The American Angus Association’s Spring 2010 Sire Evaluation Report and updated National Cattle Evaluation (NCE) EPDs are now available online at www.angus.org. The report also includes updated research reports for heifer pregnancy and docility.
Accessing the Sire Evaluation Report online is the fastest and easiest way to get the latest performance information on sires in the Angus breed. It allows you to specify ranges of EPDs and to sort bulls that qualify within those ranges. The evaluation also includes dollar value indexes ($Values), expressed in dollars per head, to assist commercial beef producers in selection decisions.
The Spring 2010 Sire Evaluation Report lists data on 2,190 sires from a total of 202,048 sires in the Association database. The Young Sire Supplement also included in the report lists 2,417 bulls.
Printed copies will be available by request. Active members who returned their blue request cards to receive a printed copy of the fall 2009 report will receive the spring 2010 report automatically. All other members and commercial producers who want a printed report must request it by contacting Brenda Gabriel at 816-383-5144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
