I'm going with 2,050 and 85 cents. I presume you are selling so he doesn't start admiring his own daughters?

Speaking of which, what kind of calves were you getting? If bull is a crossbred himself, I'd think calves would not run true......and more so on crossbred cows? Calves being good, bad and ugly.

I'd be replacing him with a pure something not related to the cows to get at least a 3 way cross on the calves?

I was Satisfied! He had to go ...his daughters were of age! & I have a replacement already ran with the Young of last year.

I sure Wish he had paid what some of the guesses were!

I thought I may be a bit light but it didn't look like he had alot of length, that is were photos make it difficult.

Dang vet is really running late today...

Did someone buy that as a breeder or will it go to McDonalds? Or is it too good for McDonalds?

Don't know much about this stuff just curious.

Thanks W R R ! Bought him as a calf. Picked him up in the fall
He was 4.

Bernie...most likely Butcher bull.

I almost had him butchered into 100% ground beef. I would have made way more $ That way...but alas, I didn't. Too busy to market and sell him by the pound.

If you do one in the future dont be afraid of the premium steaks, I am a big fan of bull steaks. In my opinion they have improved texture and flavor compared to some doll off the feedlot who has never walked more than a 100 yards in a day.

Well I would try a bull stake first before I'd ever butcher one for table fare.
