Two year old Galloway heifer pictured with 2 week old heifer calf at side.  Thinking about maybe breeding her to a clubby bull.  She is about 950 lbs now.  Put together pretty decent.  Could use a little more width.  Structured just fine, little sickle hocked.

Suggestions?

Something with a small bw.  She's only a second calver...
Probably One and Only so they come smaller.

BW shouldn't be an issue.  Typically Galloways have a large pelvic area for their frame size, so 100 lb BW shouldn't be a problem.

I'm thinking if she is only 950 lbs now, I would be affraid monopoly would make her calf  REALLY small.

What size are you looking for?

I was going to say NP. I think he's a bull that is consistent and is under used

If she has plenty of thickness id try maybe I-80 if you are worrying about birth weight

I would seriously try one and only i was told by Chris last fall to breed that one to a small/moderate female and that he will throw a real good front and topline in them and should breed larger than most clubby sires. Im breeding 3 next year to him that are half blood angus females that are 1050 mature and will only be on their second calves

I am sure that would work, but I would want the resulting calf to be an outcross.   ;)

She should mature out in the 1100-1200 lb range, depending on her condition, frame 5.  So One and Only would still work?

I wouldn't worry about her being 950lbs now. Most of my cows are those smaller 1100-1300lb type cows and they can handle anything we throw at them. She's got a good front end, ton of hair, good leg set. If she were mine, I would probably throw a bull like Sunseeker at her. He'll put a ton of thickness in one and add a ton of bone. She's already got a ton of hair and with sun seeker I wouldn't worry about having a midget framed calf. Another bull I like on her (If you're not into THC) is Who himself, although I wouldn't doubt you could breed her to damn near any clubby and get a good calf from her.

If they cant have a Monopoly for a 2nd calf then we might have some issues. She has the size, I wouldn't be afraid of anything clubby.
