With the positive Rumor Mill calf reports I have been receiving, I thought I would take this opportunity to post two pictures of his offspring.  The first picture is a Rumor Mill x Eye Candy x Northern Improvement bull calf that has gained quite a bit of interest; the second picture is a Rumor Mill x Salty Dog heifer calf.  Both calves pictured are out of first calf heifers.

Once again, Rumor Mill offspring will be offered through fall sales and into 2014. For those of you who have introduced Rumor Mill genetics into your herd, I, and the other owners, are extremely appreciative.  As an added bonus, his offspring seem to grow stronger as they age.

Thank you,

Really, really like what that bull is doing. Just good design, IMO. Looks like he'll make some show winners and be practical for the real world.

Thank you, Telos, for your kind words pertaining to Rumor Mill.  We (Blind Badger, Shea Geffert, Bob May, and myself) believe he has and will continue to sire progeny that will not only be accepted well in showring, but also more importantly, in production.  With his genetic make-up, we feel he can be and has been used on a variety of cows, and as I have mentioned numerous times, he is heifer safe.

Thank you,

Just thought I would update on our flush mate to Rumor Mill.  She is still looking amazing and since calving has adopted a set of orphan twins we wound up with.  We didn't encourage her to do this they were just out on pasture with the cows and we were feeding them twice a day and supplementing with creep.  Before we knew it she had snatched them up.  So, she is raising her calf and one of the twins full time and feeding the other twin enough so that we only have to supplement that twin one partial feeding/day.  All of the calves are looking good as is the cow.  On top of all of that she bred back and we should be expecting a calf next spring.

Telos, it is kinda a funny story now, but it wasn't at the time....a little accidental mating.  She is a Meyer Meyer calf.  She isn't my favorite calf in the pasture, but she will darn sure work.
