Whole Herd Performance Program™

The Composite Beef Cattle Registry Whole Herd Performance Program (WHPP™) is for the tracking of registrations and performance records by participating breeders. Participation in WHPP™ is voluntary and breeders may wish to not participate.

If a breeder chooses not to participate, they will receive Pedigree Certificates with no performance data or EPDs.

Historically, many associations/registries genetic evaluations have been based on weaned and/or registered progeny and from females that failed to reproduce or whose progeny were not registered was not required. However, inventory based Whole Herd Performance Program (WHPP™) requires collection of annual production and performance records on all cattle within a herd. Cattle that are registered with other breed registries are exempt from the program with the exception that if they are bred to produce an animal to be registered with the Composite Beef Cattle Registry, they must be recorded.

The objective of WHPP™ is to gather reproductive and performance data on all animals. It does not, however, seek to control which animals will be registered. That remains a decision of individual breeders. With, performance records (or disposal codes) are required on all calves produced by each breeder, but whether any or all of those calves receive registration papers is the breeder’s decision.
