Local Angus Breeder Recognized
Sinclair Cattle Co., Warfordsburg, owns 41 bulls listed in the 2011 Fall Sire Evaluation Report published by the American Angus Association ® in Saint Joseph, Mo. Issued in both the spring and fall, the new report features the latest performance information available on 5,921 sires, and is currently accessible at www.angussiresearch.com.
“ This report provides both Angus breeders and commercial cattle producers using Angus genetics with accurate, predictable selection tools for improving their herd,” says Sally Northcutt, genetic research director. Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) are generated from the performance database of the American Angus Association, which includes information submitted by nearly 9,000 Angus breeders this past year through the association’s Beef Improvement Records (BIR) program.
The semiannual analysis for the sire evaluation report utilizes more than 20 million measures to generate nearly 59 million EPDs for the Angus breed.
The American Angus Association with headquarters in Saint Joseph, Mo., provides programs and services for nearly 30,000 members nationwide and thousands of commercial producers who use Angus genetics. Go to www.angus.org for more information.
