Dear Cattlemen, Welcome to KW Cattle Company! It is my pleasure to invite you to our 5th annual Spring Production Sale on Tuesday, March 19th, 2019. The sale will start at high noon, feel free to join us early that morning for coffee and donuts so you can walk through the selection of Angus and Hereford Bulls. Following the bull sale we will offer a nice selection of fall bred and spring open replacement females from some of our very best customers. We believe you will find a variety of quality genetics to fit your herd. Year in and year out we strive to meet our customers’ needs. We are proud to offer a progressive selection of Hereford bulls from our partner Waggoner Cattle Company to complement our top end selection of Angus Bulls. We are offering leading genetics of both breeds to meet your outcross goals. We were blessed with an excellent summer grazing and were able to develop the bulls slowly on a 200 acre native grass pasture. They have been wintered on fescue traps with a high forage diet until the sale. At KW Cattle, our development program and cutting edge genetics are the combination to add value to your herd with Bulls Built to Last™. Last but not least, a shout out to the best customer base out there. The support our program has received in these short five years is truly humbling. We are honored that you put your trust in us.

American Angus Association Genomic Enhanced EPDs Genomic results are a way to enhance predictability of current selection tools, to achieve more accuracy on EPDs for younger animals, and to characterize genetics for traits where itʼ the trait, such as carcass traits in breeding stock or maternal traits in bulls. With the investment in genomic technolog this means that in addition to the pedigree, performance and progeny information that are used in the calculation and y, reporting of Angus EPDs, genomic test results have also been incorporated into the EPD. Genomic-enhanced EPDs (GE-EPDs) are important because they make use of the results from the DNA test in addition to all other sources of information to provide added accuracy and reliability to the animalʼs EPD. In fact, depending on the trait, GE-EPDs on unproven animals have the same amount of accuracy as if they had already sired 8-20 calves.

Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) is the prediction of how future progeny of each animal are expected to perform relative to the progeny of other animals listed in the database. EPDs are expressed in units of measure for the trait, plus or minus. Interim EPDs may appear on young animals when their performance has yet to be incorporated into the American Angus Association National Cattle Evaluation (NCE) procedures. This EPD will be proceeded by an “I”, and may or may not include the animalʼs own performance record for a particular trait, depending on its availability, appropriate contemporary grouping, or data edits needed for NCE. ACC: Accuracy is the reliability that can be placed on the EPD. An accuracy of close to 1.0 indicates higher reliability.

GROWTH

Calving Ease Direct (CED) is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births, with a higher value indicating greater calvi heifers. It predicts the average difference in ease with which a sireʼs calves will Birth Weight EPD (BW) expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sireʼs ability to transmit birth weight to his progeny compared to that of other sires. Weaning Weight EPD (WW) expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sireʼs ability to transmit weaning growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires. Residual Average Daily Gain (RADG) expressed in pounds per day, is a predictor of a sireʼs genetic ability for postweaning gain in future progeny compared to that of other sires, given a constant amount of feed consumed.

It is important ot note that genomics do not completely descibe the variation in the traits of interest. Phenotypic measures collected by Angus breeders, such as birth, weaning and yearling weights, ultrasound scan data, carcass data, etc., continue to be an important part in further development of improved genomic panels, not to mention an important component in EPD calculation. How Are Genomic Tests Reported? The results of genomic testing are provided in percentile rankings, based on a reference population of more than 87,000 tested Angus animals. Ranks range from 1 to 100 with lower numbers generally favored for the most traits (see chart). Some traits for which percent ranks are available are not yet included in GE-EPDs powered by HD50K. These include ranks for their bull customers, cattle feeders, and consumers. When making selection decisions for traits that have EPDs provided by the AAA, then the EPDs should be the selec tion tool of choice. The EPD and accuracy account for all sources of information available on the animal - pedigree, own record, weights/measures, and genomic results.

