I received several emails last week questioning my comments about the increased value of genetics and whether one can justify the record prices we're seeing for bulls. So, I spent some time looking at the numbers between bulls with very solid EPD profiles and comparing them to breed average bulls.
As much for simplicity as anything else, I assumed that a bull would sire 100 calves over its lifetime.
