Fifty-four Hereford breeders achieved Gold TPR™ (Total Performance Records) status for fall 2017.
The Gold TPR Breeder recognition is presented to progressive Hereford breeders who have measured traits and collected and promptly submitted performance data at all levels of production.
The Gold TPR program was established was to recognize those breeders who go the extra mile to collect data at all levels of production and to report that data in a timely manner. Since the program’s inception in 2005, Hereford breeders have increased their data collection efforts.
Breeders must meet a specific set of requirements in order to be eligible for the program. They are:
• Submit herd inventory prior to date inventory surcharge goes into effect.
• Complete reporting of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on inventory.
• Complete reporting of birth weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop.
• Complete reporting of weaning weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop.
• Complete reporting of yearling weights for all live calves recorded in the calf crop.
• Complete reporting of scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight.
• Report ultrasound data on 25% or more of the calf crop.
Note: For weaning and yearling weights, disposal codes are accepted if the animal has been removed from the herd.
