EPD Info: Expected Progeny Differences (EPD) can be used to predict the average performance of a bulls offspring compared to other calves in their contemporary group. EPD's are measured in units of trait and show differences in performance between animals
Gelbvieh are one of the oldest German breeds being able to trace ancestry back to 1850. They were introduced into the United States in 1971.
Gelbvieh calves are widely recognized for excellence in growth, muscling and marketability, while Gelbvieh females are known for milking ability, fertility and quiet, gentile temperament.
Today, there are approximately 45,000 active, registered Gelbvieh cows in the United States. Most registered U.S. Gelbvieh are classified as purebreds and were bred up by mating full bloods and purebred cows.
