BEEF SIRE DIRECTORY


FOREWORD The year 2015-16 was a year of records for all in the beef industry. Record prices in the saleyards and at bull sales. ABS Australia retained the No. 1 industry position for beef semen sales. ABS Australia achieved a record annual sale result. It is a great time for all and great rewards for many producers that have toiled so hard for so long. The ABS Seminar and Client Days were again very well received. The main event in Tasmania was a huge success, great viewing of progeny groups, 120 at the dinner and lots of fellowship. Dr. Cliff Lamb’s talk and update on FTAI was thoroughly enlightening, please take the time to read Cliff’s article on pages 53-56. We encourage all breeders to consider attending the 2017 autumn event. Bill Cornell Beef Product Manager

Again Bill travelled to New Zealand in May to view sires, progeny and attend bull sales. In July Bill travelled to the USA for the annual inspection of sires and progeny review. Kim also travelled to the USA to see ABS Sires, progeny in the field and meet ABS staff. Fletcher Kelly has just joined the beef team. Fletch’s manner, knowledge and enthusiasm will be a great asset to all in the industry. Over the next 12 months we will be conducting more workshops on FTAI. We know syncronization is a profitable management tool for beef producers, and great gains with calving intervals and genetic growth are available. Commercial breeders please see page 29 for semen offers. We thank all supporters of the ABS Australia program. Updates and specials will be available via the ABS Australia website, beef facebook and emails. A final note, on some imported bulls inventory levels will run out, please decide early on bull selections. Please contact Kim, Fletch or myself for assistance. Bill Cornell

TOTAL LIVESTOCK GENETICS BULL VISIT POLICY TLG has been very accommodating to visitors in the past, but with the higher number of bull collections and high demands of bio-security a new visitation policy is now in place. TLG will hold an annual bull viewing day. Other visits to view bulls at TLG must be made with the bull owners. TLG requires 14 days notice and bull owners must attend with the visitors.

FLETCH KELLY Fletch attended Melbourne University and studied a Bachelor of Science followed by a Masters in Animal Science which focussed on animal genetics, livestock nutrition and animal   breeding. His passion for the industry was sparked when working part time for David Plant at Southern Cross Genetics in 2013 while still at university. Fletch started at ABS Australia in October 2015 as a sales representative and AI field technician at the Kyabram office. Over the past year Fletch’s roles included fixed time AI programs and providing genetic and breeding advice to farmers across Northern Victoria. During this period Fletch gained sound experience in both beef and dairy branches of the ABS business, with his primary passion on the beef program and FTAI. Fletch now joins the beef team as Beef Key Account Manager - Southern Region. The role will cover Victoria, SE of SA and Tasmania. A major focus will be development and the merits and profitability of fixed time programs; as well as promoting the wide range of industry leading ABS bulls which add tremendous genetic value to commercial and seedstock herds. Fletch enjoys in his spare time surfing and playing footy, and cheering on his beloved Geelong Cats.

2014 Inspection - Complement’s muscle pattern, structural soundness and overall phenotype wins him the bull of the tour award. We travelled extensively and assessed progeny in 2 states and 4 ranches. Daughters are long bodied, with plenty of volume and depth, and those in production had beautiful placed udders and excellent teat size. 18 month old bulls and mature sires showed length, depth and soundness, with good sheath, testicles and nice temperament. Inspection of his dam revealed a cow of medium to larger frame, with heaps of dimension and power, sound feet and udder.

MILLAH MURRAH KLOONeY K42 (Ai) (AMF-NHF-CAF-RDF-MAF-DDF)

