"Schaff Angus Valley, who has the best cow herd in the world, ..................."

I did not know that:-)

I used 50 straws of ext, ended up with a dozen of so cows, long term, outa him. A little smaller frame size than our Sitz bulls, really nice udders---basically no disposition issues, but only my wife and I are around our cattle, it seems that cattle reflect the time spent with them and how they're handled.

Black Angus steer that won the show sold for $14,250.00 at the Denver Nationals but was really a Charolais:

This was back in the days when there was a Chianina bull in a pen at every Registered Angus outfit. :lol:

I kinda figured this to be the ultimate compliment towards the Char bunch.

Some of the high name Herefords were Simmental in disguise also.

Funny how those "Herefords" produced gray rat-tails when put on Angus cows....

There are some good individuals in that pedigree but Bando 598 and New Design 1407 turns me off.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

We kept quite a few EXT daughters years back. Good feet and udders. Disposition wasn't bad, except for some of them would get upset if they had to calve in a barn. Much better if they didn't.

I agree with the bando 598 has a son of his years ago and some really disappointing calves from him no experience with the new design bull

I know of some real nice Hoover Dam bred heifers that are real nice cattle. We will see about longevity and docility as time passes. But they look good and their first sets of calves were top notch.

I liked the comment littlejoe made about handling cattle. We have neighbors that could turn the highest docility scored cow into Godzilla within a week. And they can't figure out why their cattle are breechy, wild rascals??? To me, while some lines can have the tendency to produce more waspy cows, how you handle stock has a lot more to do with it. And if you find one or three that are high-headed knotheads, put them on the next truck to town.
A poor ride beats a great walk any day!

Funny you should mention the grays out of Herefords. I don't have a dog in this fight, but the Hereford bulls now with with the google red around the eyes and no feather necks, are the same bulls that my dad bought yrs ago from the Arnold Brothers at their fleck vie influenced Simmental sale.
