BIG COUNTRY GENETICS bull sale

rancher bulls ready to go to work SIMMENTAL • SIMANGUS™ • ANGUS


BIG COUNTRY GENETICS Welcome the Big Country Genetics Bull Sale. Thank you for your confidence in our program. It is an honor to serve you and your program and we work hard to provide you with the genetics to move your program in the right direction.

Jimmy and ShayLe

We believe the combination of heterosis, quality phenotype, and optimum EPDs for your environment and operation allows you to achieve excellence in both your bottom line and your cow herd. When it comes to fleshing-ability, longevity, and fertility, an average mentality is simply unacceptable. “Average never yields anything more than average, and usually, much less.” (Grant Cardone, The 10X Rule). Hybrid cattle allow us to take the highest profitability British breed (Angus) and the highest profitability Continental breed (Simmental) and make the most optimum cattle for our environment. These hybrid bulls have the ability to sire calves with as much value as any other breed when sold on the grid, increase your weaning weights, and increase the fertility/longevity within your cowherd. Not to mention you won’t find a better footed, more functional set of bulls anywhere! Allow us to be your genetic source for optimum heterosis. Sincerely, Jimmy and ShayLe

There is something new and exciting happening in Wyoming this spring. The all new XL Ranch Big Country Genetics program is taking flight and we are proud to be a part of their inaugural sale in Powell on Apr. 6. Commercial producers across this nation are re-discovering the value and profit available through crossbreeding and the planned use of SimAngus genetics for the long term. The XL Ranch program is designed to simplify genetic decisions and make hybrid vigor a reality for their important commercial customers and the larger beef industry. In addition to providing heterosis in an easy to use form, the XL Ranch program selects from the very highest value Simmental and Angus genetics in the creation of their advanced SimAngus composited bulls. Only by using the best that these information-based breeds have to offer can you be confident in consistent results and that is what you will find in the cowherd and in the bulls of the offering. The breed leading values for calving ease, growth, maternal and carcass traits are testament to their commitment to providing progress for the future. Service is the second part of the equation for successful seedstock operations. This service starts at XL Ranch with the large offering of age advanced 18+ month old bulls. Developed slowly and raised with longevity in mind, these longer aged and athletic bulls will cover lots of country and lots of cows. For those preferring yearlings however, to get that extra year of service or breed younger females, you will find a great selection too developed professionally and ready to breed this summer. You too will really appreciate the warranty and follow up after the purchase. If their customers aren’t satisfied, they won’t be either. Even though this is the first XL Ranch Big Country Genetics sale, don’t mistake them for an outfit that just offers bulls in a region and then leaves. With their ties to the area and plan to make Wyoming a long term headquarters for their genetic program, you can count on seeing these folks year after year breeding for profit then following it up with the kind of service that you should expect from a neighbor and genetic supplier. On behalf of everyone at Allied and XL, we hope to see you on Apr. 6 in Powell, but if you can’t make it, make a call and stop in early to check out the offering or just give any of us associated with the sale a call to answer questions or make a plan to participate sale day. Sincerely,

Marty Ropp

Allied Genetic Resources

AMERICAN ANGUS ASSOCIATION EPD DEFINITIONS EXPECTED PROGENY DIFFERENCE (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 preceded by an “I”, and may or may not include the animal’s own performance record for a particular trait, depending on its availability, appropriate contemporary grouping, or data edits needed for NCE. EPDs are enhanced by genomic profiles generated by Zoetis and GeneSeek, when applicable. $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.

PRODUCTION • CALVING EASE DIRECT (CED), is expressed as a difference in

• • • • • • •

percentage of unassisted births, with a higher value indicating greater calving ease in first-calf heifers. It predicts the average difference in ease with which a sire’s calves will be born when he is bred to first-calf heifers. BIRTH WEIGHT EPD (BW EPD), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit birth weight to his progeny compared to that of other sires. WEANING WEIGHT EPD (WW EPD), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit weaning growth to his progeny compared to that of other sires. YEARLING WEIGHT EPD (YW EPD), expressed in pounds, is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit yearling 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 sire’s genetic ability for postweaning gain in future progeny compared to that of other sires, given a constant amount of feed consumed. YEARLING HEIGHT EPD (YH), is a predictor of a sire’s ability to transmit yearling height, expressed in inches, compared to the 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 sire’s calves. In herds where temperament problems are not an issue, this expected difference would not be realized.

