Here's a link to an Angus publication called "Bull Buying Strategies..." It has an explanation of Angus EPDs. I think you can print it out. EPDs can't be compared across breed. For example, a Charolais bull with a 0 birthweight EPD is the equivalent of an Angus BW EPD of 5. But EPDs are figured pretty much the same within each breed. Good luck.... <A HREF="http://www.angus.org/pubs/bullbuy.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.angus.org/pubs/bullbuy.htm</A>
