The Top 25 Sires of progeny registered “Sire Information Report” generated by the American Angus Association at the conclusion of each fiscal year has long been the metric used to quantify the impact of A.I. marketing organizations within the Angus breed.
For the American Angus Association’s 2017 fiscal year that ended September 30, 2017, ORIgen is the source of semen for seven of the top 25 sires of progeny registered with 18,787 progeny of those ORIgen sires registered that represent 29% of all progeny produced by those top 25 sires – more than any of the other four A.I. marketing organizations with sires included in the report!
With seven sires among the top 25 and three among the top 10 which is also more than any other A.I. marketing entity, R B Tour of Duty 177 was recognized in the official report as the first Number 1 sire of progeny registered in the history of ORIgen. The top 25 sires represent nearly 20% of the total registrations of the American Angus Association for fiscal year 2017 and ORIgen’s seven sires among the top 25 represent 6% of all registrations.
ORIgen’s “Breeder to Breeder Genetic Services” concept continues to gain popularity in the seedstock industry with the ORIgen marketing system guaranteeing a minimum return of 50% of the semen sales revenue to the owners of the bulls who have made the investment of financial and intellectual resources in creating and offering Angus genetics for the advancement of the beef industry while allowing those bull owners to direct market their semen products without limitations or restrictions.
ORIgen is pleased and proud to congratulate both its customers and its bull owners on this most recent validation that Angus breeders really do want to do business with other Angus breeders that share their needs, desires and commitment to keep the Angus breed at the forefront of the industry!
