He's a definite calving ease bull.  From our experience calves come small and easy and are vigorous at birth.  We also noticed the calves were pretty consistent when you looked accross the group.  Ours were smooth made, deep, sound and had some look to them.  I would say they were lighter on bone than I would like, and narrower pinned than their mothers.  Daughters have made good cows.

I have two producing daughters and they consistently raise a quality calf that is born easily. Not the biggest cows I have by any means.

Agree totally with the calving ease , vigorous calves at birth , and deep body soft made body. They seem to lack power and width though. I also had a tough time getting them stuck at A.I. time though , always the last few to calve , and in the end that's why there is none here anymore. Not taking anything away from the bull , that's just my experience , the good and the bad !

I have a coming 4th calf cow. Her bag is worse than her dams. Calm easy going easy keeping fairly fertile cow.

Have a bred heifer due the 19th and ultrasounded carrying twins so that may be fun. All around very sound and decent looking.

Bet the ranch calving ease I'd say no on In Dew Time. Mine was 85 lbs out of an Angus heifer and we used him 2 years on commercial angus heifers and owners loved how big they got just were sick of pulling calves. Didn't lose any just had to be there is all.

I'd like another 1/2 frame score on both my cow and the bred heifer but he has his place and I'll still use him some.
