I"d be curious enough to ask "why". Do you have a long lost supply of semen on Bob?

From what I remember, the cows were average looking with thickness, good udders, without any glitter. I do not know how they held up. We had a grandson for a short time before he broke his part and ended his career. Never got enough calves from him to have an opinion. The stories on the old bull were interesting. That's about it for me.

I can never seem to track down if Emulous 186; 6011043, still has semen around...likely is a good bull; daughters were good; ...Emulous 30; 5869738 more highly promoted as 4.89, another double bred bob of k pride was worthless...

Would be nice if the AAA would correct Emulous Bob of K Pride's sire on the pedigree.

there's supposedly a prominent angus sire that is double bred enjouluer (fullblood maine anjou), probably others since some people went to the trouble of bloodtyping after introgression of maine's. they would have had a hard time doing it as maine's have scurs.

Carlton bred one of his top cows to Emulous
7000, the first CMS, and the natural
protectiveness of this mother nearly wrote the
end of the Emulous line.
"Bob was born in the highway pasture late
in the summer. If you didn't find them pretty
quickly there, you didn't find them alive," says
Carlton. With the hot weather and humidity,
screwworms had become a problem. Emulous
Bob's mother had hidden him, so on the third
day Carlton knew he was going to have to outsmart
the cow. He did, late in the night, when
she finally went to her calf. Carlton was right,
Bob was covered with screwworms. After
being submerged in soapy warm water, Bob
was free of the worms, but not before he lost the tips of his ears and most of his tail (thus
earning his name)
The Bob line has contributed not only feedlot
and carcass performance and superior maternal
traits, but has appealed to the breeders
who participate in shows as well. Emulous Bob
of K Pride descendants have been popular in
both performance and show ring circles. He
bequeathed the genetics that would produce
greats such as Emulous TN 70, Early Sunset
Emulous 60E, PS Power Play, Lovana, Emulous
Pride 70, Ankonian Dynamo and Sayre
Patriot, to name just a few

i actually read that before you posted it. mike's comment still stands as well.

doesn't mean he's right. soon, it will be amazing how many "foreign" genes are in purebreds.

just a teaser from me; that was the talk in those days...the bulls we used at UK came from Murray...emulous 30 had holstein frame and ass, but sure did not have any milk...my buddy had some Biffle cows; just cows...Ned spent a couple of days here with me; he thought he was an "intimidator"; I thought he was funny :)
