If you're in the market for star power, invest a few minutes reviewing this Quantum x 1513 mating. In his first calf crop, Quantum has delivered one of the most impressive sire groups that we have seen in recent times. His top 1% $Combined index of +316 is complemented by phenomenal eye appeal with that big square hip and tremendous thickness being stamped on his offspring. By the way, you get all of that in a proven calving ease package at +15 for CED. We also love that Quantum brings elite foot quality to the table with claw and angle EPDs respectively registering in the top 5% and 10% of the breed.
One of the most attractive donor profiles for us is a cow that ties together moderate mature weight and a high $Energy index without sacrificing breed leading end product merit. This is a hard genetic mix to locate, but 1513 is a donor that fits that profile exactly. Her top 3% $Maternal and top 1% $Beef indexes easily push her into the top 1% of the breed for $Combined at +311. She has a bold, powerful, look in the pasture and is as easy keeping as her $Energy index of +0 tells us she should be. 1513 is a daughter of the widely admired GAR 5050 New Design 1039 donor whose descendants have set sales records all across the United States. A small sample of household names coming from this maternal line include the $180,000 Daltons Rita 7252, the ABS Global star GAR Inertia and 1513's $45,000 flush sister GAR Destination 33. GAR Destination 33 is now in the donor pen at Riverbend Ranch in Idaho. Prior to being acquired by Riverbend, 33 produced the $170,000 SJH Momentum of 33 8018 for Hillhouse Angus in Texas. Anyway you cut it, there's a lot to like here.
These are the last embryos we will offer from 1513 for the foreseeable future as she has returned to the breeding pasture from the donor pen. At a projected +314 for $Combined, we're quite confident that this mating can be a game changer.
About Embryo Transfer
The technology of embryo transfer (“ET”) in cattle came of age in the 1980s and became a standard of practice in the United States’ most progressive beef herds by the 1990s. Today, access to certified embryologists is widely available and use of ET is the most cost efficient way to multiply superior genetics derived from a special female.
An absolute basic understanding of ET is that fertilized embryos may be harvested non-surgically from a donor cow and transferred non-surgically into a recipient cow. Thus, females of superior genetics (donor cows) may become the biological mothers of calves raised by surrogate females of inferior genetics (recipient cows). Further, when embryos are harvested from donor cows, they can be cryogenically preserved by freezing and storing at an extremely low temperature in liquid nitrogen. At some later date, these frozen embryos can be thawed and transferred into recipient cows. This process is what allows us to share our genetic base with you through the sale of frozen embryos from superior donor cows.
If you are interested in any of the genetics featured here on AngusSemen.com and would like more information on initiating an embryo transfer program (or improving an existing ET program), please don’t hesitate to call or email us. We are happy to assist you in learning more about the necessary steps to build your next generation of calves through ET, including locating a “reputation” embryologist that serves your geographic area.
