Angus EPD Updates 12-25-20

The American Angus Association released the results of the Spring 2021 National Cattle Evaluation on 12-11-20 and this spreadsheet presents the weekly updated data as of 12-25-20.

Technology is an amazing thing – beginning on Christmas morning 12-25-20 and every Friday morning going forward, when you follow the link to the 2021 ORIgen Sire Directory, the EPD data presented for each Angus sire is the data generated THE PREVIOUS WEEK. Bear in mind that the top 5% lists that are the first three pages of the Sire directory and the copy about how each bull ranked at the release of the Spring 2020 NCE on 12-11-20 WILL NOT update, BUT the EPD and $ index values and their percentile rankings ARE THE MOST CURRENT DATA AVAILABLE –
