The Fall 2018 Genetic Evaluation is available online
This Genetic Evaluation represents part of a comprehensive breed-wide genetic evaluation program available to breeders of Beefmaster cattle. This program provides genetic values in the form of Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) for all animals — male and female — recorded on the BBU database with performance records of their own or progeny with performance records. This Genetic Evaluation contains bulls which have produced progeny with at least one weaning weight record. EPDs for all other animals included in the evaluation - such as cows with performance progeny or non—parent animals with performance records — are available from the BBU office and via the EPD search on the BBU website.
