Red Baldy Simmy bull calf opinions ???
« on: August 10, 2013, 07:41:51 PM »
Can't decide what to do here...... this calf is out of my favorite cow and a bull I own a full brother to. This red calf would be an outcross to everything I've got on the place except for mamma , and she's not getting any younger ! My question is , do I keep this calf back , is he good enough ??? I'll post a picture of his dam and the bull I would be replacing with him to get some opinions. Thanks in advance !

Here's a picture of his dam , she's sired by the old Leachman 600 U Bull. And also the bull I would be replacing with the red baldy calf.

Yes I may sell the black baldy bull if I keep the red one back , he's sired by Optimus Prime. Scott - thanks a bunch , the red calf is also out of an Optimus Prime son.

are you sure you can use a red bull? Real good calf but  I agree on the hind wheels. And thats a really goodlooking cow:she looks a little more correct on the hind legs than the calf-but it could be the calfs  O0picture

Mark its the pictures , he's standing way goofy on rough pasture. I apologize for not getting better shots of him. He's sound tho , no doubts there.

Thing that I like best about the red bull is that he has a darn good looking mother...If you could make 100 heifers like her, he'll be a good one!

Do you have any pics of the black bull at a similar age? That's the comparison I'd make and ultimately the determining factor.

No I don't have a pic but I remember , the red bull is deeper bodied and a touch stouter in the bone dept.
