Karl, is that Ed's boy? You sure he's a fitter? The bull in the picture is sale clipped but he sure isn't fitted to a T.SDSteve said:Just remeber that Karl Olson is one of the best fitters around. He can make a silk purse out of a sows ear any day.
I think she looks big enough. How big is she? What does she weigh?Turkey Track Bar said:BRG we lost the cheat sheet for carcass what was the fat and ratio's on rib and IMF? I think he is a very complete and I wish he was cleaner fronted. It was a very nice purchase but are you sure that cow is big enough for you guys? What frame do you think the bull is.
Say hello to the mrs. for us!!!
I don't hardly think the cow is a 6 to me. If she is she looks like she could weigh more than 1450. She's heavy. I have to have that kind of volume the cow displays. If I were to fault the bull it would be his heart girth. He IMHO, doesn't need any less heart girth. He's a good bull though and I would use him just because he's out of that dam and dakota.BRG said:I framed the bull myself a week before the sale and he was right at a 6.8 Frame The cow is no smaller than a 6 but I don't think she is a 6.5 either. Don't remember what the backfat is, but he had a 16. 3 REA with a ratio of 125 and a IMF score of 3.62 with a ratio of 96.
I don't know the weight, but I would guess her at 1400 to 1450lbs. Extremely long bodied cow, woth loads of middle.
He does have a little hide up front, but I like a little hide. That ussually means performance, not always, but ussually.
