I surprised that my Genex rep said that there is a wait for SAV Renown but Resource is available.
They are full brothers or siblings...Renown seems to be larger frame...is that and better CED epds the main difference? Thanks.

Around here it's the bigger frame that is making Renown more sought after.  My Resource calves are far from small in my opinion so I am not eager to go bigger.

I thought you all liked scale-breaking, big-framed cattle in Canada. Thanks so much for your feedback.

I found out at the Genex meeting in Minneapolis this week that Renown is backordered a few weeks (2-4 they said) because he is not collecting as well and there is a high demand. But they have filled the orders quickly.
God, family, and Simmental cattle;  that's what makes life worth living!

That and Resource is one of their best as far as semen production goes so he easily keeps up, even with high demand.

Airgator - scale crushing is great if you aren't paying for the feed.  My cows are right where I want them; ~6 frame and ~1500lbs.  I don't want to add frame.  Some guys do.  My grass sucks so I'd rather add weight via depth, length, and capacity which is what Resource excels at.

Sorry if I sound like a salesman.  No personal interest in the bull.  Just lots of experience and it has been positive to date.

Cowboy,
No apologies necessary. I am glad to get first-hand information.  I don't get to visit sales or shows.
As long as you are not having problems with calving or maternal calving ease that's the important thing.
The epds would have scared me off without your feedback. I really like that day old bull calf out of Resource.  I would like some of those at my house.

3 more Resource sons from the parents place.  I love the skull he puts on them all.

Better pic of the big guy.  28 months of age.  Just finished breeding.  Resources are certainly the easiest fleshing cattle I have on the farm.

his units are falling in STOCK, compared to his brothers!!!  Renown is holding steady... Resource sold units on sirebuyer for $20 the other day!  I think Renown will surpass him.  We've been MORE than impressed with our renown calves!

Haha that's a pretty strong statement.  From what I have seen the Renown calves are less consistent but probably are lower BW.  Pictured below are a couple of random Resource 1st calf heifers from our herd.  No word of a lie, they all look identical.  Not sure how a bull with daughters like that is "falling in stock"  (lol)

Nyk -- are you breeding Resource to your larger framed cows or going across the board with him?  How much is cow frame size influencing the progeny size?  They definitely have a distinct fleshy and easy doing look.

GoWyo - I am using him (or his sons) across the board.  The sons and daughters aren't small in my herd.  My cow herd is mainly Frame 6 and under and 1500-1600lbs mature and my parents are more like frame 6 to 7 (some maybe higher) 1600-1900lb cows.  I don't feel he has downsized in terms of weight or mass at all.  Maybe knock a little leg off of them but I can't seem to find much value in the air underneath the cows!
