The calving ease Resource son you have been looking for! Source exhibits the same moderate-frame, square hip, good feet and extreme capacity as his sire. His 50K enhanced EPD tabulation shows breed-leading SCR, DOC and $W with more marbling than his sire. The first calves born at Mytty Angus in Montana were born easy; they have above average length of spine with big tops. The foot and leg structure in the calves appears to be similar to what you would expect from Resource.

Pathfinder was the highest selling bull in the 2016 Buford Ranch sale. He is a genomic standout son of Resource that blends his DNA with tremendous visual qualities to make him the must‑use son of Resource. His dam is a picture-perfect daughter of Bismarck, and a full sister to Buford Elba 9000. They come from the popular S A V Elba cow family and her grandam is the famous Elba 1094. Pathfinder should moderate birth weights, while adding the similar overall muscle mass and dimension of his sire, on a slightly bigger frame.

One of the most massively constructed Angus bulls we’ve ever evaluated; Rubicon has the makings of a real cow-changer! Impressive from all angles, cattlemen who have seen him remark about the bull’s muscle thickness, body mass and overall capacity. If you have low birth weights, or pretty cows that need more “punch,” look to Rubicon for big time performance and carcass EPDs, as well as the extra physical power necessary to leave an impression on your buyer’s mind and an increase in your ranch’s bottom line.

Element is quickly proving to be a sleep-all-night calving ease sire and you won’t have to sacrifice performance. The Element daughters are big-ribbed with extra style and base width. Coupled with his mid-range MILK EPD, Element is becoming a true cow maker. His outcross pedigree makes him an ideal mating for daughters of many popular Angus sires.

JLF Vixon 6062, Daughter

He is long-necked, sleek-fronted, deep-flanked with one of the soundest set of feet in our lineup. The terms depth, spring of rib, wide-based and thick are normally not in the description of a calving ease sire, but that is what you will get with Sub-Zero. He has been used heavily in both purebred and commercial outfits with great success.

Creating More Pregnancies By: Patsy Houghton, President and General Manager, Heartland Cattle Company

Heartland Cattle Company is a 5000-head Professional Heifer Development and Research Center located in southwest Nebraska. Long-term customers and employees are hallmarks of the Heartland program. Over the past 26 years, we have developed and artificially inseminated (A.I.) over 105,000 estrous synchronized beef heifers representing 31 states. We believe in closely defined (35 or 45 day) breeding programs using visual heat detection along with total A.I. and do not provide any excuses for open heifers. Over the life of the business, we have routinely met fertility targets of 70% first service conception rate (FSCR), 85% seasonal pregnancy rate (PR) for 35-day heifers and 90% PR for 45-day heifers. These fertility goals remain in place today.

44

Over the past few years, we’ve noticed a distinct trend toward increased variation in service sire fertility. It is no longer unusual to see A.I. service sire fertility range from 50 to 90% for FSCR, with outlier bulls ranging all the way from 0 to 100%. We’ve also learned that, by itself, evaluating semen under a microscope for morphology, motility and morbidity is not always a good predictor of subsequent A.I. sire fertility. Wide variations in FSCR often translate into reduced seasonal PR, fewer calves born and less pounds weaned. This is why fertility is so important to a rancher’s bottom line. Any measure that predicts and/ or improves service sire fertility will

help keep cow/calf producers in business, especially during tough market times! The ability to identify A.I. sires that will consistently deliver a 70% and higher first service conception rate is a big step in the right direction. That’s why we pay close attention to the PregCheck™ fertility rankings GENEX provides. Using 100 as the base, PregCheck™ fertility rankings are calculated as an index and are designed to predict an individual sire’s frozen semen conception rate. So, let’s compare two bulls with PregCheck™ rankings. Bull A has a 104 PregCheck™ with 93% reliability versus Bull B with a 99 PregCheck™ and 75% reliability. At 93% reliable, we are confident Bull A will perform


Photo by Darcy Krick.

at 4% above the average of his contemporaries for conception rate, and he is likely 5% higher than Bull B for conception rate. At only 75% reliable, there is still some uncertainty as to how Bull B will actually perform over time until he is bred to more females, but at this point Bull B is trending below the average of his contemporaries. At Heartland Cattle Company, we appreciate the value of measuring economically important traits. Fertility tops this list! If we are weighing the pros and cons of two or more service sires, the bull with the higher PregCheck™ fertility ranking wins! On the other end of the fertility spectrum, we are also confident any sire that doesn’t meet reasonable conception rate

goals will be removed from the GENEX A.I. sire lineup. In our eyes, this reflects business integrity and customer commitment. We’ve had a number of opportunities to compare GENEX PregCheck™ rankings to actual service sire fertility and are happy to report a nice correlation between the two. As the database expands, we believe PregCheck™ fertility rankings will only get better with time. All of us at Heartland Cattle Company want to thank GENEX for their proactive approach to solving what has become one of our industry’s biggest challenges! 

“If we are weighing the pros and cons of two or more service sires, the bull with the higher PregCheck™ ranking wins!” “Variation in service sire fertility is huge. At Heartland Cattle Company we see most A.I. service sires range anywhere from 50 to 90% for first service conception rate; with outlier bulls ranging all the way from 0 to 100%. Anything we can do to identify service sires that will consistently provide a 70% and higher first service conception rate is a big plus for our customers and our business. That’s why we pay close attention to the PregCheck™ ranking GENEX calculates and provides. If we are weighing the pros and cons of two or more service sires, the bull with the higher PregCheck™ value wins!”

