what to breed Hard Core heifer to
« on: December 10, 2009, 01:16:14 PM »
I generally pop in once in a while to read all the great posts on Steer Planet, but this time I am wanting some opinions from others.  I have a small September 2008 Hard Core heifer out of a Maine-Angus cow.  Does anyone out there have any ideas on what they would use on her.  She is really a baby-doll, very feminine and correct.  Like I said she is a small heifer and I want a very low birth weight bull.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

OCC Legend is an easy calver, works great on heifers.  He is a very moderate framed Angus bull that we use to reduce frame and add style on some of our simmental heifers.

I bred mine to Smokin Joe.  If she did not have a 1/4 Chi/Ang I would have bred her to Triple X.  I like some Chi in my calves but not too much.  I have three real heady heifers that are 1/4 Chi.... hopefully they will have 1/8 Chi calves that are not heady.  We go back to one of the bulls that really did a geat job with style and structure, but they all are a little to more than a little heady.  Sugar Ray was his name.  As I age I want more gentle cows....  Bouncer would also be a good bull.

Do you want to stay Maine?
If not you have a quiet a few options with bulls.
I have seen a few Major's Money that were small at birth and were pretty fancy as they grew.
I am a big fan of OCC Legend and Northern Improvement. They are consistently good easy calvers.You are able to get replacement females and saleable calves.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.
