GENETIC SELECTION/RETENTION CRITERIA
MC2 Aim Points. Top 10% of Carcass Merit EPDs. Primary goal of the breeding program is to produce animals that perform in the top 10% across all carcass merit traits. Ultimately, consumer satisfaction is key and our efforts to pursue the top sires in these categories will pay off to our customers; producers, feedlots, grocery chains, etc. The following genetic objectives for selection and retention will accomplish our goals:
B1.1 Marbling. (Marb) Angus >= +0.78
B1.2 Ribeye Area (RE) Angus >= +0.74
B1.3 Fat (IMF) Angus <= -0.024
B1.4 Frame score Angus 5 to 6
The intent is to have uniform cattle across entire herd that are well muscled and medium framed. Selection is taken seriously and will not be compromised. Pictured below is an A A R Ten X 7008 daughter that is the type of frame and look we desire. This female meets the "top 10%" minimum standard.
