Breeding suggestions
« on: January 08, 2016, 05:01:53 PM »
I know these threads are pretty common on here, but I'm wondering what your suggestions are for this young cow (due with her 2nd calf in 3-4 weeks). I'd like a bull capable of producing a marketable steer or heifer calf. She is a complete out cross to everything-sired by Halfmann R588 ( red angus ) and the dam is a red / white spotted baldy cow with brindle markings who came out of a Holstein / Jersey cross cow. I'm open to proven bulls, or any "hot new" bulls that are/will be on display in Denver.
Thanks for any advice!

I should mention I'm looking for clubby bull suggestions. Her main weaknesses in my eyes are a weak topline, and lack of muscle expression in her rump.

We have an old cow in our herd very similiar. The best results weve gotten is from breeding her to something a bit more maternal and then using high percentage maines on the resulting offspring. We are expecting three of her daughters this year to Daddys Money Jose and Suh. Will know in february how those calves come.

Unstoppable would be at the top of my list.

I really like the look of that Unstoppable bull, and I've often thought that something CharX would be good to make up for the dairy in her background. She is currently bred to a Charolais bull Wrangler (not clubby, but still a char) so I will see how that works with her. Maybe this would be better to ask in a few weeks after Denver, but do you clubby guys think Rock Star (the funky colored new bull headed to Denver) would be a good match? I didn't see any MAB suggestions, so I'm gonna guess not?
Thanks for all the suggestions so far though! I appreciate them all!
