Layle E. Lonkard, of Williamstown, owns a bull listed in the Spring 2010 Sire Evaluation Report published by the American Angus Association® in Saint Joseph, Mo. Issued in both the spring and fall, the new report features the latest performance information available on 4,607 sires, and is currently accessible at www.angus.org.

“This report provides both Angus breeders and commercial cattle producers using Angus genetics with accurate, predictable selection tools for improving their herd,” said Bill Bowman, American Angus Association chief operating officer (COO) and director of performance programs. Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs) are generated from the performance database of the American Angus Association, which includes information submitted by nearly 9,000 Angus breeders this past year through the Association’s Beef Improvement Records (BIR) program.

The American Angus Association provides programs and services for nearly 30,000 members nationwide and thousands of commercial producers who use Angus genetics. Go to www.angus.org for more information.
