Looks like DDA has a good program, I especially appreciate the longevity built into the program. It is a very important component to have cows that will produce for a long time. This Bull does have the BW, WW to do well.
I have to pass in this bull, he has negative IMF EPD's, I sell my calves on the grid and have the forage to raise carcass calves and keep cows in good condition. I have been actually getting breedbacks within two month of calving. I am trying to move my cows up to a fall calving (October) from Feb Calving, so I turn the bulls in early.
Carcass evaluation is funy. I look for very positive REA and IMF. If I were in the Oregon Country Beef Program, I'd look for Moderate REA, as that hits their target,
