Freddy, hard to say from those profile photos. Any photos from the rear that show his quarter and top better?

Of the ones you listed i would have to say Choppin Wood but I believe there are many way and I mean way better choices for slick shearing ones in texas. If she has enough forerib milkman, if she is just an overall good one and needs power alias is hard to beat, I have seen some pretty good crowd favorites popping up and then you cannot ignore solid golds track record just make sure she has plenty of belly for solid gold. Thats just some colored bulls there are literally dozens of bulls you could go with but anything eye candy or yellowjacket bred i would stay away from for steers.
Hey DCC, can you answer some questions on those crowd favorites. I was thinking about breeding a lot to him next year. Does his calves have any size? whats he working on and do you have any pics of those calves? Thank You!---- for the post, I have a smokin good Alias x Simmy (direct hit x meyer) that I sold for a pretty good price the other day. What I can tell you from using Alias, make sure the cow is deep and extra sound. I would suggest alias, solid gold, milkman, or TT. Check out Diamond M cattle in Alabama, they had some really good TT and solid gold calves. As far as TT goes, I bought an ALI herd bull from Bill Elliott 2 years ago and he has thrown me better calves than some of my Bodacious and Monopoly calves and I paid $1500 for him. So you can only Imagine the quality of Smoke a lil Smoke or Texas Twister. Also from a mature standpoint, Texas Twister had one of the most impressive mature pics I have seen. Choppin Wood could throw you a pudd in a hurry. JMO

Do you have a link to the Texas Twister picture?

Pic 1 Texas Twister

For a Meyer cow, i'd use a halfblood Char bull.  Purebreds will be too big and too hard made to work for a slick steer.  Mr. Elliot's bulls are real good.

Milkman and YJ calves can be great, but both have a tendency to be too big.

Here is a bull that I think will make a slick one. I have posted his calf pics and dams pic before and here is his mature pic. If you like them moderate and monster boned look in. Jacob Tusa is offering semen in his online sale that ends today." LifeJacket" Yellow jacket X lifeline

Very very nice. Should be really proud! How are the heifer calves? And about how big is that bull? His pedigree would suggest some grow to him, which I like....

Polar ice sired the class winner hoge said in his reasons that RC AOB was between him and 2nd class 5 who was named RC. By pedigree we assume he is clean I have not tested any of them.he is moderate framed not a big one. He has only had a couple of calves as he was not used other than to clean up a small group that had been AI he sold a nice american out of him which is a neat twist to him. We have bred a bunch and flushed several to him. I flushed my monopoly to him( pictured ).

I don't see why all of us no-spelling illiterate water heads are even having this talk about bulls when we all know who the best is.

Be it dairy cattle, show cattle, or commercial cattle none are stouter made, easier fleshing, sounder, more fertile, or as good as this guy. I'm appalled that he hasn't been thought of yet. The best bull of all time! Your all inferior trying to make on as good as him, just look at his heart girth! The true sign of volume right?
