Hot Commodity or Saskvalley Yesterday
« on: April 18, 2017, 05:56:22 PM »
I'm debating on breeding this Damn Proud x Ace of diamonds heifer to Hot Commodity or Saskvalley yesterday. She is super sound, huge middled, and has a lot of base width. My only complaint is that she could be more feminine. I think a good maternal bull would do her some good. I want to stay pb shorthorn and have showable calves. I have a Hot Commodity daughter that is pretty nice, but I'm wondering if yesterday could be more Feminine/ maternal yet. Any one have any input or experience with Yesterday? Thanks.

There have been varying reports on some pretty big calves out of Yesterday-and from what Ive gathered he isnt very big-If you have Hot Commodity-my choice by all means-I would not use Yesterday on a an American (US )  show heifer  O0 O0

We just sold a Hot Commodity out of a first calf heifer for big money off the farm this spring. Best calf we've ever had.

I am a major HC fan also. The first ones we had, I thought "man I have messed up" they were really small. Seems like at about 3 weeks or so they really take off growing and filling out and then you know you have something. I think HC is a bull that can produce females and bulls both, that are worth keeping.  The two purebred bulls I go to for virgin heifers is HC and KOLT Kane Nitro.

For us he isn't so much a cow changer. If you have a good heifer or cow, the calf will be good and likely better than its mother. He adds bone and muscle for us on a pretty consistent basis. Structure has been fantastic. Not always the most hairy calves, but what hair they have is nice. 

First time I've ever sold a first calf from a heifer for 20k+ in my life so I'm a little bit of a hardcore believer now.
