He's a good looking Hereford bull calf.

How do you plan to breed him?

Thanks. If he grows out well and passes a BSE, he will likely be put with our small group of registered Hereford cows.

Still young. Hard to make a fair evaluation at this time. But overall a nice calf that is a good prospect.

Not a bad looking calf. I hope he does well for you.

Where in Virginia is he from? What part of the state (if you don't care to mention the breeder)?

Thanks y'all.
Workinonit Farms, I don't personally know the breeder, but the farm name was listed in the catalogue so I don't mind to mention it, GBW Herefords, from Fincastle Virginia

I don't know them personally but do know a lot of the breeders in Virginia and they raise good Herefords. A lot of our cattle are Virginia bred. Received a catalog, so if you don't mind my asking what lot # was he. He looks good.

Thanks, he was lot 26. There ended up only being 3 bulls sold in the sale, he and the 2 older bulls, the others were out of the sale.

Looks good. Like the pedigree, especially on the sire's side. Always liked the Loewan cows. They seemed to milk heavy.

Let us know how he grows and matures. At that age it's hard to tell how he may look even a few months from now but he looks like a nice prospect. I like a lot of the bulls on the top side of his pedigree and the more I dig back further in his dam's pedigree I found KCF Victor X4 who is a bull we used AI a bit a long time ago and liked the calves we got out of him.
