published in September 2018. The
BOLT-generated EPDs are documented
to be better and more accurate than
EPDs of the past. Red Angus worked
with 12 other breeds to calculate
those EPDs, something that’s a little

are working together for the betterment
of commercial cattle producers.
It’s really appropriate that breeders
work together in this way and much
will be accomplished in doing so.”
