I was just surfing an Italian Maine Anjou website and found the picture. I guess Knabe pegged him as Mels Benz.

Anyway, I just thought he looked like a well put together power bull.

Knabe, is he in fact Mels Benz?

I have 8 embryo's out of below bull, which is called the twin valley line.  extremely limited genetics on this line.  supposedly semen was available in the US per an advertisement, but i have never seen any.

there may be semen on the jacob bull at one time but i have never found any.


not sure if semen is available on PTR cunic 90e


meaning one or both of these bulls may have had long scurs and mistakenly be called scurs, the cows were, or the two direct offspring were the actual mutation minus scurs. who knows. 


at some level, i am trying to make a homo polled animal out of twin valley genetics.

he's a good looking homo polled bull.  typically, they have weaker rear end structure, less muscle, harder doing and have a relaxed prepuce which is undesirable as it can be a source of infection as it hangs down and can attract stickers, who knows what.


not sure how he ended up on an Italian site.

That's right an Italian Site.

Found him in Canda. His video shows him flatter made and really big framed.

Looks great in the photo though.
