AAA EPD’s NOT reporting progeny ?

Post by Richnm » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:12 am

Noticed one of my cows is not showing progeny. She has had several calves reported by her previous owner and by myself. I called AAA and they could not figure out what the issue is. It’s been two weeks and they haven’t called me back or fixed it. Anyone have any ideas ? Her reg# is 14845281

I don't have an answer for you, but I have a couple of cows that are in similar situations. One cow has had seven calves, all of which I registered, but her AAA registration only shows four progeny. Another cow, a 9-year-old, is missing two of her progeny on her registration. Don't know what's up, but I've wondered why they aren't all represented.

Call them. I am in the American Simmental Association. I have my herd enrolled in THE (Total Herd Enrollment). To be in compliance, you have to enter the progeny. When I submit birthweights, calving ease, sires, etc. I sometimes look at my herd book and see a glitch. I call the Association. They have been amazing in determining the error. It is usually forgetting to request registration in the box that just requires a "Y". Or something of that nature. When the glitch is fixed, my herd book corrects.

They finally called me back. The previous owner had calves set up in contemporary groups by themselves , this prevented the data from reporting all these years. They said they fixed it. It should update today.

I might just be having good luck but I have called ASA a bunch of times, I have always gotten through to a live staff member and in every case they have been very competent.

While I had them on the line I asked about dna testing and if the dna test can determine the breed of the animal. They said no. Which makes me believe that a some breeders have crossed breeds to impact epds (hybrid vigor).

I have always heard that it can't, but you would think with AAA superior record keeping and large collection of DNA samples, they could figure it out.

Those 800 lb Angus bulls of the 70’s didn’t get to a ton overnight without some help. Be like some of those green papered Herefords that got eye pigment overnight pushing 3k lbs.
