At least they warn you by saying, do not to breed take charge to straight fronted females.

Black Bear (bull on the maternal side of ZKCC Chopper and Bonnell's Black Jade cow for ex.) is out of Libby's Black Bonus Bozo and a Black Max cow. He was a 1993 model and looks way better than the Trio Black Bear you have pictured which was born in 1994. I couldn't find a picture but have seen one before.

 Funny how 2 bulls came out at roughly the same time with the same name. Maybe they were fans of the movie, The Great Outdoors, and Black Bear sounded better than Bald Headed Bear or maybe there was a rap song at the time called Black Bear.

DSC Mr Dunk, besides looking extremely straight on his back legs, looks like he should have been the great Simmental bull in clubby pedigrees instead of Meyer 734. That is one good fronted PB Simmental.

Thanks for posting these great pictures. Funny how these bulls are still showing up in pedigrees of today's bulls.

I was wondering if this was the same black bear in Grizzley's pedigree.  This black bear, is pretty danged average looking none the less.

black bear does appear in the top side of grizzley's pedigree.

interesting note is that black bear was bred by B&D Cattle Company. Denny Benoodt & Bill Dwyer.

maybe some one can locate a photo of  black bear?

Weirdest thing..

Page 62 '96 ABS catalog...

Bull MARC Twinners a twin mix...

description: 1/2 Norwegian Red, 1/4 Swedish Friesen, 1/8 Char, 1/8 Maine
28% of his daughters should produce twin calves
Sires large % of choice cattle with 97% going YG 1 & 2.  

Interesting black and white underlined bull, shows his dairy heritage-- looks alot like a composite Holstein/ Jersey.

Photo of the Black Bear bull that shows up more in pedigrees.  It has been suggested that his legs were painted in this photo but I do not know.

I remember these AI catalogues from back then.  They are like the "missing link" from the 10 frame cattle of the 80's and early 90's to todays cattle.  It's interesting to me for a couple of reasons.  First, there seems to be more genetic diversity back then (albeit probably not the best genetics).  Second, there seems to be more pictures of mature bulls (rather than the 10 month old pictures we see today).

Anybody have a picture of Poplar Haven Smithbuilt?  I bought a Maine Break X Smithbuilt cow for my son.  I know he is really old.

Ive posted a pic before couldn't find it.  If someone doesn't post it. I'll dig it up.

There is a pick of fr magic 179x on this site a son.  Solid black while smithbuilt had socks.

listing of bulls on page 2

On another interesting note:  One particular clubby bull from this era, had a dam that was Cub x Cunia...  Isn't that ironic that another clubby bull that just sold this week- from this era-- also has a Cub x Cunia dam--  Q Dog...

How cool would a History of Genetic Trends class be in a college Animal Science program? I probably have a lot of these old books...I always think I might want to go back and look something up! I just designed a sale catalog with some semen on older, hard to find bulls, and it wasn't all that easy to get pictures of all of em! I still have a couple straws of Stinger semen in my tank, and I have no idea if it's worth anything or not. I judged a 4-H show in Illinois back in the early 90s and used a Stinger steer to win the show, so I got a few straws to play with. I don't think I ever used any of it, and there it still sits!

I remember Buck, and I always thought he was ugly. We did have a good Buck cow one time...I don't know how she had any rib at all but she did!

Here's 8 more bulls for you..
Cub
Play Ray
Bronze
Hotrod
Totally Tuned
The President
Barbwire
Mr. A

Someone read the President's description...  and let me know who you think the baby brother is...  WMW I suppose?  Anyone think they could find semen on this bull?

I often wonder what the difference in genetics are, just in this case with WMW's full brother (The President) on the page and I have never heard of a single calf out of him, yet WMW is argueably the best club calf bull ever.

promotion... WMW was bought and promoted by Lautners...  Guessing The President was retained for in herd use only by his breeder..  Say nobody knows what happened to that outfit, probably out of the business like many are that were around then, and many will in 10 years.

clubby bulls definitely have some of the best marketing out there.
