Theres something odd about these mature bull pics.  Very different from the mature bull image I see in my minds eye when I think of beef cattle. 

Would he have too much frame for the current show ring?  I recall he sired the national champion TNT Fastrack who had to be a frame 9 or 10.

AJ, from what I recall in your ads in SC youve been bold in your bull selection over the years.  Why not be bold again?  Take a risk on something more modern than Mission or 7060 (both of whom are products of the mid 90s).  There are plenty of red bulls with style and substance out there who were born in the last 5-7 years that could be different enough to be unique and bet on.  With enough volume youre bound to get 1 or 2 that are good enough to have fun showing...while still being different.  Or, go back further than Mid 90s and grab a pre-frame race red bull who was under utilized due to the type change and see what an entire calf crop would bring.  Surprise everyone, and then post pictures.

Red Knight was the soundest, most fluid moving bull ive seen in maybe ever. He looked like a million bucks at Louisville as yearling. just about as balanced as you could make one.
I agree.  I saw him at Louisville and he was incredible.

Bapton constructor
Kenmar Ransom
Rodeo Drive
Instant Enticer
Red Riders Drive
SULL Red Knight

Solid red bulls siring show cattle in numbers (assuming Red knight continues - 174 registered offspring last two years))...depends on what generation youre after I guess  (lol)

Heres a pic of High Time, assuming its the High Time youre referring to.  He was full irish by Improver 3rd and was used by Waukuru a little in the early 80s.

Things do have a tendency to come back around.  I just cant imagine the giants ever walking the earth again.  I have a Drovers Journal from 84 and its just unreal.

Was 1984 Denver the peak of Shorthorn interest in modern times?  I recall the sale being incredible with a bull selling for 100k - not much heard from him after that (2416).  From what I recall reading the stands were full of bidders, there was huge buzz, and the high seller sold for part interest to a breeder in South America.  Goliath was a monster and I dont think he won, or came close.  I think it was the first big wave of Ayatollah offspring at that show.  Curious what the historians recall.  Many amazing <7 frame cattle were pushed aside or lost in the chase.

Looks like Ayatollah to me.
Yup, young Ayatollah - changed the breed in a big way for a time

I dont follow Angus.  Could someone explain the 1,107 lb weaning weight?  5lbs/day until weaning?

This report is very weak in details.  Hard to believe theyd publish it like that.
