Trust me B, I'm not hiding.  I've asked the breeder to please keep on cloning and making more.  He will have a new one out soon if not already.  MAB bred back to his momma.  All kidding aside, Mab has made plenty of outstanding show calves.  Including the reserve champion red angus in San Antonio this year. ;)

ClubCalf 316 makes a great point about MAB "He had a kind and gentle demeanor and most everyone that ever worked with him, including myself had a soft spot for him. His great demeanor has carried over into most of his offspring and for many people made breaking a calf fun and easy.!"  I too used MAB last year and his calves were so gentle, a couple came out of the cow almost halter broke.   If you are selling to 9 years olds they need to gentle-- then good.

Mab was a great bull. Few bulls can produce the power steers and true breeding females.
This is a mab x encore/734/6807 at Davis farms in Kingston, Ohio
If we can make more heifers like this, it doesn't matter what semen cost. I'm buying it.
Just goin with the flo never gets you ahead.

Very nice female! I like she has some set to that rear leg and isn't post legged like some of the clubbier females. Looks like she will make an interesting breeding piece.

I will never forget the day brad and myself took MAB to Elgin dr Warner did a heck of a job with him ! he loved nothing more than being scratched under the leg or digging his usual hole. I just think bashing things a person makes a living off of is a little un called for if you were in there shoes would you like the things being said ..and If you wouldn't say it to there face why type it on a computer just something to think about cowboy  ;)

We got the Show Circuit magazine in the mail and I couldn't help but notice all the MAB calves that were on most people's ads to advertise their sales this fall.

I feel bad for you and others that had the opportunity to work with MAB.  I just hate losing cattle, and I know they are going to be gone after their terminal show.  It still sucks.  We get attached to them.

I really don't feel that anyone is "bashing" the bull.  I believe that this is just a really sensitive subject for some of the people that were close to the bull, and that is certainly understandable.

Everything about the show cattle/club calf industry is molded around the pretense of opinion.  It is the breeder's opinion which bull will work with which cow.  It is the purchaser's opinion which calves will be a profitable investment.  It is the families' opinion which calf will match their operation.  It then of course becomes the judge's opinion which calf is the best.  Yes, these opinions are "educated opinions" that are fueled by experience...but in the end they are nothing more than personal preference or opinion. 

I believe that it is very important that we all understand and respect that fact before we ever jump into this deal.  I have gotten my feelings hurt more than once while listening to a judge give his opinion of one of our steers.  I have also gotten some relief from that opinion when I saw the carcass results from that steer that was "all hair", or "wasn't fat enough".  On the other hand, I have also gotten to look down at the ground while shaking my head, and say "he was right". 

Again, I am sorry for everyone that lost a bull that they had an affection for.  The opinions just come with the territory.

Warner is a great vet best there is in my opinion as well as many others

Don't get so butt hurt though for real you people get wound up nobody slammed the bull, did anyone in 4h teach you not to take opinions so personally? He doesn't work in my program they break the bank at 90 days and break your heart at 9 months. It's an opinion and I am not afraid to say it to someone's face just like I wouldn't be ashamed to hear your opinions on said animal

They all seem pretty attached to this bull, I won't buy a MAB calf, I'm to worried about them falling apart and I'm not trying to "hide" this is a forum to discuss agriculture topics relating to livestock
So everyone that is upset about "bashing" the bull that your emontionally attached to and feel obligated to stand up, the cattle industry isn't for the thin skinned someone is always going to have something to say and someone will always have a better calf/cow/bull

If you're watching calves that hit the backdrop, MAB has his share when you think about all of the bulls there are to compete against. His heifers seem to be hitting the backdrop both as market cattle and breeding cattle. Whether or not they will make cows consistently is yet to be seen and I personally will not put the expense into one to gamble on whether or not she'll milk based on my own experiences trying to make cows sired by predominately steer making bulls.

I try not give an opinion on an animal if I have not had any experience good or bad with one personally, now the calves I have seen out of MAB looked pretty good, was just a small sampling of about 10 head and they were all young. I did AI a cow to him this year but she runs on the big side and is sound, just hoping he will add some style along with docile personality, her attitude is fine, just not looking for a head ache either. I like the kids who buy them to come back.



Bulls I can give an opinion on:
Full Flush;(1)Loved him, dog gentle, easy feeding, graded USDA Prime
Friction:(1) loved his look, was a ticking time bomb. Never again.
HeatWave,(5) we had dog gentle to a PITA, most fed well for us.
Unforgiven:(1) Easy feeding, easy going calf, Finished out at 1415, really enjoyed being around people.
Invincible: (2) Easy feeding, mellow, bigger framed, not a mean bone in either of them, finished @1440
DR Who sons (clean up bulls): (2) Easy feeding, not as showy but over all solid, balanced calves.
Forgot one Paddy O'mally: Probably the prettiest calf we had, flashy, little rounded in the muscle, hairy, a touch tight strided, easy to work with.

I will say we selected for fats, not as showy at a young age.
