DOORMAN


I was amazed that there was nothing recently written about him...
Do you think He will be the next Generation semex hot bull( marketing bull)? Seems he is used a lot in quebec .
How would you work with him, protect on.

Can i compare him to Mccutchen also a Bookem son? When I look to indexes Mccutchens will have a higher GTPI but doorman a little higer GPTA type...

Re:


I like Doorman because of his dam. His dam is an incredible cow to witness in person. Depending what you mate him on; he could produce very strong cows. His dam has a lot of width to her. His grandam and ggd were both 88 at 6 yrs and 86 at 6 yrs. The trouble with his pedigree is he has the following sires all within 3 generations: Bookem, Planet, Ramos, Shottle, and Goldwyn. The show crowd is mating him to Goldwyns as they think it's the next greatest cross but if you're trying to avoid massive inbreeding and already have a lot of those sires in your herd; he is going to be a bull that you will find hard to use widely in your herd. He does have a full brother named Dominic and Domestic at Semex who's genomic numbers are slightly lower but you could probably get him cheaper.

Doorman seems to be putting everything in calf for me, which is good considering his semen price. I really hope they turn out well, more than just type.

Most type breeders have hardly touched Bookem, Planet en Ramos I guess. These days it's goldwyn, atwood, goldwyn if you do type (and a little sid :-).

Good luck with the bull:heifer ratio.

From 3 batches of semen we were consistently running at 75:25 bulls:heifers. I like his calves, but think McCutchen has more ability to throw the 'special' one.

Mccutchen has been used more and longer and doesn't have near the number of "special ones".
