TERMS AND DEFINITIONS Homozygous Polled These bulls have a 99.9% probability of being homozygous polled, having been verified either through DNA testing or having been verified through mating to horned cows. All calves from these sires will be polled. Heterozygous Polled These bulls are polled but carry one polled gene and one horned gene, therefore they may sire horned calves when mated to horned cows or other hetero polled cows. Horned These bulls carry the horned gene and will only produce horned calves when mated to other horned females.

Purebred Purebred is defined as having the blood percentage of the breed at 99.9% or less and have some influence of blood from another breed. Fullblood Fullblood cattle are 100% pure and have no influence from any other breed. Recessive Genes Abbreviations For complete definitions and more details please refer to the back of the catalogue.

AMF – Tested free of Arthrogryposis Multiplex or also known as Curly Calf syndrome.

EPD Abbreviations EPD (Expected Progeny Difference) is an estimate of how a sire’s progeny will perform in comparison to other sires in the breed. ACC (Accuracy) is a measure of certainty regarding the EPD evaluation for a performance trait. Large values indicate a greater accuracy while lower accuracies of less than 0.20 are typical for sires who’s EPD’s are based on pedigree and few progeny. CED or CE (Calving Ease Direct) is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit calving ease in comparison to other sires, in other words progeny being born unassisted. BW (Birth Weight) is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit birth weight to his progeny in comparison to other sires, Used in conjunction with actual birth weight this can be used to determine calving ease. WW (Weaning Weight) is used as a predictor to show the sire’s ability to transmit weaning growth to hi progeny, in comparison to other sires. YW (Yearling Weight) is used as a predictor to show the sire’s ability to transmit growth to hi progeny, in comparison to other sires. MILK is a predictor of a sire’s genetic merit for milk and maternal strength, as expressed by his daughters. M&G, MWWT or TM (Total Maternal) reflects a sire’s ability to transmit growth genetics combined with milking abilities to his daughters. CEM or MCE (Maternal Calving Ease) is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit calving ease to his daughters.

NHF – Tested free of Neuropathic Hydrocephalus

SC (Scrotal Circumference) is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit scrotal size in comparison to other sires.

CAF – Tested free of Contractual Arachnodactyl or also known as Fawn Calf Disease.

STAY is a predictor of the sire’s ability to produce females that produce and have longevity.

MAF – Tested free of Alpha-Mannosidosis

CW (Carcass Weight) is expressed in lbs and is a predictor of the difference in hot carcass weight of a sire’s progeny compared to other sires.

OSF – Tested free of Osteopetrosis HYF – Tested free of Hypotrichosis DLF – Tested dilutor free IEF – Tested free Idiopathic Epilepsy THF – Tested free of Tibial Hemimelia

PHAF - Tested free of Pulmonary Hypoplasia with Anasarca

MARB or IMF (Marbling) is a predictor of the sires ability to transmit intramuscular fat in the ribeye muscle of his progeny compared to other sires. REA (Rib Eye Area) is a predictor of the difference in square inches of ribeye area of a sire’s progeny compared to the progeny of other sires. FAT (Fat Thickness) is a predictor of the difference in the external fat thickness at the 12th rib in comparison to the progeny of other sires.

SIRE PROGENY


Arthrogryposis Multiplex (AM) which is also known as Curly Calf Syndrome has been diagnosed in some lines of Angus cattle. The genetic defect is characterized by a calf being born dead with what appears as a bent or twisted spine. The calves also appear small with little muscle development and legs tend to be rigid or hyperextended, which can sometimes lead to calving difficulties. Neuropathic Hydrocephalus (NH) which is also known as “Water Head”, is a genetic defect that has been diagnosed in some lines of Angus. NH calves are born near to term and have birth weights around 25-35 lbs. The cranium is remarkably enlarged with the bones of the skull malformed and the cranial cavity is filled with fluid and no evidence of brain tissue. Contractual Arachnodactyly (CA) also known as “Fawn Calf”, has been recently diagnosed within certain lines of Angus cattle. CA calves are normally born alive and can usually walk, suckle and survive however face limited mobility due to contractures that reduce the range of angular movement in the upper limb joints at birth. Due to the reduced mobility the calves often appear in an abnormal crouched posture similar to a deer farm, with feet placed more to the rear than normal, hocks pull up and back and the spine slightly arched. CA infected calves can show significant recovery and usually appear relatively normal by 4 to 6 months of age. Alpha-Mannosidosis (MA) is a lethal nervous system disorder that has been diagnosed in certain lines of Red Angus cattle. Cattle affected by MA usually fail to thrive and develop a progressive in coordination as well as an aggressive disposition. Typically affected animals will die before reaching sexual maturity.

GENETIC RECESSIVE GENES

Osteopetrosis (OS) also referred to as “Marble Bone Disease” has been diagnosed in certain lines of Red Angus cattle. OS calves are typically born dead and 10-30 days premature. They usually possess a short lower jaw with impacted molars and long, fragile bones that can be broken with ease. Hypotrichosis (HY) which is also referred to as “Hairlessness”, is a genetic recessive disorder diagnosed in certain lines of Hereford cattle. HY affected animals are often born with very short, fine and kinky hair that falls out leaving bare spots and areas that are susceptible to rubbing. Dilutor (DL) carrier Hereford bull and females when mated to black cattle can produce offspring with a haircoat that is gray, smokey or chocolate in color. Idiopathic Epilepsy (IE) is a genetic recessive disorder that has been noted in Herefords. Age of onset or first seizure can be variable, ranging from birth to several months of age. Occurrence and persistence of seizures may be influenced by environmental stressors such as temperature extremes and increased physical activity. Upon initial onset of seizure episodes individuals will typically lie on their sides with all limbs extended in a rigid state. Seizure episodes may last from several minutes to more than an hour. Tibial Hemimelia (TH) has been diagnosed in several breeds including Shorthorn, Maine-Anjou as well as Club Calf sires. TH affected calves are typically born with excessively large abdominal hernias and are unable to stand due to twisted rear legs and fussed joints. Pulmonary Hypoplasia with Anasarca (PHA) has been diagnosed in several breeds including Shorthorns, MaineAnjous as well as Club Calf sires. PHA calves are usually born dead with an extremely large amount of fluid both in the body cavity and between the body and skin. The results is abnormally large calves that require birthing assistance and can cause calving complications.


PUTTING SEMEX TO

WORK IN YOUR HERD Semex understands the importance of genetics and reproductive efficiency in a herd, and we’re committed to providing cattlemen with the highest quality genetics and tools to ensure their herd’s profitability, efficiency and success. We do this through the execution of our high quality standards, our time-tested Balanced Breeding Philosophy and through continued research and innovation in genetic products.

Global studies confirm that the greatest loss of income on any operation, whether it be a small family farm or a large synchronized commercial breeding program, are the expenses associated with non-pregnancy rates. Semex has a fertility solution called Repromix™. Repromix™ is a fertility solution for breeders who are looking for high fertility that will work well in large synchronization breeding programs. Repromix™ utilizes highly concentrated, pooled semen to help breeders maximize conception rates and therefore increase their herd’s profitability and efficiency. Semex has only selected genetically superior sires that offer a balance of calving ease, growth, muscle and maternal strength for our Repromix™ beef cocktails.
