It’s that time of year again. Last year’s heifer calf crop has matured and looks great. Now, it’s time to choose a mating sire. The sire options are endless. As you study the Beef Genetic Management Guide, you narrow your selection down to two bulls. Both offer calving ease and are of the same genetic merit. Now for the tough choice, or maybe it’s not that tough. You notice Sire A has a PregCheck of 100 while Sire B has a PregCheck of 102. What does that mean again? Oh yeah, Sire B averages a 2% higher conception rate. Imagine that, 2% more pregnancies by using a sire with known fertility. The choice is made. Sire B it is.

THE COW

AND THE CARCASS

By Mark McCully, Vice President, Production, Certified Angus Beef LLC

F

or decades, Beef Science 101 taught us to match the cow to the environment and the bull to the market – but that doesn’t mean there is a conflict between cow and carcass. We know consumer demand differentiates cattle value, often resulting in at least $300/head premiums for Prime beef over Select. Cost is always important, but the most profitable commercial cow today may not be the lowest-input cow on your place. With the spread in carcass values, you have to calculate both income and expenses to find the best cows in your herd.

46

The emphasis on carcass merit takes nothing away from the cow’s main job, to get bred and raise a healthy calf. The fundamentals don’t change. Skeptics worry about the downfall of their cow herd should they select for marbling. It may be logical to think selecting for carcass traits causes maternal traits to suffer – our schooling implied that – but it’s not true in most cases.

Today, though, the genetic trend for Yearling Weight and Birth Weight in Angus bulls shows how EPDs can be used effectively to bend the curve and improve both traits at the same time (Graph 1).

Graph 2. Angus Genetic Trend for $W and Marbling

$ W EPD

However, cattlemen have learned to breed around genetic antagonisms for years using expected progeny differences (EPDs). We know muscle and fertility are negatively correlated, which means if you select for ribeye without regard for other traits, conception rate could slide over time. Calving ease and yearling weight are also negatively associated. Without tools, selecting for growth would cause bigger calves at birth. Those who were breeding cattle in the 1970s and ‘80s, during the frame race, remember these correlations all too well.

Moreover, marbling, the key carcass trait for consumer demand, has no negative correlations. It has a moderate positive correlation to milk, which means you should look at both EPDs to coordinate milk with your environment while your cows provide marbling in calves that meet consumer demand. Scientists at Virginia Tech did an extensive review of published research and concluded, “…selection for improvements in marbling should not negatively impact scrotal circumference, age at puberty, heifer pregnancy, calving interval or mature weight.” They also found a favorable relationship between Marbling and Birth Weight, calving ease and $W, and in fact the genetic trends for Angus $W and Marbling are very similar (Graph 2). We find herds that turn in remarkably high Certified Angus Beef® brand acceptance rates, 60% to 75% or higher, from the high desert, Gulf Coast, Midwest and everywhere else cows graze pastures and ranges. In each case, cows meet the requirements of their environment while still producing calves with superior marbling.

1. Sire selection – Significant diversity combined with the ability to sort sires, from the American Angus Association database, points out sires that can produce functional females for your environment and calves that produce a highly valuable carcass. Last summer, in the Angus Main Sire Summary, more than 50 bulls made the top 35th percentile for the combination of Weaning Weight, Scrotal Circumference, CE Maternal, Heifer Pregnancy, $W and Marbling EPDs. 2. Heifer selection – A good cowman still sorts first on conformation and structure, size (too big or small), age, health record and disposition. Adding more data sorts by sire group, dam’s record, pelvic score and reproductive tract score, then adding still more data through genomic testing allows for precise decisions. 3. Culling the cow herd – Cull deeper than the open and problem cows, and remove those with the least genetic merit or ability to produce high value, high marbling calves. At the end of the day, it’s all about balanced selection, but don’t read that as equal. Strategies that maximize marbling while also making improvements in all other economically relevant traits, regardless of environment, are not only plausible but a smart approach for cattlemen with their eye on the cow and the carcass … and profit. 

