Hereford Fever?
« on: August 26, 2016, 12:05:09 PM »
So Cattle Visions carries a bull named "Hereford Fever" and he's got me curious. Anyone heard anything about him? I can't find anything anywhere about him! Here's his link!

Also, which Hereford bulls are y'all using this year? I'm looking to add some power and belly to mine.
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cattle and that's pretty much the same thing as far as I'm concerned!

Simmental and SimAngus bulls available year-round!

He's bred/owned by Capatske Cattle in Ellsworth, Wi. I don't know much about Herefords but  I've seen him in person, really nice bull.
Facebook link with info on his bulls and contact info as well.

From the limited number of calves I have seen, NJW 73S W18 HOMETOWN 10Y ET will add some depth/belly.

When looking for a show calf sire, I tend to scan the show results at hereford.org.

You might want to consider CHAC Mason 2214, DKF RO Cash Flow 0245, or RST TIME'S A WASTIN' 0124.

This year I used KCF BENNETT INFLUENCE Z80 and R Leader 6964, but I wasn't as worried about producing show cattle.

Mason is easily the best bull I have ever cared for of any breed.

Streamline Genetics, Gene Source, or you could call GKB Herefords directly. When we sold Mason to GKB, only they and Streamline had semen, but more distributors may have it now that he is so popular. I also have some on hand if you can't get ahold of any those other ways.

Thanks for all of the replies everyone!! I bred every one of my Herefords to Hometown, so I'm glad to hear he's a good one! I bred mine to Time's A Wastin' last year but can't find any more semen! I loved my heifer calf I got out of him.


Anyone have thoughts/insight on these guys?

I bred 5 cows to the bull custom made this spring so in February and March I can tell you more.  I haven't used the other bull so I won't be any help there.
