I have some 3-4 shortie 1-4 Red angus females I would think he would work great on. I'm not sure the Durham Red will succeed like I thought it would. They need to be defect tested. Supposedly they are to be shorthorn-red angus blood only(then you get into the appendix deal as well.)  Looks like to me he could do a great deal of good.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

AJ, thanks for the interest. I do know that SEK has about 100 units there in Galesburg now. I do have a scrotal measurement at two years of age but not sure if he had one as a yearling. It was 37.5 at GLSS. I was looking into getting some genetic defect testing done from Igenity until I figured out they don't deal with the parentage side of things with the ASA. So now I will probably get some testing done with Pfizer here really soon. Just getting into hay season and getting busy!

At a year he had a 35.5 scrotal and was 48 inches tall. Right under a 5 frame. I thought I included that when I sent the papers in. That would be my bad.

aj, I think he would be genetic defect free by pedigree. I have never used a carrier bull or cow. I avoided that stuff like the plague. Cherokee Canyon's sire is a OS carrier but Cher Can tested free.  As far as the shorty side, he should be fine. I would like to see you give him a try. Cross him on some Govt Mule daughters down the road :) <beer>
Progress is not about using progeny differences to change cattle, it is about sustaining the good ones absent self-inflicted problems.

Thanks for that info on the genetic defect OS. I was looking all over the Red Angus site looking for what defects I should have Complete tested for. Glad to hear that he is clean on that one. Any other suggestions for defect tests would be welcomed. We will send out the hair sample here soon.

Durham Reds have to be TH and PHA tested, or be free by parentage to get papers along with BW, WW, YW turned in.  That gets you a gold Durham Red paper.

Update on Complete calves! We have had our first two heifers in the last two days. Both unassisted out of black crossbred Angus cows. First one was approximately 75 lbs. at birth and the second approximately 85 lbs. Both got up and nursed on their own. The first calf was jumping around like a rodeo at only a half hour old! Never seen vigor quite like that. I am more than thrilled with their quality too. Many more coming shortly!

Also, Complete was tested TH, PHA, OS, and MA free.

Two Complete heifers less than a week old. Calves started one week ago and there have been 8 calves hit the ground in 7 days. All unassisted, all black out of black cows. Coming easy and vigorous.
