by far no Shorthorn expert, so not sure about his BW's but what about Red Vision?
I always liked his calves that I've seen.

Not sure if I would use Red Vision for calving ease, he is out of Double Vision, and you can get some big ones out of DV and his sons.  You need frame and no genetic defects, you say...hmmmmm.   CCC Gold Rush is an excellent bull and can be used on heifers.  I bought a bull out of him and I'm  really happy with him.  Also, if you can get the semen, Studer's Prince James is also a very good bull and can give you some very nice calves.

Well, I looked at the picture and decided that she is a really good heifer from what I can see.  Gold Rush would work on her I think...He is the sire of Schrag's newest bull (Deadwood), and also the sire of our new herd bull, DMS Magic Man...Perhaps that is a name to remember, because we think he can sire the right kind of calves when he gets a little older..

CCC Gold Rush is out of  Armstrong Gold, and a Trump cow..He goes back to some great bulls such as Improver 57 and  Rodeo Drive.  If you want to see a picture and learn more about Gold Rush, go to www.diamondmshorthorns.com and look at the Herd Sires page.  He is a very impressive animal.  Also, I encourage you to get in contact with either Dave or Stu McFarland if you are serious about using him.  They are really nice folks and will help you out any way they can.

Hi all. It's nice to see someone that is looking to steer clear of the th plagued sires. Perhaps you should take a look at some truly appendix free sires from Canada

AA 111 I am not sure what sites you are referencing? Where is the sight of the heifer located and what is your sight?
I might have an answer for you once I see her.

Rusty, if ever your north of Manhattan, come look at our Titan calves!

Rusty, 
Not sure exactly what you are looking for, but Saskvalley Pioneer 126P may interest you. He was 2006 Canadian National Champion and won Supreme over all breeds at Lloydminster against many of the best bulls of other breeds. He is TH free, and smooth polled. So far all calves have been polled and all have been unassisted at birth. He's what I would call a moderate framed bull but still weighed 2100 at 25 months and was 2410 at 32 months. We lost him in April . He was extremely sound on his feet and legs and had 46 cm testicles. He was intensely line bred so he should breed pretty true. So far, we are really pleased with his calves. They are some of our very best. We have semen at Hawkeye.

After seeing him in person, I was impressed with WHR (RT?) Spike Junior. He is sired by AR SU LU Golden Spike out of the famed SS Augusta Pride 3127. Spike is a heifer bull used by Cates and WHR. I have used him successfully on heifers but he does downsize a little. I don't think Spike Junior will do much downsizing. That Gold Rush bull would also be a good option; I've seen some good calves out of him.
