January also means a NEW Spring 2013 Beef Sire Directory!  We have traditionally tried to unveil the new books at NWSS in Denver, with the anticipation of delivery by mail to you the second week of January.  We did strive for that goal as well this year.  With American Angus Association’s announcement of recalibrating values for the Pfizer HK 50K test, re-estimated genomic correlations, and updated economic assumptions for $Values to be released this Friday, ABS has opted to hold printing until the new data arrives.  We anticipate the new directories to arrive the last week of January.  Until then, we’d like to share the online version of the directory today.  This version is complete, only using Angus EPDs from their December Sire Summary.

ABS Brangus Lineup Shows International Interest

June 8, 2012

The 6th World Brangus Congress and Beef 2012 were held in early May in Rockhampton, Queensland.  Hundreds traveled from across the globe to attend and the ABS influence was well represented.

“ABS Brangus genetics were really well represented at the Beef 2012 and the World Brangus Congress in Rockhampton, Queensland with several sires being represented in display pens, showring and in the Telepara Hills sale.  It was real encouraging to see the contribution sires like HOMBRE and DISTINCTION are making on a global stage.   The Brangus lineup continues to generate interest around the world and the cattle in Rockhampton backed up that interest.”

To celebrate this success, ABS is offering the special below.  Note, special ends next Friday, June 15, 2012.
