hmm, i like the old bulls best on that page
How'd you like those 3000 pounders????
i like the bulls because of the way they look, the way their rib cage looks, the shape of their hips, the strength of their back, the strength of their hocks their overall balanced look. i wonder what the unsoundness percentage is out of herefords today versus those bulls.
it's pretty funny you mention that as a bull i'm interested in weighed 3000 in fighting trim.
It's pretty clear that breeding half sibs to each other will take some of this away. what it probably also does is rearrange their overall balance as they are forced in a smaller package. pretty much all the other bulls on that page don't have near the balanced look to them. personally, i'd start a herd with them rather than the other bulls on the page. the thing that is different, is that they were never directly selected from the input restrictions we have now, but through several generations of misguided optimization.
i am after decoupling the link between maternal and muscle. it's pretty clear to me that there is such a mish mash of cattle out there today to detangle that antagonism, that i would rather start with something older rather than all the weak backed, shallow upper ribbed cattle on the rest of the page. it may be easier to get big cattle small than to get strong backs back into them. who knows. if you want, i can list the ones that look weak backed. of the color pics, i'll take standard lad there on the bottom.
