Less than 30 days left before the spring crop of Zulu's start!  My fall calves continue to look very good.  Long bodied, muscle expression down their tops with excellent rear quarters, good fronts, the eye appeal I like, too.  Looking forward to spring.  How are your spring '14 calves coming along?

The Zulu heifers are doing well. We pelvic measured the yearling heifers last week and the Zulu heifers passed with flying colours even though they were 9 to 10 months they measured big enough for breeding. I will try to get some photos in the next couple of weeks.
Here is a link to a bull sale catalag for an Angus Sale that also includes 3 two year old shorthorn bulls by Zulu's full brother, Diamond Sergeant York. They are the last lots in the sale. Two of these bulls are 15/16th brothers and all three are 7/8. We are pretty proud to have these full brothers working in such good herds.

Three pretty good bulls.  It's nice to see herds with a real breeding plan.  Evidently this herd has a group of closely related females bred for generations with a purpose.  Most of my 50 head breeding herd is pretty close in breeding and I look forward to the next generation of Zulu daughters roaming the pastures.  The fun part will be to find that next herd bull.  I've got 2 semen tanks full to start tinkering with and you never know what you might find running around somewhere.  I've got a couple ideas.....

Out of both tanks, what is your favorite bull in there? Can you chose just one? My tank is almost full. I look forward to seeing some Zulu calves on here soon.

I don't think I could pick just one, but I can tell you some I am considering.  Of course, when picking my favorite one, I have to omit bulls that I have owned (Big Jake and Lazy D Ultimate Type were the two best breeding bulls I've had in 50 years).

Deerpark Leader 18th is a bull that I absolutely love for productive cows.  Every one I have been associated with was moderate, good uddered, and fertile.  I think JIT would say much the same about his 18th son, Irish Mist.  My Leader 18th calves have come easily, too.  I'm using a Leader 9th son on heifers and have had good luck, so far.  More to come this year.  I am planning a mating of his daughters to Leader 18th for the next generation calving ease bull.  I've always admired the Trump X Nobody's Fool line crossed with Leader 18th.  If I had unlimited funds and time, I'd flush all my Nobody's Fool bred females to Leader 18th.  The Leader 9th son's calves just don't have enough performance, but he works for heifers and that is his purpose.  I know there are supposed to be some other bulls out there for calving ease that would perhaps have more performance, but I've had experience with this one and trust him.   

As far as the main herd, I've got a mating in mind involving some fairly retro genetics, not quite back to the 60's and early 70's, but a popular bull that was extremely correct, heavy muscled, and moderate.  He was considered by many to be too moderate in his time.  I'm not ready to say what it is.  I'll start my experiment this year and see what happens.

Bert Hanson's farmstead was very impressive in the Herd Bull issue ad he ran with an aerial photo.  In the big issues he usually advertised his bulls' having "weight for age."  There was a picture of the roan heifer Steve Torgerson (sp.) successfully showed--she was very growthy.  Bert said his cattle were selected for docility and polled traits.  Shadybrook bulls may have excelled at test station.  Hanson was a trail blazer when most of the breeders were still stuck on the pony type.

Dam: Muridale Estill 8K

and is this Leader 9th?
Thank you
And the last is Leader 4th, just because he is similar to Leon, maybe longer hip to pins?

That is Kinnaber Leader 9th, full brother to the 6th.
Here is an SP thread with more info about them.

oakview, now you have me, and probably Trevor too, guessing about your experiment?
Was the bull who shall remain nameless born on 3 July, 1976?

"Leon" and my Leader 9th son are ET full brothers.  I bought the roan one, Dale Studer bought the red one.  Dale had a pretty good heifer calf in his sale out of Leon and I have been pleased with the limited number of calves I've had out of my bull.  There is a full sister to these bulls pictured on Muridale's website.  I haven't collected mine yet, but plan to this spring.  I don't know if Dale has collected his bull or note.  I will see Dale at the Beef Expo in a day or two and I'll ask.  I'll get back to you on my experiment.  You have the correct year.

Interesting. As far as calving ease sires that have more growth, Id say the whole breed in general is lacking on that part. I was one in 1976 so I have no clue on what bull it is but I'll stay tuned.

Coyote, why did you use Leader 9th on cows that went to Dividend's Impact?
It looks like you did it more than once.
I was interested in Leon and his brother to use on a set of cows I have that go to Sudden Impact. Then I was going to use CCL6th and 4508 and Blizzard. The goal is a more moderate thick dual purpose cow.
Does Impact get at that?

AF Dividend's Impact was one of my all time favorite Leader 13th sons.  He was shown extensively in the early 80's.  I remember him as being very correct, moderate for the day, and he had a lot of eye appeal.  He was an Irish X Dual combination.  I had a Clark son, Admiral Halsey, out of a Foxdale Favoite Robin cow that I showed as a senior yearling the same year Alden's showed Impact as an early spring yearling.  Admiral Halsey was reserve senior champion at Illinois and reserve grand at Iowa.  Herman Purdy judged the Iowa State Fair and we won the pair of bulls class with Admiral Halsey and his 3/4 brother, Monaco Prince.  The good old days!  Honey Dew Big Red by Leggs was the grand at both shows.  I'd have to look it up to be sure, but I think Dividend's Impact was reserve grand at Illinois.  Schrags used him for many years, so you know he was pretty good.  Sudden Impact was from the Margie family, a family of very noted producers and Alden's best, in my opinion.

Anybody ever consider using Columbus any more?  He was pretty moderate, very stylish, and might be useful from a calving ease and milk production standpoint.  He might not be one you'd tie your whole herd to, but would he be worth a try?  For those focusing on the native angle, he could be a little more correct and eye appealing than some of the base cattle being used.  It's fun to have so many options.  I've talked to a few Milking Shorthorn breeders that think he might be a good option to get a little substance back in their cattle.  JIT talked on this site about a Columbus son he used many years a go with some success.

Muridale had a roan full brother to AF Dividend's Impact, AF Dividend's Impact 2, as a walking herdsire. I'm not sure how many cows in the present herd would go back to him.
