IBBA Continues to Gather Samples for 50k Genotyping Project and Genome-assisted EPD Development Dear Brangus Breeder: The Breed Improvement Committee met in Houston on March 1, 2012, and discussed our effort to accrue approximately 800 DNA samples from Brangus cattle for 50k genotyping with the Illumina BovineSNP50 assay. These data will be used to develop genome-

assisted genetic evaluation (i.e., gEPD). To date, 200 samples have been catalogued at IBBA. This project is occurring in three phases. First, DNA samples need to be collected and catalogued. This will prevent duplication and allow us to keep on budget. Once the samples are received, we will ship them to the DNA service provider, GeneSeek, to obtain the 50k genotypes (i.e., 54,000 genotypes/ animal). Last, Drs. Dorian Garrick (Iowa State University) and Milt Thomas (Colorado State University) will coordinate genetic prediction research using the 50k profiles. Any resulting capabilities will then be incorporated into our National Cattle Evaluation by the University of Georgia.

THE MOST PROFITABLE CALF SHE’LL EVER PRODUCE …

Dr. Milt Thomas and coworkers conducted a pedigree analysis of the IBBA database and learned that there are 17 prominent families-clusters and the samples we have obtained do a good job of representing these families. However, we still need to gather 600 new samples to have enough data for the project. Please contribute DNA from any registered Brangus animal, bull or cow, that has a weaning weight EPD accuracy of 0.35 or greater. If you have herd sires or donor dams that will have this level of the accuracy in the near future, please also contribute them to the project.

Nothing is more usable in today’s market than a BRANGUS sired calf. Beef producers across the country are using Brangus to capture added heterosis, longevity, environPHQWDODGDSWDELOLW\DQGHIÀFLHQF\LQKHUHQWLQ these genetics. And, they get added pounds at weaning. Commercial BRANGUS females are widely known for their ability to adapt to any enviURQPHQWDQGEULQJDSURÀWPDNLQJFDOIWRWKH weaning pen.

The BRANGUS sired steer is very much in demand by stockers and feeders for less disease, faster gains and fewer days on feed. Brangus also have added yield grade and total accessibility to Angus branded product lines like CAB. International Brangus Breeders Association

Start of a New Year

N

ow that our annual convention in Houston is behind us, the start of a new and productive year for the International Brangus Breeders Association is upon us. The newly elected Board of Directors is seated and busy working hard to get our new committees in place. There is a lot of work ahead of us for the coming year. Many new items were presented during the initial committee meetings, and we continue to encourage our membership to present any new ideas or concerns they might have to our various committee chairpersons. Our Brangus show, even though not the largest in numbers, was one of the strongest in quality for both the bull and female divisions. We appreciate our members who make the commitment to showcase our Brangus cattle. I am confident we could not have pulled it off without the help of our International Junior Brangus Breeders. They are most definitely a group of committed, hardworking and talented young people. This classy bunch of young students gives us great hope for a bright future. The Global RoundUp was well attended this year with International guests from several different countries. If you were unable to attend this year’s event, please make plans to attend next year. It is certainly well worth your time. My hat goes off to the breeders that brought cattle to help support the roundup. My hope would be that you made contacts ¸

by R.L. ROBBS IBBA PRESIDENT and sales that will be of benefit in the future. Based on the interest and participation that was shown, it is very evident International trade is a bright spot in our IBBA future. In regards to our remarkable staff, it amazes me how they are able to pull it off, from having all the information packets ready for each meeting to having the booth and materials ready in the barn for the show. They also prepared our booths in the International Committee room and had all of the set-up ready for the Global RoundUp luncheon and cattle presentation. My sincere appreciation goes out to our staff that makes this convention happen. A tremendous amount of work was accomplished in a very short time. They are to be commended for all of their hard work! Even though I have been around for about 100 years and have many friends in the breed, I look forward to meeting as many members as I can in this coming year. Folks, there is a reason and a purpose for Brangus Cattle. Let’s give them a chance. BJ RL Robbs

