We have both BIM and MAB calves.  had BIM last year as well.  MAB does what he does, extremely well.  makes them soggy and big legged.  for me and my preferences.  BIM calves come pretty reasonable at birth and get better everyday through weaning.  I will need to see if the MAB calves do the same, but looking at them side by side on similar cows (at my place), i am afraid the MAB calves may see there best days in the pasture along the cows and the BIM will see theres in front of a backdrop.  I am a sucker for a good looking one, and although the BIM calves are more slightly built at birth, my experience last year with them was they just continued to get better and maintained a really good look.  so , MAB and BIM are very different in type and how you need to breed them.  If i had a bunch of Total Play/ hannibal type cows i would use MAB.  good solid sim/angus or maine angus cows with some rib and power that need more wow get BIM
I have not seen any 2Tone calves, but for a bull with color, i expect him to breed more like BIM than MAB

The Big Show / Re: Best Irish Whiskey Son
« on: April 01, 2013, 08:32:10 AM »

Above is a link to Chap on SP bull named Afterhours. I know that he is clean pedigree and Brad will have some calves born this spring. Dr. Who x Imprint on the bottom side. Be a bull to ck out IMO.
Lonnie Sievers also has an Irish Whiskey son that he has collected & sold a little juice on, but that's about all I know about him. A couple of bulls that I am watching right now that are 3/4 blood MA are Summit and Shelby both by Hard Drive. Summit I think was out of an Ali x Meyer and Shelby out of a Meyer.
 Classic is also a bull that I have been watching for a couple of years. Sired Rebel Soul of late. He's PB & I don't think that I want to inject that much MA. here.

Afterhours has really been working nicely for us,  thanks for the post Brent.  We have 21 Afterhours on the ground now.  All unassisted out of a variety of cows including Clubby bred 2nd calvers.  Heifers have been 75-85 and bulls 80-95 consistently.  All solid black and really good structured.  He has been throwing more hair than we expected and the calves are simply exploding as they age.  Due to the craziness of calving season and the lack of green grass and warm temps, i have not had the chance to grav many pics, but here are 2 candids of an Afterhours x I Am Legend that i was able to grab with my cell phone last week.

The Big Show / Re: Best smoke bull???
« on: March 05, 2013, 09:09:15 AM »
he is new this year, but try Guilt Trip from Trausch,  Eye Candy x Char that we raised,  he has always had lots of middle,  good smoke color and very loose structured.  pics of him at Denver and as a baby calf

The Big Show / Re: Houston Steer Show Judge
« on: February 27, 2013, 11:29:47 AM »
Mark has a very keen eye.  he assisted as coach on my judging team at Iowa State back in the mid 90s.  if you are really going to break him down, remember that he is a pig guy at heart.  He will evaluate market steers with the same criteria that he uses in hogs.  they will need to be blown apart, good looking and sound.  I think you will enjoy hearing him on the mic and I have no doubts that he will do a very thourough job.  I would agree with Chambero on his evaluation of light weight cattle and that fits right in with my explanation of him relating nearly all species back to hogs

The Big Show / Re: Craziest breeding decisions
« on: February 21, 2013, 03:24:43 PM »
i do this every 3-4 years, so it may be stupidity more than crazy.  but using any so called "calving ease" maine cross clubby bull on heifers.  Ali and sons included.  High accuracy, proven pb bulls are the only way to go.  seems like every time i try the flavor of the month calving ease clubby i undoubtedly get a giant to put in the dead pile, but man, aren't they cool?

use him on heifers last 2 years.  the 2nd set should be coming within the next week.  Flat good cattle that come easy and have look.  i included a pic of a BC Classic x Grizzley heifer that topped our online sale this past fall going to Pryor Cattle Company

The Big Show / Re: I believe semen only for auction?
« on: January 25, 2013, 11:39:47 AM »
I Believe was one of the most popular bulls in Denver this year, undoubtedly he will be in good demand for a rookie bull that hasn't frozen semen yet.  High Demand + low supply = $$$
I appreciate how Wade does this.  if you have a cow you want to flush and are 20th on the list and he can only fulfill 10 orders you are out of luck.  Put it up for auction and let the buyers determine price.  Remember Price does not determine quality, it determines OWNERSHIP!!!

Just got the official pic of the bull we sold back in the summer to Trausch Farms and Sievers Show Cattle.  Guilt Trip is a March born Eye Candy x Char.
