Good. We just need more like him. I hope he has children and raises them to follow dads footsteps.Chuckie said:i happen to know a cattle buyer who can't pass a red for love nor money--he's a hoot, and he'll do WHATEVER it takes to buy 'em :roll:
They are Red Angus Shelly. Yes, they both keep easy but the bull was shown so he was fed quite a bit. He didn't fall off too bad though out on cows. He is at Genex in Strafford Mo. collecting export semen . I called to get his in weight after I dropped him off but he was too wide to get on their scales. That was after being out on cows and being in his pen for a month with nothing but grass and hay.Shelly said:Are you raising Red Angus? Pretty heavy for an Angus, he and the heifer look more like Red Simmental. If they are Angus, he sure is an easy-keeper! And he looks good!
Can't beat that.Shelly said:I'd have to look it up. All I know for sure right now is that he came from Alberta, calves easy, and his calves grow like weeds! We get good money for them come fall. Last year a dumpy little Hereford heifer weaned off a 750# heifer calf from him. The rest of his calves weren't far off the 700# range.
