The American Hereford Association is excited to debut the Platinum TPRô (Total Performance Records) Breeder awards in spring 2020. Ten Hereford breeders achieved this highest recognition by the American Hereford Association in 2020. That includes three breeders from Oklahoma- Express Ranches in Yukon, J.M Birdwell in Fletcher and Loewen Herefords of Waukomis.
The Platinum TPR program was established in 2018 to recognize breeders who participate in the Associationís Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPRô) program that was implemented in 2001 to create a more accurate database and increase the value of Hereford genetics. The Platinum TPR Breeder is the highest level of achievement when it comes to complete calf crop reporting. Breeders must meet all of the requirements of Gold TPR Breeder status plus genotype 85% of their calves with a weaning weight submitted.
The Platinum TPR Breeder awards are designated two times a year and are awarded each calving season. The selection of Platinum TPR breeders takes place during the process of loading each new run of expected progeny differences in January (spring) and July (fall).
The criteria for Platinum TPR breeders is evaluated two years prior to the award year.
