The Big Show / Re: best simmental bull
« on: August 03, 2019, 10:32:13 AM »
LTF Simmentals - We did end up using DMCC Fully Loaded last summer and ended up with a handful of calves. They look really good right now, plenty of rib and muscle. Their growth is decent, not outstanding but still good compared to our Angus sired calves. He does throw a little bit of white but only if it is on the dams side also. He breeds very similar to 1143Y but I would say Loaded Up probably turns out the best calves.

I calves out 10 heifers bred to 1143Y and had no trouble. We only pulled one and that was because it was already late and didnt want to wait for her. Biggest calf was 80lbs but most were in the 75 lb range. But they grow like crazy and impress me every day. They turned out better than our Loaded Up calf which isnt growing much.

Thanks for the replies! We were thinking the same but weren't completely sure. Thankfully he isn't our best steer but we will see if he will sell!

We had a show steer that had pink eye and ended up with a white spot on the showman's side eye. He's a pretty good steer but I wondered if a judge would knock him down because of it? He's not a state fair winner but a decent county fair steer. Thanks!

Not finding anything on the internet. Does anyone know the cost of Importing mature bulls from Canada to US? Also, do you have to quarantine them for a certain time? Thanks in advance.

Loaded Up or his full brother W/C Lock N Load 1143Y are really making clean fronted calves while keeping the power. We are going to try another full brother DMCC Fully Loaded this year to see how they compare.

Check out BCII's Next Up Angus bull. He seems to add a lot of muscle and power to shofter made females. We used him on a simmi cow last year and that bull calf was stout and stylish.

The more I look at and study the Genex bull WC1143Y the more I think that he is one that needs more use and has been over looked. Reg. # 2684560 also listed in Werning's sire directory. May not be true CE bull but +10 and change CE. 85lb BW.

We bred a group to him for fall 18 calves. I have heard a lot of good things about his babies. Excited to see those calves!

I bought a group of heifers that had some bred to 1143Y. An HPF Steel Force Z316 heifer had twin bull calves. out of 1143Y. Both were about 70lbs. They are stout and looking good.

We finished calving our WC 1143Y calves yesterday and we are very impressed. All the calves are growing great and getting stouter everyday! He does throw a lot of white if there is much on the dam and puts some white on ones out of all black dams. Birthweights were moderate, 75 to 85lbs, so I wouldn't call him heifer safe unless there wasn't big bw on the dam' s side. We are definitely going to use him again this spring.

« on: January 26, 2018, 12:57:11 PM »
Thanks for the replies. Cowman, using the 3% rule, estimating her weight at 800lbs (we dont have scales) would mean feeding her 24lbs of feed. And yes she gets all the brome hay she wants. I have fed cattle for 10 years now and have never fed any that much unless they were a hard doing big framed Simmi. I have adjusted the energy down in my ration but was looking for suggestions on supplements other than fresh and feminine or other tricks to keep the pones from growing while adding condition to them. She's a real easy keeper, growing extremely well on just 10lbs of feed.

The Big Show / Angus heifer help
« on: January 25, 2018, 09:32:35 PM »
I have shown Simmis for years but I have my first Angus heifer to show. How do you keep the pones and tailhead from getting to fat. The heifer needs more condition but is already getting pones. Currently feeding 12% protein 3%fat and 10lbs once a day. Top dressing with fresh and feminine. Thanks in advance
