American Angus Association Releases Updated EPDs

Mon, 23 Jan 2012 10:52:54 CST

American Angus Association Releases Updated EPDs The American Angus Association's spring 2012 Sire Evaluation Report and updated National Cattle Evaluation (NCE) expected progeny differences (EPDs) are now available online at the American Angus website. While NCE EPDs are now generated on a weekly basis, a biannual report is still printed.

Accessing the Sire Evaluation Report online is the fastest and easiest way to get the latest performance information on sires in the Angus breed. It allows you to specify ranges of EPDs and to sort bulls that qualify within those ranges. The evaluation also includes dollar value indexes ($Values), expressed in dollars per head, to assist commercial beef producers in selection decisions. Economic assumptions used to develop $Values are based on a three-year rolling average, which was also updated in the spring 2012 report.

The Spring 2012 Sire Evaluation Report lists data on 2,146 sires from a total of 216,873 sires in the Association database. The Young Sire Supplement also included in the report lists 2,654 bulls.

Printed copies will be available by request. Active members who returned their blue request cards to receive a printed copy of the fall 2011 report will receive the spring 2012 report automatically. All other producers who want a printed report may request it by contacting Brenda Weigart at 816-383-5144.

For more information regarding expected progeny differences (EPDs), the NCE or performance evaluation, visit www.angus.org .

The American Angus Association serves nearly 30,000 members across the United States and Canada. It provides programs and services to farmers, ranchers and others who rely on the power of Angus to produce quality genetics for the beef industry and quality beef for consumers.
