Does anyone have the list of which bulls sold the most semen or had the most registrations from 2017?

Thank you sir. I'm primarily interested in Black Angus but also think others may be interested in each of the different breeds. I think helpful for all of us to be looking at what is leading in each breed...because in the end, they're steaks. All of them.

I just saw that Connealy Impression has died...not sure the date. That bull has alot of daughters and grand daughters and great grand daughters in the angus herd. Tip 'O the cap to that big boy.

Tour of Duty and Absolute would be my picks in that list followed by Black Granite Ten X.

I have seen Resource and used him a bunch I like him a lot. I have not used Pay Weight but have seen some impressive calves out of him. I used Absolute this breeding season so will have calves on the ground in October, I have to admit his docility EPD has me a bit nervous. I have spent the day on cattle records always gets me excited about the upcoming calving season.

Payweight looks like your kind of bull.. Reminds me of Charlo

Payweight makes them thick and wide. He can throw a little extra brisket but I'm ok with that because he does a lot of other things right.

I am looking at this bull https://www.angus.org/Animal/EpdPedDtl. ... n2qQ%3d%3d to use on heifers I like both top and bottom of the pedigree. I am pretty anxious to see how the SAV Abundance calves look.

Edited to add Warrior at the cost per pound brisket is going for the extra brisket might be a good thing lol.

You don't hear much about Tour of Duty anymore.
How's he doing? I think some other bulls stole his thunder but I guess
that's human nature to fall in love with things/animals that are new.
