Ours have been good. We just had trouble getting them to grow. They all seemed to be on the smaller side.
Good things in life don't come by a snap of the fingers, but by blisters on our hands.

Great bull for heifers, they are a little late bloomers. We have raised a few and shown with great results. They may not sell too well as babies but if you have a late fair these guys reallly come onstrong in the last 60 days. Have never had trouble calving and they have been vigorous babies as well as great dispositions. was afraid we may have too keep daughters last steer she showed as he was like a big puppy, lovable and a great personality. It was hard for me to put on the truck after the sale, needless to say it devistated our 18 year old that her baby had to go. He would still be here if it was up to her.

Both calved completely unassisted. Really nice little calves in the 50-60lb range. Both were up immediately after hitting the ground. The sunseeker heifer went 4 days late. The heat wave heifer went 1 day late.

I tried to breed heifers to total solution and other calving ease bulls.  I thought I would be able to sell a few a year. I came to the conclusion it isn't worth the time and extra effort.  These bulls don't let the cattle grow.  Total solution gets the calves pretty straight.  Most of the time you wont notice them at birth, but 4-8 months later you will be noticing them.  I had 16 total solutions last year, I thought he was the cat's ass, but after breeding all my heifers last year to him the calves started getting straight off the rears.  Out of them 16, 12 became crippled and didn't make it.
