cant say i know of any issues with him calving any more than any other clubby. he works best on real real deep made cows, and even then might still turn out to be gutless.
Just goin with the flo never gets you ahead.

From my minimal experience Hannibal can have some variance in birth weights. Depending on genetics he sometimes will follow his fathers foots steps throw smaller or average weights but you can get a biggin every now and then. Attached are a couple photos. Brad Hook is the person who you want to P.M. and talk to. He just added a Hannibal heifer that won the Missouri state Fair recently. As the previous poster said the best thing for him to work on is small deep bodied cows. I also attached a Hannibal heifer from the Elite Event. I think he can  be overlooked for females.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

well last night I had to help pull out a huge bull calf that was sired by hannibal.   It weighed over 100 pounds   So I was wondering if he was known for it or if it was just a fluke.

we had a 5 year old calve to Hannibal and it was her biggest calf about 90# heifer.  She had an 80# hairy bull calf and a 75# Qdog bull before that.  I also have a buddy that had two calves last year both of them were 90-95#, but his BW epds put him at +5 for Chi's.
