a recessive gene is no problem when you`re good... Smile

I just admire that $51,000 steer calf he sired ...seedless fruit at it`s very best Smile

7 percent chi and registerable. Who cares if the bull carries a lethal defect that may cause the death of the dam or an increase in c-sections as long as he sires show winners Shocked Shocked

I'm admiring the heat wave and other assorted "chi" steers that I bought from the neighbor for $1.20, they really have some POWER and PERFORMANCE, especially the one that weighed 130 lbs. at birth. They are much fancier than the 9 weight yearlings that I bought today for a buck.

TD, making the best out of Michigan's laughable beef industry.

You wouldn't happen to know offhand what his head circumference is or if he sires any profitable light weight calves, would you?

I`m having a hell of a time figuring out the lightweight calf study...one day they`re culling them; next day they are praising them...but what are we offering them anything that makes more sense? papers instead of a system?

Was the Chi Association the first one willing to accept the payment for registration? If he is
64.98 % Angus, 14.843% Maine, 13.28% other then <7% Chi are we to conclude the Chi Association is the most desperate?

Is that the new bull that Jimmer was claiming was the new maternal wonder of them all, he has got to be with all that Angus in him. That is probably about avg Chi in the bull studs??? Very Happy Very Happy And we wonder why we don't need outcrosses bounce bounce

Mike, I just have to ask. What are you doing looking at club calf bulls?

A google search for info on an Angus bull I saw recently lead me to them...guess that tells you something about the type of the Angus; just satisfying a "what could he be thinking" curiosity...
