Opinions On Shorthorn Bull
« on: September 02, 2010, 07:47:33 PM »
What do you think? He weighs around 650 in the pic at 5 months of age. He's currently a bull, but i might make him a steer this fall. Opinions good or bad, and should i keep him a bull or steer him. Thanks

Pretty growthy indiviudal. Looks like he has some natural muscle. I am not sure though he is very balanced. One picture is hard to judge as it is one view and may not represent him in the best light.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Do yourself a favor and photo this calf in a natural back drop.  Probably a better topped calf then what you have pictured? REtake please with his head turned slightly tword the camera.

I say keep him a bull. We need more loose structured bulls like that.

I'm with you guys. However, in addition to the affore-mentioned, very positive qualities, I think he needs to be just a "tick'' ( or two) more masculine ( remember, early puberty among heifers, and virility among bulls used to be selling points of Shorthorn cattle), with a rounder rear foot ( with a deeper heel).

Like his color. Great hair. Rocket front.
