Title: Eye Candy thoughts
Post by: rtm on April 01, 2010, 08:36:24 AM
Was wondering what people thought of the bull Eye Candy. Calf reports, size, bw's, etc?

I have only good things to say.  I will try to take pictures of the Eye Candy heifer that we will be showing this year and keeping as a replacement.  BW seems to be around 80-90 lbs so far for us.  We will use him again.

I seen a real nice one last fall.  Sounds like EC's come pretty easy also.

i've seen several heifers that i have really liked. however, i can't think of any steers. the heifers have all been powerful but still sound and cowy looking.

i love the consistancy of all the calves he throws from heifers to bulls. They are a little thick fronted but that is his only fault! he sires easy keeping, correct, and deep bodied cattle!

Haven't used the bull but looking at his calves i would say he needs to be bred to a clean fronted cow,as all his calves seem plainer fronted.

he is plainer fronted, but in the clubby deal he can really have a place to soften up and put a good structure on some of these steery females.

Have one Eye Candy Bull calf.....Approx 85 lbs out of a Feaky Fronted, long bodied, Mossy Oak that needed softening up.  It worked!  Cool Calf! Coal Black, Great Hair, big boned, structure is great!  I will use him again and again.  If I can figure out how to load a picture (maybe my 11 year old daughter can for me) I will try to get one on here over the weekend.

Had an Eye Candy heifer tonight - just got back from the barn in fact.   She is huge out of a Wonder cow - got to be at least 125 and this may be conservative.  She had her unassisted but that's a miracle.   Huge bone, top and hairy.  I'll post some pics in a few days.
