General Lee was displayed as a mature bull,So you should be able to contact the owners for a pic.

This is his 2 year old Denver Display.  He looked pretty close to that at the Ohio Beef Expo.  Little larger outline that most clubby bulls.

Thereís something odd about these mature bull pics.  Very different from the mature bull image I see in my minds eye when I think of beef cattle.

I think mature bull pics are somethings hard to come by because it think a lot of people struggle to evaluate cattle that are low in body condition and not fit up. Itís like an instagram model with out her phone filters.

Last year i seen a known bull on a lease out breeding cows in the hills. I wonít say the bulls name but I can tell you if you were not told it was that bull you would possibly not know the difference between him and some random small, skinny, underwhelming black bull. But bottom line his calves we dang good. But if the owner posted a pic of that bull in the shape he was in sales would be definitely go down... lol..

If you are ever in the Midwest, and have time to swing by a major semen collection center like Hawkeye Breeders, Adel, Ia, you can see many of these popular clubby bulls. It becomes pretty obvious to me, why they are promoted mainly by the calf picture of them. I have saw some that are impressive mature bulls, but I have also saw some that you would not let close to your Jersey milk cow. I have saw some that were so structurally unsound and crippled that I had to wonder why anyone would collect semen from them. Like I said earlier, I have also saw some that have matured well. I also like to see mature bull pictures in their working condition. It is at least 1 small step towards the real world.

I would much rather see mature cattle. No guess work needed then. Much easier to evaluate what they really are. Thatís why I like seeing the momma cows on pasture with calves when Iím buying cattle to see what the cow looks like and the bull. We are all guessing as to what we think they will look like in the end at a show.

At some level, I am always impressed at the turnover of bulls of the retailers.
