Here I am
« on: January 25, 2019, 08:58:57 AM »
Anyone else notice the amount of Here I Am calves that were listed as either class winners or second in class in the crossbreds at National Western. I believe I counted 13. Thought? or just looking to much into it?
It's suppose to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great.

That bull is the new Monopoly.  A great deal of the success of ANY bull revolves around the number of cows bred to him.  It is just a numbers game.

I know a lot of producers that are using Here I Am almost exclusively. 

At first (maybe 9 months ago), I kind of snickered to myself and thought "ya right".  But then I came to realize that there are actually that many cows being bred to him.

I haven't seen every Here I Am steer of course, but the ones I have seen have been powerful and sound...a combination that can be elusive for sure.

He throws them hairy, big hipped and as consistently good structured *for clubbies* as anything these days.

I'm a big fan. My only complaint is some of his calves can be tighter gutted.

Good point. 

Everyone wondered if there would ever be another Heatwave too.

It all comes down to numbers in my opinion, and the numbers are growing on this one!

Many of the top promoted bulls go back to Heatwave. Most of the winners also have support from some of the best.Getting top cows flushed or bred to the top bulls helps the % of great ones. Many top bulls make the most profit when they are no longer available.There are still people that want to buy Meyer 734 semen and it is not from his promotion picture.

Yea the more bred to the better chance of there being good ones out of those breedings, but still very amazing of how many choose to bred that way.

I've seen him a couple of times and I really like him. He's not a small bull for a clubbie bred bull. Gretcha Some was there at the same time and I personally preferred HIA. JMO for what it's worth.

CAB, just curious about his body depth and spring of rib.  All the one's I have seen seem to follow the mother in regards to center of body.  I know he has Full Flush in his pedigree and they have a tendency to be tubular shaped.  Wade's recommendation was deep bodied Angus cows.

Very impressed with HIA calves this past year at many of the majors across the country. Yet to be seen if his calves can compete in the Texas slick steer shows. I think the look will be there, but not enough power and depth when the hair comes off.

I think that Wade is exactly right about kind of cow he would work best on. He's thick and a little tighter made, larger framed than most of the clubby's. Just like all of em, he'll need the right type of cow and there are a lot of cows running around that need him! Meaning they are too small IMO.

Maybe a little off topic, but does anyone know the name of HIA's full blood sib? Ty Webster had some juice on him for sale on one of his sales.
