The Weaning Report is accompanied by EPD reports for calves, sires and dams.
The Calf EPD Report provides breeders with the most accurate EPDs available for the calves at that time. Calves will receive either Interim EPDs (P+) calculated using the weaning weight ratio/index and rank information, or they will receive parental average EPDs (P) which are simply an average of the dam’s and sire’s EPDs.
The Sire EPD Report provides breeders with the most current EPDs available for the sires of the calves reported for that season. This report is a useful tool to compare sires and their calving performance within each herd.
The Dam EPD Report provides breeders with the most current EPDs available for their dams for the calving season, summarizing the herd’s female genetics for evaluation.
