Gold TPR Breeder

Gold TPR Breeder The Gold TPR program was established in 2005 to recognize those breeders who participate in the Association’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™) Program that was implemented in 2000 to create a more accurate database and increase the value of Hereford genetics.
 
To qualify for the prestigious award the breeder must submit his or her herd inventory prior to the inventory surcharge deadline and must have on record at AHA a complete report of calving ease and reproductive status for each dam on the inventory. A complete set of birth, weaning and yearling weights is also required as well as scrotal measurements for each bull calf with a recorded yearling weight. In addition, Gold TPR Breeders must report ultrasound data on 25% or more of their calf crop.
