2010 Semen & Embryo Directory


Herefords - The Next Generation 2010 Semen and Embryo Directory

Welcome to the first issue of Herefords – The Next Generation, the Canadian Hereford Association’s new Semen and Embryo directory! This directory has been mailed to the CHA membership as well as to our subscribers, both national and international. Many subscribers are from the United States. Bundles of ten have also been mailed to world Hereford member associations to increase the visibility of this new directory. You will also see the directory at Hereford events throughout the year. The greatest advantage with this new venture is that breeders’ direct contact information is included in their ads, so interested buyers can either contact breeders directly or their respective designated agents, for the semen or embryos on sale. In most cases, therefore, 100 per cent of sales go directly into breeders’ pockets. We are very encouraged by the response to our first issue. Thank you to those who advertised in this first issue, for taking a leap of faith in Herefords-The Next

Generation. We invite readers and recipients of this directory to contact the advertisers listed if the genetics and breeding programs advertised are of interest. Our advertising breeders would be happy to discuss their programs with you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in advertising in the 2011 directory. Keep in mind that we will continue building our 2011 catalogue throughout the current year. We also welcome comments and suggestions for consideration relating to future issues of this directory. We hope you find real value within the pages of Herefords – The Next Generation. Enjoy! Sincerely, Brad Dubeau Director of Communications Canadian Hereford Association Ph. (403) 275-2662 Fx. (403) 295-1333 brad@hereford.ca

His flawless structure, muscling, thickness, length & depth of quarter combined with maternal strength and perfect feet make him a truly outstanding individual. It is rare to find a bull exhibiting 174S’ carcass traits with a pedigree full of exceptional cows that have an abundance of milk. He also has a strong set of balanced E.P.D.s. 174S has the ability to not only maintain but to improve condition while naturally breeding 70 plus females on rugged pasture each of the last two years. This attests to his excellent feed conversion & fleshing ability, influential for anyone’s bottom line. 174S exemplifies all the traits that make Herefords great and advances the ones we are all trying to improve.

The popular 2007 Calgary Bull Sale Reserve Champion. Two outstanding calf crops so far and we can’t wait for the third. His first daughters will calve this spring and are as good a set of replacements as we’ve raised. Sons have been class winners at Hardisty Field Day the past two years, and three daughters were the Reserve Champion pen of females at Hardisty in 2009. Progeny are finding their way into top purebred herds. Domestic

The sire of 7R, 311N, (a son of 254E) was a sale topper at Fenton Hereford Ranch Inc. that we were fortunate enough to use ourselves on some elite cows. The dam, Northfork 6K, is the result of a flush mating of Royal Red and Crone Herefords best cow 24Y. We used 7R on heifers and cows and have experienced exceptional calving ease with extra performance. We hold his females in high regard as they have now calved and are excellent mothers with superior udder development and milk. 7R sons have been high sellers as they are short marked, moderate framed, and packed with meat and muscle. 6K is the cow you would start a herd with.

114L’s females are incredible - femininity with thickness, volume, sound feet & legs and easy keeping. We are really pleased with not only how they look, but their calves’ heavy weights at 205 days & right through 365 days. 114L has the best overall average yearling indexes. A sample of outstanding 114L daughters is pictured on our web page. “The General” is currently in use throughout Canada, USA, Australia, and New Zealand.

Price: $60/straw 21M ranks in the top one percentile of the Hereford breed for light birth weight EPD. He produces offspring with lots of vigor at birth, good performance and daughters that we are very proud of. Over 90 of his calves in our herd averaged 77 lbs birth weight yet still indexed above average for both weaning and yearling! 21M is breeding exceptionally well - great calving ease, milk & growth and marbling - the whole package.

AGA 79H BRIT DOM ET 70N - $50/straw - ALNK 70N has really

worked exceptionally well – stamping his calves much like himself at both Verbeek Herefords and in our herd. His offspring display the same length, thickness, depth, substance, straight level top, good thick hair and correctness of their sire. Sharing the same dam as 114L, 70N possesses desirable maternal traits and is leaving attractive females and performance galore and now strong carcass merits. Progeny from 70N have been sold by both Ulrichs and Verbeeks into purebred and commercial operations. Bull calves and yearling heifers that Verbeeks have shown the last three years at Hardisty have taken top honours.

Are You Prepared For Breeding Season? It’s never too early to think ahead and prepare for the upcoming breeding season. We suggest following these simple steps to save time, avoid last minute hassle and make life a little easier for yourself and the people you work and live with. • Make sure your cow herd is healthy and in good breeding condition, proper nutrition is key. • Inspect your tank and have it filled with liquid nitrogen before you order semen. • Allow enough time for shipping. It’s best to order semen at least two weeks in advance of breeding date. • Make a check list for A.I. supplies and have these items on hand in advance of breeding. • Record your work, make sure your record keeping tools are accessible so you’ll be sure to use them.