he IJBBA Board of Directors has been especially busy the past couple months. From traveling to fundraising, our directors have been across the nation to various activities. Here is a brief rundown of some of what we have been up to. Early in February the Board of Directors and some of the advisors traveled to Nashville, Tenn., for the Youth Beef Industry Council (YBIC). It was not only a great educational event, but we were also able to meet other young beef industry leaders from other breed and state cattle associations. It was neat to hear everyone’s thoughts on the future and to learn more about the other breeds and how they handle different things such as fundraising and their National Junior Show. We were part of the first group of YBIC participants to ever attend YBIC Convention in conjunction with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s (NCBA) Annual Convention and Trade Show. This unique opportunity gave us a chance to network not only with the other youth leaders at YBIC, but also with industry leaders that were present at NCBA. March saw the Board of Directors travel to Houston for the International Brangus Show, the IBBA Convention and committee meetings, and the IJBBA board meeting. All members of the IJBBA Board of Directors had a non-voting position on one of the IBBA committees. It is a great opportunity for us to learn more about our parent association and how our association is run. The highlight of the week for the Junior Association was selling the 2012 Foundation Female. She sold in the Genetic Edge Sale on Saturday night March 3, 2012, for a RECORD SETTING $30,350. This will definitely help with many of IJBBA’s financial needs in the upcoming year. She was purchased by the Foundation Female Buyer Group, who is listed in its entirety on a “ThankYou” ad in this issue of the Journal. We give a special “THANKS” to the following for their overwhelming contributions: Cox Excalibur Brangus for their generous heifer donation, The Branch Ranch for their purchase of multiple tickets to push us over our goal, Dr. Joe Massey and Hengst Brothers Brangus for donating

the heifer back to IJBBA, and to Marvel Farms for purchasing the heifer to take home. Our Houston Junior activities culminated with the Global Brangus Roundup. It was a great opportunity for us as junior members to meet with Brangus enthusiasts from other countries. It was also another opportunity for us to learn more about the breeders and ranches that brought cattle to the event. The Brangus community has been such a great support for the junior association. We express our sincere appreciation and will continue our part in promoting this great breed of ours.

Participants of the YBIC were also given the opportunity to attend the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s (NCBA) Trade Show. Participants spent several hours in the trade show looking over the newest inventions in the beef industry and networking with industry leaders. After hours, participants were treated to the Cowboy’s Night at the Grand Ole Opry where they were entertained by Charlie Pride, The Oakridge Boys and Josh Turner among a few others.

Brangus Breeders Recognized at Annual Convention

T

he International Brangus Breeders Association (IBBA) welcomed IBBA members, convention participants and more than 200 international guests to Houston February 29 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; March 3, 2012, for the IBBA Annual Convention held in conjunction with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Registered convention participants set agendas, shared ideas, discussed international cattle market trends and outlook, and made decisions regarding the future of the Brangus breed. During the convention banquet Friday, March 2, the IBBA recognized four influential industry members for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the Brangus breed. This year the Pioneer Award honored two influential members of the industry. The late Herb Murray was recognized for more than thirty-five years of dedication to the improvement of the Brangus breed. Murray married his wife, Mary, in 1952 and soon after served his country in the Monty Harry (middle) accepted Korean War. Upon his return, Murray the Pioneer Award on behalf of received his degree in civil engineering late Billy Harry and Herb Murfrom the University of Texas in 1956, ray of Texarkana, TX. and the couple had the first of their four children. Murray got his start in the cattle business when he established MTG Brangus in 1973 with 400 acres near Texarkana, Texas, where he grew up. With his valuable engineering knowledge and background, Murray supervised the construction of the IBBA headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, which the offices occupy today. Murray was elected to two three-year terms on the IBBA Board of Directors and served as President in 1990-1991. He was recognized by his peers in 1994 as the IBBA Breeder of the Year. The late Billy Harry was also recognized as a Pioneer Award recipient for his years of service to the advancement of the Brangus breed. The Sulphur Springs, Texas, native first bought five Brangus bred heifers in 1965 at the Texas Brangus Breeders Association (TBBA) sale to start his Brangus herd. Over the last 27 years, Harry has served his community, as well as the IBBA, in several leadership positions. He was elected to the Sulphur Springs city council and was later elected mayor. Harry was elected to three terms on the IBBA Board of Directors and was appointed President in 1980-1981. He was one of the first breeders to begin collecting data that enhanced Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) and was awarded the Brangus Breeder of the Year in 1983. Mike Doguet of Diamond D Ranch in Beaumont, Texas, was the recipient of the 2011 Breeder of the Year award. Mike and his wife, Lisa, got started in the cattle business in 1984 with a small Simbrah herd and 225 acres. After experiencing some trouble selling Simbrah bulls, Doguet switched his operation to breeding Brangus, which, according to Doguet, 12 | MARCH / APRIL 2012 BRANGUS JOURNAL

