Q & A Transcript with Jerry Hargis 08/05/08

This is the questions asked to Jerry Hargis of Hargis Ranch. These questions were listed from Members of the BSC.


1. Jerry how long did it take you to back your NEW truck into a poll after getting it? Well it was actually Kenny Jack's truck, so worse - and he only had it one day before we left for Albequerque, where I backed out of the hotel parking lot and put a little dent in the bumper - luckily it was not very noticeable. I think me and Cord had other things on our mind.


2. Have you ever ran into a new trailer that belonged to your good buddy from VA , and if so, how did he retaliate? No, I pulled up behind him at a red light and slightly nudged it for laughs, and the crazy mountain man threw his truck in reverse, red lined it, popped the clutch, squalled tires and slammed into my truck - not to mention a cop was in the lane next to us.

Have you ever driven all the way to VA to pick up a cow and then your buddy couldnt even catch her ? Yup... not very happy at that moment.

Have you ever had the pleasure of watching me snow ski ? looked like a duck out of water

Have you ever eaten a good meal out here in the mountains ? There are very good restaurants in Virginia, and some good "mama's kitchens" One of my favorite parts of traveling is meeting good people and eating good food!

3. Which bull did you prefer using as a sire A6 or Gunslinger? And Why? A very strong argument could be given for both bulls. I like Gunslinger just a little more, I like the conformation of his calves out of our cows, and he seems to put a little more jump into the bucking styles of his calves. Not to take anything away from A6 though, some of his bulls and cows were very nice - sons and daughters of both bulls are proving to be very good producers themselves, which is a trait that all great sires should have.

4. How many years have you been in the bucking bull business, and what major changes have you seen in the business in the last 5 years? I've been doing this for 25 years - I got my first cow at age 4 and have had cows every since. My dad has been doing this for close to 40 years though, and I have learned a great deal from him - for that I am very fortunate.

The biggest change is the internet. Years ago, individuals like Derrel knew everyone in the business, and knew where to go to get the best cattle. He traded a lot of bulls and was able to sell them to those that needed them, because they did not always know where to go to find them. Nowadays, anyone and everyone can get on a computer, find anyone in the bull business they want, and make a phone call themselves. We used to get a lot of calls from people wanting us to sell their cattle, and still do some, but now anyone can put a calf on the auction sites with a video, and they sell themselves. Another huge change the the number of people in the business. Years ago, very few people were raising bucking bulls and there was a large market for any kind of bull. Now someone in every town raises bulls and there are a large number of bulls on the market. It makes me realize that I have to work that much harder to keep on top of things to still be able to raise one that stands out. But above all of that, the absolute best change is the money involved. I think the year was 1979, Dad had the highest selling bull at the Ardmore Bucking Bull sale and it sold for $1,000. I sold my first bull calf when he turned 2 for $1,000 and I was doing good at that time.

5. What bloodline, if you could only list one, would you say helped your program the most? It's hard to say, because if we had not had the foundation that we did at the time we used a certain bull, then he may not have helped us as much, but the first bull that helped us was -59, a runner-up PRCA bull of the year that Plummer raised. Benny Buetler owned him at the time and let us use him. After that, Panhandle Slim was a great asset - Dad bought him from Ronnie Roach in a set of 2-year-old bulls. We bred to him then and again later in his life. Then we got A6 from Alex and we had some very nice offspring out of him. The outside bull that probably helped us the most was Gunslinger. David let us use him one year and the outcome was terrific - we skipped a year with him and was going to breed to him again, but he passed on. Fortunately, we got a strong set of bulls and cows from that outcross. Gunslinger crossed very well with the cows we had at that time.



At what age do you breed your heifers? It depends on the heifer, some mature earlier than others, grow out faster and may be ready by the time they're long yearlings - others might need to be a late 2.
Cody Walton



6. I know the -0 cows were some of the best cows, which bulls do you think crossed up best on them? I like A6 over those cows.

and have you ever run out of diesel and used bucking bull flanks tied together toget towed into the fuel station? Haha, ya that was the last time I will ever say "Heck, the fuel light just came on, I can make it another 30 miles." After traveling a lot of miles and staying gone a lot, a person gets to see some crazy things, but also gets in the middle of those situations sometimes.
Justin Crawford



7. Which sire A6,Trick or Treat,Gunslinger,outlaw,Playboy,or any of the others that Darrel and you used produced the best cows? That's a tough question, out of the best end of cows that we have, there's probably one out of each of the sires that we've used over the past years. Overall, I would probably go with Up in Smoke, which is a Gunslinger son, but the Panhandle Slim cows were good to us for a lot of years. I think the Gunslinger sons, like the one you have Bob, are outproducing Gunslinger himself and that's why I like them so well and why I would choose Up in Smoke over Gunslinger.
Bob Wilfong



8. About this old man # 39 is his brand. How was he when he was younger. Terry Walls hauled him and his dam is Limon Lime and his sire is unknown to me ?

