Cattle Genetics: Our Approach

Brandon and Rachel Cutrer's Brahman cattle operation is the perfect intersection of "where tradition meets modern." We believe in taking "old school" cattle breeding methods like linebreeding, focusing on cow families, and outstanding stockmanship and meld them with modern technology, including genomic-enhanced EPDs, to offer you more consistency and predictability.

We aren't here to simply make a quick sale. We are here to be your trusted guides in your Brahman cattle journey, each step of the way. Our goal is to ensure the continued development of the greatest breed of cattle for the coastal and tropical climates - Brahman - and give you the opportunity to incorporate a superior, proven bloodline to your herd.

What Are the EPDs in Cattle?

EPD stands for expected progeny difference. EPDs:

  • Predict what traits an animal will pass on to their offspring
  • Use performance records of the animal and its parents – such as birth, weaning, and yearling weight and environment – to determine their value
  • Help you compare value on sires, cows, and younger cattle

We’ve taken this valuable tool a step further by including the results of cattle DNA testing into the traditional EPD score. Genomic-enhanced EPDs can help you make accurate predictions about younger bulls that haven’t produced offspring yet. These advanced EPDs can increase your accuracy by over 10%.

BRC Genetics and Breeding: How We Are Different