Klooney K42 at 19 months

Klooney K42 was the 2nd highest selling bull at the Millah Murrah sale in September at $80,000, making him the 5th highest selling Australian Angus bull of all time. Klooney is the first calf of Prue H4, arguably the best Emperor daughter to turn up in the breed thus far. She was the most sought after donor in the Millah Murrah autumn ET program. On inspection in September and looking at the photo it is easy to see why. She is a cow that exhibits magnificent structure, huge capacity and massive volume with an outstanding Reality calf at side. Following the pedigree back, the grand dam, by Time On, brings 24J into the equation. The great grand dam by Woody W100 was the $22,000, 3rd high selling female from the record setting 2013 Millah Murrah cow sale, her son having sold as the $24,000 high priced bull at the 2012 sale. And of course, everyone recognises Theo as a master dam sire, with the much admired Megaforce high up in the pedigree. So when Theo combines with the class of this higher performance Emperor daughter it is no surprise to see the style and superior structure that Klooney displays. To observe, Klooney is a free moving bull, with good outlook and pleasant disposition. He has a beautiful soft skin and fine hair type with the high C+ muscle score that the industry desires of the Angus breed. He is kind of hard to fault. Klooney should become a go to sire for many seedstock and commercial heifer programs based on his great EBVS for CE, GL and BWT. Throw in his actual 36 kg BWT, his impeccable structure and the fact that Klooney, his dam and grand dam all carry the title of “heifer’s first calf” and the strong calving ease EBVs are reinforced. Klooney is clearly a bull with massive cow maker credentials. Initial reports show Klooney is calving well on seedstock and commercial heifers. Semen exported to South America, UK and Europe. “The industry has been crying out for a bull like Klooney for some time.”

2016 Inspection at ORIgen - Mediator captured our attention with his great style and eye appeal. He paraded well. He is longer bodied bull. He has a particularly well muscled rear with lower extra fill. Like his sire Mediator combines good phenotype with balanced EPDs.

MediATOr

MUSGRAVE MEDIATOR

(AMF-DDF-NHF-OSF)

2016 Inspection at ORIgen - Aviator was perhaps the total standout of the tour. He has tremendous volume, capacity, muscle and thickness. He stands beautifully on 4 near perfect feet. Super phenotype. One of the rare individuals that combines looks and EPDs.

Where Performance & Phenotype Come Together  Heavy muscled AVIATOR son with a great look  Double digit calving ease potential with added growth and performance

It is widely recognised that structural problems in sires have detrimental effects on conception rates, calving patterns and thus profitability. Similarly, females with inadequate structural characteristics are more prone to weaning lighter calves or conceiving later in the breeding season than their more functional counterparts. These structural problems are filtered through the supply chain resulting in reduced income for the producer, feedlot and thus reducing the overall productivity of the Australian Beef Industry.

Owned by Clunie Range.

 The Reality son with CE, Growth and Carcass  G.Dam E111 is a large framed long bodied cow with excellent udder and teat placement and faultless foot structure  Dam J81 has inherited the same outstanding udder and foot structure, and is a cow that will remain in the donor program at Clunie Range for some time to come. The maternal line traces back to Te Mania Lowan U43, the full sister to Ulong! “Legend has been an impressive individual from a calf. He was the best of a flush of seven high quality calves. He shows tremendous thickness with depth of body and outstanding topline. His muscle content is matched with a fantastic skin type and he oozes softness and doing ability. We expect the thickness and genuine muscle in this bull to impress further as he matures and we are expecting great things from him.” Breeder comments, Brett Guest

 Reserve’s overall progeny performance combination, strong cow family and mating flexibility have made him one of the ‘must use’ young bulls in the breed  Lower Birth Weight 454 son with breed leading $W and $B Indexes, high docility  Maternal brothers topped both the 2013 Vintage Sale at $330,000 and the 2012 Sale at $250,000  Moderate made bull with plenty of rib and muscle and a +29 Docility EPD  Offers great mating flexibility and can be used on most pedigrees including In Focus and Objective daughters 2014 Inspection - Reserve continues to improve with his long body, tremendous eye appeal and clean sheath. His female progeny as mated heifers and freshly weaned calves still display the length, depth and attractiveness of their sire. His dam is one rising superstar in the breed, one of the highest genomic cows. Phenotypically she is one powerful matron. Her progeny exude her power enmass. A family line that will make a big impact on the breed. Outstanding docility. 2015 Comments - At ABS bull stud, Reserve displayed brilliantly as can be seen of his recent photo above. Progeny viewed in 3 herds, the length of body and the yearling bull’s body mass and muscle were outstanding. The females showed style and balance. Reserve continues to really impress. reserve dominates the Angus Sire Alliance evaluation. The trial began in 1996 and Reserve ranks overall as Top 10% Total Profit Index, Top 2% Efficiency Index, Top 1% Feed Intake EPD, Top 2% Maternal Index. Reserve’s outstanding low feed intake and top 2% efficiency will make him an even more popular long term sire.

