2009 Hereford Sire Summary now available

The Spring 2009 Hereford Sire Summary is now available in print and online at www.Hereford.org. The new summary includes detailed listings on 2,053 sires to help producers make informed buying, breeding and other management decisions.

Sire entries include, not only expected progeny differences, but also $Profit Indexes for cattlemen who prefer to look at one number rather than many to identify the most profitable genetics for their production scenario. The four indexes are Baldy Maternal Index, Brahman Influence Index, Certified Hereford Beef Index and Calving EZ Index.

In the summary preface are explanations of these indexes and a wealth of other knowledge to help users understand the listed sire information.

To request a sire summary, contact AHA staff at 816-842-3757. You can also download the electronic version at Hereford.org, under the "Whole Herd TPR" tab and then "EPD Search & Reference."

Herefords are proving themselves the efficiency experts through research, and Hereford and Hereford-influenced calves are gaining demand through the Certified Hereford Beef and Hereford Verified programs. Also, the baldie, or Hereford-Angus cross, is one of the industry's most sought-after cows. To learn more about these topics visit www.Hereford.org, or call the Association directly at 816-842-3757.
