The angus valley calves come very early, birthweights are on thelighter side even for angus and we have heard good things about calf vigor. I was suprised at the growth so many of them have, they could be a tick stouter but i think they have a lot of potential

I picked Angus Valley out of a large pen of bull calves at weaning time as my favorite.  He was a stud.  Can't comment on his calves, but he looked exceptional at all stages of his life.

For what it's worth, I'm probably going to use both.  May even use International in a flush.

Angus Valley -
Pros: Very consistent calving ease combined with good growth. Daughters have very good udders and are nice cows.
Cons: They could use a bit more substance (depth and width).  Could use more heel.  They have funny head and little ears. Can be a bit straight fronted

Overall a useful calving ease bull, especially mated to more powerful females. Daughters look to be productive cows.  Would be ideal mating for OCC or Rito blood or that type to add some stretch and calving ease.
