This years herd bull. I bought him from McClatchey cattle (Palisade Neb) company last summer as a pair with his dam. He's not perfect but he's very good and his EPD's are so good across the board that they look like outliers. I am especially happy that he PAP'd a 36 at 8000'.]\

Thanks Alacowman I think he's gonna be a bruiser. He's definitely an anomly in the sense that Outstanding carcass traits are almost always antagonistic to good PAP scores and he has both in spades. I plan to PAP him a second time in about a month and then again when he is 2. If his score holds up then he is something very special.

Honest comments about the bull I've posted please. He will be 3 next month. He's an AI bull off of the Judd Ranch up in Kansas. Looking to keep a couple bull calves from this year's fall herd. Added a pic of his fall kiddos. Y'all have a good day!

He looks like a decent Red Gelbvieh bull to me. Beyond that it's hard to evaluate him from that pose. I sure don't see any glaring flaws. BTW nice calf crop. Very uniform

Two year old Gelbvieh.He has a pretty balanced set of EPD's, but the real proof, his first calf crop, should start hitting the ground in about a month or so.
