Fu Man Chu is dead
« on: December 13, 2018, 06:03:05 AM »
Rodgers posted on their blog yesterday that Fu Man Chu had to be put down due to some digestive problems.  They are raising the price to $60.

(snicker snicker tee hee...)

Just to be clear, Wade Rogers is a friend of mine and I am not laughing at the loss of a tremendous industry leading bull.

But Dognabitt knabe... (tee hee snicker....)

I have often wondered why so many of these club calf bulls have such a short life expectancy.

Is it the semen collection cycles being so aggressive, something in their genetics, or just pure bad luck?

Too bad for all involved.  Great bull.  Seems like about 60% of Goretska's steers that past few falls have been FuManChu sired.  That should tell us all something about the quality of his offspring.

For a clubby he was kinda old at 6 almost 7. Will be interesting to see if he gets cloned. Several good sons on the market now too.  Hopefully Wade has a pretty big bank of semen, Im sure hell continue to be popular as hes probably the best all around clubby bull available.

For ANY bull 7 years old is a Methuselah... Most commercial guys I know pound out bulls by the time they are 5 due to diminishing libido, being a pain in the butt to maintain (even the pets dont chase for shat and go wherever they want to whenever they want to) and becoming "cowshmoosher" type big...

Only reason 878 got to be 17 is cuz he was at a stud. Normal cowboys cycle through good bulls as the daughters come into production.