9. If you were starting out today and could only buy
1 cow, where you you go and what would it be out of? Well, everyone has different ideas of where they want to go with their herd, so my advice is probably not for everyone and I know this sounds biased, but I would go to Derrel Hargis. I've seen a lot of cattle and a lot of breeding programs and I would buy a heifer off of him every chance I had. The main reason is because he has been in the business so long, has bred to so many great bucking bulls of our times, he has had great success and he has done all that while only keeping around 30 head of cows. He has culled hard for many years now, and has a great set of cows; every cow on his place is one that most would like to have. The ones he culls are better than a lot of others' keepers, but he'll also sell one of the best ones - I don't say that to be arrogant in any way, but he is extremely picky on the ones he keeps and has sold some heifers that I would've loved to have.
Robert Mock



10. I cant afford to breed to A6, what son of A6 would you breed to? H20

11. If you were starting out today and could only buy
1 cow, where you you go and what would it be out of???
In reference to your answer to this question

Which of today' bulls would you use to breed this one cow with? Calicoat Jack. He's a bull Dad raised out of Playboy and a Neon Nights cow that was out of one of the best Panhandle Slim cows. Kenny Jack now owns him now and it may not be too easy to breed to him. Next to him, I would say Up in Smoke.
Robert McCathern



12. At what age do you buck your bulls? heifers? How many chances do they have to prove themselves? We buck bulls and heifers about a month or so after weaning them. We give them a chance to get on feed good and show them the arena a time or two. Pretty much, they've got one shot. If one doesn't buck then, he's going to the sale barn. Luckily that doesn't happen too often, and there's somewhere to go with everything. Every once in awhile, you'll miss one, but if you pay attention to the way they buck, their conformation and their attitude, you know from that first time how they're going to be when they're grown.
Mike Carreon



13. What is your philosophy on selling semen? Lots of it at a lower price or not so much of it at a higher price and why? That pretty much depends on how much money is in my bank account - haha! I usually try to not to sell much to keep the price up, especially if I own the bull, that way there should be a higher demand for the calves that I have and they may bring a little more. I don't like charging a lot for semen, although I do on El Presidente, because I want everything I have to be affordable.


14. What do you do to condition your young bulls for performance, nutrition, excersise?

Most of our young bulls stay out in the pasture, and exercise themselves. They are wild, so they move around they pasture a lot during the day, plus they fight and buck and play a lot. Once they're up older and have to stay in a pen for awhile if we're hauling them, I'll jog them a little. For nutrition, a bull needs good grain and hay from the time they're weaned. Also, the addition of the War Zone supplements to our feed has greatly helped bulls grow muscle and mature faster.

billsummers: I hate Blue
[Hotflash entered room]
Summerrain411: Jerry how long did it take you to back your new truck into a pole after getting it?
[poppybull entered room]
JerryHargis: Actually, it was Kenny Jack's truck, so worse - it was one day old when we took it to Albequerque, me and Cord were backing out of the parking lot and I put a little dent in the bumper
poppybull: big dent
JerryHargis: nah, little one
Summerrain411: Question 2 Have you ever ran into a new trailer that belonged to your good buddy from Va and if so how did he retailiate it?

