I've had a few, so my sample size is relatively small. Born easy out of both cows and first calf heifers. Definitely adds depth of body and keeps frame size in check from what I've noticed. I have a son out of him that I retained for my own herd. I liked him enough that I have also sampled his full brother (CCR Santa Fe) and a son (BCLR Wide Load). Wide Load added a bit of leather, but like Range, the calves were born easily and have grown fast so far. For what it's worth I've kept them all.

Best of luck to you!

I have never used him. Very difficult to sample all the good ones, because there are so many out there. Phenotype - he looks great - the type I would use. Pedigree is great. Numbers look good, not extreme. Calving Ease with great growth. Moderate priced.

Bull looks good. 3/4 blood so he has versatility. Worth checking out.
