What’s the breeding on the chromed up calf and cow?

I really like them. You have some great looking cattle.

Unless you are in a purebred operation, selling seed stock.

Wouldn't let me edit - errr.
Anyway, correction. I should not have said "unless". Pounds do make me money. 90% of my bull calf crop is sold by the pound as steers, so that definitely affects my income!! And, if my females & bulls were dinks, they wouldn't make me money either.

I really like them. You have some great looking cattle.

The white/roan cow is Shorthorn Saler, Red Angus, Hereford or something

The chromed up steer is a really nice guy.. 1/4 Gelbvieh, 3/8th Shorthorn, some Saler and Hereford too
Bull is Gelbvieh/Shorthorn/Hereford, most of the calves are sired by a similarly bred bull but with a little Saler in there as well

They're mutts, but I like them

If your genetics aren't putting the pounds on my calves I'm not making money.

This is the bull we got last year. He is a little over 2 years old.

I agree. And....

Genetics/individual selection X matching environment = pounds

Not good , especially as big as he is.. Wide between the toes and curling in at the tip.. ""Scissor foot ""nothing I'd want to incorporate in replacements but if he has good heels they might wear evenly...
as an adult,it's clear to me now...why Ernest T Bass, threw rocks at people..
