ABS GENETIC SERVICE<br />

Full Service convenience<br />

Your full service ABS Representative can provide complete turn key<br />

programs for your convenience. Today’s synchronization protocols<br />

deliver reliable appointment breeding results to minimize your time<br />

and deliver more AI pregnancies. ABS Representatives were the first<br />

in the industry to utilize mobile breeding barns providing more<br />

flexibility, less investment for you and better results due to improved<br />

flow and reduced stress on both people and cattle.<br />

enhanced Productivity<br />

Synchronization and timed AI deliver more calves, born earlier<br />

in the calving season. With timed AI, all females get a chance to<br />

become pregnant on day one of the breeding season. Those added<br />

calves and additional days all add up to more pounds on sale day.<br />

Furthermore, research shows that calving earlier in the herd’s calving<br />

season is correlated to greater cow longevity and enhanced lifetime<br />

productivity. AI is especially beneficial for heifers where calving<br />

earlier in the season and to proven calving ease sires better positions<br />

them for lifetime success and profitability.<br />

coSt SavingS<br />

AI programs have traditionally been very cost effective compared<br />

to natural service. That’s even more true today as bull prices have<br />

increased significantly in recent years while the cost of semen from<br />

high accuracy sires has not. Beyond the genetic advantages, research<br />

shows that there is as much as a $69 per cow advantage for timed<br />

AI and synchronization.<br />

Proven geneticS to drive ProFit<br />

Whether it’s calving ease, growth or carcass merit that you want,<br />

choosing ABS high accuracy, Rock Solid® sires will ensure that you<br />

get what you pay for. ABS also brings the added advantage of our<br />

exclusive <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance evaluation for feed efficiency and total profit.<br />

While others are just starting to think about feed efficiency, ABS<br />

sires are backed by 15 plus years of Real World® progeny testing data.<br />

increaSed Marketability<br />

AI can deliver older, heavier calves with more uniformity both<br />

from an age and genetic standpoint. That alone adds value and<br />

marketability in almost any scenario. When coupled with proven<br />

genetics and age & source verification, you have access to more<br />

markets. If you are producing and selling bred heifers, sales data<br />

shows that AI bred heifers are worth more than natural service bred<br />

heifers and females bred to high accuracy, household name bulls are<br />

worth the most from a buyer perspective.<br />

iMProved Maternal geneticS<br />

Many producers have utilized AI with the primary focus of building<br />

a cow herd. Even if your main reason to AI is to assure calving<br />

ease, add performance or simply to manage cost, the maternal<br />

genetics that you retain will have a long lasting impact. Choosing<br />

high accuracy sires with known maternal qualities can reduce<br />

risk, enhance management convenience and provide long lasting<br />

performance benefits.

“We’ve tried other programs in the past,<br />

but when you find what works you stick<br />

to it. With AI, I basically bred out all the<br />

difficulties. I wanted uniformity, but I’ve<br />

improved udder quality and structure<br />

in the herd. I also have a tighter calving<br />

season and with AI to calving ease sires, I<br />

can calve without having to watch; and less<br />

labor is always great.”<br />

Mark Fulton, Fulton Ranch, SD<br />

“When I AI on that day in July, I’m<br />

accomplishing more than I am on any one<br />

given day throughout the rest of the entire<br />

year. When the cows leave that barn, six<br />

out of every 10 of them are pregnant and I<br />

know that next year, they will give birth to<br />

some of the industry’s best calves.”<br />

✔ Super Calving Ease, solid growth, moderate mature size and outstanding Scrotal Circumference<br />

✔ Offers added carcass merit and muscling<br />

✔ Progeny are even stronger in their kind - moderate, thick and easy fleshing<br />

With the same cowboy proven type and kind, a nearly identical EPD profile and the highest accuracy of any IN FOCUS son,<br />

SPECIAL FOCUS is ideally positioned to take his sire’s influence to the next level.<br />

Like IN FOCUS, his progeny are moderate framed and easy fleshing with added thickness and muscle. He also matches IN<br />