MATERNAL • MATERNAL MILK EPD (MILK), is a predictor of a sire’s 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 calf’s weaning weight attributed to milk and mothering ability. COW ENERGY VALUE ($EN), expressed in dollars 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.

CARCASS • CARCASS WEIGHT EPD (CW), expressed in pounds is a

• • •

predictor of the differences in hot carcass weight of a sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires. MARBLING EPD (MARB), expressed as a fraction of the difference in USDA marbling score of a sire’s 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 sire’s 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 sire’s progeny compared to progeny of other sires.

$VALUE INDEXES

$Value indexes are multi-trait selection indexes, expressed in dollars per head, to assist beef producers by adding simplicity to genetic selection decisions. The $Value is an estimate of how future progeny of each sire are expected to perform, on average, compared to progeny of other sires in the database if the sires were randomly mated to cows and if calves were exposed to the same environment. • WEANED CALF VALUE ($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.

AMERICAN SIMMENTAL ASSOCIATION EPD DEFINITIONS EXPECTED PROGENY DIFFERENCES (EPDS): EPDs are the most accurate and effective tool available for comparing genetic levels. In using EPDs, the difference between two sires’ EPDs represents the unit difference expected in the performance of their progeny. For example, if sires A and B have EPDs of +10 and -5, a 15-unit difference would be expected in their progeny (moving from -5 to +10 yields 15 units). Key to using EPDs is knowing in what units they are expressed. For example, if the above case referred to weaning weight EPDs, sire A would be expected to sire 15 pounds more weaning weight than sire B. If calving ease was the trait, sire A would be expected to sire 15 percent more unassisted births in first-calf heifers; in other words, if sire B sired 30 assists in a group of 100 heifers, we would expect sire A to require 15 assists. A percentile-ranking chart is required to determine where a bull’s EPDs rank him relative to other bulls in the breed. For more detailed information about EPDs and $ indexes, visit www.simmental.org. Listed below are the units in which ASA EPDs are expressed: ALL-PURPOSE INDEX (API): Dollars per cow exposed under an all-purpose-sire scenario. (See $ Indexes for more details.) BACK FAT (BF): Inches of carcass backfat at 475 days. BIRTH WEIGHT (BW): Pounds of birth weight. CALVING EASE (CE): Percent of unassisted births when used on heifers. CARCASS WEIGHT (CW): Pounds of carcass weight at 475 days. DOCILITY (DOC): Percent of offspring receiving a disposition score of 1 (docile). MATERNAL CALVING EASE (MCE): Percent of unassisted births in first-calving daughters. MILK (MLK): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk. MARBLING (MARB): Carcass marbling score at 475 days. MATERNAL WEANING WEIGHT (MWW): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk and growth. RIBEYE AREA (REA): Square inches of carcass ribeye at 475 days. TERMINAL INDEX (TI): Dollars per cow exposed under a terminal-sire scenario. (See TI for more details.) WEANING WEIGHT (WW): Pounds of weaning weight. YEARLING WEIGHT (YW): Pounds of yearling weight. YIELD GRADE (YG): Carcass yield grade score at 475 days. $ INDEXES: Though EPDs allow for the comparison of genetic levels for many economically important traits, they only provide pieces of the economic puzzle. This is where $ indexes come in. Through well-conceived, rigorous mathematical computation, $ indexes blend EPDs and economics to estimate an animal’s overall impact on integrated commercial production. The same technology that led to the dramatic progress in swine, poultry and dairy genetics over the last several decades was used to develop the following $ indexes: ALL-PURPOSE INDEX (API): Evaluates sires for use on the entire cow herd (bred to both Angus first-calf heifers and mature cows) with the portion of their daughters required to maintain herd size retained and the remaining heifers and steers put on feed and sold grade and yield. TERMINAL INDEX (TI): Evaluates sires for use on mature Angus cows with all offspring put on feed and sold grade and yield.

