Thank you Jeanne. But back to the topic Loaded up seems to make all his calves pretty. Broker heifers have won many shows. I think js sure bet and njc Amazon were under used good maternal bulls.

I have to say Bandwagon works well and won`t break the bank buying semen like Built Right will at around $150 a straw I would use it wisely. The heifer in this picture combines both bulls she is a Bandwagon out of a solid black Built Right cow. She is bred to CCR Boulder and should calve 9-11or so.

The few bandwagon calves I’ve seen haven’t been the longest fronted calves, but we are using a bandwagon clean up bull this year on some cows. I do like those two heifers.

Remember the cow is 50% of the equation. the bull can't clean up all cows.

That`s a really nice heifer. I think one of the things I like about Bandwagon is he puts the right amount of white in the right places for my liking and they just have a nice look to them. I`m going to use TKCC Classified and JASS On the Mark on some of my solid black cows this year.

I have been using Classified for a couple of years. Bought semen direct from HPF when they got him. Had a couple of calves in 2017 and a few this year. Sold a 2 yr old with a Classified heifer on side. Pair went out to Indiana and calf was successfully shown out there & being shown this year.
Had two solid blacks, 1 with star & 1 white chrome EVERYWHERE. Chromed up heifer was out of a chromed up cow.
