I saw him in Denver. Looked awesome. The cattle up on the hill by him looked pretty good too.

Saw some yearling bulls in the yards by him and some were down right dogs.

They were pretty bad. Overall I thought the Upgrades looked best in the yards.

I only saw Broker as a calf in November of 2010 when they showed him at Agribition in Canada.  My impression at the time was that he was a bull that would sire some fancy show heifers but I really questioned his ability to sire a lot of bulls that would be highly marketable especially to commercial cattlemen or to purebred breeders looking to raise bulls.

I have only seen a few calves but they seem to be in line with my initial thoughts.  I have really liked most of the heifers I have seen especially as show heifers though I don't think I would want to turn them out in really tough conditions.  I have only seen a couple of bull calves in person but have not been overly impressed though I am sure that there are some good ones out there.

If my primary goal was to raise show heifers he is a Simmental bull I would definitely use.

Those looking to add some Broker genetics to their herd utilizing A.I. at a reasonable price, check this bull out.  He is a full brother in blood to Broker. Super fronted, awesome boned, good haired, and monster footed.  Solid black with a white sheath.  I would say he would put blazes on blaze face cows.  $30 a straw, PM if interested.

From the picture & not seeing this full sib personally he looks like he is put together way differently through his front shoulder junction than Broker & quite abit smaller foot size with less set in his pasterns. It would be fun to see a video. This sib is cleaner fronted than Broker in the picture anyway. JMO.

broker is a absolute beast. No doubt the new steel force of the Simmental breed.

I meant to reply to this earlier. I am working on getting a video. We got semen collected and he was an excellent producer. As far as comparing him to Broker, he is super big footed and massive boned much like Broker. He moves really well and is better fronted in my opinion. He is not as soft as Broker is right now, but he is 15 months younger in age and not as heavy conditioned. His first calves arrive next week!
