Title: "Believe In Me" or his son "I Believe"
Post by: DB on May 15, 2014, 08:50:46 AM
So which one would you use? would you go directly to Believe in Me or his son I Believe?

Are the calves from these two very similar or different?

How's the disposition of the calves and what have the birth weights been range wise?

Thanks in advance just trying to broaden my horizon a little bit

Saw both of these at stud last year as well as this year. Last year I would have bred everything to I Believe.  This year I would be pretty cautious on him.  He really grew up.  Seemed pretty large framed to me compared to his sire.  Until you see some calves I would use the proven bull. There are a lot of great believe in me calves and you know how they will feed out.

Mine and some of my friends BIM are all hot headed, they're pretty but the attitude is not something I desire.

What kind of cow and what does she look like?

I would agree with the Believe in Me temperments.  They are hairy, thick and pretty to look at, but they can be a handful at times to deal with.  If you have a younger showperson, make sure you check the calf temperment/attitude....some aren't the best for little kids.
