“When I AI on that day in July, I’m accomplishing more than I am on any one given day throughout the rest of the entire year. When the cows leave that barn, six out of every 10 of them are pregnant and I know that next year, they will give birth to some of the industry’s best calves.” Joel Koch, Koch & Sons Farms Inc., SD


A New Era of Opportunity With strong consumer demand, tight supplies and record prices, the beef industry is entering a new era of growth and unprecedented opportunity. Position your herd to make the most of these exciting times with AI and ABS genetics. The advantages of synchronization and AI in today’s market are unmatched for herd management and profit. In addition to the added genetic value, research shows returns that range from $80 to $120 for every cow exposed to estrous synchronization and fixed-time AI when compared to females exposed to natural service alone.* ABS’ long-term emphasis on commercially proven, pasture to plate performance and profitability will ensure that your herd is positioned for success. These are unprecedented times in the cattle business, set your herd up for the immediate opportunity and added lifetime productivity with profit-proven genetics. For long-term AI users, today’s genetics are more proven, relevant and cost competitive than ever before. If you’ve never used AI, there has never been a better time to start.

“We’ve tried other programs in the past, but when you find what works you stick to it.With AI, I basically bred out all the difficulties. I wanted uniformity, but I’ve improved udder quality and structure in the herd. I also have a tighter calving season, and with AI to calving ease sires, I can calve without having to watch; and less labor is always great.” Mark Fulton, Fulton Ranch, SD

ABS and AI can improve your profit and efficiency in 2015: 1. PROVEN CALVING EASE 2. LONG TERM MATERNAL RETURN ON INVESTMENT 3. ADDED PERFORMANCE 4. IMPROVED EFFICIENCY 5. LESS COST THAN NATURAL SERVICE 6. FULL SERVICE CONVENIENCE

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.

UP RIVER stood out as a man amongst boys as the top seller in the Fall 2012 Thomas Angus Ranch Bull sale. He posted a dominant performance record with phenomenal phenotype. His progeny have held his breed leading weaning prediction and have already moved him from over +3 for Birth Weight EPD to a modest +1.7 with a +8 CED. While there was little doubt about his ability to transmit performance, his very reasonable birth weights and relative calving ease are more unique for a bull with his power.

✔ Outstanding feet and legs, breed leading teat and udder quality, unbeatable longevity ✔ With more than 18,000 registered daughters on record, EXT is one of the most highly proven sires of all time

Because EXT II is an identical genetic copy, you can expect the same maternally oriented phenotype and performance from EXT II as you have experienced with his highly proven founder EXT. From an EPD perspective, EXT II started with parent average values and will not reflect his true genetic levels or accuracy until more progeny data is available.

IT STARTS W ITH THE CO W The ABS definition of a productive & profitable cow and our criteria for the sires it takes to produce them. 1. SHE’S MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY PICTURE Objective real world results and producer profitability are what matters.

2. DOCUMENTED MATERNAL PERFORMANCE IS A MUST At ABS, we think $W is vitally important, and it has been a key part of our selection criteria for years. A current main list sire sort shows over 70% of ABS active Angus lineup have $W indexes of +50 or over; 25% are over +60.

3. DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS REQUIRE DIFFERENT COWS Maximum output isn’t always better—inputs count. ABS strives to provide bulls with strong maternal traits, but a range of $EN levels to fit varying environments. 21 sires in our Spring 2014 Sire Directory rank in the top 35% of the breed for $EN.

4. SHE WON’T EAT YOU OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME ABS is committed to gathering progeny feed efficiency data through our exclusive Angus Sire Alliance program. With more than 17 years of individual intake data and the industry’s only feed efficiency index and EPDs, bulls like BRUISER, ABSOLUTE, FINAL PRODUCT, SPECIAL FOCUS, FRONTMAN, COUNSELOR, COMPLEMENT, MONUMENT, HIGHT NOON and BRILLIANCE offer outstanding maternal traits with documented feed efficiency.

5. DIRECT AND MATERNAL CALVING EASE AREN’T LUXURIES We don’t like our cows so much that we want to spend the entire calving season with them. You don’t have to trade calving ease to get maternal value.

