Here is our next Angus herd bull. He is a Connealy Thunder out of a Lutton cow. Born 3/2011.  I snapped this with my cell so not the best.

My 9 y/o is showing him. 

Very nice looking! That's good your 9 year old is showing him. Let me know how he does!  ;D

Here are our two calves. 4Z was born Jan 6th  3 days late at 82 lbs from a MVF VRD Dateline heifer . He was larger framed than I expected. 19Z was born Feb 10th  6 days late at 50 lbs from a Youngdale Touchdown 36M heifer. I know some of you like these 50 pounders and I will reserve judgement until weaning but I think they are too small. There is no reason why a 1200 lb good conditioned heifer can't have a 75-85lb calf unassisted.

Nice looking calves! Will be interesting to see once they get they going! Thanks for the pictures!  <beer> What are your plans for the 2 of them? Are you going to show them or just sell them at weaning? Keep me posted how they progress and if you think about it would love to see updated pics.  ;D

Calves look great. I would say they look typical for the Thunder calves I have seen. I too think 50 lbs is too light but then again it is a live calf.

Thanks for the compliments on the calves but I think they are fairly ordinary. Our Soo Line Kodiak 9195 and Mercedes Benz calves out of heifers are better groups. 4Z has potential to make a bull, as for future plans, we will probably keep them and feed them out.
