                                                               lots in this catalog!
        We believe in providing our customers with the most accurate
        information possible. DNA profi ling has advanced to the point
        that when added to a bull’s pedigree and his own, individual data,
        the reliability of his EPDs increases signifi cantly. Th  erefore, to bet-
        ter serve our customers, all of the bulls in the sale have genomic-
        enhanced EPDs through DNA 50K testing.

        Th  e table below shows the estimated number of progeny the DNA
        information adds to the reliability of the EPDs. For the growth
        and carcass traits, the higher reliability is equivalent to almost a
        complete calf crop of steer calves. For a maternal trait like Stay-
        ability, it’s equivalent to getting information on at least three to
        four heifer calf-crops.

        Th  e genomic-enhanced EPDs are made possible through a
        partnership between the Red Angus Association of America and
        GeneSeek. Bottom line: we’ve made the investment so you can
        buy bulls from Feddes/C-T Red Angus with the highest possible
        confi dence.
