Information our buyers should consider about the data on our cattle Weights, ADG, EPD's, actual Carcass Data and $Beef Values.
*Strong maternal females with perfect teats and udders, good dispositions and that calve unassisted and take care of their calves.
*Moderate framed cattle with females that re-breed year after year……longevity and “repeatability”.
*Balanced trait cattle with adequate milk, IMF, REA, gain etc.ﾠ No trait should be over emphasized at the expense of other traits.ﾠ Too much milk compromises udder quality and longevity. We believe thatﾠ“Extremes eliminate themselves in nature.”
We believe that $EN figures should be considered by cattlemen.ﾠ$EN measures differing cow energy requirements, expressed in dollars per cow per year as an expected dollar savings in future daughters of sires.ﾠ A larger positive $EN figure means more dollars saved on feed energy costs. ﾠA negative $EN indicates “harder doing”, resource hungry cattle.ﾠ Factors that affect $EN figures include basic energy requirements, milk and mature cow size/growth. As a rule, large milk, growth and mature size EPD numbers will lead to negative $EN.ﾠ We believe in positive $EN cattle and will be providing that number on our cattle data.
