Bismark or Brilliance?
« on: March 13, 2012, 10:59:57 AM »
Got a really clubby heifer with a little to much throat and not quite deep enough in the flank. i have it narrowed down to two bulls Bismark and Brilliance sexed heifer semen. Any thoughts??

I'd go with Brilliance...seems to put a little more look into them than Bismarck.  Bismarck will probably give you a little more performance however.  For show calves, the Brilliance should tie in a little nicer behind that shoulder too.  Hope it helps...

I'd second Brilliance. Pretty fronted, lots of volume, easy calving.

I'll 3rd the Brilliance vote , have seen a few here and there. Seems they have a longer cleaner front with a touch more style.

I don't have any calves out of brilliance yet but he is what I will be using on my heifers.

I too have not had any calves out of either yet, but my good friend swears by Brilliance and the calves look great.  He will definitely be my heifer bull this year.

Saw Brilliance this past summer on cows... Hands down my vote... Guy is just flat good, really no holes to poke in him I thought.
Impossible as they may seem, you've got to fight for every dream, because who's to know which one you let go would have made you complete
