AMERICAN ANGUS ASSOCIATION – THE BUSINESS BREED
News Room

Announcements

Skip Navigation Links.
Notice - The American Angus Association will be closed Friday, April 3rd in observance of Good Friday.
 
Revised Mailing List Policy - The American Angus Association maintains a database of its members for use by the Association and its subsidiaries. Mailing lists derived from that database are available to state, regional and local Angus associations for approved use in their own state/region. At its February 2015 meeting, the Board of Directors approved revisions to the Association mailing list policy.
 
DMI EPD Now Available - The American Angus Association announces a new EPD to appear on all registration materials and weekly Association reports, beginning Friday, March 6. The dry matter intake EPD, formerly referenced as the feed intake EPD, was traditionally calculated in an unpublished format as a component of the residual average daily gain (RADG) EPD and, was most recently introduced in calculations for feed value ($F) (which is a component of $B).

The DMI EPD will appear alongside RADG and is reported in pounds of dry matter per day, where lower numbers indicate less intake. DMI EPD is supported by both feed intake data and genomic profile information. In response to member requests, the Association Board of Directors voted in December to publish the DMI EPD.
 
Submit Foot Scores through AAA Login - American Angus Association members can now download a spreadsheet to submit foot scores via their AAA Login account. To download the spreadsheets in AAA Login, click the “Spreadsheet Entry” tab, then “Foot Score Spreadsheet.”

The data will be compiled in a data set that could lay the foundation of a genetic prediction tool for foot structure and soundness.

Foot-scoring instructions and supporting materials are also available, and further system details appear in the March Angus Journal.
 
For more information, contact Dan Moser, AGI president, or Tonya Amen, AGI genetic service director.
 
New Options for Submitting AHIR Data - Inside AAA Login, the spreadsheet tab now has options to download spreadsheets for submitting data on Pulmonary Arterial Pressure (PAP), Feed Intake and Foot Score. These spreadsheets will include pre-filled columns related to animal ID and pedigree and allow for the quickest upload and processing times once the additional required fields have been submitted.
