Here are photos of our two mature Murray Grey bulls, BB Uncle Tony and OK Buford. We also have a yearling that we are bringing on to use over heifers and as a back-up bull after we sell Buford.
BB Uncle Tony- He is our primary herd sire and is a 5 year old. He is siring some of the best calves that we have ever had. We collected him about 18 months ago, so we will be able to AI to him in the future.
Image

OK Buford- He too is a 5 year old and is a half brother to Tony. He is our current back-up bull.
Image
As our herd grows, we will eventually split them into two breeding groups, so we will need to have two mature bulls and a back-up bull on the place. We will be breeding a little over 30 cows this year, so we will AI a handful and use Tony to breed the rest. Next year, we will likely need to split the herd into two groups because we will be breeding right around 40 head.

Wow! Congratulations, they are spectacular. Angus really screwed the pooch mixing with Holstein for more milk and frame. Some of the expensive breeding stock that has been imported here produce dairy butts on everything they touch. Genetically your cattle are probably closer to Original Population Angus than what we use.

I think your primary herdsire and your backup bull should switch roles....

Lots of good looking bulls on this thread!

A few of our big boys posed so I could take some pictures the other day:

Image
3yr old home raised Black Angus. "Camaro" 81B

Image
another home raised 3yr old Black Angus. "Great Northern" 132B

all 3 of these blacks are 3yr olds. (the one on the left and the one on the right are the same bulls pictured above)

Now who's the fool who says Angus bulls don't have rear ends? Surely nobody on these boards.

Awesome bulls Creek.

Both of them dudes really grew up last year! I'll peg that on the rain grass and genetics.