EPDs Made Easy BREED DE VELOPMENT CO ORDINATOR

Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) are the best scientific tool available for improving genetic merit within a herd. Unfortunately, this tool is often misunderstood and misused, causing confusion and distrust. An EPD is the difference between the predicted average performance of an animal’s future progeny and the average progeny performance of another animal whose EPD is zero, assuming that bulls are mated to similar cows, or vice versa. It is important to remember that an EPD is not a prediction of individual performance. Information used in computing EPDs includes pedigree and performance of relatives, self, and progeny. An EPD does not correspond to any specific value for a particular trait. (i.e. a weaning weight EPD of 46.6 does not equal an actual weaning weight of 650 lbs for an animal’s progeny). Nor can EPDs for different breeds be compared to one another. The method used to compute EPDs takes into account environmental & management differences among contemporary groups (animals of the same age and sex raised under the same management conditions), the genetic merit of cows that a bull is bred to, an animal’s own performance and that of their relatives, and genetic trends of the entire breed. It is often thought that EPDs are calculated in the same way as 205day adjusted weights. This is not the case. To calculate EPDs on all recorded animals many more than 1 million equations must be calculated simultaneously. A bull with great EPDs does not guarantee a superior calf crop. A common producer complaint about EPDs is that they do not seem to correspond to actual data. As EPDs rely on information provided by the producer, it is critical that the correct information be submitted (e.g.

correctly identifying different contemporary groups). In addition, billions of genetically different progeny are possible from just a single mating! This means that there is a lot of variation possible. Producers should also remember that EPDs are a prediction of the average progeny performance. Therefore it is very possible to have a calf or two that don’t fit in with the rest! This is where accuracy comes in. Accuracy is a value between 0 and 1 that attempts to determine how close the prediction (EPD) is to the true breeding value. Accuracy values increase as the amount of information known on an animal increases (what is known about his own performance, relative’s performance, and progeny performance). Charts provided in the Sire Summary and EPD Tools, Averages & Trends documents on the CHA website provide a good example of how EPDs can change with differing accuracy levels. The higher the accuracy, the less likely an EPD will change with the addition of new data. Accuracy represents how close the reported EPD is to the true genetic merit of the animal.

Calf #1 Calf #2 Calf #3 Calf #4

Bull A 700 600 605 610

Bull B 625 615 650 640

Average WW of calves from Bull A = 628.8 Average WW of calves from Bull B = 632.5 Bull A’s WW EPD is 51.5, with an accuracy of .75 Bull B’s WW EPD is 56.0, with an accuracy of .75

The difference in the two bulls’ WW EPDs is 4.5, which is very close to the difference between the average actual weaning weights of their calves in this example, which amounts to 3.7. Even though Bull A has a calf with the highest weaning weight, the rest of the calves show that his EPD should be lower than Bull B’s. Large contemporary groupings and large numbers of progeny in general will result in an EPD that reflects actual data much more closely. The CHA is involved in a four-country genetic evaluation, called PACE (Pan American Cattle Evaluation), which includes data from Canada, the United States, Argentina, and Uruguay. EPDs on animals from these four countries are directly comparable. The evaluation is run twice yearly, in July and December. For more information, please read the EPD Tools, Averages & Trends and Sire Summary Introduction documents (also updated twice yearly) on the CHA website or contact Karin at the office.

the daughter’s progeny. Maternal Calving Ease EPD and Accuracy Maternal Calving Ease EPD represents the ease with which a sire’s daughters will calve as first calf heifers, when compared to daughters of other sires. The EPD is expressed as a percent probability, with a higher value representing daughters with a higher probability of unassisted calving. Scrotal Circumference EPD and Accuracy The Scrotal Circumference EPD reflects differences in scrotal measurements, taken in centimetres and adjusted to 365 days of age. The SC EPD is positively associated with age at puberty of progeny. Cow WT EPD and Accuracy The Cow WT EPD reflects differences in the mature weight of a sire’s daughters. This is important as it is related to maintenance energy requirements.

Canadian Hereford Association EPDs Calving Ease EPD and Accuracy Calving Ease EPDs are calculated using birth weight and calving ease score information. Calving ease EPDs represent the ease with which progeny of an animal are born to first calf heifers. The EPD is expressed as a percent probability, with a higher value representing calves with a higher probability of being born unassisted.

Stayability EPD and Accuracy The Stay EPD reflects differences in the probability that a sire’s daughters will remain in production to produce 3 consecutive calves when retained as breeding heifers. Maternal Productivity Index and Accuracy MPI combines the traits of weaning weight, milk, cow weight and stayability based on their relative economic importance, and then ranks animals based on the predicted maternal strength of their progeny within the population.

Birth Weight EPD and Accuracy Birth weight is an indicator of calving ease. Higher birth weight EPDs usually indicate more calving difficulty. Weaning Weight EPD and Accuracy The weaning EPD reflects progeny growth differences up to 205 days of age.

Feedlot Merit Index and Accuracy FMI combines the traits of calving ease, weaning weight, yearling weight, rib-eye area, marbling and fat based on their relative economic importance, and then ranks animals based on the predicted profitability of their feeder progeny within the population.

Yearling Weight EPD and Accuracy The yearling EPD reflects progeny growth differences through to 365 days of age.

REA EPD and Accuracy The REA EPD reflects differences in rib-eye area carcass measures in feeder progeny.

Milk EPD and Accuracy The milk EPD indicates the ability of a sire’s daughters to provide their calves with an environment that encourages growth from birth to weaning, through mothering ability and milk production. This EPD is expressed in the expected difference in pounds of calf at weaning.

Fat EPD and Accuracy The Fat EPD reflects differences in carcass backfat measures in feeder progeny.

Total Maternal EPD Also known as Milk + Growth, this EPD combines the milk EPD plus ½ the weaning weight EPD. It is expressed in pounds of calf weaned at 205 days and combines the genetics for pre-weaning growth and the influence of the maternal environment on the weaning weight of

Marbling Fat EPD and Accuracy The MARB EPD reflects differences in carcass measures of marbling in feeder progeny, using USDA marbling scores.
