Cow Sense & Science

THE WHOLE IS GREATER THAN THE PARTS

Today, breeding the next generation of profitable cattle requires the use of all tools available to the modern cattleman – from data-based tools like genetic evaluations and genomic predictions to those phenotypic characteristics that require evaluation by the stockman’s skilled eye. It’s all about combining Cow Sense & Science to determine a bull’s real-world worthiness.

FERTILITY RANKINGS

Consistently Create Pregnancies

Five years ago, GENEX became the first in the A.I. industry to introduce a beef sire fertility ranking model and data collection process called PregCheck™ fertility rankings. Today, we remain the only A.I. organization to offer you data-backed analysis of a bull’s frozen semen fertility. PregCheck™ rankings are an important component of our Cow Sense & Science philosophy and another way we are helping you consistently create pregnancies.

Years of Put PregCheck™ Rankings to Work for You

PregCheck™ fertility rankings measure an individual sire’s frozen semen conception rate and are based on actual breeding and pregnancy data. The rankings use 100 as a base with every one point change equivalent to a 1% difference in conception rate.

For example, Bull A has a 99 PregCheck™ and Bull B has a 104 PregCheck™. Bull A is trending below his contemporaries with a 99 PregCheck™ ranking, while Bull B is expected to perform 4% above the average conception rate of his contemporaries and 5% higher than Bull A.

A Change that Benefits YOU! GENEX Transitions to 1/4 cc Straws

Why is GENEX transitioning to a ¼ cc straw package? Simply put, fertility. Research trials performed by GENEX and published in the scientific journal, Theriogenology, showed a 1.5% conception rate advantage for ¼ cc straws compared to ½ cc straws.

What makes the ¼ cc straw more fertile? The ¼ cc semen straw has been the global standard for straw package size for several years. The straw will contain the same number of sperm cells as the previous ½ cc straws with less extender. The new straw size allows sperm cell to cool more rapidly and uniformly resulting in improved sperm cell viability.

When will ¼ cc straws be available? All GENEX semen produced since Dec. 1, 2019 has been packaged in ¼ cc straws. During the transition period you may receive ¼ cc or ½ cc straws, depending on the bull’s semen inventory.

KombiColor Gun Special

During the transition to ¼ cc straws, make sure you have an A.I. gun that can accommodate both straw sizes.

Buy $1000 of semen and receive

a free KombiColor A.I. gun! Effective January 1, 2020 – April 30, 2020.

How Much Calving Ease

is Enough?

By Kelli Retallick, Genetic Service Director, Angus Genetics Inc.

Calving ease is a desired trait. Most would argue it is not only desired but necessary, as calving difficulty can lower calf survivability and extend post-partum intervals for cows, which then lowers breed-back rates. Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) can be utilized to help manage this risk. Often, producers ask, “Can we have too much calving ease?” To answer, it is important to reflect on the basis of the calving ease argument, the build of the EPD and what to expect when using these tools. Knowing this, cow/calf producers – both seedstock and commercial alike – can make informed decisions about their own herds.

Using the Tool Calving Ease Direct, or CED, is the most effective tool when deciding which bulls to mate to first-calf heifers. Expressed as a probability percentage, CED aims to predict the percentage of unassisted births a bull will produce when mated to heifers. Let’s compare two bulls. Bull A has a CED EPD of +2, and bull B has a CED EPD of +7. When mating these two bulls to similar groups of heifers, phenotypically and genetically, one would expect, on average, bull B to produce 5% more unassisted births than bull A. While no one can indefinitely state the perfect cut‑off to be used across the industry, producers can rely on the information available to them to make the best decisions. It gets even simpler when producers can rely on past records to benchmark the amount of calving difficulty experienced to understand where selection pressure should be placed.

