To pick a bull, I like to look at what he will be breeding. Find their weakness and then find the bull that corrects that weakness without negatively impacting too many other traits. I don't know what your herd weakness's are, so I go to plan B which is to find a bull that will add $$ to your pocket by increasing production and overall longevity.
Reverend has a positive productive life and high grazing merit. Looks like he should also improve udders.
Deuce is also positive on udders and protein.
Def Leppard would probably be my third choice.
Peer is negative on productive life, milk, protein, and udders. His conception rates and fat are good if those are the things you need to improve.
Corn Pop has the lowest production and udder scores. His productive life expectancy is excellent, but I personally do not want to milk lower producers with poor udders for a longer period of time.
Just my opinion based on the info I have been presented. You have more knowledge of the actual animals and their dams, so sometimes that can override what is on paper.
