Maybe it’s just the pics but still seems skinny to me? If I understand it correctly the bull was with 20 cows but most were calving or heavy bred? He wasn’t doing that much work then. I can’t see how it would be normal for him to lose 200-300 pounds under those conditions. Maybe I am missing something here.
Do you not see any improvement ? And would you sale ?

Looks like a growing brangus bull to me!

I thought so as well I’m trying to be patient which as hard but as well I’m keeping a lookout on bulls on the internet just in case he doesn’t pick up his weight like he should. Any reputable brangus breeders in east Tx area or north Tx.

I think Patterson Brangus has a website. I’ve seen some of their cows at a special sale before and looked to be good quality Brangus cattle. J&J cattle in Bryan,Tx also has nice stuff.

How old is this bull?

A penned bull should get fat on you with a bale and a little ground feed here and there.

These are Brahman and F1 bulls on grass... no feed. It's not the Brahman giving that bull that look... its poor genetics. He should be wearing hamburger buns... not a halter.

Is this one of those just because he can breed doesnt mean he should?

I really hope to get a calf or outta that lil bull.
Hes long gone now. But his temperament was the best!

He is very angular....

Is he consuming enough good hay....protien etc..... if his rumen fills he would be more rounded
