I was really surprised at their dispositions, very quiet.  He is going to be more consistent than Who da Man, I believe, but will probably breed the same. Can't go wrong with anything out of that Ace cow.  Be interesting to see what he does on your Angus cow, both of the ones I bred him to were clubby bred and patterned.

Will see this coming spring how it went. This cow is pretty maternal IMO, was hoping to add a shot of style to her.

Sorry, we kind of hijacked the original post.  CMANGUS, what was his birthweight and composition at birth.  The one we had was kind of light boned and leggy, she's changing and really starting to flesh out nicely, but all of the dam's other calves have kind of been that way too.  We chose Conversation over a couple of other bulls because of the Disposition EPD, but seems that it kind of follows her dam, a little nutty, we have a cow out of her too that is the same way out of Maternal Perfection, so I would not attribute that to him.  I like your bull, not sure how old he is in the photo, but looks to have some performance to him.

He is a 2/2/2017 model.  his disposition has been really good from day 1.  we have a blue chip that is a 1/2 brother to him.. the blue chip weaned off the mom at just over 900lbs... no creep in the pasture.   He was 76lbs actual at birth.  weaned in september at 850lbs...  his mom just does it time and time again.   we have only one daughter out of his mom and she is in my heard and she has raised nothing but heifers and we have kept every heifer out of his sister...I attached a October pic of him and a March pic of him so you can see the development.  also attached a pic from december of 2017 of the granddaughter to his mom...

Decided she was going to stay.  We like the way she is developing, she's a little later maturing, but has a lot of frame and dimension. Excuse all the mud, if has rained here almost every 3 days, so we could barely get hay made this year.
