I like to look at them mature to see how they hold up and to see how they finish out too :)

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.
Experience is what you get when you don't have it when you need it.

Close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and bad breath!

I would much rather see mature cattle. No guess work needed then. Much easier to evaluate what they really are. Thats why I like seeing the momma cows on pasture with calves when Im 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.

ACA #315460

His dam was a Mayers 734
He was pictured for semen sales. select sires I think 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
