Local farms listed in Angus breeding report

Monday, September 20, 2010

Two Putnam County businesses own bulls listed in the 2010 Fall Sire Evaluation Report from the American Angus Association.

Wilson Cattle Company in Cloverdale owns nine bulls listed in the report, while Willer Timber Ridge Farm in Greencastle owns one bull listed.

The evaluation report is published in both the spring and fall, and has performance information on 5,871 sires.

"This report provides both Angus breeders and commercial cattle producers using Angus genetics with accurate, predictable selection tools for improving their herd," says Bill Bowman, American Angus Association chief operating officer (COO) and director of performance programs.

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 semi-annual analysis for the Sire Evaluation Report utilizes over 19 million measures used to generate over 55 million EPDs for the Angus breed.
