Yes, Byergo seems to have come out of nowhere. Has anyone seen Bub's Southern Charm?
He doesn't seem to have as much frame, mature weight or $EN issues.
I like the looks of his calves and he is an outcross to a lot of popular sires.
At the moment if I were buying 30 straws from ABS/Origen it would be 10 straws each of Southern Charm, Hoover Dam and Rampage.

We used him and Epic on our first and second calf heifers this year because of growth, low BW, and high calving ease. We used blackstone on our second calf since his sire has a higher BW, just in case. At Byergo sale, we were able to get blackstone at $19 a straw (sells for $40). Either going to go well or be a hot mess.

Isn't Black Magic the reigning "bull of the month club" title holder. Came out of no where because of his #1 ranking $B. I'd never heard of Byergo until very recent. I'll pass on any of that hype.

And for what it’s worth, Acclaim is kinda the same deal. Jindra wasn’t even known until Acclaim’s $B.


A pretty good farm in our part of the country has been using Jindra for a while but Double Vision and others clearly never had the hype as Acclaim.

I’m not quite sold on Jindra Acclaim yet. We only have 5 heifers out of him, but they are all a step or two behind our other AI sired calves.They were definitely Calving Ease, and are bigger framed, but don’t have much thickness at 3 months old. Their still young, but so far not really impressed.
Comparing against;
Ld Capitalist 316
Tex Playbook
HA cowboy up
Coleman Charlo

I would also highly recommend
SAV Resource 1441, and SAV Seedstock for making females.

What are your thoughts on Cowboy Up? I wanted to throw some of him in our breedings this year but it didn't happen.

I feel as though, over half our females are Resource and Seedstock, that have been retained the last couple years. Really liking our Charlo and Titanium calves this year so far. They'd have been out of the Resource and Seedstock replacements.

We flushed our best cow, Coleman Engage 5255’s (Select Sires) Dam to Cowboy Up, Seedstock, Rb Confirmed (oops), and Charlo
Cowboy Up’s are definitely the biggest so far. They are really thick and have big tops and good structure. Only negative is that they are all brown hair colored as calves. Only got 2 Charlo calves out of that flush, but the heifer is probably the best heifer calf we’ve had.
We bred fairly heavy to Cowboy Up and would say that his calves are all really consistent and none have been duds.
Haven’t bred any Charlo x Resource or Seedstock.I bet those are nice
We are planning on flushing to Raindance and President. The pictures I’ve seen of their calves at Schaff are unreal.

Why the oops on Rb Confirmed? We have a heifer calf out of him and I love her. ET calf.

We bred to President this year. I believe we got 30 straws of him. I also think he’s the only SAV we used this year except for a straw of this or that, that we had leftover.

They were OK, just didn’t seem to mesh very well with our cows. Only got one heifer that we decided to keep. We did have one Bull calf that weaned off the heaviest of all though, just didn’t continue to perform on test. I guess we had a few really nice ones and some that were not very good. Not very consistent. We bought Straws of him when he was unproven, when he was Calving Ease and Bred heifers to him, that’s where the “oops”came from.

Well, she's started her shots. We'll flush her on the 14th. We are doing Acclaim the first go round because of the interest of the mating, around here. If she flushes well, we have an opportunity to make some money on her embryos but the interest in them is making my husband second guess whether we should sell them.

We'll flush her a second time to Jet Black and then have her calve to Resource, probably. I do like that Jet Black.

I'll bite, why not flush her again to Acclaim? Making money is never a bad thing.
