DEDICATED SERVICE. PROVEN SUCCESS.

DEDICATED SERVICE.

Select Sires Beef Specialist Tim Olson of St. Onge, South Dakota took some time to tell us about the Estrus Syncronization and the A.I. work he and his team do for ranchers in his sales area. Tim’s team covers thousands of beef females each year with the utmost professionalism you can expect from Select Sires. Their DEDICATED SERVICE and PROVEN SUCCESS is well respected and defines the Select Sires brand promise, YOUR SUCCESS, OUR PASSION.

Tim Olson

Beef Specialist Select Sires MidAmerica

When you started your custom estrus synchronization and A.I. service, what inspired your customers to try this new technology? Consistent Calving Ease, Uniformity , Females. Most of our customers began their experience with A.I. in order to decrease the amount of dystocia and death loss while calving first-calf heifers. In addition to these benefits, they quickly realized the improved consistency and uniformity of their calf crops, and an overall increase in weight due purely to the age of calf. Genetic improvement came along shortly after proving an easy and quick way to select for consistent traits of importance to that producer, such as disposition, udder quality, carcass quality, altitude tolerance, etc. So the cattle turned out to be herd builders, great! What additional benefits come out of your breeding projects? Labor Management. Synchronization and A.I. helps our customers manage the labor and facilities needed during a relatively condensed calving season. Many of our customers will have more than 50% of their calves born in a two week window, and 80% born in three weeks. This helps them prepare facilities and personnel and make improvements where needed. Reproductive Improvements. When a producer incorporates a Total Herd Synchronization and A.I. program, they will shorten their calving season considerably and increase their calf age at the same time. In the herds we have worked with for several consecutive years, we have actually moved their calving dates later, calved for a shorter period of time, and have increased their calf weaning weights. The BONUS is, we have built their cowherd with the traits they desire. Let’s get to the mechanics of your service. What estrus synchronization protocols are most used in your area? Synchronization Protocols. The Synch Protocols that we use the most in our area are: 14 Day CIDR-PG & TAI, Select Synch + CIDR & TAI in heifers and the Select Synch & TAI in cows. These protocols involve some amount of heat detection followed by Timed A.I. depending on the estrus response of the group. We incorporate heat detection in most groups because it allows us flexibility to manage labor and adjust the program if needed. If a Fixed Timed A.I. program is the only option, we can modify any of these programs to do so. It is important to understand that ALL Synchronization Protocols work!.....if the cattle are ready, and the steps are followed correctly. We are fortunate to have all of the Standardized Synch Protocols that the Reproductive Task Force has outlined in all A.I. Sire Directories. It allows us to recommend the Synch Protocol that fits the customer’s management practices and expectations the best. Manage the VARIABLES. If the Customer and the Service Representative, like myself, work together to align expectations, discuss the logistics, evaluate the cattle, and manage the variables the best they can, you will have favorable results.


PROVEN SUCCESS.

As a cooperative, Select Sires focuses not only on genetic improvement and superior fertility, but more importantly, how to create pregnancies for our customer-owners. Select Sires has long been admired for the most skillfully trained, professional service team in the A.I. business. While others boast of their service component, there is no other A.I. stud that is more experienced and committed to your success than Select Sires. In addition to our dedicated people, Select Sires continues to reign supreme compared to our competitors for semen quality and fertility. The experience of artificially breeding your own cows can be intimidating. There is a solution-- contact Select Sires for their talented labor force and objectively selected sires to improve your beef business.

Tim Olson and his crew put me at ease. I used to breed the cattle myself, but now I rely on Select Sires. Using their services, we have taken a job that was once really stressful and made it a fun project! We now get to use the best bulls in the world, instead of nice local bulls and it’s much cheaper. - John Rittberger, SD

Jerald Raymond is great. He comes to our ranch, looks at all our cattle, and knows our goals and needs to make the cattle better. Other A.I. companies want to sell semen but don’t offer great service. Select Sires’ service and knowledge that they bring to us is what makes them great! This easily separates them from the competition. They are very efficient and do a great job. Jerald and his A.I. crew are outstanding; that’s what makes Select Sires so successful. They want to see us succeed. - Jordan Willis, WY

Sired by the ‘original’ Consensus and out of a moderate, big-bodied Objective, FORTRESS writes a distinct high performance offering with a minimum of Birth Weight. His early progeny-test calves in a structured sire evaluation won the contest as the lowest at Birth and the highest at Weaning, propelling him to a position as the top bull for $W in the Angus database. Siring consistent, strong calves of both sexes, expect good-looking, ample-ribbed calves who hit the ground growing and fill out fast.

