame, we are using him on our Red SimAngus heifers this year. Our cattle are just to small for these feedlots going up around me.

Mine is Shady's Mulberry B306, Reg Number 1747394 born 12-4-2014.

Most of the heifers have Red Six Mile in their pedigree.
