2.5 yr old Angus bull. Older genetics but I like the calves I have on the ground already.

So do you like the Wye genetics? Are you running him on commercial cattle or Wye females? What types of weaning weights are you getting? I like the Wye line of cattle. Thanks,

Tim


Tim, running him on both commercial and registered but mostly registered. He is my first straight bred Wye bull but the calves are very solid and carrying good meat on their frames already. They should wean 550+ which is about all I ask for. He will knock some frame off my bigger cows for sure but is not a pud. The real reason he is here wont be assessed for another 4-5 years but the heifer calves give me every indication of being the right type. Time will tell.

Yeah he's alright. But he's a roarer, which I hope he grows out of. He's been thinking he's tough stuff this summer, and I haven't sent a big guy in to put him in his place yet.

Thanks all

I think Supa's got some sort of bull stretching machine he's keeping a tight lip on.

A nice black baldy bull calf, born in April and is going to his new home with five cows waiting for him.