‘ Targeting Quality Beef -- for Today

T

. . . and Tomorrow ’

he year 2015 will go down as a transition year in the beef business. Bull prices set records for much of the year, but prices for feeder calves, fed cattle and bred heifers have steadily declined from the late 2014 record highs as the cow herd grew and Justin Sexten Director, Supply Development carcass weights increased. Certified Angus Beef LLC Few of us target below average quality cattle, and just keeping up with average is a challenge with genetics advancing rapidly. Today’s average cattle are grading 69% Choice and 5% Prime, whereas in 2010, 61.5% graded Choice and just a decade ago average cattle were grading 52.9% Choice with less than 3% Prime. Sire selection with a focus beyond the ranch gate insures future marketing options are available to maintain profitability. As the cow herd grows, the increase in cattle supplies will allow for greater market differentiation on genetic merit. As quality improves along with the growing headcount, some say the price premiums and demand for high-quality beef will diminish. Research from the University of Missouri suggests the premiums for Prime and Certified Angus Beef® are less influenced by increased supply than Select product. Additionally competing proteins such as pork and poultry pose a greater temptation to consumers buying Select as prices decline. Consumer demand for high-quality product continues to grow as demonstrated by the eleventh straight year of increased Certified Angus Beef® brand sales. Whether you sell calves at weaning, as a yearling off grass, through a retained ownership program or as a bred replacement heifer, those cattle play a role in supplying beef to the consumer. Genetic improvement with a high-quality focus is the best production and market insurance product available for the long term. Genetic improvement may be slow and sometimes incrementally small, but there are few other investments that can positively influence the entire operation for generations. Many producers ask what impact selection for end-product merit will have on their cow herd. The Certified Angus Beef® brand sponsored research by Virginia Tech animal scientists Jason Smith and Scott Greiner to address that question. They reported selection for above-average Marbling and maternal traits can lead to both existing in the same herd. Some folks point out known genetic relationships to justify a fear of maintaining selection for at least average Marbling. Marbling can be antagonistic to muscling and carcass weight, for example. That’s true of course, but lighter birth weight and calving ease can also be antagonistic to weaning and yearling growth traits. In each case, focused selection has overcome natural antagonisms. Select Sires makes it simple to identify sires that include the end-product focus needed to sustain consumer demand for beef. Just look for the “Targeting the Brand” logo. These sires offer genetics to produce calves capable of supplying the growing demand for premium beef. Select Sires has put together a great collection of sires to help you develop a herd that will continue to raise the average in your herd for years to come.

Extremely sound, good-footed and mid-sized for frame, SUNRISE offspring possess way more shape and middle than his pedigree suggests. His daughters in production are super brood matrons designed to be solid maternal contributors. This elite sire is backed by genuine carcass data and excels for both MARB and RE EPDs. A brighter future is out there for those who study the data—take a look at what SUNRISE can offer you. From Gardiner Angus Ranch, Randy Bayne and Sellard Farms, KS Daughter, Pine View Angus, IA

As progeny records come in....his data gets better REMEDY is a sure-fire outcross Calving Ease bull with exceptional feet and leg structure His calves exhibit extra eye appeal and are straight lined, level hipped and nice fronted Use to create broody replacement females with exceptional foot integrity and outstanding fleshing ability Appropriately named, Remedy fixes a lot of problems

Calving Ease with stayability defines many difference-makers in the Angus breed—that said, REMEDY is on his way to making history. Initially selected as a top test-station performer with a stellar pedigree, REMEDY has truly gotten better with age. With additional progeny records, his CED and Birth Weight have both improved, while at the same time, his figures for growth have taken a positive jump as well. Heifer-safe at +14 CED and -3.3 BW, he sires extra base and middle in calves that are eye-pleasing and sound. His outcross, maternally-strong pedigree and near ideal foot structure are just two great reasons to use him—REMEDY offers plenty more.

The key is to use elite growth and carcass merit Angus and Red Angus sires, like INGENUITY, PROGRESS, PRIME PREMIER (Angus) and HERITAGE (Red Angus) from Select Sires. These bulls are off the charts for traits that beef buyers really care about! Cattle feeders increasing understand that well-designed Hogus are worth $100 to $150 more per head than a day-old Hostein bull calf. They see extra value in Hogus that are sired by Angus bulls having documented genetics for (1) exceptional growth, (2) superior Marbling, and (3) above-average muscling. These traits matter a great deal to a cattle feeder’s bottom line, which is why they recognize that all Hogus are not created equal. Genetically superior Hogus are truly worth more! The American Angus Association has a bio-economic index for growth and carcass merit called $BEEF ($B). Bulls that rank at the top of the breed for $B will consistently sire the kind of Hogus that cattle growers and feeders really want, and the kind they will pay premium prices to own. In the Red Angus breed, the GRIDMASTER index (GM) likewise enables top growth and carcass sires to be readily identified.

