shorthorn heifer safe bull
« on: August 01, 2018, 01:12:21 PM »
I'm looking for suggestions for a heifer safe shorthorn bull to use on my sons shorthorn. I'm looking at DMH Cherry Fillet, Ash Valley Right Choice, Kane Kaptain, and a shorthorn plus bull JFK Mindbender. Has anyone had any experience with any of these sires?

How is she bred? Id stay away from mindbender on a hiefer-Kane Cptain should make show hiefers and be safe-depends how thick she is-We have seen a number of good calves out of Lanes Mr Colt (Will on here) hes Ce used on heifers and was competitive showing as well as producing showy calves    http://www.steerplanet.com/bb/the-big-show/shorty-hf-bulls/     300000 plus people have read these 30 pages re shorty heifer bulls-its just down the page from this-You might as well too O0

She has studers on the sire side, and k Kim on the dams side.

Mindbender- I wouldn't use him on heifers. I also wouldn't use his sire Starburst on heifers.

Cherry Fillet- Small calves with some good growth. They make terrific cows but they don't have a lot of show appeal. If you want a live calf that will grow and make a good cow he should be a solid option.

Right Choice- I haven't seen much out of him that really do much for me.

Suggestions

Hot Commodity- He's fairly expensive but he's producing winning show cattle and there aren't many bulls available to the public that can say that.

Gilman's Envied- A solid heifer safe bull. Calves have a lot of growth and some eye appeal. Some of my picks at Studers have been Envied's.