also proved to be a more efficient breed. They were satisfied with a breed that could survive in a wide range of environmental conditions from the dry South Texas heat to the more moist Gulf Coast regions. / WR 5  /LVD DQG 0LNH 'RJXHW RI â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means a lot to us to have Doguet Diamond D Ranch in Beaubeen selected by our peers to re- mont, TX, received the 2012 Breedceive this award,â&#x20AC;?

The 2011 Commercial Cattleman of the Year award was given to Chris Hardee. This fifth-generation producer can trace roots back to the 1850â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when his ancestors started breeding tough, rugged cattle in central Florida.

Hardee also served the IBBA on the Board of Directors and was appointed President in 1998-1999. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of these recipients are deserving of these awards and some have been recognized on a national level for their contributions to the Brangus breed,â&#x20AC;? said Frank Perry, Chairman of the Awards Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel honored to have these outstanding cattlemen as a part of our breed.â&#x20AC;?

BIF Annual Convention to Focus on Bos indicus Genetics

T

he 44th Beef Improvement Federation (BIF) Research Symposium and annual meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Houston on April 18-20, 2012. This year’s meeting is hosted by Texas A&M University AgriLife Extension Animal Science and the American Brahman Breeders Association (ABBA). The symposium’s focus is the impact of Bos indicus genetics in the U.S. On the evening of Wednesday, April 18, the symposium will hold an opening night reception, as well as have presentations on the influence of Bos indicus genetics in the global beef industry. The symposium will host a variety of events on Thursday, April 19 and Friday, April 20, including presentations on current beef issues, committee sessions to discuss current research, an educational event hosted by the American Breeds Coalition, and the Seedstock and Commercial Producer Award nominees will be announced.

Registration for the event is $185, but will increase to $285 after March 25. Rooms can be reserved at a rate of $119 per night. Those who choose to remain in Houston over the weekend have the choice of three optional bus tours to South Central and Gulf Coast ranches for an additional cost of $50. Texas A&M University AgriLife Extension Animal Science and the American Brahman Breeders Association are proud to co-host the 2012 Beef Improvement Federation Research Symposium and annual meeting. To register for the 2012 BIF meeting, go to agriliferegister.tamu.edu and enter Beef Improvement. For hotel information and to book a room call 1‐800‐627‐6461. For more information on the BIF, contact Joe C. Paschal at 361‐265‐9203, j‐paschal@tamu.edu, or Chris Shivers 713‐349‐0854, chivers@brahman.org.

respective herds. This listing (on page 40) shows those females that are most productive along with bulls that sire productive females. This listing is not possible without proper data reporting. While the Summit Cow List highlights individual cows, the data on the rest of your herd is what is truly valuable. Successful seedstock breeders must embrace the power of data and advanced methods such as THR. Our product as Brangus Breeders is genetics. If we do not supply our customers with the genetics to fit their production environment and net the most money, they will find it elsewhere. I am convinced that THR and the most accurately described seedstock are what will drive breed growth and adoption of Brangus genetics into the herds of our commercial customers for years to come. Are you focused on your product? Will you make the hard decisions necessary to carry our breed and your program into the future? Can you define your program? Here is this month’s challenge: Call me, email me or if you see me at a sale or industry event, tell me about your program. Who is your customer? What are your goals? What do you do well? What do you need to improve? I really want to know!

