Will do. The interest has been phenominal in the bull from Canada tyhrough the US and into Mexico. We have been approached about selling limited exclusive semen packages on him and honestly haven't decided if we will do that or put him on the open market. We have a limited amount of semen on him now but I may have to pull him out of the pasture and take him back to the stud if we put him on the ipen market. Thanks for the comments and interest. RW

It's amazing how much Red Angus cattle have improved since I was around them a little bit back in the late 80s.  I would like to give some of them a try.

RW - I went back and looked at the sale catalog and I think you got the steel of the day (doesn't matter what you paid). I think this bull can go where most Mulberry sons can't. Though I do have some experience with Huckleberry on heifers. I think Walkerton would throw a different type. I bet he would make a great choice for the Shorthorn crowd to use on heifers. Congrats on a future great bull.

I agree, that looks like a shorthorn improver to me....

I think the bull has alot to offer to the beef industry as a whole, who knows there may be a daughter of his show up in a club calf sire some day ;) RW

Well if you do decide to put him on the open market I assume that you will post it here, also remember to leak which stud he is at, so next time I go down I35 or I80 I can stop if for a peak..

Road Warrior, he looks like he was definitely worth the trip! He looks like a tank! Excellent bull.
His sire, Mulberry was about 20 miles from where i live when he was being shown, and he was the best RA bull I ever saw. I used Mulberry to flush two of my best solid red Shorthorn donors and I have to say that I have been very impressed with the results. I have also sold two sets of these embryos to the US.
Walkerton looks very similar to his sire at that age. I think you might have a great one there!

Very likely if we put him back in stud he will go to Hawkeye East for a short period of time and then go back out with cows again. We will probably "bring him out" in Denver unless we get a wild hair and decide to go to Louiville this fall. We did have him collected at Genex Hawkeye West on the road trip home.
 JIT - Thanks for the comments, I worked the Perks dispersal last weekend with Bryan and he described him as the best son of Mulberry to hit the ground ( I was eves dropping on a phone call while we were out looking over the sale offering) We are still working out the promotional details but we should know what we are doing by this weekend.

Hey RW -- if I were to store that cane of Walkerton long enough, does it revert to the HOLDER???????????????
 hehehe

He'd be the bull I'd use if I wanted to get some red calves, even looking at him in the trailer that day all wrung out he was impresive!

We'll be testing him for you in a few weeks on 411 -- she's feelin frisky this morning still!

Later -- Terry

the top bull looks great! how is his mother bred and do you have a picture how does she milk and udder structre(pm that info if you would like)


I think the black angus industry needs a revamp like the red has done, red angus i have noticed a change and they have really added more power and bone to their maternal traits really an intriguing breed.

I wouldnt mind breeding this guy to some angus heifers, think he could add some bone and style and still be able to keep the depth of body and maternal traits
If it don't fit, force it.
If it breaks, it needed fixed anyways

Very impressive RW.  The first one looks like a cowman's type of bull.   (clapping)

I don't have a picture of his dam at this point, she is a Glacier Logan 210 daughter ( another reason I bought the bull) Typically they are exceptional milking cows with excellent udder structure. I'm pretty sure that she fits this model as Bryan is pretty fanatical about that. I'll see if I can get a picture of her from him. RW

RW,
how did the Perks sale go?  Where did Perks Red Robin 41R go?  I really like the looks of her.

The sale was HOT! 41R brought $6500, I'm not sure where she did end up going. I was on the phone buying from start to finish and didn't catch where some of them ended up going, my man on the phone was contending bidder on her and I was busy with him and nissed who got her. High selling lot was the full sib to Super Vision at $13,000. RW

Hmmm, I thought she might be a five figure cow, that may have been a pretty good buy.  I might see where she ends up, I'm sure they'll flush her down the road.  She's a spittin' image of my current red donor.  If I could get those two both in a pedigree, I could make some really consistent beautiful red cows.
