Performance Program Deadline Extended to November 1

We understand that weaning and weighing calves before October 11 is difficult for many breeders. The Canadian Angus Association has worked very hard with the Associations that we cooperate with in genetic evaluations on your behalf to increase efficiencies. We are very pleased to inform you that we are able to extend the deadline for performance data to be included in the next National Cattle Evaluation to Tuesday, November 1, 2011. Our staff will do their best to still have the new EPDs available in early 2012 for sale catalogue and bull buying decisions.

The Canadian Angus Association staff value our members and the feedback that you provide. We will continue to work hard for you to provide you with tools and services that are useful and practical for your Angus operation.

Please contact the Registry Department ( as soon as possible if you do not yet have the 205 day worksheet for your Spring 2011 born calves. If you received a Missing Data – Herd Inventory listing for Spring 2011, please complete it and return to us as soon as possible so we can generate the 205 day worksheet.

It is preferable that you mail the worksheet or submit your weights electronically or by HerdMaster to ensure accuracy.

Refer to the Breeder Handbook for assistance with completing the 205 day worksheet.

If you have any questions about weaning weights, online submission, the Canadian Performance Program or EPDs, please contact me.
