    Bull DeVelOPMeNT aND CONTeMPORaRY gROuPiNgWeaning weights (for 205 day adjusted weights) were taken in May, approximately 30 days prior to weaning. Bulls were weaned on pasture and

    hay. The test period was from early June to early October. For that period, bulls continued to graze in 15-30 acre pastures, had access to grass hay and free-choice bull developer composed primarily of commodity ingredients, corn and an intake-limiting ingredient from Purina.

    The yearling weights are lighter than in years past, but we are confident the bulls are healthier, sounder, and better prepared for the breeding season without need for extra supplementation.

    The bulls were divided into several contemporary groups for ratioing purposes at weaning and yearling. They were grouped by breed, and pre-weaning location and management. ET bulls were put into separate contemporary groups. Our goal is to minimize confusion, while practicing sound genetic evaluation principals. Please give Paul a call if you have questions.

    We want to make it easy for you to attend our sale, so we are offering several options that will meet your individual needs:

  • ANGUS $VALUESThe use of multi-trait selection indexes as tools for commercial cow-calf operators and seedstock breeders is rapidly evolving in the beef industry. Selection indexes are a tool to select for several traits at once. An index approach takes into account genetic and economic values to select for economic merit. A multi-trait index approach can be contrasted to single-trait selection or independent culling levels. An index is challenging to develop, but the end result is easy to use, adding simplicity and convenience of a multi-trait approach.

    The Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) currently available through the American Angus Association, along with numerous individual performance measures, can become overwhelming. Weaned Calf Value ($W), Feedlot Value ($F), Grid Value ($G) and Beef Value ($B) are bioeconomic values, expressed in dollars per head, to assist commercial beef producers by adding simplicity to genetic selection decisions. Also, a Cow Energy Value ($EN) is available for fine-tuning the cow herd.$Values encompass the revenue generated from genetically derived outputs and associated costs (expenses) from required inputs. $Values only have meaning when used in comparing the relative merit or ranking of two individuals. Each sire listed in this report is comparable to every other sire. The $Values are sensitive to the assumptions for the industry-relevant components used in calculati
