What a person desires in their herd sire generally is a weighted average of the same properties that everybody considers, but depending on your operation or what your herd is lacking of, you will weight different aspects more heavily.
1.) Composition – Today’s market likes to see long, straight, and deep cattle that are structurally sound with heavy thick frames.
2.) Disposition – Calm animals are easier to handle, train, and ultimately sell.
3.) Reproductive ability (EPD’s) – quality progeny with calving ease and a high pregnancy success rate over its herd and offspring make good producing cattle
4.) Horn – Today’s market seems to desire TTT with a mustache shape.
5.) Color – Complexity and uniqueness bring additional value.
6.) Pedigree – Consistency in an animals ancestors and progeny.
