Or pick any bull and do IVF and reverse sort the semen. There is some that don't reverse sort but not near as many that do.

What was the deal on Just Rite? What did he work well on? For reference most of my cows are sound, have plenty of belly and pretty fronted. Wondered what Maines would work on that type of cow

 I know Martindell Shorthorns got along real well with Just Rite. I still have a cane of semen on him.

Red advantage has made little to no impact on the breed as a whole.  In fact I know of no purebred breeders that would even consider using him. 


 I would say that Red Advantage has made an impact in the breed. Look at his son Red Reward.

IMO they picked an outstanding person for the position !! From a family with strong Shorthorn roots, down to earth ethics and a very sharp individual !! Couldn't be happier for her and the breed.

It seems to have been taken care of for a number of days when I was attempting online looks at Shorthorn.Org my antivirus security deal blocked me with a warning must be ok now O0

 I would get the same message if I didn't put www at the beginning. If I did put it there, then it was fine.

The Big Show / Re: Hot Commodity & Evolution
« on: October 25, 2019, 07:53:37 PM »
I've been very pleased with my HC's and Evolutions. They are seeming to milk very good, haven't had any issues with calving and for them to be easy calving the calves are not throwaways like some calving ease bulls out there sire. For what I do and try to accomplish with my herd, both of these bulls have worked very well for me. I was fortunate this month to partner with AJ Cattle on 2 good HC daughters. 1 was Reserve Grand at the 2017 Jr Natl's and the other won the 2017 IN State Fair. Both won their divisions at NAILE also. I'm excited about the future for these 2 females.
 As far as Pretender goes, IMO he was too inconsistent for me. There has been some good cattle by him, but I've seen a lot of bad ones also.
 Like Lonnie said, that's the good thing with having different likes and dislikes. If you don't like the cattle I raise, then you don't have to buy them but also at a sale then you and I probably won't be competing for the same animal which is good for both us.

Here are 2 cows and 1 bull that are dtrs and a son of Hot Commodity in pasture condition. The spotted cow is the Reserve Grand Female at the 2017 Jr Natl's and is nursing a May Hotwire heifer and the roan won the 2017 IN State Fair.
 The bull is triple bred calving ease with better numbers than his sire.

The HC daughters I have seen and been involved with as cows, I've been very pleased with. As any, you can have some outliers, but as a whole I think they are doing good.

The Big Show / Re: Price point for Bulls in the United States
« on: September 27, 2019, 05:30:07 PM »
If memory serves.....Marty Loving told me his minimum was like 2,700$. That was on bulls that have been on  feed and tested and what not. You can wrap up a lot of feed in a bull if you feed them to a year and a half or two years old.
You're right. You can get a lot tied up in them, but to me the flip side is what are you going to do with them if they don't meet your minimum price ?? You take them to the yard and you sure aren't going to get $2,700 for them. To me if they are that close to average then I would be happy with a little over yard price. If they are above average then they should hold their own and at least bring your floor as long as you are realistic.
 That's the problem with floors and a lot of people. They will say yea I would like to floor her. Her momma is a 1/2 sister to a division winner at NAILE 7 years ago and one like her just brought $10k at a sale last month so I'll floor her at $5k. Well, lots of times the heifer or bull is barely worth $.10 over yard price.

You can also get it from a lot of the Irish Shorthorns. Especially if they trace back to AF Shannon Margie 027 aka "Black Nose Margie"

call john dutton from yellowstone ranch?

Nah, just go straight to Rip. He's the one going to take care of it anyway. The fewer people know about it the better.
