Help with some Angus bulls
« on: January 22, 2014, 10:19:21 AM »
I've been looking at some new Angus blood this year and have been hearing good things about these two bulls. Both calving ease and docility. Coleman Regis 904 and Coleman Foundation 972.  Has anyone used them and what are the reports?

I have seen some Regis calves.  They are pretty nice, the only thing I would fault them on is frame.

Thanks I appreciate any comments I can get.  A good friend of mine tried him and likes them, especially their disposition.

If you're looking for good dispositions, I've had really good luck using CC&7 and Hoover Dam.  Both are calving ease and have some grow too.  I've not been around any calves sired by the two bulls you mentioned.  My Select Sires rep says Regis is getting some good calves though.  His only knock on him has been frame size.

I have seen some CC&7 calves and was not impressed with them at all.  Hoover Dam sired by CC&7 I have seen some really nice calves, but again need to watch his frame and use Hoover Dam on large framed cows.

I've been nothing but impressed with the CC&7 calves we've had.  And I really like the looks of the ones in Hoover Angus sale catalog.  I haven't had any issues with frame size with my Hoover Dams and I've had a couple out of some smaller framed cows. My experience with CC&7 is that he adds a little frame. That's not to say that everyone has had the same experiences that I have had with them, but that's why people solicit the opinions of others.
