Pleased with Paul

September 21, 2011 by  

This is JAD PAULx158-6157 as a yearling that has been working about 60 days.  I could not be any happier with this bull.  The way he looks, the way he works, the way he thinks, and the way he moves suits me just fine.  He was plain as a calf, most would say he’s plain as a yearling but unless I miss my guess, he’ll be very impressive in the next picture I take.  I’ve been at this long enough that I should know better than to make bold statements about an unproven bull, but he does please me.   I pulled a little semen this spring and used him natural and A.I.

From top to bottom this is JAD FRANCES T14, JAD ANNIE 1118, andJAD FRANCES T54  I expect you’re wondering why I would even bother to picture these thin young cows in late fall.  The entire breed is moving toward more flesh on less frame.  Most of the pictures in most of the ads show big-bellied bulls with fat butts and hips pointed to the sky and their female counterparts with short necks, and fat briskets pointing to the ground.  I’ve been there and I sure prefer these kind of cows.  They milk down a little and show a little back bone this time of year.  They’re feminine/fertile.  They’re built to walk and as I get a little older, I sure understand the advantage of less weight on a frame for longevity.
