thoughts on this simmental

Purchased this female a few weeks back, what's everyone's thoughts on her? She's a nov 2012 upgrade. What would you recommend breeding her to down the road?

Wow! She takes an awesome picture. Wish she was at my place. Others on here prob have better breeding advice but I'd strongly consider Make IT Rain if she were mine.

I used Upgrade on some Grandmaster heifers this spring. Ill let you know in March if that way worked. I love Grandmaster cows.

I'm going to STRONGLY second Grandmaster with her being a heifer. You would then have a Upgrade / Grandmaster offspring that could go any direction with Dream On influences if you want. 
My second choice would be Combustable or Uno Mas.  Have been absolutely impressed with Combustable and Uno Mas calves I saw this year.  Sunset Simmental in Oregon used them with great success.  I believe Rich has a Upgrade heifer that was winning everywhere and she is either going Combustable or Uno Mas this year.

I'll vote for Warsaw or Uno Mas. That's a good heifer and a pretty one!

I havent had a chance to learn his pedigree but Trausch has a CE bull called Tailgator who is a fullsib or something to Hartmans closed (to mere mortals) Simm. bull. Hes supposed to be CE- hiefer safe and at least from the picture: was way cool looking-especially in the leather dept.  O0

The more I look, I think Combustible would be cool.  But might not be super heifer safe, although I know of people that have used him with no problems.

I was at the Sweepstakes Sale and was quite interested in this female. It was a real pleasure meeting the Bramlet family also. Quality folks with an excellent program.
Nice heifer! Very flashy and placed well in the show the next day too.
Congrats!

This is a Grandmaster out of a full sister to Combustible's dam.  Would not call her leathery fronted. I have a half dozen GMs and love them all. Even use a son as clean up. No bad fronts on any.

I want the best bet the farm simmy heifer bull around for this female.  To me that means a negative birth weight EPD and decent growth numbers. OLF Odin U5 should suit her needs very well.  No point in rushing things with this quality female.

Thanks for everyone's opinion so far, I do want something that's proven calving ease for that first calf so I'm also considering angus as well.

Also considering I-80?

I'm sure she wasn't cheap, so I would lean towards a low bw Angus first go round to be safe and steer clear of anything Maine or clubby. 9 out of 10 times i80 is safe but I know of a few train wrecks with him so I wouldn't risk it with a female like her. I'd personally look at Confidence the Angus bull. He's a really cool looking sire

I'd try this guy.

I sold a bull calf out of him, had great hair and grew great.
