    There is a glitch in the frame score calculation. For ex, calculated FS on a 52″ 6 yo bull is 47.8…..should be 3-3.5 FS per tables. Noticed the same thing on the Noble version of the app.

      Thanks for your comment Doug…I emailed you some reference material that addresses your observation. As I understand it, there are various calculations used to calculate frame score by sex and age; all the information I’ve reviewed only goes up to 48 months of age for a mature bull, not the 72 months of age that you used in your example.