Select Sires recently introduced the Breeding to FeedingSM program which offers great potential to maximize profits for dairy producers by providing them with the option of choosing which genetic outcome will be most profitable with each pregnancy generated and the opportunity to receive consistent premiums for marketing dairy-beef crossbred calves.The Breeding to Feeding program is a partnership with Wulf Cattle that focuses on the use of specially qualified Limousin and Lim-Flex sires that are stacked for growth and carcass merit to create valuable terminal ‘beef-builder’ dairy/beef crossbred calves. qq Wulf Cattle is offering a buy-back contract on calves resulting from the Breeding to Feeding program. qq The buy-back premium provides dairy producers with an opportunity for lucrative premiums over straight-bred Holstein and Jersey bull calves. The buy-back calf premiums are available now in major dairy population areas and will continue to expand as more areas of the country utilize Wulf Cattle genetics in their dairy operations. qq Wulf Cattle has been raising Limousin and buying back Limousin-influenced feeder calves for more than 30 years. The value of muscle and feed efficiency Limousin brings to a terminal cross with Holstein and Jersey cattle is unmatched. qq Since the first successful trial in 2010 with neighboring Riverview Dairy, Wulf Limousin and Lim-Flex genetics have proven again and again to deliver high quality results, giving the dairyman a new tool to add value to the herd while delivering to the packer consistent, repeatable results. qq Wulf Cattle has focused on genetically improving modern beef production through best management practices, technology and sound science since 1955. Wulf Cattle divisions include registered Limousin, Lim-Flex and Angus Seedstock, stocker and feed yards in Minnesota, South Dakota and Nebraska. Wulf Cattle is based in west-central Minnesota. qq Wulf Cattle has developed direct supplier relationships with major beef processors, such as Tyson Foods and Laura’s Lean Beef to connect premiums for natural and antibiotic-free feeder cattle to the market and assure their suppliers of carcass quality and consistency. Breeding to Feeding is a sustainable, resource management program to produce a value-added feeder calf for a depleted national supply chain by tapping into the dairy industry. Breeding to Feeding is a win-win for both the dairy producer and Wulf Cattle. With the improvement in reproductive efficiency and the adoption of new technologies, such as gender SELECTed™ semen, dairy producers now have the opportunity to generate sufficient dairy replacements and utilize a planned beef cross system on their less productive cows to create added-value calves for the beef industry. This winwin innovative program enables Wulf Cattle to create and manage a supply of value-added, genetically designed feeder cattle while giving the dairy producer a premium market for his dairy-beef crossbred calves. For its innovation and potential impact on the dairy industry, the Breeding to Feeding program was a winner of the Dairy Herd Management Innovation Awards in 2013.

Breeding to Feeding Advantages

Add value to dairy bull calves With the Breeding to Feeding buy-back program, dairies are assured a consistent market and premium price for Limousin-sired calves from Jersey, Holstein or crossbred dairy cows. Wulf Cattle is committed to partner with dairies for the long-term and produce a quality meat product. Create a better herd Dairy herd genetics, performance and profits will increase with a planned strategy to create future replacements from genetically-superior heifers and cows, while breeding lower-end, less profitable cows to Wulf Limousin semen. Select Sires consultants have extensive experience in building a variety of breeding strategies to maximize genetic and reproductive results.

Real-world conception and calving ease In an analysis of the annual conception rate (CR) by semen type at Riverview Dairy, Wulf Limousin semen averaged a 49 percent CR on Jersey cows. This compares to the 43 percent CR with dairy sexed semen. Calving ease data has also been calculated at Riverview Dairy; more than 2,600 LimousinJersey calves have been born averaging 79.6 pounds at birth with 98.8 percent unassisted births. Increased feed conversion, pounds red meat and dressing percent The Limousin cross adds muscle and feed efficiency to the high Marbling from Jerseys and Holsteins. The Limousin breed also leads the industry for feed efficiency, meaning less feed cost for pounds gained. Furthermore, Limousin genetics increase yield grades and ribeye areas over straight dairy carcasses, increasing payback at market. Of the seven most common beef breeds in the U.S., Limousin ranks No. 1 in dressing percent.* *As tested at Meat Animal Research Center, Clay Center, NE, Germplasm Evaluation Progress Report No. 2

Here’s How it Works 1. Together with a Select Sires sales consultant, develop a breeding strategy that includes Wulf Limousin semen produced and processed in Select Sires facilities and held to the highest quality standards. 2. Select Sires delivers the Wulf Limousin semen and the designated dairy cows are inseminated with Wulf Limousin semen hand-picked specifically for use in dairy herds. All chosen bulls are homozygous black and homozygous polled with superior genetics to produce efficient feeder calves yielding a valuable carcass. 3. Calves are born on the dairy where newborn care is key to calf performance and vigor. Our calf care protocol is pretty simple; treat them like your replacement heifers. 4. Through a convenient, routine system Wulf-sired calves are transported to participating calf ranches in the region. 5. The resulting crossbred bull and heifer calves are purchased by Wulf Cattle. The dairy receives a premium based on current Holstein bull calf market prices. The end result is added income for the dairy and consistent, quality Limousin-influenced feeder calves to move into the meat supply. In Breeding to Feeding, it’s the cooperative effort and genetics proven for feed efficiency and growth that add value for the dairy producer.

