LIMOUSIN

SIRE DIRECTORY 2013


We have taken every precaution to ensure that all the information provided in this publication is correct. We have relied upon information provided by ICBF and Semen Providers. The information is as at September 2013. The Irish Limousin Cattle Society accepts no liability for errors or omissions, nor for the consequence of any actions taken on the basis of the information included in this sire catalogue.


Foreword Welcome to the 9th edition of the Irish Limousin Sire Catalogue. As you are aware we don’t publish a catalogue every year due to fluctuations in sires and sire stats. However, such is the demand from both pedigree and commercial users and with the new indexes now in place we have prepared this publication. It is our intention to also publish these sires on our web site www.irishlimousin.com which will give us the opportunity to revise the figures after each evaluation. In following with previous years and being ever conscious of Docility we would advise users to be mindful of this important trait. Also important is data reliability, because of this, data reliability for featured bulls is clearly noted. In addition, a prerequisite for inclusion in this publication is that semen is readily available from the featured bulls. Once again the continuing genetic base is widening as can be seen from the number of new sires entered in this edition. The Society is appreciative of all the semen companies, organisations and private owners who have advertised their Limousin bulls in this sire catalogue. Their support has made this publication possible, the Sire Catalogue is a very important part of Limousin breed development. I would like to wish all users of this catalogue a successful breeding season and to conclude I would like to thank all those who have contributed to this publication especially our Council, the Breeding Committee, Austin Finn and Paul Sykes. Kevin Bohan President Irish Limousin Cattle Society


Semen Royalty Sires Certain bulls when used for pedigree breeding incur a semen royalty charge. This fee is collected by the Limousin Society upon calf registration and paid to the sire owner. The Royalty Fee becomes due when a pedigree calf is born to that bull. Irish Limousin Society straws do not have any royalty fees. It is advisable to check with your AI provider as to whether or not a chosen sire will have a Royalty Fee, this fee is in addition to the semen cost.

Irish €uro Stars What are €uro Stars

€uro Stars are the current system used in Ireland to measure how a sires progeny will perform. It puts € and Star ratings on how progeny are predicted to perform. Take a sire with a Terminal Index of €100, 4 Stars and an index reliability of 30% ….What does that mean? In simple terms it means that the evaluation predicts with 30% probability that the offspring from this bull will return to the farmer €100 more that the average of the progeny of all beef bulls for beef and that he is in the top 20%. The star rating indicates where a bull ranks within breed or across breed, 4 star means he is in the top 20%. This system has been developed through ICBF for Irish farms and Irish farming systems. BLUPs are still available with figures for Muscle, Skeletal and Functionality predicting how progeny will score or look. BLUPs work around a mean of 100. In France and the UK, BLUP figures for a wide range of traits are still the preferred system for evaluating sires.

Development of the Maternal and Terminal Index

The €uro Stars started out as the SBV - a somewhat confusing composite figure that was trying to answer all questions in one single figure. The SBV was replaced by a Maternal and Terminal Index in August 2012. This followed an industry wide review with significant input from all interested parties including Breed Societies, Farmers, IFA, Teagasc, AI companies, and Bord Bia. The Terminal Index was to mirror the terminal appearance of the animal comprising beefing ability and calving ease. The Maternal or Replacement Index was more complicated trying to incorporate milk and fertility but at the same time have a sufficient beefing component. The aim being that bulls with a high maternal index would produce daughters that would provide a live calf each year, have enough milk to rear that calf, while at the same time be feed efficient and produce offspring with good beefing ability. These indexes rolled out in August 2012. At the same time ICBF were looking at the data feeding into the evaluations/indexes. Largely driven from the breed societies they were looking at calving traits, contemporary groups and foreign data. In addition upon release of the August indexes there was a lot of negative reaction over the new maternal index, there being a view that it was not maternal enough. Pressure mounted from some breeds, IFA, AI, and Teagasc quarters to increase the milk element and reduce the beefing element. Changes arising out of the above were incorporated into the December 2012 figures.

Maternal Milk Change

In the Maternal Index the milk weighting was increased by almost 4% at the expense of beef, in addition the milk value was pushed to its economic maximum (it assumes all 6


weanling weight gain was due to milk, and that all milk gave the same extra weight, and that this weight has a value of €3 per kg). This has resulted in non milky bulls taking a hit in the Maternal Index.

Calving Difficulty Change

The data used to measure calving difficulty was fundamentally changed, where before animal events data was the principal driver of this index other sources have now been given far greater prominence. These are: • Foreign data • An animals own muscle and skeletal scores • Weights • Animal events data is still included but much more event records are now required to influence the calving figure. This has resulted in a drop in the reliability figure for calving ease and high muscle bulls taking a drop in calving ease.

