They announced in the ring that the other nut had not desended but was there or some crap like that. When he went into the ring I was in the back and I thought this dude wont bring a grand. Ahh what the hell do I know.....bada bing bada boom.....4300 hundo. Unbelievable. Not ten steps to the right of this bulls pen was lots of angus bulls that blew him out of the water. The angus bulls there were head and shoulders above the shorties. Sorry. Just my opinion. There was a Limestone Great Divide son there that I loved. He was bad to the bone. Anyhow, I believe the ASA was against the bull being in the sale but somehow he still sold. I dont care how good a bull is. My God doesnt common sense just scream "Hey man, I got one nut down here, Im a steer!"


How many shorthorn folks there walked the angus aisles?

I didnt write any prices down. The Gottshalk bull was pretty cool, moderate little chunk. Cool colored. JTM's heifer sold pretty good. She looked good in person. His whole bunch did.

It very well could have been there, but he was still a cryptorchid! A very heritable trait.

 Anyhow, I believe the ASA was against the bull being in the sale but somehow he still sold.

I would say that unless the consignment letter said "we reserve the right to sift at the sale", then they had no legal right to kick him out. It should have been up to the breeder not to bring him.

How many Angus breeders walked the Shorty aisles? I mean if I'm not into Angus pedigrees & Angus cattle & don't plan on using Angus cattle , then why should I? I don't think that makes anyone less of a cattleperson.  I geuss if I'm trying to sell a bunch of bulls maybe, just so you know what your competition is ?

Maybe if you walked down through the angus you could see the difference. Turning a blind eye just because you dont like them or dont plan on using them is pretty silly to me. I talked to several angus folks walking through the shorthorns. I just was wondering if any shorthorn breeders walked through them and noticed the quality is all. Something to be learned IMO.

My problem isn't so much that this bull sold, but if his testicle wasn't decended, I think that could be a fairly heritable trait. He may never sire a bull calf that isn'gt steered, but his daughters will probably pass this ugly trait on as well. More proof that common sense is dieing a slow and cruel death!

Doesn't that just give the whole breed a bad reputation? No wonder there are people out there who think that shorthorn breeders are a bunch of wack-a-doodles. No offense to anyone. Selling a one nutter makes everyone look bad.

Someone posted that the ASA was not in favor of the bull walking in-- how much pull would the ASA have to stop a deal like this or refuse transfers, registrations, etc.??  I mean it is their registry-- they can refuse animals, can't they?  not looking for an argument, just asking.

Vanridge-- you hit it on the head-- no wonder we (shorthorns) can't get some more commercial credibility. 
We must work together as a breed to think of the good of the breed as a whole in our breeding decisions.  I understand that we all have bills to pay, but we must try to work for the good of the group.
Just my 2 cents.

Just had a little contact with liveauctions and they weren't aware the Ohio Shorthorn report just had the genetic lots and that they would locate the full report and load that up by noon Wed so we should know tomorrow

I guess it's our membership dollars at work?... but if you are reading this thread please stop calling me. I attended this event the bull was lot 4 . More then likely his paternal brothers sold the following day?   I did see all of the consignments- champion bull of gottschalk's was refreshing and looked to me a total package? Alot of good bulls sold just not this one in question. Two Ace of Diamonds and plenty of JPJ bulls .
If you would like to purchase bulls with 2 testicles- contact waukauru or myself... we have bullls with two nutts and born w/o assistance.

It was our first consignment to the OBE and we were really happy with the results. It was beautiful weather and we met a lot of good people. It was a really enjoyable weekend! As far as the heifers I think the sale average was $2600 or so. The bulls were more like $3,300 I think. It seemed like things sold pretty good and the quality was really good.
As far as the one nutted bull goes, I noticed it when walking around checking out the bulls. I definitely think it should not have been sold because of the impression it gives of our breed to commercial customers or any other customer. I did hear that the bull was semen tested and it came out good. Still doesn't qualify it for me with the potential for a defect being passed on in so many cattle.

I thought the overall quality of cattle was pretty good. The bull questioned above from the naked eye was attractive and had some of the more popular breeding.

He's nice lookin for sure.  I was disappointed when I noticed the bull in question was lot 4.  That deep low set is a good look- its the look Solution throws.  Why can't there be an easier doin cf Solution with more practical numbers!?!?  I jus like the way they look I can pick em out of a line up every time.

Concerning lot #4, are there any vets on the board that can give us any insight as to the heritability of this trait?  Or is it even a trait...meaning If it were to do with how he was positioned in the womb (which I have no idea if that's even a possibility), I wouldn't think that wouldn't effect his offspring??

Okay this is my thing and I don't have a horse in this race BUT.....Ohio State Vet Hospital (which we are all fairly close to here in Ohio where this bull was raised) will pull an undescended testicle down for $150-200. I think that's pretty cheap. If the other nut was up inside why not spend the few dollars to have it put down where it belongs? Goodluck to the new buyer I guess.

Cryptorchidism in North American cattle: breed predisposition and clinical findings.
St Jean G, Gaughan EM, Constable PD.
SourceDepartment of Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506-5606, USA.

Abstract
The authors analyzed data collected over 26 years from 143 cryptorchid bulls admitted to 23 North American veterinary schools. Breed was found to be a risk factor. The medical records of 41 cryptorchid cattle were also obtained, and the physical examination findings, method of diagnosis, and surgical management were recorded. Polled Hereford and Shorthorn cattle were at significantly greater risk for cryptorchidism; however, polled cattle were not at an increased risk for cryptorchidism. Cryptorchidism was most commonly diagnosed by external palpation of the superficial inguinal rings and by palpation per rectum. Unilateral cryptorchidism appears to be more common than bilateral cryptorchidism. The incidence of cryptorchidism was 69% for the left testis and 31% for the right testis. Sixty-six percent of the retained testes were located in the inguinal canal. Cryptorchidectomy was performed through an inguinal, paramedian or flank approach in 26 bulls. Cryptorchidism appears to be rare in bovine bulls admitted to North American veterinary schools, with 1.7 cases per 1,000 bull admissions. We suggest that cryptorchidism be considered an inherited trait in the Shorthorn and Polled Hereford breeds.
