•    Although average heats last 12 - 15 hours, 25 - 30% of cows have heats of less than 6 hours.
•    Prevent cows getting either too fat or too thin. Cows in condition score 2 - 3 (scale
     1 - 5) are optimal. Thriving animals always do better.
•    Avoid excessive weight loss around the time of service.
•    Treat lame animals promptly.
•    Breeding cows within 50 days of calving tends to give poor results.
•    Never breed any cow with a dirty vaginal discharge or evidence of ‘whites’.

                                                                                                                                   AI Information
•    Keep complete records of all cows that come into heat and use them to anticipate returns. Where cows are not coming into
     heat have your vet examine and treat them.
•    A cow standing firm to be mounted is the best sign of heat, but remember 6 - 8% of pregnant animals will occasionally stand
     too!

       Obtaining a bull with the right genetics can have a major impact on herd profitability. Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) are
       measurements of genetic potential, which can be used to assess a bull’s breeding merit for a specific trait.
       EBVs are expressed in the same units as the traits they represent and are expressed relatie to a common baselie. Comparisons
       can be made using EBVs between bulls of the same breed, but not different breeds.
       A bull’s EBVs must be halved to estimate how much of his genetic superiority will be pased on to his progeny.
       So a bull with a 400 Day Weight EBV of +40kg will produce calves 20 kg heavier at 400 days of age than a bull with an EBV of 0.
       Accuracy Values are produced for each EBV. Accuracy is expressed as a percentage and indicates the amount of data used to
       calculate the EBV. The higher the Accuracy Value, the lower the chances of the EBV changing over time as new data becomes
       available.

BREEDPLAN is a modern genetic evaluation system for beef cattle. It offers the potential to accelerate genetic improvement in your
herd, tighten up breeding operations, improve productivity and increase prices of cattle sold for both breeding and slaughter. At the
time of printing this catalogue, the Aberdeen Angus, Simmental, Shorthorn, British Blue and Hereford breeds are using this system.
CALVING EASE
Calving Ease EBVs are based on calving difficulty scores, birth weights and gestation length information. More positive EBVs are
favourable and indicate easier calving. DIRECT calving ease indicates how this animal influences the birth of his progeny.
DAUGHTERS’ calving ease indicates how well the animal produces daughters that have easier calving.
BIRTH
GL: Gestation length EBV (days) is based on AI records. Lower (negative) GL EBVs indicate shorter gestation lengths which generally
relate to easier calving and increased growth after birth.
BWT: Birth Weight EBV (kg) is based on the measured birth weight of animals, adjusted for damage. The lower the value the lighter
the calf at birth and the less is the likelihood of a difficult birth. This is particularly important when selecting sires for use on heifers.
GROWTH
MILK: 200 Day Milk EBV (kg) is an estimate of an animal’s milking ability. For sires, this EBV is indicative of their daughters’ milking
ability as it affects the 200 Day Weight of their calves.
200: 200 Day Growth EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of animals taken between 80 and 300 days of age. Values are adjusted to
200 days and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal’s genetic merit for growth to early ages.
400: 400 Day Weight EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of progeny taken between 301 and 500 days of age, adjusted to 400 days
and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal’s genetic merit for yearling weight.
600: 600 Day Weight EBV (kg) is calculated from the weight of progeny taken between 501 and 900 days of age, adjusted to 600 days
and for dam age. This EBV is the best single estimate of an animal’s genetic merit for growth beyond yearling age.
CARCASE
CWT: Carcass Weight EBV (kg) is an estimate of the genetic difference in Carcass weight at a standard age of 650 days.
EMA: Eye Muscle Area EBV (cm2) estimates genetic differences in eye muscle area of a 300 kg dressed Carcass. More positive EBVs
indicate better muscling on animals.
RIB: Rib Fat EBV (mm) estimates the genetic differences in fat depth at the rib in a 300 kg dressed Carcass. More positive EBVs
indicate more subcutaneous fat and earlier maturity.
RBY%: Retail Beef Yield Percent EBV (%) represents total (boned out) meat yield as a percentage of a 300 kg dressed Carcass. A more
positive EBV indicates higher percentage yield for the 300 kg Carcass size.
TERMINAL SIRE INDEX
This index ranks bulls by their genetic potential for the production of prime steers and heifers for beef production. Growth and
Carcass EBVs are the main drivers used in compiling this index, with considerable emphasis on calving ease direct. Typical production
parameters, prices and costs underlie this selection index. Bulls with a higher Terminal Index will have a greater genetic potential to
sire heavier finished progeny.
As there are no maternal traits included in the calculation of the Terminal Index, bulls with a high Index will not necessarily be suitable
for breeding heifer replacements.
SELF REPLACING INDEX

                                                                                                                                                 Breedplan
This index is also focused on Calving Ease, Retail Beef Yield and Growth (as animals are still being sold for slaughter), but includes
maternal and fertility EBVs as well. The index is trying to balance the requirements for the cow herd with producing animals to market
specifications. The Self Replacing Index is aimed at a herd selecting replacement females from within the herd while breeding steers
and excess heifers to turn off to meet market specifications. There is emphasis on calving ease and maternal traits while also looking
to finish animals for slaughter.
