If you know the owner, why can't you ask him?

He owns the sale barn. Who knows how, where, or when he got them. He sells hundreds of cows and bulls a week

He's looks long and smooth,so he might work..today's angus come in all shapes.he looks to be..but was probably picked through in the herd..

If he's registered and has a tattoo you might be able to look up his numbers.. He looks alright, one picture he looks a little post legged but that might just be because he was just pizzing a minute before

He probably did come from a reg. Herd, and may have a higher birth weight. And like the majority of commercial producers, thats the number they look at the most.and shy away from..

Well, you sure didn't overpay for him.
1630 lbs?
1630 x .92 = $1500
Trich and fertility testing must have cost the seller $50+?

slaughter bulls are bringing 85-90 cents lb
1630 x .89 = $1450
