Brahman Bull Questions

Postby Brute 23 » Thu May 25, 2017 11:13 am

I'm looking at a Brahman Bull right now. If any one has time to answer some EPD and lineage questions for me I would appreciate it. Just PM me and I can send the info I have.

Thanks

Here he is. There are things I like... things I don't but over all I think he will do a good job of getting us to the next step.

I was really surprised at how many bulls I looked at that people really hyped up but I was not impressed with. The one thing about this bull, other than being easy going, that I really liked is he carries himself very well. He has good balance and is some what light on his feet. I guess they consider him moderate framed. A lot of the big bulls I looked at would not hold up long term IMO. I will definitely be shaking the bushes before my next purchase to find some moderate sized, hard working bulls. Not the monsters every one is pushing.

Im almost more excited to get him across some of our commercial cattle more than the Brimmers. We have some black cattle and some hereford cattle with just a 1/4 Brimmer or so in them. ;-)

There's a lot of meat in those hindquarters.

Nice! Congratulations.

He looks like the Cuatro Didor bull we used a while back. Did the same thing you did and got the most moderate sized bull we could find.

That is a nice bull JWB. Ill have to remember that name so I know what to look for.

This bull's parents are both polled... or so they say :). Guess we will find out. His grand-dad is an Ambassador bull.

Ambassador 400/4 is a good polled bull.

Here is the web page for our old bull, he looks just like yours.

You right, they have a similar build. Your's is cleaner and it looks like he has a little more length. I will definitely keep him in mind on the next go round.