Behind the EPD Calving ease scores collected by breeders are utilized to predict CED. These scores range from 1-5, where 1 would indicate a birth with no assistance. For Angus cattle, only scores reported on first-calf heifers are used in the prediction of the CED EPD. Mature female scores, while they can be reported, are not used in the national cattle evaluation as not enough variation, or differences among reported scores, exists to add value to CED predictions. Birth weight is used as a correlated trait in the calving ease evaluation. The correlation, or strength of relationship, between calving ease and birth weight is -0.65 which is a moderately strong, negative relationship. A negative correlation suggests as one trait goes up the other goes down. Therefore, in most cases, as calving ease increases, birth weight tends to trend downward. When focusing on decreasing calving difficulty in first-calf heifers, it is most effective

38


to focus on CED EPDs as this is the economically relevant trait. On the other hand, if the focus is to strictly increase or decrease birth weight, the BW EPD is the tool of choice and most effective to influence changes on actual birth weights of calves.

Figure 1 breaks out the percentage of assisted births recorded for each CED EPD possessed by the sire when bred to a breed average Angus female. As the CED EPD of the sire increases, the number of assisted births decreases. However, the decrease may not be by an entire percentage point as expected. The reason? Mating Angus sires to Angus females who are breed average for both calving ease direct and maternal is not the expected industry average mating.

These scores and weights are then evaluated together in a threshold model, but it is important to understand in a threshold model an underlying assumption is made about the amount of existing calving difficulty. Therefore, if the tool is predicting the decreased number of assisted births in a population, a percentage of assisted births is assumed. In the case of the Angus CED EPD, this threshold model was designed to help lower the level of assisted births present in a mixed breed commercial cowherd, which in most cases would have a higher incidence of calving difficulty than a purebred registered Angus herd. This is why patterns in the data representing the percentage of assisted and unassisted births of the purebred Angus herd are not always completely linear when tracking up or down the CED scale.

In a recent survey conducted by the American Angus Association, producers reported treating calving ease as a completely separate trait using independent culling levels when making genetic decisions. Independent culling is a selection strategy stating an individual animal will be culled if it does not meet the specific requirement of a single trait, regardless of the levels of other traits. Using this method of independent culling, while efficient in making genetic change in that specific trait, can lead to drawbacks which can affect herds in the long term. Producers setting specific thresholds on any trait, ignoring a multi-trait

approach, can lead to eliminating bulls for falling just under this culling threshold even though they may possess other characteristics valuable to the operation.

In Conclusion The bottom line – not all cowherds are created equal. What can be utilized safely in one herd may cause problems in another. Knowing CED is designed to be a heifer mating tool, using different bulls to mate first-calf heifers and mature cows may be logical. The best advice may be to understand the cowherd these bulls will be utilized in. As a cattle producer, you know your cowherd better than anyone. If the bulls used on first-calf heifers have averaged a +6 for the CED EPD for several years and you have yet to pull a calf, then a +6 CED bull is a safe option. On the other hand, if your bulls have averaged +10 CED and you have repeatedly pulled a higher percentage of calves from first-calf heifers than desired, then more calving ease may be necessary. Understanding the relationships in your herd is crucial to the overall success of the genetic program. 

Understanding the $Value Indexes From the American Angus Association

Dollar value indexes, or $Values, are a tool used to select for several traits at once based on a specific breeding objective. An economic index approach takes into account genetic and economic values as well as the relationships between traits to select for profit.

Maternal Weaned Calf Value ($M), an index expressed in dollars per head, predicts profitability differences in progeny due to genetics from conception to weaning. $M is built off of a self-replacing herd model where commercial cattlemen replace 25% of their breeding females in the first generation and 20% in subsequent generations. Remaining cull females and all male progeny are sold as feeder calves. Increased selection pressure on $M aims to decrease overall mature cow size and improve foot structure and fertility while maintaining weaning weights consistent with today’s production. Weaned Calf Value ($W), an index expressed in dollars per head, provides the expected difference in future progeny preweaning performance from birth to weaning. $W assumes that producers retain 20% of their female progeny for replacements and sell the rest of their cull female and male progeny as feeder calves. Over time, increased selection pressure on $W will increase weaning and maternal milk traits while also continuing to increase mature cow size. Feedlot Value ($F), an index expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning merit compared to progeny of other sires. The underlying objective assumes commercial producers will retain ownership of cattle through the feedlot phase and sell fed cattle on a carcass weight basis with no considerations of premiums or discounts for quality and yield grade.