Management Decisions that Affect Early Embryo Development By: Carl Dahlen and Joel Caton, North Dakota State University

If we time-bred a group of synchronized cows and 65% were pregnant as a result of artificial insemination (A.I.), most of us would be happy with the results. Many factors would contribute to that success: adequate body condition score, sufficient days post-partum, good protocol compliance, proper semen handling and A.I. technique, etc. However, what if you also knew fertilization occurred in just over 90% of the females? And what if pregnancy rates were closer to 40% with the same 90% originally fertilized? Would we still be happy?

Embryos at 34 Days of Gestation

Non-Viable embryo

Viable embryo

Background The first 50 days after breeding is a critical window in the life of a gestating calf. In the span of less than two months, our future calf crop transforms from microscopic sperm and egg cells into fetuses that are slightly smaller than a man’s fist. By the first two months of gestation, calves also have a majority of all organ systems developed. However, for every two breedings that result in a successful pregnancy, at least one breeding results in a fertilized embryo that was lost somewhere in the first 50 days of gestation. Researchers of North Dakota State University (NDSU) are currently investigating unknown aspects of how nutritional management affects development of gestating calves during this critical first 50 days of early pregnancy. Once we better understand what might be causing fetal loss and altered development, altering management strategies to mitigate losses can begin.

What do we know and what can we do about it? Administering vaccines close to the time of breeding (off-label) poses a real danger that the pregnancy rate with A.I. could be compromised, especially in the case of modified-live vaccines. Some vaccines can cause short-term infections that may harm oocyte/embryo development or temporarily disrupt normal reproductive function. Be sure to follow all label instruction for timing of vaccine administration. Embryonic loss can also result from cattle that become stressed after breeding. An embryo within five days of gestation is protected in the oviduct of the reproductive tract and is less sensitive to stress compared to an embryo in the uterus. To help prevent or reduce stress in pregnant cattle, it is suggested to refrain from shipping them between days 5 and 42, as up to 10% of pregnancy losses can occur simply because cattle were shipped at the wrong time. Keep in mind losses are also possible when cattle are shipped between 42 and 60 days, but the risk lowers as gestation progresses. Even trailing cattle to their next pasture can be a stressful event if low-stress handling principles aren’t followed.

Heat stress can impact embryo survival as well, so be proactive with weather monitoring, and ensure cattle have access to quality water and shade. If cattle need to be handled during heat events, move working hours to early mornings or consider the option to delay handling in extreme weather cases if possible. Diet and environmental changes immediately postbreeding also can impact pregnancy losses. Moving heifers from a dry lot setting to a pasture immediately after breeding can cause a reduction in pregnancy rates. If possible, give heifers previous exposure to summer grazing pastures before breeding and turnout or provide a supplement after heifers are moved on pasture.

What don’t we know and what are we evaluating? The research group at NDSU has recently developed a method to study factors that affect embryo development. The latest project compared embryo, uterus and placenta development up to day 50 in heifers. The heifers were split into two groups that were on different planes of nutrition at the start of A.I. After they were bred, one group of heifers gained 1 lb. per day (Control), and the other group did not gain any weight (Restricted). Even with the moderate difference in diet, the research group saw major impacts on nutrients supplied in fetal fluids. Changes in nutrient transporters as day of gestation advanced from breeding to day 50 were also observed. Gene expressions of key proteins that help the embryo attach in the uterus were also changed. Using a powerful tool to sequence RNA, NDSU researchers uncovered the two maternal diets resulted in large numbers of differential expressed genes in muscle and other tissues from 50-day-old developing fetuses. It is not clear how differences seen in developing fetuses are ultimately translated to differences throughout the lifetime of the calf crop; however, the take-home message is: a moderate dietary change in heifers from breeding to day 50 of gestation can have major impacts on gene expression during early embryo development. Certainly these results will pave the way for much more research with a common goal; to help improve the reproductive efficiency and productivity of beef cattle. 

Low Stress

Cattle Handling By: Curt Pate, Curt Pate Stockmanship

Low stress cattle handling can be boiled down to three concepts: pressure, feeling and timing.

Photo credit: JD Rosman, Angus Media.

Pressure is what creates a reaction in an animal. The type of pressure, the amount of pressure, the proximity of the pressure, the awareness of the animal and how familiar the animal is with the type of pressure affects the animal’s reaction to the pressure. Feel is applying the proper pressure in the proper amount. The way you go about changing the mind of the animal to your pressure is key to how well the animal will accept and respond to the pressure. Once the animal’s attention is on you, the timing of how much you pressure and the kind of pressure is also very important to not only get the animal to do what you would like, but also to keep it doing it. You must become

more important than every other stimulus in the environment, but not scare the animal by applying too much pressure.

Here is the order I think one should take when moving livestock… Before penetrating the animal’s flight zone, approach from an angle and use a speed that lets the animal realize the pressure you are applying. When you get a response, immediately change your pressure to reward the animal or to reassure the animal and to get it thinking out of the pressure. The timing of this is important. The closer you make the change in pressure to them thinking about it, rather than physically doing it, the better the timing.

Once you find the pressure zone that creates movement then you can change the angle of the pressure to create direction. You may be wrong in your estimations and this is when you time your change of pressure to get the direction you want. By your timing of pressure and also the release of pressure, the animal is learning to take your pressure and work for you. No matter if it is a herd of livestock or a single animal, I treat them the same way. With one animal I get movement that fits the situation, then try to point the nose where I would like it to go. With a herd it is important to get proper movement, then establish direction with the lead animals without stopping the movement of the herd. 

EPD 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. ACC: Accuracy – The reliability placed on the EPD. 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. 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.

88

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.

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.

PregCheck