Traits measured by HD50K

Percent Rank Favorable

Yearling Weight EPD (YW) expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sireʼs ability to transmit yearling growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires. Yearling Height EPD (YH) is a predictor of a sireʼs ability to transmit yearling height, expressed in inches, to his progeny compared to that of other sires. Scrotal Circumference EPD (SC) expressed in centimeters, is a predictor of the difference in transmitting ability for scrotal size compared to that of other sires. Docility (DOC) is expressed as a difference in yearling cattle temperament, with a higher value indicating more favorable docility. It predicts the average difference of progeny from a sire in comparison with another sireʼs calves. In herds where temperamental problems are not an issue, this expected difference would not be realized.

MATERNAL

Heifer Pregnancy (HP) the heifer pregnancy EPDs are designed to characterize differences among sires in the Angus breed for daughterʼs heifer pregnancy. When comparing two sires based on their heifer pregnancy EPDs (reported in units of percentage), a higher EPD sire would be expected to have daughters with a greater probability or chance of becoming pregnant than a sire with a lower EPD.

Carcass Weight EPD (CW) expressed in pounds, is a predictor of the differences in hot carcass weight of a sires progeny compared to progeny of other sires. Marbling EPD (Marb) expressed as a fraction of the difference in USDA marbling score of a sireʼs progeny compared to progeny of other sires. Ribeye Area EPD (RE) expressed in square inches, is a predictor of the difference in ribeye area of a sireʼs progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

Fat Thickness EPD (Fat) expressed in inches, is a predictor of the differences in external fat thickness at the 12th rib (as measured between the 12th and 13th ribs) of a siresʼ progeny compared to progeny of other sires. Back Fit Thickness: Subcutaneous fat thickness between the 12th and 13th rib over the longissimus muscle is the most common measure of subcutaneous fat on a carcass. The BF thickness is directly related to the carcass yield grade. Most reports indicate the ultrasonic determination of BF is accurate to within 1 in. of the actual measure in >70% of the animals scanned. FAT EPD, expressed in inches, is a predictor of the difference in ultrasound fat thickness at the 12th rib of a sireʼs progeny compared to the progeny of other sires. It includes the weighted average of 60% of the rib fat measurement and 40% of the rump fat measurement. The most recent advance in ultrasound technology has been in computer-aided analysis of longitudinal images of the longissimus muscle to estimate intramuscular fat. Three quarters of the ultrasound measurements of intramuscular fat are within 1.5% of the actual fat value. The technology to measure marbling is still emerging. Nonetheless, direct measurement of BF or REA and current prediction models for %IMF via ultrasound are adequate to calculate reliable breeding values when large numbers of cattle ore scanned. It is likely that this method of collecting carcass information will quickly replace the traditional “kill data” collected on carcasses at slaughter plants.

$VALUE INDEXES

Weaned Calf Value ($W) an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for pre-weaning merit. $W includes both revenue and cost adjustments associated with differences in birth weight, weaning direct growth, maternal milk and mature cow size. Feedlot Value ($F) and index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for post-weaning merit compared to progeny of other sires. Grid Value ($G) an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for carcass grid merit compared to progeny of other sires.

Maternal Milk EPD (Milk) is a predictor of a sireʼs genetic merit for milk and mothering ability as expressed in his daughters compared to daughters of other sires. In other words, it is that part of a calfʼs weaning weight attributed to milk and mothering ability.

Quality Grade ($QG) $QG represents the quality grade segment of the economic advantage found in $G. $QG is intended for the specialized user wanting to place more emphasis on improving quality grade. The carcass marbling (Marb) EPD and ultrasound-derived percent intramuscular fat (%IMF) EPD contributes to $QG.

Mature Height EPD (MH) expressed in inches, is a predictor of the difference in mature height of daughters of a sire compared to the daughters of other sires.

KWCATTLE.COM 620.215.2830

CARCASS

Calving Ease Maternal (CEM) is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births with a higher value indicating greater calvin daughters. It predicts the average ease with which a sireʼs daughters will calve

Mature Weight EPD (MW) expressed in pounds, is a predictor of the difference in mature weight of daughters of a sire compared to the daughters of other sires.

