Well, I love reds and I have a market for good ones. I use Mack AF who is a brother to Dominance (same sire). I get really, really good females. I don't dare leave any males in tact because of his numbers. I don't worry about his CE, but I try to put him on females that will average out the epd's a little better. I have other red bulls that I use (Pendleton, Red Answer, Amigo.
I am thinking about trying Volk Backdraft or HILB Royal Rumble (but they are both EO sons and I love to breed to EO)
Pendleton and Red Answer are red full brothers to Bullseye right?

Yes, you are correct.
That Werning farm is pumping out top sires left & right. Most of their hot sires are out of the 8543A cow. EO (Executive Order) is also out of 8543A cow.

Jeane, If you want to talk about probabilities, how's this.. Two heifers, born a year apart on the same hour of the same calendar day, both horned (both parents hetero polled, also 25% chance)

Good looking calf. Up here the best looking Simmental bulls are fullbloods.
I appreciate the thickness of the fullbloods for a commercial operation, I just can't stand their ugliness! That big head, sloppy front end, round bone, and some have the Limi bubble butt. Obviously, there have to be some that are more eye appealing bulls by now, but ones I see in studs for AI are mostly still pretty ugly (to me). All in the eye of the beholder.
I'll be sure to continue to not post any pictures of my FB bulls :lol:

No no. Post them. I fully appreciate well muscled meat wagons. I just mean they are not for me in my breeding program.
