We are getting ready to AI our heifers and we are using Bouncer. Has anyone used him if so how are his calves?
knabe said:skf, bouncer is a very unique bull. vincent is very knowledgable about that bull and 4 generations back on the bottom side. his great grand dam is still alive, 14 years old. he is going to have the complete bovigen panel done shortly on that bull. he says bouncer looks the same when he goes into pasture as when he comes out. he's a pig producer and is very cognizant about a specific phenotype and he can break it down for you. his calving ease is probably more than just a lower bw. he probably has another trait i am interested in and it has something to do with maturity. he's a counterintuitive bull from that perpsective. hmm, longevity, a novel concept.
knabe said:great comments aaok, you may end up being right about the angle, it may go along with the phenotype. did you mean that the distance between her pins and twist had less length(wildebeasty?), or that she just sloped? taking your comments into consideration, and projecting a little into the future and that all the positive traits of bouncer were retained, who would you breed the heifer too when she becomes a cow?