6

Cow Energy Value ($EN) expressed in dollar savings per cow per year, assesses differences in cow energy requirements as an expected dollar savings difference in daughters of sires. A larger value is more favorable when comparing two animals (more dollars saved on feed energy expenses). Components for computing the cow $EN savings difference include lactation energy requirements and energy costs associated with differences in mature cow size.

Yield Grade ($YG) represents the yield grade segment of the economic advantage found in $G. $YG is intended for the specialized user wanting to place more emphasis on red meat yield. It provides a multi-trait approach to encompass ribeye, fat thickness and weight into an economic value for red meat yield. Beef Value ($B) an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for post-weaning and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires.

Understanding Hereford EPDs The American Hereford Association (AHA) currently produces expected progeny differences (EPDs) for 17 traits and calculates three profit indexes. AHA’s genetic evaluation makes use of a Marker Effects Model that allows the calculation of EPDs by incorporating the pedigree, phenotypic and genomic profile of an animal. Animals that have a genomic profile will be denoted with a GE-EPD logo. The current suite of Hereford EPDs and profit indexes includes: Calving Ease — Direct (CE) CE EPD is based on calving ease scores and birth weights and is measured on a percentage. CE EPD indicates the influence of the sire on calving ease in females calving at 2 years of age. For example, if sire A has a CE EPD of 6 and sire B has a CE EPD of -2, then you would expect on average, if comparably mated, sire A’s calves would have an 8 percent more likely chance of unassisted calving when compared to sire B’s calves. Birth Weight (BW) BW EPD is an indicator trait for calving ease and is measured in pounds. For example, if sire A has a BW EPD of 3.6 and sire B has a BW EPD of 0.6, then you would expect on average, if comparably mated, sire A’s calves would come 3 lb. heavier at birth when compared to sire B’s calves. Larger BW EPDs usually, but not always, indicate more calving difficulty. The figure in parentheses found after each EPD is an accuracy value or reliability of the EPD. Weaning Weight (WW) WW EPD is an estimate of pre-weaning growth that is measured in pounds. For example, if sire A has a WW EPD of 60 and sire B has a WW EPD of 40, then you would expect on average if comparably mated, sire A’s calves would weigh 20 lb. heavier at weaning when compared to sire B’s calves. Yearling Weight (YW) YW EPD is an estimate of post-weaning growth that is measured in pounds. For example, if sire A has a YW EPD of 100 and sire B has a YW EPD of 70, then you would expect on average if comparably mated, sire A’s calves would weigh 30 lb. heavier at a year of age when compared to sire B’s calves. Dry Matter Intake (DMI) The DMI EPD predicts the daily consumption of pounds of feed. For example, if sire A has a DMI EPD of 1.1 and sire B has a DMI EPD of 0.1, you would expect sire B’s progeny, if comparably mated, to consume on average 1 pound of feed less per day. Scrotal Circumference (SC) Measured in centimeters and adjusted to 365 days of age, SC EPD is the best estimate of fertility. It is related to the bull’s own semen quantity and quality, and is also associated with age at puberty of sons and daughters. Larger SC EPDs suggest younger age at puberty. Yearling sons of a sire with a 0.7 SC EPD should have yearling scrotal circumference measurements that average 0.7 centimeters (cm) larger than progeny by a bull with an EPD of 0.0 cm.

