Thoughts on future breeding?
« on: September 15, 2016, 03:12:03 PM »
Cow is a Jimmy the Greek x Ang/Meyer.  Thought about using Salty dog, WMW or Gunsmoke. Curious to see what others may think about different bulls or the ones I have listed. Also attached a picture of her as a calf.

Really stout cool looking-Seems like 3 different types-salty Dog would probably be the most massive and rib-but more shoulder too. Who would make a really good female.Dont know enuff on the other bull. I'm wondering if DR Who might not be kind of a combo of both those types. This might be off the wall-but i keep seeing really good heifers out of Surround Sound-seems to be a sleeper with great ones that just keep surfacing-out of a lot of different types of cows.O0

A bull for a cow of her statue that was used a ton to make some beautiful females was Hannibal. He is a WMW son. He will add extension and little more length of body and some leg. Many times when I see someone take a cow that is compact and super stout and breed compact super stout bull you can get some freaks that are cripples.Salty do when I saw him at Expo wasn't huge by any means. I really thought he could work on cows like her. Eye Candy, Troubador, Sin City, I-80 are a few I would consider. The more I see I-80 females the more I like him. Ali seems to track with the cow and I never saw Ali as a cow changer. I-80 puts a look in them like WMW use to. Just my thoughts. Sin City would give you a fuzzy large made calf. But be considerate of birthweight on some of the bulls you choose. Even though I have heard people say the good one's come out the side, i am not a fan of c-sections.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Thanks for your input! I appreciate it. I was wondering about front end structure with some of these bulls but I think I-80 would be a solid choice. Thank you
