registration form and weaning worksheet
Question:

I calve in both the spring and fall, I have already used my Registration Form and Weaning Worksheet on my spring group. How do I get another Registration Form?

Answer:

Just call, fax or e-mail a request for another form. Calves previously registered will be listed with their mothers. Newer versions of the form have a check box to request the form again.

Registration Form and Weaning Worksheet

Question:

Is it possible to use the Registration Form andWeaning Worksheet if I need signatures on out-of herd bulls?

Answer:

Make arrangements to have the owner of the sire send, fax or e-mail the Association with permission to use the bull. AICA will electronically store the signature and use it on calves being registered at any time. This will eliminate the need to send the registration form to the bull owner.

Registration Form and Weaning Worksheet

Answer:

The $12.00 you paid to enroll that cow will cover the registration of any calf she has this year. You must submit the registration number on the recipient at the time you register the calf.

Question:

My recipient cows are enrolled Charolais females. What will the fee be to register her ET calf?

Guidelines for creating contemporary groups:

(as recommended by the Beef Improvement Federation – BIF)

*** managed the same

*** weighed on the same day

days in age limits
Days in age limits:
  • Weaning weights:

*140 – 270

  • Yearling Weights:

* 270 – 430

(must have at least 70 days between weigh dates)

(*BIF guidelines)

Basic contemporary group guidelines allow for some exception.

exceptions
EXCEPTIONS!!!

Always in a single animal group:

(index will be 100)

  • ET calves
  • Twins

Answer:

Animals must remain in the same contemporary group at yearling as they were in at weaning.

Question:

I want to report animals in one large yearling group from several smaller weaning groups.

expected progeny differences
Expected Progeny Differences…
  • EPD with Accuracy figures
  • Non – parent EPDS
  • Interim EPDs
  • Pedigree estimated EPDs
epds with an accuracy
EPDs with an Accuracy
  • EPDs are figured for the Association by the University of Georgia.
  • Based the animal’s own performance plus performance records of progeny and relatives.
  • Higher accuracy figures mean more reliable EPD numbers.
  • Will be used to estimate for progeny.
back solution epds
Back solution EPDs
  • EPDs are based on the animal's own performance record and relatives. No progeny records are used in a back solution EPD.
  • Individual performance records must be part of a contemporary group larger than one animal.
  • University of Georgia calculates these numbers for AICA.
  • Will be used to estimate for progeny.
interim epd
Interim EPD
  • EPD is calculated at AICA and used between Georgia runs.
  • Animal’s own performance record plus the EPDs of the dam and sire are used to generate an Interim EPD.
  • Animal must have a valid performance record within a contemporary group greater than one.
  • Will not be used to estimate progney EPDS.
pedigree estimated epd
Pedigree Estimated EPD
  • Simply an average of the dam and sire’s EPD.
  • No performance data on the individual animal is used.
  • Will not be used to estimate progeny EPDS.
