Genetic Merit

The ability of cattle to gain, grade and make money is genetically determined. The Genetic Merit Scorecard® program takes EPDs of all the bulls used in your herd for the past 10 years, converts the data into simple-to-understand values, and shows your herd’s rank (relative to the national average) for the traits that are most important to cattle feeders when predicting profit potential:

1 Average Daily Gain
2 Carcass Weight
3 Feed-to-Gain Ratio
4 Ribeye Area
5 Yield Grade
6 Percent Choice
