 Sire Reference Schemes
A sire reference scheme is a group of breeders who get together and agree on using the same sire or sires to breed a portion of their flock.
A sire reference scheme: increases the accuracy of across flock evaluations for the flocks involved in the scheme, provides the genetic advantages of a much larger flock and provides the opportunity to nominate animals as a reference ram which may provide benefits of semen sales in the long-term.
Sire reference schemes will be able to make changes to their product faster than an individual flock because of the larger animal numbers that are comparable for selection and the ability to use an individual animal to breed ewes in many different flocks.

 Popular Sires
Sometimes a sire will be so heavily used that, decades hence, breeders may not even be aware of how closely bred their animals are because the dog no longer appears on their pedigrees.
Since sons and grandsons of popular sires tend to become popular sires the trend continues, resulting in further decrease and even extinction of some genes while others become homozygous throughout the breed.
Owners of such sires should give serious consideration to limiting how often that dog is used, annually, through its lifetime and on into the future, if frozen semen is stored.

Sire Records was formed in 1966 by record entreprenuers Seymour Stein and Richard Gottehrer.
Sire was the label to boost American punk bands like Ramones, Talking Heads, and Richard Hell & the Voidoids, only to call them new wave in an effort to make them seem less antagonistic and more marketable.

 Select Sires Inc. - Sire Fertility, Part 1
The ERCR is based on a non-return rate, which means if the cow is not once inseminated, the sire code is identified that the cow has not been re-inseminated after a period of time (usually 90 days), and they assume that the cow is pregnant to the last sire reported.
So, the estimates are not absolute estimates of exact sire fertility, but on a relative basis, when you compare one sire to another, which is done much like sires are compared for our PTA or milk, or any other trait which we have a predicted transmitting ability, the relative differences among sires is quite accurate.
What is unique about the sire fertility estimates that are made there, which are being put together in cooperation with Dr. Kent Wigel at the University of Wisconsin, is that these sire fertility estimates are based on actual pregnancy outcomes.

Thoroughbred sires with major influences on warmblood breeding, now so prevalent in international jumping competitions, have also been included, along with some of their warmblood sons and some examples of the sons' progeny.

The AICA Terminal Sire Profitability Index utilizes economic and management descriptions of your ranching operation, along with EPD on available Charolais bulls to assist in identifying the most profitable sires for your unique operation.
For example, if sire A's index is $110.50 and sire B's index is $115.00, then we would expect Sire B's offspring to average $4.50 more net return ($115.00 - $110.50) than sire A's offspring.
It is important to remember that this is a Terminal Sire Index and should not be used as the sole selection tool for producing replacement females.