FOCUS for Calving Ease, Birth Weight and Yearling Performance.<br />

SPECIAL FOCUS’ Docility EPD has improved significantly since his initial limited herd proof. Producer reports and his<br />

genomic profile indicate that he will ultimately be much more IN FOCUS like for Docility than his current EPD would suggest.<br />

COMPLEMENT is a four star calving ease sire with a unique combination of early growth, carcass merit and maternal value.<br />

He offers a plus 100 YW EPD, but combines that with better/lower than average yearling & mature height and mature<br />

weight. In addition, his breed average Milk and top 25% RADG should also be a positive for producers looking to balance<br />

added performance with long term female size and maintainence costs.<br />

He already ranks in the top 4% for $W and the top 10% for $B and we would expect his $EN values to improve as mature<br />

daughter data enters the system.<br />

Big time Phenotype, Big time Performance<br />

✔ UPSHOT has transitioned from a crowd favorite at the 2011 National Western to a preferred sire<br />

with his first calf crop<br />

✔ Potentially Upward’s all-time best son considering his performance, genomic profile, overall<br />

EPD package and phenotypic excellence<br />

✔ Already ranks among the top 20 active sires in the breed for $B at +108.33<br />

✔ Arguably the stoutest, most attractive high growth, <strong>Beef</strong> Value and carcass merit bull in the<br />

business; will be hard to find a sire with the same genetic package that offers more style<br />

and phenotype<br />

✔ Sons will be featured in the <strong>2013</strong> Express Ranches Denver carload<br />

UPSHOT combines top carcass and growth genetics in a phenotypically superior package. The headliner of the Express<br />

Ranches Champion Carload - he emerged as a standout at the 2011 National Western due to his powerful and complete<br />

phenotype, strong genomics profile and outstanding overall EPD package.<br />

He was one of the heaviest used young sires in 2011 and currently has progeny data reported from 60 plus herds. Those<br />

calves are living up to high expectations, with solid calving ease, strong performance and impressive phenotype. Look for<br />

his progeny to make a big impact this spring as they are featured in many sales and the <strong>2013</strong> Express Ranches Carload.<br />

Future Focus on Profitability<br />

✔ Only active sire to earn a top 5% Angus <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance rank for both Maternal<br />

Index and Total Profit Index<br />

✔ Also ranks in the top 25% for reduced intake and the top 15% for<br />

Feed Efficiency Index<br />

✔ Powerful IN FOCUS son that maintains the basics of calving ease, docility and<br />

enhanced scrotal genetics with added growth, frame and carcass merit<br />

✔ Unfortunately, FUTURE FOCUS was lost just prior to this sire directory going<br />

to print. His industry leading profit proven genetics will continue to be a key part<br />

of our program through his best sons like PROFIT DRIVEN and FUTURE FORCE<br />

✔ Also look to his fellow <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance graduate IMPRESSION for an outstanding<br />

proven combination of maternal and performance genetics<br />

IT STARTS WITH THE COW<br />

The ABS definition of a productive & profitable cow and our criteria for the sires it takes to produce them.<br />

1. SHE’S MORE THAN jUST A PRETTY PICTURE<br />

Objective real world results and producer profitability are what matters.<br />

2. DOCUMENTED MATERNAL PERFORMANCE IS A MUST<br />

At ABS, we think $W is vitally important, and it has been a key part of our selection<br />

criteria for years. A current main list sire sort shows 41 ABS Angus bulls with $W<br />

values of $35.00 or higher with 17 exceeding $40.00 for both $W and $B<br />

3. DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS REqUIRE DIFFERENT COWS<br />

Maximum output isn’t always better—inputs count. ABS strives to provide bulls<br />

with strong maternal traits, but a range of $EN levels to fit varying environments.<br />

11 sires in our <strong>Spring</strong> 2012 <strong>Sire</strong> <strong>Directory</strong> rank in the top 35% of the breed for $EN.<br />

4. SHE WON’T EAT YOU OUT OF HOUSE AND HOME<br />

ABS is committed to gathering progeny feed efficiency data through our exclusive<br />

Angus <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance program. With more than 14 years of individual intake data<br />

and the industry’s only feed efficiency index and EPDs, bulls like ALLIANCE I87,<br />

