I briefly used the shorthorn SUDS bull. He had thick calves but they were big bwt,s on my cows.

The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

What bull sires the thickest calves you have seen??

Thickest calves we've ever raised were sired by Perfect Timing (Full sib to X ray), Double Vision, and RB Eagle 148 (makes GREAT cows, IMO)..does anyone know what 148 semen is going for now? We have a few units and we haven't used him in probably 5 years..didn't know if anyone else was still.

That is kind of tough. The cow contributes to overral thickness as well. I have also seen super thick bulls bred to finer made females and the calves don't carry as much bulk.

Heat wave, Heat Seeker, Double Vision, few that I have seen that are super thick.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Funny how thickness can sometimes be confused with "hairy" and "fat".

Not trying to stir anything up here...but are you implying that those of us who have named sires that are popular club calf bulls don't know what thickness is?  If bulls like Heatwave and Heatseeker only sire hair and fat, then why do many steers out of these bulls do so well down in Texas and other southern states where slick shearing is the way to go? 

Thickest cows I've ever had were sired by RB Eagle 148 and WHR Sonny 8114.  The 148 daughter didn't have a lick of hair, but she beat some high dollar heifers, and we bought her at market price or below.  Her second calf was a reserve champ at a county fair to another steer of ours that we showed....which was a calf out of the Sonny daughter..this one has a ton of hair, keeps her condition on air and water, and breeds back the first time every year.

 I've always liked 148 dtrs, just have to watch how much set underneath their back wheels have.

Hard Core worked real well on my cows. Course the cow had 50% of the results too.

I have seen a couple thick Alias steers but I think sun seeker does a pretty good job to.
