Lowline Bull. This is no sissy bull
« on: May 20, 2009, 05:50:38 PM »
This bull weighs 1590 lbs and stands 48 inches tall at the hip. The largest calf born to date weighed 59 lbs. It was out of a 1750 lb Santa Gertrudis cow. This is a real heifer bull. Adj weaning weights on first calf heifers are at around 500 lbs. Go fishing come calving time.

Semen is available on this bull for 35.00 per straw, certificates are free. This is a real  heifer bull and totally Angus genetics. I have never seen anyone unhappy with their calves.

The adjusted weaning weights are no joke.   I've never used Nova, but my Lowline bulls have sired calves with both adjusted weights & actual weaning weights over 600 lbs.  And that's without creep & on mostly fescue.  My Percentage Grand Champ Lowline Angus Bull at the American Royal had a 205 adjusted over 650 lbs.  Their performance will surprise you, especially the Doc Holliday's. 

Cool news on Nova... I just looked at his pedigree... I've got 5 Doc Holliday embryos out of a donor that is a full sister to Nova's sire... Interesting.

They are a breed of cattle. Pure Angus genetics. Every full blood animal is DNA tested to be sure it is pure genetically  from the original Lowline Angus herd which came from Pure Aberdeen Angus Cattle. A lot of people think these are mini cattle. There not miniature cattle. They are smaller but just like most other breeds you can breed for the size you want. They are very efficient converters of feed or grass. They cross very well with most breeds and the better bulls make excellent heifer bulls. I sell a lot of the bigger bulls to commercial cattle people. They like them for various reasons. Maybe there cow size is to large and inefficient. These bulls will bring the size of your replacement heifers down and increase their efficiency, in most cases. It will allow for an increase in numbers of higher quality cows on the same acres, which means more pounds of beef to sell on the same acres. What a concept, pounds of beef per acre.

 We used your bull, Doc Holliday, on some of our cows. He's a very impressive bull. I am confident from what I have seen that our Doc Holliday calves will be real performers in the show ring and the pasture.

 I really like the Sherman lines. I am using a bull right now on some Santa Gertrudis cattle that's a Durbin son which is a brother to Sherman. His registration number is FM3993 he is a very impressive bull. 49 inches at the hip and longer than Nova.

Since you have 2 sons, it sounds like you really like Brambletye Arunta.  I've always liked him myself & wondered why more of his genetics weren't running around.   

I had a Mugga Piaf (Arunta daughter) daugher that was sired by Kintyre Dundee (Doc's sire) that was really nice.  Her 1/2 sister was Res. Grand Champ at the NILE.  I retained flush rights on her when I sold her, but she's changed hands again & I doubt that the new owner is going to let me flush her without a lot of headache.  But, I'm excited to see what happens out of these Doc Holliday X Fidelity eggs.  Crossing Doc Holliday with an Aurnta daughter could get interesting, as Doc seems to be working well on Roulette daughters (Arunta grandson) & Dundee is proven to work well on Arunta daughters.           

Also, not sure if you are aware, but I'm selling imported semen on Murrumbong Roulette, who I already mentioned is an Arunta grandson, for $15 per straw.  I think he's a highly underrated bull, that is also 48 inches tall.  I know the Chapman's have some nice Roulette daughters in their herd & I've had some nice Roulette offspring here myself.  Roulette kinda got lost in the shuffle, with  the large mass of imported genetics coming over in the last few years, but his daughters are super nice & they are excellent producers, so I look for him to make a comeback.  He will sure put a sweet front end on his offspring too.  Anyway, I wanted to mention him in case you might want to add more Arunta genetics to your herd.

Thanks Larry!  I'm interested to hear how they turn out for you.
