The cross bred heifer I was talking about is a Shorthorn Plus, still a crossbred I guess.  She is a Mar 30th IVF heifer. Her sire is "Who's the Man"  Her dam is Aviator by a Augusta Pride cow.  I believe the cow was bought couple years back at the Revival Sale.

This black heifer is really good.  I believe Bob said he would be getting pictures in a couple weeks.

I went out to Bob Duis to look at cattle last week.   Bob still has a few receip cows, some had Shorthorn Calves and some with cross bred calves.  He had 3 full brothers to Tuscaloosa and Talladega..WHAT A TRIO!!!    These bull are as good as I have seen.  If they develop they will be the best trio of bulls I may ever have seen.  One is sold red and the other 2 are roan.   He also had an awesome crossbred heifer calf. I believe she was sire by 'Who's your Daddy" not positive.  She is flat out good!!
If you are out that way it would worth you time to take a look before they are sold.

    You know as well as I that Mickey heifers are late bloomers.   I have attached a picture of a Mickey heifer that won her class in the Junior and Opens show at the 2010 Naile.

Scrotal  was 41.5 biggest of any Shorthorn bull at the Iowa Royal   All this in a 6.5 frame.

how about mitch's AoD bull?

Phineas brought 7500.00 and went to Phil Raisbeck and Keith Hueneke.   Phil Raisbeck is the one who breed Ace of Diamonds.
I was also told that Cattle Visions has already picked him up.
We were happy with the price and happy with who bought him.

Am attaching a photo of DRM Phineas' grand dam.  This pix was taken this summer with her July Heifer calf.      "Trix" is 9 years old and milks rather well

He and Horton are both way good. I watched the Championship drive video from Denver-NO CONTEST-your two calves are sounder-and have alot of performance-trailer ride or not. These are the two best ones (by video) Ive seen come from your place-including some very good hiefers. O0
Thanks Mark,
   Both bulls are really good yet different.  The Mickey bull we raised did us a good job. Mickey heifers topped our fall sale and expo. His heifers are making really good cows.   A Mickey son " Maloney" that Dale Wernicke bought sired the 2nd high selling heifer at last years Iowa Royal Sale.   We think these 2 bulls are as good as any spring bulls  I have seen this year, except the Cates Bull.
As I have also said good breeding bull come from good cows.   Both of these bull's dam are in our top 2 cows.