Maternal Calving Difficulty Change

In the past the most important factor taken into account in determining maternal calving difficulty was a bull’s direct calving figure. If a bull was hard calving it was assumed his daughter would be easy calving and vice a versa. This has been changed and the daughters figure must now stand on its own merits. This change has negatively impacted high muscle bulls particularly those with a double muscle gene.

More Data and Relevant Data Comparisons Changes

All available data is now being taking into the evaluations, including foreign, factory and mart weights, and farm weights. In the past much of this data was excluded. Also the comparison basis has changed, now only like is compared with like, e.g. for factory weights young bulls with young bulls or for scoring show animals with show animals. This has resulted in more traits, more evaluations and more data. There is now a vast matrix of data and traits feeding into the evaluations which makes it harder to identify a problem or why an index may have changed. Overall all the extra weights has pushed up the carcase weights for Limousin across the board but it is the relative change that counts, e.g. a bulls carcase weight figure may have gone up yet his index fallen if his rise was less than the breed average rise.

Contemporary Groups Change

Scoring and weight data from animals where a contemporary group could not be made up was excluded from the evaluations in the past, this is no longer the case, all this data is now feeding into the evaluations. Scoring and weight data from manipulated contemporary groups was included as supplied in the past, this is no longer the case, like is now compared with like. 7


Current â‚Źuro Stars

The December 2012 Indexes reflected all the above changes, resulting in significant movements for some bulls. For most these movements make sense and are logical given the changes. The May 2013 and August 2013 runs are showing more stability, this coupled with improved data collection and genomics should lead to greater accuracy and data reliability into the future. The Maternal index has been renamed a Replacement Index and attempts are being made to split its value between pure cow and progeny traits. The Terminal Beef Index is made up as follows: Trait

Data Basis

%

Calving Ease

Foreign Data, Animal Events, Ancestry, Suckler Welfare Scheme, Calf weights, Scoring Data, Live weights, Carcase weights and confirmation

The Terminal Index should reflect the terminal appearance of an animal. The top ranking terminal animals should be relatively easy calving and produce docile feed efficient progeny with good beefing ability and weight for age.

The aim is to produce daughters that will provide a live calf each year, and have enough milk to rear that calf while at the same time be feed efficient and produce offspring with beefing ability. Making a decision When evaluating a sire look at the overall picture, paying particular attention to data reliability, then determine which traits are driving the index (what are his strong or weak traits) and compare this to what you are looking for. Never take any trait in isolation, look at the overall picture including data reliability and pedigree. Establish where the figures are coming from and what is driving the index. Inspect the animal or its progeny, and determine suitability for your cow(s) or cow type. Decide upon what type of calf you want.

Note: Although all these bulls have been used for pedigree breeding in the recent past semen may not be available for some or semen use may be restricted. Also it may not be a complete list as bulls are removed and added all the time. This list also includes test bulls with very low data reliability as at time of printing.

This planner is a guide and must be adjusted for repeats and actual calving date. Gestation is based on the breed average of 287 days. It is important that Animal Events is fully and accurately filled out for both pedigree and commercial calves. Scoring of calves should take place between 250 and 350 days old. 102


Limousin Genetics

Delivering tomorrow’s food demand

Readers can rest assured that Limousin genetics will provide the tools to deliver Food Harvest 2020. Farming and food represent Ireland’s largest indigenous industry with a significant economic contribution to the country. Food Harvest 2020 strives to further this contribution by increasing output and adding to exports. The Food Harvest 2020 vision is efficient, environmentally sustainable production growth. The key is efficiency and environmental sustainability. Global food demand continues to grow while at the same time the two most basic resources for food production, land and water, are in decline. Within Ireland the area of land available to farming will naturally decline due to housing, infrastructure, forestry, amenities, etc. The inclement weather of 2011-13 has proven that pushing stocking rate to a limit is counter productive. Grass is our most sustainable and efficient natural resource. It must represent the core component of our beef and dairy output, with grain as a supplement (not the other way around). 103


