All breeding females receive a pre breeding vaccination with a modified live BVD vaccine to help prevent BVD persistently infected calves. At preg check cows are given killed vaccine for BVD, BRSV, IBR, Vibrio and Lepto. Calves receive vaccine for BVD, BRSV, IBR, Pasteurella and Clostridium in the spring and at pre weaning and weaning. Cattle are dewormed in the fall with Dectomax injectable and treated for lice and grubs at that time also. Sale bulls and heifers will be poured with Dectomax prior to sale.

Disposition Quiet cattle with good disposition are a No. 1 requirement around here. Notice that the bloodlines we bring in are high in docility. Then we cull strictly and eliminate any animal at any stage if they are nervous or difficult to handle. Calves are socialized from an early age and handled in a quiet and easy manner. And don t let anybody tell you that a cow has to be aggressive to be a good mother, most of our cows are gentle but will also be very protective of a newborn. Now studies have come out citing increased pregnancy rates with docile cattle. We have been seeing the studies showing that quiet, calm cattle gain better and more efficiently in the feedlots. Thus there is an economic payoff to docility along with the pleasure and increased safety of working with easy cattle. 14

18 SCHURRTOP 2063 J751 We have purchased the top selling or 2nd high selling bull at Schurrs spring sale for the last 5 years. It is hard to change when something is working so well. The Schurrs have been in the Angus business since Angus were made. Schurr cattle have competed in real world feedlot/carcass contests in several states and always seem to place 1st or 2nd. Our experience has been that the Schurr bulls calve easily. Their calves grow and excel in the feedlot. The females have been working for us as well being easy to work with and having ample milk.

Low birthweight, high carcass value. With feed costs high, in today s cattle feeding environment, you need an animal that will perform efficiently and hang a carcass that will generate premiums above average cattle. We have been feeding Gengenbach Cattle Co calves for the last six years and they have proven that they can do both. The gains are well above the yard average and the conversions are as well. We have been marketing these cattle through the US Premium Beef grid in the spring and early summer. This grid works well for cattle that grade choice and dress above the plant average as do the Gengenbach cattle. The disposition of the cattle is excellent which makes everyones job easier. It has been a pleasure feeding Randy and Mary Jo s cattle. Derek Wilson Wilson Feedyard Grant, Nebraska 20

However, research trials dated as far back as thirty years conclude the greatest advantage is an increase in overall cowherd production thanks to Maternal Heterosis. The crossbred cow is 20 to 30 times more productive in her lifetime than a straight bred cow due to increased longevity, increased efficiency, reduced age at puberty, calf survival rate, and increased rate of gain. Remember that all crossbreeding provides heterosis, but heterosis alone cannot fix poor genetics. Quotes from Jim Butcher, Gateway Simmental, Lewistown, Montana 23
27 QUICK GUIDE to ASA and $ INDEXES Expected Progeny Differences (): are the most accurate and effective tool available for comparing genetic levels. In using, the difference between two sires represents the unit difference expected in the performance of their progeny. For example, if sires A and B have 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 is knowing what units they are expressed in. For example, if the above case referred to weaning weight, A would be expected to sire 15-pounds more weaning weight than B. If calving ease were the trait, A would be expected to sire 15-percent more unassisted births in first-calf heifers; in other words, if B sired 30 assists in a group of 100 heifers, we d expect A to require 15 assists. A percentile-ranking chart is required to determine where a bull s rank him relative to other bulls in the breed. For percentile rankings or more detailed information about and $ indexes visit Listed below are the units ASA are expressed in: All-Purpose Index (API): Dollars per cow exposed under an all-purpose-sire scenario. (See below for more details.) Back Fat (BF): Inches of backfat. Birth Weight (): Pounds of birth weight. Calving Ease (CE): Percent of unassisted births when used on heifers. Carcass Weight (CW): Pounds of carcass weight. Maternal Calving Ease (MCE): Percent of unassisted births in first-calving daughters. Milk (MLK): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk. Marbling (MRB): Marbling score. Maternal Weaning Weight (MWW): Pounds of weaning weight due to milk and growth. Ribeye Area (REA): Square inches of ribeye. Warner-Bratzler Shear Force (WBSF): Pounds of force required to shear a steak. Stayability (STAY): Percent of daughters remaining in the cowherd at 6 years of age. Terminal Index (TI): Dollars per cow exposed under a terminal-sire scenario. (See below for more details.) Weaning Weight (WW): Pounds of weaning weight. Yearling Weight (YW): Pounds of yearling weight. Yield Grade (YG): Yield grade score. $ Indexes: Though allow for the comparison of genetic levels for many economically important traits, they only provide a piece of the economic puzzle. That s where $ indexes come in. Through well-conceived, rigorous mathematical computation, $ indexes blend and economics to estimate an animal s overall impact on your bottom line. 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 sire 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 re keeping replacements use API, if not, TI. Then, just as with, 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. Or, 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 percentile rankings or more detailed information about and $ indexes
