Weight Submission Deadline Extended

Dear Canadian Angus Performance Program Member;

Earlier this summer we advised all members who participate in the performance program and submit their calf performance data that the deadline for inclusion into the next NCE had changed from November 1st to October 10th.

We appreciate the patience of our CAPP members during this time, and we value your participation on the Performance Program.

We have heard your concerns about the deadline and have extended it to October 15th.

If you still cannot meet this deadline:

·         There is no penalty!
·         We still want your weights, send them when you can.
·         There is another evaluation in June 2011 and your calves will receive National EPDs then.
·         In the meantime the CAA will generate interim EPDs, which include both parental information and weaning weight information in the calculation

We hope that this extension to the deadline will alleviate a little stress during this busy harvest and give you more time to get your calves weighed.

We understand that some members might not be able to make the deadline even with the extension. Please submit your weights as soon as possible even if it is after the deadline.

If you are able to have your calves’ weaning weights into the office before October 15th the association staff will work hard to make sure that the weights are included in the upcoming Evaluation.

Please contact me if you have any questions at all.
Regards, Kajal.

Spring 2011 NCE Data Submission Deadline has been changed to October 10th 2010. Please make sure that all performance data to be included in the genetic evaluation is in the office by October 10th, 2010. Weights that are submitted after this date will be used to generate Interim EPDs instead. Please contact me if you have any questions.
