I have bought bulls on DV auction the last 5 years from the same breeder, have never been to there ranch or sale, sale catalog will usually list sale consultants inside the front cover, give one of them a call the morning of the sale or even earlier and give them your criteria they will tell you which ones match what you are looking for. or ask the breeder in advance. I did buy a bull one year that wasn't what I typically buy for quality and breeder called next day and said "Lot such and such is not what I typically buy, I got to looking at my notes and it was not listed in recommended numbers by consultant, seller replaced with different bull", his sale is in late April and I was in the field bidding on an ipad. Breeder and his wife always deliver bulls after the sale to our place and we visit and catch up on things.
