New Herdsire
« on: March 18, 2011, 07:47:02 AM »
We have recently purchased another new herdsire. Challenger 5X is now in the stud being collected and we will post pictures as soon as we get him home. Challenger's data - EPD's     BW   3.3    WW   59   YW   135    Milk   19    TM   49   ME   3   HPG    13   Stay 14    Marb.   0.11    YG   0.10   CW   68    REA   0.13   Fat   0.01.   Performance data -   BW   95#    WW   768#     YW   1663#    %IMF   2.70     REA   15.61     FAT 0.29. He ranks in the top 1% of the breed for WW, YW, TM, CW EPD's and is currently the #1 YW EPD in the breed. He should prove to be an excellent  power,growth and maternal bull. RW

I'm curious, do you have lines that are growth vs.others that are calving ease, maternal or do you focus on performance in all your herd sires. I'm impressed with the performance of this bull!

Okotoks - This is not a bull that I will use on heifers until he is proven one way or the other. While I am not seriously concerned with his calving ease, I'm not looking for a wreck either. Ideally we would like to combine all of the desireable traits in one bull and have him suit us phenotypically, but those bulls are few and far between. It would be really cool to find the bull that sired calves that hit the ground in the mid to upper 70's, wean off the cow in the upper 700's, be in the 1500's at yearling (bulls) and be competative in the show ring. I see several hundred Red Angus bulls sell a year and have yet to see the perfect bull go through the ring yet. My herd is based on "the girls" and I try to find bulls that will compliment them. I like my girls pretty, sound and stout and probably bigger than most people do. I am not sold on the moderating of the Red Angus cows to the point that they are basically red Lowlines. I'll take a 6+ frame score cow over a 4 frame score cow any day in my little corner of the world, right or wrong it's what feeds my family. My customers still sell their cattle by the pound and look for bulls that will sire calves that come easy and grow like weeds up to the day they sell them. RW

I pretty much agree with that philosophy. When your customers sell by the pound they pretty much want as many of them as they can get!

Dang nab it, Stu! You sure can find the good ones.  Congrats!

Have any Walkerton calves?

Going to see our friends at JK Cattle tomorrow and pick up our new bull, a Huckleberry son.

Be safe as you travel the spring sale circuit.
