« on: March 21, 2018, 10:01:49 PM »
Wanting opinions, thoughts and experiences on a few bulls. What do they add/ what type of cow do they click with?

Here I Am, Fu Man Chu, Huff N Puff, and Second to None.


Thanks!

I will have to say that I had to take notice that 5 out of the 10 top steers at the Ohio Beef Expo were sired by Here I Am, 4 out of Monopoly, & 1 Driven 80 last weekend. Angus and SM sire a large % of the heifer Champions.

Use hia on a females with some extra body and rear set to her legs,  and he'll take care of the rest  (thumbsup)

Use fu man chu on a cow with some power that could use a little help structure wise. Huff and puff is making some goojd ones but I haven't used him, so couldn't say what to use him on, same with s2n.

I haven't seen a bad HIA yet. Seems to be very consistent.

Can't argue with success.  The Here I am's are winning like crazy, he's a Walks Alone, so I am afraid of the shoulder on a thicker made cow, and being a pud.  I really like the Fu Man Chu's, I think he breeds the most consistent, for us he has added power, structure and some guts even on rail gutted cows.  All of our Fu's have had huge hips, but have come small and grown like crazy and have a nice mature size.  I have not used Huff and Puff, but he seems to be making some nice ones.  Second to None is probably one of the most underutilized bulls, he's very versatile and seems to be siring good steers and show heifers, I think with more use, you'll see some potentially great ones, all the ones I have seen have been thick enough and have had impeccable structure, just like his sire, I Believe.
Life is tuff, but it is tougher when you are stupid.
