Lincoln Red influence, continued

I think the LR easy keeping reputation is valid. The bull has steadily gained weight since getting kicked off a diet of sweet feed and alfalpha two weeks ago and turned out on pretty exhausted grass. I expected him to go backwards, but not so.

White House Donald is a pic share by me....don't remember the year. Possible 50's.
LR are superb for weight gain.
The problem on my view is the heavy hair that is hardy to shed in some animals as well as big teats that are hardy to calf suckle.
Of course the new lines are minimize these problems.
I own some semen of old bulls.

This is a cell pic off a web site and not a good representation of a way cool Lincoln Red that went from Galbreath I believe to Martindall Shorts In KY-He got fed-but is maybe the most impressive one Ive seen-and hes going on a very good herd of cattle that have never gotten thoer due JMO

not to hijack the esteemed librarians thread but I have long pondered why the Luing has not showed its presence in the contemporary show calf genre...

My experience with Lincoln Reds was positive... I had two cows out of Green Row Everlawn (or everready? Green row sumthin...) and they were superb cows. However I remember as a child Ralph Stirm had some LRs and while they were stout and soggy, they had horrible bags and sloppy sheaths on the bulls.

Yes, depending of bull, we can get outstanding animals or just mongrels without class!

Slow and steady, he's coming along..that hay in the photo is all he's getting..but as much as he wants...same as the cows. I looked his dam over pretty good. She was a beautiful short wide roan with tremendous hip and a nice udder. I'm betting that will carry through from the MGS of this bull- Minn Max Leader- to his daughters. If not, they should marble well for Grassfed beef.
Good temperament on this animal.

Yes, I should call ASA and have them change that. I haven't because I thought they might charge me or something. I guess DMH registers them at birth before the horns are apparent, but it's misleading info, for sure. I believe- but could be mistaken in what I remember- that his dam wis dehorned, although her reg says polled. Her sire is listed as polled although he has scurs. I have a horned Beebe bred Synthetic son of Minn Max Leader- so know he throws horns. The Synthetic (Galloway/Shorthorn/ Tarantaise- maybe some Pharo Angus) is a good calf with much in common with the Lincoln Reddish bull. I got him because the Minn Max daughters are so moderate and nice and because Beebe has bred so much muscle, correctness AND convenience into his cattle.

Mark, #7 is a Blue Grey. I think using a light roan instead of a white Shorthorn would beget more blue. Black calf is the Minn Max Leader son from South Dakota. Minn Max Leader is the MGS of the Red Bull. Dam of Minn Max Leader was Maid of Promise 189th...dam of Maverick ( sire Ball Dee Perfect Count) Cherry Fillet (sire Weston Trademark III aka Filet). DMH had a very nice white bull, son of Leader 6th that I could not afford, but would have been dandy to make Blue Greys with. His name is Minn Snowflake ET. I really liked him.
Note 189th on bottom side of the white bull.

...if I had the ways and means, I would get as many CCL6th derived females from redbulls at YY as I could and AI them to that Snowflake bull...or better yet have the Snowflake bull do natural service- (for epigenetic reasons) Then I might have a herd of roans that were just right for my purpose.
