MaternalPlus® Information

A profitable cow herd begins with efficient females. But how can producers receive the most out of reproductive trait data? The answer is MaternalPlus.

MaternalPlus provides Angus breeders and their customers the information they need to make effective selection decisions. It’s a voluntary, inventory-based reporting system designed to capture additional reproductive trait data and, ultimately, expand reproductive and lifetime productivity tools.

By using MaternalPlus, producers will receive additional information at weaning processing time, including calving ease, birth weight and weaning weight EPDs for calves out of inventoried cows. In addition, MaternalPlus allows producers to submit cow disposal codes and reason designations, which keeps an accurate record of why a cow was culled.

  • Breeders can enroll any time.
  • At weaning data processing time, Calving Ease, Birth Weight and Weaning Weight EPDs are provided.
  • Allows breeders to report data using traditional means of performance reporting, such as Angus Information Management Software (AIMS), AAA Login and other software.
  • MaternalPlus allows for complete production and disposal of your cow herd.
  • Requirements include heifer breeding records, and for each inventoried female: calf record (weight, preweaning or disposal code); or disposal code for cow; or reason designations.
  • AAA Login is the venue for participating and learning more about MaternalPlus.
Visit AAA Login or contact the Association to learn how to use MaternalPlus. Click here for a list of MaternalPlus Participants in your area.