Summerrain411: Have you ever driven all the way to Va to pick up a cow and then your buddy couldnt even catch her?
[NABOO entered room : John Carew Carew, He's Bigger Than Me And You, He's gonna score one or two, John Carew Carew]
JerryHargis: Yup... not too happy about that one... took awhile for me to cool off!
Summerrain411: Question 3 Which bull did you prefer using as a sire A6 or Gunslinger? And Why?
[Black_Knight entered room : Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas. -- Stalin]
[Black_Knight left room. : The production of too many useful things results in too many useless people. == Karl Marx]
JerryHargis: A good arguement could be made for both bulls. I like Gunslinger a little more, but the two of them crossed works great. I like Gunslinger's calves conformation and bucking style a little more
JerryHargis: Both bulls sons and daughters are proving themselves are producers as well, and that's a trait that every great sire should have
[woody- entered room]
Summerrain411: Question 4 How many years have you been in the bucking bull business and what major changes have you seen in the business in the last 5 yrs?
JerryHargis: I have been doing it 25 years, I got my first cow at age 4 and have been at it every ince. Dad has been at it almost 40 years. The biggest change is the internet... that has changed the buying and selling game so much for us. Has made it a lot harder on the trading end of it. Also, so many people ar
JerryHargis: are in it these days, the market is a lot different
JerryHargis: Also, the money is huge now. Back in 1979, I think was the year - Dad had the highest selling bull at the Ardmore Bull sale and it sold for $1,000
JerryHargis: I sold my first bull calf when he turned two for $1,000 and that was doing good.
Summerrain411: Question 5 What bloodline, if you could only list one, would you say helped your program the most?

[flyinhigh left room.]
JerryHargis: But probably the most influential outside woud be Gunslinger - David let us use him and it was a great deal
JerryHargis: Unfortunately he died before we used him again, but his genetics are evident in a lot that we have now
[flyinhigh entered room]
Summerrain411: Question 6 I know the -0 cows were some of the best cows, which bulls do you think crossed up best on them?
[mrr entered room]
JerryHargis: I like A6 over those cows

[!**James85**! left room.]
Summerrain411: Question 7 Which sire A6, trick or treat, gunslinger, outlaw, playboy, or any of the others that Derrel and you used produced the best cows?
JerryHargis: That's a tough question... out o the best end of cows that we have, there's probably one out of each of those bulls and others we've used over the past few years... Overall I would go with Up in Smoke, a Gunslinger son, but the Slim cows were good to us for a lot of years. I like the Gunslinger sons
[cole entered room]
[CaseyN entered room]
CALAMAITYJANE: Its about bucking bulls
[cole left room.]
JerryHargis: There's a question above to explain
Summerrain411: Question 8 About this old man #39 is his brand, how was he when he was younger, Terry Walls hauled him and his dam is Limon Lime, his sire is unknown?
[STXJ entered room]
Summerrain411: kick him
JerryHargis: Well, I'm on the road and didn't get a chance to look at the picture - please check with me next week and I'll check into it.
CaseyN: Hey Bull Man ! You Know who this is !!
CALAMAITYJANE: i am so sary sr
JerryHargis: What's up, Mr. Northcutt?
[dscattle entered room]
Summerrain411: Question 9 If you were starting out today and could only buy 1 cow, where would you go and what would it be out of?
CaseyN: Just checking in I know your full of knowledge or atleast full !!
JerryHargis: Well, everyone has a different direction on where they're headed with their breeding program, so my advice might not work for everyone...
