 Maternal Milk: Within the same breed, it shows the positive weight deviations of the offspring of cows descending from bulls. This fact is indicated in pounds. It is an indirect indicator of milk production.

Maternal M&G: It is information regarding the growth capability within the same breed, in which, the Maternal Milk EPD and the Weaning EPD are combined. The Maternal Milk EPD represents the maternal influence and the Weaning Weight EPD is isolated from the maternal component. This fact is indicated in pounds. In this value, both factors in the growth of the animal are combined, the quality of the mother (Maternal Milk) and its own genetic background (Weaning Weight, weight gain).

Act SC: This variable is indicated in centimeters and reflects the semen production potential for this individual, also indicating the early sexual maturity of the offspring.

Breed Composition: Individual proportions of combined genetics.

Yearling weight: The weight of the offspring at 365 days, will have a positive (+) or a negative (-) variation within the same breed; this variation is indicated in pounds. The maternal influence is excluded.

Tenderness & Marbling: Identify genetics indicative of superior beef quality in that animal

P: Pedigree based information of occuracy

ACC: Accuracy

EPD: Estimated Progeny Difference

Birth Weight: The weight of the offspring at 205 days, will present a positive (+) or negative (-) deviation within the same breed, this variation is shown in pounds. Maternal influence excluded, only with of its own offspring

Weaning weight: Peso da descendência deste animal aos 205 dias, Será uma variação para mais ou para menos dentro desta mesma raça. Esta variação esta mostrada em libras, excluída a influência maternal, somente dependendo dos genes da própria cria.

Herd ID: Animal identification number in the Sacramento Farms herd.

RN: Animal registration number in the association.

DOB: Date of birth of the animal.

Sire: Father of the animal.

Weight gain is an average of 20% or more, resulting from the heterosis of the crosses.
