H'76 brought down our new bull yesterday. It was raining so i took some pictures and video of him today
Sure glad we beat NR to him. :wink:
Heard you talked H'76 out of a couple more bulls. Have to let us know how those 137Y son's do. :D

My Jersey cow feeding her calf and the bum. Just thought it was cute.

Shhh everybody will want one now lol. I like H76's bulls but the cowherd is what I like more-pretty darn functional and sound out earning a living. I do know where you can get semen on a couple of his bulls-they are down at Billings and are collecting well. Your bull is goimng to make some good cows.

NR we were discussing where all this sudden interest came from in the 137Y bull.
Will have to keep me posted on how those calves turn out.
Ace was saying he really wished he had collected some semen from our bull.

I'm more interested in the good cows behind the bulls to be honest-Ty and I are sorting the top 80 of 450 for the two bulls down in stud-the five yearlings will get the 200 first calf heifers. I got two nice bulls for the Waldorf at arno doerksen's.

He does look like he can cover ground, although that back leg comes up a long way before the muscle starts, and it's flat muscle at that. He looks like the type that won't have to lose much weight to look pretty average, that's my opinion.

He could be like me and have to gain weight to look average lol. He was fed pretty cool this winter I doubt he'll melt feeding cows.

I think there's to much empasis put on a big hip on maternal bulls. Take a look at your most maternal cows they will have the shape of a styrofoam coffee cup narrow in the front and angle back as you go. Then take a look at the bulls that make these type of cows and the are the opposite wide and deep in the chest cavity and angle back from there. Round steaks come from the rear 1/4s kinda a low dollar cut in my opinion. He's a good bull no matter the color. You can't have it all in one bull and one breed never ever.A good balanced animal on average is best in my book no extreme's in any one way.

I like your bull ILH even if he is a Hereford. :wink:

I think it was the old boy with the wye plantation who said "a good female should have a face like a chambermaid and a hind end like a cook"

slab sided, no thickness, one bum leg, and his horns are crooked. Maybe you should part with him since he obviously isn't worth what you paid...
I know a place that could he could disappear too so you aren't embarrassed to have him around... :lol:
He would do nicely around here.

Obviously he won't melt much, wasn't meaning to imply he's fat by any means. Just stating my opinion, I simply feel he's average. Hope he does his jobs - settling cows and making the owner happy. Have a good one.
