I recently read a article up here in Canada talking about other breeds taking advantage of the angus breed by selling hybrid bull call maxi, suppers and so on. Certian breeds can even register these animals and call them balancers and sell them as pure breds even thought it is evedent that they are not. The gelbvieh assoc. is trying to get better tests in there breed when it comes to the tenderness gene so they went and told breeders that if they want to do this that they should look at the angus breed and even told them which semen companies publish the tests in there books. The guy went on to state that it could be said that the pedigrees and epds of a angus animal is the property of the angus assoc. and its members and there for should not be allowed to be used in sale catologues or marketing of cross bred bulls. He even went on to say that this is a form of copyright infringment. What do you guys think agree or disagree?