BUILDING TOOLS AND MAKING THE CASE FOR IMPROVED FEET AND LEG CONFORMATION By Lane Giess, Brady Jensen, Jennifer Bormann, Ph.D. and Bob Weaber, Ph.D., Department of Animal Science and Industry, Kansas State University.

f you ask a feedlot owner or manager what traits make them the most money the answer will never be good feet and legs. So why should cow-calf producers select for qualities that aren’t a high priority further along the value chain? With the national cow herd inventory at a critical low point and unstable cattle prices, it is in the cow-calf producer’s best interest to maximize profitability and enhance operational sustainability. There is no doubt, profit in the cow-calf sector depends on selecting for more than the usual performance traits (such as weaning weight and yearling weight or even end product value). The simple answer is pounds of gain and carcass merit are only part of the overall suite of traits that should be included in a breeding objective. Traits such as fertility, calving ease, docility and soundness all contribute to the economic outcomes of a herd.

So what can seedstock producers do to ensure structural integrity of their herd and maximize the productive life of an animal? By selecting for feet and leg conformation producers may actively improve the overall productivity of the herd. Research suggests that many feet and leg traits are moderately heritable (Table 1).

Selecting for soundness may improve longevity of an animal thereby reducing culling and costs associated with developing replacements. Traits that indicate soundness, including feet and leg conformation, play an important role in determining the longevity of young breeding bulls and females in the herd. Research suggests that breeders may select for improved feet and leg conformation and achieve measurable results from this effort.

1Hahn et al., 1984 2 Choi and McDaniel, 1993 3 Ral et al., 1995 4 Vollema and Groen, 1997

The dairy industry figured out early that the structural integrity of their cows played a key role in the profitability of their cowherd. Most of the research done on soundness can be found in dairy literature, and they now have a global genetic evaluation that includes a feet and leg score trait. The U.S. Holstein Association even claims that from a recent survey, their Feet and Leg Composite score is one of the five most important traits used in selection by Holstein producers. Why is soundness being brought to the table in the beef industry? With the recent welfare concerns of feet and leg issues regarding animals fed a beta-agonist, soundness has become of interest (Thomson et al., 2015). However, researchers (Loneragan et al., 2014; Thomson et al., 2015) have suggested that the feed additives are not the sole cause of lameness or mortality issues. Although the spotlight has only been in feedlot cattle, many commercial cattlemen have expressed concern over the hoof and foot soundness in young seedstock bulls. With record high bull prices, heightened expectations of soundness and longevity have become relevant.

Ultimately, beef producers will make the decision about which feet and leg traits are relevant and which are included in selection criteria. Dairy research suggests “straight‑leggedness” significantly decreases the mobility and comfort of an animal, while contributing to a 59% greater probability of being replaced as compared to cows with a moderate angle to the hock (Forabosco et al., 2009). Cows that remain sound avoid culling and should experience improved longevity. Work is underway at Kansas State University to gather phenotypic data on hoof, foot and leg conformation in Red Angus and Simmental cattle. The project aims to develop an EPD for a range of foot and leg conformation traits that may aid producers in selecting sires that produce sounder progeny. Research activities are planned to help understand the association between feet and leg conformation, culling and longevity data. Over the next several months, K-State team members will collect hoof, foot and leg phenotypes on more than 4,000 animals for use in the analysis. Work to date has included the development of a comprehensive scoring and data collection system. Traits of the front and rear foot and leg evaluated include hoof angle (at toe), heal depth, hoof or claw shape, and knee or hock angulation from two dimensions. The work is supported through the K-State Global Food Systems initiative, the Red Angus Association of American and the American Simmental Association. 

ALLIED GENETIC RESOURCES By Marty Ropp, Allied Genetics Resources

O

n behalf of the more than 70 reputable seedstock producers who make up Allied Genetic Resources , we are thrilled to partner with Genex to move SimGenetics and the beef industry in a positive direction. Our breeder/owners are focused on genetic improvement for commercial producers and their partners down the chain who are the foundation of this industry. With more than 20,000 seedstock cows in the Allied system, we make a positive difference by leveraging the commitment, innovation and value of Allied’s independent producer members into a group that Genex members and customers can count on for the genetics of the future. The Genex team shares this vision, which is why we feel so good about this partnership moving forward. We are constantly asked, “Which traits are the most important and where should priority be placed for selection in the future?” The short answer is all of them! Fertility, calving ease, growth, efficiency, maternal profitability, distinct end product value and more are all important. With the tools available today, improving that array of traits is not only possible, it’s doable.