Allied and Select Sires:

RETURNING LONG TERM PROFITS

OUR BEST PLANS FOR TODAY The relationship between Select Sires and Allied Genetic Resources is now nearly two years old and we couldn’t be more excited about the program and the great partners at Select. Allied has worked hard to bolster the selection of SimAngus and Simmental bulls available through Select Sires to include options with specific purpose and futuristic genetic value. When Marty Ropp you choose to utilize AI technology Allied Genetic Resources you deserve to get exactly what you want, calving ease, growth, carcass, maternal prowess, profit or some of everything and Select Sires is working every day to make sure that is a reality. The reputation of Select Sires and its experienced staff of “at the ranch” service providers is the key. Our job at Allied is to help provide Select with high value, low risk genetics that help make their clients happy and also continue to improve the value and reputation of today’s updated SimAngus and Simmental genetics. We hope when you evaluate the industry leading sire options available at Select you will find great choices regardless of the specific purposes you have in mind. As an added value piece there are specific sires listed that offer as much sleep all night calving ease as any bulls in the beef business and they bring the power and profitability of heterosis with them. Commercial genetics that offer progress and profit are what we specialize in at Allied. We are absolutely not a breed association, but rely heavily on the technology and great genetic evaluation services they provide. There too is big news on that front! Make sure you keep your eyes open this summer for the new “Quantum Leap” genetic evaluation coming from IGS. It is positioned to be the single greatest upgrade in genetic improvement technology since the creation of EPDs. Allied is a group of forward thinking and high reputation seedstock producers who focus almost entirely on the success of their commercial customers as well as the many segments of the beef business that depend on strategic genetic improvement to accomplish goals and generate greater profitability. Now with more than 20,000 seedstock females represented in the population, the potential to set and then reach genetic goals increases each year. We shoot straight at the target of providing improved genetics focused squarely where they should be, on no-nonsense beef industry success regardless of the link of the chain. The rest of the Allied story is centered around service. Each of the Allied member/owners is committed to assisting customers in any way possible to help insure success and retain their genetics business for the long term. Targeted breeding

decisions, sincere data collection, proper bull development, service after the sale and customer satisfaction warrantee are all non-negotiable services provided by each and every Allied seedstock producer. Allied’s primary responsibility is to be part of and bolster those customer programs and to provide additional service options for the large group of commercial clients that are so important to the Allied herds. Options for consulting, commercial marketing, seedstock procurement, strategic planning and other services are all part of our core value proposition at Allied, again all based around recruiting and retaining the long term genetics business of the very best in commercial cow calf customers. PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE It is always fun to talk or write about the future, partially because of the positive liberties one can take in prognostication. The serious side however, is that the beef genetics business is absolutely dependent on a long term plan for the future. The genetics you select this spring 2016 could still be a big part of your cow herd in 2026 and if you use those genetics for 5 years, make that 2031 and beyond. The bottom line is that there is absolutely no short term in beef cattle genetics. How then might we smartly plan to deal with the uncertainty of this business and even this world over the next 15-20 years? Making educated, well thought out and wise breeding decisions today is really the only solid plan. When you consider the long term risks associated with making less than satisfactory genetic decisions, the gravity of the challenge becomes more evident. Who knows exactly what this industry, consumers, etc. will find dear in the 2030s? Big cattle, little cattle, fat cattle, skinny cattle, “pretty cattle”, “ugly cattle” there are plenty of unknowns. For the sake of argument, I do think it is possible to make some educated assumptions about genetic needs moving forward. A smart, risk reducing plan for the future; that is what we are all about to do this next season whether we think about it or not. Below are just a few of what I believe are the most evident genetic improvement areas looking 20 years down the road. We Sell Beef - The dollars this industry generates almost all come from consumers of beef and surely 20 years from now they still will. With an ever more discerning consumer, I find it illogical to believe we can make any type of plan for the future that does not involve making a better beef product. Exactly what that product needs to be is not a certainty, but I am going to wager our products need to be more pleasing to consumers and require less technology and human


intervention to make it exceptional. Surely, tenderness, flavor, juiciness and other palatability traits will not go out of favor as we plan to sell the premium priced meat products that it takes to justify the most expensive of the popular meats to produce. With that in mind, a genetic choice that ignores meat quality seems like a risky one to me. Costs of Production – Unless I miss my guess wildly, overall costs associated with the production of beef and most all food products will continue to trend in an upward fashion. Again, from the standpoint of making a good decision in 2016, it is certainly not wise to ignore the major variable costs traits that we can do something about genetically. You can decide exactly what that means to your program, but I think it is a given that costs of production are not likely to go down. Labor Challenges – This is also a cost of production, but it is one that may not be clearly addressed without considering it separately. There is no inexpensive help in this country to deal with issues like dystocia, milking out poor udders, treating inordinate numbers of sick calves or even dealing with dangerous disposition. If we expect the labor issue to change or expect producers who like myself are getting older to do more in 2031, I don’t think we are being realistic. Both direct and maternal calving ease, convenience traits, health, disposition and other traits affecting labor requirements would definitely be on my genetic improvement shopping list for the future.