PROTEGE, RITO REVENUE, POWER DESIGN, FUTURE FOCUS, FORESIGHT, NEW DESIGN<br />

878 and LEAD ON offer outstanding maternal traits with documented feed efficiency.<br />

5. DIRECT AND MATERNAL CALVING EASE AREN’T LUxURIES<br />

We don’t like our cows so much that we want to spend the entire calving season<br />

with them. You don’t have to trade calving ease to get maternal value.<br />

6. DISPOSITION IS A VALUABLE MATERNAL TRAIT<br />

ABS has published Docility EPDs in our sire directory since 2008 and was the 1st<br />

stud to do so. Besides the breed’s long time #1 sire for Docility, ABS offers 33 sires<br />

that rank in the top 25% for DOC.<br />

7. FERTILITY MAY BE LOWLY HERITABLE, BUT IT IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT<br />

We have also published Heifer Pregnancy EPDs on our bulls since their inception<br />

and are actively gathering data on both heifer pregnancy and stayability through<br />

the Angus <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance to bring you more fertile, longer lasting females.<br />

NEW DESIGN 878 DAUGHTER<br />

8. SOUNDNESS & UDDER qUALITY ARE IMPORTANT qUANTIFIABLE TRAITS<br />

ABS exclusive GTS (Genetic Type Summary) program provides the only objective, data<br />

driven type trait evaluation in the industry. We love a great daughter or dam photo,<br />

but objectively measuring a bull’s progeny tells the whole story. Look to ABS for bulls<br />

that will improve capacity, structural soundness and teat and udder quality.<br />

9. CROSS BREEDING IS A POWERFUL MATERNAL TOOL<br />

The benefits of heterosis are especially valuable on the maternal side of the<br />

equation for important but lowly heritable traits like fertility and longevity. Numerous<br />

studies show a significant lifetime productivity benefit of up to 25% for cross<br />

bred cows. ABS is committed to providing the right bulls and the right breeds for<br />

optimally structured cross breeding programs.<br />

10. HER GENETIC ABILITY MUST ExTEND AND ExCEL BEYOND THE RANCH<br />

Her first job is to produce a calf that keeps her owner in business for the long<br />

haul. However, her progeny also must ultimately perform in the feedlot and meet<br />

consumer demands for quality and consistency. That’s why we ask that our maternal<br />

bulls also excel for performance, carcass merit and $<strong>Beef</strong> Value. Adding value for the<br />

rancher and the industry is what we mean by Pasture to Plate.<br />

...and yes, she does need to look good.


... AND ADDS VALUE THROUGHOUT<br />

THE BEEF CHAIN<br />

1. REAL WORLD DATA AND OBjECTIVE RESULTS<br />

Objective results and producer profitability are what matters throughout the beef chain.<br />

2. SYNCHRONIZATION AND A.I. ADD POUNDS AND CONSISTENCY<br />

Today’s timed A.I. programs are reliable and can be done on a turn key basis. They allow every cow a<br />

chance to conceive on day one of the breeding season resulting in older, heavier calves of like genetics at<br />

weaning time. Your ABS Representative can provide expert full service programs to meet your needs.<br />

3. PERFORMANCE PAYS THE BILLS<br />

Whether you sell at weaning, background or retain ownership, pounds remain the key economic driver in<br />

this industry and growth at the right time is critical to profitability.<br />

4. EFFICIENCY ENHANCES PROFIT<br />

Through the Angus <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance, ABS has been gathering actual progeny intake and efficiency data on our<br />

bulls since 1997. Our feed efficiency index is an industry exclusive designed to give you the best description of<br />

how our sires’ combination of growth and intake genetics will impact your bottom line.<br />

5. ACTUAL HARVEST DATA TELLS THE STORY<br />

More so than indicator traits or DNA markers, actual harvest data best describes the ultimate value of ABS<br />

sired progeny to the beef industry. ABS is the # 1 user of the American Simmental Association’s carcass<br />

merit program and our exclusive Angus <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance testing program has generated more sire identified<br />

carcass data than any other program in the industry over the last fifteen years.<br />