The trend across almost every breed today is to identify genetics with spread between the antagonistic traits of Birth and Yearling. Selected as the $55,000 record-selling bull at the 2012 Minnesota Bull Test Sale at Jackson, MN. Tour of Duty was a sensation on display at the 2013 National Western Stock Show, showcasing his exceptional length, dimension, soundness, bone and hip. Great cows seem to always find a way to influence great herds and tremendous herd sires. His 10-year-old dam, BA Lady 6807 305, is now one of the top WW EPD in the breed at +78. She posts 4 BWR 96, 4 NR 110, 1 YR 109. A maternal sister, RB Lady Standard 305-890, is already the top BW to YW spread dam in the Angus breed and she had a son that was the top-indexing bull at the 2013 Midland Bull Test. Her first seven daughters at public auction averaged $28,000 with $516,000 in revenue over three short years. When it comes to high weaning and yearling outliers without lots of birth grief, Tour of Duty hits the bullseye. 2014 Inspection - Tour of Duty is an amazing phenotypic larger framed bull. He parades with a bold strong stride, head held proudly high. He displays an amazingly docile nature. His overall structure and soundness is great. A visit to Riley Bros to see his family line and progeny really stamped Tour of Duty as the standout big bull of the tour. 2015 Inspections - Tour of Duty is the high selling semen sire, and has retained all his attributes. Progeny and sibs inspected at 5 herds. The 25 Colorado yearling heifers were outstanding in docility, structure and type. Progeny exibit growth, style and frame.

BLACK PeArL

SYDGEN BLACK PEARL 2006

(AMF-NHFU-CAF-MAF-DDF)

In Australia we have been so pleased with the performance, docility and overall phenotype and soundness of Sydgen Trust. The 2014 Inspection of Trust and his dam continued to confirm Trust’s overall genetic value and appeal. What we did not expect to find was a son that did everything Trust did and then a little bit more! Black Pearl, is that bull, he commands the same attention with his placid nature, soundness of movement and structure and overall delightful phenotype. And then Black Pearls EPDS takes all the EPD performance to another level, more carcass, more growth but with the same CE, fertility with good positive fats. Black Pearl, like his sire exhibits a placid quiet nature. 2015 - The standout yearling sale bulls at Sydenstrickers were Black Pearl and Big Medicines (a maternal brother to Black Pearl). The bull Black Pearl had grown out into a larger framed, long bodied, docile sound bull. Expect great progeny to come.

CHAROLAIS Long Distance first attracted attention as the second high-selling bull in the 2010 Lindskov-Thiel Bull Sale. Now with over 100 heifers calved to Long Distance, the data points to short gestation and true heifer calving ease. More than a heifer bull though, Long Distance progeny will distance themselves from the pack with docile temperaments, sound structure and lots of eye appeal. Birth weights on his first calf crop, out of both cows and first-calf heifers, at Domek Charolais, Hebbert Charolais & Lindskov-Thiel - 44 bull calves: 78 lbs; 44 heifer calves: 76 lbs. Australian field reports that calves are born easily and are very stylish. Semen stocks are very low.

USING THIS DIRECTORY - BULL INFORMATION ABS’ exclusive relationship with the Angus Sire Alliance and Circle A Angus Ranch ensures that our bulls have a comprehensive progeny test in a real world commercial environment and allows us to explore additional profit related traits for the beef industry. The Angus Sire Alliance has put together one of the most comprehensive progeny test programs in the industry; by using economic modeling programs and relative economic weights they have combined the various genetic components into an overall Profitability Value (or EPD).

