Breeder's Guide

The Breeder's Guide is presented as a nearly complete, operator's manual, reference source
and informational guide to the American Murray Grey Association. The first section, "Introduction to the AMGA" is
a compilation of information about the Association and Murray Grey cattle.

The second section, "Breeder's Guide Appendix" provides information about genetic evaluation, EPDs, and other
performance and evaluative information.

The third section, "Forms" contains all of the forms that a breeder might need to conduct business with the Association.
We have included instructions for filling out the forms where applicable. All of the forms are in pdf format and can be printed
out for your use as needed.

We hope the Breeder's Guide online will prove to be a valuable resource.
