Both cows are PB simmental, and I'm looking for a PB bull! Sorry I forgot to add that.

We are breeding to Cowboy Cut, Ironhide and Live Ammo from Genex. Ironhide is a half blood. Without seeing pictures of your cows it's hard to say, most of the cows we are breeding have dream on in their pedigree though. I have a WC Lockdown out of a gunslinger x gonsior yikes that I am really happy with it. Those are just some ideas. I bred the Gunslinger cow to Ironhide a couple weeks ago hope she sticks!

Just wondering what they are like? We will be flushing to Broadway, One Eyed Jack, and Uprising possibly. We do like the insight X dream on calves we got, unfortunately all bulls.

Kind of depends, I would think, on what you're wanting to produce... show cattle with lots of hair, etc... productive commercial-oriented cattle... superior carcass traits.... solid color, red/black, baldies...the list goes on and on.

We've stacked Shear Force in our breeding program through the use of several sons & grandsons - really liked my Singletary (sire of Cowboy Cut) calves - daughters have been great, steers were scale-mashing rascals.  But, we're strictly commercial, with no registrations... have no idea if any we've produced would be of any interest to anyone in the show ring.

Upgrade is really consistent but they can have a little leather up front. A Step Up is easy calving and the calves are really clean fronted. Just depends on what you want.

The dream on daughter we have crosses well with anything i put on her. She is deeper sided and moderate size but throws very nice calves.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Gonna self promote a little. This is a 3/4 bull we have collected. He's a loaded up son out of a half blood dream catcher cow. He has great calving ease epds also. Red bulls may not be your cup of tea but he should make them showy. We used his sale catalog pic and never photoshopped it whatsoever . his sire is arguably the hottest bull in the breed At the moment for show ring appeal. We jumped him twice and he froze 300 units of very high quality semen.

Gargan, that bull gets better every time I see him. He is about a spitting image of loaded up if I've ever seen one. I really do wanna use him next year.

I really don't think you can go wrong with One Eyed Jack, A Step Up, Upgrade just to name a few.

Thanks winter springs, I'm excited for his first crop to drop next spring! (thumbsup)