Rock Solid denotes USA bulls who are .90 or higher for accuracy on birth weight EPD. Indicates bulls are well proven through A.I. usage and have enough calves recorded through their respective breed association to achieve a relative high level of accuracy.

Carcass Rating - Steak ratings are a subjective estimate of a bulls overall carcass merit based on his percentile ranking within his breed for carcass traits and/or ultrasound body composition. 35

USING THIS DIRECTORY - BULL INFORMATION cont. Calving Ease - Star ratings are a subjective estimate of a bull’s calving ease. In assigning stars, objective data (such as birth weight and calving ease information for heifers and cows) is used. Stars may generally be interpreted as follows:

★★ Bull who can be used on cows - few assists should be expected.

★ Bull who should only be on mature cows - expect large birth Onlineused Contact Herefords Australia Help Herefords Australia Ltd. 10 August 2016 © Copyright 2016 All Rights Reserved. Site Designed & Supported by: ABRI i4 8.7.7, Disclaimer weights.

★★★★ Bull proven for a high level of calving ease based on calving ease scores, birth weight EPD, and accuracy level.

★★★ Bull who can be used on heifers of the same breed. 36

MADISON, Wis., U.S.A. (March 22, 2016)—Many the cattle industry have evolved over the last 75 years, but one thing has remained constant—ABS® Global has been at forefront of Road, providing products and help Genus Breeding the Ltd, Alpha Building, London Nantwich, CW5 7JW Telephone: 0870services 162 2000 Fax: to 01270 616702its For more information on Genus Beef Sires, visit our website www.genusbreeding.co.uk customers PROFIT FROM GENETIC PROGRESS.

Since 1941, ABS has been the world leader in developing first-class bovine genetics and providing the best cattle reproduction expertise in the industry. Formed as the American Dairy Guernsey Associates of Northing Illinois with just three Guernsey bulls, ABS has since built a diverse breed and genetic lineup and now serves dairy and beef producers in nearly 80 countries. Over the years, ABS has brought industry-changing genetic progress to its customers—including the global sensation, 29HO12209 PICSTON SHOTTLE, who was the number one Holstein bull in the world for seven straight sire summary releases, and 29AN1640 IN FOCUS— one of the all-time top Angus bulls in the industry for calving ease, growth, maternal value, and docility. One of ABS Global’s proudest moments is the introduction of frozen semen in 1953, followed by the development of the first storage container for frozen semen using liquid nitrogen. These major milestones completely transformed the way the animal genetics industry operates—and are considered best practice even today. ABS also built intelligence behind the genetics offered to farmers by developing the Estimated Daughter Superiority measurement in 1963 and being the first-to-market with a computerized mating program, Genetic Mating Service, in 1968. Innovation continues to be a driving force at ABS. Most recently, ABS made headlines by

introducing TransitionRight™ genetics—a revolutionary index that helps customers prevent costly transition cow health issues. As ABS celebrates 75 years of serving some of the very best beef and dairy producers around the world, it is affirming its commitment to its customers by announcing a new tagline: PROFIT FROM GENETIC PROGRESS. “It is a very exciting time to be leading the ABS team.

The 30-Day Game Changer: Improving Reproductive Efficiency and Profitability of Beef Herds G. Cliff Lamb North Florida Research and Education Center, Marianna, Florida, University of Florida Introduction Beef producers need cows to become pregnant, deliver healthy calves, and wean productive calves in order to make their operations economically viable. The failure of breeding females to become pregnant directly impacts the economic viability of every beef operation, yet few producers realize how infertility impacts their individual operations. Australian cattle producers have noticed unprecedented increases in the value of calves, replacement heifers, and cull cows and bulls. Therefore, every live calf that is produced and marketed has significant value to beef operations. The positive cash flow in the beef industry provides an ideal opportunity to incorporate reproductive technologies that previously may not have been viable. To maximize profitability in beef operations, producers depend on the production of one healthy calf per cow per year. Incorporating reproductive technologies enhances the opportunity to increase the financial and biological components that contribute to profitability of beef operations.

