Premier Performance Sale - February 13, 2016


At Amdahl Angus we have always watched closely our birth weights for heifers and cows. We still want to keep top performance in our cattle along with strong Maternal traits which build a strong cow herd. To help our customers to better know what we know about our cattle we developed a 5-STAR RATING SYSTEM for 3 major traits-- Calving Ease (C/E), Fleshing Ability, and Disposition. One being low and five being top or best in that category. 3 is about average for the Angus Breed.
I would like to explain how we come up with our Calving Ease Rating.
We still provide all the EPDs, birth weights, and average ratios of the cows at calving, but in addtion we use all the Past History of the Sire when used on heifers and the mother's Sire when used on heifers and the shape and size of the calf at birth. We then rate each bull for future Calving Ease 1-5 STAR. Our 3,4,and 5 star bulls are suitable for heifers. Our 1 and 2 STAR Bulls we recommend for cows, but we have had some people use our 2 Star bulls on heifers and got along fine. As you can see in our catalog we guarantee our 5 STAR Calving Ease bulls to make a point that you can identify ease calving bulls with success. Many of our 4 STAR bulls are like our 5 STAR rated bulls, but we just don't want to guarantee all of them. Again feel comfortable with our 3,4, and 5 STAR rated bulls on heifers. Our 1,2,3,4, or 5 STAR rated will of course all work well with Cows.
Feel free to call with any questions you may have.
