Bull calf critique

Just wanted to hear opinions and critique about this calf. He is about 7 months old and I would guess 550-600 lbs. Would anyone consider keeping him to see how he turns out or would he be better as beef? Thanks

He looks decent, what breed he is and what kind of cows you're planning to use him on?

He is Angus if I keep him he would go in with Gert/Hereford cows.

If you need another bull I would let him develop for a while. You can always sell him or make beef out of him later if he doesn't develop to suit you.
