The Red Angus breed has continued is unprecedented growth for a variety of reasons: exceptional carcass merit and opportunity for premiums at harvest, accuracy of EPDs, and adding value to commercial cross breeding systems. However, we feel the most important reason to be using Red Angus genetics is the momma cow. Her ability to calve easy, keep her flesh, breed back in a timely manner, and then still push the scales at weaning time is what has solidified the breed’s place in second amongst all others in America.


Our first and highest priority when making selection decisions is on the female. If we didn’t feel that these bulls’daughters could work in any part of the country, they would not be on offer. It is the cow family behind the bull that separates the average from the best. We have continued to build a breeding program based around some of the most proven maternal genetics that North America has to offer.


I would like to point out that many of bulls in the offering are embryo transfer calves. I have identified those in the footnotes. Please keep in mind that the actual BWs on those individuals are not indicative of their true genetics, and more indicative of their recipient mother’s birthweight tendencies. Also, the Red Angus EPDs have been modified slightly since last year. The EPDs themselves have not changed, just the breed averages for a handful of traits. Because of this, it is continually important to measure a bull’s value based on the percentile ranking of whichever EPD is being evaluated.
