Young Angus bulls

Postby Ky hills » Thu May 18, 2017 12:03 pm

These are some home raised AI sired yearling Angus bulls, that I have had out with heifers for a few weeks.

Just a small number of cows, Angus, and BWF, I like a little bit of Brahman influence. The cows that I have that have a small amount of ear breeding in them, seem to milk well, and raise good sized calves. I have thought about AI'ing some to Brangus or Beefmaster, but have just been using bulls the last 2 years.

:shock: You just just broke two of the CT cardinal rules... using cattle with ear in the north and a crossbred bull. You are officially blacklisted. Prepare for the 100 Question War with the Angus Mafia. :hide:

Thanks for the warning. We don't consider ourselves as being in the north though, maybe my rebellious side coming through with posting that picture :lol2:

Please accept my deepest apology, I meant no offense. :tiphat: I meant north of the Brahman line... not the Mason-Dixon.

No offense taken. Years ago there were several herds of Santa Gertrudis, and Beefmasters around and a few commercial herds that ran Brahman bulls. In more recent times not as much.

That's because the Angus Mafia pushed them out.

What do you like about those Angus bulls. That one in the first pic looks pretty stout in the front.

The main thing that I like about them are that I didn't have to buy them, and they qualify as heifer bulls. I think the first bull is fairly stout. The second bull is long but I do fault him with having a topline that drops down behind his shoulders.

First impression: Looks like a calving ease bull that is going to sire a lot of milk.

I am not intending to disagree with the assessment of this bull, the daughters may very well be hard keepers, but his dam is one of my most dependable cows. She is one of our smaller framed cows, and stays in good condition, while consistently raising calves. This is a picture of her as a heifer in fall of 2012,