[tml entered room]
[Alexander entered room]
JerryHargis: and I know this may sound bias, but I would go to Derrel Hargis - he has been in the business so long, has bred to so many great bucking bulls of our time, has had great success...
[Alexander left room.]
JerryHargis: and he has done it with only 30 cows on average...
JerryHargis: He has culled hard for many years and has a great set of cows...
[Joe_Smoe left room.]
JerryHargis: He also will sell you the best one in the pasture, not just a cull
JerryHargis: he has sold many cows and heifers that I would've loved to own
[billsummers left room.]
[joe_smoe entered room]
[billsummers entered room]
[Hotflash left room.]
Summerrain411: Question 10 I cant afford to breed to A6, what son would you breed to ?
JerryHargis: H20
[Hotflash entered room]
JerryHargis: I believe Accomozzo has him now
Summerrain411: In reference to the cow question, buying just one, which of 'todays' bulls would you use to breed this one cow with ?
[poppybull left room.]
[poppybull entered room]
JerryHargis: I would breed to Calicoat Jack - he's a bull Derrel raised out of Playboy and a Neon Nights cow, that was out of one of the best Slim cows...
[peycashkatz entered room]
JerryHargis: Kenny Jack owns him now and it may be hard to get at him.
[PPC left room.]
JerryHargis: right behind him, I would go with Up in Smoke
Summerrain411: At what age do you buck your bulls? How many chances do they have to prove themselves?
[ron_emberton left room.]
[PPC entered room]
[peycashkatz left room.]
[ron_emberton entered room]
JerryHargis: I buck them about a month after we wean them, just after they get on feed good.. They get one shot - anything that doesn't buck goes to the sale barn. Luckily we don't have too many of those, they usually fit for someone. Every once in awhile you'll miss one, but if pay close attention, you know fro
JerryHargis: you know how they're going to be when they get older
[peycashkatz entered room]
Summerrain411: Do you buck your heifers too?
[dscattle left room.]
[davefrom entered room]
[Leb entered room]
CALAMAITYJANE: BRB
JerryHargis: Yes, always - same criteria goes for them. Some don't and I understand, they sometimes buck so hard it's a wonder we don't hurt more
[BWCATTLECO entered room]
Summerrain411: Question 13 What is your philosophy on selling semen?
[woody- left room.]
[woody- entered room]
[jjh entered room]
[nrscindy entered room]
JerryHargis: That all depends on how much money is in my bank account!!! I like to make it affordable on most bulls... but sometimes I keep the value high so I can keep a high demand for that bull's calves.
[txangel entered room]
[wolcik entered room]
JerryHargis: Bulls that haven't been out much could be sold cheaper to get them out there
JerryHargis: just depends on the bull
Summerrain411: Question 14 What do you do to condition your young bulls for performance, nutrition, excersise?
[mrr left room.]
JerryHargis: I really don't do anything when they're young - ours are so wild, they move around the pasture a lot - plus they fight, buck & play a lot which keeps them in shape... but
[peycashkatz left room.]
JerryHargis: when they get older and on the truck - they're sometimes up in the lot more, so I jog them a little... for nutrition
JerryHargis: all bulls need to be on good grain and hay
JerryHargis: The War Zone supplement has helped us a great deal
JerryHargis: it puts on the muscle faster and bulls mature faster
Summerrain411: Ok thats all the pre questions, thank you Jerry very much, now yall may ask other questions if you like
RJP: Jerry, out of all the bulls you and derrel have raised which do you think was the best all time bucker?
[ohiobullrider entered room]
[ohiobullrider left room.]
[ohbullrider entered room]

