If you breed for, or would breed for maternal value, (Good Cows), what epd would you start at, and where would you go from thre? Just wanted to get a few thoughts and opinions on who thinks what traits and epd's are important on making a good cow. If we are looking at an angus profile, I look at $EN first and go from their. Some probably will strongly disagree. If you look at a semen catalog, you can sort out bulls pretty fast if you want them to have a positive $EN, and maybe that's why I start their? That and who wants an ineffeciant, 6.5 frame cow, that has a 30+ milk epd? That is what most of those bulls with a big negative $EN are. I'm sure some do.Where do you start?