USING API AND TI: First, determine which index to use; if you are keeping replacements use API, if not, use TI. Then, just as with EPDs, zero in on the unit difference between bulls. (As described above, index units are in dollars per cow exposed.) The difference can be used to determine how much a bull is worth compared to another. Put another way, how much you can pay for one bull compared to another. For example, when buying an all-purpose-type sire, you can quickly figure a bull scoring +100 for API is worth an extra $6,000 over a +50 bull if both are exposed to 30 cows over 4 years ($50 diff. x 30 hd. x 4 yr.=$6,000). A percentile-ranking chart is required to determine where a bull’s index value ranks him relative to other bulls in the breed. For more detailed information about EPDs and $indexes, visit: www.simmental.org

Important disclaimer: DO NOT compare index values of purebreds of different breeds, hybrids of different breed composition or purebreds with hybrids — our system was not developed to make valid comparison among these groups. Therefore, you must first determine the breed and breed composition appropriate for your herd and use index values to compare animals within that population.

Why All the Fat Bulls? Or The cost of producing and selling environment. By Marty Ropp When you ask producers, in what condition cattle they prefer buy seedstock cattle, they regularly reply, “I just don’t want to buy over fat bulls”. In fact, for a variety of reasons seedstock buyers rarely prioritize or purchase “lean” cattle partially because not enough producers offer them for sale in normal body condition. Service age bulls for purchase with ultrasound measures of .15 to .25 inches of back fat are just not the norm (yearling bulls will generally increase .05 to .1 inches during the 30 days between ultrasound measures and sale). Females less than condition score 6 or 7 too are regularly discriminated against at purchase time despite the production challenges that can come with that extra condition. So why always the fat ones? I know that generalization isn’t fair for everyone that buys and or sells seedstock, but it’s far more often the case than not. When you consider the cost to everyone involved, all that extra environment creates an unrealistic ideal and is a pure, unnecessary expense to the cattle business. So as an industry, why do we offer overly fat seedstock cattle for sale and then regularly reward those cattle with premium pricing? There is no doubt that seeing cattle that are in better condition than those we have at home is pleasing. Most of us too have had experiences where having the cows a bit thin brought snide comments from neighbors at the coffee shop that sometimes even led to a grumpy family matriarch or patriarch. Even external influences like buying based on photos or videos, your 4H judging team coaches influence or watching the judge at Denver often send a terrible message to producers about what condition is desirable for cattle in order for them to be evaluated as ideal. It is absolutely part of our upbringing and psyche that we are the caretakers of the cattle. When they are in great condition at home for whatever reason, there is a sense of pride and comfort that goes with it. Unfortunately, when we purchase seedstock using those same criteria for condition and with dreams of pastures full of fat cows regardless of the situation, we are probably not being terribly realistic nor doing ourselves any favors economically. There is no doubt too that at times fat is a very, very good thing. Finished market cattle with appropriate external fatness (historically .35 to .6 inches of back fat) and highly marbled, are the gold standard for the majority of the US beef business. Females that hold their condition during production tend to breed and settle better than those whose body is in a substantial energy deficit. Even in those two cases however, once an optimal level of fatness is achieved, the rest is just expensive and actually can be counterproductive both to fertility in females and when Yield Grade deductions and excessive trimming are needed for marketed carcasses. Sure, when all of the animals have been reared in the same environment, it stands to reason that those with more condition probably adapted better, but when a group is fed to obesity, does the most obese one really offer any additional value? Biochemically, fat’s purpose is an energy storage mechanism. This ability to store, then metabolize fat during times of energetic challenge like poor forage seasons or during lactation is crucial for the profitability proposition of most cattle production and always has been. Fatty acids too are crucial for many of life’s functions including successful reproduction. Cattle that perform at a high level with substantial supplemental feed and environment however may or may not prove to be as adaptable when subjected to the lower cost circumstances necessary for many to be profitable in the beef business. For that and other good reasons, overfeeding of cattle destined for a long life in the breeding herd is almost certainly a substantially negative, albeit traditional practice. The effects of excess energy intake on young breeding stock is also well documented and yet too often ignored. In a fed cattle situation with animals bound for harvest, keeping the rumen pH low with extra starch and energy can be a positive because efficiency of gain can be maximized. For seedstock development however, an acidotic rumen environment is usually a terrible thing. The list of short and long term problems caused by an acid damaged and extremely permeable rumen membrane is substantial, including feet and joint problems, organ damage and even increased lung pathogen issues. All of these work to shorten the productive lives of bulls and females alike and that absolutely reduces production profits. So I guess what I am saying is that we are the primary problem and usually not the cattle. Even with all the reasons not to promote the overfeeding and over-fattening of breeding cattle, when it comes to sale time, buyers seem to salivate over an offering of smooth fat bulls or females. The lure associated with the distorted depth of side, smoothness and thickness created by over-fatness seems to be overwhelming. Pictures of absurdly over fat cattle grace the pages of nearly every livestock publication and cause folks to stop and admire them even though that individual may present little or no real genetic value and may not even offer the kind of fleshing ability represented in the photo because his or her appearance is often due to wasteful use of extreme feeding. When you consider that we over-feed seedstock largely for marketing purposes then watch at home as all of that extra bark and those dollars disappear with time and production, the extreme expense and futility should be obvious. I would offer that the excess nutrition cost for the vast majority of bulls set for sale in the US could top $50 to $100/head (may include creep feeding). That extra feed and expense absolutely does not add and probably reduces lifetime productivity. When you consider we market around 300,000 bulls per year in this nation and

