ABS has enjoyed a rewarding relationship with Circle A Ranch and the Angus Sire Alliance since 1996 as the exclusive marketing agent for the winning profitability bulls. We've appreciated the Angus Sire Alliance's progeny test program as the most thorough in the industry and applauded their early work with economically driven selection indexes expressed through the Sire Alliance Profitability Value.
Progeny feed efficiency data is a unique component within the Sire Alliance profitability index. While increasing feed costs have generated significant new interest throughout the industry and many new projects to evaluate feed efficiency, the Angus Sire Alliance is already backed by over 10 years of individual intake data.
The tenderness evaluation is an exclusive component of the Angus Sire Alliance. With over 3,000 steers harvested and measured for shear force, this database is well on its way to becoming the largest in the industry. This research indicates that while there is not a major problem with tenderness in the overall Angus population, there are significant sire effects that can be utilized to improve overall eating quality.
ABS' philosophy is to provide proven genetics and services that add value from the Pasture to Plate.
Our genetic emphasis is on multi-trait performers featuring end-product merit for the consumer while demanding that cattle possess the functional performance traits necessary to thrive for commercial cattle producers.
Our service components not only offer on-farm solutions for producers, but extend beyond the farm gate to add value and quality throughout the beef supply chain.
