Great looking bull with great cow power top and bottom!!!  <cowboy> did you use him as a yearling at all or will his first come next year?  He could work well on some of the smaller made JPJ type cattle.

He was out breeding cows on grass for 60 days til August 1 then came in to get ready for the fall shows. Should have his first calves the end of janurary from hand breeding cows in April and May. Here is a link to his video:

We are currently looking at a few places to have it distributed by. Won't be able to get it down there til the end of February first of march due to export testing. What company has been the easiest for people to get semen delivered from.

This bull is the real deal IMO. I think he checks more of the boxes than any other bull I have seen this fall.

I saw that bull at Hill Haven in Sept.  I thought he was the most complete, useful Shorthorn bull I'd seen in a long time.  I've been critical of some modern Shorthorn cattle being very far removed from the commercial world, but this bull is what I, as a commercial cowman want. I'd agree with Grant wholeheartedly that he is the real deal.  If I still ran purebred Shorthorns, I'd be all over him.

The Hereford and Shorthorn shows run at the same time at Agribition so I happened to catch the Champion bull class. Myself and the girl I was watching it with had Fire Storm picked as our champion hands down. The calves that ended up winning were nice and I don't mean any disrespect to their owners but that's just how us Hereford girls thought things would pan out. Nice bull!

I think there was a lot of people on the Shorthorn side of the fence that agreed with you. The two calves that were named Champion and reserve, were very good calves, but Fire Storm was in a category of his own. He won the Royal Winter Fair, in Toronto, and I heard people calling him the best bull over all breeds at the show. This bull is pretty exciting I think!

Calves have been born from 93 to 100lbs all have been unassisted. our calves in general have been 7lbs heavier on average this year. No pics way to much mud and feel that it wouldn't do them justice.

Did you find a USA distributor? Can we access his semen in the USA?
If it was easy, everyone would succeed.

I really like this guy. He comes from some pretty awesome cow lines. Congrats on raising him! I can't wait to see offspring from him.
