I cant believe Walks Alone is still $25 after all the champs he has sired. BIM calves are looking great but he is $30 but well worth it IMO.

Master Of Puppets, I know it is hard to justify just yet. But from the calves that I have seen from him on the ground now, he will prove himself worthy.

I second that, I''ve had monopoly's but wasn't really impressed. Master of puppets gives a more consistent calf crop.  As of this far.   Different bulls work on different herds.  In my opinion smilin bob is the best bul on the market.  Breed him to smooth shouldered, deep bodied clubbier type cows and he'll do the rest.

I guess IMO it will really slow the movement of semen on EC, but according to Cattle.com's latest club calf sales average with EC coming in 3rd overall behind Milkman & Smilin Bob, it makes more sense to me than the array of brand new promoted bulls coming out @ $50.00 with no calves on the ground & all of the hype of the syndicated bulls. In the end the owners/promoters sure have the right to price/merchandise their bulls however they feel best. It does cost allot of money to promote a bull & is not easy by a long shot!!

i don't have a problem paying up for bulls that i know will work.  Like HW and Monopoly have proven their ability to work on certain cows and Mayer 734 before them.  If he is proven to be a producer on certain cows, it is foolish not to pay the extra $20-$25 and know what to expect.  I don't believe he is cloned and if demand is outpacing supply, the only way to equitably balance the demand equation is to raise prices.

I used 3 units last year, 1 calf. Had a 84 lb sold black heifer calf out of a BWF simmy x cow. I'm just shocked as the mother is painted up like a son of a gun that it come out solid. A little over on her front feet yet. Very thick and very hairy but other bulls will do that at half the price and stick a few more. I'm not one to be scared of high priced bulls as long as there is a reason. I'd like to know why he got jacked up I guess......

From what Chris Wilson told me he got hurt and is doing good but they won't try and collect him again until at least May.  We use a lot of him and like the results, I just put
another 30 units in my tank at OBE.  We got great conception rate with him.  The cows we bred to Eye Candy and Smiln' Bob had very high conception rates.

So while we are talking about him, what would you breed an Eye Candy daughter(dam is a Dr. Who) to? She got the TH carrier gene, so it has to be something that is TH free.We are just trying to brainstorm some ideas right now.

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.

Bojo sure isn't cheap anymore though fwiw.......

I am with you all. I was gonna use EC on a few cows, and I just believe for the price I can find a bull that will do the same thing. I was gonna use Jimmy the Greek I think on those same cows that need downsizing and some depth of body and hair? hopefully? What are some opinions on that?

I have an Eye Candy heifer this year that I'm going to breed to Breathe Easy for the first calf. Traush farms seems to have a lot of good calves from this cross so itll be interesting what will happen.
