but not for clubby makin.........
Plenty of good Angus bulls out there with enough style and power to make a nice clubby. Have to do some work and look around just cause a breed doesn't throw hair doesn't mean it can't make a clubby...

To an extent. But why roll the dice into deeper and deeper odds? Why risk all the trouble? When dealing with clubbys you still CAN use proven and consistent genetics. I've been there and done that. All the crap te clubby world can throw at you and all the good it can have too. I promise you that first clubby heifer you breed to a "calving ease" clubby bull to add "power" or whatever and she can't pass the calf, or she can't milk you will reasses your heifer breeding habits. Nobody likes bottle feeding a calf or cutting one out. Granted, it does happen, and people find success in some of these bulls, I have myself. But to make the same mistake twice is only halting your herd growth and isn't worth the trouble in the long run. So instead of rolling the dice on every situation, use some reason in decision making. Lord knows the clubby world needs it, I try at least.

Let us know when you lose a heifer and her calf sometime not pretty.....  sometimes the dice come up snake eyes.... sometimes 6's.

Patience, Carlson, patience.  Heifers are for developing into cows.  Cows are for hitting home runs.  Take care of your heifers so they have a chance as cows.  Go buy some good cows if you can't wait for your heifers to develop.
May you always have cows around . . . ~ Corb Lund
