$50 can get you atleast a $1500 return on a decent calf. It really isn't that much
The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

There are many other good bulls out there for $20-$25 that will give just as good results

I agree, is an extra $25 really worth getting all worked up about?
If you're breeding him for what he is that little shouldn't matter, if you're breeding him because you think he has a cute name you can get some dairy semen for $5 dollars and get a live calf just as easy.

I'll agree that in some cases, that 50 dollars isn't a big deal. But I can also think of several instances where 50$ has killed the deal. One such instance happened with the Maine bull Premium Blend. He started at 50 and no one used him. He is now down to 25, where he should have started, and few use him. His time came and went. I think that 50 dollars is only for very proven bulls that are no longer collecting, or in some cases not producing enough to keep up with supply. Semen priced too high can be the " kiss of death" for some bulls. JMO

50$ for a straw is perfectly reasonable for him imo, hes proven that he is worth it with a great set of calves on the ground and in the ring now

there is no way i would pay 50 dollars to put a crippled calf on the ground out of him. i have a bodacious calf on the ground thats more impressive than any eye candy ive seen. id give him a try.

I'll spend $25 to $30 on Walks Alone, Monopoly, Heat Wave clone, Ali, WMW, Bojo and the list goes on. Semen sales will go down. The $50 is not that big of a deal if you knew for sure that the cow would take the 1st time but if it takes another straw, your out $50 more than the others. Any decent calf will bring $1,500 in the club calf business and any of the above bulls bring more than $1,500 on average. It's a matter of time till a clone or a brother to him comes out. I like eye candy and have seen some nice calves out of him but not any more than the bulls above and not good enough in my opinion to spend $50 a straw.

I would have to agree, he does not warrant the price jump, not when there's bulls like monopoly 2, bojo, bodacious ect. I'm glad I have a few straws ofhim my tank but, I won't be adding any more.

With calf prices the way they are that $5 dollar dairy bull might throw you a $1500 calf at the sale barn next fall.  (lol)

I really like the bull and as I said in an earlier post I was going to use him but I agree there are bulls out there for less money that will probably do me just as good of job.  <rock>

I'd say monopoly and eye candy are both worth the higher price but for a 25 b.i.m is doing good