Information Transfer – My best guess is that current trends of information transfer and increased accountability will continue which surely creates both opportunity and challenge. The cattle we produce in the future will most likely have our name and perhaps even our ownership attached to them much further down the chain than today. More system based approaches to making and marketing products will also be part of this business moving forward. Making improvements with those thoughts in mind just makes good, risk reducing sense. Heterosis – One thing that will absolutely not go away in the next 20 years is the value of the planned use of heterosis. $100-$200 more profit per cow per year is the simple tally. If you or your customers have a plan to be in the beef business 20 years from now that is a heck of a lot of net income to forgo ($100 x 300 cows x 20 years = $600,000). The great news is that hybrid vigor will still be working and generating value after those 20 years in the year 2036. Obviously there are many more factors and plans that will affect the way all of us make or will make genetic decisions this year and next. I just think considering the long term implications of our choices based on logical projections for the future can help us be better prepared for whatever this business has in store, and your friends at Select Sires are here to help.

EXPECTED PROGENY DIFFERENCES TERMINOLOGY

EXPECTED PROGENY DIFFERENCE (EPD) - The expected difference in performance of a bull’s progeny compared to the performance of another sire’s progeny. Accuracy (Acc.) - A measure of reliability of an EPD expressed between 0 and 1.0. Accuracies closer to 1.0 means the EPD is a more reliable estimate of a sire’s true genetic value for the trait. % Rank - Based on percentages, this indicates where a bull’s EPD ranks him in the entire population of his respective breed. Calving Ease Direct (CED) - is the difference in percentage of unassisted births when a sire is bred to first calf heifers. A higher number is desirable. Birth Weight (BW) - predicts the difference in average birth weight of a bull’s calves compared to calves of another bull. Reported in pounds, a lower number is desirable. Weaning Weight (WW) - predicts the difference in average 205-day weight of a bull’s progeny compared to calves of another bull. Reported in pounds, a higher number is desirable. Yearling Weight (YW) - predicts the difference in average 365-day weight of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in pounds, a higher number is generally desirable. Yearling Height (YH) - The YH EPD predicts the difference in yearling hip height of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in inches, ideal values vary depending on production environment. Residual Average Daily Gain (RADG) - expressed in pounds per day, is a predictor of a sire’s genetic ability for postweaning gain in future progeny compared to that of other sires, given a constant amount of feed consumed. Dry Matter Intake (DMI) - expressed in pounds per day, is a predictor of difference transmitting ability for feed intake during the postweaning phase, compared to that of other sires. Scrotal Circumference (SC) - The SC EPD predicts the difference in yearling scrotal circumference of a bull’s male progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in centimeters, a larger number is desirable. 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 sire’s calves. In herds where temperament problems are not an issue, this expected difference would not be realized. Calving Ease Maternal (CEM or MCE) - is expressed as a difference in percentage of unassisted births of a sire’s daughters as first-calf heifers when compared to daughters of other sires. Reported as a percentage, a higher value is desirable. Milk (MILK) - The milk EPD predicts the difference in average 205-day weight of a bull’s daughters’ calves compared to the calves from daughters of another bull. Reported in pounds, ideal milk values depend heavily upon the nutritional environment of the herd. Maternal Weaning Weight (MWW -Simmental); Milk and Growth (M&G - Hereford); Total Maternal (TM - Red Angus) - The EPD predicts the Weaning Weight of a bull’s daughters’ progeny and reflects both the milking ability of a bull’s daughters and the growth potential of their calves. Reported in pounds, higher numbers are generally desirable. Stayability (STAY - Red Angus & Simmental) - The stayability EPD predicts the probability of a bull’s daughters staying in production to at least six years of age compared to daughters of another bull. Reported as a percentage, a higher value is desirable. CARCASS TRAITS – EPDs for carcass traits are calculated using weighted averages of yearling ultrasounds and progeny carcass data. Carcass Weight (CW) - The EPD predicts the difference in hot carcass weight of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of all other bulls evaluated at a given endpoint. Reported in pounds, a higher number is generally desirable. Marbling (MARB, IMF) - The EPD predicts the difference in average USDA Marbling score of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull at a similar end point. Reported in degrees of a Marbling score, higher values are desirable. Ribeye Area (REA) - The EPD predicts the difference in ribeye area of a bull’s progeny compared to the progeny of another bull and is an indicator of total muscle in the carcass. Reported in square inches, larger numbers are generally desirable. Fat (FAT) - The EPD predicts the difference in fat thickness of carcasses, measured between the 12th and 13th ribs, of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in inches, lower values are desirable. Yield Grade (YG - Simmental) – The EPD predicts differences in USDA Yield Grade of a bull’s progeny compared to progeny of another bull. Reported in tenths of a USDA YG, lower numbers are desirable.

