Attention Shorthorn Gurus and Furus - old bull pics!!!
« on: June 17, 2021, 08:10:48 PM »
Longtime listener first time caller here

I couldnt help but bring this up.  Unless youre living under a rock, or not interested in Shorthorns, youve probably seen the massive offering on Sire Buyer. 

Its obvious this is Merls tank, RIP.

I havent seen something like this come on the market before.  I find it interesting that there is so much demand.

The questions I have are - what would you try again out of this group and why, what is it worth, can you answer without bashing any of the bulls or breeders (aka the high birthweight chis),  what else is hiding in other tanks out there?

the drawing is Dreamboat.  Apparently he was so ugly when he got older they never published a photo.

I owned Lazy D Ultimate Type and GR Cop Top Trampass and used an ET son of Boris out of Bonnie Ruberta (Deerpark Leader 18th daughter) at one time.  I purchased Ultimate Type as a calf from Lazy D, later sold him to Duane Sicht, and Merle Welch purchased most of the semen at Duane's sale a few years later. For many years he was an ASA balanced trait leader.  The photo you provided was taken in our orchard.  I bought Trampass from Merle and thought he followed Ultimate Type as being near perfect in conformation for the time.  Ultimate Type was a direct son of Highfield Una 3rd and Trampass was a grand son.  Both bulls worked extremely well for me for many years and I would not be afraid to use them again.  The Boris son was not used as much, but his daughters were absolutely magnificent cows.  He was very moderate in size.  I tried many other bulls on the list and liked the calves I got out of all of them.  There are some good bulls on that list and Merle deserves much credit for developing them.  I last saw him at the Missouri sale a few years ago and had a good visit with him.

Always liked the way Ultjmate Type looked.  Was he too moderate for the frame score era of the 80s.  Seems like good genetics that got left behind because of a fad.

R180 sounds familiar. Was there a show heifer that had that number.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

Yeah, old Robin donor cow.  Wanted to post the pics on here and hear some thoughts, but you have to be a member and I couldnt think of username, almost went with Dreamboat haha.  Im not affiliated w green ridge, just an anonymous former customer - I assume there are a lot of us still around who enjoy Shorthorn nostalgia.

Found a couple more from the list.  The red ones are the Ash Valley Dutys, the better looking one is 0734

J&E High Hope looks interesting, I would give it a shot if I was in N. America!

I added a couple bulls to the tank and missed out on a couple others. I was surprised how much people were willing to pay for the bulls I didn't get. It would be interesting to know where some of the volume buys went and how they plan on using it.

This bred heifer is out of an Ultimate Type cow.
