As one of the color blind commercial men (Black is the only color)  Oakbar recommended this animal to as a bull, if memory serves me right, I think that is important to admit my mistake and say shorthorns are great!!!

Congratulations on your win and will say you have a wonderful set of cows and one of two places we've designated "shorthorn heaven".

Now if you can post the results at the Waverly, IA sale barn, we could maybe sell those roan ones.

They are GREAT and if we can continue to show this to the commercial sector one producer at a time one day we will achieve being #1 <rock>

Mark you could of had a great terminal outcross with ww off the charts. Hey you learned a valuable lesson... so get in the truck and drive to oakbar... hope to god he didnt castrate all of his calves...load his  biggest widest shorty bull  you can find. Put him out with mature bottom end cows next spring and just watch. Fall 2012 send everything to the your feed lot.

I forgot to mention /// retained ownership through great state feed out would allow you to gain a real premium regardless the color. If some of the show guys would bother to read about the program ASA offers they might not be so shyyyy to sell bulls. Did Oakbar mention this program to you last fall???

I appreciate all the interest in this thread.   

Mark, you weren't even one of the people I was thinking about when I commented on recommending "Weston" as a bull although I do remember talking with you and Jacob about him.    Looking forward to seeing you guys again this fall  even though, you never know, that Gus X Myrtle Bo embryo might just be your next herd sire.   Good luck with the pregnancy and the ET heifers in this years calf crop.

Sue, I have to admit that I didn't even know about the program you mentioned until you brought it up.  You can bet I will certainly try to learn more about it!!! 

With the success her first two sons have had,  I may have to breed 'Ol Sugar back to Tonic!    Actually, she cycled late, so if she isn't bred now we may have to flush her to Sonic or Saskvalley Pioneer this fall.   She had a real nicel Shorthorn Plus heifer out of Hannibal this year that should make an excellent cow for someone in the future.  We'll probably have some pictures of her in a few days.   We do have a TM Gus X Myrtle Bo bull  bull calf that really should be used in someone's herd down the road.  We're also anxiously waiting to see spring calves out of  Oakbar Windchester(the bull we sold at the MN State Shorthorn Sale) now being used in the Mike Faulhaber herd in SE Minnesota.

I didn't mean to highjack your thread, just a backwards compliment, I guess.  I think it is great that you had success.  Congratulations again!

Looks like your proving me wrong on the "all show lines can't perform" line. You are doing something right. (clapping)

I'm not trying to prove anyone wrong--I don't hae that motivation.   When I buy cattle, I buy the ones I like and keep in mind what their bloodlines are.   When I breed our females, I try to pick bulls that are not only good to look at but also have the bloodlines to perform.  Most people in my area don't care for shorthorns and like their cattle much more clubby than mine but I guess I'm stubborn enough to think that if you believe in what you do, you should stay with it and eventually you'll either be proven right or wrong.   I have to say, though, that usually when I stray away from my favorite Shorthorn lines it seems like a give up a lot in performance.  JMHO--certainly not for everyone!!

I sometimes think we keep the program in the woods. I know I talked to alot of folks that didnt know that there is no start and stop point.  I think some folks ithin the breed need this type of program spelled out as to what it can do for your bull program. Like Jake could write a article with the positive points of Shorthorn carcass results and shorthorn influenced genetics in the feedlot.  Part of marketing is getting the breed on the same page. Just be prepared - your bull  buyer needs a live calf first.