superior AI sires. However, other benefits have become evident including the potential to alter the calving season and increase uniformity of calves. Estrus synchronization protocols, particularly those which include a progestin, may induce cyclicity in non-cyclic females. These mentioned advantages to utilize ES have enhanced its use in beef operations and is usually used in conjunction with AI. One such improvement that is underutilized by beef producers is the use of fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI). Fixed-time artificial insemination is frequently overlooked because many beef cattle producers feel like they need to know how to artificially inseminate cows. However, the technology has improved and now cattle producers can inseminate all of their cows or heifers on a single day at the same time. The development of FTAI has allowed producers to improve the genetic traits of their cattle and shorten the lengths of both the breeding season and subsequent calving season, which can lead to increased overall profitability of cow-calf production systems.

Use of estrus synchronization (ES) and artificial insemination (AI) Artificial insemination is not a new technology. The developmental research that preceded our modern techniques dates back to Russia in the late 1800s and early 1900s. For beef producers a major opportunity exists to increase the genetic potential of their herd through the use of AI. With AI, the most genetically superior sires are available to a large number of producers rather than being confined to the cows that are on a single pasture. In addition, the accuracy of predicting performance of offspring of young sires with no progeny (typical of most natural service sires) is less than that of sires with a large number of offspring (typical of “proven� AI sires). One of the primary advantages of using AI is that semen from sires with high accuracy are far superior to most natural service sires available. High accuracy of proven AI sires allow producers more confidence that the advertised performance and phenotypic characteristics of offspring will be realized, compared with offspring from low accuracy natural service sires. The risk of unexpected performance is greater when using low accuracy natural service sires. In addition, improving the accuracy of sire breeding value predictions may increase the overall rate of genetic change on beef operations and improved rate of genetic change can lead to subsequent improvements in overall profitability.

The success of FTAI programs can be affected by several factors, including postpartum anestrus, days postpartum, parity, and body condition score (BCS). Postpartum anestrus is a major contributor to infertility in cattle. The resumption of the estrous cycle earlier in the postpartum period increases the number of estrous cycles and the chances for a cow to become pregnant during the breeding season. Reducing the postpartum interval may be accomplished by managing preand postpartum nutrition, BCS, disease through an active herd health program, and suckling interaction between cow and calf. The effects of days postpartum and parity on FTAI pregnancy rates in suckled beef cows have been previously shown, with improved fertility in multiparous cows even when days postpartum amounted to more than 50. Body condition score during the peripartum period also affects fertility. It has been shown that a single unit increase in BCS, especially from poor BCS to adequate BCS, resulted in a 23 percentage point increase in the proportion of cows pregnant to a TAI. In addition, cows calving in poor BCS experience longer intervals to the first postpartum estrus compared to cows calving in moderate to good BCS.

Synchronizing the estrous cycle with the use of exogenous (administered by injection or insert/implant cdir or cuemate to the cow) hormones has been developed and incorporated into beef production systems primarily to facilitate the use of AI for more than 40 years. A primary factor limiting the use of AI is the labor required to perform AI and to detect estrus in females and ensure they are inseminated at the appropriate time. It is now possible to expect to achieve pregnancy from AI in more than 50% of the herd during the first week of the breeding season. The success of ES in increasing the proportion of pregnancies derived from AI will increase the rate of genetic improvement through mating with genetically

What should I expect from my AI program? Before discussing what you should expect from an AI program, it is important to understand a few definitions that are frequently used when talking about the success of a program, but often misinterpreted. These definitions are: 1) Synchronization rate: defined as the percentage of females detected in heat compared to the number of females synchronized. 2) Conception rate: defined as the percentage of females pregnant compared to the number of females detected in heat. 3) Pregnancy rate: defined as the percentage of females pregnant compared to the total number of females synchronized.

53


In general GnRH would be preferred over Cidirol at FTAI, since ovulation tends to uniform with GnRH than Cidirol. For example, if a producer synchronizes 100 females and detects 75 females in heat and inseminates those 75 cows, and ends up with 50 pregnancies. The synchronization rate would be 75% (75 females in heat compared to 100 total females synchronized), the conception rate would be 67% (50 females pregnant compared to 75 females inseminated), and the pregnancy rate would be 50% (50 females pregnant compared to 100 females synchronized).

