Updated EPD information

Following the release of the Fall 2016 EPDs, RAAA staff received several EPD inquiry requests on animals with unexpected changes to their BW EPD. Investigation into those scenarios revealed an error in the BW EPD calculation. Following this discovery and subsequent correction, the growth and carcass EPDs were immediately recalculated. The corrected EPDs are now available on the RAAA website.

Changes to Office Policy

DNA tests and FCCP tags will now be pay-as-you-go

In action taken at the June Board of Directors meeting in Denton, a new payment policy was established. Customers will now be asked to pre-pay for FCCP tags or any DNA tests being requested.  The change in policy takes effect July 1, 2016, the beginning of the RAAA Fiscal Year.

Please contact the office for any questions regarding this change in office policy.

Fall 2016 EPDs now uploaded

Making critical decisions about the future of your breeding program demands the very best tools and up-to-date information available. The Red Angus Association of America (RAAA) has released the 2016 Fall EPDs that evaluate traits from calving ease to performance to carcass merit. The suite of numbers includes tools to select cattle with optimum economic relevance such as stayability, heifer pregnancy and maintenance energy requirements. GridMaster and HerdBuilder indexes offer a comprehensive tool to help cattlemen achieve their breeding goals.

For more information on EPDs, visit the “Genetics” page on the RAAA website, RedAngus.org. Producers can also access individual animals’ EPDs and breed percentiles, or calculate the projected EPDs of specific matings on the website.
