Do you think WMW produced more 'great' females or 'terminal oriented ones' in his lifetime...?

What about Heat Seeker? 

Heat Wave? 

I find it hard to believe that any club calf bull can be considered 'maternal'- but i guess if you got me down and pointed a gun at my head I'd agree and call WMW the king of club calf mamas- he is the best at producing females for a diamond in the rough. 

Jodi,

IT depends on what you are breeding for. WE have discussed this in the past- your herd is not nor will ever be club oriented. Now, if you read the show circuit you discussed earlier and or look at Lautner's blog you will see good WMW females just seem to click with clubby bulls.  If you were breeding for club genetics you would want a few good Who Made Who mothers in your herd. I  have one in our herd and she is maternal to the T. She catches first stick AI, calves unassisted and milks excellent. She is going on 15 years old and you can see in her picture she looks pretty good for 15. The pic of her was from this past spring '11.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

you are missing the point--  I stated that obiviosly WMW is one of the best female producing club calf bulls that has ever been created...  The question that I asked was...  
Do you think WMW produced more 'great' females or 'terminal oriented ones' in his lifetime...?
and what I just read on another post...  What do you think made more great WMW daughters- average cows, or great Angus ones- was he a cow changer?  I'm going to guess and say that those great cows, which are sired by WMW, are 99% of the time getting their greatness from the otherside of their pedigree.  

If you only knew what is in my semen tank... Carpe Diem, WMW, Captain Morgan, Capiche, D Stuff, Moody Blues, Stainless Steel, Visiouary, D Vision, a Sonny son, and another JPJ son- along with some other stuff... and lord knows whatever else that's gone by now.
