I like the cow and the calf. I have wondered whether Seedstock or Sensation was the way to go but I am leaning Seedstock.
I saw some other bull today that was a +45 for milk. Playbook is young enough where that number could drop a bit.
I know I don't want a cow high 30's, if I can help it. But, if I do have one there are options to drop it down (I think I could fix that with Confidence 0100 or Butkus). I hate to hear a bull is not getting pregnancies but I know there was a question about Hoover Dam and the person having problems was in Australia.


We have never used Sensation. I know that Sensation is more Calving Ease. Kelly really liked Seedstock because he didn’t sale many females. He said he kept most of them. We used him because he combines Schaffs two best cows.
We really liked our Cowboy Up calves also. They are built a lot like the Playbooks

I also looked at Fortress and I like Stevenson Turning Point but he doesn't have enough milk.
The problem with the older bloodlines is that they seem to lack growth and milk.
They add eye appeal for sure.

Freighttrain,
Pretty good looking bull.
I know there was a debate about his milk epd but someone on here wrote that
his mature weights were moderate so his calves would be easy keepers.

Yes he really has shaped up, I think he might be a solid bet for some large framed females. I would like to hear reports on his daughters
