Thanks for all the photos/info you've been able to provide WinterSpringsFarm. Really looking forward to breeding to him this spring. Any recommendations on what type cows he is working best on?

I spoke with the breeder this evening. He says he is adding lots of front 1/3 extension, lots of middle and great hair.

Of the calves I've seen in person the depth and spring of rib is great, and the heifers are the kind to make great cows.

We had our first Shell Shocked this weekend. A little bull calf, 280 days gestation, 58 pounds. His dam is an Upgrade x Club King 2nd calf heifer. He is one of the smallest calves we have had! His face is very long, not sure where that comes from.
Our next one is due in May. Another Upgrade sired female.
God, family, and Simmental cattle;  that's what makes life worth living!

Had my shell shocked last night....a deep cherry red bull calf >:(

I haven't weighed him yet but id bet 60lbs. He came backwards and if I let her go she probably coulda had him herself, but the outcome woulda been different I think. Will update later this morning with pictures.

The calf was 65lbs, and I'd say he is built like a calving ease calf, kinda slender and long. Remington Secret Weapon is a documented carrier of the red gene, so red is an option on some calves I suppose. As for the white, he has a dot on his head and some white at his navel. His dam is a brockle face with some white on her belly.

I will be using Shell Shocked on some heifers this spring, as I believe he is calving ease.

Thanks for the pics WSF.. How do you like the calf's look other than his color? Haha. Do you have any more due this spring?

This calf is from what I'll call a more "common" type cow. So as of right now the calf looks just ok. The other calves I have seen out of Shell Shocked have been pretty awesome though. As for red, I like it....just wish it was a heifer. Lol

I do not have any more due this year. But will keep you updated as this calf matures.

Lucky enough to purchase the first Shell Shocked daughter to go to auction at the PA Simmental Spring sale last Saturday. We planned on purchasing a different heifer from Greg Stewart, but were blown away by the width and structure of the Shell Shocked. I've attached some pictures. She makes our yearling heifers from the Hudson Pine's sale look small..

That's awesome OEF Simm. I talked to Greg that morning because that heifer caught my eye. I am going to be breeding two heifers to shell shocked next week. Any more pics would be awesome even if its in a PM.

Here are a few i took yesterday. Hard to believe she's only 11 months old... She's in the middle of the last picture between our HPF Sazerac x TKCC Classified heifer and a bred heifer from Pine Creek Show cattle.

We had a Shell Shocked bull calf born December 2017, weighing 80 lbs. He's solid black, out of a long, tall, solid black purebred Simmental cow that goes back to STF Dominance, Beef Maker & Dream On. This calf has a great attitude and a lot of style, so we look forward to showing him. We have another Shell Shocked calf due later this year & I'll probably AI another cow to him this month.
