I agree and am right there with you.  The one thing missing is tenderness which in my opinion is the most important aspect of a satisfactory eating experience.

and yet no one is able to help. the technology is still in its infancy.  all the $ spent on genomics turned out to be that the purveyors had to teach more because the technology wasn't bringing in $. global warming tie-ins with feed efficiency didn't work.

the technology was not in a format that breeders could use other than to give away profit per head to genomics they couldn't use.

it was and still is a rating system to bottleneck breeds.

supposedly the info is there, but no way in hell will a breeder ever have access to information, different testing methods and links to those who can help them.

the system is simply too closed and the sad part is, it was funded partially by taxpayer dollars.

information is available and downloadable, but there are probably less than 10 organizations that can do anything about it outside of a university.
There is Dr. Allen Williams ultra sound which I believe I see anecdotal evidence  in animals harvested and the ultra sound readings.  Also Gerald Freye's linear measuring which I believe originated with Bonsma.

An interesting question though is Kit Pharo's. If you have 50,000lb pot loads of calves and the one has 600lb calves in it and the other is loaded with 450lb calves, which pot load would you rather receive the money for. Most years the 450lb pot load of calves will bring somewhere in the neighborhood of $15k to $20K more than the 600lb calves. Something to think about. ::)
Low maintenance, fertility and calving ease, with at least average growth is the answer to profitability. You should find that your smaller cows have better wean weight ratios because of their higher efficiency. It's a no-brainer!
Some of you N. American Shorthorn guys need to get Pharo on board. His whole philosophy of profitability, with maximum satisfaction for the producer, through easy keeping, makes a lot of sense in anybody's language.

Where specifically on the map is their true environment?   Im in North Texas 40 inches of rain a year where most people running a cow per 4 acres.   Average growth epds is plenty here.  Do you want to see some thin calves use you a trait leader growth bull.   Ill put the mid 40s WW bulls up against any here.
This is where I'm headed. Smaller cattle with better fats and higher IMF. Fertility is a big issue with me as I have had a >5yr run of below longterm average rainfall, an I see where the big cows are lacking. They skip!

I am 63 years old and have had cows since I was 9. the thing is I haven't figured anything out yet. It seems like to me that the epds are geared mostly for the packers and the feeders. I sell feeder calves. The most important numbers for me are $W and $EN within the Angus sire Summaries.
