That’s right, vast majority on here don’t have a clue what they are talking about when talking about sav genetics. There isn’t a cow in our herd that doesn’t have sav genetics in her and many of them have a large percentage. Our culls weigh 1300. There isn’t hardly a 1500lb cow on the place let alone a 1600lb one. When we sell heifer calves and bred heifers they are always at the bottom weight of what is required to get a premium price...and I’ve been avoiding his latest frame dropping genetics. I’ll be using less of his genetics in the future because he’s taking too much frame and bone out of them. At the sale Saturday and the bigger framed/boned bulls kept a really high price because there weren’t as many, they got to the second half of the rainmakers and the price really dropped
