West Central Iowa
This is something you need to keep in mind. “The CEM EPD combines the CED value with the maternal-only effect from the genetic evaluation, using the following equation, CEM EPD = ½ CED EPD + MCE EPD, where MCE EPD is the maternal-only effect on calving ease. So CEM is not a maternal-only calving ease prediction, instead it combines direct and maternal effects to predict the rate of observed calving difficulty in a sire’s daughters.” If an animal has an overwhelming good ced they should have more than just a good cem.
