Wool Micron:
                                    Wool micron is a measurement of a side sample taken form the
 Spinning
                    Micron          wool currently being produced by the ram. Rams were shorn after
  Count
                                    February 20, 2008. The micron measurement is an estimate of the
     70’s         19.15-20.59       micron of the current fleece the ram is producing. Generally wool
     64’s         20.60-22.04       gets coarser with nutrition so we would expect these fleeces to be
                                    coarser than what the ram would produce under range condition.
     62’s         22.05-23.49       The table is helpful in relating micron measurement to spinning
     58’s         23.50-24.94       count class. Remember a sample measuring 23.4 verses one
     56’s         24.95-26.39       measuring 23.5 is basically the same even though one is a 62”s
                                    and the other is a 60’s.


Adj. Ribeye:
                                                     2
Ultrasound measurements for ribeye area (in ) and fat thickness have allowed objective
measurements for important carcass traits to be used in livestock selection programs. Most
consigners will provide potential buyers with ultrasound based information. A large portion of the
variation in ribeye area at ultrasound scanning time can be attributed to differences in body weight
(roughly 80%). For selection purposes we are primarily interested in identifying differences among
rams within the 20% variation not accounted for by weight. Selection based on actual ribeye
measurements will impact mature weight of your sheep. Additionally, selection pressure on actual
ribeye will ultimately increase the size of your sheep. Adjusting scanning ribeye estimates to a
constant weight (weight adjustment) will facilitate a fair comparison of rams and allow focus on the
variation in ribeye not accounted for by body weight.
                                         2
a.   Weight-adjusted Ribeye Area ( in ) in black-faced ram lambs is adjusted to 150 lbs and 190 lbs
     for white-face yearling rams. This should put all of your rams on an equal basis regardless of
     weight.

b.   Weight-adjusted Ribeye Area Ratio (Ratio) is calculated a within flock for the adjusted REA.
     The within flock ratio is the comparative value that is probably the most appropriate for use at the
     Miles City Ram Sale.

An important note for consigners and potential buyers to remember is white-face sheep and black-face
sheep are weight adjusted to different target weights. Therefore, comparisons should not be made
regarding weight adjusted ribeye between these groups of sheep. The same can be said for different
growers with in the same breed. There are differences between growers with regard to management
and breeding, consequently, comparisons should not be made between consigners with in a breed.

So when you look for rams at Miles City Ram Sale take a look at the "Weight Adjusted Ribeye" and
"Weight Adjusted Ribeye Ratio" as these numbers will provide you with the most information about the
genetic potential for improving the carcass merit of your flock.
Expected Progeny Differences (Whiteface):
The most useful tool for identifying an individual’s genetic merit for performance is the expected
progeny difference (EPD) values that are available from across-flock national genetic evaluations such
as those offered through the National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP). Expected progeny
differences are calculated using animal
performance records with pedigree relationships to
predict the future offspring’s relative performance in
the flock.

a. WW: Weaning Weight EPD (120-day) provides
   an estimate of pre-weaning growth potential.

b. YW: Yearling Weight EPD combines
   information on pre-weaning and post-weaning
   growth to predict genetic merit for post-
   weaning. It provides some indication of mature
   body size.

c.   M: Maternal Milk EPD provides an indication of the genetic merit for mothering ability. This EPD
     primarily reflects genetic differences in ewe milk production potential as realized in her lambs.
     The maternal milk EPD is thus expressed in pounds of lamb weaned, not pounds of milk
     produced. It is derived by evaluating if individual ewes produce lambs that do better or worse than
     expected based on the weaning weight EPDs of the parents. Ewes whose lambs grow faster to
     weaning than predicted are assumed to be better milk producers whereas ewes whose lambs
     grow more slowly than predicted to weaning are assumed to produce less milk. This relationship
     between maternal milk EPD and actual milk production has been validated in beef cattle and is
     assumed to be similar in sheep, although other elements of maternal behavior may also be
     included in the maternal milk EPD. Selection for high maternal milk EPDs is anticipated to
     improve milk production and mothering ability in the flock.

d. M+G: Milk plus Growth EPD combines information on weaning weight and maternal milk EPDs to
   provide an index of the total anticipated contribution of an animal's daughters to lamb weaning
   weight. It recognizes that the genetic contribution of a ewe to the weaning weight of her lambs,
   which is the effects of her milk production (measured by the maternal milk EPD) and one half of
   her genes for pre-weaning growth potential (measured by the weaning weight EPD).

e. FW: Fleece Weight EPD provides an estimate of the animal's genetic potential for wool
   production. It is based primarily on yearling wool production, although some records on older
   animals have also been used to derive the fleece weight EPD.

