Adjusted 205 and 365 day Weights

        BW: Actual  birthweight (we don't guess)

        Adj 205 (WW) WT:   Weaning weights adjusted to 205 days of age - age of dam is considered in breed association formula

        Adj 365 (YW) WT:   Yearling weights adjusted to 365 days of age by the breed association formula.

On Feed Tests:  will be available on each bull's page

The Yearling test period begins the day they were weaned and ended with the weights taken in early February.  Average daily gain (ADG) was calculated by dividing the pounds gained by test days.

The test weights are for performance comparison within our herd only.  Consider and keep in mind that feed management differs with each program.  We don't feed to obtain and offer heavy weights. The bulls are developed with practical feeding management- on grass at cow's side (with no creep) and wintered on a growing ration to ensure a sound, fertile bull to work in your breeding herd. Nothing hid with feed!

Getting the Most out of Your Yearling Bulls ___________________________________

Benefits of  Using Yearling Bulls

Utilizing yearling bulls may mean a quicker introduction of superior, economically important genetics into a production herd. This generation interval shortening allow the commercial producer to gain genetic advantage for both replacement and terminal cattle. This allows for gaining an extra year of using superior genetics to improve quality beef calves.

Caring For Your Bull
FEEDING: Remember, your yearling bull still has some growing to do. Feed the young bull well. Depending on your conditions,  a supplemental grain ration may be required,  a mineral pack  in addition to a full feed of good quality hay before and after breeding season until he is matured.  After the first breeding season, continue to feed liberally so that the bull will grow out well.
BREEDING SEASON: Plan to use your bull in a restricted 45 to 60-day breeding season the first time. Observe him closely to be sure he is serving and settling females.

NUMBER OF COWS: Again according to your program's conditions -  the number should be governed by the size of the cow herd, in number and structure as well as the size of the field the herd will cover.  In average, a yearling angus bull can settle 20 cows or heifers quite easily.

MANAGEMENT:  Try not to run yearling bulls with older, more mature bulls. There is a real chance that the younger bull will take a physical beating that may hurt his breeding capability and perhaps cause permanent damage. When a bull reaches 2 years of age, he can usually take care of himself in the bull pen and pasture.

We believe that with a little extra care, the benefits of using yearling bulls
will add profit dollars to your program.

·  Above and beyond the paper and numbers, we offer you valuable information about essential cow herd traits that are not addressed directly by performance or EPD data. These include fleshing ability, capacity, fertility, udder quality, gentle dispositon, and structural soundness. We've spent more than five decades working on these things. And our customers  appreciate it.
·  We don't feed to obtain and offer heavy weights. The bulls are developed with practical feeding management and arewintered  in one group.

  Breeding power which is "ranch-conditioned"  not  "over-conditioned". These bulls will be in perfect condition to work in the commercial industry and are prepared for as such.

     As a further means to improve our herd we have submitted animal data to the Canadian Angus Performance Program, CAPP. The first data was submitted with the program's initiation, (over 30 years ago) and along with EPD data offers another tool for our customer's bull selection.
