Let us know what you chose and how it works.

I think personal copyright information is very limited on the Internet today because someone can save your picture, and if they alter it in any way they can say it's theirs.

I look forward to hearing what response you get back!

Older bulls probably never got tested before they died or put down.and probably have never had a positive calf born yet.

Thanks ROMAX, that makes sense.

First I will give the disclaimer that I am a Purebred Simmental and Simmental x producer.  So to some it may seem I'm partial but I think a good PB Simmental or SimAngus bull will give you predictability on paper, take care of the genetic concerns on the carrier cows, and depending on the pedigree you should like what you see in the heifers and also have a marketable calf whether they spend time in the show ring first or not.

Best of luck!

I haven't seen him in person but he has sparked my curiosity, I hope someone will shed some light on him.

I don't know who posts for Judgingpro.com but with Dr. Scott Greiner from VT and Marty Ropp of Allied Genetic Resources I'd say it is very well put together and will be beneficial to all who use it.  I will try the demo soon myself to check it out.

I have used beet pulp before with good results.  Good luck!

Happens in other businesses too, I've seen it in the construction equipment industry every now and then.  It's a shame.

The question is, How much did they really pay for the 190,000 heifer? Last Year there was a bull that was already purchased for 25k. A real good friend of mine was one of the ones who bought interest. They ran him through an auction and he sold for 40k. he really only sold for 25k. its a you scratch ,my back, I scratch yours. I also know of a 20k+ heifer that only sold for 5k or 6k+ but made good publicity for the bull.  I would venture to guess the heifer truly didnt sell for 190,000. JMO

As a Simmental breeder I'd love to hope it was real money but I don't know I've ever seen one that went even into the teens where there wasn't some agreement established prior to that animal entering the sale ring.  Not saying it's a great thing but it sure happens.

I'm surprised there hasn't been pictures and threads on that heifer selling.

The Big Show / PHA/TH Status Unknown
« on: January 04, 2013, 07:57:37 PM »
I was searching the Club Calf Sire list on Cattle Visions website and noticed several bulls with PHA and TH status "Unknown".

Does this mean these bulls have never been tested?  I'm not as familiar with PHA and TH as it's not tested in the Simmental breed which is what I have shown since I was young.  Just recently we have started picking up some crossbred cattle and looking at other breeds to produce better cattle. 

I always thought bulls had to be tested prior to selling semen on the open market but maybe that's not the case?

At our State Fair a few years ago in the Angus show a bred and owned heifer stood in front of one who topped a sale a few months earlier at $20,000.  I bought a heifer at the Dixie National a few years ago whose full sibs avg $3500 a few months prior in a production sale.  Got her home and took her to our fall shows a few months later and she brought home banners, I paid $1400 including bringing her home

I agree.  Those who have semen on him are using it wisely and also watching with anticipation what he does in Denver.  Fingers crossed I'm going to breed a group of Simmental and SimAngus first calf heifers to him in about a month.

What would it have been like to live in the hay days of the Denver Union or other major stockyards?
