You are a prime example of a breeder utilizing the genetics available to produce what works for them.  More power to you.

Thanks! I could not be more pleased  to find out what Weston Resource looked like and on pasture to boot!

I confess the way this calf is gaining condition is blowing my mind. I'm so happy I was able to get ahold of him before he was put on a "development ration". Whatever he grows into will be breeding, not feeding.

I love the heart girth.  It is better than I remember.  I liked him back in the day but I didn't remember that much chest.

DMH Mr T is the Resource son. His calves looked good. Now that I see Resource, I may do a half sib mating from Mr T. Its neat that you saw the Weston herd for yourself.

Doc was a friend of mine.  I worked for him a little, I learned a lot.  I had four Weston bulls.  My taste in cattle has changed.  In the 70s I would have liked less front than Resource shows in that picture.  Now that I am in the grass finished beef business I think that is spot on.

Good looking deep bodied bull but I think most of what you see up front is just dewlap.

Yes there is plenty of that but what I am talking about is from the shoulder blades down to just behind the front legs.  In the 70s I would have said he was a little out of balance, now I think that is a phenotype that I would like to work with.  I can put up with a little extra skin on the front.

He has the appearance of many of the dual purpose bulls of his day.  After looking up the pedigree, I see why.

Weston Resource -  45 registered calves,  3 birth weights,  2 weaning weights,  1 yearling weight.   Wow!   No wonder EPD's have a dismal reputation.   No data becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Considering that he only has three offspring born in the 2000's and the rest in the early 1980's (one in 1989) would most of his offspring have not been born be prior to any type EPD system? In those days birth weight sometimes got recorded on papers and occasionally weaning weight but that wasn't very common in any breed back then and those numbers wouldn't have necessarily been transferred through from old pedigree systems to the new ones; not that it would matter without having proper management groups.

Weston Romeo was one of my favourite bulls, I saw him at Weston in 1978 as an aged bull but he still had lots of muscle and very long hip. He was a TPS Coronet Leader 21st son.

Of the four bulls that I had from Weston my favorite was a Romeo son.

Romeo was one of my favorites, also.  For those of you with old Shorthorn Worlds, look up Weston White Count and Weston Independence.  Mike Studer showed those bulls for Doc Nold.  White Count won Chicago and Independence was at least a class winner.  Two more of my favorite Weston bulls, both Leader 21 sons, I believe.
