Hybrid cross bred composite bull picture

Postby OzssieDave19 » Fri Jun 01, 2018 6:18 pm

Hi gang, I am back on after logging out and not being able to retrieve my password. So I have often shown interest in cross bred bulls. My old neighbour liked to keep a bull for ai mop ups. He ran char bulls on traditional SIM x hard cows. I was back home working recently and snapped a pic of one of his bulls. What do you think?

Your definition of composite and mine are different. The composite bulls I think of will breed true with predictable EPDs.
The bull pictured no telling what will fall out of the DNA crayon box on a set cows.

Thanks Tennessee Tuxedo. Caustic Burno, that was an attention grabbing headline! It's a cross bred bull in my book. I like the bull and tend to think as a calf getter putting beef on the ground something will happen, would I retain his daughters? No.

I would retain his daughters if I liked them. That bull could make great steers and great cows. Only one way to find out.

I really like the way he looks. Wouldn't mind a crop of calves from him. With Simm in his breeding he has potential of producing some milk in daughters. But I'm sure his calves would grow into a bigger frame animals, so that's not for everybody's taste.
