I can not speak to this bull specificly but if I had an interest in a Shorthorn bull with a zero milk epd I would do more research before I ruled him out as a sire of replacements.First of all the true Shorthorn is a heavier milking animal on avg.than most breeds and a 0 epd might be just about right for a lot of operations.Second would be that most U.S.Shorthorn epd's have very low accuracies and can be misleading.
Not many. The breeder in the link Keren has provided is the closet one along with one of there neighbors down the street that has a different line of Shorthorns.
That semen is conveniant and available locally. So, I had considered it because my calves are all terminal. But I do need them to be at very good weights at or around 12-15 months. I can see in the graph that he wouldn't be good for my operation even for terminal calves. Thank you very much for your advise.
Sorry Barnscoop, I'm not familiar with that bull so can't help you.
I know of several Aussie sires available in the US and Canada at present that would be useful for you, as either terminal or replacements. Only one or two are available through semen companies however, alot of the others are being marketed by individuals.