Accurate Information on Yearling Bulls is Important

T

he accuracy associated with EPDs increases as more information becomes available. Initially EPDs are derived from the average of animals’ parents (pedigree estimate). Once an animal has a record themselves, the accuracy of the EPD increases and continues to do so as the animal has recorded progeny. This can take a long time, and for some economically relevant traits (ERTs), it is not possible for animals to have a record themselves, or the record may occur very late in life (i.e. stayability). The benefit of DNA-tests lies in the fact that they can be done at birth and thus have the potential to increase the accuracy of genetic predictions on young animals. That being said, the magnitude of the benefit of this is determined by the genetic correlation between DNA test results and the trait of interest. Example: Assume a DNA test has a genetic correlation of 0.8 with the trait of interest. This would equate to a BIF accuracy of 0.40. For traits that are hard to measure or measured late in life this would be very beneficial. Seedstock producers could identify superior animals earlier in life and commercial producers who purchase unproven sires could reduce the risk associated with low accuracy values. However, if the genetic correlation between the molecular test and the trait of interest is low (0.1) then the value of using only the genetic test score for the purposes of selection is dramatically decreased, especially in the context of having available EPDs for the trait of interest. The greatest benefit in accuracy should come from the integration of DNA tests scores along with phenotypic records in the calculation of EPDs. What is the benefit of higher accuracy values on young sires? For the seedstock producer it enables the selection of truly superior animals earlier in life and potentially decreases the number of animals to place on test. It also allows seedstock producers to supply clientele with a product that has less risk of change associated with it. The benefit to commercial producers lies in the ability to buy yearling bulls with more certainty surrounding their EPDs. Example: Assume a commercial producer wants to purchase a calving ease bull for use on heifers. If a bull does not have a record of calving ease himself, the BIF accuracy might be 0.20. Assume that the possible change* associated with this accuracy level is 6 and that his published EPD for CED is +5 (breed average in this case). In this situation, we would be 68 percent confident that this bull’s “true” EPD for calving ease is between -1 and + 11 realizing that for calving ease a larger number is more desirable since it is interpreted as the percentage of unassisted births. However, if the accuracy were higher (0.5) this would mean a small possible change value (4) so we would then be 68 percent confident that his true EPD would be between +1 and +9. By increasing the accuracy we are increasing the correlation between the true and predicted value of a bull’s EPD. Consequently, as accuracy increases it becomes easier to identify truly superior (or inferior animals). Assume that two yearling bulls both have the same calving ease EPD of +5 with an accuracy of 0.2. From this we can be 95 percent con36 | MARCH / APRIL 2012 BRANGUS JOURNAL

by Matt SPANGLER UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA-LINCOLN

fident that the true EPD of both bulls is between -7 and + 17. There is value in being able to determine if one or both bulls is actually much worse than his yearling EPD would suggest. If these two bulls had accuracy values of 0.5, then we would have a better idea of their true genetic potential and could possibly eliminate the inferior animal. With the inclusion of additional information such as a marker panel, we might find out the predictions are very different with one bull having a -5 calving ease EPD and the other a +10. This is a difference of 15, or one bull would be likely to have 15 percent more assisted births than the other. The traits that will benefit the most from the addition of DNA information in genetic predictions are those that are lowly heritable, difficult or expensive to measure, measured late in life and those that are sex-specific. Combining phenotypic and molecular data, particularly for the categories listed above, can lead to faster genetic change. The factors that impact the rate of genetic change are the accuracy of selection, the genetic standard deviation, the selection intensity, and the generation interval. Generation interval is defined as the average parental age when the offspring are born. Typically this is six years of age in beef cattle. Genetic change per year can be derived by: Accuracy of Selection* Selection Intensity* Genetic Standard Deviation Generation Interval It is clear that if generation interval were to decrease, then the rate of genetic change would increase. For seedstock producers, the ability to use a yearling sire heavily due to increased confidence in his EPD could reduce generation interval and thus lead to faster genetic progress. The benefits of including molecular information in the calculation of EPDs for yearling bulls will depend on the marker panel itself. First, the panel must be independently validated and proven to be significantly associated (statistically) with the trait of interest. Secondly, the more genetic variation that is explained by the trait the larger the increase in accuracy. Marker panel results should be thought of as another phenotype that can be included in the genetic prediction as being correlated to the trait of interest. With this in mind, the addition of this new phenotype adds to the amount of information and consequently provides an increase in accuracy proportional to the amount of variation explained by the panel. There is also an advantage that is more challenging to quantify, marketing. Early adopters, those who have panel information sent to breed associations for inclusion in genetic evaluations, may have a competitive advantage over other seedstock producers who do not. This assumes that bull buyers are willing to pay more for yearling bulls with higher accuracy values.

