We have retained two females out of that particular cow, OK Bee Happy. Both were sired by Tony's half brother, OK Buford. Compared to the rest of our herd, their calves have a little more muscle and very solid phenotypes. OK Bee Happy has had three AI sired bull calves the last three years and we ended up castrating her 2017 and 2018 sons. Her 901 calf has similar depth and width as our Tony sons, but he is lacking masculinity and muscle through the rear at this stage.TwoByrdsMG wrote: ↑Sun Jun 09, 2019 11:13 pmWow! General sure has filled out since the last pictures I saw of him.
Nothing wrong with 901 either... have you kept any of her calves to maturity yet? Maybe he won't really start bulking up until 10-12 months.
Is he lacking the width and length when compared to your Tony sons? He sure has a nice heifer bull shoulder...
