Beef cattle selection may soon be as easy as looking at a cow's genes.

FOCUS ON GOOD MANAGEMENT OF A.I. PROGRAMS
09/23/2016 05:38 PM
The use of artificial insemination in beef cow operations has never reached anywhere near the acceptance of that of the dairy industry. The reasons for this bear discussion as they typically relate to many of the problems we encounter with A.I. in beef herds.

COMPOSITE BULLS HAVE BECOME POPULAR IN SOME AREAS
09/22/2016 04:36 PM
Heterosis (hybrid vigor) has proven its value in many agricultural sectors—whether production of hybrid corn, hogs or beef. There are three kinds of heterosis; individual (the calf), maternal, and paternal. Of the three, paternal heterosis has had the least attention.

IT'S THE PITTS -- YOU NEVER KNOW

After 40 years, there is still confusion over how to use these tools.
