"Meant to Be" Bull and "Duello Icon" Bull
« on: April 15, 2020, 11:19:49 AM »
Breeding 10 PB Angus heifers next year and was wondering if "Meant to Be" was calving ease and safe to use on them to create Sim/Angus cows to breed clubby bulls in the future. The heifers will be out of either "Colburn Primo" or "Bushs Unbelievable"

Breeding 30 PB Angus cows next year A.I. but want to still breed about half to angus bulls thinking "Primo and Style" was just wondering if "Duello Icon" was living up to the hype to create the Maternal calves to make Maine/Angus cows to bred to clubby bulls eventually.

Any feedback on these bulls would be helpful as I am just getting into the breeding game for show calves but first I really want to create a solid cow base to breed clubby bulls to.
Thanks.

Everyone of them will be different and to use a one size fits all approach will not get you very far.  Honestly evaluate each one and then try to breed to a bull that will correct their faults.  Plus find a type and kind that you like and breed and select for that.  Strict culling will also help you get farther faster, then when you achieve what you want, flush the crap out of them.  Just my opinion
Life is tuff, but it is tougher when you are stupid.

Most of my cows look very similar and uniform. Things that could be fixed are cleaning up the front 1/3rd, bigger boned, wider topped and bigger butts.

This year I bred heifers to Bushs unbelievable and Half my cows to Colburn Primo and the other half to Walks Alone.

Any suggestions on bulls to use on these type of cows (PB Angus) to create show calves would be helpful.

I'd make sure the Simm bull you use on the Primo daughters to make your factory cows carries some milk.