BIG COUNTRY GENETICS bull sale

PAGE 24


millions of females, the price we pay just for our tradition of excessive supplemental feed is astronomical. It is truly an unnecessary cost just to please the eye and potentially fool the short sighted. Furthermore, this artificial environment often masks genetic and or physical shortcomings, can lead to reduced fertility and is absolutely proven to shorten an animal’s productive life. Just ask anyone who has tried in vain to freeze semen on an obese yearling bull or breed females who are in the process of losing extra man enhanced condition during breeding. I asked Dr. Dan Larson with Great Plains Consulting to give his views about appropriate bull development. Dr. Larson consults with a large number of seedstock producers across the country regarding their development rations and is a tremendous asset to those breeders and ultimately their customers. Dan writes, “The goal of a bull development program is inherently simply: produce a bull that will breed cows for at least 4 years with minimal problems. The route to success is less simple and requires a development program that keeps repeat customers in mind. Not repeat customers due to sale credits from previous years but customers that have had mostly excellent experiences with your bulls. The good news is bull development programs need not be complicated nor include exotic or expensive ingredients. While specialty ingredients may contribute a minor benefit, they are not essential and don’t add anything a well formulated ration cannot, except added cost. The most important aspects of formulation are balancing energy, protein and mineral/vitamins with your target gain. Balancing a ration can be inherently simple and that’s the problem. The net energy system for balancing rations is archaic, but is the basis of every ration balancing program. Rather than simply asking someone to balance a ration, talk to a professional who can work with your ON FARM ingredients to design a development PROGRAM to produce those functionally sound bulls. When designing a program, I typically target 2.75-3.25 lb/day ADG, which will produce a big enough, attractive bull at sale time, without depositing excess fat. These programs certainly vary by operation, but the ration system must contain enough roughage to ensure rumen health and prevent acidosis. Obviously higher performing cattle may exceed this gain and I constantly work with my clientele to adjust the ration program to create the type of bull we want to sell. The key factor in any system is a CONTROLLED provision of concentrate feedstuffs, and roughage if possible. If at all possible, always avoid a self-feeder situation with any replacement calf, be it a bull or heifer. This includes, and is perhaps more important, with self-limited ration systems. It seems that self-limited often equals self-managed, and that is the recipe for disaster. Occasionally self-feeders are the only option and in that case, be certain the ration contains adequate digestible fiber to reduce the risk for acidosis. In a controlled system, bunk management is of the utmost importance. Whether feeding a pen of steers or bulls, consistency and accuracy of feeding is the key to rumen health and efficiency. In my experience, acidosis and concurrent over conditioning, are the two biggest factors in customer dissatisfaction with bulls. It is not easy to produce high quality bulls, which is why only a select few do it. However, with an appropriate ration system and development program, you can use the feedstuffs you raise to develop bulls you are proud of in all environments.” The bottom line is that so many of us are so accustomed to buying over fat seedstock that it will probably take a bit of time and faith in source to learn to buy those that are developed more practically and with the buyers best interest in mind. Some seedstock programs have moved to marketing older bulls to help alleviate buyer concerns with lighter weight yearling individuals and to offer a leaner, more service ready product. The truth is even in a yearling bull program, those bulls that weigh 1100-1200 pounds and are in reasonable flesh are just as capable of mating cows and coming back in satisfactory condition as those weighing 1400-1500 pounds and some research shows these leaner bulls have a significant