OH Breeder said:If I remember right, I think he was bred in Canada by Halls. JIT might know better. Hartman's, Glovers as well as several others were the Legacy Syndicate. Google him and it is interesting what you may find.

Yeah! I woulda said
Apparently the bull died and didn't go to heaven - he went to another ranch where he continued to produce offspring and then he really died - there is a lawsuit pending. I don't know when he really died if he went to heaven - chances are that some of the people involved won't go to heaven
Thanks for the information we are new to Maine's we have been in Brangus and Angus since the early 90's. The Maine breed seems to have as many players as the Angus. Thank you for your help.sdf said:Does any one have information on Hall's Legacy Plus? We have nice heifer out of him and we would like to find out a little more about him.

DL said:sdf - Midas is my all time favorite Maine bull for maternal females - I love the bull and I really love his females (not to say I don't really favor FR Magic and Smithbilt ) - I have a picture of Magic - - I'll dig up - he is an older bull 1984 if I recall and long lived
Cicely is out of Ashley who was the dam of The Witch Doctor - one of the most popular Maine Anjou bulls ever - known for calving ease but also one of the few "bovine triathletes" - was able to create great females and bulls, but also pretty darn good show calves (heifers and steers). Linds (LLND) of Colorado produced some very impressive cattle that are still useful and functional today. I have found the WItch Doctor females to be very maternal and excellent cows, and I have used several of his sons (WD40, Cigar) with similar results.
Sounds like you got yourself a pretty nice heifer - if you PM me her reg # I can see if I can tease out any other tidbits!
