The Tradition

Some folks just don’t get it They think owing cattle makes no sense It takes too much time, too much equipment not to mention the expense. But the fondest memories of my life -they might think sound funny were made possible by Mom and Dad, ‘caust they spent the time and spent the money. You see, the most important lessons helping values grow so strong, come from loving cattle and passing that tradition on.

CUTTING EDGE BULL SALE EPD’s - An Effective Tool To Assist Your Bull Buying Decisions To use EPDs effectively you must understand how they work. Imagine you are interested in purchasing a couple of bulls for your herd. You are looking at the EPDs in a sale catalogue. Bull A has a weaning weight EPD of +10 and Bull B has a WW of +60. What does that mean? How can you use the EPDs to choose between the two bulls?

example, bulls with high growth EPDs may sire calves with a higher birth weight as well. And there may be other impacts on your operation to consider.

If these animals were randomly mated with 10 similar cows, we would expect the group average weaning weight of Bull A’s offspring to be 50 lbs lighter than that of Bull B’s (60-10=50).

If all calves were sold as feeders, the milk EPD would generally not rate much attention. Yearling weight will be important if you want to ensure finished steers in the appropriate weight range.

It would be easier if we could assume that the highest EPDs are the best. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple. Like most decisions, using EPDs for sire selection involves tradeoffs. For

Examples: When breeding heifers it is desirable to produce calves with lower birth weights, so a breeder may want to pay special attention to birth weight EPDs of prospective bulls.

BW = Birth Weight – pounds of birth weight (the lower the number, the lighter the calves)

WW = Weaning Weight – pounds of weaning weight (the higher the number, the more pounds will be weaned) YW = Yearling Weight – pounds of yearling weight (the higher the number the more pounds as a yearling) Milk = Maternal Milk – pounds of calf weaned by a bull’s daughters. A management number with reflection of the environment and feed resources. TM = TM Maternal – The total maternal EPD is a measure of both growth and milking ability and is an indication of the size of calf a bull’s daughter will wean. The maternal milk EPD is combined with half of the weaning growth EPD to produce the total maternal EPD. This is a prediction of the total genetic influence that a sire will have on his daughter’s progeny.

This does not making buying a bull any easier – it should only give you more confidence in realizing what the animal can contribute. EPD’s are a pedigree estimate that can help you navigate management and environmental conditions. Keep in mind that it is still a 50/50 contribution between the bull and the female.
