I80 definitely makes some cool calves of both sexes, but just in my experience I wouldn't say he is a fail-safe heifer bull. I bred a SimAngus heifer to him a few years back. Ended up pulling a 96 pound calf.... The cow was very moderate in size and has not had a calf over the 85 pound mark ever since, including two Front and Center calves. Just what I have experienced, I know that he has treated a lot of heifers right!

I knew it was only a matter of time til you hit this thread RSCattle haha. You should show them a picture of the blue lucky calf. I can't get mine to downsize enough.

I have a lucky heifer out of a purebred shorthorn cow that will be a year old the 28th of Feb. Not sure on her bw as I didn't raise her. She weighed 777 pounds last weekend at a show in southern Utah. Message me an email and I will get you as many pics as you'd like

Yep I agree CAB, I will be using the bull again- just maybe not on that female. Like I said before, the calf wasn't really thick at all, just long and malpresented. I think she would have had it by herself had it been presented correctly. I was a little surprised by the BW compared to what I had been seeing on this thread, but it ain't the end of the world for me, that and she had it at 293 days so it doesn't surprise me it was a little heavier than expected.

The heifer was a Step up X Steel Force. I raised her, she came easy from a fairly moderate Steel Force cow, weighed 72 pounds at birth. Only feed she got through the entirety of her pregnancy was pasture and grass hay. Who knows, maybe just not a lucky breeding for me! Have a few other things I'd like to try Shell Shocked on though.

I agree with Doc, unfortunately I have witnessed a few rodeos like what he is describing... Never fun.

I might add, I don't blame the bull at all for the fun times mentioned above!! Still love the bull, hope to get this calf rolling and bonded with his mother. Yeah it was a little heavier than I was expecting, but every now and then these fun things happen. I'm not one to let it change my opinion on the bull because of one bad deal, that was mainly due to calf presentation.

Well.... Not to be the one to throw the thread off a bit, but my shell shocked was born yesterday morning at about 4 AM at the vet via C-Section. Now, there are a couple things worth mentioning here. I shot the heifer with Dex Tuesday night because she was a few days over her due date and I wanted to make sure I could be around when she calved. We watched her very close, and were right there when she started pushing. I let her push for about 20-30 mins and, not having seen feet yet, I put a hand in her to make sure all was presented correctly. I found front legs and a tongue, however, they were all turned 90 degrees from normal upright presentation. So the calf was coming laying on its side. It also felt to be a decent sized calf, nothing crazy but a little bigger than the 60 pound calf I was expecting haha. After a while of seeing if I could get the calf rotated, I decided I didn't think it was going to happen. This heifer wasn't the biggest heifer, but definitely not the smallest. She probably weighs 1000 pounds or so, maybe 1100. I haven't weighed her in quite a while.

Anyways, when we got her to the vet he felt and said there was no moving the calf to upright position and he recommended an C-section with as long as she had been pushing. Pulled out a very long, but fairly slender 85 pound bull calf. He is solid black, with a fairly long face like FSR's calf earlier in this thread. I can't take say much negative about the calving ease of the calf, he is very slender, just super long. Quite a bit of vigor, particularly for a C-section calf, although his mother is a little confused after having a rough start on her first calf. I will keep ya'll updated on the calf's growth moving forward.

Thanks for keeping us updated! Nice looking set of calves there. Still can't believe those birth weights... I have a shell shocked due any day now so I will update with what I get and hopefully some photo! It's a step up heifer bred to him and she came at about 70 lbs so I am expecting a fairly small calf, especially after what you guys have been saying. Her 289 day mark was yesterday so literally any time now..

That's great to hear from both of you. Really like the looks of that calf FSR!! It definitely sounds like Shell Shocked is proven heifer safe, however I have a question for you both and anyone else that cares to chime in.. I have a super thick clubby heifer that I will be breeding in March or April. I mean she is THICK and had a fairly heavy birthweight in the 90 lb range. What are your thoughts on using him on her? She's got great structure and will be a tank of a cow, I just want to make sure this first calving goes alright. Any thoughts? Thanks for all the info you've provided to this thread!

FireSweep Ranch I saw you comment about Shell Shocked on another thread, how are your calves out of him doing? I know you got a couple last year. Anybody else have updates on the bull?

Josh (Bullpen) Should be able to get you some better info on these questions... we've had one so far out of a SimAngus cow. About a 75 lb heifer with as much vigor as I've ever seen and seems to be growing really well. No issues with birthing.