service capacity and longevity advantage. The difference is that we are well indoctrinated in the art of believing the heavier, faster gaining, fatter bulls are somehow genetically superior just because they look more pleasing on sale day and we even sometimes use that visual evaluation to choose between herds with hugely differing environments. As an industry and for the sake of our businesses, we need to be better than that. The facts are that when we use third party verified genetic evaluation, EPDs, DNA and other cutting edge index tools to sort cattle for real genetic value, we can do a far superior job of sourcing genetics that help insure our long term success. Actual weights were great back in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s when that was all we had. In those days being awed by an 800 or 900 pound actual weaning weights and 1500 pound yearling weights was probably understandable. Since that time we have developed evaluation tools that crush the value of those rudimentary, promoted values and allow us to find superior genetics without having to sort through over fed and longevity compromised seedstock. Don’t misunderstand, we still use weights in comparison with other herd mate contemporaries to bolster the value of our genetic evaluation, but comparing one herd’s offering to another’s based on raw weights and average daily gains is really just comparing the ability of one herd to manage nutrition and environment over another’s or maybe just a measure of who has the most feed or the biggest feed truck. Besides, so much of the real profit in the beef business is created on the cost reduction side of the equation that even the philosophy of overfeeding cattle to promote estimated genetic output value and thus enterprise profit has always been somewhat flawed. Obviously, efficient growth performance and weight is an important driver of income and profit for genetics customers up and down the beef chain. We just don’t have to make cattle obese through the impractical use of huge amounts of supplemental nutrition to find the best ones. EPDs compare animals across any environmental circumstance and thus allow us to develop seedstock in a way that is good for their longevity and still find the ones that promise greater performance genetics at all levels. There is a fine line between heavy enough and in good enough condition to market effectively, then breed an optimal number of cows in the first breeding season versus the kind of over fat bulls that have reduced fertility and a shortened productive life because of fat testicles, ruined feet, joints, rumen and or other organ damage created by nutritional excess during the development process. If you are worried that your seedstock provider is over feeding bulls here is a list of tell-tale signs: • • • • • • • • • •

Bulls with group averages for back fat of more than a .15-.30 inches. Stools consistency more common in feedlot steers and unusually loose, gray or watery. Testicular measures unusually large with scrotal shapes that are wider at the top than the bottom with little testicular definition. Bulls showing “fed cattle like” fat deposits in the brisket, flank or around the tail head? Non-Athletic bulls that struggle to easily fill their track and appear sore or even waddle. As a group, feet are compromised. Long toes, rolled over, not square and or asymmetrical. The white line at the hair line of the hoof wide is wide and very evident. Feet show signs of being trimmed. Bulls are unusually slow to get up and move very slowly to feed or water after rising especially in the morning? A sweet, acidic or unusually foul odor associated with the bulls. High levels of bulls replaced or sale credits for unsatisfactory breeding or longevity performance.

Here’s to the pioneers in this business who are working toward a more practical solution to the costs and functional shortcomings that go along with making and selling obese seedstock. It will no doubt take a great deal of time, education and faith in source, to help break the paradigms of so many years of compromising nutrition programs, mis-information and letting our eyes do too much of our thinking for us. Surely in the future we will more often select seedstock based on genetic value that’s inside and less often because of on what’s fed on the outside.
