ABS Celebrates 70 Years of Leadership, Innovation and Commitment 2011 marked ABS’ 70th Anniversary as a leader in bovine genetics. From the beginning, ABS founder J. Rockefeller Prentice set a course based on superior genetics and research based technology. We’ve seen the beef industry change significantly over those 70 years with genetics playing an important roll. While inventory numbers for the US beef cow herd are at levels not seen since 1959, overall beef production, due in part to improved genetics has nearly doubled during that same time period. Today, we are at a time of tremendous opportunity with record high prices across the board for feeder calves, steers and breeding stock. At the same time, we are in an era of record high input costs for feed, fuel and land. Genetics will continue to be an increasingly vital component to maximize efficiency and enhance production and profitability for the industry. ABS is committed to the beef industry and our collaborative role in it. We are dedicated to offering the best science based genetic products and services in the industry and proud that ABS bulls have lead the way for both our purebred and commercial customers over these many years. The list to the left reflects ABS historic and continuing influence on the top 25 Angus Sires of all-time. We are humbled and thankful for your confidence and support and are proud that four of these all-time top 25 bulls are still available through ABS today. We’d also like to congratulate and thank our bull owner partners for producing these breed leading sires. We appreciate the opportunity to work with them in developing, proving and ultimately making these multi-trait high accuracy sires available to cattle producers around the globe.

✔ Calves are wide based, square and correct with added thickness - Ranks in the top 10 for both Muscle (+1.2) and Capacity (+2.2) on the latest GTS Evaluation with 201 progeny evaluated

IN FOCUS continues to be the most influential current sire in the industry. Ranking #1 for registrations in 2008 through 2010 and a very close second in 2011, IN FOCUS is closing in on NEW DESIGN 878 and EXT who are the only two bulls that rank above him all time. Very few bulls can stand the long term test of time from both a data and customer satisfaction standpoint. IN FOCUS has done it on both fronts maintaining a high accuracy birth to yearling spread with nearly 40,000 progeny on record. He sires moderate framed calves with added muscle and a pleasing, easy fleshing phenotype. His daughters are now making their mark with excellent docility and production which has moved IN FOCUS into the top 25 bulls in the breed for $W. Unfortunately, age is catching up with his previously unmatched semen production ability. Look for his son, SPECIAL FOCUS to fill in seemlessly as a reliable and economical calving ease choice.

His popularity continues to increase each year and he is now making his mark from both a maternal and efficiency standpoint while seeing increased usage within the purebred sector.

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 41 ABS Angus bulls with $W values of $35.00 or higher with 17 exceeding $40.00 for both $W and $B

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. 11 sires in our Spring 2012 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 14 years of individual intake data and the industry’s only feed efficiency index and EPDs, bulls like ALLIANCE I87, PROTEGE, RITO REVENUE, POWER DESIGN, FUTURE FOCUS, FORESIGHT, NEW DESIGN 878 and LEAD ON offer outstanding maternal traits with documented feed efficiency.

8. Soundness & udder quality are important quantifiable traits

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.

ABS exclusive GTS (Genetic Type Summary) program provides the only objective, data driven type trait evaluation in the industry. 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.

6. Disposition is a valuable maternal trait

9. Cross breeding is a powerful maternal tool

ABS has published Docility EPDs in our sire directory since 2008 and was the 1st stud to do so. Besides the breed’s long time #1 sire for Docility, ABS offers 33 sires that rank in the top 25% for DOC.

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.

5. Direct and maternal calving ease aren’t luxuries

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.

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 A.I. add pounds and consistency Today’s timed A.I. 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 fifteen 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. Documentation adds value Cattle with proven genetics, known health protocols and documented age and source typically bring more than their nondocumented counterparts. The USDA ABS Age & Aource Verification Program was approved by USDA in 2006 and continues to grow at a rapid rate. ABS customers have used the program to enhance market access and prices on more than 600,000 cattle since the program’s inception.

9. 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.

The graph to the left shows the intake and gain data for the ABS bulls that have been evaluated through the Angus Sire Alliance for feed efficiency. This chart includes only the data on ABS bulls and represents just a portion of the entire database. Each dot characterizes one bull’s combined genetic value for gain and intake. The Red line represents an index value of +$0.00 with bulls above and to the right of the line having positive feed efficiency indexes with a more profitable combination of enhanced gain and lower intake genetics. Increased distance from the line indicates larger profit differentials.

Average Breeding System Cost Including Natural Service Bred Heifers

Enhanced Profitability: Due to the benefits of A.I. and synchronization Heavier Calves: More calves born earlier in the season with a tighter calving interval equals additional $/lb. Better Calves: AI sired calves take advantage of leading genetics and continue to sell for higher premiums across the country More Calves: Eliminate death loss risk with proven calving ease sires while also increasing breed back and more chances due to increased heat cycles in a defined period to become pregnant Increased Uniformity: With less genetic and age variation from Proven A.I. sires Increased Flexibility: Use specific sires that will improve certain traits or allow for a systematic planned crossbreeding program Permanent & Additive Results: Due to the genetics that become part of your cowherd Proven Genetics: For calving ease, growth, maternal ability and carcass traits Profit: From increased reproductive efficiencies and performance

4 50-60% Pregnant Day One With Timed a.i.

Time Breeding vs. Heat Detection

• With timed A.I., every animal gets a chance to become pregnant day one of the breeding season

100 Cows Bred Timed A.I. x 55% Conception = 55 A.I. Calves 100 Cows x 85% Heat Detected x 65% Conception = 55 A.I. Calves

• 75-85% of your calves born in the first 25 days (timed A.I. plus a heat cycle) • Comparable or better results than heat detection from a total A.I. pregnancy standpoint

4 Tighter Calving Interval • More calves born early means more money – every day earlier a calf is born in the season is additional $/lb.

4 Less Labor

ABS Makes It Happen

• No or less heat detection – use of mass insemination in A.I. programs is beneficial to increase submission (A.I. service) rate

4 Turn Key Services

4 Synchronization Options

4 Custom A.I.

• Reduced overall cattle handling

4 Breeding Barns

• Tighter calving season – synchronized cows will calve in about 20 days

4 Proven Genetics

• Cows and heifers that calve earlier will breed back earlier increasing the chance they stay in the herd

• Efficient

use of labor resources during breeding and calving

4 Less Stress • Schedule your labor

• Less wear and tear on people and facilities Bull Prices are at Unprecedented Levels Natural Service Cost per Calf Bull Purchase Price $3,000
