The Big Show / University of Illinois Sire Test
« on: February 05, 2019, 03:10:07 PM »
Thought we might start a discussion on this since the "Top 5 thickest shorthorn bulls available" thread headed this direction to allow discussion on the Sire Test and allow the other thread to return to the original intent.



A couple of weeks ago, I was talking with Sue about a calf I am keeping back to observe.  I was able to snap a photo with my cell phone yesterday.

The Big Show / Shorthorn Blood Percentages Registration?
« on: May 05, 2016, 05:29:59 PM »
Is the Shorthorn blood percentage chart being used anymore or is it out the window?  The reason I ask is if you go by the chart a 15/16 bull bred to a 7/8 cow results in a 15/16 calf non-appendix registered (*x......).

I realize if you say 14/32 + 15/32 you get 29/32 which is not the same as 15/16. or to put it another way 90.6% SS instead of 93.75 % SS. 

The new system is showing that animal as (*AR........) instead of (*x........)
Is this a glitch in the system? or Is this a good thing?


The Big Show / Sangamon Irish Plumber

Anybody know anything about this old Shorthorn Bull?  If there is semen still floating around?
I have never used the bull but when I bought my first shorthorn heifers back in 1999 the lady I bought them from talked about this bull.  She said he made them red and thick.  After seeing some of the success of some of the older genetics being used recently, I have wondered about this bull.  Below is a link

The Big Show / Shorthorn AI Certificate ?
« on: September 20, 2015, 07:41:22 AM »
ii. A.I. Certificate: As of June 1, 2015, owners of A.I. bulls may declare their bull either an A.I. Certificate required bull or a non-A.I. certificate bull. Once a bull has been declared a non-A.I. certificate bull, the status will remain permanently. If required, an A.I. Certificate, properly executed, must accompany the application for registry (or be in the applicants ASA account) of each calf resulting from the artificial insemination of a dam to a non-owned, A.I. certificate required bull. All bulls, regardless of A.I. certificate status shall adhere to DNA Genotyping/Genetic Condition Testing requirements found in Rule III, Section 6,

Is there a way of knowing the designation of a bull, or a list of certificate and non-certificate bulls?

The Big Show / Simmental Bulls Input Requested
« on: August 26, 2015, 09:40:23 AM »
Have any of you all had any experience with the following bulls, and how did you like the calves and retained heifers.

Kappes Direct Force K206
Triple C EL Ponderosa Rey
SJ Thorne
TNT Jumpstart  R238

I have used these bulls so I know how they have worked for us but was interested in others comments about the calves. 

Current Cleanup bull is out of Triple C EL Pnderosa Rey and a Nichols Legacy G151 cow.  Most likely going to buy back an SJ Thorne son out of an SAS/ASF ALL Star x Nichols Legacy G151 cow to use as a cleanup bull.

This year I am letting the home raised Goldmine 2109 son tend to the Shorthorn cows.  However I am going to AI both his dam and full sister to one of either DRC 101VM (Dover) or RS DV 034 329 08.

Both bulls on paper pretty much accomplish my goals of moderating size keeping birthweight low, maintaining adequate growth and keeping milk from going too high but not dropping too low.  Just looking for people experiences with these two bulls.
