The Big Show / Re: CF Primo

The recep cows were not the issue. My other calves, which were picked up at the same time, were perfectly fine.  The cows are gentle, and believe it or not, the cow owners said that these calves were always nuts in the pasture.

I understand that calf behavior can be learned from the momma cow, but that was NOT the case here.  Like I said, I have had others tell me that their Primo calves were nuts also.

Anyone have a opinion on the offspring of the Shorthorn bull CF Primo.   What type of cows does he work best on?

I can not let this one go without my 2 cents worth.

I bought a flush from CF out of their Casino cow and used Primo upon recommendation from CF.
When I used him his calves were SUPER INSANE CRAZY.  I mean totally unbreakable, nuts, and just plain psycho.  The heifers were pretty necked but pretty "gutless".  Seemed to be hard doing, and 2 of 3 didn't breed so they got their heads chopped off. 1 did breed (she was the one I did get halter broke).  The other two had little pig eyes, and a very broad foreheads. I swear you could have halter broke wild white tail deer easier. 
When I asked around, others had similar experiences.

Did he get put on the open market? When I used him he was "syndicated".

OK, I will go away again.  Take it for what it is worth.

Apparently Iowa's fourth string is better than Missouri's starters!  Go Hawks!!! Next year is going to be GREAT!!!

Next year will be interesting... I think there will be some huge surprises.

As for the OH St players, I am willing to bet they will not see the campus next year.... They had good council, they said what they knew everyone wanted to hear so they could play in the bowl.

I think your on the right track! You have a nice herd of RP and are starting strong in the RA's.  You have a good plan!

When comparing the two, which have better maternal ability, and which is more docile?  Are you thinking the Gelv will add some meat and bone?

Some of the suggestions are not defect free. So be careful.

I might go with OCC or Duff angus genetics.  They would add correctness and thickness, while maintaining maternal ability and easy fleshing ability.

A local used to show red polls... oh wait, maybe they were gelvbieh.... or were they red angus..... oh heck, I don't know, and neither did they! They were red though.
They were known for showing whatever critter they could steal with whatever registration they had in their hand!  Whatever they had, they seemed a bit hard doing, and long and lanky. Not really my type of cattle.

But RedCowsRule: Nice photos. Do you have Red angus also?

As with the other post wanting a red bull, we need more information to make a good sound recommendation.... what do you want to produce? What are the cows you are breeding? To make a recommendation without knowing those variables is shooting in the dark at best, and irresponsible at worst,  IMO.

Too little information to make a suggestion. What are the heifers your breeding as far as breed, or pedigree? What are your plans for the calves? What is your management type?

Without knowing that vital information, I would suggest a few red angus, so if your interested, let me know.

He seems to slope from hooks to pins. Maybe a wee bit heavy in the shoulder and a bit high flanked?
Looks like a nice easy keeping steer, but doubt if he will go American (as you stated).

In my neck of the woods, we use Limmi's. You say creek, we say crick. Same thing.
I think the person who started this post needs direction on maintaining a good relationship with their calf so they can have a fun and successful show season.

showstopper, Pretty big comments about my spelling, when your by-line is wrong.... did you mistype or just can't spell either?  (reference to your word of  LOST and not LAST when refering to cheating). Also, sense is spelled with a "s" and not a "c" as you used.  Oh well, I guess you are not pefect either, (nor am I)  Maybe YOU need to spend more time paying attention in class rather than being on steerplanet? Or are you that kid in the corner of the classroom with your hands under the desk playing with your phone?

If you are going to point out mistakes, you had better know how to spell yourself. One mistake, maybe, but two? Come on, that even made ME laugh. You also need to spend time paying attention to your teacher instead of being on SP.
gobigorgohome quote: Show heifer btw since you use to show "hard" you should know how to spell "limi" vs limmi. limmi doesnt even abreveate the word limousin. wow you say your a wee but older tha ss95 and he is 15 but you cant even spell an abreviated word.