Grid Value ($G), an index expressed in dollars per carcass, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for carcass grid merit, including quality and yield grade attributes, compared to progeny of other sires. Beef Value ($B), an index expressed in dollars per carcass, facilitates simultaneous multi-trait genetic selection for feedlot and carcass merit. $B represents the expected average differences in the progeny postweaning performance and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires. This index assumes commercial producers wean all male and female progeny, retain ownership of these animals through the feedlot phase and market these animals on a qualitybased carcass grid. Combined Value ($C), an index expressed in dollars per head, includes all traits that make up both $M and $B with the objective that commercial producers will replace 20% of their breeding females per year with replacement heifers retained within their own herd. The remaining cull heifer and steer progeny are then assumed to be sent to the feedlot where the producers retain ownership of those cattle and eventually sell them on a quality-based carcass merit grid.

Federal sets the standard for combining calving ease, balanced traits and outstanding visual phenotype and maternal function. Federal is the top tier of the breed for udder suspension and teat quality. Combined with his SCF, look for his daughters to be standouts for udder quality and longevity. Look for Federal to sire attractive, well-balanced cattle that are conservatively marked, with good capacity, muscle and stoutness for the calving ease he offers.

NATURAL BOVINE COLOSTRUM DELIVERING HIGH IMMUNITY Ask your GENEX representative about SCCL colostrum today!


The NEW ESTROTECT™ Breeding Indicator featuring patent pending Breeding Bullseye™ technology makes it easier than ever to identify cows that are in heat, pinpoint timing for AI and Timed AI protocols, as well as confirm successful pregnancies.

BREED

DON’T BREED

According to third-party research, when the new ESTROTECT™ Breeding Bullseye™ is rubbed off by mounting activity, cows are up to three times more likely to conceive. Not only does ESTROTECT™ with the Breeding Bullseye™ indicate when a cow is in heat, it tells you exactly when the animal should be bred to achieve optimal results.

TERMINOLOGY EPD: Expected Progeny Difference – The expected differences in performance of a sire’s progeny when compared to the average progeny of all sires evaluated within the breed. Based on actual performance, progeny performance and relatives’ performance.

CETM, CEM, MCE: Calving Ease Total Maternal, Calving Ease Maternal, Maternal Calving Ease – The difference in percentage of unassisted births with a higher value indicating greater calving ease in first–calf daughters.

ACC: Accuracy – The reliability placed on the EPD.

Milk, MM: Maternal Milk – The amount of pre–weaning performance gained by calves which can be attributed to the milking ability of a bull’s daughters, expressed in pounds of calf.

CE, CED: Calving Ease Direct – The difference in percentage of unassisted births, with a higher value indicating greater calving ease in first–calf heifers. BW: Birth Weight – The birth weights of a bull’s progeny when compared to the breed average, in pounds. WW: Weaning Weight – The adjusted weaning weights of a bull’s progeny when compared to the breed average, in pounds.

TM, MWW: Total Maternal, Maternal Weaning Weight (Simmental, Charolais) – Measure of a sire’s ability to transmit milk production and growth rate through his daughters. Predicts the weaning weight of a sire’s daughters’ calves. Equal to his milk EPD plus half his WW EPD.

YW: Yearling Weight – The adjusted yearling weights of a bull’s progeny when compared to breed average, in pounds.

M&G: Maternal Milk & Growth (Hereford) – The Milk EPD plus half the WW EPD. A sire’s M&G EPD reflects what he is expected to transmit to his daughters for a combination of growth genetics and maternal production.

UDDR: Udder Suspension (Hereford) – Differences in sire EPDs predict the difference expected in the sires’ daughters udder characteristics when managed in the same environment. Weak udder suspension results in pendulous udders that make it difficult for a calf to nurse.

ME: Maintenance Energy (Red Angus) – Differences in mature cow maintenance energy requirements. Expressed as megacalories per month.