Sustained Cow Fertility The AHA’s new SCF EPD is a prediction of a cow’s ability to continue to calve from three years of age through 12 years of age, given she calved as a two-year-old. The EPD is expressed as a deviation in the proportion of the 10 possible calvings to 12 years old expressed as a probability. For example, the daughters of a bull with a 30 EPD would have the genetic potential to have one more calf by age 12 than the daughters from a bull with a 20 EPD. In other words, the daughters from the 30 EPD bull would have a 10% greater probability of having one more calf than the bull with a 20 EPD. This is equivalent to saying that the daughters are 10% more likely to remain in the herd to age 12. Maternal Milk (MM) The MM EPD of a sire’s daughters is expressed in pounds of calf weaned. It predicts the difference in average weaning weights of sires’ daughters’ progeny due to milking ability. Daughters of the sire with a +14 MM EPD should produce progeny with 205-day weights averaging 24 lb. more (as a result of greater milk production) than daughters of a bull with a MM EPD of -10 lb. (14 minus -10.0 = 24 lb.). This difference in weaning weight is due to total milk production during the entire lactation. Maternal Milk & Growth (M&G) The M&G EPD reflects what the sire is expected to transmit to his daughters for a combination of growth genetics through weaning and genetics for milking ability. It is an estimate of the daughter’s progeny weaning weight. A bull with a 29 lb. M&G EPD should sire daughters with progeny weaning weights averaging 19 lb. heavier than progeny of a bull’s daughters with a M&G EPD of 10 lb. (29 minus 10 = 19 lb.). It is equal to one-half the sire’s weaning weight EPD, plus all of his MM EPD. No accuracy is associated with this since it is simply a mathematical combination of two other EPDs. It is sometimes referred to as “total maternal” or “combined maternal.” Maternal Calving Ease (MCE) MCE EPD predicts how easily a sire’s daughters will calve at two years of age and is measured on a percentage. For example, if sire A has a MCE EPD of 7 and sire B has a CE EPD of -3, then you would expect on average if comparably mated, sire A’s daughters would calve with a 10% more likely chance of being unassisted when compared to sire B’s daughters. Mature Cow Weight (MCW) The MCW EPD was designed to help breeders select sires that will either increase or decrease mature size of cows in the herd. The trait was developed after years of cow weight data collection and the EPD relates directly to the maintenance requirements of a cow herd. For example, if sire A has a MCW EPD of 100 and sire B has an EPD of 85, then you would expect the females of sire A, if comparably mated, to be 15 lb. heavier at mature size. Udder suspension (UDDR) UDDR EPDs are reported on a 9 (very tight) to 1 (very pendulous) scoring scale. Differences in sire EPDs predict the difference expected in the sires’ daughters’ udder characteristics when managed in the

same environment. For example, if sire A has a UDDR EPD of 0.4, and sire B has a UDDR EPD of -0.1, the difference in the values is 0.5, or one-half of a score. If daughters of sires A and B are raised and managed in the same environment, you would expect half a score better udder suspension in daughters of sire A, compared to sire B. Teat size (TEAT) TEAT EPDs are reported on a 9 (very small) to 1 (very large, balloon shaped) scoring scale. Differences in sire EPDs predict the difference expected in the sires’ daughters’ udder characteristics when managed in the same environment. For example, if sire A has a teat size EPD of 0.4, and sire B has a teat size EPD of -0.1, the difference in the values is 0.5, or one-half of a score. If daughters of sires A and B are raised and managed in the same environment, you would expect half a score smaller teat size in daughters of sire A, compared to sire B. Carcass Weight (CW) CW EPD is a beneficial trait when considering the impact that pounds have relative to end product value. At the same age constant endpoint, sires with higher values for carcass weight will add more pounds of hot carcass weight compared to sires with lower values for carcass weight. For example, if sire A has a CW EPD of 84 and sire B has a CW EPD 64, then you would expect the progeny of sire A, if harvested at the same age constant endpoint, to have a 20-lb. advantage in terms of hot carcass weight. Rib Fat (FAT) The FAT EPD reflects differences in adjusted 365-day, 12th-rib fat thickness based on carcass measurements of harvested cattle. Sires with low, or negative FAT EPDs, are expected to produce leaner progeny than sires with higher EPDs. Ultrasound measures are also incorporated into this trait and have been shown to be highly correlated with the performance of slaughter progeny. All data is expressed on a carcass scale. Ribeye Area (REA) REA EPDs reflect differences in an adjusted 365-day ribeye area measurement based on carcass measurements of harvested cattle. Sires with relatively higher REA EPDs are expected to produce better- muscled and higher percentage yielding slaughter progeny than will sires with lower REA EPDs. Ultrasound measurements are also incorporated into this trait and have been shown to be highly correlated with the performance of slaughter progeny. All data is expressed on a carcass scale. Marbling (MARB) MARB EPDs reflect differences in an adjusted 365-day marbling score (intramuscular fat, [IMF]) based on carcass measurements of harvested cattle. Breeding cattle with higher MARB EPDs should produce slaughter progeny with a higher degree of IMF and therefore higher quality grades. Ultrasound measurements are also incorporated into this trait and have been shown to be highly correlated with the performance of slaughter progeny. All data is expressed on a carcass scale.

Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$) The BMI$ is a maternally focused index that is based on a production system that uses Hereford x Angus cross cows. Progeny of these cows are directed towards Certified Hereford Beef. This index has significant weight on Sustained Cow Fertility, which predicts fertility and longevity of females. There is a slightly positive weight on Weaning Weight, Mature Cow Weight and Milk which accounts for enough growth but ensures females do not increase inputs. There is some negative emphasis on Dry Matter Intake, but a positive weighting on Carcass Weight which is anticipated to provide profitability from finishing of non-replacement females and castrated males. Marbling and Rib-eye Area are also positively weighted to keep the harvested progeny successful for CHB. This index is geared to identify Hereford bulls that will be profitable when used in a rotational cross with mature commercial Angus cows. Brahman Influence Index (BII$) The BII$ is a maternally focused index that is based on a production system that uses Brahman x Hereford cross cows. Progeny of these cows are directed towards a commodity beef market since Certified Hereford Beef© does not accept Brahman influenced cattle. This index has significant weight on Sustained Cow Fertility, which predicts fertility and longevity of females. There is a slightly positive weight on Weaning Weight, Mature Cow Weight and Milk which accounts for enough growth but ensures females do not increase inputs. There is some negative emphasis on Dry Matter Intake, but a positive weighting on Carcass Weight which is anticipated to provide profitability in finishing non-replacement females and castrated males. Marbling and Rib-eye Area are also positively weighted to keep harvested progeny successful for a variety of commodity based programs. This index targets producers that use Hereford bulls on Brahman influenced cows. Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) CHB$ is a terminal sire index that is built on a production system where Hereford bulls are mated to mature commercial Angus cows and all progeny will be targeted for Certified Hereford Beef© after the finishing phase. This index has significant weight on Carcass Weight to ensure profit on the rail. As well there is a positive weighting for Average Daily Gain along with a negative weighting on Dry Matter Intake to ensure efficient pounds of growth in the finishing phase. Keep in mind, this production system takes advantage of complimentary breeding with the commercial Angus cow. Although Marbling is weighted positively in this index, a positive weighting for Rib-eye Area and a negative weighting for Back Fat are a greater priority in this index to allow for optimum end-product merit. This is the only index that has no emphasis on fertility. Remember that no replacement heifers are being retained.

The Power of Genomically Enhanced EPDs The American Hereford Association (AHA) has embraced the use of genomics into their genetic evaluation by launching a first of its kind single step analysis that utilizes the marker effects of specific traits. Likewise, AHA is directly estimating accuracy values rather than approximating. The direct estimation of accuracy results in a more conservative value but a more accurate value than previous methodologies. The AHA is producing the most reliable genetic evaluation that is supported by Whole Herd TPR™ and genomics, which will give prospective buyers added confidence in purchasing young and unproven animals. Buying animals that have a genomic profile incorporated into their Expected Progeny Difference (EPD) offers many advantages that allow for quicker breed and herd improvement. Below is a table showing the average increase in accuracy when buying a young animal with a Genomic Enhanced EPD (GE-EPD) versus an animal without a GE-EPD. Similarly, an effective progeny number increase is listed by trait that shows how many progeny equate to a genomic enhancement of a young animal (e.g. yearling). That’s right, buying a young animal that has been genotyped is like having 2-17 progeny, depending on the trait. The proof gained on young, non-parent animals, through a genomic enhancement is valuable and greatly mitigates the risk and allows for more directed selection. Each animal tested is recognized with the AHA GE-EPD logo.