CALAMAITYJANE: Hi IBR
woody-: 622 Night train how did he buck? Have you seen any calves out of him, if so how were they?
[Super_woman2007 entered room : Yo what uuuuuupppppp !]
JerryHargis: there was also a little small bull like Blueberry, H92, he got a little higher in the air - unfortunately he died at a young age
woody-: i have him on my cows.
[Super_woman2007 left room. : I outta here yo peace out !]
[You are ignoring Super_woman2007 now]
[flyinhigh left room.]
KEITH-NABOURS: you want to breed to little white soldier?
JerryHargis: Night Train was a nice bull - his calves look good
RJP: thanks jerry, come to see me
[flyinhigh entered room]

[KEITH-NABOURS left room.]
[peycashkatz entered room]
[AKCT left room.]
JerryHargis: H21 was a great little bull. No, we're going to the team bullriding in Guthrie on that weekend
BWCATTLECO: I may have missed this but , what do you think is ur all time best cow yall have raised
[AKCT entered room]
woody-: What is the bull you sent to Dillion down here in Louisiana.?
[peycashkatz left room.]
[van2 left room.]
[RJP left room.]
[van2 entered room]
JerryHargis: The bull I sent to Dillon was Up in Smoke top and bottom - same cow as the War Zone bull that did great in the futurities - I really like the bull
[JOEshaw entered room]
woody-: He sure is a good made sucker.
JerryHargis: the best cow would probably go to -0 Grandma - although I have an A6 over Gunslinger that goes back to Blueberry's mama that I really like, she's just young and needs to prove herself
JerryHargis: thanks woody
[Leb left room.]
Summerrain411: Jerry you have done great with this, thank you so much!
JerryHargis: no problem - I hope everyone got something out of it
Summerrain411: Im happy everyone joined us
[PPC left room.]
Summerrain411: I think it would be hard not to leave with something
woody-: Jerry , do you have bull that you lease during breeding season?
CALAMAITYJANE: Mr. Jerry thank you so mucn for coming on here and taking time to chat tonitht.
JerryHargis: Yes, that bull Dillon had is available at times, but we also have many other bulls for lease.
[ohbullrider left room.]
JerryHargis: Thank you very much for having me.
[STXJ left room.]
woody-: Ill be looking for one in march next yr.
[tml left room.]
JerryHargis: Give me a call and we'll find something to fit your cows
[joe_smoe left room.]
woody-: I m gonna try to ride up with Jeff Parker at the end of September.
genebaldwin: Jerry, what do you think of 610 Arctic Cat as a sire
JerryHargis: Well, I haven't seen any of his calves, but he was good for a lot of years - he should put some of that longevity in his calves
[CaseyN left room.]
CALAMAITYJANE: For some one that is starting out in the bucking bull biz and they won't to start bulls to buck the bulls at home to help out high school kids what blood lines would you try to use?
[peycashkatz entered room]
JerryHargis: You just want some practice type bulls?
CALAMAITYJANE: yes sir
[CSPRINGS entered room]
JerryHargis: Well, I would hate to name a bloodline and call it just good enough for practice bulls...
[peycashkatz left room.]
JerryHargis: almost everyone raising bulls usually has nice spinners in their pen somewhere
[Hotflash left room.]
JerryHargis: Pretty much every bloodline can't be perfect on every calf, so there will be practice bulls out of every sire
CALAMAITYJANE: but a little bit better than a practice bull. we started out with sale barn bulls and we need to try to get some thet will stay in a spin
[CSPRINGS left room.]
[Hotflash entered room]
[NABOO left room. : We beat the sh*t 5-1 ! ! !]
JerryHargis: I think the Houdini type bulls have a lot of natural spin
CALAMAITYJANE: yes sir i under stan i ask that question wrong
[poppybull left room.]
[poppybull entered room]
[bulljunkie entered room]
CALAMAITYJANE: ok yall lets get to asking Mr. Jerry some questions wile we have him in here
[van2 left room.]
CALAMAITYJANE:
[ron_emberton left room.]
billsummers: Jerry, Did you ever beed to Spin Cycle?
[VidaleMcCracken entered room]
[ron_emberton entered room]
JerryHargis: I had him on my cows all this year
genebaldwin: Jerry, what is your opinion on linebreeding?
billsummers: I have acouple calves, I really likethem
JerryHargis: I always liked the bull and saw some calves out of him last year, and they were really nice
[patrick539 entered room]
JerryHargis: Line-breeding works when used correctly
billsummers: THey are really nice
[kurt entered room]
[PerfumeDVioleta entered room]
[patrick539 left room.]
[poppybull left room.]
PerfumeDVioleta greets all.
[davefrom left room.]
woody-: Some bulls dont buck with a dummy , but buck with a rider . You said yall cull on one trip . I know you cant keep them all ,but that to me seems a little quick.
genebaldwin: Is breeding a bull to his half sisters considered correct linebreeding
[poppybull entered room]
[PerfumeDVioleta left room.]
woody-: are yall leaning more twords futirty bulls than Clasic type bulls?
JerryHargis: well, I don't buck them with a dummy - I use a horse flank where a bull rope goes. It's a lot different than a dummy
woody-: ok
[wolcik left room.]
kriswells: How much if any DR. J blood is in your program
JerryHargis: I usually don't breed to a half-sister, it doesn't work a lot of times
JerryHargis: I lean more towards classic bulls
woody-: no weight just a flank?
[wolcik entered room]
JerryHargis: We really don't have any Dr. J left in our blood - we used him one year
genebaldwin: What do you consider correct line breeding Jerry?
JerryHargis: Yes, just a flank - no weight. You can use some weight, like sand bags or something to that affect
woody-: ok
CALAMAITYJANE: Mr. Jerry what is the defferents in a horse flank that a bummy? More like what are you looking for when you use a horse flank and how old are the calfs?
JOEshaw: theirs a few bloodlines that have been working out their and every new breeder has been jumping on the band wagon of their fav is it worth trying to come up with your own bloodline or should a guy just stick to whats been working
[jjh left room.]
[kriswells left room.]
JerryHargis: I don't like using a dummy on young bulls, for a few reasons, even though it's not too heavy, it's not a good feel up there like a cowboy would be
[kriswells entered room]
JerryHargis: Joe, it all depends on where you're wanting to go with your cattle... you have to go with what works, but also
JerryHargis: you have to pay attention and put in new blood from time to time

VidaleMcCracken: Jerry you never fail to amaze me your that great. LOL
Summerrain411: I will have the transcript up early in the morning on the message board
[Leb entered room]
JerryHargis: sorry, back to the line-breeding question - grandfather to granddaughter or sometimes sire to daughters can work
[BWCATTLECO left room.]
nrscindy: Thanks Marcia
[AKCT left room.]