$VALUE INDEXES are multi-trait selection indexes, expressed in dollars per head, to assist beef producers by adding simplicity to genetic selection decisions. The $Value is an estimate of how future progeny of each sire are expected to perform, on average, compared to progeny of other sires in the database if the sires were randomly mated to cows and if calves were exposed to the same environment. ANGUS: Cow Energy Value ($EN) - expressed in dollars saved per cow per year, the EPD assesses differences in cow energy requirements for daughters of sires. A larger value is more favorable when comparing two animals (more dollars saved on feed energy expenses). $EN savings differences account for lactation energy requirements and mature size of cows. Weaned Calf Value ($W) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for preweaning 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) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning merit compared to progeny of other sires. Grid Value ($G) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for carcass grid merit compared to progeny of other sires. Beef Value ($B) - an index value expressed in dollars per head, is the expected average difference in future progeny performance for postweaning and carcass value compared to progeny of other sires. SIMMENTAL: All-Purpose Index (API) - Expressed in net dollars returned per cow exposed, evaluates Simmental sires being used on the entire cowherd (bred to both Angus first-calf heifers and mature cows) with a portion of the daughters retained for breeding and the steers and remaining heifers fed and sold on a carcass grade and yield basis. With the exception of shear force (tenderness), all EPDs are considered in this index. Terminal Index (TI) - Expressed in net dollars returned per cow exposed, evaluates the merit of sires when bred to mature Angus cows and all progeny are fed and sold on a carcass grade and yield basis. Consequently, maternal traits such as milk, stayability and MCE are not considered in this index. RED ANGUS: HerdBuilder Index (HB) - As the name indicates, implementation of the HerdBuilder Index will assist producers in building profitable herds. The HerdBuilder Index is built using the following production scenario: Red Angus bulls mated to cows and heifers (resulting progeny ¾ Red Angus, ¼ Simmental), replacement heifers retained from within the herd, and all remaining progeny sold on a quality-based carcass grid. GridMaster Index (GM) - While Red Angus has traditionally been known as a superior maternal breed, those who have retained ownership in Red Angus calves know of their potential to excel in the feedyard and ultimately hang a premium carcass. The GridMaster Index is built using the following production scenario: Red Angus bulls mated to cows (resulting progeny ¾ Red Angus, ¼ Simmental) and all progeny sold on a quality-based carcass grid. HEREFORD: Baldy Maternal Index (BMI$) - This is an index to maximize profit for commercial cow-calf producers who use Hereford bulls in rotational crossbreeding programs on Angus-based cows. Retained ownership of calves through the feedlot phase of production is maintained and the cattle are to be marketed on a CHB pricing grid. Certified Hereford Beef Index (CHB$) - This is a terminal sire index, where Hereford bulls are used on British-cross cows and all offspring are sold as fed cattle on a CHB pricing grid. There is no emphasis on milk or fertility since all cattle will be terminal. This index promotes growth and carcass. Calving Ease Index (CEZ$) - This index is used to select bulls that will be used in a heifer program. This index has increased emphasis on direct and maternal calving ease, SHORTHORN: British Maternal Index ($BMI) - As the name implies, this multi-trait selection index attempts to measure a bull’s potential profitability when complimenting the British cow base (Angus, Red Angus, Hereford, etc.). Shorthorn females can likewise be gauged at adding value to British or British-composite bulls of other breeds. A balance of growth and carcass traits is desired with a strong maternal component aimed at optimum reproductive efficiency and cow longevity.

A.I. Technique in Cattle Mel DeJarnette, Senior Reproductive Specialist and Dr. Ray Nebel, Vice President of Technical Service Programs

Because the rumen displaces the reproductive tract to the right, it is much easier to locate and manipulate the tract with your left hand.

The cervix is located on the floor of the pelvic cavity near the anterior end of the pelvic bone.

As you insert the breeding gun into the vagina, keep your gloved hand even with the gun tip.

Keep your open hand flat against the floor of the rectum, allowing manure to pass over the top of your hand and arm.

Grasp the external opening to the cervix with the thumb on top and the forefingers underneath to close the fornix and guide the gun tip into the cervix.

