REDSPro Database Release Information

Upcoming transition to newly developed Database.
 
 
ANNOUNCEMENT: During the July 1st database transition, programmers identified multiple issues within the REDSPro software that must be resolved prior to its full release. In order to keep current on members’ submitted data, it was decided to postpone the transition until these issues were corrected. Staff and programmers are working diligently to complete the project and make a full transition possible by August 1st. 
 
Until then, work will continue to be processed through Redbull; thus, members are urged to continue submitting data for registration, transfer, and genetic evaluation by using Member Data - REDS and paper submission. As part of the REDSPro testing, the Registry Department is processing member-submitted data in both REDSPro and Redbull. Because of this, there may be periods of slow data processing. Your patience will be appreciated as this testing is carried out. 
 
The RAAA website and REDSPro Data Search and Herd Management Tools will continue to be accessible now and throughout the transition period. The REDSPro system signifies a quantum leap forward in data submission; data processing and storage; as well as stakeholders’ ability to access Red Angus data through an interface that ideally combines functionality and user-friendliness. 
 
Please continue to monitor the RAAA website and newsletters for updated information concerning the release of REDSPro.

Loaded 4 Leadership

It’s their turn to take a stand and deliver a message advocating for agriculture and the Red Angus breed. Encourage junior members to get prepared by participating in this year’s Loaded 4 Leadership conference which will focus on exploring leadership skills while creating and practicing key messages to use when interacting with the public. Brady Revels, past National FFA Officer and current representative for Elanco Animal Health, brings a wealth of experience as the facilitator for this hands-on, skill building conference.

New this year, the conference is being held in conjunction with the National Red Angus Convention, Sept. 9-11 in Grapevine, Texas. The $100 junior registration rate covers your entire convention registration including meals and the Loaded 4 Leadership conference.

Herd Navigator

Guiding Commercial Female Selection

While operating in the current revenue rich environment is certainly enjoyable, producers must realize that the stakes have been raised. Now, more than ever, producers must be making the correct decisions when it comes to selecting their replacement females. Through Red Angus’ newly released Herd Navigator DNA test, profit demanding producers now have the opportunity to obtain a genetic assessment on Red Angus-sired commercial females. For a minimal $25/head, the Herd Navigator evaluates each female’s DNA profile and assesses each trait in which RAAA calculates EPDs for, including the newly released selection indices. Thus, providing commercial producers with a roadmap for cowherd success.
