2022 Brahman Country Spring Genetic Evaluation Sire Summary

August 1, 2022

The 2022 spring genomic evaluation is complete and we are excited to share the Spring 2022 BRC Sire Summary. Listed below are the traits along with the top 10 leaders for each EPD along with the accuracy value. In this sire summary we included all active BRC breeding bulls, AI sires, current bulls for sale, as well as any BRC branded bulls active in customers herds around the globe. All bulls in this summary are at least a year of age or older, although they are not all parent animals, because the improved accuracy values of these genetically backed figures merits comparison even with no progeny records.

This sire evaluation is based on data from 2600+ head. All of the data represented is 100% DNA verified genomic data. BRC is the only Brahman ranch in the USA utilizing this type of genomic data. While the ABBA has taken a position that they do not support the requirement of DNA, we believe our customers and their investments are worth the extra effort we put forth to provide accurate, parent verified data. We will continue to offer this service more into the future as we add more traits and tools to BRC customers.

What can this mean for BRC Customers?

When you buy BRC, you are buying into the only Brahman program with access to Genomically Enhanced EPDs.  We hope this evaluation can help current and future customers make more accurate mating decisions within their operations.

The benefit of genomics on these EPD’s can easily be noted when you look at the difference in accuracy values through Brahman Country Genetics versus the traditional values assigned by the breed association. For example, on average carcass traits for a non parent animal can see their accuracy number increase anywhere from 3 to 4 times what they were originally.

Let GE-EPDs be a tool to allow producers to make more accurate and dependable decisions much sooner, even before progeny records are supplied. We invite breeders who have used BRC genetics to join in our Fall 2022 Genetic Evaluation.

Together we can continue to strengthen our data set and supply usable data to continue to improve.
