Hi all I'm looking to buy a new bull in December and was wondering could you name a few angus bulls that have good weaning weight epd's that are at least a frame 6 or larger.

No, he will be used on half Gelbvieh cows, and the rest are purebred Angus

From perusing the pedigree and EPD's -ONLY - I would say that IF this bull has matching phenotype to his Pedigree and EPD's - you could look a lo-o-o ng time to do any better!

That pedigree will not produce 6 frame cattle, under normal circumstances.

Wean weight is only 1 factor to look at. A lot of high weaning calves fall on their face as yearlings

Those are a few that come to mind. We've used alot of mandate he is solid calving ease. We really liked the limflex bulls he sired for us. Only have one purebred angus bull out of him right now and i'm not terribly impressed with it... could be the cow tho. No calves on the ground out of Consensus yet so we will see if he lives up to the hype.
