Sires that where ahead of their time
« on: December 04, 2012, 07:21:38 PM »
There are a lot of sires that changed their own breed for the better. What about those that did more good 10 years later than they did in their lifetime? For me 734 and Who come to mind. What are your thoughts?

Oscar 711!  Not sure what year he was born but we had a bunch of 96 and 97 model cows out of him that were just ideal cows for today.  In his era, they were deemed too small in stature but you want to talk about deep, broody, soggy old cows that would flat raise a big calf!  His influence is still seen today as daughters and grand-daughters of those old 711 cows are dominating matrons in our herd now.

Aaron , I really thought your post would read: Rocking horse Taylor Made ? I guess for me this is one of the most impressive sire groups to date.   711 must me in grandpa's herd? 
Seriously- taylor made may not be dead or the # bull but definately one that could get over looked.

Yeah, I thought about it, but he is a modern bull.  Granted he is going to get overlooked by many people because his numbers dont read as good as they could.  But with that being said, anyone who has the guts to use him regardless of his EPD profile will absolutely love the Tailor Made cattle as they far outperform his EPD's in every category!  Maybe in another 10 years everyone will agree with us that Tailor Made was a bull far before his time.  (pop)

FYI the high gaining steer out of the 2011 crop was a Tailor Made out of a F! shorthorn x angus Open Range daughter.  He gained 4.65 the entire duration in the lot and brought $1998 on the grid. (lol)

And many of the Tailor Made daughters you saw here have Oscar 711 grandmas.

Don't forget other Shorthorn bulls that fall into that category, as well:Elbee Leader aka "Gizmo", Einmor Marquis, GFS Creole, Byland Mission, GFS Red Cloud 7026, and my predictions for the next group of "sleepers"? A&T Captain Obvious and his sons, His sire aka "Dover", Coal Pit Creek Leader 6th, RS 034 & progeny ( including 329), ARSULU Osage, Derhorn Medicine Man.

The Charolais everyone missed out on was Baldridge Fastrack. Bluegrass will be the "grand Old Man" in a few years. Watch & see.
