I got it. I was looking at a bull through select sires named Six Shooter his EPD's are: CE 16.5 acc. .38, BW -0.6 acc. .72, WW 43.8 acc. .59, YW 79.5 acc. .52, MCE 2.7 acc. .18, Milk 5.3 acc. .26, MWW 27.2 acc. ,27, CW 4.2 acc. .33, %RC .28 acc. .29 MARB .18 acc. .33
He is Homo polled and Homo Black. How important are the acc. numbers? How can I get a list of straw prices from Select Sires? What do you think? These are EPD's for 2002.