8. SOUNDNESS & UDDER QUALITY ARE IMPORTANT QUANTIFIABLE TRAITS ABS has been a leader in functional type trait measurement starting with our exclusive GTS (Genetic Type Summary) program in the 1980s. We love a great daughter or dam photo, but objectively measuring a bull’s progeny tells the whole story. Look to ABS for bulls that will improve capacity, structural soundness and teat and udder quality.

9. CROSS BREEDING IS A POWERFUL MATERNAL TOOL 6. DISPOSITION IS A VALUABLE MATERNAL TRAIT ABS has published Docility EPDs in our sire directory since 2008 and was the 1st stud to do so. The spring 2015 directory lists 38 bulls that are +20 or higher for Docility EPD.

7. FERTILITY MAY BE LOWLY HERITABLE, BUT IT IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT We have also published Heifer Pregnancy EPDs on our bulls since their inception and are actively gathering data on both heifer pregnancy and stayability through the Angus Sire Alliance to bring you more fertile, longer lasting females. Five of the top 11 active sires in the breed for Heifer Pregnancy EPD are ABS bulls.

The benefits of heterosis are especially valuable on the maternal side of the equation for important but lowly heritable traits like fertility and longevity. Numerous studies show a significant lifetime productivity benefit of up to 25% for cross bred cows. ABS is committed to providing the right bulls and the right breeds for optimally structured cross breeding programs.

10. HER GENETIC ABILITY MUST EXTEND AND EXCEL BEYOND THE RANCH Her first job is to produce a calf that keeps her owner in business for the long haul. However, her progeny also must ultimately perform in the feedlot and meet consumer demands for quality and consistency. That’s why we ask that our maternal bulls also excel for performance, carcass merit and $Beef Value. Adding value for the rancher and the industry is what we mean by Pasture to Plate™.

...and yes, she does need to look good.

... A ND ADDS VALUE THROUGHOUT THE BEEF CHAIN 1. REAL WORLD DATA AND OBJECTIVE RESULTS Objective results and producer profitability are what matters throughout the beef chain.

2. SYNCHRONIZATION AND AI ADD POUNDS AND CONSISTENCY Today’s timed AI programs are reliable and can be done on a turn key basis. They allow every cow a chance to conceive on day one of the breeding season resulting in older, heavier calves of like genetics at weaning time. Your ABS Representative can provide expert full service programs to meet your needs.

3. PERFORMANCE PAYS THE BILLS Whether you sell at weaning, background or retain ownership, pounds remain the key economic driver in this industry and growth at the right time is critical to profitability.

4. EFFICIENCY ENHANCES PROFIT Through the Angus Sire Alliance, ABS has been gathering actual progeny intake and efficiency data on our bulls since 1997. Our feed efficiency index is an industry exclusive designed to give you the best description of how our sires’ combination of growth and intake genetics will impact your bottom line.

5. ACTUAL HARVEST DATA TELLS THE STORY More so than indicator traits or DNA markers, actual harvest data best describes the ultimate value of ABS sired progeny to the beef industry. ABS is the #1 user of the American Simmental Association’s carcass merit program and our exclusive Angus Sire Alliance testing program has generated more sire identified carcass data than any other program in the industry over the last 17 years.

6. BOTH QUALITY AND YIELD ARE IMPORTANT While different grids and programs offer varying premiums, cattle that marble and yield provide the most market opportunity and flexibility. ABS advocates the value of Real World proven bulls and the breed complementarity that is available through cross breeding to hit the quality and yield targets on a consistent basis.

7. TENDERNESS ENHANCES QUALITY To further enhance quality, ABS has been shear force testing progeny of our sires through the Angus Sire Alliance since 2005. Bulls with the “Proven Tender” logo have been bench marked to sire calves that fall in the “guaranteed tender” range.

8. LET PREMIUM BUYERS KNOW ABOUT YOUR PREMIUM CATTLE Little is gained if your premium cattle aren’t exposed to premium buyers. ABS Marketing Specialists can assist in exposing your feeder cattle to 120+ quality oriented feedlots.
