Thornberry said:I have had several Raven and New Edition calves and more to come yet. All born unassisted and in the 80# range which is light for our calves. The cows are fed corn silage year round and carry lots of condition. I used Raven on all of the saugahatchee cows and New Edition was used on anything that has too much height. The New Edition are jet black and look like peas in a pod I am concerned they may not have much hair. At this point the Ravens are very wide for their age (2-3 months) very hard (straight) tops and lots of hair. I would like to see a little more depth to them but they are still very young to tell. I like both enough that I am useing both bulls again this year. I will have pictures in a couple of weeks. Any other questions just ask away.
Im thinking about using raven on my finer muscled females to add a bigger top and hind quarter. did he add this to your cows? what type of cows did you put him on? what is he like as far as height on his calves?
Do you have any other sire groups you could tell us about? THANKS!!!
