Top line...registered name an registration number
next line percentage and breed(?)
On the second one, I'd guess 50% maine, 37.5% angus, 12.5% unknown

BW = birthweight epd
ww = weaning weight epd
mat milk = maternal milk epd
yearling wt or yw = yw epd
None of those will match any actual weights. They are quoted as above or below the average set by the registering organization

Clear as mud?
