Show Your Colors

Folks,

In celebration of the 98th year of Canada’s premier rural youth development program, I would like to encourage you to ‘show your 4-H colours’ this Wednesday.  This means that, whether you were or are a 4-H personality or not, you wear the colour GREEN to show support and solidarity for the movement that most of our Canadian Angus fraternity are or have been involved with.

I hope to see lots of GREEN on Wednesday as we show our commitment to an organization that has provided so much leadership, communication, business and animal husbandry experience to hundreds of thousands of rural Canadians and millions across the globe, both the young members as well as their volunteer leaders, as they have ‘learned to do by doing’!  While I know many of you positively bleed green, I am satisfied if, for this day, we show our GREEN on the outside so that all the world can see.

The Canadian Angus Association is a proud member of the Canadian 4-H Council and we will be ‘goin’ green’ on Wednesday.  Contrary to what Kermit the Frog sings on “Sesame Street”, I’ve always found it rather ‘easy bein’ green’!

Thank you very much for your interest and support.  Remember… on Wednesday of this week… show your 4-H colours and WEAR GREEN!!!

Cheers,

Rob Smith

How to Get EPDs on Your Purebred Angus

Breed Development — Using EPDs

Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) are the most powerful genetic tool we have for selecting the best animals for your breeding program.
EPDs are values that predict how the future progeny of an animal will perform relative to the progeny of other animals in the same breed. They are expressed in the units of that particular trait. For example, weaning weight is measured in pounds thus the Weaning Weight EPD is expressed in pounds. Another way to look at it is EPDs measure an animal’s value as a parent.
EPDs are based on pedigree information and performance data such as weight information and are then compared to other animals within a contemporary group. The different traits are adjusted to a standard age to ensure that all animals are equal when they are compared. The traits are adjusted as follows:
  • 205 days of age for weaning weight
  • 365 days of age for yearling weight
  • 365 days of age for bulls in ultrasound
  • 390 days of age for heifers in ultrasound
EPDs are then calculated using complex statistical procedures twice each year during the National Cattle Evaluation (NCE).
To ensure that your animals receive EPDs you must:
1.  Be enrolled in the Canadian Angus Performance Program (CAPP).
2.  Submit weaning weights on all of your animals.
3.  Place your animals in a (same sex) contemporary group of more than two.
4.  Ensure your animals are within the acceptable age ranges:
a.      130–280 days for WW for red Angus animals
b.      120–280 days for WW for black Angus animals
c.       290–440 days for YW for all Angus animals
5.  Animals that are in a management group of their own, such as twins, fosters, ET calves and lone bull calves are automatically placed into a single animal contemporary group and will not receive EPDs until they are parents to performance-recorded progeny.
To use EPDs effectively you must understand how they work. Imagine you are interested in purchasing a couple of bulls for your herd. You are looking at the EPDs in a sale catalogue. Bull A has a weaning weight EPD of +10 and Bull B has a WW of +60. What does that mean? How can you use the EPDs to choose between the two bulls?
If these animals were randomly mated with 10 similar cows, we would expect the group average weaning weight of Bull A’s offspring to be 50 lbs lighter than that of Bull B’s (60-10=50).

For complete information on EPDs from the CAA, click on this link, http://www.cdnangus.ca/breed/using_EPDs.htm

November 1st is Deadline Day

Canadian Angus Performance Program Submission Deadline
Extended to November 1, 2011
 
We understand that weaning and weighing calves before October 11 is difficult for many breeders. The Canadian Angus Association has worked very hard with the Associations that we cooperate with in genetic evaluations on your behalf to increase efficiencies. We are very pleased to inform you that we are able to extend the deadline for performance data to be included in the next National Cattle Evaluation to Tuesday, November 1, 2011. Our staff will do their best to still have the new EPDs available in early 2012 for sale catalogue and bull buying decisions.
  • To be included in the evaluation, your performance data must be in the office on or before November 1, 2011.
  • It is preferable that you mail, rather than fax, the worksheet to ensure accuracy.
  • Weights can be submitted electronically if you are an electronic user or a HerdMaster user.
  • Refer to Breed Development pages 10–11 of the Breeder Handbook for guidelines on completing the 205 day worksheet.
Important Note:
If it is not possible to submit your weights by November 1, 2011, then please submit them as soon as possible to remain compliant on the Performance Program. There will be another evaluation in May 2012, so weights received after November 1, 2011 will be evaluated in 2012.

Remember, for a weaning weight:
  • The calf must be between 120 and 280 days of age if black.
  • The calf must be between 130 and 280 days if red.

Whole Herd Reporting
Canadian Angus Performance Program is based on Whole Herd Reporting. Please provide a weight for each calf on the worksheet or a disposal code if the calf was removed from your herd before your weaning weight date. Missing data will result in delays with adjusted weight and EPD calculations.
 
Please contact Kajal Devani, Breed Development Coordinator, at 1-888-571-3580 ext #227 or by email for questions regarding the Performance Program and EPDs.

Success Starts Here

Worth-a-Bit Angus Sale Entry

WORTH-A-BIT BLACKCAP 13X is one of our top replacement females. Every one of her EPDs is well above the breed average, with her birth weight EPD in the top 7% of the breed and yearling weight in the top 20%. Her sire, WORTH-A-BIT IN FOCUS 12U, is currently owned by Ivan Boswall of Dunstaffnage PEI. He sired the Grand Champion Bull at the 2010 St. Mary's Fair and the Reserve Champion in 2011. Her dam, WORTH-A-BIT BLACKCAP 9U, was the pick of our yearlings in 2009 by John Donaldson, former Canadian Angus Association president. She was only a two year old when she raised this sale lot.
The service sire, RED LINDALE SM WALLOP 5X is a LAZY MC SMASH son. He comes from one of the top Red Angus herds in North America and is known for siring outstanding females. WALLOP was bred at the famous Gold Bar Livestock in Ontario. 13X was preg checked safe on September 5/11 at 4.5 months. While feeding 5X for the winter of 2010 for Dale and Linda Lackie of Lindale Angus, we decided to rent him to breed our heifers. His 2011 calves surpassed our expectations and we used him again this past spring.

Free Angus Feeder Listings

I am very excited to announce that the Canadian Angus Association has created a new free service to help you market your Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed tagged feeder calves.  The Feeder Calf Listing will list upcoming lots of animals on offer by private sale, through an auction market or internet auction and will be distributed to anyone interested in purchasing Angus influenced calves.  List with us and let buyers know when and where your Angus-tagged calves will be sold! 

An email will be distributed each Friday listing new groups of cattle.  A complete list will be maintained on the Canadian Angus Association website.   To have your calves included, complete the attached form “Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Feeder Calf Listing Information” and return it to the Association office.  Please include as much information as possible, however; not including some information will not exclude you from participating.  Listings will be posted online within 1 business day and included in the next weekly email.  This free service will begin on September 16, but you can send us the information now to be included in the first distribution.

I encourage you to sell your calves through a Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Feeder Sale and calves selling at sales can still use this listing.  This year there are 169 sales across the country at 67 different auction markets and a complete list of the 2011 sales dates is also available online.  Contact your local auction market or any one of the Canadian Angus Association field staff for further information. 

The Canadian Angus Association continues to offer free third-party age verification services.  Submit the information to the office by fax, email or mail and the completed CCIA birth certificate will be returned to you.  Remember to send the information in early:  during the fall there is a higher volume of requests and processing delays may occur.  Tags are available for purchase year round and can be ordered online or by contacting the Association office. 

If you have questions, concerns or comments about any service or program administered by the Canadian Angus Association please let us know. 

Thank you for purchasing Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed tags.
