ABBA EAR Program Nominations Due
January 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-6
The E.A.R. Program is a comprehensive feeding evaluation of Brahman genetics from a purebred and percentage standpoint, with all individuals being traceable to known Brahman lines. This program is designed to allow ABBA and Brahman breeders to maintain an understanding of how their genetics perform within the Beef industry. Key purposes of the program:
- Provide a means by which a producer or user of Brahman genetics may capture carcass data in a real world setting to understand the Beef producing ability of their cattle.
- Provide a competition with reward among ABBA members and Brahman genetic users by using data collected.
- Provide real world statistics that help promote the Brahman breed globally to counter long held beef production stereotypes of Brahman cattle.
- To increase the value of Brahman genetics by offering an incentive for the commercial user in the form of a cooperative feeding and harvest program.
Nominations must be received by January 15, 2021.
Nomination fee is $35 per purebred steer – $15 for percentage steers.
All steers must be born between December 2019 – May 2020 for early 2021 spring delivery.