The recto-vaginal technique is the most commonly used method to artificially inseminate cattle. The basic skills required to perform this technique can be obtained with about three days practice under professional instruction and supervision. Additional proficiency and confidence will be achieved with further work on your own. Regardless of whether you are left or right handed, it is recommended that you use your left hand in the rectum to manipulate the reproductive tract and the right hand to manipulate the insemination gun. This is because the rumen or stomach of the cow lies on the left side of the abdominal cavity, displacing the reproductive tract slightly to the right. Thus, you will find it much easier to locate and manipulate the tract with your left as opposed to right hand. Raise the tail with your right hand and gently massage the rectum with the lubricated glove on your left hand. Place the tail on the left side of your left forearm so it will not interfere with the insemination process. With your fingers together in a pointed fashion, insert your hand in the rectum, up to your wrist. Gently wipe the vulva with a paper towel to remove excess manure and debris. Be careful not to apply excessive pressure, which may smear or push manure into the vulva and vagina. With your left hand make a fist and press down directly on top of the vulva. This will spread the vulva lips allowing clear access to insert the gun tip several inches into the vagina before contacting the vaginal walls. Insert the gun at a 30º upward angle to avoid entering the urethral opening and bladder located on the floor of the vagina. With the gun about 6 to 8 inches inside the vagina, raise the rear of the gun to a somewhat level position and slide it forward until it contacts the external portion of the cervix. You will note a distinct gristly sensation on the gun when it contacts the end of the cervix. The cervix, consists of dense connective tissue and muscle and is your primary landmark for inseminating cattle. It has often been described as having the size and consistency of a turkey neck. The size will vary, with post partum interval and age of the animal. The cervix usually has three or four annular rings or folds. The opening into the cervix protrudes back into the vagina. This forms a 360º blind-ended pocket completely around the cervical opening. This pocket is referred to as the fornix. In most cows, the cervix will be located on the floor of the pelvic cavity near the anterior end of the pelvic bone. In older cows with large reproductive tracts, the cervix may rest slightly over the pelvic bone and down into the abdominal cavity. To become a successful inseminator it is very important that you always know where the tip of the insemination gun is located. The walls of the vagina consist of thin-layered muscle and loose connective tissue. The insemination gun can be easily felt with your palpating hand. As you insert the breeding gun into the vagina, keep your gloved hand even with the gun tip. Manure in the rectum can often interfere with your ability to palpate the cervix and gun tip. However, it is seldom necessary to remove all the manure from the bowel. Instead, keep your open hand flat against the floor of the rectum, allowing the manure to pass over the top of your hand and arm. While handling the cervix you may notice rectal constriction rings attempting to force your arm from the cow. To relax these rings, place two fingers through the center of a ring and massage back and forth. The constriction ring will eventually relax, pass over your hand and arm, and you can continue the palpation process. Because the reproductive tract is freely movable, cows that have strong rectal and abdominal contractions in response to being palpated may actually push their reproductive tract back into the pelvic cavity. This will cause many folds to form in the vagina. In such cases, the insemination gun will often get caught in these folds and little or no progress will be made until they are removed. If you can locate the cervix, grasp it and push it forward. This will straighten the vagina and the gun should pass freely up to the cervix. If you cannot locate the cervix, encircle the gun tip with your thumb and forefingers. With a straightening motion of your wrist, gently “milk” the folds out of the vagina a little at a time. Slide the gun forward and repeat the process until the cervix is reached.

Using the flexibility of your wrist, twist and bend the cervix until you feel the second ring slide over the gun tip.

Use your index finger to check gun placement (1/4 inch past the end of the cervix) before depositing semen.


