American Angus Association’s Producer Priority Finder
This interactive program is designed to help commercial
cow-calf producers identify the most important management priorities for their individual operations.
You can improve the profitability of your cow-calf business by placing greater management emphasis
on the priorities identified here. Click here to complete a brief self-evaluation of current management
strengths and weaknesses.
This program is for commercial cow-calf producers who want to increase the value of their cattle. This program documents genetics, source
and group age of feeder cattle and replacement females. Enrolled calves will be identified with a visual, RFID or ChoiceSet program tag.
Producers can document when they plan to sell their calves and health/management information on each enrollment groups’ marketing document.
That information can be viewed on the Cattle Listing. If you want to receive a weekly
email of cattle selling sign up now.

Beef Record Service
BRS provides a system for commercial producers to keep performance records on their
animals, regardless of breed composition. These records can help producers
make selection decisions on their cowherd, while supplying information to help market
the calf progeny as steers and replacement heifers. Producers can submit information
on their cowherd, including sire information, breeding records, calving and weaning
data, and any additional performance or carcass data collected on their calves.
This data can be submitted, viewed, and sorted via your computer on this BRS Online
site, or can also be submitted and returned on paper forms, printable from this
site, or available from the Commmercial Programs Department at the AAA.
The BRS program provides a tool for serious producers who wish to link the end product
to the producing factory by identifying genetics that work in their operation.
