We have more than 100 calves sired by All Star here at SHF. I am very pleased that calves show the growth and body type that we expected when we decided to bring in this grandson of the renowned sire, 3027. All Star has proven himself through ultrasound and actual carcass data to be a combination sire for both REA and IMF. We all need to use a complete bull that will help improve all traits in our cow herds. All Star does this. He ranks in the top 5% for all 4 of the breed indexes. From an individual trait standpoint. All Star ranks in the top 15% of the breed for Calving Ease and top 10% for YW. I honestly believe this bull's genetics need to be in most cow herds.
The first daughters have now calved, and the udders for both teat and udder shape have proven this bull will fit the time-tested quality of his sire 3027.
How to use All Star: I believe All Star should be used to hold the frame score even on the cows he is used on. He might add some weight to the mature cow, but I don't think the frame size will change. His daughters will improve their mothers. He will add carcass value for both carcass weight and quality grade. I would say his Calving Ease is border line for wide spread use on heifers.
