Weve chased some bulls with super EPD’s and have been disappointed lately.
Here’s a bull calf by Tex Playbook x Seedstock first calf heifer( not crazy high EPD but really nice shape)

I've bought cleanup bulls over the years from Wilson cattle - the show folks near Indy. Their numbers are pretty bland but Wilson's is always in the hunt at Denver and other shows. Could argue that show bulls don't make good breeding bulls I suppose. My best cleanup bulls have come from his place out of Prestige and Spoiler and I'm no show guy.
Heck, Charlo's numbers are rough - except for $EN. -4 CEM? He spent a while with negative docility. 82 $B. What does 82$B mean when the latest bulls are doing 200+ and Charlo runs the table at the Schaff sale?
EPDs are an interesting thing....

Last year they had 7229, Hoover Dam and others on sale.
They have Payweight on sale....about a month after I paid full price.
Was able to get a few straws of Payweight, and got a few of Impression also.
