    Welcome by Josh Wooddisse

    Marywood Simmentals is the legacy of more than two decades of intensive genetic development through a

    breeding program designed to produce breeding bulls and replacement females. This tradition is carried for-

    ward through the Marywood Co-operators. We strive to produce calves that mature early, are exceptionally

    fertile, reach 700-lb at weaning, 1,400-lb at breeding and breed back within 60 days. This program allows us to

    offer you bulls that are at the top of their class for adding more lean meat yield, calving ease and maternal

    traits to your herd. We try to improve our numbers every year so that you can improve yours. We pride our-

    selves on our bulls because of the positive influence they can have on your calf crop and your breeding pro-

    gram!

    If you have any question about selecting a bull, or questions about the numbers we use please contact me and

    Id be happy to work with you to make sense of it all.

    Thank you for all your support.

    Information we use to make good breeding decisions.

    Marywood Co-operators are dedicated to producing the highest quality animals using every resource available to make

    the best breeding decisions. We evaluate the genetic potential and future production capabilities of our animals using

    production measures, genetic evaluations and good common sense. A genetic evaluation tool that works for all breeds of

    cattle is the BIO Across Breed Calculations (ABCs). These ABC values are expressed as a percentile; this makes 100

    the top of the class and 0 the bottom. ABCs are calculated using data collected from all breeds of cattle which makes

    this a tool for comparing traits, such as calving ease (CE), within a breed, between breeds and in crossbred cattle as well.

    For example a breed like Angus will have a higher ABC number for birth weight (BW) than a Simmental because on

    average the physical weight of an Angus calf will be lighter. The best way to use these numbers on your herd is to

    purchase animals with numbers that would complement your breeding goals. If you dont know the numbers for your

    herd, the table below shows the average BIO ABC rankings for all breeds as well as Angus, Charolais, and Simmentals

    for reference. This table is here to show the norms between breeds and highlight how our bulls measure up compared to

    the Simmental breed in general.

    Understanding genetic evaluation (GE) terms.

    Genetic Evaluation (GE) An animals observed performance for a trait is known as a phenotype. The phenotype (or performance) is influenced by the environment the animal is subjected to or raised in, as well as

    the genetic contribution of the animals parents (dam and sire).

    Phenotype = Genotype + Environment

    Across Breed Comparison Percentile (ABC%) BIO calculates percentile rankings for all traits. With

    percentile rankings, 100 is the best possible rank. For an animal that ranks 95 for a trait, they are in the top 5%

    for that trait across all breeds. With ABCs one breed can be compared to another, a purebred can be compared

    to percentage cattle and percentage cattle can be compared, regardless of their breed composition.

    Calving Ease (CE) Calving ease ABC is a prediction of the ease with which a bulls calves are born. This number represents the difference from the average percentage of unassisted births calculated across all beef

    breeds. Average Simmental CE -1.6 with an ABC% ranking of 23, as of 2012.

    Example: Bull A has a CE of +5% and Bull B has a CE of -0.5%. From this information we predict that 5% more of

    the calves born from Bull A will be born unassisted than the average from all beef breeds. Bull B would have 0.5%

    less unassisted births than average. Comparing the two bulls we predict that Bull A will have 5.5% more unassisted

    births than Bull B.

    Birth Weight (BW) Birth weight ABC is a prediction of the effect a bull will have on the birth weight of its

    calves. This number represents the difference in the effect on birth weight in lbs from the average birth weight

    that would be expected across all beef breeds. Average Simmental BW 1.8 with an ABC% ranking of 21, as of 2012.

    Weaning Gain (WG) Weaning Gain ABC is a prediction of the ability of an animals calves to grow from birth to weaning. This number represents the difference in gain from birth to weaning from the average

    expected gain across all beef breeds. WG numbers are expressed in lbs of gain. Average Simmental WG 44.4 with an ABC% ranking of 79, as of 2012.

    Example: Bull A has a WG ABC of -1.0 and Bull B has a WG EPD of +3.5. We predict that Bull A will have calves that gain 1

    lbs less from birth to weaning than we expect across all beef breeds. Bull B will have calves that gain 3.5 bs more than we expect

    on average. Compared to each other, Bull B will produce calves that gain 4.5 lbs more than those of Bull A.

    Milk Milk ABC indicates the ability of an animals daughters to provide their calves with milk and mothering ability as measured by heavier calves than expected on average across breeds. This number is expressed in lbs. Average Simmental Milk 27.1 with a ABC% ranking of 83, as of 2012.

    Yearling Gain (YG) Yearling gain ABC expected progeny differences (EPDs) are a prediction of an animals calves ability to grow from birth to yearling. This number represents the difference in gain in lbs of calves off

    of this animal as compared to the average gain that would be expected from calves across all breeds.

    Average Simmental YG 75.3 with an ABC% ranking of 70, as of 2012.

    Fat Thickness (FAT) Fat Thickness ABC is a prediction of the difference in an adjusted 365-day 12th rib fat

    thickness for calves produced by this animal. This number represents the difference in predicted fat cover

    thickness in mm for calves off this animal than what is expected on average across breeds. Average Simmental FAT -1.6 with an ABC% ranking of 23, as of 2012.

    Ribeye Area (REA) Ribeye area ABC is a prediction of the adjusted 365-day rib eye area measured at the 12th

    rib for calves off this animal. This number represents the difference in ribeye area measured in square inches

    for progeny from this animal as compared to the average across all breeds. Average Simmental REA 0.33 with an ABC% ranking of 73, as of 2012.

    Intramuscular Fat (%IMF) %IMF ABC is a prediction of the percentage of the ribeye area that is taken up

    by intramuscular fat for calves off this animal. This number represents the percentage of REA that is made up

    of intramuscular fat (or marbling) in calves from this animal as compared to the %IMF expected on average

    across all breeds. This measurement reflects marbling which is one consideration used in grading carcasses. Average Simmental %IMF -0.09 with an ABC% ranking of 31, as of 2012.
