TCA Visionary 158

Post by VaCowman » Tue Sep 15, 2020 8:28 am

Anybody have any experience with this bull? He has caught my eye a few times when looking through the Leachman Sire Directory. He looks to be a little heavier on milk than I prefer, but curious what others have experienced. Writeup on this bull suggests moderate females with good udders, but doesn't mention anything about feet.

Had a little experience with him here, but did not keep the calves long enough to give you an honest assessment. I have a friend that could give you some first hand knowledge on his calves if you’d be interested in giving him a call?

TCA no experience with the bull but his write up & photos on page 50 of Leachman's catalog leads one to believe he's a cow maker who does a lot of things right with the added plus of calving ease & feed efficiency,

Sure! PM phone number when convenient. If you don't mind giving him a heads up that I will be calling, that'd be nice. I hate cold calling. hehe

Why did you get rid of calves? Sale pairs or were the calves just subpar and sold before they became obvious dinks?

Used his son TCA Accruel 260 that Select leased. I bought my registered Angus cows from TCA herd here in Iowa. Buddy has both Accruels and Visionary daughters. They are be nice good cows. Never seen a bad foot on any of them. They do milk pretty good
