Harvie High Roller?

I bet you could hit a home run if mated to something moderate that needs more bone, growth and power. They can get pretty big though and you’ll have to expect some extra birthweight.

This is a High Roller son I bought and used. He’s pictured at about 14 months. He had tonnes of performance and bone but did end up getting taller than I expected.

What is the biggest butted Hereford bull?-theres one on another thread Re herd bull pictures owned by MTNMAN  thats right there-Im thinking of one thats got some size but hugely wide to use on a moderate LOW BW clubby almost white shorthorn She comes from very maternal cattle and low BW with a little maine in them that ive had  since 1991-I want a roan Shorthorn x  Hereford looking bull from her There are some way cool looking Hereford Appearing bulls down South-along with Shorthorn Appearing cattle that are flat BREAKING THE BANK. I want to show up with the real thing in a bull that will produce cows and steers Ive met several real old folks now long gone who thought that HerefordxShorthorn was the best British cross-and very few people are doing it The potential for groundsows is quite apparant: to me at least O0

I cant remember what clovis what its been yrs since i remember seeing anything from him. I know that the 313 cow has sired several good ones. You can get semen on him at thegenesource.com  , By the way i am in no way attactch to drager or carr just being down here in texas I have dealt with alot of breeders. The days have several hereford bulls that sure do put em out. They usually sell semen on them but it can be hard cause they dont promote any of theres. Just have to know they are there.

This one weighed 73 pounds and Ive had the cow family since 1991-Shes the one I"m thinking of using a Hereford on Shes out on grass now-she had a 2.5 week trip from Kansas after weaning and was in with much bigger simm calves so she never ate much-but didnt need to Her mother is the maybe 1200 pound cow on the right