The World of Genetic Marketing

“As one reviews carcass data sheets and scans them for useful information, the complexity of this business is what really stands out.” Which calf was the most profitable? Was it a calf with a carcass value of $211.48, carcass weight of 680 pounds and a total value of $1,438.06, or a calf with a carcass value of $185.48, carcass weight of 1,017 pounds and a total value of $1,886.33? Perhaps that statement is a little bold. However, to the typical cow-calf producer and the feedlot operator, to some extent, cattle marketing is challenging. The impact of those markets and the actual payout in relation to genetic plans is difficult to evaluate. However, markets work, and the free market is still the best available. The real complications on marketing involve cattle producers who are trying to produce for the market. Production decisions impact market timing and at the root of all cowherds, are genetics. The geneticist spends a lot of time evaluating traits that can be recorded directly or indirectly. The direct traits, such as weight or skeletal size, are easy to understand even if the calculation of expected progeny differences seems a bit distant at times. The indirect traits, such as milk production and disposition, are likewise included with some buffering. The new concepts involving DNA technology also are available and offer further refinement to the selection of breeding stock. With these tools, the breeder and cattle producer establish a cowherd. This cowherd then can be utilized to produce calves for a desired market. The desired market really is the discussion today. As one reviews carcass data sheets and scans them for useful information, the complexity of this business is what really stands out. For any given set of calves, regardless of where they came from, there is a market. That market will differentiate the positives and negatives on the rail but will not always coincide with the goals of the producer who raised the calves. In the process of marketing, cattle are evaluated for many criteria. As was noted earlier, some observations of a feeder calf, stocker, yearling or finished steer may directly relate to the anticipated value on the rail. However, most do not. Most traits give a perceived plus or minus response. Through the eyes of the buyer, the plus and minus responses are summed up to create a purchase offer. The base bid generally is a regional supply and demand offer. Occasionally, a particular offering of cattle may be outside the normal range of acceptable finished cattle, but the base bid still reflects supply and demand. The base bid is fairly predictable, at least in the short and midterm. The base bid is market dependent and generally does not reflect the merits of individual cattle but rather the merits of the entire pen. Of course, anyone buying the cattle will aggressively seek cattle that will hang more positives than negatives on the rail and will speculate with a higher bid if there are enough records to justify speculated rail performance. Once the base bid is established and accepted, the real carcass value slowly unfolds. For those who know their cattle, they will speculate on bringing more positives than negative additional value on the rail. For most cattle producers, this phase of the industry is passed by. Why? The market is complicated. Let’s review a typical offering. A recent set of steers offered by the Dickinson Research Extension Center had a choice yield grade 3 price of $205.48 per hundredweight of carcass on the rail. Therefore, those pro-

ducers who are shooting for choice yield grade 3 cattle have a base value. On that day, the choice/select spread was a discount of $7.64 for select carcasses. Beside the $7.64 discount for select cattle, the actual value of each carcass is dependent on other plus and minus factors. On the positive side, three additional market programs, quality grade prime and yield grade 1 and 2 all offered positive price adjustments. On the potential discount side, quality grade standard, utility, hard bone and no roll were all discounted. Other possible discounts included dark cutter, callus, damaged, stag, yield grades 4 and 5, carcass weight below 550 pounds or in excess of 999 pounds and 30 month or more carcass age. In this set of 24 carcasses, 15 carcasses had a carcass value per hundredweight equal to or more than the choice yield grade 3 value. The highest valued carcass per hundredweight came in at $211.48. However, the carcass also had the lowest total value at $1,438.06. In stark contrast, the carcass with the most discounted value ($185.48) was the fifth most valuable carcass in terms of total value at $1,886.33. Translating those numbers back to the feedlot and cow-calf producer needs some more thinking.
