2012 Fall Sire Evaluation Report

Posted: Thursday, Oct 4th, 2012




Styles Angus Inc., Brentford, South Dakota, owns eight bulls listed in the 2012 Fall Sire Evaluation Report published by the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo. Issued in both the spring and fall, the new report features the latest performance information available on 6,067 sires, and is currently accessible at www.angussiresearch.com.

"This report provides both Angus breeders and commercial cattle producers using Angus genetics with accurate, predictable selection tools for improving their herd," says Sally Northcutt, genetic research director. Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) are generated from the performance database of the American Angus Association, which includes information submitted by nearly 9,000 Angus breeders this past year through the Association’s Beef Improvement Records (BIR) program.

The Fall 2012 evaluation includes a full suite of EPDs for production, maternal, and carcass traits. Available decision-making tools also include $Values, the bio-economic indexes designed to assist commercial producers in simplifying the genetic selection process.



The semi-annual analysis for the Sire Evaluation Report utilizes over 21 million measures used to generate nearly 62 million EPDs for the Angus breed.
