Panel Discussed

Benefits of IGS Genetic Evaluation by Katie Giess, Western Livestock Reporter During the 2021 National Cattlemen Beef Association convention (NCBA) hosted in Nashville, Tennessee, August 10-12, beef industry professionals gathered for a panel discussion covering the topic of – “Why IGS?” International Genetic Solutions (IGS) is the largest multi-breed genetic evaluation tool in beef cattle in the world to date, made up of 20 breeds and partner organizations and over 20 million cattle records. You might be asking, “what is the product of this collaboration?” The answer is directly comparable across breeds to expected progeny differences (EPD). The mindset behind this type of genetic evaluation compared to a single breed elevation is the more steam (data) added, the more powerful the engine (IGS) can run. Today’s American cattlemen either believe in a purebred approach or harnessing the power of crossbreeding. Is there such a thing as a right or wrong train to be on? Depending on the goals of one’s operation, they can hop on whichever “train” best suits them. The panel discussion, led by Chip Kemp of IGS, tapped into the knowledge of three renowned professionals in the beef industry: Dr. Bob Weaber, of Kansas State University (KSU) and the Beef Improvement Federation (BIF); Tom Brink, chief executive officer of the Red Angus Association of America (RAAA); and Marty Ropp, founder and executive officer of Allied Genetic Resources (AGR).

“What we need to think about when we think about IGS is how much it {the genetic evaluation} benefits the cattle industry as a whole, as well as the participating breeds,” Brink stated. The key difference between a multi-breed genetic evaluation and those more traditional singular breed genetic evaluations, is that the multi-breed approach allows massive amounts of hybrid and crossbred data to be analyzed and connected alongside purebred animals. So long as there are shared sire groups between breed populations, a multi-breed genetic evaluation is possible. Ten years ago, a multi-breed genetic evaluation was perceived as ‘nonsense’ and held no value for the average cattleman. Ropp, who also has previous breed association experience with the American Simmental Association and has carried that knowledge over to the commercial and seedstock sector, recalled the transition into developing the multi-breed evaluation. “Twenty-three years ago, it was still ‘castles and motes,’ we protected our purebred breed, type of mindset,” Ropp said. “Soon, the genetic value wasn’t there, and members were lost. As we began to work our way back through a genetic evaluation, I was fortunate to be there at a time when the first multi-breed calving ease EPD and carcass EPD was developed. It was then, we knew long term this was going to be a multi-breed business.” Dr. Weaber also weighed in on the purpose of the multi-breed evaluation. It gives us a better opportunity to evaluate genetic differences between individuals of different breed compositions, and having a genetic evaluation that’s designed from the beginning with that in mind really adds power to not only the EPD calculation, but benefits the commercial industry,” Dr. Weaber said.

Each professional holds a key role in the beef chain, bringing a unique perspective to the conversation in addressing some of the factors of this multi-breed genetic evaluation and how the initiatives ultimately ties back to the industry’s commercial cattlemen.

Genetic Data Benefits Everyone… Panelist moderator, Kemp, discussed with the panelists what makes IGS unique and where genomics comes into the play. “The Bolt software uses a genetic evaluation model that leverages the data more completely,” Dr. Weaber explained. “By one, doing a better job modeling the relationships between individual animals and their grandparents, and two, with the software using the actual SNP marker effects in the data that are quantitatively aligned with individual traits.” With the use of genetic technology rapidly growing in the industry, genomic panels that provide SNP effects offer increasing flexibility for both commercial and seedstock producers. However, the benefit of these genomic chips lose value over time without the collection of actual data and phenotypes. Kemp then directed the conversation towards data collection among seedstock cattlemen. “You’re either a professional seedstock producer and you collect all the data, or you’re not a professional seedstock producer because you don’t collect the data,” Ropp stated firmly. The average cattlemen might argue the other side, that they don’t need to collect all of the data because that may give their competitors a leg up. Brink addressed this notion as a miscommunication between the evaluation and the individual breeder. “There is a misconception to the individual breeder – keep in mind when you collect data on multiple traits, it benefits your individual herd the most,” Brink said. “That data goes right into the evaluation and yes, there is a ripple effect, it does help the whole evaluation too, but if you concentrate as an individual breeder when you submit your data, you concentrate the benefit of that information on your own cattle.”

