Title: A Little Reverse Engineering Experiment
Post by: CRS on February 03, 2020, 08:14:20 PM
Last year we decided to try something out of the ordinary for us.  We have always been a big fan of Bob Agle and his bulls over the years and we have a 4 frame MAB cow that really needs some added frame and a cleaner front, so we decided to use Agle's bull Bad Medicine on her.  I have talked to Bob several times about using him and he always said that the bull needed to be put on a cow that was pretty deep sided, but other than that he would take care of the rest.  Pretty pleased with the calf, but sure would have like to have had a heifer out of that mating.  Calf came pretty easy, was made right weighed just over 80 pounds and gets better by the day.

Yeah. I think the straw had a collection date of 1989 or 1990
