My Bull hit the Jackpot

Postby Bright Raven » Sat May 27, 2017 7:11 am

The bull with all the Chrome has the Life of Riley. The gentlemen in Tennessee has friended me on Facebook, if it was not a violation of his privacy, I would post a picture.

The guy must have 15 grandchildren. Looks like all GIRLS.

They love the bull. Man said the girls are with him every chance they get.

It is an interesting story. I guess if you had only had all black cattle getting a gentle bull calf with all that white is a novelty. Plus, he is halter broke. The girls want to show him this fall.

It makes you think! First, the Chrome that we thought would hurt the bull the most was his biggest asset. Second, seeing that halter on him, made him more appealing.

The guy said he will be a horse by fall. The girls are feeding him like a pig.

This is one lucky BULL!!!

Brings up a thought! I hope no one gets hurt. Apparently, they show cattle. I don't know the extent of that but all my bulls will push some and they like to play. I had to discipline this bull a few times because he likes attention and he puts his head against you and pushes.

I didn't say anything because these people know cattle so I trust they will be cautious. This calf already was in bull mode. He walked around the bull pen moaning. So the juices are flowing.

A nose ring I can tolerate but I can't stand halters.

Think what you want but that chromed up bull should of been a steer. If you sold this bull registered, you have did nothing but promote the ASA and the Simmental breeders in a negative way. IMO I have a easy question for you Ron, does that bull represent what a Simmental bull should look like in your eyes?

I have wondered why the White is viewed as negative. IDK.

Most commercial producers don't want a lot of scattered white because it gets discounted in feeder sales.

The white doesn't hurt anything and doesn't help anything, quality wise for sure. Someone at some time decided what everything should look like. Take a rainbow for instance, they sure are pretty stretched out across the sky. But on someone's shirt or car they look like crap. IMO

They'll probably pass it off as black Hereford, and get on the county fair circuit this summer. Show that thing to fall, and have semen sold from Memphis to Knoxville.

Grit. The ASA continues to register the older Simmentals. They are 30% or more white. If white is detrimental, that is contradictory to their goal. Do you think there should be a percent white disqualification?

I thought "real" Simmentals were red as their primary base color? What's all this black nonsense?
