Eye Candy
« on: May 21, 2010, 02:48:44 PM »
I have a Hannibal x Meyer cow that I am thinking about breeding to Eye Candy.  What has your experience been with this bull?  What types of calves do you see?  I am either going to use Eye Candy or one of the new bulls Salty Dog or Uno Mas.  So many bulls, so few cows!

If she looks like a typical hannibal cow that would be the way to go. We have a bunch on the ground and they are REALLY nice. Have seen a bunch in some other herds and they're by far the nicest ones.They're all sellable. He will add mucsle ,rib and give a ton of hair. Hope this helps.

I wish someone would post some photos of Eye Candy calves.  I have not seen any yet that would inspire me to use him.  Only people saying his calves are great.

Hey g cattle, when you said "looks like a typical Hannibal cow", what do you mean by that?  I am just curious as to how Hannibal cows normally look.  Thanks.

What I mean is most that I've seen are really long fronted and need tick more rib. Those are the type Eye Candy seems to be working the best on.

Eye Candy born April 12.  My only one, but I'll definitely use him more.

It's a heifer, and a stout one!

Cow's background is Wonder X Chi-Maine-Angus.

so, it appears that eye candy will add depth, hair, and mass but not help with front ends...is that a fair assessment?

thus, he needs to be used on chi cross cows that are very nice fronted.

being a typical heatwave yes, he wont give much extension or clean up the excess leather on the front. but after seeing him running with cows last year, i would say that he would be able to maintain or improve the front shoulder and how it lays into the front end. he will add alot of dimension and depth of heart. we have never fed one but i would guess that the average Eye Candy would be a pretty easy feeding calf.
