Wondering everyone's opinion which one makes better females out of deep bodied Angus cows?  Docility? Milk? Growth?  Longevity? 

If not 1 of these bulls, then what pb simmi works.


Thanks

Steel Force.  The base of my SimAngus herd is Steel Force cows.  I also think Chopper works well.

That being said, I don't think you can go wrong with Broker either, I just think his father is the better choice here.

I would have to agree with Willow Springs, Steel Force would be my choice, they are usually well above average and generally have great dispositions.  Broker makes them pretty and sound, but he can be real hit and miss on disposition and the misses are usually monsters.  I'd have to say the same about Chopper too, he can throw some ones with some pretty rank dispositions too.

Might as well switch the name of the breed simmental to steel force.

Breed has few options.

No one can make new blacks

They don’t know how.

Can’t argue that point. I think most can now go back to Dream On at some point in their pedigree. However, it’s still nice not pulling all of them, losing cows and having those monster big calves. All the breeds are losing their identity it seems.

Selection pressure is homogenizing all breeds.

Traits not under current pressure are also being eliminated that may have utility.

You got that right-or some of the bad traits like BWS are just lied about as usual O0
