Here is two we raised, both AI sired (and for sale).
This first bull is sired by Upgrade, and just turned a year old a few days ago. At just a year old, he weighed 1330 (today) and had a birth weight of 80 pounds. He is in the top 4% of the breed for weaning weight and ADG, and top 3% for yearling (you can see why). He comes from one of our top females, who is currently 8 years old and still cranking out a great one every year. These pictures were taken today after we bathed and poured both of our bulls.

Here is a link to his EPD's and pedigree: https://herdbook.org/simmapp/action/ani ... er=3099341

The other bull is an HPF Optimizer 3/4 blood bull, only a June and weighed 1005, and had a birth weight of 82 pounds. His dam is an Upgrade 3/4 blood female that does a great job every year. We plan on showing him until he is sold. He is in the top for weaning and yearling also.

And because people wonder, we develop our bulls on pasture, with about 1.5% of bodyweight in a bull ration made by our mill to supplement. They are not fat!

Looks like 2 different bulls in the first two photos. The first photo looks like he is over conditioned, but good type. Second photo looks like he is a pasture bull with poor type. Video is the best way to sell bulls over the internet, the photos can ruin your sales unless you have the time to take 200 pics for the one perfect shot.

BG, I like your bull! What is his pedigree?

I already sold the Upgrade pictured bull above, he is going to Texas on Sunday.
Thanks for the input JW. I do have a video on him, I just did not post it here (did not want to appear to be selling bulls on CT, that is a no no).

This is a new Simbrah we acquired last September. 71lb BW, 772lb WW and 1376lb YW. Really like his EPD's and cannot wait for his first calves.

Nice one, Insurman. Did you get him from Justin Hall? He has some solid Flecks on his facebook page.

Fire Sweep I'd rather buy from people who have the set to post photos on a forum than a glossy catalogue. Some of these registered breeders are so far out there they have no idea what works and what the commercial cattlemen want.

Some young Limox bulls. These should be sold after ~1,5-2months. Both red horned ones and a silver one are from 1st calvers. The red polled boy has 160lbs BW.
