Careful the activists might see that haha

Thanks for all the kind compliments, that first one is called ripper he is our go to hfr bull, we think both of those bulls are quite unique in the thickness they carry, but their best quality is in the consistency of their calf crops. A good bull still has to be able to pass on their attributes to their offspring if he’s going to do you any good


Wish we could find an Angus bull like that is this area. What frame size is he? The blaze faced bull looks to be bigger framed but might be the pic.

Elk,
Ripper, is a 5.5 at the most. The other bulls are 6’s

We do have 13 sons of ripper selling this March, the American dollar is pretty good right now :D

i think we probably like the same type of cattle, we struggle to find ones that fit into the moderate category that still maintain muscle expression and don't give up too much in their top and hip. Its getting even tougher in the Angus up here as they are getting pretty big again.

I'm ok with sacrificing a few lbs on weaning weights in exchange for a more moderate animal, as long as that animal maintains their thickness. We run a 2-yr old program where the bulls don't get any supplemental grain until they are 18 months old. They loose all their baby fat over the first winter and run out on grass for the summer, the bigger framed bulls typically don't hold up or gain as well in the environment we run them in.

here's an Angus herd sire that's about a 5.5 frame

and another that would be 6 -also the sire of the Simmangus bull i posted earlier

Awsome bull! Bulls like that don't come around very often. Are you going to collect him?

We haven’t decided yet, we have our third calf crop coming this spring and we have a son we are keeping as well so don’t really have a need to, and the semen game is a fickle one

This was a bull I raised - he is my avatar. Simme Valley Macho As U. Old, long gone, but influences my herd. Still breed to him. He was a CE & BW trait leader (back when they designated trait leaders). Still get a check in the mail now & then from SEK Genetic Horizons selling his semen.
