A good Maine Bull to make cows
« on: June 26, 2018, 04:53:48 PM »
I have couple of good framed mostly Maine heifers.  What bull would a guy use if he was wanted to retain heifers to his cow herd over the next few years.  Thank you for your opinions.

This bull should give you great females and highly saleable male calves.
The calves should be growthy without the frame, females should have great udders and great carcass, they should aid in easy calving descendant traits.

Semen is available at SEK.

There are a lot of good old school bulls that I would consider too.  Bad Medicine, Kadabra, Ali and Dr Who are ones that quickly come to mind.  You see them a lot in the pedigrees of winning steers and heifers, well maybe not the Bad Medicine's any more, but they make great cows when bred to Maine or Angus cows that are deep sided.
Life is tuff, but it is tougher when you are stupid.
