The data was collected by Circle A staff (an Angus breeder) and analyzed by Dan Moser, associate professor of genetics at Kansas State University and Vern Pierce, professor of agricultural economics at University of Missouri.

University of Missouri economist Vern Pierce evaluated the performance differences between the Hereford and Angus groups including birth, weaning, feedlot growth and carcass data on the steer calves, and pregnancy rates from the female progeny of the sire groups. He developed an economic model projecting the added value of Hereford heterosis over a 10-year period and found that using Hereford bulls on Angus-based females would add $514 net over the life of a cow or approximately $51 per cow per year to a rancher's bottom line.
