Proven Sire Alliance bulls deliver profit and predictability from Pasture to Plate™ Long lasting, productive and profitable daughters

High performing steers backed by documented efficiency genetics

Carcasses that deliver quality and cutability to earn grid premiums

In the Pasture

In the Feedlot

On the Rail

Beyond performance, carcass value and efficiency, daughters of Sire Alliance bulls are monitored for maternal function and profitability.

The Sire Alliance is the longest running program of it’s kind with progeny individually measured for feed intake since 1998.

Today, the Sire Alliance and Circle A Ranch are the largest contributors to the American Angus Association carcass data base.

The Sire Alliance Maternal Index incorporates daughter productivity and fertility data including Heifer Pregnancy and Stayability.

While high feed cost in recent years has made feed efficiency a key trait of interest, no one can match the Sire Alliance’s foresight and decade and a half of intake measurements.

The typical Sire Alliance graduate has 30 steer progeny evaluated for carcass merit which by itself generates higher reliability and accuracy levels than 90% of the bulls that qualify for the Main Sire Summary listing.

The Angus Sire Alliance Program was initiated by Circle A Angus Ranch in 1996 to objectively measure commercial performance and real world value from birth-to-harvest. The program pioneered the use of selection indexes in the beef industry and remains the most comprehensive source of feedlot profit, efficiency and maternal performance. ABS has been a marketing partner with Circle A since the first bulls graduated in 1998 and the Sire Alliance program has been an exclusive ABS progeny testing program since 2008. The data derived on ABS sires not only provides you, our customers, added accuracy and reliability, but also unique and valuable insight into feed efficiency and commercial profitability that is not available anywhere else today. Beyond the proven Sire Alliance graduates offered in this directory, we are also utilizing Sire Alliance data to develop and select the next generation of ABS sires.

4 Real World Data™ for real world profit 4 Complete performance data from birth to harvest including: • Calving Ease • Pre-weaning performance • Feedlot gain and intake • Carcass yield and quality

Sound Reproduction Management Pays Big Dividends UF-NFREC CASE STUDY Beef producers need cows to become pregnant, deliver a healthy calf and wean the next generation of productive animals as the foundation of any successful operation. The bottom line: reproduction pays. According to data from research conducted at the University of Florida (UF) by Cliff Lamb, Professor of animal science and Associate Director of the North Florida Research and Education Center, pregnancy has four times greater economic impact for a producer than any other production trait. And it’s not just the obvious impact of “if ”, but “when” a cow gets pregnant that has a large influence on productivity and profitability. Timing and efficiency of pregnancies are important. Females who calve earlier in the breeding season tend to stay longer in the herd and are better positioned for a lifetime of added profitability. Early calving is the first step in a lifetime of added productivity for young cows. VALUABLE MANAGEMENT TOOLS

While most producers recognize estrus synchronization and artificial insemination (AI) as powerful genetic improvement tools, the benefits they deliver from a reproductive

management standpoint are even bigger. In fact, improved reproduction is the number one reason to plan for synchronization and AI. Together they lay the groundwork for long term benefits by getting more cows pregnant and getting them pregnant earlier in the breeding season. Synchronization and AI allow every female the opportunity to become pregnant on day one of the breeding season resulting in more and earlier pregnancies compared to natural service alone. When mated to high accuracy calving ease sires, heifers get an early and problem free start to their productive life. Research data demonstrates that early start is a critical factor towards establishing long term success.

Bull Purchase Price

As an example, a $6,000 bull that breeds 20 cows for three years results in a natural service cost per pregnancy of more than $130 . With a 60 percent pregnancy rate, those same pregnancies can be generated through synchronization and AI for nearly half the cost or about $70 each.

Mean calving daya

Per herd increase in valuec,$1,000

Year in and year out, AI and synchronization are cost competitive to natural service. In today’s market conditions, these tools have an even more decided advantage. While bull prices are at unprecedented levels, the costs of semen and synchronization have not increased appreciably in decades.

Bull Prices are at Unprecedented Levels Natural Service Cost per Pregnancy

Because pounds still pay, those additional and earlier calves also generate more calf weight and income due to synchronization alone, regardless of the genetic merit for growth of AI sires chosen. With added pounds worth more than $2.00 and each additional calf representing $1,000 to $1,500 in income, improved reproductive performance is worth more than ever before.

REPRODUCTION IS THE FOUNDATION

Don’t forget to factor in the additional weight generated by more and earlier pregnancies. Based off research data at UF, the impact of fixed-time AI (FTAI) included a 6 percent increase in weaning rate and 38 pounds more weaning weight for FTAI calves. When you consider increased returns through added weight and value, along with decreased pregnancy costs, the additional for females exposed to synchronization and FTAI can be as high as $140 per cow compared to cows in the same herd exposed to natural service alone. This added value to each female stands

alone from any additional value of improved genetics from using a proven AI sire. For producers who still remain skeptical, tools such as the AI Cowculator and Iowa State Estrus Synchronization Planner can help manage and estimate cost differences between systems. FULL SERVICE CONVENIENCE

When considering synchronization and AI, management factors such as facilities, time and labor need to be taken into account. However, these limitations are easily overcome with utilization of mobile breeding barns and ABS representatives offering full-service, turn key breeding programs.. ABS Global representatives span the U.S. with varying geographies, customers and cattle, but with a consistent commitment to provide full-service genetic solutions. ABS’ professional, full-service representatives go beyond just selling semen, providing their customers with the expert knowledge,

training and resources needed to implement a successful reproductive management program. • Facilities – with use of portable AI breeding barns, ABS can come to you and keep cattle in their natural settings limiting stress and handling. • Time – Minimize your time with appointment breeding. This not only maximizes convenience, but also tightens calving season. • Labor – While any synchronization and AI program will require labor and assistance, the scope is customizable for each producer’s needs. Utilize ABS’ expert knowledge to select the best system and approach for your herd.

improvement. It would be hard for a producer to capture one without the other. Utilizing proven genetics decreases risk and allows you to reach your herd’s goals quicker. Whether those goals are to reduce calving difficulties, enhance performance and carcass merit or to build a problem free maternally oriented cowherd the right proven AI sire can get you there faster. The studies conducted at UF demonstrate the economic importance of cost factors, but additional genetic components also increase the herd’s value. The ability to breed heifers to proven calving ease sires decreases risks of dystocia, resulting in fewer losses. Additionally, proven curve-bender sires decrease calving difficulties while offering better weight gains and more improved profitability at weaning time. Sale results from the Missouri ShowMe-Select Replacement Heifer Program show and average premium of $407 per head for heifers sold bred to high-accuracy AI sires compared to heifers bred natural service by low-accuracy sires. These values increase for seedstock producers, but access to the superior genetics is a benefit for both commercial and purebred operations. Bottom line: reproduction is important and there has never been a better time to use synchronization and AI. Synchronization and AI offer more chances for each female to become pregnant earlier in the breeding season and stay in the herd longer with more productivity. ABS offers the most comprehensive and convenient genetic service toolbox in the industry combining reliable synchronization protocols with highaccuracy genetics and expert support at less cost than natural service. ABS’ Pasture to Plate program is straight forward yet customizable to your operation and specific needs.

While improved reproductive efficiency is a sound reason to utilize synchronization and AI, the added benefit of proven genetics is also powerful. Reproductive management and synchronization is a great delivery system for genetic
