NORTH DAKOTA’S LARGEST” 2016 RED RIVER VALLEY 515T ANNUAL SPURTSMEN’S BOAT, CAMPING VACATION Finding genetics information on bulls can be- easy As the bull-buying season contin- ues, I offer some simple reminders. Every winter, I do enjoy visiting with producers regarding upcoming bull purchases and offer a workshop titled “Bull Buying by the Numbers” to help producers get a better under- standing of what the numbers mean. Participation is geared to help indi— vidual producers streamline their bull—buying strategies to meet their individual goals and objectives. The worry is sometimes that, as an educator, I will present the proper bull to buy, thus narrowing the thou- sands upon thousands of bulls that are available to a set few. Or. even worse yet, that I will give some sort of nod to a particular bull breed. Both statements are absolutely false. Bull—purchasing advice and the workshop are designed to help pro- ducers think through and envision where they feel they are at in the beef business. In other words, are they content with the cattle they are pro— ducing? No judgment is offered; no recommendation is made as to the ul- timate cattle type. The answer re— mains in the hands of each individual producer. The offering and opportunity to improve one’s bull buying are not de- pendent on the breed of bull but rather a clear understanding of a pro- ducer’s management goals. What also is important for a producer is to Beef Talk By Kris Ringwall Beef Specialist, know the genetics of current and pre- viously purchased bulls. This is easier than often implied. Why? Bulls, at least all registered bulls, have registration numbers. which are a direct link to the breed association database and documenta— tion as to the genetics within the bullpen. So here’s a three-step plan: Step 1: Start by reviewing all the available expected progeny differ- ence (EPD) traits from the breed database. The breed is obviously the breed of bulls that have been pur- chased previously. If the registration numbers are lacking. get them from the sale catalogs used to buy the bulls or call the bull breeder directly. In the meantime, move over and join a pro— ducer who has the registration num— bers. 0 Step 2: Identify the traits of in— terest. You can choose from among many traits. I like to pick birth weight, weaning weight, yearling weight. milk, rib-eye area and mar— bling. Why? These are the “touchy feely” traits a producer can visualize and the numbers are associated with real, touchable outcomes. The EPD trait discussion is NDSU Extension Service decades long, but comprehension is lagging, especially for those traits that involve minus and positive num- bers and/or arbitrarily assigned scores. Those can be evaluated later at a producer’s leisure. The Dickinson Research Exten— sion Center goes through this same process with each bull in each breed. As a producer. you Would want to in- clude all your current bulls (and his toric bulls if you wish), working with each breed separately. For this example, I selected two Angus bulls in the center’s bullpen: bulls 17628526 and 17698292. To complete Step 2, search the Angus database by registration number. Bull 17628526 has a birth weight EPD of .1. weaning weight EPD of 53. year— ling weight EPD of 97, milk EPD of 22, rib-eye area EPD of I .01 and marbling EPD of .47. Bull 17698292 has a birth weight EPD of minus 2.5, weaning weight EPD of 46. yearling weight EPD of 85, milk EPD of 19, rib—eye area EPD of .72 and marbling EPD of .40. As a producer, you hope you will have several bulls to list within a breed, with the goal being a list of at least six previously pur- chased bulls. 0 Step 3: Average the EPD values for the listed bulls. ' The average EPDs of the two previously listed center bulls are a birth weight of minus 1 .2, weaning weight EPD of 50, yearling weight EPD of 91 , milk EPD of 21, rib—eye area EPD of .87 and marbling EPD of .44. The series of averages is indicative of the ge- netics based on the ’EPD values of the current sires. Depending on what changes a producer desires, bulls can be: pur- chased to change the bullpen average in the desired direction. At the cen- ter, if we want to increase weaning weight. we would want to bid on bulls with a weaning weight EPD greater than 50. the center’s current average for EPD weaning weight. The same principle works for all EPBtraits and illustrates that once a producer knows the average EPD values in the bullpen, bull shopping has a focused point. With time, once a producer not only understands but comes to actually utilize the individ— ual trait EPDs for potential bull pur- chases, the value of utilizing EPD index values starts to make sense. Write the index values’down and ponder them as you find the bulls with the desired EPDs. Now buy the bulls that move genes in the desired direction. May you find all your ear tags. PSC schedules hearing in Killdeer for proposed pipeline BISMARCK — The North Dakota Public Service Commission (PSC) will hold a public hearing in Killdeer on Monday, Feb. 22, regarding a pro posal for a natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline in Dunn and McKenzie counties.
