Shorty Bulls
« on: April 17, 2011, 02:12:18 PM »
I am new to SP, but have been a silent observer for a few years now.  It is a beautiful day here in central, Illinois, but far to wet to put corn in the ground. I attached a few pictures of a bull we plan on using, and his maternal brother born this spring. Both bulls are pretty dirty due to our current weather situation. Any thoughts?

Welcome to Steerplanet (officially). I like them both, but the red bull in particular is a tank. VERY nice!

Thank you very much. We are very pleased with him as well. He has a 78 lbs act. bw, 715 ww, and 1236 yw.  We plan to use him on heifers and then show him this fall.

I would be happy to have either bull running my pasture this summer. What's the breeding on them? I like the natural thickness of the solid red bull but am partial to color.

The red bull is by our senior herd sire SULL GNCC Urlacher who is a CF Solution X Sugar N Spice (donor of Greenhorns). The roan calf is sired by Tm Gus.  Both bulls are out of a K-kim Castlerock cow that goes back to a cow we had that won the NWSS Jr. Show in 2005 when Harold Bertz judged.

Real good calf-good red bull-I remember the cow when u showed her-does the low BW come from her end -maybe Castlerock to some extent?-I just wouldnt pedigree the red bull for calving ease,on the sire side-but hes really good looking on a second calver.JMO-bred a bunch of KABA breeding,for years-actually have two triple bred KABA Roses-but bred  along with KABA leader rather than the whole 57th-Trump deal-Ones fine-the other has had 2 dwarfs-possibly due to early starvation by some toads in OHIO.

I would say the majority of the calving ease comes from castlerock, however, most of our Urlacher's come in with BW in the high 70's low 80's and to date we have not pulled one. I was thinking of using him on some second calving Ar Su Lu Osage daughters. Maybe that would be a little more safe the first time around.

//// SPEAK TO ME-about the Osages-Ive yet to see oneI did see him-he was way good.-I really like the low BW breeding that goes back to the Shalimar appendix cattle. O0

The shalimar cattle at one time were all appendix free.  The shalimar outfit is about 80 miles away from me.

We have used Osage for three years now with great success.  He is a definite calving ease bull that stamps them all out the same. His daughters are moderate, easy keeping and have nice udders. I have reccommended him to many. However, this is the first set of his daughters we have calved out, so I am not an expert.