At this point it is important for you to understand that inseminating a cow is a two-step process. The first step is to get the gun tip to the cervix. To accomplish this you must work the vagina and cervix forward, away from you to straighten the vaginal folds. If you do not feel the gristly sensation of the cervix on the gun, you are still in step one of the process. Once the gun is in contact with the external surface of the cervix you are ready to begin step 2. In step 2, you place the cervix on or over the insemination gun. That’s right, the cervix is placed on the gun, the gun is not passed through the cervix. Excessive movement or probing with the insemination gun during the second step is very often counterproductive. Ground gained is often lost and we find ourselves back in a vaginal fold. The key to mastering step 2 of the insemination process is to know how to hold and manipulate the cervix and concentrating on doing the work with the hand inside the cow, not the one holding the gun. When the gun first contacts the cervix, you will usually find that the tip is in the fornix directly over top of the opening. Grasp the external opening to the cervix with the thumb on top and forefingers underneath. This closes the fornix at top and bottom. As in step 1 we must still know the location of the gun tip. This is accomplished with the palm and third and fourth fingers of your palpating hand. Use your palm and these two fingers to guide the gun tip to the cervical opening located between your thumb and forefingers. With gentle probing the opening should be located. You will feel the gun slide forward until it contacts the second cervical ring. Maintain gentle but steady forward pressure on the gun and slide your thumb and forefingers just in front of the gun tip and re-grasp the cervix. Because the cervix is composed of dense connective tissue and muscle, it is difficult to clearly distinguish the gun tip when it is located within this structure. However, you can determine the approximate location by bending the cervix. Using the flexibility of your wrist, twist and bend the cervix until you feel the second ring slide over the gun tip. Repeat the process until all the rings have been passed over the gun tip. In some cases, it may be necessary to bend the cervix at a 90º angle to clear the cervical folds. Remember, you are placing the cervix over the gun, not the gun through the cervix. A slight jiggle or “give-and-go” of the gun may sometimes be necessary to help pass by a fold, but for the most part gentle forward pressure is all that is necessary and gun movement should be minimal. When all rings of the cervix have been cleared, the gun should slide forward freely with little resistance. Since the uterine wall is very thin, you will once again be able to clearly feel the insemination gun. You are now ready to check your placement and deposit the semen. Rotate your gloved hand until it lies on top of the cervix. With your index finger, locate the far end of the cervix. Pull back on the gun until you feel the tip directly underneath your finger near the internal opening of the cervix. Raise your finger and slowly deposit the semen. Push the plunger slowly so that drops of semen fall directly into the uterine body. With proper A.I. technique and gun placement, semen will be deposited in the uterine body. Uterine contractions will then transport spermatozoa forward to the horns and oviducts with a good distribution of both sides. When the insemination gun is more than 1” through the cervix, all the semen will be deposited in only one horn. This creates a situation of uneven semen distribution. Should the animal ovulate from the opposite horn, conception rates may be compromised. Be sure to raise your finger after checking gun placement. Not doing so may obstruct one horn, again creating a situation of uneven semen distribution. When checking gun tip placement, be careful not to apply excessive pressure. The delicate uterine lining is easily damaged, predisposing the cow to uterine infections and reduced fertility. Make sure you push in with the plunger and do not pull back on the gun. Pulling back may result in much of the semen dose being deposited in the cervix and vagina instead of the uterine body. Although the recommended site of semen deposition is in the uterine body, research suggests that when exact gun tip placement is in doubt, depositing semen slightly into one uterine horn is less likely to compromise fertility than cervical deposition. After properly depositing semen, slowly pull the gun from the reproductive tract. Remove the gloved hand from the rectum and shake off the excess manure. Check the gun tip for signs of blood, infection or semen leakage inside the sheath. Make notes for your veterinarian or future reference where appropriate. Remove the sheath from the gun and hold it in the gloved hand. For the final time, check to confirm which bull you have used. Remove the glove starting at the top of your arm by turning it inside out as you remove it. Wipe the gun clean and dry and return it to the proper storage location. Some of the most important aspects to remember when inseminating a cow to attain maximum breeding efficiency are: • Be gentle. Don’t use too much force. • Insemination is a two-step process. Get the gun to the cervix, and then place the cervix over the gun. • Deposit the semen just through the cervix into the uterine body. Correct insemination procedures will result in better breeding efficiencies. More selection pressure can then be placed on economic traits enabling you and your family to realize a higher return on your semen investment dollars. For more information about A.I. training classes, contact your Select Sires representative.

If the gun is more than 1 inch through the cervix, all the semen will be deposited into only one horn.

What is a Superior Settler? For better than 30 years, Select Sires high conception dairy sires have been recognized by the timetested, industry-standard “Superior Settler” designation. Select Sires is proud to introduce the Superior Settler designation in our beef lineup for 2015. As the industry leader in research and providing objective decision-making tools for customers, Select Sires uses a multi-tiered approach to identify our best conception sires; high fertility is only one component of what goes into assigning the Superior Settler designation.

The Fertility Estimate Component Select Sires has three independent in-house systems that are used to collect fertility data on beef sires. Relative Breed Efficiency (RBE) uses data from over 2,500 dairy herds used in our dairy progeny test Dr. Matt Utt programs. The Jersey Sire-RBE system uses data from numerous extremely large dairy herds (3,000 Director of Research, to 10,000 cows each) that are not on the progeny test program. In addition, Select Sires collects data Select Sires, Inc. from our beef cooperator herds and beef specialists who coordinate tens of thousands of synchronized timed AI breedings each year. All of the systems above use similar models to adjust for effects of environment (herd, month, year) and fertility of the female being inseminated (parity, service number, milk production, etc.). All data from all sources are then strategically combined into a single Composite Fertility Index (CFI) to take advantage of the power in numbers of services for improved accuracy.

The Semen Quality Component At Select Sires each collection of every bull is subjected to extensive analysis of numerous semen quality traits using state of the art equipment, techniques, and procedures. No semen makes it to inventory that is not capable of achieving normal and acceptable level fertility. However, some bulls more consistently produce semen of average to above average quality than do others.

Superior Settlers tie it all together Many times bulls have outstanding semen quality characteristics but just average fertility. On occasion bulls with excellent semen quality may have fertility deviations that are well below average. Other times bulls with below average semen quality characteristics can achieve well above average fertility. Superior Settler designations are designed to remove luck, random chance, and confusion from the process of selecting sires for fertility potential and stack the odds in your favor to achieve the greatest conception rates possible. Superior Settlers not only have outstanding semen quality characteristics but also have documented superior fertility from use in the field.

Keep sire fertility in perspective Although sire selection for fertility potential will help stack the odds in your favor to generate few extra pregnancies from a given number of inseminations, it is important for producers to remember that in the big picture, the impact of sire fertility on overall herd conception rates is trivial compared to environmental and herd management factors affecting female fertility. Sire selection for fertility is a supplement (not a substitute) to an effective reproductive management program.
