A consistent Marbling score EPD and $Combined value index leader of the ORIgen Angus sire offering, Merit combines a superior $Maternal value index with negative EPD values for both Mature Weight and Mature Height EPDs and impressive end product merit to sire moderate mature size daughters with marbling score genetics to transmit to their progeny and those daughters should have the ability to function in a wide range of conditions.
With progeny from his first calf crop harvested in the midst of the COVID pandemic in the early summer of 2020, this young sire from a dam with three head scanned that recorded an average %IMF ratio of 140, has touched every base in the beef production chain combining user friendly daughters with added end product merit. Having 27 progeny genomic tested with 34 recorded progeny birth weights and 30 recorded weaning weights, Merit offers a unique and different biological type than many of the
descendants of his sire, but his data touches the bases of the $Combined value index calculation in an impressive manner.
