The Value of Carcass Data...

Gibbs Farms and two neighboring customers, Baughn Farms and Lovvorn Farms recently shipped 5 loads of steers, almost 300 head of Gibbs genetics, to Cow Camp Ranch Feedlot in Ramona, Kansas for custom retained ownership feeding. At harvest, complete carcass data will be returned so that it can be submitted to the ASA for inclusion in the IGS Multi-Breed Genetic Evaluation.  This will make the 12th year that Gibbs Farms has retained ownership in their steers at Cow Camp Feedlot. This data,
along with data from cooperating customers using Gibbs genetics, has contributed more than 2,000 actual carcass records to the American Simmental Association genetic evaluation. Also for the past 12 years, Gibbs Farms has been enrolling their herd sires in the ASA Carcass Merit Program, sampling as many sires through this third party program as any other breeder in the country.

The value of carcass data is extremely important to our customer’s bottom line and to overall industry profit. At Gibbs Farms, we take carcass data collection very seriously so that our customers can have the comfort of high accuracy carcass genetics when they use a Gibbs Farms owned herd sire.
