SALE BOOK EPD EXPLANATIONS CALVING EASE DIRECT (CED):

Percent of unassisted births of a bull’s calves when he is used on heifers. A higher number is favorable, meaning better calving ease.

MILK (MK):

The genetic ability of a sire’s daughters to produce milk expressed in pounds of weaning weight.

YIELD GRADE (YG):

BIRTH WEIGHT (BW): Predicts the difference, in pounds, for birth weight of the calf.

WEANING WEIGHT (WW):

Differences in yield grade score, which is a predictor of percent retail product. Smaller values suggest that progeny will have a better lean to fat ratio.

Predicts the difference, in pounds, for weaning weight (adjusted to the age of dam and a standard 205 days of age). This is an indicator of growth from birth to weaning.

CARCASS WEIGHT (CW):

YEARLING WEIGHT (YW):

RIBEYE AREA (REA):

Predicts the expected difference, in pounds, for yearling weight (adjusted to a standard 365 days of age). This is an indicator of growth from birth to yearling.

Differences in pounds of hot carcass weight, adjusted to an industry standard age endpoint.

Differences in ribeye area in inches between the 12th and 13th rib. Greater ribeye areas are preferable.

MARBLING (MB):

STAYABILITY (ST):

Females that stay in the herd longer are by far the most profitable. This EPD predicts the genetic difference, in terms of percent probability, that a bull’s daughters will stay within a herd to at least six years of age.

Predicts the differences in the degree of marbling within the ribeye as expressed in marbling score units. Greater marbling numbers are preferable and are an indicator of higher carcass quality grades.

FEEDER PROFIT INDEX (FPI)

DOCILITY (DOC):

Docility is an important trait that impacts beef operations’ bottom lines. Studies have shown that animals with calmer dispositions are more productive both on the ranch as well as in the feedyard.

An economic selection index designed to aid producers in selecting sires whose progeny will perform in the feedlot and are sold on grade and yield. Well ranking sires for FPI have higher marbling and carcass weight than their contemporaries.

GENOMIC ENHANCED EPDs All Bulls in this sale have been DNA-tested to produce genomic enhanced EPDs (GE EPDs). The major benefits of GE EPDs are: risk reduction through improved accuracies, value of time to assess breeding stock at a younger age, increased rate of genetic progress, and obtaining data on economically important traits which are expensive or difficult to measure.

BUILDING A LEGACY Kittle Farms was built upon the dreams, aspirations, and hard work of my father, Johnny Kittle. While there have been cattlemen who managed larger herds and who operated farms for longer periods of time, nobody enjoyed the cattle business as much as Johnny Kittle. Dad got his start in the cattle business as a kid working on his grandparents’ Sand Mountain farm. The cattle market, at that time, was considerably different than the robust market we face today. In fact, Dad often told of his grandparents slaughtering their cattle and selling the beef just to survive in the business. In 1972, at just fourteen years of age, Dad used a government agricultural loan to purchase the first cows in his own operation. Eleven years later, in 1983, he along with my mother, Dana Kittle, purchased a small farm in Geraldine, Alabama where Kittle Farms is now located. My parents continued and built upon his cattle operation for more than 40 years. Outside of his family, there was nothing in this world that gave Dad more enjoyment and that he took more pride in than his cattle. Following his untimely passing in 2014, our family made a commitment to build upon the legacy Dad created in the cattle business. We dedicate this “Building a Legacy” Sale to my Dad, Johnny Kittle, the greatest cattleman I’ve ever known.
