Honest comments about the bull I've posted please. He will be 3 next month. He's an AI bull off of the Judd Ranch up in Kansas. Looking to keep a couple bull calves from this year's fall herd. Added a pic of his fall kiddos. Y'all have a good day!




Nice looking gelvieh bull. I'm using a young one for a clean up bull that looks pretty close to him.

Just a young bull to take care of one cow that didn't take to ai breding. He's got some growing to do for sure, but I like him.

Keeping a bull for one cow? That doesn't seem very cost effective! And what is the cow going to do while you're waiting for the bull to grow?

He bred her. He's old enough. And I borrowed him.

I need this fella to last me a few years so I didn't push him. He is producing calves that wean around 550 lbs which is good for my area. Small steps and progression in my production. Let me know what you think...good bad otherwise...thanks all!

Bull looks real good. Do you turn him out on Angus cows?
