    Double trouble BULLS

    epd's

    I bought a young angus bull with exellant epd's(high weaning and yearling weights) but now that he's two he looks like a runt. I know he's got great genetics but I dont like the looks of him. Would it still be possible for him to produce accordingly to his epd's or is he just a bad seed?
