Friday, May 29, 2020 will be the National Cattle Evaluation Bi-Annual bio-economic index variable updates.

On this day the following will happen:

  • Official release of $C (Combined Value Index).
  • Official release of PAP EPD
    • This EPD will be shown to 2 decimal points, only high yearling PAP measurement will be counted in the progeny counts, breed average will be right around +1.00 with a LOWER EPD more favorable.
  • Annual genomic percentile score update
  • Updated breed averages, percentile ranks, updated lists of main and supplemental sires, etc.
  • Targeting the Brand logo updates.
    • New requirements passed by the CAB Board state that any animal now carrying the Target the Branch logo will have a 0.65 or greater Marbling EPD AND a +55 or greater $G.

Detailed information will be released at the end of this week on angus.org about the changes happening on May 29.
