FULLBLOOD MAINE WEEKLY UPDATE

Yukon & Slash did not make Ft Worth because of reasons they couldn't control. Here is their ad in the next Voice and Shorthorn Country.

What will the calving be like on Slash? O0
we watched him being born unassisted from my 8s cow pictured below. he weighed 95 lb and calved at 285 days. he has a little shoulder and i would never use him on heifers. based on experience of calving maines since 1969, i expect very few issues with angus cows and get mostly black calves, the same with shorthorn cows except you will have some bigger calves from the cows with more maine and the color pattern will follow the dam  and i think he is a great choice on black maine cows with lower birth weight epd's i e use him on an ali bred black cow then breed the resulting black cow back to a predator bred black bull and you have diversified your blood lines.

easier than heat wave.  plus you will get some females that can breed and milk.

INDEX is the sire of SLASH. He was lightly used but produced some good cattle back in the early days.

Had a full brother to slash born unassisted last night. He looks to be the thickest and most moderate of the 3 brothers. We also had a darco born earlier from 8s.

 How does the Darco calf look? Bull or heifer? I thought Darco had a lot of potential from the Browarny video. By far my favorite bull of all the videos. He was certainly athletic enough and appeared to have excellent internal dimension. Hope you can get a picture up. Would love to see a direct Darco calf.

Very nice. I like his proud head and the way it's shaped. Really great out cross genetics, IMO. I like the fact he is not carrying the Novino and Cunia based genetics that the majority of purebreds carry.

Also, that guy looks to have the rib shape that many Maine Cattle lack. That is what impressed me the most about Darco. He certainly isn't shallow behind that shoulder.

Look forward to seeing him progress.
