Examples of the TAEP Beef Genetics Program Cost Share

The following tabs illustrate how to interpret the amount of cost share a buyer might receive for different scenarios. Those scenarios are current or non-current MBP and qualifying bulls that have Genetic Enhanced EPDs (GE-EPDs) and those that do not. A bull that has GE-EPDs is one that has either blood, hair samples, or tissue submitted to its breed association for DNA analysis and used in the calculation of its EPD. Bulls that have GE-EPDs have much higher accuracies and reduce the risk of possible change in their genetic evaluation for non-parent bulls.
