Ok steer planet crowd, I am looking at some old school bulls to get some grow back in my cow base. I am looking at yellow jacket or full flush. I will be using it on smaller huge bodied cows. I should add I am looking to add some power into the cows as well.

Here is one of the heifers. She will be calving in march then bred to one of these bulls for second calf.

Bob Agle’s bull Bad Medicine a 3/4 Maine would be perfect. We have an MAB bred to him due at the end of the month. If you have good fences we’ve had good luck with Total Play, but some are CRAZY!!!

Lol not really into crazy. I'm hesitant on full flush because of the sugar ray behind him.

If this is the direction people start going to get what today's puds need, it's going to be really interesting watching some of today's kids try to show those 90s Chi calves. The parental rants on facebook when they unload them off the trailer after buying them in some online sale half way across the country are going to be epic.

I used Yellow Jacket & Some of the FF bloodlines , real good cattle , birthweights were issues for me . I would be careful with YJ on a second calf female , just my .02 !

If you are absolute on the Oldschool deal I would have to disagree on the yellowjacket side one for real depth of rib and 2 if BWS are an issue  my apologies on that end Fullflush and Carneyman would be PROVEN ALL AROUND  options on the type you pictured -There are a ton of more modern ones-but in that respect I REALLY AGREE IN YOUR DIRECTION Shorthorns also do the same thing-they are almost the ultimate changers if you go back from the current show cattle-and that blood dominated everything for years-IF YOU THINK OLDSCHOOL O0
