Sherman is a nice name.

Yup - I totally agree. Real real nice bull calf. What is (or are) his breed (s)?
Edit: he is good no matter what breed or breeds.

I predict he will be delicious. Keep using a purebred bull. F1s are so much better than 2 & 3s.

if you look in the second pic... you can see one of my black Hereford calfs (bull). I think you're a big fan of those :D :D :hide: (Just kidding with you, sir).

LOL
I do have a couple of Hereford cows and some black baldies, but unless you're having trouble with bulls breaking down on rugged country or can buy them at a deep discount, I prefer the heterosis benefit of a purebred bull over composites.