TEAT: Teat Size (Hereford) – Differences in sire EPDs predict the difference expected in the sires’ daughters udder characteristics when managed in the same environment. Oversized teats are difficult for newborn calves to nurse and the calf may not receive adequate colostrum. DMI: Dry Matter Intake (Hereford) – Predicts the daily consumption of pounds of feed. RADG: Residual Average Daily Gain (Angus) – The adjusted amount of post weaning gain in future progeny, in pounds, given a constant amount of feed consumed. ADG: Average Daily Gain (Simmental) – The difference in pounds of daily gain expected between animals' progeny during the post weaning feeding period. SCR, SC: Scrotal Circumference (Angus, Charolais, Hereford) – The adjusted yearling scrotal circumferences of a bull’s progeny when compared to breed average, in centimeters. SCF: Sustained Cow Fertility (Hereford) – A prediction of a cow’s ability to continue to calve from three years of age through twelve years of age, given she calved as a two-year-old. Expressed as a deviation in the proportion of the ten-possible calvings to twelve years old expressed as a probability. DOC (Angus, Simmental) – The difference in yearling cattle temperament, with a higher value indicating more favorable docility. CLAW: Claw Set (Angus) – Expressed in units of claw-set score, with a lower EPD being more favorable indicating a sire will produce progeny with more ideal claw set. The ideal target for claw set being toes are symmetrical, evenly and appropriately spaced. ANGLE: Foot Angle (Angus) – Expressed in units of foot-angle score, with a lower EPD being more favorable indicating a sire will produce progeny with more ideal foot angle. The ideal targeting animals with a 45-degree angle at the pastern joint with appropriate length and heel depth.

56

HPG, HP: Heifer Pregnancy (Red Angus, Angus) – Differences in percent probability of female progeny conceiving to calve as 2-year-olds; a more accurate measurement than her sire’s or paternal brothers’ scrotal circumference. MkH: Milking Herds (Angus) – Indicates the number of herds from which daughters are reported. MkD: Milking Daughters (Angus) – Reflects the number of daughters having progeny weaning weight records included in the analysis. MW: Mature Weight (Angus) – A predictor of the difference in mature weight of a sire’s daughters compared to the daughters of other sires, expressed in pounds. MH: Mature Height (Angus) – A predictor of the difference in mature height of a sire’s daughters compared to daughters of other sires, expressed in inches. STAY: Stayability (Red Angus, Simmental) – Differences in percent probability of daughters staying productive past the age of six. CW: Carcass Weight – The adjusted carcass weights of a sire’s progeny, expressed in pounds. MB, MARB, IMF: Marbling – A predictor of the difference in a sire’s progeny for percent marbling score or percent intramuscular fat in the ribeye muscle compared to other sires. YG: Yield Grade (Simmental, Red Angus) – Expressed as a deviation of Yield Grade units where negative values are desirable. REA, RE: Ribeye Area – Adjusted ribeye area of a sire’s progeny, measured in square inches. FAT, BF: Back Fat – The adjusted twelfth rib fat thickness of a sire’s progeny, expressed in inches. SHR: Shear Force (Simmental) – Pounds of force required to shear a steak. Carc H/P and Ult H/P: Group/progeny (Angus) – Reflects the number of contemporary groups and the number of carcass and ultrasound progeny included in the analysis.


I: Interim – The EPD is based on performance information of a bull’s sire, dam and relatives. P: Pedigree estimate. $EN: Cow Energy Value (Angus) – Assesses differences in cow energy requirements as an expected dollar savings difference in daughters of sires, expressed in dollar savings/cow/year. A larger value is more favorable when comparing two animals. $EN savings include lactation energy requirements and energy costs associated with differences in mature cow size. $M: Maternal Weaned Calf Value (Angus) – Expressed in dollars per head, $M predicts profitability differences in progeny due to genetics from conception to weaning. $M is built off a selfreplacing herd model where commercial cattlemen replace 25% of their breeding females in the first generation and 20% in subsequent generations. Remaining cull females and all male progeny are sold as feeder calves.

