Bulls Heads
« on: January 31, 2019, 08:01:06 PM »
I heard it from a few old breeders that when they were selecting bulls all they would look at is his head. I don't know if it is the same now a days as just looking at EPD's or not.
Here are a couple bulls we raised with heads I like.
I used to be a coyote but I am all right noooooooowwwwwwwwwwww!

Maybe the old lessons on cattle breeding for look a masculine head on bulls can again return.
My first view is for lenght and meat cover on back.
Numbers and heads are wast time if the are no meat on the back, deep ribes and long loin!

I'm a big believer of selecting for head shape.  Wide muzzle, hooded eye, nice poll. No long heads, no pug heads.

Like the hindquarter shape and bulging loin on the 6E bull. Brilliant! Both are excellent, deep bulls, well done! Photographs are amazingly even, good photographer and preparation.

All these perfect examples of the type of head you want on beef cattle and you go and ruin in with that long headed mongrel.  Heck hes got about 4 different breeds in him up close.   (lol) Do you really not see the difference, type wise??

I get times change and trends come and go but holy moly that bull is horrible to me.
Progress is not about using progeny differences to change cattle, it is about sustaining the good ones absent self-inflicted problems.

By virtue of the original and currant Marc studies-results and the pedigrees of the majority of performance cattle in the US and some other countries-Enticer is by far the most influential-far reaching Shorthorn bull in the US history of the breed-Wish I had a picture of Goldwalk at a more mature age-he was as stout as alot of the Canadian bulls listed today. As far as being in the background Millbrooke Marc IV, and a couple others deserve a showing too- BUT YEATHUR-Enticer WAS THE HEAD MAN O0

He looks like a giant Wagyu. He must have put the grow in them. With those legs Id wager there was some Chi lurking in the woodpile.
