I've got five Shorthorn heifers to breed this summer and am considering AI rather than rent a bull. Does anyone have any experience with the two shorthorn bulls carried by Select Sires: JSF Gauge and JSF Goldenrod?

My main aim is to have healthy calves and live cows, so calving ease and low birth weight have been what I've been looking at. However, both of these bulls seem pretty similar in those areas to my untrained eyes. Thanks.

Both fit the CE/LBW criteria, and accuracies are pretty good, considering the breed.
Early on, there was no way I'd have considered using Gauge, but his MCE epd has seen major improvements...
Looks like Select has two pretty solid Shorthorn candidates in their lineup now.
