We like to select for marbling and REA but the above average across the board was a bit of luck. Both his sire and dam are above average in every carcass trait. (His dam is aslo in the top 1% for milk as is her sire!) Of his granparents all their carcass traits are above average except one grandsire on marbling and one grandam on REA. We have been scanning all our yearlings including the heifers the last couple of years. 38H, his dam and sire have all got genomically enhanced EPD's. His actual performance was impressive.

Duncraggan:
Scanning all your animals is brilliant, world class, over any breed. The herd information you must have can only be astounding!
An example to us all, as it makes the breed commercially relevant.

Do you have any indication of tenderness?  In my opinion it is the most important carcass trait.  Nice looking animals.

No indication of tenderness. We do CUP lab back scans on our yearlings and DNA genomics on all our bulls and some females. We also do DNA testing for genetic conditions on our bulls and many of our females. If tenderness ever gets included in any of the bundles then we will include it. That said we do sell a number of animals each year of freezer beef and get great reviews and repeat customers!

I love the easy fleshing females with outstanding udders!  (clapping)