[AKCT entered room]
VidaleMcCracken: I just got here sorry I was late
[BWCATTLECO entered room]
Summerrain411: yall going to write sentences and no cpy and paste LOL
nrscindy: Oh no... not the sentences!!!!!
JerryHargis: Gene, you have to be careful - when line-breeding, you can multiply the wrong genetics just as easy as you can the genetics you're after - do a lot of research on the bloodlines
VidaleMcCracken: Jerry how many Calicoat calves did yall get this year? Bulls and heifers
[van2 entered room]
genebaldwin: for example: breeding a linebred whitewater son to a linebred Arctic Cat grandaughter?
jjh: I like Spin Cycle calves too Bill.I'm also late.
CALAMAITYJANE: I would make Jr write 1000 sentences by hand not type and mail them to you SR when he has them done. LOL
[kriswells left room.]
JerryHargis: Me and Kenny have 14, he had a few more than that - got an even mix of bulls and heifers
[dustin left room.]
[Leb left room.]
JerryHargis: Gene, I really remember the exact breeding on Artic Cat
[dustin entered room]
JerryHargis: sorry - CAN'T remember
VidaleMcCracken: I missed what yall bred to this year if it was asked, so what are yall breeding to?
genebaldwin: I bred my Arctic Cat son to his half sisters, and every single calf bucked, next year I was of breeding to a Whitewater son, out of a Whitewater daughter
JerryHargis: We bred to Spin Cycle and War Zone
[dustin left room.]
genebaldwin: 610 is a son of #25 Dark Shadows, and is supposed to be out of a -90 daughter
[RickyS entered room]
[billsummers left room.]
JerryHargis: If it works, then it works great - sometimes it does
genebaldwin: As a note, im not a big fan of linebreeding, but I wanted to experiment with it with half my herd.
JerryHargis: Vidale, Dad bred to Bullfrog - a Slim son and also a young Up in Smoke son
poppybull: Jerry, when u talk to KJ,
BWCATTLECO: Jerry do you still have 551 Gotcha, do u have any calves out of him
poppybull: please call me
JerryHargis: OK, Cliff, I will - I really want to get a deal together with y'all next year!

JerryHargis: It's gonna be hard to get my bulls bucking good enough to compliment them next year
poppybull: hope it works for us
[nrscindy left room.]
VidaleMcCracken: Thanks, thanks for coming on here. Tell Kenny Jack I said hello and thanks for his generosity. : ) I hope to see you guys later this year, probably be at the finals before I can break loose and go anywhere
CALAMAITYJANE: Mr. Jerry when you take your bucking bulls to an event and you see someone treating your bull to rulf eather in the back pens or in the chuts how would you handle it?
AKCT: Thanks, learn something at each these sessions
VidaleMcCracken: Jerry your full of it
JerryHargis: Good deal, Vidale
genebaldwin: Jerry, for someone just getting started, would you recommend they but 10 cows from 1 successful breeding program, or buy 2 cows from 5 different successful programs
[Tyra_uk_19 entered room]
JerryHargis: Well, I never like to see someone mistreated their bulls - if it's bad enough, I'll say something to them.
JerryHargis: Gene, you could argue either point very well. If you had a set all bred alike, it would be easier to find a bull to fit them, but
[DarkRaven entered room]
JerryHargis: if you buy one or two here and there, you might be able to get a better set
[DarkRaven left room.]

[Hard8 entered room]
[Tyra_uk_19 left room.]
genebaldwin: I agree,
[AKCT left room.]
JerryHargis: Also, when selling them, not everyone may want the bloodlines you have, so it may be good to expand out
genebaldwin: But then you would almost have to AI in order to match each female to the best potential sire
genebaldwin: Good point
JerryHargis: Correct... bulls like Up in Smoke that fit just about any cow are very hard to come by
