Epds? Upcoming purchase.

Postby Lrj505 » Fri Sep 21, 2018 9:05 pm

Going to buy a registered bull. Wanted a simangus but can’t find any within 2 day drive (Located south of Albuquerque). Found a registered bull not to far from a local angus breeder. I don’t know what to look for as far as epds. I am not going to breed heifers, I want pounds at weaning. Here is his bloodline epd. Price is $2,000.

Depend what kind of cows they are going on. PB angus cow and sim-ang bull will have more heterosis than a pb angus bull. If you have crossbred cows a pb will improve consistency, and add some heterosis.

The bull is 3yrs 8m old and turns 4 in January. I don't see any red flags with his epds or pedigree, so no concerns there.
He should have 2nd crop calves on the ground. IF you like what you see buy him.
