Had my first Angus calf born 3 days ago. His ma and pa are both registered Angus. Do I register him, and leave him a bull and sell when he is older? just steer him and sell for feeder later? What would you all do?
That is how the number crunchers do it.Anonymous":qrno4b73 said:I know the EPDs of his sire and dam. Do I add then together and divide by 2? That is provably not right but how do you do it?
IMO He is a pretty well bred animal. Lots of good animals in hissire

Let me know what you think.
I forgot to login yesterday, o-well, am now. Have been looking into club calves some. There is only one other person around here that does that. Watched a program on RFDTV awhile back on halter breaking calves. I broke that little black one I had after that, worked out well to for the first time.

I was wondering how they come up with all of those epd numbers. Birthweight, milk, etc. I have always been curious about that!
