Beefmaster releases genomic-enhanced calving ease EPDs
 
Beefmaster Breeders United (BBU) has expanded their offering of genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (EPDs) through releasing calving ease direct (CED) and maternal calving ease (MCE) EPDs.
 
Calving ease is one of the most important genetic traits for producers to consider. The Beefmaster calving ease EPDs take into account the birth weight, as well as the calving ease score that producers assign to heifers and cows at calving. The CED EPD is based on the calving ease score and birth weight and can be used to evaluate how a sire will impact calving ease in heifers calving at two years of age. While the MCE EPD is used to evaluate how a sire’s heifer offspring will calve at two years of age without difficulty.

CED and MCE are included in the current Beefmaster genetic evaluation provided through the Beefmaster EPDs Search and current sire summary.