of the most intelligent scientists in the industry to keep progressing the evaluation forward. “We have a lot of small to medium size breeds within IGS and a few larger breeds, so by collaborating, we can afford the best scientists and really the best science available for genetic evaluation, that in itself is very powerful for the individual breeder,” Brink shared. In tying the evaluation back to an industry viewpoint, Ropp reflected on the direct and indirect effects it has on today’s commercial cattlemen. “The members of the seedstock producers we work with [of AGR], are absolutely, committed to using a genetic evaluation to make a population of cattle that is better each and every generation for their commercial customers, and then also let those customers use some of the tools that are available downstream to make those decisions if they choose to,” Ropp explained. Rounding out the panel discussion, no one shied away from the unique challenges associated with the rapid acceptance and growth of the collaborative IGS model. “We’re out there on the edge of science,” Brink said with confidence. “We have the best scientific minds, so together, we’re always learning, improving, and pushing forward. It is work and it won’t be without some bumps along the way, but we understand that. That’s the product of being on the cutting edge.” g

The Power of Collaboration… Dr. Weaber also addressed the need for evaluation in the long-term, and said collaboration is going to be a big piece of this. “The structure of IGS really lends itself to leverage collective data – shared info, genomics, phenotypes, as new participants come in, they immediately get to leverage those genetic relationships, they also have the opportunity to build out genetic programs to help bolster that improvement,” Dr. Weaber explained.

Rocky Meadow Farms

By Curtis Doubet

Located in Rocky Mount, Virginia, Rocky Meadow Farm is reaping the benefits of Salers cattle. Owner and operator Robin Powell tells the story of how it all began when she said, “My brother-in-law Roland Poindexter and I were headed to a local auction when we came across our first Salers cattle and I knew right away that these cattle were good and that I had to have some!” As a century farm that began in 1886, the farm had been in business for some time prior to using Salers cattle but something was missing. “We saw and studied those cattle at the Generations of Genetics sale that first year and I told Roland that we were definitely getting some Salers bulls the following year,” Powell said. She held true to her word at that following year Salers bulls made their way to Rocky Meadow Farm for the first time. Powell did not stop at that either and the following year she made a purchase on some heifers. “Their phenotype is what first drew me in because they were so much beefier and higher performing than the bulls we were using previously and as a result we are able to sell calves up to a month earlier at the same or heavier weights than what we were able to do before,” Powell said.

The docility in our Salers cattle is tremendous, our cows and bull will eat alfalfa cubes straight out of my hand. Today Rocky Meadow Farm runs Salers bulls on both their purebred Salers cows and their commercial cows and they love the calving ease benefits the breed offers. “These cattle have very few problems with calving, we barely ever assist any cows or heifers and feel that is a major strength in these cattle,” Powell said. The farm currently calves in both the spring and the fall and has begun to breed up a large portion of their commercial cows in an attempt to further utilize their Salers genetics. “The docility in our Salers cattle is tremendous, our cows and bulls will eat alfalfa cubes straight out of my hand,” said Powell.

good Salers cattle have to offer. “I have enthusiastically embraced the breed and I tell everybody about them because Salers education is very important to me. Just the other day I was telling some gentlemen at the convenience store out our cattle and our breed and I did not even know who all those gentlemen were or if they even have cattle but if they’ll listen, I’ll tell them about Salers cattle,” said Powell. g

Working together with Kent Warner, Rocky Meadow Farm has now been putting extra selection pressure on power and show appeal. “We have been selling bulls through a combination of live and private treaty sales both, seeing a lot of success in that regard, and now with the help of Matt Craig we have started showing quite a bit in attempt to further promote not only our cattle but the breed as a whole,” Powell said. “Roland does a lot of the halter breaking and then Matt and his family are a huge help both in preparation for a show and at the show itself, we could not do it without them,” Powell said. To continue to see the breed flourish and grow, Powell is big on educating other cattle breeders and the general public about the all the AMERICAN SALERS
