Really like that bull, nice and stout, and throws some good looking calves. Yikes, glad we haven't had any here. Though we have plenty of mud of course

If you look here you will see a few out of our rwr bull.http://www.steerplanet.com/bb/the-big-show/herd-bull-picture/
Then I get some pictures of the news one in next couple of days. Had about 8 in of snow here over the weekend so everything is still pretty sloppy.

jconner, good to hear. I'll definitely look into him some more. Hope my MAB granddaughter (Loaded 4 Bear x Front & Center) milks out okay, still deciding on what to breed her to. Would love to see some of your RWR calves if possible, sounds like you've got some good ones. Part of the reason as to why I want to breed more shorthorn in is for the blues! Such a pretty color, wish I had more as I'm down to 2 (both very light) due to selling my other 2 due to udder issues. One was a true blue and was gorgeous. The other was darker but had a white belly and lighter on her back end. Calm as could be.

Our RWR heifers have been really good. We have two that calved in nov and are doing good. They have grown well and are milking well. The MAB cow is in still early in her production but we had a nice no worries steer out of her that is being shown right now and the rwr heifer she had in august is just flat out awesome. Only bad thing about the MAB cow is she does not milk great but enough to raise her calves. We wean early here anyways so a lot of times its ok if cow doesn't milk like a dairy cow. But I will try to get a picture of the rwr heifer she had this past August. She will be staying around and we are very excited about her. Also have a blue roan heifer from RWR out of a Salty dog X angus that is the hairest and thickest calf I have had out of the cow. She got rebred that way again this year, hoping for another blue. Ill work on getting pictures the next couple of days.

jconner2088, how have the heifer calves out of RWR been? Have you kept any as cows? I'm looking to get a good maternal cow base and would eventually like to breed more terminal calves out of them. I've definitely liked the majority of the Starburst calves that I've seen, and some of the bulls out of him. How did the calves out of your MAB cow turn out?

I assume there were alot of Here I Am sons there this year. Usually get more pictures and stuff from the big time guys but this year they have been very guarded with them so kinda disappointed that there hasn't been as much sharing of photos. I know it was tough for a lot of folks to get out and view bulls unless you were already at the show this year.

 We have had great luck using using Red, white roan on our shorthorns. We have a nice red white roan X double stuff/monopoly bull that we got from Carl Venable that we put on our crossbreds and never fails we will get some dang good females. This year we have probably one of the best heifers we have had in a while out mab x whiskey cow and red white roan. Ill have to see if I have a picture. With the pictures you showed id be would be hard pressed not to try RWR. We have also started using more FSF bulls, mainly Perfection, but have used starburst and have liked them. The Daredevil bull of Stacey's might be one of my favorite bulls i've never used which is out of starburst.  We are in it to make show steers down here in Texas but we know that if its a heifer it better be something we can keep and eventually have steers with so nothing gets breed freaky minus the MAB cow but she was a purchase out of the Share the Brand Sale on recommendations by my old ag teacher mentor. We flushed her this hear to RWR and Perfections, and then bred her back to our RWR bull. sorry long story.

mbigelow, I will take a look at him again, I looked at him yesterday quite a bit and liked what I saw. Haha I like lots of options but it definitely makes deciding harder. I would actually be really interested in the Muridale Jaxson bull, he sounds like he breeds what I need, not to mention the fact that I really like the cattle that I've been looking through that belong to them. Do you know much about him/had any experience with him?

I did not say Romeo, "Too Tall", Fortune, or any other Weston bull was a belt buckle creature.  I just pointed out that the ancestry of many of those animals contained almost completely very small framed animals.  You would be hard pressed to find a photo of one that was not.  We used a son of Weston Goliath for several years, I saw Fillet, White Count, Independence, and many other Weston bred cattle.  They were not belt buckle cattle.  There's no arguing the fact that their ancestors were.  The first champion bulls at the Iowa State Fair that I remember were WL Golden Glory, Royal Tartan King, and PF Nugget in the early 60's.  By today's standards they were probably 3 frame scores.
 Virtually no one started talking about increased growth rate and frame size for several years and Leader 21, even noted as an outlier by his owner, came along at the right time.
