But I'm a lousey judge of bulls.

Through experience and as Knersie said find someone to trust to help you select the right bull the first time. One thing to remember though is you will get the best advice from someone with impecable credentials who does not have a dog in THAT fight.

I am just not sure if we should breed back to the same bull this year or to try a different bull. I have looked at numerous bulls and can not decide. Thanks for the help! Much appreciated!

Somebody should correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure all the pictures I've ever seen are touched up.CowGirl005":7r2ejlf5 said:OLF, I used "Master Duty" last year, a polled hereford. He threw some nice looking calves. The AI tech picked him out only because we were failry new and were looking for calving ease for our heifers at the time.
Thanks Dun, I wouldnt think they would be photoshoped, but you never know what people will do to make money these days.
