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.

Just because I like this thread and want to keep it going. This is a bull we bought from Fair Cattle in California. His name is Humdinger he is a MossyOak and he is 15 years old and still breeding cows.
Title: Re: Mature bulls
Post by: Gargan on June 03, 2019, 08:03:15 AM

I would have guessed 5. Impressive! What's his dams side?

Man hes cool looking-probably 200 years old in people years-the only other bull I know of that made it almost that long was Dales bull-Wildside O0
Title: Re: Mature bulls
Post by: PCJR21 on June 03, 2019, 07:58:44 PM
ACA #315460

His dam was a Mayerís 734
He was pictured for semen sales. select sires ďI thinkĒ did not want to use him because at the time they had so many MossyOak bulls. His offspring BW was around 80lbs
Probably have had 300+ of calves out of him and only pulled 15-20

We actually bred him back  to his daughters because he did such a good job building females

 Attached is a picture of one of his Daughters only one I had handy

Todd Fair/ Fair Cattle still has straws of him

I try to make it through the Iowa stud barns once or twice a year and am often left wondering if anyone actually looks at these bulls after their promotion pics. While some big names are always down right disappointing, there are always a couple lesser or non promoted bulls who look really good that you never end up hearing anything about.

Times have sure changed, too. I think back to the 1990s when you'd run into a highly promoted cubby bull out on lease in some obscure pasture and be blown away. Now you often have to ask how old they are because you're eyes can't believe they're a "mature" bull.

Mature bull pic to keep the thread rolling...

He's a Bonanza son that appears to be putting some pretty functional daughters in the herd. I've used him to create some half sib x half sib matings to wind up some pedigrees and so far things look to be working well.

This is the first bull I've owned and bought him last year to sweep up after AI. Just thought I'd throw him into the thread when I had a mature pic. He's 32 months. Think he's grown well, although he isn't tall by Irish standards. He is standing a bit funny but he wasn't for moving. Bred from Sprys Patents Ace and an Irish bred cow (from a bull, Bushypark Enda 4th).

This guy has served us well he's 6 1/2 in this picture and still getting it done like a 2 year old.  Throws good heifers and pretty decent steers with some performance to him.  He's a Sooner out of Wisnefski's 2012 Reserve Champion Maine at Denver.  Disposition is an A+, still can walk up to him, throw on a halter and load him, but is an aggressive breeder.

Very nice!! Good bloodlines too!  (thumbsup)
Looks like my herd bull, but mine has more power ;)
Mine is super sweet too.... his name is low and slow for a reason  (lol)