TI: Terminal Index (Simmental) – Evaluates sires for use on mature Angus cows with all offspring put on feed and sold on a grade and yield basis. BMI$: Baldy Maternal Index (Hereford) – An index to maximize profit for commercial cow/calf producers who use Hereford bulls in rotational crossbreeding programs on Angus-based cows and heifers. Retained ownership of calves is assumed, with fed cattle marketed on a Certified Hereford Beef® (CHB) pricing grid. BII$: Brahman Influence Index (Hereford) – This index is similar to BMI$, except Hereford bulls are used in rotational crossing with Brahman rather than Angus. Greater emphasis placed on traits deficient in Brahman-cross cattle, (fertility and age at puberty) and less on acceptable traits (growth and calving ease). CHB$: Certified Hereford Beef Index (Hereford) – A terminal sire index where Hereford bulls are mated to British-cross cows and all offspring are sold as fed cattle on a CHB pricing grid.

$W: Weaned Calf Value (Angus) – Provides the expected dollarper-head difference in future progeny preweaning performance from birth to weaning, expressed in $/head. $W assumes producers retain 20% of their female progeny for replacements and sell the rest of their cull female and male progeny as feeder calves.

HB: HerdBuilder (Red Angus) – Used by producers to increase the sustainability of the cow herd and ultimately their operation. HB assumes bulls will be mated to both cows and heifers, replacement females will be retained within the herd, and the remaining progeny will be sold on a quality based carcass grid.

$F: Feedlot Value (Angus) – Calculates a $/head difference in expected progeny performance for post weaning merit. $F uses WW and YW EPDs along with trait inter-relationships. Typical feedlot gain value, feed consumption and cost differences are accounted for in the final calculations.

GM: GridMaster Index (Red Angus) – Used by producers whose primary goal is to maximize profitability of feeders in the feedyard and on the rail. GM assumes bulls will be mated to cows only, and all progeny will be sold on a quality based carcass grid.

$G: Grid Value (Angus) – Combines quality grade and yield grade attributes, and is calculated for animals with carcass EPDs, ultrasound EPDs or both types of EPDs. A three-year rolling average is used to establish typical industry economic values for quality grade and yield grade schedules. $B: Beef Value (Angus) – A terminal index representing the expected average dollar-per-carcass difference in the progeny postweaning performance and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires. This index assumes commercial producers wean all male and female progeny, retain ownership of these animals through the feedlot phase and market these animals on a qualitybased carcass grid. $C: Combined Value (Angus) – Expressed in $/head, $C includes all traits that make up both $M and $B with the objective that commercial producers will replace 20% of their breeding females per year with replacement heifers retained within their own herd. The remaining cull heifer and steer progeny are assumed to be sent to the feedlot where producers retain ownership of those cattle and will sell them on a quality-based carcass merit grid. API: All–Purpose Index (Simmental) – Evaluates sires for use on the entire cow herd (bred to both Angus first-calf heifers and mature cows) with daughters retained and remaining heifers and steers put on feed and sold grade and yield.

TSI: Terminal Sire Index (Charolais) – Combines BW, WW, YW, REA, HCW, MARB and FAT into one single value. The TSI uses estimates of the genetic relationships between traits with an economic default value based on three year rolling USDA data. PregCheck™ Rankings: An evaluation of an individual sire’s frozen semen conception rate. The model and data collection process is the first of its kind in the beef industry. PregCheck™ fertility rankings are not an evaluation of future fertility in a sire’s daughters. Genetic Defects: In recent years several genetic defects have been identified, including Arthrogryposis Multiplex (AM), Neuropathic Hydrocephalus (NH), Contractural Arachnodactyly (CA), Developmental Duplication (DD), Osteopetrosis (OS) and Oculocutaneous Hypopigmentation (OH). It is important for A.I. companies to be vigilant concerning genetic defects as the opportunity to increase the frequency of these negative traits on the population can be significant. With bulls selling 50 to 100,000 units, a single carrier bull can widely spread a genetic problem. GENEX has worked hard to ensure this does not happen. All GENEX bulls listed in this directory have been tested or are known free by pedigree for the major genetic defects, unless otherwise stated.
