Simmental bull
« on: December 03, 2015, 08:26:45 PM »
Ok so I am new here and fairly new to cattle in general. I am wanting opinions on this young simmental bull. Not sure how to share this as a link here. But here it is
https://youtu.be/IwuFAOLMEds  I will try to get a good link going. Just looking for input. Want to see what others think to compare and see what I am seeing also.

Thanks

Ok I think I fixed the link. Sorry for the delay.

Pretty good bull calf, appears to be sound and has some muscularity to him. For me, he's a little bit sloppy fronted and down headed ( which isn't a real big deal in the commercial world), also pinched a little in his heart girth. Overall a decent looking calf. What's your plans for him?

I like him. He looks thick enough for me, and not to sloppy fronted. If I was gonna change him I would deepen him up in his rear flank a little. He is young. He will make a real good herd bull for someone. What's he out of?

Hard to tell at that age , he's got a lot of growing to do yet. Looks like he will throw some grow and power in his calves. He does have a bit much front end for me but to each his own.

He is out of Yardley High Regard. He is 10 months in the video. The plans at the moment are to keep him and see how he progresses this year.

Really nice picture. He looks really good. By that picture I take back the depth comment. In the pic he resembles his sire a great deal. I think you made a good decision on keepin him. Congrats and good luck.

Thanks Kaxx, Like I said before really just beginning to get my feet wet in this business. I have a lot to learn.  I still am going by what I see and the way the animal is put together. His EPDs are not bad either,at least I don't think so. But time will tell.

We are going to run him with the cows this spring. Then in the fall plans are to get him collected and try a few shows.
