Participating cattle producers will have the chance to win 10 straws of semen from the leading beef A.I. companies on these high $Beef index Angus sires:

·         ABS Global: ABSOLUTE, COMPLEMENT, COUNSELOR, and DESTINATION 630

·         Accelerated Genetics: POWERHOUSE 2077B, SENSATION, and INDEX

·         CRI-Genex: FULL POWER, ENVISION, DOUBLE VISION, and DOWNLOAD

·         Origen: ADVANCE, DOUBLE DESIGN, HAWKEYE, and JOURNEY

·         Select Sires: ALL IN, SUNRISE, FORTRESS, and UPTOWN

Every bull offers a $B index above $100 (top 20% of the breed or higher), and they possess a wide range of other economically important traits as well. These sires can definitely produce premium price-eligible Top Dollar Angus feeder calves that will move through the beef supply chain and create high qualification rates for Certified Angus Beef.

One winner will be randomly selected and matched to each of the A.I. companies shown above.  Winning producers will then select one bull of their choice from within that company’s list of eligible sires. Semen will be shipped to that company’s customer service representative located nearest to the winning producer.  There will be 5 winners in all!

Zoetis will also provide each winner with 10 EAZI-BREED CIDR inserts for estrus synchronization and, for those with 75% or greater Angus-influenced cattle, 10 GeneMax Advantage or GeneMax Focus DNA tests.
