Chisum is hard to beat. I have sold and saved several bulls out of him. And his heifers are top notch

You could also try Summit from Select Sires. Whitlock and Summit are half brothers.
Summit doesn't have the $B value that Whitlock has but his HP is 12.1. His daughters have made him popular.
He's on my short list to use because of his good reports. His $W is $89.75 but the epd that makes you pick your spots with him is SC....he's .24. A man who collects bulls told me as long as it isn't a negative it's OK. He warned me off bulls with extremely high SC. Once again it points out the thought of avoiding extremes. I also like Chisum by the way....Check out Genex on Facebook and there is a video with really nice Chisum calves...look to me almost what you would expect out of Charlo.

I prefer bulls with above breed average SC, but it seems bulls above top 3% SC are not fertility improvers.

Prime example:
Mytty In Focus
sc 1.97 top 2% .97 accuracy and bottom 5% HP .82 accuracy

GAR Sure Fire
Top 1% sc 2.48 yet below breed average hp (62 percentile) with 47% acc. so his hp could easily drop even lower