Limousin Genetics

Delivering tomorrow’s food demand (Continued) To achieve sustainable and efficient growth in beef production, it must be grass based and will only be delivered through genetic progress. This progress must focus on the most feed efficient easy care animals that will deliver carcase quality and kill out, all strong Limousin traits. Pushing numbers and stocking rates is not the sustainable way forward, more must be got out of each unit, i.e. • Earlier and easier finishing • More weight and quality for age • Lower losses and mortality • Improved fertility. To achieve these goals we must use the best genetics and the best balanced beef breeds. The beef output from a 50-unit suckler herd or 100 unit dairy herd will increase many fold, without any increase in stocking rates or extra feeding, by implementing a “Best for Beef” breeding program. Any Best for Beef program must include the following key targets: • Easy calving • Short gestation • Low calf mortality (pre, at and post birth) • Cows quickly back in calf (a calf per cow per year) • Good calf growth • Healthy, functionally sound cattle • Good feed efficiency (good converters) • Quality • Easy finish, high meat yield cattle • In spec cattle and carcases sought after by the market. Limousin is the balanced beef breed ticking all the boxes, having Limousin in the breeding mix immediately results in a more suitable type of animal. The Irish Limousin Cattle Society and Limousin Breeders have always been to the fore in genetic advancement, using the best genetics to positively benefit the breed. Efforts to find and evaluate promising new sires are ongoing. The latest scientific aid in the process is genomics and Limousin is to the fore of genomic advances in this country.

“Limousin for Genetic Excellence and Commercial Advantage”. 104


Strong showing by Limousin in latest figures from ICBF Breed percentile data generated by ICBF in August 2013 yet again shows Limousin in a strong position. The breeds characteristics and the expertise of our breeders is continuing to deliver profit for Limousin users. Based on new pedigree animals (births 2008 to 2013 inclusive), the ICBF € profit return average of all beef breeds as measured by the Terminal and Maternal indices continues to rise as detailed in the table below are the current € profit returns.

These figures are breed averages, within all breeds there will be animals and blood lines above and below average. Highlights of the Aug 2013 ICBF figures include: Limousin tops all main beef breeds for combined terminal and maternal € profit. Limousin Calving Difficulty less than 5%. Limousin delivering high carcase weights for age and excellent conformation. Limousin mortality is very low. Limousin cattle showing high Linear Scores (Muscle, Skeletal, Functionality).

Breeding for Maternal Traits

In order to maintain balance it is always important to consider maternal traits particularly within pedigree herds. Criteria for maternal selection include milk, fertility, docility, diversity of pedigree and sufficient beefing ability. Sires that have been identified with maternal potential (but not all proven) include: • Bavardage • Broomfield Regentcey • Tastevin • Castleview Casino • Patocle • Ampertaine Commander • On Dit

Also Ronick Hawk cows and other milky dam lines should be considered for maternal breeding.

Sires for the Dairy Market

The Dairy market is looking for sires that will deliver Easy Calving, Short Gestation, and an ability to deliver Shape. Two new sires currently being looked at in this regard are Chaumeil and Broomfield Regentcey. 105


What do Limousin users and Cattle experts say ? “I switched to Limousin because I wanted easy calving and better quality stores” Pat, a dairy farmer from Limerick. “I am delighted with my Limousin Bull, he has terrific temperament and his calves are up and suckling so quick” Charles, a suckler farmer from Galway who purchased his first Limousin bull at a society sale in 2011. “In terms of producing in spec cattle for slaughter and achieving high prices there is no breed to match Limousin, they just have the quality, the feed efficiency, and ease of finishing” Willie, a specialised beef finisher from Tipperary. “I changed to Limousin for easier calving and more fancy weanlings” Mike, who is farming for over 60 years. “I chose Limousin in order to have quality combined with an easy care system” Pat, a part time suckler farmer in Wexford. “When choosing a sire or cow, having Limousin in the mix results in a better type animal in the sales ring” John, a live exporter and suckler farmer from Roscommon. “Limousin crosses perform best to weaning and continued to perform best to slaughter.” Teagasc Grange 106


“Limousin docility continues to improve, 60% improvement in docility in last ten years.” ICBF “The overall light boned nature of Limousin gives rise to excellent meat yields and the well balanced carcass gives more high value cuts. The lean and white fat nature of Limousin also enhances the sale value of the meat.” Ashbourne Meat Processors. “Researchers have identified a gene F94L which increases both the weight of prime cuts and overall meat yield. F94L is highly prevalent in Limousin and almost unique to the breed. F94L termed the “profit gene” does not give rise to any loss in function or result in any extreme effects nor has it any deleterious effect on birth weight and calving difficulty.” Adelaide University and University of Queensland. “Limousin cattle were the most efficient and fastest of all breeds at converting feed into saleable meats.” USMARC. “Feed accounts for 80% of the variable costs in beef production, feed efficiency research is important from both an economic and environmental perspective. The Feed Efficiency trait is heritable, Limousin cattle have proven consistently to be tops for Feed Efficiency in trials.” Teagasc Grange and ICBF Tully. “95% of survey respondents said they would maintain or increase the proportion of Limousin in their herd.” Irish Limousin Survey. 107