The primary value of the Allied team is SimGenetics, for two reasons. First, crossbreeding is the No. 1 technology available to add profitability to commercial cow herds. Research shows an added profit of $100 to $200 per commercial cow exposed per year, just for maintaining a crossbred cow and a program to harvest heterosis. Ignoring that well-documented information as a seedstock source borders on the irresponsible. With that in mind, our Simmental breeding efforts, 1,500 bulls annually, are designed to complement the Angus and Red Angus foundations of the U.S. cow herd. The largest offering of the Allied system is the more than 4,000 SimAngus™ bulls. The leading British breed genetics we use are selected to blend the value of Continental and British breeds and ultimately, enhance profitability. Also crucial to this effort is the opportunity to utilize the two largest and most credible beef genetic databases in the world. These SimAngus composite bulls are becoming the industry standard to provide consistent heterosis; they offer a package of traits once thought to be unattainable for those locked into using only one breed.

The following bulls are owned and backed by Allied owners:

Genex has a great track record of providing genetic value and service to their nationwide family of commercial members and customers. The programs they have in place to bolster the genetic base value of this nation’s cow herd and the beef industry, are a solid match for our goals and efforts at Allied. We are truly excited about the partnership and the new offerings from Genex and Allied.  67

True Justice has low birth weight and calving ease potential, with a set of EPDs that read extremely well all the way across the data line.

Graduate has become a household name among the elite proven SimAngus sires. He is one of the few sires to rank in the top 4% for calving ease and birth weight and be over 100 for yearling weight. REA ranking in the top 1% is very difficult to find in a calving ease sire. Graduate rounds out his package with maternal traits including top ranking docility, maternal calving ease and milk/maternal weaning weight.

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. YW: Yearling Weight – The adjusted yearling weights of a bull’s progeny when compared to breed average, in pounds. 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. 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. 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. DOC (Angus) – The difference in yearling cattle temperament, with a higher value indicating more favorable docility. 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. 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. TM, MWW: Total Maternal, Maternal Weaning Weight (Red Angus, 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. 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.

86

ME: Maintenance Energy (Red Angus) – Differences in mature cow maintenance energy requirements. Expressed as megacalories per month. 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) – 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. $W: Weaned Calf Value (Angus) – The expected average difference in future progeny performance for pre-weaning merit, expressed in $/head. $W includes both revenue and cost adjustments associated with differences in birth weight, weaning direct growth, maternal milk and mature cow size.


SIRE INFORMATION $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. $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) – The expected average dollar per head difference in the progeny post weaning performance and carcass value. The $B value is comprised of two pieces: $F and $G. API: All–Purpose Index (Simmental) – Evaluates sires for use on the entire cow herd (bred to both Angus first-calf heifers and mature cows) with daughters retained and remaining heifers and steers put on feed and sold grade and yield. TI: Terminal Index (Simmental) – Evaluates sires for use on mature Angus cows with all offspring put on feed and sold on a grade and yield basis. BMI$: 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. CEZ$: Calving EZ Index (Hereford) – Similar to BMI$, except Hereford bulls are mated only to yearling heifers. Increased emphasis on CE and MCE compared with the other index 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. 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. 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. 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.

Genetic Defects In the last couple of years several genetic defects have been identified in Angus and other breeds, defects which include 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 either been tested or are known free by pedigree for the major genetic defects unless otherwise stated. Pulmonary Arterial Pressure: (PAP) – PAP EPDs can be used to select for decreased PAP score, which is associated with a lesser incidence of high-altitude disease. EPDs are reported in units of mm Hg. Smaller or more negative EPDs are more desirable, just like lower numeric phenotypic PAP scores are more desirable. Genex Quest Graduate – The Genex Quest Program is designed to collect performance and carcass data on Genex young sires from nationwide sources representing various types of operations. The Quest Graduate logo appears on sires that have excelled and graduated from the program.

PREGCHECK™ An evaluation of an individual sire’s frozen semen conception rate. The model and data collection process is the first of it’s kind in the beef industry. PregCheck is not an evaluation of future fertility in a sire’s daughters. For more information visit http://tiny.cc/vmw0qx

CALVING EASE RATINGS Take Calving Ease and Birth Weight EPDs and accuracy into consideration, as well as reports from progeny test herds and breeders. Young, low accuracy sires are not rated. For best results, use proven calving ease sires. PPPP Highly proven, calving ease sire recommended for heifers or cows. PPP Proven, moderate calving ease sire recommended for heifers or cows. Assistance may be required in small heifers.

PP Recommended for cows.

P Recommended for cows only, larger birth weights may result.

BEEF STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS The Beef Genetics Staff provides recommendations based on observations of the bull’s progeny, as well as knowledge of the sires and dams in the pedigree. Information is only provided on bulls with progeny.