Determining how successful your synchronization and AI program is will help you identify the pitfalls and correct them, you can’t administer what you don’t measure. Essentially, synchronization rate is important if you use an estrus synchronization system that requires heat detection.

For cows: Essentially the most simple of all protocols that consistently provides the best success is the 7-day COSynch + CIDR protocol (Figure 1) is the primary protocol recommended for cows. In cows the FTAI should occur at between 60 and 66 hours after CIDR removal. Producers may have had experience with administering Pregnecol (the trade name for equine chorionic gonadotropin) at the time of CIDR removal, but this may only be effective in females that are not cycling at the start of the breeding season. In addition, use of Pregnecol should be monitored, since field reports have noted an increasing in twinning rates. In general GnRH would be preferred over Cidirol at FTAI, since ovulation tends to be more uniform with GnRH than Cidirol.

If I implement an AI program what pregnancy rates should I expect?


If I implement an AI program what pregnancy rates should I expect? In most cases, using a FTAI program will yield greater pregnancy rates than heat detection systems because every female will have a chance to become pregnant. Producers should consider FTAI as an option, especially if time and labor are potential pitfalls to implementing an AI program. Fixed-time AI will help reduce the time and labor associated with the AI system and all females can be inseminated on the same day. Producers who synchronize and AI for the first time should not expect to obtain similar pregnancy rates to producers who have implemented an AI program for one or more years. Frequently, synchronization and AI is oversold and first-time users have unrealistic expectations of what they should expect for pregnancy rates. From our experience, we know that the advantages of implementing a synchronization and AI program go further than simply obtaining good pregnancy rates.

to the AI, but the impacts are far greater than simply focusing on pregnancy rates. In fact, the primary focus should be on the changes to calving distribution, economic impacts, and other positive indicators of fertility. In a long-term study at the University of Florida North Florida Research and Education Center located in Marianna, FL we introduced the utilization of multiple technologies on the subsequent value of the calf crop. This case study was conducted during the spring 2008 to spring 2013 breeding seasons, in a cow/calf operation consisting of 300 cows. Prior to the 2008 the breeding season the herd exposed to a 120 day breeding season. The goal was to reduce the breeding season to 70 days within 4 years. To do this, it was decided, in 2008, that all females in the operation would be exposed to the following criteria:

In a recent study performed at multiple locations using the same estrus synchronization system the pregnancy rates ranged from 44.4% to 65.8% (Figure 4). After evaluating each of these operations for multiple factors (such as age, body condition score, days postpartum, etc.) that may have affected pregnancy rates, the primary factor that appeared to have the largest impact on success was whether the herd had been previously exposed to estrus synchronization and AI or not. The three herds that had previously been exposed to estrus synchronization and AI for eight or more years had pregnancy rates of 56.9% to 65.8%, whereas those herds that had not previously been exposed to estrus synchronization and AI had pregnancy rates ranging from 44.4% to 50.4%. Therefore, obtaining pregnancy rates that may be deemed good or acceptable may require a long-term commitment rather than expecting excellent results from the start.

3. a cow must produce a live calf every year and calve without assistance or she was culled;

1. replacement heifer must become pregnant during the first 25 days of the breeding season; 2. every cow will be exposed to ES and TAI;

4. every cow must provide the resources for the genetic potential of the calves and each calf she produces must be genetically capable of performing; 5. every cow must maintain body condition score without requiring supplemental feeding; 6. any cow with an undesirable temperament or disposition was culled. As a result of incorporating multiple reproductive management practices, the breeding season was reduced from 120 to 70 days and almost all cows calve prior to initiation of the breeding season and are exposed to a single TAI at the initiation of the breeding season. The net result is a more compact calving season that has increased the value of calves (in current US dollars) by $169 per calf or an annual increase in calf value for the 300 head operation of $50,700 per year (Table 1).
