The BioSort Look-A-Like Program
Look-A-Likes are bulls that are very similar in shape even though their weights or ages are different. We have grouped bulls into “Look Groups” if their shape scores are within a 2 shape score variation. Selecting bulls with similar shapes will improve the visual uniformity in your herd.
