WE do quite a bit of monitoring frame scoreup here and try to keep out cattle right around 6-6.5 frame. Others that are smaeller than that end up going for feeders. I have a computer spreadsheet that will calculate fram score once you enter the age and hip height. If anyone is interested in it let me know.
