Hot Shot selling – 2020 NWSS “The Summit” Shorthorn Sale
We hear a lot about the direction of the breed and where we are headed. Easier fleshing, more moderate birth weight EPD, reproductive efficiency without sacrificing the things that made Shorthorns successful in the first place. But the unintended consequences of chasing those traits is showing up in cattle that grow slower, have less muscle and the real possibility that we are not making the cattle any more efficient, just smaller.
Hot Shot is a bull that meets the current trend criteria of low birth, with above breed average EPD’s. But what truly excites me and should breeders from all walks of life is he combines that with real world muscle, performance, power and yet does not sacrifice any show ring look, eye appeal or structure. Hot Shot is a standout sire that encompasses many walks of life and should leave no one feeling left out. Genetics, data, phenotype, the total package.