f.   FD: Fiber Diameter provides an estimate of genetic merit for fleece fineness. Note that animals
     with finer fleeces have negative values for the fleece grade EPD. Negative values for fleece grade
     EPD are thus desired for this trait.

g. SL: Staple Length EPD characterizes genetic merit for the length of the staple, or the wool fiber,
   in yearling fleeces.

h.    NLB: Number Lambs Born EPD evaluates genetic potential for prolificacy. This EPD is
     expressed as numbers of lambs born per 100 ewes lambing. An EPD of +5.0 for number lambs
     born thus indicates that an animal is expected to produce daughters who will have an average of
     .05 more lambs at each lambing, or 5.0 more lambs per 100 lambings, than an average ewe.
     Selection on number of lambs born EPD is expected to increase prolificacy in the flock.
Range Profitability Index (Targhee):
Expected progeny differences (EPD’s) tend to be used for animal comparisons with each EPD focused
on a single production trait. From their inception, (expected progeny differences (EPD’s) have been
geared toward outputs, focusing on end products or weights with the presumption that more is better.
This has led some breeders to think extreme EPD values are ideal. However, in many commercial
applications many traits and relationships between traits can greatly influence profits. A selection
index is a formal method of combining EPD’s for different traits into one single value on which some
selection decisions can be based. A profit or value index combines these production parameters with
broad or general economic estimates. Whereas EPD’s have focused on measuring output of
individual traits without any consideration to their relationship to other traits, profitability indexes offer a
simplified approach to multi-trait selection and, with an economic layer, weigh the value of outputs
against the expenses incurred to achieve them. They enable breeders and their commercial ram
buyers to select sires that maximize profit under commercial production situations. They are
customized to a usual production system and are just as much concerned with costs of production as
they are with market returns.

The “Western Range Index” was developed for the Targhee breed with the extensive range producer
in mind. It is based on producers selling feeder lambs (price discounts for heavy lambs) and relatively
inexpensive feed resources. Applying this index will result in modest increases in both weaning
weight, percent lamb crop and somewhat smaller but positive increases in maternal milk. Although
negative selection pressure is placed on yearling weight in the index, index selection in the western
range index still allows mature body size to increase. Increased body size occurring as a result of
using the index is due to the selection pressure being placed on weaning weight and the strong
relationship between weaning weight and mature body size. The negative selection pressure placed
on mature body size in the index is a way to put maximum selection pressure on weaning weight but
slow the increase in mature body size.

Profit indexes, like any tool, must be used carefully to avoid undesirable results. Because selection
indexes allow one trait to compensate for another trait, they can select animals which are extremely
favorable for a single trait and somewhat undesirable for several others. Producers should scrutinize
the individual EPD’s of the top indexing animals to be sure all EPD’s are within an acceptable range.
In addition, producers may want to consider applying independent culling levels for traits not included
in the index.


Weight/Day of Age (Blackface):

Weight per day of age provide some indication of that rams potential for growth and should assist you
in prediction the potential contribution that a particular ram will make toward the weaning weight of his
lambs. This measurement along with the ribeye should assist in identifying those animals that will sire
more desirable terminal cross lambs. Note a one or two pound increase in potential weaning weights
of his lambs could result in significant increases in income.

a.   Weight/day of age (lb/day of age) is the of that ram divided by the days of age at the time rams
     Ribeye was measured which was around 150lbs.

b.   Weight-adjusted Ribeye Area Ratio (Ratio) is calculated a within flock. The within flock ratio is
     the comparative value that is probably the most appropriate for use at the Miles City Ram Sale.
Genotype:

Genes are made up of stretches of DNA, which is the basic hereditary material of organisms.
Variations in proteins (amino acid sequences) are coded for by different forms of genes, known as
alleles. In the case of scrapie, the amino acid of most interest is located at codon 171. There are two
basic alleles (forms of the gene) at codon 171 that have been found to be related to scrapie
susceptibility or resistance. The "Q" allele is known to produce proteins that are susceptible to
conversion to scrapie prions. The "R" allele is thought to produce proteins that are not susceptible to
this conversion to the scrapie prion (resistant). A sheep will have two copies of the prion gene in each
cell. Therefore, a sheep may have a genotype of "QQ", "QR", or "RR" at codon 171. Sheep with at
least one "R" have increased resistance to scrapie, and sheep with the "QQ" genotype are most
susceptible. It is important to recognize that "QQ" sheep are not necessarily carriers of scrapie or
infected with the disease. To be a carrier or to acquire the disease, sheep must be exposed to the
scrapie agent (regardless of their genotype). Therefore, genotypes "RR" and "QR" are likely to be
more resistant to the scrapie disease than "QQ" sheep IF they are exposed.