6. BOTH qUALITY AND YIELD ARE IMPORTANT<br />

While different grids and programs offer varying premiums, cattle that marble and yield provide the most<br />

market opportunity and flexibility. ABS advocates the value of Real World proven bulls and the breed<br />

complementarity that is available through cross breeding to hit the quality and yield targets on a<br />

consistent basis.<br />

7. TENDERNESS ENHANCES qUALITY<br />

To further enhance quality, ABS has been shear force testing progeny of our sires through the<br />

Angus <strong>Sire</strong> Alliance since 2005. Bulls with the “Proven Tender” logo have been<br />

bench marked to sire calves that fall in the “guaranteed tender” range.<br />

8. DOCUMENTATION ADDS VALUE<br />

Cattle with proven genetics, known health protocols and documented age and<br />

source typically bring more than their nondocumented counterparts. The USDA ABS<br />

Age & Aource Verification Program was approved by USDA in 2006 and continues<br />

to grow at a rapid rate. ABS customers have used the program to enhance market<br />

access and prices on more than 600,000 cattle since the program’s inception.<br />

9. LET PREMIUM BUYERS KNOW ABOUT YOUR PREMIUM CATTLE<br />

Little is gained if your premium cattle aren’t exposed to premium buyers. ABS Marketing<br />

Specialists can assist in exposing your feeder cattle to 120+ quality<br />

oriented feedlots.<br />

SEMEN qUALITY and sire health standards have always been a<br />

primary focus at ABS to insure that our product consistently delivers the best<br />

results and bio-security possible.<br />

ABS has always been a leader in semen quality having assisted in the development<br />

of many of the techniques and protocols that are widely used in the industry<br />

today. More than 60 years of research have allowed ABS to develop processes and<br />

standards for semen production and processing that exceed industry norms.<br />

In addition, to protect the health and well being of the ABS bull population and<br />

provide our customers with the highest level of bio-security possible, ABS’ sire<br />

health standards exceed CSS minimum requirements. The vast majority of the<br />

beef semen marketed by ABS meets these stringent health and semen quality<br />

requirements and is classified as ABS normal PRIME quality.<br />

SEMEN SIRE HEALTH REqUIREMENTS<br />

*Priority bulls have basic health testing for the diseases monitored by CSS but have not yet been<br />

subjected to the multiple tests or full quarantine required for CSS Certification<br />

Warranty Disclaimer<br />

Since ABS Global (hereinafter called ABS) does not control conditions under which its product is employed and notwithstanding<br />

the fact that customers of ABS have had a high degree of success in their employment of its products<br />

and techniques, neither ABS nor its agents or employees give any warranty, express or implied, as to the description,<br />

quality or productiveness or the results which may be obtained by the use of any products sold, or in connection<br />

with any techniques recommended, and ABS expressly disclaims any responsibility of any kind with respect to the<br />

If requested, other quality levels may be available on certain bulls including…<br />

CHOICE quality product of outsourced and certain high demand sires produced at<br />

ABS. This semen may not fully meet ABS’ normal PRIME semen quality standards<br />

but is within industry normal ranges and is fully CSS health qualified.<br />

PRIORITY semen will be available on a request only basis on certain early release<br />

bulls. Like much of the custom collection semen used in the U.S., this product<br />

has not had full health testing to meet CSS minimum standards. It is designed<br />

for producers that are interested in getting the earliest possible semen from high<br />

demand sires.<br />

SEMEN qUALITY<br />

• Influences fertility and conception rates achieved<br />

• Determined by the processes employed and standards used in<br />

evaluating accepted semen including semen morphology & motility<br />

• ABS utilizes processes and standards for semen production and<br />

evaluation that exceed industry norms<br />

HEALTH REqUIREMENTS<br />

• Designed to protect the health of the herd in which semen is used<br />

by minimizing the risk of disease transmission<br />

• CSS Certified Semen meets Certified Semen Services minimum<br />

requirements for disease control of Semen Produced for AI<br />

• All Prime and Choice semen marketed by ABS exceeds CSS<br />

minimum requirements<br />
