Needing some advice. I’m trying to identify 4 to 5 black Simmental bulls that are big framed and well muscled to AI to my 7 frame cows. . I have been getting mixed feedback from people I know and I figured I would put the forum to the rest?

how about a fullblood for reference.


most of the others from this era (74) were very thick and leathery necked.

Funny you mention that, I have some old “Darbill Bad Monday” semen, he was a 7.5 frame simmental bull. That was my originally plan.

Why do you want that size of cattle?

Someone said that the giant skeletons found in the digs were not dinosaurs but his British breed from the '80's.  Current cattle nearly all have some of those giants back in the pedigree, but breeders have selected toward their goals.  Fire and ice matings can have a good result or not....sometimes it works.
