Breed association rules for junior shows will apply to each respective breed. 2. No pre-entry is required. Entry forms will be available Friday and Saturday. 3. Due to limited parking facilities, all trailers must be parked in the designated parking area. On Saturday, Junior cattle will be allowed in the stalls when sales are completed and sale cattle are removed. 4. All junior cattle should be on the grounds and processed by 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 9th. Heifers and steers will be processed Saturday from 2:00 until 5:00 p.m. CST. All heifers purchased from late afternoon sales should be entered ASAP. 5. * * There will be a $20 per head entry fee at the 2013 event. * * All classes will be placed through fifth place, and premiums will be paid for 1st - 5th. The top five heifers and top five steers will pay $300, $200, $150, $100 and $50. 6.Heifer and steer breed shows will be available for the following breeds: Angus, Charolais, Chianina/Chiangus, Gelbvieh, Hereford, Limousin, Polled Hereford, Shorthorn and Simmental. Breed rotation will be Z to A (Angus, Charolais... will show last). Any breed having a sale will qualify to have a junior breed show. 7. All other breeds (AOB), including commercial heifers and cross-bred steers will compete in AOB classes. AOB heifers will show by weight. 8. Heifers eligible to show must be born on or after September 1, 2011. Heifer classes will be based on the futurity system and will be determined after all entries are made. Steers will show by breed with classes determined by weight. 9. Heifers (born on or after 09/01/11) purchased in any of the Agribition sales will be eligible to compete in the Junior Show. **Check the respective breed catalog to see if percentage cattle show as AOB.** Quintin Smith - Junior Show Contact 615-207-0830

New Generation AGA EPDs The American Gelbvieh Association’s (AGA) January 2013 EPDs are based on a new collaborative national cattle evaluation (NCE) with the American Simmental Association (ASA). Below is a summary of some of the enhancements to the AGA new generation EPDs, followed by trait averages and percentile charts.

Gelbvieh and Balancer® Share a Common Base with Simmental and Red Angus

Multi-Breed EPDs Provide More Complete Balancer EPDs The true multi-breed EPD NCE conducted by the ASA enables the inclusion of more progeny data from Red Angus and Angus sires, especially for the carcass traits.

Growth Traits are More Reliable The new EPDs for weaning weight (WW), yearling weight (YW) and carass weight (CW) are more reliable because the new statistical process accepts a wider age window for weaning weight. This is especially beneficial for breeders that wean calves early due to drought. Historically, weights from early-weaned calves were not included in the NCE.

Gelbvieh and Balancer EPDs are now on the same base with Simmental and Red Angus, which means that EPDs for each trait (except stayability) are directly comparable to ASA and Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) EPDs. This was a huge, progressive decision by the AGA Board of Directors, made to simplify bull selection for commercial producers.

Carcass Traits are Standardized In recent years, Gelbvieh and Balancer carcass traits were adjusted to a fat end-point instead of an age endpoint like the rest of the industry. AGA’s transition to age-adjusted carcass EPDs will eliminate the gaps in the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center’s carcass EPD breed comparisons. This change also means that the days-tofinish (DtF) EPD is replaced by a fat (FT) EPD. A yield grade (YG) EPD is also new. For both FT and YG, lower EPDs are typically more favorable. For questions or more information contact the AGA at 303-465-2333 or visit www.gelbvieh.org.

Calving Ease and Calving Ease Daughters EPDs Converted to Industry Standard Terminology For over 25 years, the AGA calving ease (CE) and calving ease daughter (CED) EPDs were reported in the form of a ratio. They are now reflected as percentages. Higher CE values equal fewer unassisted births from sires when mated to first-calf heifers. Higher CED EPDs indicate less calving difficulty from a sire’s own first-calf daughters.
