Pat Donnellan outlines the top 25 AI terminal bulls on the active bull list, as well as the top 25 AI replacement bulls on the active bull list. This list has the latest calving difficulty, calving records and price and is a useful table to use ahead of this year’s breeding season. These tables should be used as a tool when selecting this year’s sires.
