Is this the type we are discussing?


There are so many things wrong with this bull. He exemplifies all the wrong turns the mainstream angus breeder has made in the last 20 years. He is everything we did wrong in the 70's and 80's and for the life of me I can't understand why we would take the most popular breed, maybe ever and turn it into this type of animal that no one has ever wanted for long. He would make a fine draft animal and that is the only redeeming quaility I can see in this bull and there is such high demand for draft cattle these days but maybe that will be the next fad. I hope this isn't someones favorite bull here but he is awful.


I almost forgot to add my "IMHO" to this post or I guess I should say "IMO" becaues I'm not all that humble. I caught wind that this bull might belong to someone over at the 4.9barY and just on the off chance he belongs to that feller Sue u tu ( little Asian feller I think) I'd better make sure I state, this is just my opinion. Wouldn't want to get cross ways with him.

This is such a beautiful picture and the grass is so green and lush. I think Double B is right, we'll just start this next page out with this beautiful picture and on we go.

There seems to be an opinion on this sight that the quality of this bull can not be accessed visually, and that if his homozygosity were adequate there would be no qualms about using him because he would be very predictable.

To be clear, I'm pretty sure most folks who are proponents of inbreeeding are seeking to increase homozygosity for traits that they think are desirable when expressed in the progeny. Of course, the breeder gets to pick what he thinks desirable.
