Tracking Simbrah Carcass Data

The progeny of six Simbrah bulls have been weighed, tested and measured at every stage of production – with special emphasis in the carcass data, in an effort to prove their genetics are as good as believed. The calves from these sires, were weaned from the test herd at University of Illinois Experiment Station as part of the long-running American Simmental Association’s Carcass Merit Program (CMP) and now they have been harvested.

The CMP program, started in 1996, is the longest-running, structured sire evaluation program in the cattle industry. The program has expanded over the years to included about 500 sires, cooperator herds in 16 states, 35,000 matings and more than 5,000 carcass records. Other breeds have been included in the CMP and the data has contributed to several breed association databases.

The six bulls sired 27 steer calves and 26 heifer calves in this particular test. The results were favorable for Simbrah sired calves, when comparing the numbers against the Simmental and SimAngus calves. Please click here for a complete breakdown by sire and information on each sire.

Additional testing of Simbrah sired calves is in the future through the CMP program and updates will be provided as the Simbrah breed tracks carcass data.

“The ASA Board has been supportive of getting Simbrah carcass information and this combined with 50K enhanced genetic data and ASA’s Total Herd Enrollment (THE) program will allow the Simbrah breed to continue to improve the accuracies and revelance of our EPDs for carcass and all traits. Simbrah breeders are continuing to encourage ASA to provide these test herd programs, so that the breed can gain additional data,” explained Tim Smith, Simbrah Breeders Group president.
