I like her. I have had a few like her great mothers. I hope she is bred. Her and MG should make a nice calf. I would watch her after she calves might get a bit hot. Shame someone wasted several productive years. Have a vet shove his had up her butt make sure she is good.

Nice looking cow.
I'd get her pregged, if open a few years she may need a shot of gnhr.
A five year old that has never calved is worth exactly kill price, a little more if bred.
Good luck

I like the grey coloring.


That kind of shows your knowledge of Brahman cattle. Not surprising though, most people with big opinions on pit bulls can't pick one out of a line up either.

Never claimed to know them and unless I find myself in a climate suited to them I have no interest in their ugly azzes.

As for pits, I have two living in my house and have for years. Whatcha wanna know?

Every one knows what you were doing. At least be man enough to own it when some one confronts you.

Oh, this is a confrontation, my goodness, am I supposed to be intimidated or something?

Look here Brute, you raise what you raise and I raise what I raise, I'm happy, I suppose you're happy, maybe you aren't since you're so overly sensitive but that's neither here nor there. You and your minions have educated me to the advantages of the Brahman based breed in your environment and I must admit, were I unfortunate enough to have to live in such climate I'd conform to the norm as well. Luckily that's not the case.

Now carry on young man.

I can't figure out what you did this time TT. Your always stirring the pot. Pretty much hurricanes and Brahman go hand in hand.

Ya, I'm not sure it's exact back ground but it's far from a representation of the modern, American, Brahman breed.

With that said, if it was bought right and throws a calf it may end up a money maker for the OP. I have more than one cow that visually is not that impressive but throws one heck of a calf.

4-5 yr old cow that may or may not be in calf. Hmmm. Don't care the breed. She wasn't worth the diesel it cost you to haul her home. She needs to become hamburger quick. You just got someone else's problem.

Its amazing to read all these post about how she should have done had a calf, most of whom don't know much if any thing about Brahman cattle.
1) Some , not all, Brahman cattle will not breed till 3 yrs. old, but that same cow may have calves till she is 20+ yrs. old. So that 17 yrs. worth of calves.
2)) She has ran with a bull 11 or 12 months, does not sound like he knows for sure just how long she was with a bull. She sure can't have calves if she aint been with a bull. If she is making a bag like he thinks then that's about right. Looking at the picture I think she is bred but couple months out ,just my guess ??
3) ''Yearling bull'' just how old is the bull, was the bull checked, does he even know if the bull is any good ??
4) What about the other cows that was with this bull are they calving ?? if he said I missed it or maybe just give them a free pass their not Brahman.
5) Way to many unknowns for me to say ship the cow, but if you wanted to sell her and was close to me I would be interested.
