Saw some Marquis sons in Argentina, not impressed me. Have semen from a Marquis son, used it, also not impressed me. Isn't our cattle type.

I would have to say that he is one of the better bulls I have used artificially.  I have 2 daughters in production, both 2010 models, and according to the ultrasound they are a.i. bred for 2013 which impressed me.  Sold a nice son to a commercial guy in wyoming in 2011 and also sold the renegade bull to JT Moreland Farms in OH this past spring.  I ai bred over half my heifers and a bunch of black cows to Renegade.  The only thing that makes me mad with Marquis is that I got a stocking legged bull calf out of him and my solid red Titleist 441 donor last year!  :o

Say you had 3  bull calves out of that mating.  Marquis x 441.  2 solid red and 1 red w/ stockings.  Being that all 3 calves have the same genetics, is the one with the stocking any more likely to throw calves with stockings that his other 2 full brothers?

I have a Marquis 86G son in use as a herd sire now.  I LOVE the Marquis line-- they are flat out working for me. 
My heifer group this year that are by the Marquis bull are all solid dark cherry red and all look the same-- when they stand at the bunk, you would have thought they were all the same calf over and over.  This is the best heifer group I have gotten from this bull so far.  I used him this summer on all of my heifers- I have never had to worry about BW from him. 
I do have 3 of those bred heifers for sale if anyone is interested.

My Marquis bull fits the profile as some of the other breeders comments-- stout, muscular.  Dale has even commented that my bull looks a lot like the old Marquis except mine is solid red.
