Could do with her going incalf shortly as she's lost time already and I should have took action sooner.
Metricure maybe.

My ai man reckons he is leaving lovely stock. I considered using him but I just didn’t really like the look of him. Allot of calves registered to him so he’s obviously very popular. Think he might suit a shapely cow better than a plain cow.

Growthy calves though. Works well on my cows they wouldn't be as well bred as yours Tanko.Have bought 40 straws for this year if that tells you anything
A short gestation beef bull would be a good option
What type cow does he suit best?

His figures are savage. Bottom 2% of the breed for calving at 4.3% and yet top 3% for carcass weight. That's just unbelievable.

Anybody have Liseron and Lapon calves, have a Liseron heifer here a week old, nice calf. Used Fiston last year on same cow, resulting in nice shapely heifer but I think Liseron would be a better bull to keep a replacement off?

Ring your AI in advance as I think he's preorder, so that's €22 plus €25 for the call out. That's with Munster AI.

Have used him this year on ped heifers and looking forward to what he produces. The great thing is he is a proven bull in France and doing the business and not a star in the sky one season wonder and price was good.

He’s a son of Pinay who has consistently kept high stars
Think someone has a bull off Pinay & were impressed with the offspring.

Can you let us know how the heifers get on
