The Certified Hereford Beef Sire of Distinction (CHBS) program recognizes Hereford bulls that have excelled in carcass traits. The American Hereford Association Board of Directors initiated this program in August 2007.
To qualify as a CHBS, a bull must:
Be in the top 25 percent for the CHB$ profit index.
Have a minimum accuracy level of 25 percent for both ribeye area (REA) and marbling (MARB) expected progeny difference (EPD).
The CHBS recognizes sires in the Hereford breed that excel in improving bottomline profit in the feedlot and on the rail. Although all bulls have the opportunity, only a few bulls qualify for this attribution.
A bull receiving the CHBS status will be recognized with CHB after his name when doing an animal or EPD inquiry on Hereford.org.
